NVIDIA has just announced their GeForce RTX 40 series laptop GPUs, which is designed for power users looking for the fastest performance possible. The new line of cards will come with Max-Q technology, which is designed to optimize the entire system, including graphics, storage, and networking. This allows for the highest performance available in the market, while maintaining the size of the notebook. These cards are also designed to run games smoothly and efficiently.
Top-end RTX 4090
Nvidia announced a new line of GeForce RTX 40-series laptop graphics cards at CES 2023. The chips will have massive performance gains over last generation’s RTX 30-series cards. They will also be up to three times more power-efficient than their predecessors. Besides offering powerful gaming, the GPUs are designed to accelerate data science and 3D design workloads.
Powered by Nvidia’s Ada architecture, the new laptop GPUs deliver the largest generational leap in power efficiency. Coupled with Intel’s upcoming Raptor Lake-H CPU series, the GPUs deliver up to one-third more performance than previous silicon.
At the same time, Nvidia’s Ada-based laptop GPUs also include a suite of features designed to enhance ray-tracing and visual fluidity. These include DLSS 3, which is a software tool designed to improve the fidelity of video games.
Although Nvidia doesn’t yet have a full list of laptop models, it’s expected that the RTX 40-series will be available in pre-built PCs from various manufacturers. Some of the most important models will be produced by MSI, Gigabyte, Alienware, and Palit.
Besides the high-end RTX 4090, the laptop GPUs will come in RTX 4070, RTX 4050, and RTX 4060 varieties. Those GPUs are said to be fast enough for 1440p gaming at up to 80 frames per second.
AI can speed up workflows in 3D rendering
The use of artificial intelligence (AI) to speed up workflows in 3D rendering is gaining traction in the industry. These technologies can help improve the overall quality of output. It also helps automate parts of the process. For example, Adobe Dimension, a part of Adobe Photoshop, uses AI to accelerate render times.
A key part of the workflow is creating realistic materials. This can be time-consuming. To help artists, NVIDIA offers a library of 2,000 high-quality materials. Using photogrammetry techniques, they created the library.
Artists can use the Image to Material feature to create realistic textures from photos. Recently, Substance Alchemist added AI to this feature.
The GeForce RTX 30 Series GPUs is also utilizing AI to increase speed and performance in creative workflows. By using AI, designers can focus more time on creativity and less on manual tasks.
With the new June NVIDIA Studio Driver, reliability and stability were improved. The driver also optimized new features in Blender version 3.2 and BorisFX Sapphire release 2022.5. Moreover, Topaz Denoise AI 3.7.0 was optimized for the June Studio Driver.
Similarly, SpatialLabs’ Model Viewer allows users to quickly convert 2D content into stereo 3D. Combined with an exclusive Studio Driver, these tools can enhance workflows.
Max-Q advanced suite of technologies aimed at optimizing the entire laptop
The new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 Series Laptop GPUs delivers up to four times faster performance in AAA games and blazing-fast acceleration in popular creative apps. They feature fifth-generation Max-Q Technologies and NVIDIA DLSS 3 to optimize the entire laptop, including battery life, thermals, acoustics, and the entire system. These laptops can run graphically intense AAA games at high resolutions using ray tracing, DLSS, and Broadcast AI effects.
A new AI-powered Dynamic Boost 2.0 automatically delivers power between the GPUs. This technology allows for ultra-slim gaming laptops, delivering power to each GPU at the right time. It also reduces temperature.
The RTX 40 Series Laptop GPUs takes advantage of the NVIDIA Studio ecosystem, which includes preinstalled Studio software, color-accurate displays, collaboration tools, and more. In addition, GeForce RTX 40 Series laptops support NVIDIA’s Omniverse, a cloud-based service that gives users exclusive access to AI-powered apps.
Using a new AV1 encoding system, the GeForce RTX 4080 and 4090 GPUs can export videos up to twice as fast as they were on previous models. In addition, dual AV1 encoders can be enabled in top video editing apps for even faster video export.
GeForce RTX 40 Series laptops are up to three times more energy efficient than their predecessors. In fact, the RTX 4070 Ti only registers a few watts of power usage when idle.
