GeForce RTX 4070 is the most popular Ada GPU, and there are more Steam Decks than any RDNA card

Kosta Andreadis | Jan 2, 2024 10:02 PM CST

The latest Steam Hardware and Software Survey results for December 2023 are here, and closing out the year, we've got another look at what GPU PC gamers are rocking to play games. Top of the list is the GeForce RTX 3060, retaining its spot as the most popular graphics card - followed by other mainstream GPUs from NVIDIA like the GeForce GTX 1650, GTX 1060, RTX 2060, and RTX 3060 Ti.

Yeah, the GeForce GTX 1060 is still going strong. The top twenty GPUs are all GeForce cards, with a few integrated offerings from AMD and Intel. As we're heading into 2024 and the release of NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 Series SUPER cards, the most popular desktop model for the Ada Lovelace generation is the GeForce RTX 4070 - cracking the top twenty with a 1.53% share.

That isn't the most popular Ada GPU, as the GeForce RTX 4060 Laptop GPU sits above this, with a 1.96% share. The next three desktop Ada cards in the list are the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti, GeForce RTX 4060 Ti, and GeForce RTX 4060 - in that order.

GIGABYTE plans 3 different GeForce RTX 4090 D cards, no factory OC included

Anthony Garreffa | Jan 1, 2024 11:33 PM CST

NVIDIA's newly-tweaked GeForce RTX 4090 D is on its way to China as we speak, with AIB partner GIGABYTE preparing a few different RTX 4090 D models for the country.

GIGABYTE plans 3 different GeForce RTX 4090 D cards, no factory OC included

In some new leaks, we're getting a gander at the GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 4090 D AERO, GeForce RTX 4090 D WINDFORCE, and the GeForce RTX 4090 D GAMING. All of them have the cut-down AD102 GPU, with the same 24GB of GDDR6X memory as the regular RTX 4090 non-D.

One of the big changes is that none of GIGABYTE's custom GeForce RTX 4090 D graphics cards have any form of factory overclocking, which would bump them over the US export restrictions. NVIDIA has reportedly hard-locked the 425W TDP on the RTX 4090 D, meaning that AIB partners only have a little bit of wiggle room when it comes to GPU clock speeds.

The GeForce RTX 4090 D for China is 5% slower with fewer CUDA Cores and the same 24 GB of VRAM

Kosta Andreadis | Jan 1, 2024 10:28 PM CST

NVIDIA's new GeForce RTX 4090 D is the company's flagship Ada Lovelace GPU for the Chinese market after the existing GeForce RTX 4090 was effectively banned from sale for being too powerful to sell in the region. The GeForce RTX 4090 D complies with all current US government export rules and regulations for selling GPU hardware in the region - and it's launching this month.

And with that, NVIDIA has updated its GeForce RTX 40 Series line-up with a new entry outlining the GeForce RTX 4090 D specs. In a statement provided to the press, NVIDIA confirms that the GeForce RTX 4090 D is only 5% slower than the existing GeForce RTX 4090 for gaming and creative workloads.

NVIDIA also confirms that it extensively engaged with the US government when developing the GeForce RTX 4090 D.

NVIDIA giving away custom GeForce RTX 4080 Cyberpunk 2077 Edition GPU in China

Anthony Garreffa | Jan 1, 2024 9:01 PM CST

NVIDIA has been hard at work for the Chinese market, first with the newly tweaked AD102-based GeForce RTX 4090 D graphics card exclusive to the Chinese market, and now a giveaway.

NVIDIA giving away custom GeForce RTX 4080 Cyberpunk 2077 Edition GPU in China

The company is giving away a sleek GeForce RTX 4080 Cyberpunk 2077 Edition graphics card, another custom design that features Cyberpunk 2077 all over it. This isn't NVIDIA's first time with a custom Cyberpunk 2077-themed graphics card, as it did so with the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and then the GeForce RTX 3080 Cyberpunk 2077 Edition graphics cards.

NVIDIA's new custom GeForce RTX 4080 Cyberpunk 2077 Edition graphics card is inspired by the Arasaka organization from the Cyberpunk 2077 game itself. It moves away from the usual aesthetic of Cyberpunk 2077 -- yellow and black -- with a black and chrome style that looks beautiful... at least in the photos, I'm sure it looks even better in the flesh.

NVIDIA's new GeForce 546.34 WHQL drivers add support for RTX 4090 D graphics card

Anthony Garreffa | Jan 1, 2024 8:39 PM CST

You can't buy NVIDIA's new GeForce RTX 4090 D graphics card in China just yet, but the company has just unleashed new GPU drivers that support the RTX 4090 D. You can grab the new GeForce Game Ready 546.34 WHQL drivers here (670MB download).

NVIDIA's new GeForce 546.34 WHQL drivers add support for RTX 4090 D graphics card

NVIDIA was forced to tweak its AD102-powered GeForce RTX 4090 into the GeForce RTX 4090 D graphics card for the China market after the Biden administration penciled in new US sanctions. The new GeForce RTX 4090 D graphics card has been cut down to meet those new US export restrictions, and now NVIDIA has its new GeForce Game Ready 546.34 WHQL drivers that support the new RTX 4090 D graphics card.

This isn't a new driver with the usual optimizations and fixes, but rather it's a new driver release that is based on NVIDIA's previous mid-December GPU driver release. The change log hasn't changed, as the new GPU drivers also feature Game Ready support for THE FINALS and Fortnite: Chapter 5.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 SUPER rumor: 16GB of faster GDDR6X memory at 23Gbps

Anthony Garreffa | Jan 1, 2024 7:38 PM CST

NVIDIA is just days away from revealing its new GeForce RTX 40 SUPER series of graphics cards, and now we have more details on the new GeForce RTX 4080 SUPER.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 SUPER rumor: 16GB of faster GDDR6X memory at 23Gbps

The upcoming NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 SUPER graphics card will boast the same 16GB of GDDR6X memory as the GeForce RTX 4080 non-SUPER, except it'll be a little faster. We're hearing that NVIDIA is using 23Gbps GDDR6X modules for its new RTX 4080 SUPER, providing a 2.6% boost in bandwidth.

This means we'll see the GeForce RTX 4080 SUPER with 16GB of GDDR6X memory at 23Gbps on a 256-bit memory bus, providing up to 736GB/sec of memory bandwidth. NVIDIA's other two GeForce RTX 40 SUPER series graphics cards: the RTX 4070 Ti SUPER and RTX 4070 SUPER, will retain their 21Gbps GDDR6X memory, the same as their non-SUPER counterparts.

ASUS GeForce RTX 4070 SUPER 12GB includes new 12V-2x6 power connector

Anthony Garreffa | Dec 27, 2023 10:08 PM CST

ASUS has a new custom GeForce RTX 4070 SUPER 12GB graphics card on the way, and now we've got some leaked photos of the new card, which rocks the updated 12V-2x6 power connector.

ASUS GeForce RTX 4070 SUPER 12GB includes new 12V-2x6 power connector

The upcoming ASUS GeForce RTX 4070 SUPER DUAL graphics card features a dual-fan custom design and a smaller 2.46-slot form factor which makes it perfect for smaller rigs. You'll have the updated RTX 4070 SUPER inside, which should get you closer to 10-15% more performance over the RTX 4070 non-SUPER card.

We can also see that ASUS is extending the backplate on the back of the RTX 4070 SUPER DUAL graphic card, which extends past the PCB itself. Nice touch there, ASUS.

AMD could be launching non-XT Radeon RX 7800 and 7700 GPUs, alongside a Radeon RX 7600 XT

Kosta Andreadis | Dec 27, 2023 9:04 PM CST

AMD could be prepping to launch a new range of RDNA 3 GPUs for desktops in 2024, with regulatory filings pointing to three new variants - the Radeon RX 7700, Radeon RX 7800, and Radeon RX 7600 XT. New components must be registered with the EEC (Eurasian Economic Commission) before making their way to the market - and this info comes via relatively unknown GPU maker Artek.

However, model names and variants can often be listed to cover all bases - even those that exist but are eventually canceled. Looking at the current Radeon RX 7000 Series line-up, there are some definite gaps and holes to fill when you remove RDNA 2 and previous-generation Radeon RX 6000 series graphics cards from the equation.

As per our review of the Sapphire PURE AMD Radeon RX 7700 XT, 1080p gaming presents a 37.8% performance increase or uplift over the mainstream and entry-level Radeon RX 7600. A truly massive gap leaves plenty of room for either a Radeon RX 7600 XT or a Radeon RX 7700.
