RTX 4000 Specs & Price Revealed And It's Not Pretty
Nvidia recently held their yearly GTC Conference on September 20, 2022 and shocked the world in more ways than one. They started off with their Nvidia Racer RTX video which looks very impressive. I loved the realistic lighting and post processing. Moving on from 3000 series “Ampere”, Nvidia’s 4000 series is named “Ada Lovelace” who is credited as being the first female programmer. The RTX 4090 and 4080 will definitely bring some serious performance, but there are a few issues that I must discuss. I have been very busy lately and I finally got a chance to sit down and view the GTC Conference several days after the conference. I received a message from a friend and he spoke about an RTX 4080 “Lite”. Initially I thought he was talking about the RTX 4080 initial release that would be followed up by the “Ti” version. After checking out the GTC Conference and the RTX 4000 series price and specifications I knew exactly what he meant. I will save the in-depth micro-architecture features for a RTX 4000 series review article. This article will focus on my issues that I am having with the 4000 series compared to the 3000 series and possibly Nvidia’s reasoning behind their decisions.
