Geforce RTX 4090 & 4080: release date, price & more

Nvidia is back at it again with the new graphics cards, this time announcing the new RTX 4090 and 4080.

Just as some gamers were able to get their hands on the 3000 series, the 4000 series is announced. Open your wallets, PC hype-beasts.

RTX 4090 and 4080 release date & price

The 4090 and 4080 will be released on October 12, 2022.

The RTX 4080 will cost $899 and the stronger GPU, the RTX 4090, will cost $1,599.

The good news is that the 3000 series will take a massive dip in price once these GPUs are on the market.

Over 35 titles will see spec boots including Portal with RTX

Along with the reveal of the 4080/4090 came info on titles that will see a significant boost. A few of them are:

  • Cyberpunk 2077
  • A Plague Tale: Reqiuem
  • Atomic Heart
  • Bright Memory Infinite
  • Hogwarts Legacy

There’s over 35 titles looking to get a meaty boost, be sure to check out the full list on NVIDIA’s site.

Finally, we received the announcement that critically acclaimed puzzle FPS, Portal, is getting RTX love. Portal with RTX launches in Nov. 2023 and is free for Portal owners through Steam.

Get your wallets out, PC owners. Another year, another $1,500 for PC hype beasts to spend on an upgrade – this time with a bigger number: the RTX 4090.

I’m not someone who always has to have the newest hardware. I’ll check back in on the 3000 series once my 2070 stops being able to handle the games I’m playing.

That probably won’t be for a while, since I’m grinding GTA and Valorant most of the time. See you in 2025, Nvidia!
