Nvidia unveils RTX 4090 – but it's the 4080 to watch out for


Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang unveiled his GPU giant's flagship RTX 40-series graphics cards at GTC today.

Powered by Nv's Ada Lovelace microarchitecture and a TSMC 4nm process, the RTX 4090 and 4080 are said to offer more than twice the performance of the previous 3090 TI and 3080 TI flagships.

Kicking things off with the RTX 4090, the unit bears more than a passing resemblance to 3090 TI Huang was comparing it to during his keynote presentation. The card features the same 24GB compliment of GDDR6X memory, including a 384-bit interface, and 450W TDP as the 3090 TI.

Beyond that, the new card’s specs suggest it will deliver substantially higher performance, presumably thanks to architectural and process node improvements. The 4090 packs 16,384 CUDA cores, up from 10,752 in the 3090 TI, while simultaneously, Nvidia has pushed base clocks from 1.67 GHz to 2 ...
