Nvidia has been heating things up for several days and has finally not disappointed. The company led by Jensen Huang has unveiled its new family of graphics cards, the much-desired RTX 4000. Specifically, the two top-of-the-range models such as the RTX 4090 and the RTX 4080.
The first to appear will be the older sister on October 12, in less than a month. Its launch price will be $1,599, which in exchange is about 1,600 euros, and according to company estimates, it quadruples the performance currently offered by the RTX 3090 Ti.
Another of the most interesting novelties is the presentation of the evolution of Nvidia’s DLSS, which will reach the third phase. The DLSS 3 will be included in this line of GPUs. On the other hand, the RTX 4090 will have a power consumption of 450W, similar to the RTX 3090 Ti. 76 billion transistors, 16,384 CUDA cores and 24GB of GDDR6X memory accompany the inside to achieve 100FPS at 4K resolution without suffering.
On the other side we come across the RTX 4080, which will take a little longer to appear, being scheduled for sometime in November, without specifying a date. We can expect improvements between double and quadruple those offered by an RTX 3080 Ti and its starting price will be 1,199 euros, about 1,200 euros, or 899 dollars, around 900 euros.
Beyond the aforementioned DLSS 3, the RTX 4080 will have the 16GB model, with 9,728 CUDA cores and 16GB of memory, which guarantees the twice the speed of the RTX 3080 Ti. On the other side we have a 12GB RTX 4080, with 7,680 CUDA cores and 12GB of memory, surpassing the performance of an RTX 3090 Ti.
