NVIDIA Desktop Graphics Card With Cuda GPU

geforce-rtx

Recently we read about computer desktop rendering software that can make use of the GPU, in addition to the CPU, to increase the rendering speed. The AMD Threadripper 5995 WX CPU is a 3D graphics designer’s dream with 64 cores and 128 threads, but it also comes with a big price tag that is beyond the reach of enthusiasts. The ability to utilise the GPU such as the NVIDIA Cuda Cores is a real bonus.

In this article, we keep track of the key specifications of the NVIDIA graphics card that we feel could help us decide when and what to buy, before going into the detailed tests done by other websites.

Series 40, released October 2022. Architecture: Ada Lovelace

Cuda Capability: 8.9
Ray Tracing Cores: Gen 3
Tensor Cores: Gen 4
Display Resolution:

  • Up to 4k 12-bit HDR at 240Hz with DP 1.4a + DSC.
  • Up to 8k 12-bit HDR at 60Hz with DP 1.4a + DSC or HDMI 2.1 + DSC.
  • With dual DP 1.4a + DSC, up to 8K HDR at 120Hz

RTX 408097282.51 GHz2.21 GHz24GB GDDR6X256-bit320W750W90CHDMI, 3xDP
RTX 4070 TI76802.61GHz2.31 GHz12GB GDDR6X192-bit285W700W90CHDMI, 3xDP

In general, all the models in RTX Series 40 have a higher boost clock, base clock and memory than RTX Series 30.

RTX 4070 TI has 7680 Cuda cores compared to RTX 3070 TI 6144 Cuda cores, but it loses out to the RTX 3080 or higher. Even though it has slightly lower Cuda core count, users may experience better speed due to the significantly higher boost and base clock of the Series 40.

Series 30, released May 2022. Architecture: Ampere

Cuda Capability: 8.6
Ray Tracing Cores: Gen 2
Tensor Cores: Gen 3
Display Resolution:

  • Up to 4k 12-bit HDR at 240Hz with DP 1.4a + DSC.
  • Up to 8k 12-bit HDR at 60Hz with DP 1.4a + DSC or HDMI 2.1 + DSC.
  • With dual DP 1.4a + DSC, up to 8K HDR at 120Hz
