Nvidia GeForce RTX 40 GPU:

The teaser also includes a phone number, which when called returns the message “Tell us: how fast would you like to go?” One can leave their reply after the prompt which could likely be compiled and played on stage on the launch day.
What to expect?
The launch will most likely include the announcement of three new GPUs. The GeForce RTX 4090 will take the lead, followed by the GeForce RTX 4080 and GeForce RTX 4070.
As for the specifications, the top-of-the-line RTX 4090 will have up to 16,384 CUDA cores, 24 GB of GDDR6X memory, and a TDP of up to 600 W. It is said to be nearly twice as fast as the RTX 3090.
The GeForce RTX 4080, on the other hand, will be available in 12GB and 16GB configurations. The former will have a TGP of 285W, while the latter will have a limit of 340W. Naturally, this means that both versions may have significantly different specifications, which may result in a price difference.
Nvidia GeForce RTX 40 GPU: Price and Availability
In terms of pricing, the GeForce RTX 4090 is expected to cost around USD 1,500. However, a retailer in Vietnam has been found charging over USD 2,000 for the pre-order. So we’ll have to wait and see what the final price is. The GeForce RTX 4090 is expected to go on sale in October, with the GeForce RTX 4080 and RTX 4070 debuting a month later.
