Last Tuesday (20), NVIDIA Finally announced a new line of video cards, RTX 40 Ada Lovelace. The big moment, of course, was the flagship of the generation, the RTX 4090, which won a small teaser in addition to the company’s own performance promotional videos. Digital Foundry To give you an idea of what we can expect.
Digital Foundry is a specialized YouTube channel formed by a few techies who do technical analysis on hardware and games. Thus, the small snippets shown by the presenters are very reliable to give you an idea of the power of RTX 4090 and DLSS 3.0, which is also announced by the brand.
Up to 400% performance jump
One of the most important is Cyberpunk 2077, which works at maximum quality, 4K resolution and Ray Tracing. The game was tested with an Intel Core i9-12900K processor, and it managed to reach 60 frames without resizing.
When using DLSS 2.0, the game had a 250% improvement over the previous scenario. The technology has absurd gains when used at high resolutions, so it was to be expected that a card of this scale would look so good in the test. A big surprise came with DLSS 3.0, which noted A The difference is about 400%.
In relation to the RTX 3090 Ti, currently the most powerful card in the world – until its successor is launched in the next few weeks – the 4090 continues to lead, unlocking more than 240% performance in the title. CD Project Red.
on jumping Spiderman, a game that just came to PCs, DLSS 3.0 with RTX 4090 averages about 210 frames with RT turned on; And the same setup, but without DLSS, tries to reach 100 frames per second. However, the gameplay shown is NVIDIA’s own promotional content and not third-party content.
Already in the Digital Foundry video we can see that the new version Deep learning super pattern Now fixes flicker and outline issues on objects. Older versions of the technology, like AMD FSR, struggled to overcome these flaws.
Also released by NVIDIA, Overwatch 2 God show and created more than 360 frames in Quad HD resolution with 4090. The number is impressive, especially with peaks that easily reach 450 and 500 fps without the help of DLSS.
On the green side, the new flagship comes with 24GB of GDDR6X VRAM memory, clocked at 21GB/s and a 384-bit interface. The model still has over 16k CUDA cores, 128 thread multiprocessors, 96MB of L2 cache and a total of 384 ROPs. Frequencies are between 2.0 and 3.0 GHz, and consumption is more than 450 W with a 16-pin connection.
DLSS 3.0 will reach more than 30 games in October, but it will be an RTX 40xx exclusive feature. This is because the resource requires specific and updated structures present in the body of these GPUs, the so-called Optical flow accelerators.
The RTX 4090, on the other hand, hits international retail on October 12. In Brazil, the GPU will launch later this year with a suggested price of R$14,999.
