After the initial announcement made by Jensen Huang at GTC 2022, yesterday we got the low-down on Nvidia's new RTX 40 series via a series of press briefings. After getting a close look at the GPU specs, Ada architecture and much more, I sat down with Leo for a wide-ranging discussion on all things Nvidia RTX 40 series…
01:30 ‘Prices from' is alarming / briefings
03:05 RTX 4090 – thoughts
05:12 Naming front
06:31 CUDA Cores – memory details
09:40 RTX 4080 16 GB
12:12 Market prices even higher, again?
14:00 Has EVGA has poisoned the mood against Nvidia?
16:06 RTX 4080 12GB version!? (4070?)
17:43 Founders cards
19:20 3000 Series stocks in abundance
20:45 Q4 market – and what to buy?
23:53 RTX 4000 has a PCIe Gen 4 interface and not Gen 5
24:40 Nvidia has been a lot more deliberate
26:00 NV Joke about Tie or Tee Eye shows some self-awareness
28:33 NV Link/SLI has been killed
29:05 Mobile graphics in laptops
31:00 Performance claims / DLSS 3 / IQ
35:20 Has Jensen been distracted by ARM?
38:28 Wrap up
Nvidia has announced Ada Lovelace
450W RTX 4090 which looks mighty, and expensive
320W RTX 4080 16GB looks impressive, but expensive
285W RTX 4080 12GB looks like a spare part that is intended to show that gen-on-gen prices are reasonable. Surely it should be RTX 4070.
‘Prices from' is alarming
UK prices are £1,679, £1269 and £949 respectively
Will Founders cards be cheaper than partner GPUs or at the premium end?
Don't forget to factor in a suitable power supply with spiffy new PCIe Gen 5 connector
RTX 4000 has a PCIe Gen 4 interface and not Gen 5
DLSS 3 sounds significant
NV Link/SLI has been killed
Their joke about Tie or Tee Eye shows some self-awareness
RTX 3080, 3080 and 3060 will continue to be sold alongside RTX 4000 as they run down stocks
EVGA has poisoned the mood against Nvidia
Has Jensen been distracted by ARM?
How badly have gamers been screwed by the crypto boom, bust and Ethereum Merge
RTX 4000 will be available on 12th October
AMD will announce RDNA 3 graphics on 3rd November.
