RTX 40 series graphics cards are here: Double the performance.
The 30-series graphics cards have not gotten rid of the problem of shortages and premiums, and the 40-series graphics cards are already on the way.
According to the RTX 40 series graphics card information disclosed by Moore’s Law is Dead, the new series has a total of six models, namely AD102, AD103, AD104, AD106, AD107 and AD10B.
Although NVIDIA has not officially provided any news about the 40-series graphics cards, we can make reasonable guesses based on some signs and architectural news.
Let’s talk about the issues and product information about the 40-series graphics cards.
40 series graphics card performance: GDDR7 memory, performance level 4
In fact, the graphics card model that broke the news is still relatively reliable, and it is more consistent with the information of the 30 series graphics card.
Specifically, among the six models that broke the news, AD102 corresponds to RTX 4090 and RTX 4080, AD103 corresponds to RTX 4070 and RTX 4060Ti, and so on.
It is easy to find that the naming method of the new 40 series graphics cards is the same as that of the 30 series, and there is no product with the SUPER suffix, that is to say, the 40 series graphics cards will follow the naming rules from 4050 to 4090Ti.
The 40-series graphics card adopts the Ada Lovelace architecture, and the CUDA core increases by 70%. In addition, the L2 cache will also usher in a huge increase.
On the basis of the 6MB of the 30-series graphics card GA102 core, it will be increased to 96MB, which can greatly improve the efficiency of the graphics card and improve the memory delay.
It is also worth mentioning that the RTX 40 series graphics card will support GDDR7 memory, which means that its performance will be greatly improved.
The author guesses that the performance improvement of the 40 series graphics card will be very large, and some models can even reach the level of 4 levels compared to the previous generation products.
Specifically, the performance of the RTX 4060 will reach the level of the RTX 3080, and the RTX 4070 can reach the level of the RTX 3090.
With the substantial increase in the CUDA core and L2 cache, the performance improvement of the 40-series graphics card will be very impressive.
Along with performance comes power consumption. Although the Ada Lovelace architecture will have a better energy consumption ratio, in the face of greatly improved performance, the increase in power consumption is inevitable.
The recommended power supply for the 30-series graphics card is very high.
The recommended power supply for the RTX 3060 is 550W, while the RTX 3070Ti needs to start at 750W.
Overall, the 30-series graphics card has raised the starting point of the power supply.
After coming to the 40 series graphics card, the trend of increasing the rated power of the power supply will continue. It is predicted that the RTX 4060 graphics card needs a 650W power supply, while the RTX 4070Ti needs a power supply of more than 850W.
40 series graphics card price: a price increase bid farewell to cost performance
In fact, the performance improvement and the increase in power supply requirements are well understood, but in terms of price, the 40-series graphics cards may disappoint the waiting party, because there is a shortage of chips before and performance improvements later, making the pricing of 40-series graphics cards more aggressive. , the starting price may increase by one or even two grades.
