News hardware Graphics cards: towards an Nvidia RTX 4090 vs AMD Radeon RX 7900 duel in October
Whether on the side of Nvidia or AMD, the arrival of the next generation of graphics cards seems imminent. After having teased the release date of the RTX 4000 models, the Radeon RX 7000s are the talk of the town. And the least we can say is that the end of the year is likely to be eventful.
Much like Nvidia, AMD plans to launch its highest-end model in October
In the world of consoles, the excitement is in order every 5-7 years when a new generation of PlayStation, Xbox and other machines made in Nintendo are released, in that of the PC users, the excitement returns a little more often, rather around 2 to 3 years when a new generation of graphics cards is announced (the CPUs that come out every year do not excite us as much, it must be admitted).
After the complicated release of the current generations at the end of 2020, in the midst of the global Covid-19 epidemic, and which had to deal with unprecedented enthusiasm, unfortunately disrupted by shortages on a scale never seen before, the two manufacturers will once again confront each other head-on on this new generation. In the meantime, perhaps finally, that Intel really enters the dance.
In the great game of bluffing, when Nvidia announces an RTX 4090 twice as powerful as the current RTX 3090, AMD responds that its RDN 3 architecture will offer 50% more performance per watt. Very clever will be the one who can give the exact characteristics of the next references of the two brands, but one thing is certain, we should not be disappointed.
A promising end to the year in the graphics card market
