Jensen Huang, CEO of NVIDIA, officially unveiled the RTX 4090, RTX 4080 16GB and RTX 4080 12GB models, the first SKUs in the next-generation graphics series codenamed "Ada Lovelace".
NVIDIA RTX 4090
The new flagship video card is equipped with AD102-300 GPU with 16384 CUDA cores and boost clock up to 2520 MHz. That means single-precision performance of 82.6 TFLOPS, 2.3 times higher than its predecessor RTX 3090. The flagship SKU based on the Ada architecture will be equipped with 24 GB of GDDR6X memory, with peak bandwidth at 1 TB/s. The RTX 4090 will require even more power than the 3090 Ti with a TDP of 450W.
NVIDIA RTX 4080
The RTX 4080 16GB features an AD103 GPU with 9728 CUDA cores, a total of 16GB of GDDR6X memory clocked at 22.5Gbps , and a TDP of 320W. The launch of this model is scheduled for November at a price of $ 1199.
Instead the RTX 4080 12GB is equipped with AD104 GPU and 7680 CUDA cores. As the name suggests, this model is equipped with 12 GB of GDDR6X memory and a TDP of 285W. NVIDIA has set a price of $899 for this SKU.
The third generation of Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) has also been announced, which will be able to generate additional frames and increase game performance up to two times.
In addition to Cyberpunk 2077 and Microsoft Flight Simulator, DLSS 3 will also be available in Portal RTX, coming to Steam later this year as a free download for Portal owners.
The new video cards will be available from October 12th, we just have to see the real street prices and availability.
