OK, it’s about to start! You can watch together on YouTube.
Jeff Fisher is now on and starting with “the game”! So that’s good – turn on your GPUs!
Jeff says 2022 is going to be a tough year – yes, it’s not bad. I think what he meant was that it was hard for all of us, not just Nvidia.
He’s now talking about the Ada Lovelace architecture that came out last year with the RTX 4080 and RTX 4090. Jeff says each GPU comes bundled with a supercomputer. These are good GPUs, but it can push it a bit…
Now we’re talking about DLSS 3. Fair play, I think it’s good technology. Now 50 DLSS 3 compatible games have been released or will be released soon.
That’s well below the 250 DLSS games currently available, but Nvidia assures us that DLSS 3 support is growing faster than any other Nvidia technology.
We have new exclusive footage from Witch Fire, the upcoming game that will support DLSS 3. It looks… eh, ok. Like a mix of Bloodborne and Doom Eternal.
Several other games have been shown, including Warhaven, which again isn’t that exciting. This time a mix of Assassin’s Creed and Elden Ring.
Oh, more games. Come on! Show us the gear!
Throne and Liberty was also shown. And now Atomic Heart. It looks like it’s been pretty intense gaming so far – something we’d normally see at E3 (RIP).
Atomic Heart at least looks cool and offers great graphics. Some other games have been pretty disappointing in the graphics department, which doesn’t really sell new GPUs.
Now we’re talking about GeForce Now, the game streaming service. I really love GeForce Now, and the RTX 4080 superpods will offer five times more power than the Xbox Series X, according to Nvidia! And with Nvidia Reflex, latency should be half what console gamers see.
The RTX 3080 Membership is now dead – and it’s now called Ultimate, starting Q1 2023, and will cost $19.99 a month – the same as it was when it was the RTX 3080 level. Nice! RTX 3080 members will also receive the Ultimate version upgrade.
Oooh 4070 Ti is real!
Clearly faster than the 3090 Ti! It’s pretty crazy and almost half the power.
Available January 5 for $799.
We are talking about laptops now.
RTX 4000 Series Mobile GPUs Announced!
Max-Q gets a shout out. Gaming laptops in 2023 will feature Lovelace GPUs, with DLSS 3 added to the Max-Q to keep power levels low, extend battery life, and quieter fans.
14-inch laptops will be able to handle creative projects.
Then there’s also a game with twice the power of the PS5, but half as much (and eight times more expensive).
Mobile GPUs RTX 4070, RTX 4060 and RTX 4050 will be available, offering up to 80 FPS at 1440p in Ultra.
This will be for mid to high priced laptops starting at $999 and will be available starting February 22.
Don’t think advanced players have been left out! It’s Nvidia after all!
There will also be flagship laptops from the RTX 40 series, which will be equipped with mobile graphics processors RTX 4090 and RTX 4080.
These will be powerful 4K gaming laptops, but they’ll also be pricey, starting at $1999, but I expect most will sell for plot still. It will be available from February 8.
See details above for what we know so far.
This is the end of the games section. Now we deal with artificial intelligence, creative tools and the UNIVERSE.
Does anyone really care about OMNIVERSE? I do not. Stop trying to make OMNIVERSE something, Nvidia.
For details on the RTX 4070 Ti, check out our launch news.
While I’m not a digital artist, I can definitely see how Ada Lovelace’s technology can make 3D graphics look better and require less resources.
Nvidia is talking about robots now. Don’t do Skynet, don’t do Skynet, don’t do Skynet…
…Nvidia will probably make Skynet.
Since Nvidia is now talking about robots, I will end this blog live. There were some good reveals. It’s nice to see an RTX 4000 series GPU for less than $1,000, and I can’t wait to see how well the RTX 4070 Ti performs.
Nvidia’s claim that it performs better than the RTX 3090 Ti is certainly a big one – it was an incredibly expensive GPU that came to market less than a year ago.
Personally, I think the RTX 4000 series graphics cards for laptops were the most exciting discovery. If Nvidia could harness the power of Lovelace GPUs in portable gaming laptops, that would be incredibly impressive. For some people, this may even mean that there is no need to buy a desktop computer anymore.
I’m not there yet, but the idea of a laptop with an RTX 4090 that’s a fraction of the size of my gaming PC is definitely cool.
It’s also the first time we’ve seen an x90-class GPU in a laptop – the last generation peaked in the RTX 3080 Ti. Could this mean gaming laptops are worth considering again for PC gamers who want the absolute best gaming performance?
Of course, I will never be able to afford an RTX 4090-equipped laptop, and I suspect most people won’t.
So the RTX 4050 and 4060 mobile GPUs are really interesting. Thanks to DLSS 3, we were able to see some really impressive affordable gaming laptops.
Of course, there are no desktop RTX 4050, 4060 or 4070 GPUs – could this suggest that these desktop GPUs are coming?
Back to the keynote, Nvidia announced that GeForce Now will be coming to some electric cars for people to stream games to their vehicles. Of course not while driving.
Still, I’m not too sold for the benefits of playing a game in the car. There are handheld devices like the Steam Deck (or even a smartphone), so if I’m desperate to play something while I’m away from home, I can already do that.
Looks like we’re done. Thanks Nvidia! I liked the piece about the GPU. The rest… not so much.
Thank you for reading together!
