NVIDIA just officially announced RTX 4080 in GTC Sept 2022 Keynote. CEO Jensen Huang unveiled the new GPU in the global event along with RTX 4090. This offering will be 2-4x times faster than the RTX 3080 Ti, and will come in two variants - 16GB G6X and 12GB G6X.
NVIDIA had been teasing this event for a while now. Apart from their latest line of GPUs, they announced various other new technologies they have been working so far. Among them includes DLSS 3 which is promising upto 4 times the performance gains over DLSS 2. Moreover, NVIDIA teased Portal Remastered coming as a free DLC with updated RTX and DLSS options.
Everything about the NVIDIA RTX 4080
The RTX 4080 is the next generation of GPU from NVIDIA. Expected to be 2-4x faster than the current offerings, it will be based on NVIDIA's new Ada Lovelace architecture, named after English Mathematician Ada Lovelace.
It is based on TSMC 4N Process and Micron G6X Memory. The 3rd Gen RT cores on these cards will allow up to two times the ray tracing performance of last gen GPUs. Shaders implemented in this new line are up to two times more power-efficient than the RTX 30 series cards. Apart from this, the 4th Gen Tensor Cores allows for deep-learning capabitilies like never seen before.
The latest GPUs from NVIDIA will be changing gaming as we know it. Moreover, they announced their Omniverse and showcased the implementation of new RTX and DLSS technologies in Microsoft's Flight Simulator, where the performance gain was almost doubled.
How much will the RTX 4080 cost and when will it release?
It will be available for purchase in two variants - 16GB G6X and 12GB G6X. The latter model of the GPU will start at $899, with the former at $1,199.
