Nvidia announces RTX 4080 and RTX 4090 GPUs

    Beyond fast.

    Nvidia announced the RTX 4080 and RTX 4090 desktop GPUs featuring the new Ada Lovelace architecture and improved DLSS 3 technology. RTX 40 series feature next-gen tensor cores, RT cores, new dual AV1 encoders, opacity micro-maps, and displaced micro-meshes.

    The RTX 4080 is twice as fast as the RTX 3080 Ti according to Nvidia, and the GPU will launch in two configurations. RTX 4080 is available in a 16 GB variant for $1,199 and a 12 GB variant for $899 starting this November. Nvidia’s new flagship, the RTX 4090, launches on October 12 for $1,599. Nvidia claims the RTX 4090 is twice as powerful as the RTX 3090 Ti.

    Official specifications for the new RTX 40 series GPUs are available below:

    GeForce RTX 4090

    • 16,384 CUDA Cores
    • 1,321 Tensor-TFLOPs
    • 191 RT-TFLOPs
    • 83 Shader-TFLOPs of power
    • 24GB of GDDR6X memory
    • $1,599

    GeForce RTX 4080 (16GB)

    • 9,728 CUDA Cores
    • 780 Tensor-TFLOPs
    • 113 RT-TFLOPs
    • 49 Shader-TFLOPs of power
    • GDDR6X memory
    • $1,199

    GeForce RTX 4080 (12GB)

    • 7,680 CUDA Cores
    • 639 Tensor-TFLOPs
    • 92 RT-TFLOPs
    • 40 Shader-TFLOPs
    • GDDR6X memory
    • $899

    A Founders Edition will be available for RTX 4080 and 4090 with an upgraded Dual Axial Flow Through design, which was introduced with RTX 30 series FE cards. The new graphics cards leverage the new GPU power standard of next-gen ATX 3.0 power supplies, PCIe Gen-5 16-pin Connector. The new connector allows users to route just one cable to the GPU and improve aesthetics of the PC build. An adapter will be included for support for last-gen power supplies, which route up to four 8-pin power connectors to the new RTX 40 series GPUs.

    ATX 3.0 power supplies launch this October from ASUS, Cooler Master, ThermalTake, and more. Additionally, customers may purchase new RTX 4080 and 4090 GPUs from board partners such as MSI, GIGABYTE, ZOTAC, and more. Various prebuilt systems featuring RTX 40 series GPUs will be available as well.

    For those interested in trying out the new RTX capabilities of RTX 40 series, the Portal with RTX DLC and Nvidia RTX Racer are available for free this November. Furthermore, games such as Cyberpunk 2077 and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II receive major RTX and DLSS 3 updates. The new Nvidia RTX Remix Modding Platform will allow creators to make RTX mods for thousands of games available now.
