The new GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card will be released in October 2022 with an MSRP of $1,599. However, what many of us want to know is the gain in gaming performance, an important factor in deciding whether or not it’s worth the investment. Therefore, Nvidia released some information on the matter in a press presentation. As a result, we can say that it is impressive.
It’s true that only a few slides were shown with the performance data, but if everything goes as the company claims, then it’s safe to say that the next high-end GeForce promises a lot.
Testing took place in 4K with DLSS Super Resolution turned on in performance mode. They used an Intel i9 12900K CPU with 32GB of memory and Windows 11. The company wanted to showcase the power of the graphics card, so it ensured that only titles supporting DLSS 3 were used.
To illustrate, Nvidia has separated everything into two categories: “Today’s Games” and “Tomorrow’s Games”. The ray tracing is the great highlight, because with its use, certain games reach almost four times more frames per second.
The graphics features really make the GeForce RTX 4090 look like a monster when it comes to ray tracing. Cyberpunk 2077, for example, goes to 90 FPS maximum performance, against its native 60 frames. already the classic Portal can reach 117 FPS with ray tracing at maximum level.
However, it is worth remembering that to achieve these impressive numbers, the game needs to have full DLSS 3 support.
Benchmarks were not displayed on the RTX 4080
Coming off the top of the line, we can’t forget about the two other options that Nvidia will put in stores in October. The RTX 4080 will arrive with 12GB and 16GB versions of memory. Their numbers of Cuda cores are different, as are their base frequency and standard consumption.
During the presentation, the company decided not to show any tests with these video cards. The reason for this is that the specifications are less explosive on both models compared to the RTX 4090. In other words, the company preferred to highlight its flagship.
However, it will be necessary to check the benchmarks after the launch of the products to really point out the highlights of each item.
The characteristics of each of the three new graphics cards reflect not only different prices, but how much the user is looking for performance. If you want to know more about the details, check out what the technoblog separated on the subject.
The RTX 4090 is really exciting, but let’s wait until the likely hands-on that will take place at launch.
