Extremely anticipated: After what looks like an eternity of ready, Nvidia is lastly giving its RTX 4000-series graphics playing cards their official unveiling right now at GTC 2022. You may watch your entire GeForce Past livestream proper right here at 8am PT / 11am ET / 4pm BST.
Nvidia will reveal its next-generation structure, now-confirmed to be known as Ada Lovelace, at its GPU Expertise Convention (GTC) in the course of the GeForce Past keynote occasion hosted by its leather-based jacket-loving CEO, Jensen Huang.
We nonetheless do not know which RTX 4000 playing cards will likely be unveiled, however it appears the RTX 4090 and RTX 4080 are just about certainties, and the RTX 4070 is greater than possible going to be on present, too. There are rumors that we’ll additionally see variations of the playing cards, probably with completely different reminiscence configurations and even Ti variations, in a couple of hours.

The Nvidia GeForce Twitter account has been teasing the arrival of the Ada Lovelace structure not too long ago. One of many clips it posted reveals a sticky observe with the numbers (208) 629-7538. It is not 100% sure what they signify, however the concept is that the ‘629’ within the middle of the string is the AD102 GPU’s die dimension. This was rumored to be 628mm squared, suggesting the precise determine is 1mm bigger than thought.
The second quantity, 7538, is greater than possible the variety of transistors. We have heard the RTX 4090 will characteristic 75 billion transistors, so the precise determine may very well be 75.38 billion. Whereas the ‘208’ originally of the sequence could seek advice from the GPU providing 2.08x extra efficiency than the GA102 discovered within the RTX 3090 and RTX 3080.
One other clip reveals the “Diagram for the computation by the Engine of the Numbers of Bernoulli” by Ada Lovelace, seemingly confirming the structure’s identify—the primary time the corporate has performed so formally.
We’re additionally anticipating the primary three RTX 4000 playing cards to launch in reverse order of energy, with the RTX 4090 first adopted by the RTX 4080 after which the RTX 4070. Final month introduced stories that the RTX 4090 was in manufacturing, and we have seen leaked photos of third-party playing cards from Zotac (above), Galax, and others.
Lovelace is anticipated to supply unbelievable efficiency in comparison with the current-gen playing cards, with the RTX 4090 greater than twice as quick as the present RTX 3090, and even the RTX 4070 (or its Ti mannequin) in a position to match the RTX 3090 Ti. The sequence can be mentioned to be very power-hungry and will carry a hefty price ticket. We’ll discover out which rumors had been correct in a couple of hours.
