NVIDIA has officially revealed its next-gen GeForce RTX 40 series "Ada Lovelace" GPUs with the introduction of the GeForce RTX 4090, and two new GeForce RTX 4080 (16GB + 12GB) graphics cards.
Now that the launch is out of the way, NVIDIA has detailed its upcoming GeForce RTX 40 series Founders Edition graphics cards, discussing the upgrades that are under the RTX 40 series FE hood, and so much more. NVIDIA says that they'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.
NVIDIA says that memory temperatures "are reduced", while the new, "substantially more powerful" Ada GPUs are "kept cool in ventilated cases, giving gamers excellent overclocking headroom". NVIDIA is reducing cable clutter once again, with the new GeForce RTX 40 series Founders Edition graphics cards featuring a next-gen ATX 3.0-capaple PCIe Gen5 16-pin power connector.
COLORFUL has just announced a bunch of new GeForce RTX 4090 and GeForce RTX 4080 16GB + RTX 4080 12GB graphics cards, so let's dive right into what the next-gen Ada Lovelace offerings have in store.
The company is introducing three different custom GeForce RTX 4090 graphics cards today, with COLORFUL announcing the iGame GeForce RTX® 4090 Vulcan OC-V, the iGame GeForce RTX® 4090 Neptune OC-V, and the GeForce RTX® 4090 NB EX-V graphics cards.
COLORFUL's new flagship iGame GeForce RTX® 4090 Vulcan OC-V features an updated look over its Ampere-based predecessor, with the new iGame RTX 4090 Vulcan OC-V featuring COLORFUL's new Hurricane Scythe Blade: a new and improved fan blade design that produces more airflow at lower noise levels compared to the previous-gen Storm Chaser fan design.
NVIDIA has just announced its next-gen Ada Lovelace GPU architecture and out of the box, we have the announcement of NVIDIA's next-gen AI upscaling technology: DLSS 3.
DLSS 3 launches with Ada Lovelace, with NVIDIA promising FPS boosts of up to 4x with DLSS 3 enabled. NVIDIA's new DLSS is the next evolution of neural graphics, which combines DLSS Super Resolution, all-new DLSS Frame Generation, and NVIDIA Reflex, running on the new hardware capabilities of GeForce RTX 40 Series GPUs.
NVIDIA's new DLSS 3 offers up to 4x performance "over brute-force rendering" with DLSS 3 already adopted into the gaming ecosystem, with over 35 games supporting DLSS 3 and much more on the way. DLSS 3 is powered by the 4th Gen Tensor Cores and Optical Flow Accelerator inside of the NVIDIA Ada Lovelace GPU architecture, which is inside of the new GeForce RTX 40 series graphics cards.
NVIDIA has finally announced its next-gen Ada Lovelace GPU architecture and with it three new GeForce RTX 40 series graphics cards: the flagship GeForce RTX 4090, and two new GeForce RTX 4080 graphics cards.
The new GeForce RTX 4080 is exactly as the rumors suggested: split into the RTX 4080 16GB and RTX 4080 12GB. NVIDIA's new GeForce RTX 4080 16GB features the AD103-300 GPU made on TSMC's new 4N process node, with 9728 CUDA cores, and a GPU boost clock of up to 2510MHz.
There's 16GB of GDDR6X memory on a 256-bit memory bus clocked at 22.5Gbps, offering up to 720GB/sec of memory bandwidth. NVIDIA's new GeForce RTX 4080 16GB graphics card has a default TGP of 320W.
NVIDIA has just announced its next-gen Ada Lovelace GPU architecture and three new GeForce RTX 40 series graphics cards, with the new flagship GeForce RTX 4090 finally detailed in all its next-gen GPU glory.
The new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card features the AD102 GPU and made on TSMC's new 4nm process node, with a chunky 76 billion transistors inside of the RTX 4090. The new AD102-300 GPU has 16384 CUDA cores and a GPU boost clock of up to 2520MHz (just like all of the leaks have been saying, really).
NVIDIA has its 3rd Gen RT core and 4th Gen Tensor Core inside of the Ada Lovelace GPU-powered GeForce RTX 40 series graphics cards, as well as support for NVIDIA's next-gen DLSS 3 upscaling technology. NVIDIA's next-gen GeForce RTX 4090 still rolls out with 24GB of GDDR6X memory clocked at 21Gbps (just like the RTX 3090 Ti), which will be on a 384-bit memory bus that will feature up to 1TB/sec+ of memory bandwidth.
I'm sitting in front of my PC at 11pm at night my time waiting with excitement for NVIDIA and its big next-gen GeForce reveal, and bam... AMD teases its next-gen RDNA 3 GPU reveal for November 3.
Just 2 hours away... 120 minutes and AMD is here to announce its next-gen Radeon RX 7000 series "RDNA 3" graphics card family will be unveiled on November 3. The news is coming directly from Scott Herkelmen, Senior Vice President and General Manager at AMD Radeon who tweeted out the news and told gamers to save the date for RDNA 3.
AMD is showing that it's a bit tougher this generation, after a very strong round with RDNA 2 the company is ready to strike again with RDNA 3 against Ada Lovelace. We've been hearing more and more about AMD's next-gen Radeon RX 7900 XT flagship GPU, rocking Navi 31 with AIB partners ready to clock the GPU "to the moon" as well as 24GB of GDDR6 memory (up from 16GB on the RX 6950 XT and 6900 XT cards).
Intel's still-not-yet-released Arc A770 Limited Edition graphics card just got into the hands of company CEO Pat Gelsinger, and YouTuber "MKBHD" who put it in his PC in his latest video. Check it out:
In his new video titled "Building a PC Using YouTuber Merch!" the YouTuber uses an Intel Core i9-12900K processor, days before Intel's new Core i9-13900K is announced, yet an unreleased Intel Arc A770 Limited Edition graphics card, too. MKBHD used an ASUS ProArt Z690 Creator Wi-Fi motherboard and G.SKILL's TridentZ DDR5 RAM, with 64GB DDR5 installed.
Sabrent's wicked-fast Rocket 4 Plus PCIe 4.0 SSDs were used, and a ridiculously over-the-top PSU in the ASUS Thor 1200W PSU was used inside of MKBHD's new PC. Corsair's slick H150i Elite LCD CPU cooler was used to chill the Core i9-13900K, while the entire PC was housed inside of the Corsair 4000X RGB chassis.
As we get closer to the big GeForce Beyond special broadcast at NVIDIA GTC 2022 in just over 13 hours' time, we're hearing more and more about AMD's new Radeon RX 7000 series "RDNA 3" GPUs.
AMD has posted up a new "Advancing Performance Per Watt to Benefit Gamers" article on its website, where the company details how important, and how much work it has put into performance per watt. NVIDIA's next-gen GeForce RTX 4090 is expected to have a default 450W TGP, and a massive 660W+ TGP when overclocked, so it comes as no surprise that AMD is highlighting power efficiency.
In the article, AMD answers why performance per watt is so important: producing less heat, consuming less power, and enjoying more performance over longer periods of time on top of saving money (power is getting more expensive worldwide). AMD put everything it learned from their successful Ryzen desktop and mobile processors into their Radeon graphics architecture to make RDNA 2 an "extremely efficient GPU architecture".
AMD compares its fleet of RDNA 2-powered Radeon RX 6000 series GPUs against NVIDIA's current Ampere-based GeForce RTX 30 series in what it calls the "AMD Competitive Advantage". Starting at the top, AMD's flagship Radeon RX 6950 XT with a cost of $949 and 335W TBP offers up to 11% more FPS for the money and up to 13% better performance per watt.
AMD's new Radeon RX 7000 series "RDNA 3" GPUs aren't too far away now, and with rumors of the Radeon RX 7900 XT hot and fresh, so too are teases that we could expect GPU clocks to reach "almost" 4.0GHz on RDNA 3.
The news is coming from leaker "9550Pro" on Twitter, who simply teased "almost 4GHz GPU" in a new tweet with AMD CEO Dr. Lisa SU in the background when AMD teased its upcoming Radeon RX 7000 series "RDNA 3" graphics card recently. If we consider that AMD's current-gen RDNA 2-based GPUs can reach almost 3.0GHz and sometimes over depending on the GPU, the huge bump up to almost 4.0GHz would be incredible.
NVIDIA's flagship GPUs aren't pushing that, with the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti hitting 2000MHz or so and tapping out, the next-gen GeForce RTX 40 series "Ada Lovelace" GPUs are expected to get much closer to 3.0GHz, while the flagship AD102-based GeForce RTX 4090 is expected to reach 2520MHz boost GPU clock for 450W... and up to 660W when overclocked.
Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger has tweeted that his buddy Raja Koduri has sent him over a present: a brand new Intel Arc A770 Limited Edition graphics card.
The new Intel Arc A770 Limited Edition graphics card was personally delivered by Raja, with Pat tweeting that the company is "now getting first batch of A770 cards ready for retail". Intel initially showed off the Arc A770 Limited Edition back over two months ago now, but I guess we're a few days closer to the -- still unknown -- launch date.
Intel has its upcoming 13th Gen Core "Raptor Lake" CPUs and new enthusiast-ready Z790 motherboards right around the corner, with the Intel Innovation event penciled in for September 27. We'll be introduced to the new family of Raptor Lake CPUs, especially the new flagship Core i9-13900K which we've been hearing about for a while now.
