The RTX 4-series from NVIDIA, which includes the $1,599 flagship RTX 4090 and the slightly more inexpensive 4080, is the company’s newest line of graphics cards.

Nvidia claims the new GPU powered by Ada Lovelace Architecture and DLSS 3; Third-Gen RTX up to 4x Faster Than NVIDIA Ampere Architecture GPUs.

Jensen Huang, NVIDIA’s founder and CEO, said “The age of RTX ray tracing and neural rendering is in full steam, and our new Ada Lovelace architecture takes it to the next level,”

NVIDIA is promoting its new “Ada Lovelace” architecture in addition to boosting the amount of cores, processors, shaders, and the necessary boost in speed observed in today’s games.

The 4-series is a major improvement over the 3-series, which dominated the crypto mining sector and a few other computation-intensive applications and was consequently frequently purchased in large quantities by bots and other dubious enterprises.

The GeForce RTX 4090 and 4080 GPUs will be available as custom boards, including stock-clocked and factory-overclocked models, from top add-in card providers such as ASUS, Colorful, Gainward, Galaxy, GIGABYTE, Inno3D, MSI, Palit, PNY and Zotac. The RTX 4090 and RTX 4080 (16GB) are also produced directly by NVIDIA in limited Founders Editions for fans wanting the NVIDIA in-house design.
