On Wednesday, September 21, 2022, at 12:00 a.m. Japan time, NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang gave a keynote speech and announced the long-awaited next-generation graphics GeForce RTX 40 Series.
Next Generation GPU GeForce RTX 40 Series
The previous generation GeForce RTX 30 series was announced in September 2020, so the GeForce RTX 40 series is the third generation of RTX.
The GeForce RTX 20 series was announced in 2018, so the RTX architecture has been changing generations in two-year cycles.
This time, the product announced is the...
- GeForce RTX 4090
- GeForce RTX 4080(16GB)
- GeForce RTX 4080(12GB)
Let's check out the next generation GPUs right away!
Up to 4x performance!
On the GeForce RTX 4090 product page, performance comparisons were made with "Microsoft Flight Simulator," "Warhammer 40,000: Darktide," "Cyberpunk 2077 (in late racing overdrive mode)" as performance comparisons.
Compared to the previous generation RTX 3090 Ti, the FPS of "Microsoft Flight Simulator" and "Warhammer 40,000: Darktide" is approximately double.
Cyberpunk 2077 (in late-tracing overdrive mode)" recorded values more than four times higher.
A comparison video of "Cyberpunk 2077" has also been released, showing how smoothly it moves through beautiful ray-traced cityscapes.
The AI graphics technology " DLSS " is behind this performance.
The 4th generation Tensor cores and optical flow accelerators in the GeForce RTX 40 series are used to achieve DLSS 3.
In addition, NVIDIA's supercomputers train and regularly improve the AI models, and the latest models are delivered via Game Ready drivers.
DLSS grows in real time as time goes by.

Many of the games have realistic graphics that take full advantage of ray tracing, but there are also titles such as Portal and Tower of Fantasy!
The classic "Portal" is now available as "Portal with RTX"!
Released in 2007, Portal's graphics are neither good nor bad.
The graphics of "Portal", which was released in 2007, are not so good, and it is not a game that requires high graphics quality to begin with, but the demo video of "Portal with RTX" makes me want to play it with superb graphics!
"Portal with RTX" will be available as free DLC for "Portal" owners in November 2022!
The Steam page is already up and running, so be sure to add it to your wish list!
Support for 8K HDR Gameplay Capture
The benefits of DLSS 3 are also here.
"GeForce RTX 4090" enables 8K HDR gameplay capture and viewing.
8K resolution depicts every detail of the image with four times more pixels than 4K and 16 times more pixels than 1080p.
While the price of 4K monitors is about to settle down, 8K monitors are laughably expensive....
You can see the refresh rate at 8K resolution, i9-12900K CPU, 32GB RAM, and Windows 11 (64-bit) OS.
Across the board, the FPS exceeds 80, indicating that it is practical enough.
I can't remember numbers like 7680 x 4320! but for now, let's be honest and be happy with the size of these numbers.
"With the GeForce RTX 4090 and GeForce Experience's ShadowPlay, you can capture 8K60 HDR gameplay with one button.
RTX 4090 starts at ¥298,000 RTX 4080 starts at ¥164,800
The GeForce RTX 40 series also includes features such as NVIDIA Reflex and NVIDIA Ansel, a new product called "RTX Remix," and much more.
The GeForce RTX 4090 will be available on Wednesday, October 12, 2022, starting at 298,000 yen, and the GeForce RTX 4080 will be available in November 2022, starting at 219,800 yen for the 16GB model and 164,800 yen for the 12GB model.
