Nvidia has announced the latest generation of its graphics cards, headlined by the Nvidia RTX 4090.
The card will be released on October 12. The RTX 4080 will release in November in two SKUs, a 16GB GDDR6X which will retail for $1,199 and a 12GB GDDR6X which will cost $899.

The new cards are powered by Ada Lovelace, the new generation of RTX tech. It’s designed to substantially improve ray-traced lighting in games thanks to its use of DLSS 3.
DLSS 3 is an AI-powered performance multiplier that can be up to 4x the performance of brute-force rendering, according to Nvidia. The tech is coming to the world’s most popular game engines, such as Unity and Unreal Engine.
DLSS 3 is the latest iteration of the company’s critically acclaimed Deep Learning Super Sampling technology and introduces a new capability called Optical Multi Frame Generation.
Optical Multi Frame Generation generates entirely new frames, rather than just pixels, delivering “astounding” performance boosts, according to Nvidia.
Because DLSS Frame Generation executes as a post-process on the GPU, it can boost frame rates even when the game is bottlenecked by the CPU, the company claims.
It’s also been announced that the following 35 games or applications will support the tech at launch:
- A Plague Tale: Requiem
- Atomic Heart
- Black Myth: Wukong
- Bright Memory: Infinite
- Conqueror’s Blade
- Cyberpunk 2077

According to Nvidia, RTX Remix can “can add ray tracing with just a few clicks, and gives modders the tools to make ambitious remasters, even for games that were previously unmoddable.”
