The new RTX 4090 graphics card from Nvidia is just a short walk from its 12th October 2022 release date. Our testing so far reveals one of the greatest gen-on-gen performance increases ever, as well as a clever new technique for increasing frame rates in supported games: DLSS 3. We''ve covered all you need to know about the RTX 4090, from its price and performance to where it''s available.
So, why is the RTX 4090 so hotly anticipated? Well, as early leaks suggested, a denser chip with improved hardware capabilities add up to a powerful piece of kit. As a result of a process shrink to TSMC''s 4N process, design changes, and new-generation shader cores, Nvidia claims these new Ada Lovelace cards can be two to four times faster than their Ampere predecessors.
These bold promises are sure to attract a lot of attention at any price, therefore we''re anticipating substantial demand for these cards upon their launch - even with the recent transition of Ethereum to proof-of-stake, depressing the GPU cryptocurrency market, and the ease by which RTX 30-series cards can now be purchased. Here''s all you need to know about it, and the web pages you should probably bookmark!

How fast is the RTX 4090?
Full reviews aren''t yet available, but we''ve already begun testing, and early performance appears good. In games like Spider-Man Remastered and Cyberpunk 2077, DLSS 3 is in play, with 4K 120Hz, and even 8K 60Hz. Normally, graphics cards reviews will go live before launch, and more performance data will be added here.
Team Green demonstrated Cyberpunk 2077 at a speed of 22fps at 4K with RT enabled and DLSS 3 engaged, resulting in a massive speed up even if this is a cherry-picked demo. Even if the game is a cherry-picked demo, the firm also provided a video demo of Flight Sim 2020, which included RT + DLSS disabled and a 135fps with RT + DLSS 3 enabled. The evidence also
What''''s the RTX 4090 price?
The official recommended retail price for the RTX 4090 starts at $1499/1649. Custom models are likely to cost more due to the growing demand for high-end graphics cards right now, although the makers of those cards will point to factory overclocking to improve performance, more ports, beefier heatsinks, or other additions as an explanation for the price.
Another question arises: why is the RTX 4090 so expensive? Sure, both Nvidia and its partners aim to make a positive profit, recouping their investment in research and development, but there are also other issues in play. More advanced processes, like TSMC''s 4N used here, are more expensive to produce. Global conflicts and epidemics also continue to impact supply chains, but only GPUs remaining on store shelves, unold, are likely to cause any kind of downward decrease in prices.
What are the specs of the RTX 4090?
