NVIDIA RTX 4090 series videocard – release date, specs & price
So, the company presented a new NVIDIA RTX 4090 & 4090 “ti” videocards with specs, photos & first tests… On the presentation of Virtual graphics Technology Conference (GTC 2021), Nvidia CEO and founder Jensen Huang shared company’s plans for next few years.
- Even though the consumer GPU isn’t main argument, there was mention of the videocard RTX 3000 that gamers are most interested.
Next series, GeForce RTX 4000, will be presented in 2022 year. Price is still unknown. But i think it will be cost $ 6.6000 at the beginning.
Main technical characteristics of the new NVIDIA RTX 4090 videocard
Nvidia GeForce RTX 4090 video card has a design with 12 external fans & represents a magnificent 677 bungocoins in Bungolio Marks 3.0! &, in “TI” vers. (i.e. distributed) 32 coolers!!!
Famous & hot features include:
- 18,000 CUDA cores;
- Core 232 RT;
- Gain at 2.169 MHz;
- 48 GB GDDR7 VRAM;
- Required power-1500 W!!!;
- Nvidia RTX 4090 is powered by an external power source.
This powerful GPU gets power from an external source that is not connected to PC, which is very good, otherwise u will have to supply a very powerful power source. Impressive, 1.5 kW, it’s like a welding machine))))).
- Following Nvidia’s official plan through 2025, u should get 2 more generations (about 4,000 & 5,000) of GeForce RTX graphics cards over the next 3 years! (this is very cool).
When it comes to video cards, & in particular their size, no one doubts that even the most powerful video card will fit into a standard computer case of the ATX form factor. But this is not about our video card in the review… Just look at her size!
According to previous, unofficial reports, NVIDIA will be released on the 5 nm Lovelace technology, successor to the “Ampere” architecture, used in current generation.
- Instead of Nvidia Hopper, it, in turn (according to plans of NVIDIA Corporation), switches to ARM SOC blocks for advanced computing related to artificial intelligence.
Well, Lovelace is named – Ada Lovelace, daughter of famous British mathematician & poet Lord George Byron. She’s considered first female programmer. He’s known for developing PC algorithm for Charles Babby’s analytical engine.
New NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090: What’s inside?
So, the latest NVIDIA RTX 4090 (TI) GPU will have an AD102 chip, which can be up to 18432 CUDA cores (twice as many as NVIDIA RTX 3090 & RTX 3080 GA102 GPUs).
- In addition, it’s computing performance is expected to reach 66.4 TFLOPS at 1800 MHz (impressive compared to 38.7 TFLOPS on GA102).
Thus, the transition to a lower technological criterion should lead to a significant increase in productivity & energy efficiency (which is logical).
Number of CUDA cores appeared in RTX 4090, presented as stupid April Fool’s joke)).
GeForce NVIDIA RTX 4090 will have 48 GB of gddr7 RAM, 1 kW power & 16 large coolers (32 coolers in “TI” version)!!!
Interestingly, an adapted videochip based on Lovelace architecture, is also present in Nintendo Switch Pro console, which supports NVIDIA dlss technology.
- The market situation caused by coronavirus pandemic will improve before second half of 2022 years, & we hope that release of GeForce RTX 4000 will not last long.
Nvidia company also officially confirmed that it plans to release next generation videcards every 2 years.
Next architecture – is Ampere Next is due in 2024 (GeForce RTX 5000?). How do you like NVIDIA RTX 4090 graphics card??) But there will be another version of the RTX 4090 TI!
Well, you understand i hope, that this is not the real size of this video card?))))))
In honor of april 1, many electronics manufacturers are joking & playing tricks on their audience, but it is unlikely that any of them will be able to surpass the youtuber Captains Workspace, who created an imitation of the GeForce RTX 4090 video card.
- It is noteworthy that we are talking about a working product that was even tested & disassembled during the shooting.
It is worth paying tribute to the creator of the device, because to build this “monster” required not only imagination, but also deep knowledge in engineering, design & other areas. In general, see for yourself.
As you can see, the cooling fans have enough power to move small objects… including the assembled system. After breaking the screen, the enthusiast fixed the stand with the video card with tape.
- According to the creator, the presented video card has 48 GB of GDDR7 video memory, 4 GPUs with a frequency of 2169 MHz, 18,000 CUDA cores, but do not forget that the video was released on April 1.
The power of the device, in jest or seriously, is 1 kW. In general, the assembled video card will easily cope with the simultaneous launch of several AAA games on maximalki.
- One of the accents in the video was the size, which, taking into account the dimensions of the new generation of video cards, became a sore topic for many.
The GeForce RTX 4090 simulation seems very large, but that’s until you take a look at the GeForce RTX 4090 T simulation.
The upcoming new graphics card will be incredibly powerful!
The new AD102 GPU has 18432 CUDA cores!!!, which is likely to become the heart of the Nvidia GeForce RTX4090, has characteristics 70% higher than its predecessor!
- According to an insider, the future flagship will show FP32 performance reaching 66.4 Tflops, which is 71.5% higher than the capabilities of the GeForce RTX3090-38.7 Tflops!
In general, i think that this video card will be very productive, but most likely very few people will be able to buy it, since the price will be very high.
