Nvidia’s Geforce RTX 4090 should once again push the frame rate and resolution limits of modern games. Nvidia itself doesn’t seem to be exclusively aiming for 4K or even 8K gaming with the graphics card, but also sees intended use at 1440p with high frame rates. Read more about it below.
Until now, gamers had to decide whether they wanted a high refresh rate but a low resolution, or a high resolution but a low refresh rate, as even the fastest GPUs in today’s demanding games couldn’t balance both factors. This may soon change with Nvidia’s RTX 4000 series, which the manufacturer has high hopes for. That’s about twice the performance of the Geforce RTX 3090 Ti and FP32 up to 90 TFLOPs compared to the 40 TFLOPs achieved by the Ampere.
In addition, DLSS 3 is installed, which again promises higher frame rates and should shift the load from the CPU to the graphics card. Nvidia itself, among other things, considers the Geforce RTX 4090 a graphics card that should appeal to competitive gamers at 1440p resolution with 360 fps frame rates. Monitors designed for such tasks, such as the Asus ROG Swift PG27AQN, should be available worldwide from this fall, allowing for system latencies of up to 10 milliseconds.
According to its research, Nvidia sees up to a three percent advantage when targeting games compared to Full HD at the same refresh rate, especially when targeting the head. In testing, the RTX 4090 achieved at least 300 fps in popular eSports games such as Apex Legends, Fortnite, Overwatch, Rainbow Six Siege and Valorant and should provide an extremely smooth gaming experience.
If the RRP of $1599 is too much and you still want to enjoy high gaming performance, you should keep an eye on Nvidia’s social media in the coming weeks. The manufacturer then launched a contest with the hashtag “BeyondFast” in which you received entries for the Geforce RTX 4090 lottery.
