NVIDIA GeForce Series 40 (RTX 4000) - performance and power consumption

Good to be back - could not login for about 24 hours. And it seems first results (estimations?) have emerged for Nvidia Series 40 - as usual take it with a pinch of salt, these are also synthetic results:

Over here power prices are getting close to $1.5/kwh - so there's this too:

 

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 Ti (48 GB 600W)
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 (24 GB 450W)

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 (16 GB 340W)

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 (12 GB 285W)
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060 (8 GB 235W)

 

There's not much green nor "save the planet" in the Series 40 - actually the worst power consumption ever seen - going totally the wrong way. We need more performance using less power, not more performance using a lot more power. 2c.

- and remember, do not buy any of the above, before Meta officially supports the cards - if you care for VR 😉

The cat is out of the bag - more or less:

One problem may be the power consumption, Asus now recommends 1000 - 1200w psus, while the recommended 850w for my Asus Strix OC RTX 3090. Corsair also just stated that they are ready with a 1500w psu for the new video cards. Not sure that'll make our planet much greener, lol. Never thought it would happen, but now I can tell the wife that compared to Nvidia's new high-end king, my video card is much more green and environment-friendly 😉 It seems that while a 3090 needed about 350w, expect about 500w for the 4090. If you're going for a plain-vanilla 4090, a 850w psu should be fine - but going for a high-end factory oc'ed version, you many need more (also depending on your cpu). 

And older psus may not work with the new 4080-4090 due to requirements for psu connection and the plugs (proper psus should be able to deliver 600w on a single line). More here:

Nvidia has posted amazing performance results, but beware that these may primarily be using the new DLSS3. Many games do not support DLSS3. According the some on Reddit, the 4080 12GB may be about 25% faster than the 3080 - so for now, don't trust claims of 2-4x better performance.

haha don't do it xD these cards are broken as heck. Something really off about what they are doing here with them and its pretty crazy from all the bad press they are getting off it right now.

Another blasphemer making fun of the 4090 😄

A good thing about RTX 40 Series may be that we get Portal with raytracing and more:

 

 

Free if you own the game:
