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.
