At CES 2023, NVIDIA officially unveiled its new GeForce RTX 4000 series graphics cards for notebooks, the RTX 4070 Ti desktop graphics card, and much more to make a splash in the 2023 gaming year. We present all NVIDIA CES 2023 highlights here.
NVIDIA CES 2023: RTX 4000 brings more performance and efficiency to notebooks
At CES today, NVIDIA unveiled new GeForce RTX-40 series laptops. The GeForce RTX-40 series is based on the highly efficient Ada-Lovelace GPU architecture, which embodies NVIDIA’s biggest generational leap in performance and power efficiency. The GPUs are used in over 170 laptops from all major manufacturers.
The new GeForce RTX 40 Series laptops are up to three times more energy efficient than the previous generation and bring Ada architecture, NVIDIA DLSS 3 and fifth-generation Max-Q technologies to laptops for the first time. The promise is up to four times the performance in AAA titles like Cyberpunk 2077, and creatives will benefit from high acceleration for exclusive NVIDIA studio apps like Omniverse and top creative apps like Blender.
The new lineup of GPUs for laptops includes GeForce RTX 4080, 4070, 4060 and 4050 GPUs. For the first time in laptop history, there’s also an RTX-4090 GPU, which aims to make a splash with a whopping 16 gigabytes of VRAM and offers twice as much memory as the RTX 3080 in current high-end gaming laptops.
“With the Ada architecture, we set out to transform the performance and power efficiency of gaming and creative laptops,” said Jeff Fisher, senior vice president of the GeForce business at NVIDIA. “The new RTX-40 series delivers high-performance class performance in laptops as slim as 14 inches – a new milestone.”
Powerful features for gaming laptops
- NVIDIA-DLSS-3 has been optimized for laptops and integrated with Max-Q technologies, including Whispermode and BatteryBoost. This improves performance, acoustics, and battery life by up to 2x.
- The lowest-voltage GDDR6 memory ever, delivered in partnership with leading manufacturers.
- Tri-speed memory control allows the GPU to dynamically switch to newer, more power-efficient memory states.
- Ada’s on-chip memory has been optimized for Max-Q, doubling bandwidth, increasing size by 16x, and improving clock gating.
The first GeForce RTX-4000 series notebooks will be available as early as February 08 from leading global manufacturers, including Acer, Alienware, ASUS, Dell, GIGABYTE, HP, Lenovo, MSI, Razer and Samsung. The new RTX 4070, 4060 and 4050 series notebooks are faster than the flagship models of the previous generation, with only a third of the GPU power, they will follow from February 22, 2022.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Ti launches for 899 euros
The new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Ti desktop graphics card is, as expected, the former RTX 4080 with 12 GB of VRAM, which the manufacturer had discontinued on October 15, ahead of the actual release.
The new GeForce RTX 4070-Ti GPU is up to three times faster than the GeForce RTX 3090-Ti thanks to NVIDIA’s innovative Ada-Lovelace architecture and NVIDIA DLSS-3, while consuming almost half as much power. It is primarily aimed at gamers who want to play in 1440p and only allows itself a peak of 285 watts TGP – significantly less than, for example, the RTX 3080, also with 12 GB VRAM.
The best part, however, is the price, as the new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Ti graphics card is said to cost just 899 euros and will be offered by various partners as early as January 05, 2023. However, there is no Founders Edition. Here, the official website of NVIDIA provides additional details.
GeForce Now gets new RTX 4080 tier
On the other hand, those who prefer to stream their games via GeForce Now also have reason to rejoice. Because with the new “Ultimate” membership, you get the power of the RTX 4080 graphics card. Powered by NVIDIA’s Ada-Lovelace architecture, the updated GeForce-NOW-RTX-4080 SuperPODs deliver over 64 teraflops of graphics performance for a single user.
This translates to more than five times the performance of an Xbox Series X and nearly double the performance of the previous generation of SuperPODs. Streaming at up to 240 frames per second with full ray tracing and DLSS 3 is promised, straight from the cloud. With NVIDIA Reflex, GeForce NOW achieves click-to-pixel latency of under 40 milliseconds – another first in cloud gaming.
GeForce NOW Ultimate membership is available today for new users at a price of $19.99 per month or $99.99 for six months. GeForce RTX 3080 members’ accounts have already been upgraded to the new membership at their price. The more powerful GeForce RTX 4080 streaming of the new SuperPODs will be available in North America and Europe starting at the end of the month and will continue to expand in the following months. More details are also available directly from NVIDIA.
