Intel’s high-end Arc graphics cards, the A7 series, have been spotted in a few leaked benchmarks with interesting results – which we admit we need to sprinkle liberally with the usual caveats.
So treat this as a rumor but VideoCardz (opens in new tab) reports that Geekbench results appeared for the Intel Arc A770 and A750 GPUs (the Limited Edition versions, i.e. those made by Intel themselves, very similar to Nvidia and its Founders Edition cards).
Both graphics cards were tested with Vulkan and OpenCL on a PC with an Intel Core i9-12900KS processor (the fastest Alder Lake chip). In the Vulkan test, the A770 managed to rack up 73,536 points, with the A750 hitting 66,609 not far behind.
With OpenCL, the A770 achieved 99,482 compared to 88,828 for the A750, so again it was a similar story (albeit with the lower-spec A7 graphics card lagging a bit further back).
Analysis: Putting things in perspective
This is an interesting leak because these are the first external results for A7 GPUs outside of the perks we’ve heard from Intel. If you remember, Team Blue promised that the Arc A770 is a rival to Nvidia’s RTX 3060 Ti, and the A750 aims to take on the RTX 3060, based on Intel’s own performance comparisons. Which, of course, as with any internal benchmarking, needs to be taken with some spice, as the most favorable metrics are always chosen for obvious marketing reasons (everyone does this, of course).
Now, in these benchmarks, we see that the A770 is almost on par with the RTX 3060, not the 3060 Ti – and the A750 is slightly behind the RTX 3060 (by about 10% of that).
But before we get carried away with the notion that these Intel GPUs might be a slightly weaker sauce than the company promised, we have to remember that this is just a benchmark, and only the more vague hint at how these A7 graphics cards might fare in terms of real-world gaming performance (only the Vulkan score is also relevant in this regard, mind you).
Of course, Geekbench scores aren’t the best way to judge games either, even in the world of synthetic benchmarks, and an example of the results shared here is the shaky AMD RX 6700 XT scores (which is certainly much faster for gaming than the RTX 3060, but not in these results).
In any case, what we can glean here is limited, and we need to wait for full testing and analysis of the Arc A770 and A750 to know how they will actually shape up. The good news is that what we already know is that Intel is targeting prices very aggressively, something we’ve been expecting from the start with Arc GPUs, and that should shake up the market for more affordable graphics cards.
Nvidia’s RTX 4060 isn’t coming anytime soon, so Team Green will have buyers relying on the RTX 3060 and 3060 Ti for now, so we expect them to need to be priced more competitively as Intel enters the market.
Assuming – and given how Arc’s launch has gone so far, we probably shouldn’t assume too much – that the launch takes place on time and smoothly with a good amount of stock Intel’s A7 GPUs. Fortunately, Limited Edition is just a name chosen by Intel – as mentioned, like Founders Edition – and not an actual indication that volume will be limited, meaning we won’t see as many GPUs on shelves.
If you’re looking for reasons to buy the Google Pixel 7 or Google Pixel 7 Pro when they launch next week, consider this: You can get a free Google Pixel Watch or some Google Pixel Buds Pro headphones with your pre-order. .
This is according to the informant Roland Quandt (opens in new tab), which is generally trusted with the information it provides. The Pixel Watch will apparently be included in Pixel 7 Pro pre-orders, with Pixel Buds Pro on offer for Pixel 7 buyers. There’s a catch though – Quandt indicates these deals will only be available in the UK.
Whether they end up showing up as deals in other international markets, or whether Google puts together different pre-order packages, remains to be seen. The new phones would certainly be a more tempting proposition with a freebie.
Pixel 7 Pro pre-order gifts in select countries include the Pixel Watch. Pixel 7 pre-order gifts in select countries include Pixel Buds Pro. (read: UK)October 1, 2022
What we do know is that the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro will be revealed on Thursday, October 6th. As for the actual shipping and sale dates, Tuesday, October 18th has been mentioned as a possibility by those who know.
The Pixel Watch is set to debut on 6 October alongside the Pixel 7 phones. Considering the wearable is set to retail for around $350 in the US and around £340 in the UK, that’s quite a freebie.
As for the Pixel Buds Pro, they’re now available to buy for $199/£179 – not as expensive as the Pixel Watch is likely to be, but again they’re being paired with the cheaper Pixel 7. be revealed next week.
Analysis: Google sweetens the deal
Google has a way of putting out some pretty decent pre-order deals: you’ll recall that Google Pixel 6 pre-orders in the UK came with a free pair of Bose 700 wireless headphones, worth £300. (half of the phone itself).
Clearly, the pre-order freebies sweeten the deal for potential buyers, and will likely make a lot more people consider buying a Pixel 7 smartphone – especially when it comes to the Pixel 7 Pro, if indeed a Pixel Watch comes with it. .
There will be a financial success for Google, of course, but it might not be a bad idea to get as many people as possible to use your new smartwatch. More users means more developer interest, which means more investment in Wear OS.
As always, pricing will be crucial – if the phones themselves are too expensive, pre-order deals may not even matter. Of course, we’ll bring you all the news and announcements live on October 6th as they happen.
We expect the Google Pixel Watch to make its full debut on Thursday, October 6th – alongside the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro – but in the meantime, a major leak has revealed a lot more about the upcoming smartwatch.
experienced informant @OnLeaks (opens in new tab) posted the release, which showcases some of the color choices and band styles we can expect in the coming week. We also get some shots of the watch face and a photo of it being synced to a smartphone.
Watch faces are also included in the leak, covering a range of different approaches to displaying the time – in both analogue and digital formats. Another image shows the watch being used to take an ECG reading to assess heart rate.
I just got my hands on a bunch of #Google #PixelWatch promotional material showing off all the color options and Watch Bands for the first time. Some details revealed too… @Slashleaks 👉🏻 pic.twitter.com/N0uiKaKXo0October 1, 2022
If the leak is accurate, we have four strips of silicone on the way: black, grey, white and what appears to be a very pale green. Leather straps appear to cover black, orange, green and white, while there is also a fabric option in red, black and green.
We already know that the Pixel Watch will work in conjunction with the Fitbit app to record all your vital stats, and in the leaked images is an image of the Pixel Watch alongside the Fitbit app running on an Android phone.
There’s plenty of material to browse here if you can’t wait until the big day – and of course we’ll bring you all the news and announcements as the Google event unfolds. Starts at 7am PT / 10am ET / 3pm BST / 12pm AEDT (October 7).
Analysis: Big Moment for Google
It’s been quite a while since Google launched into a new hardware category, and you could argue that there are more rides on the Pixel Watch than on the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro – as Google has been making phones for years at this point.
While Wear OS has been around for a considerable amount of time, Google has been leaving it to manufacturers and third-party partners to manufacture the actual hardware. Samsung recently made the switch back to Wear OS for the Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Watch 5 Pro, for example.
Deciding to go ahead with your own smartwatch is therefore a big step, and it’s clear that Google is envious of the Apple Watch’s success. It’s the obvious choice for a wearable for anyone who owns an iPhone, and Google expects Pixel phones and Pixel watches to have a similar kind of relationship.
What’s intriguing is how the Fitbit fits together – the company is now run by Google, but so far we haven’t seen many signs of the Fitbit and Pixel lines merging, even if the Pixel Watch does come with support for the Fitbit app.
Spotify has started supporting audiobooks for users in the US.
An all-new section of the Spotify app will grant subscribers (Premium or otherwise) access to a catalog of over 300,000 audiobook titles, with each book available for purchase or viewing via web pages outside of the app itself.
Purchased audiobooks will appear alongside music and podcasts in users’ libraries, Home recommendations, and Search, while titles not yet purchased will appear with a lock icon over their respective play buttons. Audiobooks will be available in the Spotify app on mobile and desktop devices.
Listeners can download purchased content for offline listening, and Spotify’s auto-tag feature will save their spot so they can easily pick up where they left off. Speed control is also included, giving users a variety of options to speed up or slow down an audiobook.
“We’re excited to release audiobooks with an all-new user interface geared specifically towards [towards] listening to audiobooks and fits perfectly with the music and podcasts you already listen to and love,” said Nir Zicherman, Spotify executive, in a statement. interview (opens in new tab) accompanies the ad.
“This is just the beginning of Spotify’s audiobook journey. We are working to create a seamless audiobook experience and will continue to build and innovate on that in the future,” added Zicherman.
As mentioned, audiobook support is limited to Spotify users in the US for now, but Zicherman alluded to the company’s plans to roll out the feature in additional markets during his aforementioned For the Record interview.
Spotify’s move into the audiobook space isn’t a surprise. The music streaming service has been experimenting with the medium for several years now, and its long-term intentions were revealed following its acquisition of audiobook platform Findaway in November 2021.
Spotify executives expect the large-scale expansion of the audiobook platform to undermine the popularity of rival services such as Audible, Blinkist and Scribd, as well as give Spotify an edge over arch-rivals Apple Music.
In the US at least, Spotify now exists as a one-stop shop for music, podcasts and audiobooks – a combination we haven’t seen before in the streaming industry.
AMD’s RDNA 3 graphics cards will launch on November 3rd, we just heard on Twitter.
Scott Herkelman of Team Red, who is senior vice president and general manager of graphics at AMD, tweeted to let us know the date and that more details on these next-gen RX 7000 GPUs will be released soon.
Join us on November 3rd as we release RDNA 3 to the world! More details coming soon! #RDNA3 #AMD pic.twitter.com/oftq1FjrgtSeptember 20, 2022
The 3rd of the month obviously coincides with RDNA 3, but what’s most revealing about the timing here is that today is the big day for Nvidia’s next-gen reveal.
As you’ve probably heard, Nvidia’s GeForce event at the GTC is all but confirmed to be an RTX 4000 – with super-heavy tips that have been dropped – and it’s widely expected that we’ll see a new RTX 4090 GPU, and possibly beyond.
Clearly, with the timing of this AMD tweet being two hours before CEO Jensen Huang’s GTC keynote, Team Red wants to crash the party and remind gamers that the RTX 4000 won’t be the only option for buyers later this year.
Analysis: A rather sneaky thunder stealing move
While it’s not uncommon to see this sort of attempt to shift the focus and spotlight – or at least some of it – in the tech industry, we have to say that this seems pretty unsportsmanlike from AMD to reduce its interference so close to Nvidia’s Lovelace launch. So it looks like the gloves are coming off well and truly in the high-end GPU showdown….
And interestingly, this announcement of an RDNA 3 reveal comes on the heels of a new rumor that the RX 7000 lineup will see AMD reach incredible boost speeds of nearly 4GHz. Now, take this with a wheelbarrow full of spice, but it’s certainly aiming for some seriously fast GPUs – and again, just on the cusp of Nvidia’s launch.
Keep in mind that the rumor has Nvidia’s RTX 4090 on sale next month, and we’ll soon find out the truth of that. With the release of AMD’s RDNA 3 taking place on November 3rd, the question is – how long will it be before high-end graphics cards hit shelves? At the moment, it looks like Nvidia will have a sales lead of around a month, at least for the main GPU – but which other cards will be revealed is still uncertain. Speculation points to the RTX 4090 plus a pair of 4080 models (with 12GB and 16GB of VRAM and a few other potentially important differences).
AMD is also believed to be getting started with its high-end offerings, presumably on sale in late November, but it may not be until next year before we see more affordable next-gen models – and indeed, that could be the Nvidia’s case, too. Rumor has it that the RTX 4060 will be released next year, and possibly the 4070 as well.
URGENT: We now have official confirmation that the RTX 4090 will be released on October 12th! It starts at $1,599, includes 24GB of GDDR6X memory, and offers two to four times faster performance than the RTX 3090 Ti. We also saw details about the RTX 4080.
We are live watching the Nvidia GeForce Beyond GTC 2022 stream and will update this article with all the news about the RTX 4090 as we go along. Nvidia just showed off its incredibly detailed RacerX physics and rendering simulation, which is apparently running on a single next-gen Nvidia ‘Ada Lovelace’ GPU – presumably the mighty RTX 4090.
The new boards will have 76 billion transistors and will feature a new technology called Shader Execution Reordering (SER), which promises to increase ray-tracing performance by up to x3. They will also introduce a new type of Tensor Core with increased tensor processing. These GPUs promise at least a 25% increase in gaming performance thanks to SER.
RTX 4090: Other new details
Nvidia Real-Time Denoisers are a new technique that allows for less radii needed for ray-traced lighting and shadows, which improves performance and stability. DLSS will naturally return for the new generation, allowing for better frame rates at higher resolutions via AI processing – theoretically up to 16K.
Ada will feature DLSS 3, which can output entire frames at once, rather than a pixel-by-pixel preview. This allows up to a 4x increase in gaming performance compared to brute force rendering without DLSS – and this technology will be present in the RTX 4090. It also allows the RTX GPU to render games faster than the CPU is capable of keeping up with the CPU – limited games, but inserting predicted frames without the need for CPU input.
There’s also a new technology called RTX Remix, which uses AI to enhance assets in old games – Morrowind was given as an example – via an ‘RTX Mod Pack’. It is currently unclear whether this will be available for use on previous-generation RTX GPUs.
Cut to the chase
What is it? Nvidia’s next flagship graphics card
When it will be available? October 12th
What will it cost? $1,599 for the base model
Nvidia RTX 4090 release date
Founder’s Edition will be released everywhere on October 12
Third-party models likely to be released on the same day
We finally have a confirmed release date for the RTX 4090: October 12, 2022. That puts it a little behind Nvidia’s usual two-year release schedule, but we can probably attribute the delay to the pandemic.
The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 was first released on September 17, 2020, followed by the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 on September 24. Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 was released on October 28, 2020.
We are still awaiting details on potential RTX 4070 and 4060 GPUs, but the RTX 4080 will be released shortly after the 4090.
Nvidia RTX 4090 price
Pricing will start at $1,599
Third-party factory overclocked cards will likely cost more
Previous leaks hinted at ‘premium’ models – no news on that yet
Despite a Vietnamese retailer offering advance pre-orders for the graphics card that suggested a retail price of over $2,000, the RTX 4090 will start at a surprisingly reasonable $1,599.
That put it at just a hundred dollars more than the RTX 3090’s MSRP ($1,499), and the card will likely be available at retail price – as we’re now past that horrible period of crypto mining and GPU scalping. However, short-term shortages are still quite likely as cards are likely to run out very quickly.
Cryptocurrency prices have dropped in recent months, reducing demand for high-end graphics cards from cryptocurrency miners, so upward pressure on prices is not that powerful. And while chip shortages are still a big issue, it occurred just before the Ampere and AMD RDNA 2 releases, so these graphics card lines weren’t prepared for the 2020 and 2021 chip crisis.
It’s 2022, however, and now the chip shortage is a little embedded. Nvidia knows what the chip situation is and has had time to prepare for it in a way it couldn’t before with the RTX 3090.
As for the cowardly freeloaders… well, there’s not much anyone can do about the human impulse to screw strangers for a profit, but there will likely be a lot more stock available this time around to make it much less profitable to try and buy tens of thousands of dollars worth of boards. printers with the hope of reselling them at a premium of 50% (or more).
Nvidia RTX 4090 Specifications
More than 18,000 CUDA cores at most; 16,384 expected for the RTX 4090
While Nvidia’s ‘GeForce Beyond’ livestream event gave us some details about the RTX 4090, we’re still waiting for the full spec sheet.
What we do know is that the RTX 4090 will feature powerful 24GB GDDR6X video memory, powered by a GPU chip with 76 billion transistors. The new Ada Lovelace microarchitecture will feature a new streaming multiprocessor with 90 shader TFLOPs and twice the energy efficiency of the previous model. Lovelace will also feature new 3rd generation ray tracing cores and up to 1,400 4th generation Tensor TFLOPs.
Given that we don’t have anything official about the RTX 4090, any details about its specs beyond this point are more speculation than fact.
Leaker HXL reported that the RTX 4090’s Time Spy Extreme benchmark score is 20,192, higher than the Time Spy’s score of 19,000. This is backed up by leaker Kopite7kimi, who claimed that the 4090 will be at least twice as fast as the RTX 3090.
With a projected TGP (Total Graphics Power) of 450W, this component alone might be the most demanding consumer PC component ever. That’s enough power to run some of the best gaming PCs, and we’re not just talking budget systems, either.
This is just basic power; the RTX 4090 is expected to draw up to 660W while reaching its factory clocks. This power consumption almost guarantees that most PC manufacturers will need to upgrade their PSUs to have enough power for this beastly GPU.
OnePlus likes to use a slow schedule of teases to reveal information about its new devices, but this has apparently backfired in the case of the upcoming Nord Watch.
in your Indian region website (opens in new tab), the company created a page for this early budget smartwatch. This page includes some teases for the watch, as well as a timeline of when we can expect futures, with September 24th indexed to display refresh rate information and September 26th promising fitness information.
However, another aspect of the site delivered the game early. That’s because the page hosts a quiz, allowing you to guess the device’s specs to win the watch… and one question in particular makes the answers completely clear.
The fifth and final question of the quiz asks “What are the key features of the OnePlus Nord Watch?”, with each of the four possible answers listing certain spec combinations for the watch. Hopefully, when the device launches, we’ll find out which one is correct.
Wrong. You don’t have to be Sherlock to deduce what is correct. That’s because OnePlus has already confirmed that the device will have a 45mm AMOLED screen, and only one of the multiple-choice answers has that as an option.
So now, looking at this answer, we can find out more information about the OnePlus Nord Watch. It will have a 60Hz refresh rate, 105 fitness modes, ‘Women Health Feature’ (an oddly clinical way of referring to cycling tracking) and a 10-day battery life.
Analysis: A strange self-leakage
This information was supposed to come out over the course of a week of teasing, but this multiple choice question spilled the beans.
This steals the thunder of OnePlus’ marketing push, but we’re fine with it – the company’s habit of doing this can be exhausting for fans who just want to discover an upcoming product.
There are still things we need to learn about the device. What are these 105 fitness modes? What is the handle made of? How much will it cost? But that’s all the information that’s likely to be reserved for a launch event and it’s not the fare we’d normally hear in the OnePlus tease cycle.
Perhaps the company changes its pre-launch hype machine to provide us with some information that hasn’t yet been confirmed accidentally, but it’s more likely that OnePlus will simply spend a week confirming the specs it already told us about. In that case, it might be worth skipping the next week of brand news.
Well, if the OnePlus Nord Watch ends up on our list of the best cheap smartwatches, it will have been worth it in the end.
The long-awaited successor to the Nvidia Ampere series of graphics cards has been officially announced, with pricing and release dates for the Lovelace chips now known. Rumors have been pretty accurate, with the RTX 4090 and 4080 being released in October and November respectively. And the official price is also more expensive than we anticipated.
The next generation was codenamed ‘Lovelace’ in honor of British mathematician Ada Lovelace (who is considered to be the first computer programmer), but is better known as the GeForce RTX 40 series.
With the Nvidia hack earlier this year, we had more leaks and rumors than we anticipated, so we had a good idea of what to expect from Nvidia’s Ada architecture and when to expect it.
Nvidia GeForce RTX 4000 Lovelace: Get to the point
What is it? Nvidia’s Next-Gen GPU Architecture
When it will be available? RTX 4090 will be released on October 12, 2022 and RTX 4080 will be released on November 2022
What will it cost? The RTX 4090 will cost $1,599. The 12GB RTX 4080 model costs $899, while the 16GB model costs $1,199.
Nvidia GeForce RTX 4000 Lovelace: release date
It has been officially confirmed that the RTX 4090 will be available on October 12, 2022, while both models of the RTX 4080 will be available in November 2022.
Nvidia GeForce RTX 4000 Lovelace: price
We now have official pricing for the RTX 4090 as well as the two 4080 models. The 4090 will have an MSRP of $1,599 (about £1,400 / AU$2,400) for its 24GB GDDR6X.
Meanwhile, the GeForce RTX 4080 will have two models, the 12GB version and the 16GB version. The former will have an MSRP of $899 (£849 / AU$1,340), and the latter will cost $1,199 (about £1,050 / AU$1,790). It seems that the rumors that these chips would be even more expensive than the previous generation chips were right.
The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 officially has an MSRP of $699 (£649, about AU$975), while the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 officially comes in at just $499 (£469, about AU$680). The family’s flagship at the time before the RTX 3090 Ti was launched, the RTX 3090, was priced at $1,499 (£1,399, AU$2,100).
Chip shortages unfortunately ensured that many of these GPUs were artificially inflated, so many of us couldn’t afford to buy a card at this price point unless you were lucky enough to get a founders edition directly from Nvidia at launch.
Nvidia GeForce RTX 4000 Lovelace: specs
So far it has been confirmed by the Nvidia event that the Lovelace series will use 76 billion transistors as well as the 5nm production process. It’s also using next-gen ray tracing cores, an updated version of a feature that is present in all of Nvidia’s RTX-branded GPUs.
We also found that they will use Shader Execution Reordering (SER), which may make native ray tracing without DLSS possible. There is a fourfold increase in frame rate with DLSS 3 over native rendering, so DLSS will be even more impressive with DLSS 3.
As mentioned earlier, the most prominent speculation floating around on the vine is that Nvidia RTX 4000 GPUs can be twice as fast – and consume power – as the RTX 3000s, so you might want to upgrade your power supply ahead of time to avoid the inevitable shortage. when Lovelace is released.
Still, there’s a lot to go over, so here’s all the information on what we can expect from the GeForce RTX 4000 series.
Going by the leaked information, there are several models under the name 4090. Most likely the AD102 will be the main model, followed by the AD103 as the next most powerful version. The AD104-106 will likely be the mid-range option, and the AD107 will be for the entry-level market.
It looks like the AD102 GPU flagship model will feature 144 SMs in a single die compared to Ampere’s GA102 84 SMs, making this a 71% jump and one of the biggest in a generation. The AD102 can have up to 18,432 CUDA cores, a staggering 75% increase over Nvidia’s upcoming RTX 3090 Ti, which has 10,752 CUDA cores.
Established leaker Kopite7Kimi suggests that this graphics card would use the AD102 chip that will power the RTX 4090. Supposedly the 4080 is configured to run with 16GB of GDDR6X VRAM.
RTX 4080 will use AD103 chips, built with 16G GDDR6X, will have a TGP similar to GA102. The RTX 4070 will use AD104 chips, built with 12G GDDR6, 300W. Both have not yet started testing, but will soon.April 27, 2022
What also spills over here – and very much the hot topic about Lovelace, pun entirely intentional – is more about the power demands of those RTX 4000 GPUs. We’ve recently heard from Kopite7kimi that the RTX 4090 could have a hefty 600W power draw ( and the aforementioned super-heavy – perhaps RTX Titan – spin on the AD102 might be looking more like 900W, a truly impressive figure).
With this latest leak, Kopite7kimi claims that the RTX 4070 will have a TGP or power consumption of 300W. As for the RTX 4080, which will supposedly have a “TGP similar to the GA102”, the latter is the chip that is the engine of the current RTX 3080 and 3090 models (hence the expectation that the AD102 would also meet the RTX 4080, which apparently does not It is the case).
New photos have emerged that apparently show part of the upcoming Nvidia GeForce RTX 4090 Ti – and it looks like it’s going to be a monster GPU that people with smaller PCs might have a hard time installing.
The images were posted on the website chiphell forums (opens in new tab)and discovered by Wccftech (opens in new tab)and apparently show the Founders Edition heatsink and cooler, which if real would be Nvidia’s own version of the graphics card.
We also seem to get a good look at the heatsink, which is huge. The RTX 4090 Ti, if it exists, would likely be an extremely powerful graphics card – and a lot of power, and that means it will need a robust cooling solution to keep from overheating.
The rumors were true: the Nvidia GeForce RTX 4090 is indeed real, with Nvidia revealing its incredibly powerful main GPU in its GTC 2022 keynote.
This follows months of rumors and speculation that Nvidia was preparing its next-generation RTX 4000 series of processors, known as the ‘Lovelace’.
Nvidia has confirmed that the GeForce RTX 4090 will come with 24GB of G6X memory and will be two to four times faster than the (already incredibly fast) RTX 3090 Ti.
It will cost $1,599 (about £1,400 / AU$2,000), which, while pricey, isn’t as horrible as some rumors have suggested and will be available on 12 October.
A pair of RTX 4080s too
Nvidia also showed off not one, but two Nvidia RTX 4080 models, as the rumors also suggested; one with 12GB of GDDR6X VRAM and a more expensive version with 16GB of more powerful memory.
The 12GB version will start at $899 (about £800 / AU$1,400) while the 16GB version will cost $1,199 (about £1,000 / AU$1,800) and will be available in November – though none firm date has been provided.
According to Nvidia, the RTX 4080 will be two to four times faster than the 3080 Ti – although it’s unclear whether that refers to the 12GB or 16GB version.
