Nvidia had already confirmed it could be at CES and has three convention rooms booked, however up till in the present day, it had not introduced any occasions or keynotes.

We now know {that a} Particular Handle is happening on January 8, in the future earlier than CES begins in earnest.

There is no such thing as a point out of the Tremendous collection in Nvidia’s announcement, however that does not imply they will not be there. At its particular tackle earlier than CES 2023, Nvidia’s head of PC enterprise, Jeff Fischer, introduced the RTX 4070 Ti (or tie) regardless of there being no affirmation of its arrival beforehand.

Early rumors claimed that the RTX 4080 Tremendous would use the AD102 GPU and include 20GB of reminiscence.

We’d additionally see the VRAM elevated to 16 GB from 12 GB, however that will be a shock at this level.

One other RTX 4000 Tremendous rumor claims that each one the brand new playing cards may have the identical or related TDP as their non-Tremendous variations.

There is no such thing as a phrase on pricing but, but when the claims that some present playing cards are being discontinued show to be true, then the costs for the Tremendous variants could be the identical as, or at the very least near, these of the usual variations.
