iGame GeForce RTX 4090 Vulcan OC-V Review
iGame GeForce RTX 4090 Vulcan OC-V Colorful
Keeping with its tradition of releasing a new graphics architecture every two years, this year NVIDIA is introducing the Ada Lovelace GPU. The Ada GPU is built on the foundation laid by Turing. NVIDIA describes the Ada Lovelace GPUs as a quantum leap over the Ampere, and the GeForce RTX 4090 Founders Edition based on the NVIDIA Ampere GPU outperforms the previous generation in every way.
The Ada GPU architecture has a lot to talk about in this review, but so does the new RTX range. The Ada suite delivers faster shader performance, faster ray tracing performance, and faster AI performance. Built on an entirely new functional node and featuring an architecture designed from the ground up, Ada is a killer product with plenty of numbers to speak of.
The foundation at Ada was to take everything NVIDIA learned through the Turing & Ampere architectures and not only improve it but also use its DNA to shape a product in an entirely new performance class. NVIDIA made long claims when they presented the Ada lineup last month with up to 4x performance claims and we’ll find out if NVIDIA has hit all the mark with its Ada architecture because this review will be your guided path to finding out what makes Ada and how it performs against its predecessors.
Today, we are going to take a look at the Color iGame GeForce RTX 4090 Vulcan OC-V. The graphics card was provided by Color for the sole purpose of this review and we’ll look at the technology, design, and performance metrics in detail.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 Series Gaming Graphics Cards – The Biggest GPU Performance Leap in Modern History
Turing was not just a graphics core, the graphics core was the basis for future GPUs. The future is now being fulfilled with next-generation consoles that delve into conversations about ray tracing and superior AI-assisted sampling techniques. NVIDIA had a head start with Turing & Ampere and its Ada generation will do things infinitely better.
The Ada GPU does many of the things we’ve come to expect from a traditional GPU, but at the same time, it also breaks the barrier when it comes to unconventional GPU operations. Just to summarize some of the features:
- New Multiprocessor Stream (SM)
- New fourth generation motor cores
- New acceleration for real-time ray tracing
- New shading improvements
- New deep learning features for graphics and inference
- New high-performance GDDR6X memory subsystem
- The new HDMI 2.1 display engine and the next generation of NVENC / NVDEC
The above technologies are some of the basic building blocks of the Ada GPU, but there’s more to the graphics core itself that we’ll talk about in detail, so let’s get started.
