Every two years, NVIDIA treats us to new GPUs. 2018 was the year of the RTX 2000-series GPUs, while in 2020, the company introduced us to the RTX 3000-series with massive improvements over their predecessors. Now, it’s time for what’s next, as the company finally revealed the RTX 4000-series.
NVIDIA announced its third-generation GeForce RTX GPUs, Ada Lovelace (Ada for short), succeeding the 2nd-gen Ampere and 1st-gen Turing cards. This new generation delivers up to 76 billion transistors and 18,000 CUDA cores. The new GPUs also have improved, new-gen ray tracing cores, as well as improved Tensor cores. They also come with DLSS 3, which NVIDIA claims is vastly improved from the previous version — and it can supposedly deliver a 4x increase in frame rates over native rendering. We’ll have to see it in action to see how it compares.
As for the cards themselves, NVIDIA announced both the RTX 4090 and the RTX 4080. The flagship 4090 comes with 16,384 CUDA cores and a boost clock speed of 2.52 GHz. It also has a whopping 24GB of GDDR6X VRAM. NVIDIA says that the 4090 is up to two times faster than…
