New RTX 4000 GPUs For Laptops, Compact GPU For Workstation
Nvidia revealed six new RTX GPUs for laptops and compact workstations running heavy-duty content creation, design and AI applications.
The company said laptops are coming later this month with the new RTX 5000, RTX 4000, RTX 3500, RTX 3000 and RTX 2000 GPUs, all of which use the same Ada Lovelace generation that powers Nvidia’s consumer-focused GeForce RTX 40 series graphics cards.
These GPUs come with up to 16GB of memory to handle large data sets, and they can provide up to two times faster single-precision floating point performance, up to two times faster ray tracing performance and up to two times faster AI training performance, compared to the previous generation of Ampere-powered RTX GPUs for workstation applications, according to Nvidia.
Nvidia is enabling powerful compact desktop workstations with the new RTX 4000 Small Form Factor GPU, which comes with the same performance improvements from the Ada Lovelace architecture. The company said global distributors such as PNY and Leadtek will make the compact workstation GPU available for an estimated price of $1,240 starting in April. Workstation vendors are expected to release systems with the new GPU later this year.
