NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4000, everything we know so far

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4000

Ada Lovelace: this would be the code name of the new graphics cards from NVIDIA, which (hopefully, given the current situation) we will be able to see within this year, exactly 365 days after the release of the current top of the range 3000 series. “Lovelace” refers to the name of the architecture on which these new graphics cards will be based, which will therefore take the place of today's Ampere. There is talk of performance 2.5 times higher than those achievable with current hardware, which could obviously make the eyes of enthusiasts shine, but there is the risk of being faced with exorbitant numbers in terms of prices. and consumption of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4000. Which would not be too much news given the current situation, but it is always advisable to proceed with caution, in any case.

The reference currently is the RTX 3090, characterized by a TDP of 350 W and based on an 8 nm production process managed by Samsung: the new series will instead see a chip built with a 4 nm production process, this time entrusted to TSMC, which would lead to significantly higher performance, but with a consumption energy which, on the top-of-the-range model RTX 4090, should be 30% higher (even if some leaks even speak of doubled energy consumption, so it is assumed to see a TDP between 450 W and 500 W, but there is a risk of reaching even the 550 W - 600 W range). Performance and consumption of the future NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4000 would therefore go hand in hand, a factor that could put a strong brake on the purchasing campaign, at least by the most thrifty gamers. However, this would be confirmed by a first look at the PCB, which we have explored in detail in this article.

Going to analyze in detail the information we have so far, (almost) all the pieces seem to fit together: RTX 3090, which was originally announced as "the first video card capable of supporting 8K ”, it is very difficult to manage such a high resolution, thus having to rely on the support offered by DLSS. Now, we certainly don't want to say that this is unacceptable, but it is obvious that NVIDIA's statements have definitely raised expectations in the community, which therefore hopes to be able to see a graphics card in the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4000 generation (probably the RTX 4090 itself). , which should be the most "pumped" version of all) capable of truly offering the experience of 8K resolution, without having to resort to algorithms such as DLSS. This would also be possible thanks to the fact that the company would finally have decided to increase the VRAM of all the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4000, or almost: if the RTX 4090 were to have 24GB of GDDR6X memory exactly like the RTX 3090, all the other GPUs of the new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4000 range could be equipped with 16GB of video memory. However, it seems to have been confirmed that the configurations will be the same as the current generation, or 24 GB, 16 GB, 12 GB, and 8 GB, but what we should focus more on is the fact that the most performing models could even equip some GDDR7 type memories.

One of the latest good news however concerns the fact that, according to tipster Kopite7Kimi, NVIDIA has already entered the launch phase of the new graphics cards: if this can make enthusiasts who do not see rejoice the time to have confirmation of what will be the official technical specifications, the same may not apply to the company, which is currently finding itself facing one of the main problems that had been talked about from the beginning, namely consumption too high of the GPUs.

As already repeated in several points, all the information we have so far derives from rumors and leaks that have appeared on the net, without official confirmation by NVIDIA on any of the points covered. This means that some of the information reported here may turn out to be incorrect, but as has happened in the past, it is likely that much of it will turn out to be correct. In any case, until there is an official announcement from Nvidia, we cannot be entirely sure what future NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4000 will bring.
