During the Nvidia GTC 22 event, Nvidia officially unveiled three new RTX 40-series graphics cards, the latest addition to its GeForce GPU lineup. The new GPUs are built on the company’s “Ada Lovelace” architecture. In addition, the company has announced its new DLSS3 image upscaling technology.

The event announced three graphic cards: the RTX 4090, followed by two variants of the RTX 4080: a 16 GB variant and a comparatively cheaper 12 GB variant.

The first GPU announced during the event was Nvidia’s latest RTX 4090, which the company claims is the most powerful consumer card ever produced by Nvidia.

The Ada Lovelace generation’s top card is the RTX 4090. It will come with a whopping 24GB of GDDR6X memory. Nvidia claims it is 2-4x faster than the RTX 3090 Ti while consuming the same amount of power. Based on a PC with a Ryzen 5900X processor, Nvidia recommends a power supply of at least 850 watts.

The RTX 4090 has 16,384 CUDA Cores, a base clock of 2.23GHz that can be increased to 2.52GHz, 1,321 Tensor-TFLOPs, 191 RT-TFLOPs, and 83 Shader-TFLOPs.

The RTX 4080 is available in two models, one with 12GB of GDDR6X memory and another with 16GB of GDDR6X memory, and Nvidia claims it is 2-4x faster than the current RTX 3080 Ti. The 12GB model will cost $899 and will have 7,680 CUDA Cores, a base clock of 2.31GHz that can be increased to 2.61GHz, 639 Tensor-TFLOPs, 92 RT-TFLOPs, and 40 Shader-TFLOPs.

The RTX 4080 16GB model is more than just a memory upgrade. It costs $1,199 and has 9,728 CUDA Cores, a base clock of 2.21GHz that can be increased to 2.51GHz, 780 Tensor-TFLOPs, 113 RT-TFLOPs, and 49 Shader-TFLOPs of power. The 12GB RTX 4080 model will require a 700-watt power supply, while the 16GB model will require at least a 750-watt power supply. Both RTX 4080 models will launch in November.

All three RTX 40-series cards will include new Nvidia ShadowPlay support, allowing them to capture gameplay at up to 8K resolution at 60fps in HDR. Nvidia is also using its latest Encoders (NVENC) with AV1 encoding support and improved efficiency for AV1 livestreams.

A new RTX launch would be incomplete without Nvidia’s own Founders Edition graphics cards. Nvidia will sell its own-designed GeForce RTX 4090 and RTX 4080 (16GB) graphics cards. The company has upgraded the design yet again.

“For our new GeForce RTX 40 Series Founders Edition graphics cards, we’ve further optimized the Dual Axial Flow Through system, increasing fan sizes and fin volume by 10%, and upgrading to a 23-phase power supply,” explains Andrew Burnes, technical marketer at Nvidia. “Memory temperatures are reduced, and the new, substantially more powerful Ada GPUs are kept cool in ventilated cases, giving gamers excellent overclocking headroom.”

Instead of the custom solution it created for its own RTX 30-series Founders Edition GPUs, Nvidia is supporting the PCIe Gen-5 16-pin connector with its own RTX 40-series cards. It’s a single cable that will power a 40-series card, similar to the previous connector, or you can use an adapter included in the box to connect three 8-pin power connectors. Nvidia suggests connecting a fourth one for “more overclocking headroom.”

ATX 3.0 power supplies with PCIe Gen-5 16-pin connectors will be available in October from Asus, Cooler Master, FSP, Gigabyte, iBuyPower, MSI, and Thermaltake. More models from other manufacturers are also on the way.
