Nvidia RTX 4090 Graphics Cards: [Release date, Price, Specs, and News]

What are Nvidia RTX 4090 Graphics Cards?

Nvidia’s new RTX 4000 series graphics cards are finally here!

Instead of the traditional specifications, Nvidia is redefining what a graphics card should be with real-time ray tracing. The company announced this in their official blog.

NVIDIA® GeForce RTX® 4090 GPUs are beyond fast for gamers and creators. They're powered by the ultra-efficient NVIDIA Ada Lovelace architecture which delivers a quantum leap in both performance and AI-powered graphics. Experience lifelike virtual worlds with ray tracing and ultra-high FPS gaming with the lowest latency. Discover revolutionary new ways to create, unprecedented workflow acceleration.

What is New and Improved on the RTX 4090 Graphics Cards?

Ray Tracing

The Ada architecture unleashes the full glory of Ray Tracing, which simulates how light behaves in the real world. With supercomputing power and a third-gen RT Core, you can experience incredibly detailed virtual worlds like never before."


The performance multiplier, powered by AI.

DLSS is a revolutionary breakthrough in AI-powered graphics that massively boosts performance. Powered by the new fourth-gen Tensor Cores and Optical Flow Accelerator on GeForce RTX 4090 GPUs, DLSS 3 uses AI to create additional high-quality frames.


Victory measured in milliseconds.

NVIDIA Reflex and GeForce RTX 4090 GPUs deliver the lowest latency and best responsiveness for the ultimate competitive advantage. Built to optimize and measure system latency, Reflex provides faster target acquisition, quicker reaction times, and the best aim precision for competitive games.


The benefits of the RTX 4090


The main benefit of the RTX 4090 is its increased performance over previous generation graphics cards. It is also more power efficient than older cards, meaning it generates more performance from the same resources as previous cards. The card's additional features make it an attractive option for gamers and professionals who require the best possible performance from their graphics card.

Increased responsiveness: NVIDIA Reflex makes games more responsive, making them enjoyable to play for gamers with low-end or mid-range hardware setups

Speed up ray tracing performance: Ada enhancements speed up ray tracing performance in real-time 3D games and applications.

Incredible generational leap in performance: The NVIDIA Ada Lovelace architecture delivers a massive generational leap in performance, efficiency and capabilities.

Efficiency: With over twice the performance at the same power compared to Ampere, Ada is incredibly efficient.

Excellent scalability and overclockability: As power is increased, Ada remains efficient and able to handle high-performance gaming or rendering requirements with ease.

Increases Shader power: Packing up to 90-TFLOPs of Shader power on NVIDIA GPUs, with 83-TFLOPs on the GeForce RTX 4090.

Coming soon to 8 new games: Updates to NVIDIA Reflex will enable full ray tracing in eight new games including Overwatch 2 and Cyberpunk 2077.


When will they be released?

The RTX 4090 will be available from October 12th, 2022

How much will they cost?

With prices starting at £1679, the GeForce RTX 4090 is the ultimate GeForce GPU for gamers and creators. It can run twice as fast using the same amount of power as previous-generation champ, the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti. This quantum leap in performance is made possible by Ada architecture, and many innovations outlined above.
