Nvidia's new RTX 1000 and RTX 500 laptop GPUs are meant for the AI era of computing. They bring the Ada Lovelace architecture with 3rd Gen RT cores and 4th Gen Tensor Cores. Suited for professionals such as 3D artists, engineers, scientists, and more these new GPUs will be used in upcoming RTX professional laptops released by various manufacturers such as HP, Dell, Lenovo, and MSI. The RTX 1000 has 6GB GDDR6 VRAM and an AI performance measurement of 154 TOPS, with the RTX 500 having 4GB GDDR6 VRAM with 193 TOPS.
It's no secret that the GeForce Experience app was annoyingly bad. However, we don't have to worry about that anymore as NVIDIA has just released a brand new app. Simply called the NVIDIA app, this new experience combines GeForce Experience, NVIDIA Control Panel and RTX Experience apps. Some new features include redesigned UI, improved driver panel screen, and a new AI Filters.
Nvidia has released a new tool called Chat with RTX. This lets Windows PCs with Nvidia RTX 30 series or RTX 40 series GPU run an AI chatbot locally on their PC. Custom data can be given to the AI including documents, PDFs, and even YouTube videos. It includes the Mistral and Llama-2 open-source LLMs in the download. 16GB of RAM is also required and the GPU must have at least 8GB of VRAM capacity in order to work.
Nvidia has launched the new RTX 3050 6GB budget graphics card. It features a lower 6GB GDDR6 VRAM capacity, lower CUDA core count of 2304, and lower boost clo ck of 1.47 GHz. The total graphics power requirement is also lesser at 70W. The GPU does not have pricing and availability details yet but it has already been listed for sale. Nvidia's website has been updated with this GPU's existence.
Nvidia has released the RTX 4080 Super and now it is on sale. Various brands like MSI, Gigabyte, ASUS, PNY, and more have launched their lineup of new RTX 4080 Super graphics cards. The GPU costs $999 and is 2 to 5 percent more performant as compared to the non-Super RTX 4080.
One Redditor wants to make his RTX 3080 fanless. According to his post, the modder has previously been able to make something that works at 125W cooling capacity and was tested on an i7-10700K. His new project is quite aspirational, and uses several CPU coolers mounted on a copper block in a currently on-going attempt to cool down an RTX 3080 without any fans at all.
Nvidia has Tensor cores on its RTX graphics cards. These are used for various features apart from DLSS 3.5 and the AI frame generation tech released by the company in several games. As part of Nvidia's RTX Video enhancements, they had released RTX VSR before to upscale content. Now, with RTX Video HDR, users of any RTX graphics cards (20 series and above) can also make their content look like HDR. Nvidia touts it as an "AI-based HDR enhancement". Enabling RTX Video HDR is as easy as going into the Nvidia control panel.
Nvidia RTX 4090M and RTX 4080M have been spotted on the website of China-based retailer Goofish. These are laptop GPUs, repurposed into desktop cards. Specialized companies, who are not official brand partners of Nvidia, have made the RTX 4080M and RTX 4090M GPUs with reduced VRAM and CUDA core count. The price for an RTX 4090M is quite high too, even higher than the desktop variant.
Nvidia is expected to launch a new RTX 3050 graphics card with watered-down specifications this month. Basically, this RTX 3050 will cut-down the 8GB VRAM capacity to 6GB and come with other nerfs such as lower CUDA core count, memory bandwidth, GPU clock speeds, and power consumption. The new card is expected to launch in January 2024 at a sub-$200 price point, possibly aiming to become the next big budget-centric GPU.
At CES 2024, Nvidia launched new GeForce RTX 4080 Super, RTX 4070 Super, and RTX 4070 Ti Super graphics cards. The RTX 4070 Ti gets upgraded VRAM capacity, at 16GB GDDR6X. The other cards still feature the same amount of VRAM. The performance has been upgraded on all new Super cards, as compared to their non-Super variants. Nvidia has put more CUDA cores in all these GPUs. The new Super series starts from $599 and will be available starting Jan 17, 2024.
Nvidia is expected to release a cut-down version of the previously launched RTX 3050 graphics card. This new entry-level card will feature 6GB VRAM capacity instead of 8GB, as revealed in a new leak. Moreover, a lower TDP and clock speed for the RTX 3050 6GB has also been spotted in this leak.
RTX 4090 D has been launched in China. The GPU costs the same, but has lower amount of CUDA Cores. It also has slightly lower power at 425W, instead of 450W on the normal RTX 4090 which is now banned in the country. Nvidia has stated that RTX 4090 D is 5% less performant than the previous GPU in gaming and content creation. Also, the RTX 4090 D is not overclockable.
12 different RTX 40 Super GPUs have leaked by Videocardz. The new leak shows upcoming MSI GPU models including Suprim X, VENTUS 2X/3X, and Gaming X variants. The VRAM specification of RTX 4070 Ti, RTX 4070, and RTX 4080 Super has also been shown here. The RTX 4070 Ti Super will enjoy 16GB VRAM, while others remain at the same VRAM capacity as their 'non-Super' variants.
Nvidia RTX 4070 Super is an upcoming graphics card which is expected to be revealed at CES 2024, at NVIDIA's 'Special Address' event. However, one particular GPU model known as ASUS Dual RTX 4070 Super has leaked prior to its launch. The leak reveals a dual-fan design for the graphics card along with the same 12GB GDDR6X memory. This is also speculation on the 16-pin power connector. Will it be made of 12VHPWR or the safer, newer 12V-2X6 standard?
Nvidia RTX 4070 Super, RTX 4070 Super, and RTX 4080 Super are new graphics cards that are expected to be unveiled very soon. The launch details of these new RTX 40 GPUs from Nvidia have now been leaked, and it has been revealed that these RTX 40 Super GPUs will start hitting the shelves from January 17th, 2024 onwards. Nvidia will have its product announcement on January 8th, 2024 at its 'Special Address' CES 2024 event.
The US government had imposed sanctions upon Nvidia to prevent AI innovation in China. As a result, a top of the line gaming graphics card (RTX 4090) got banned in the country. Looks like Nvidia is working their way around this, and could be introducing a new RTX 4090 D 'Dragon' variant with slightly nerfed performance. If this is happening, Chinese gamers will still have a flagship GPU option to buy!
Nvidia has reported a staggering 206% uplift over the last year, and has reported a record revenue $18.1 Billion. It also partnered with Reliance Industries, Tata, and more under its data-center division.
