GeForce RTX 4090 founder edition review
NVIDIA unveiled their much-anticipated Series 4000 graphics cards, beginning with the GeForce RTX 4090 founder edition. The new graphics card provides greater performance at all fronts, more extensive raytracing features, and DLSS 3.0 thanks to upgraded Tensor cores. Join us for a thorough examination.
While we all had a reasonably dull year in terms of technology, Q3/Q4 2022 is loaded with new released. Among them is NVIDIA's first ADA GPU architecture graphics card for the consumer market. The business has unveiled its new GPU design for next-generation gaming PCs. In the short term, two or three variants of GPUs are expected in the first launch wave, each one will outperform the Ampere 3000 series somehow. NVIDIA's RTX 4000 GPUs will provide impressive performance, but next-gen graphics cards may have to contend with alternatives like AMD's rDNA3 and Intel's Arc Alchemist. The GeForce RTX 4090 is Nvidia's flagship model in the new series. With a base frequency of 2.23 GHz and a boost clock of 2.52 GHz, the card will feature 16384 Shader processor cores. These cards will be fitted with a grand 24GB GDDR6X graphics memory that communicates over a 384-bit wide memory bus.
The graphics card draws somewhere in the range of 450W in power consumption. Secondly, the company will release two distinct GeForce RTX 4080 versions. GeForce RTX 4080 12GB with GDDR6X RAM and a Lovelace GPU with 7680 CUDA cores will be the "entry-level model." It has 2.31GHz clock speeds and a turbo frequency of 2.61GHz. The RTX 4080 12GB has a 192-bit memory interface and 285W maximum power use. Nvidia also announces a 16GB model of the RTX 4080. This will get more memory and a more powerful GPU with 9728 CUDA cores. This card's clock speed is 2.21 GHz, with a boost clock of 2.51 GHz. This card will also have a 256-bit memory bus and a tbp of 320W. Both RTX 4080 graphics cards will be available in November. Nvidia will release Founders Editions of the RTX 4090 and RTX 4080 16GB graphics cards. Only customized variants of board partners of the RTX 4080 12GB will be sold.
In today's review, we will examine NVIDIA's reference model, the GeForce RTX 4090 Founders Edition. Tomorrow, the 12th of October 2022, the AIB cards will get their turn. The card appears nearly identical to the GeForce RTX 3090, but there will be notable differences, such as a different power connector and performance; oh man ... that performance.
Oh did I mention already that it's big?
