Nvidia 4000 Series: Rumored specs, price, and more | Inquirer Technology

Everything You Need To Know About the Nvidia 4000 Series [Updated]

/ 10:12 AM September 13, 2022

The gaming industry continues to push what is possible thanks to graphics cards. Soon, Nvidia may impress gamers yet again with its 4000 series of graphics cards. Will it beat competitors like the Intel Arc Alchemist and the AMD RDNA 3? 

Let us find the possible answer based on current online rumors. Fans expect an RTX 4000 reveal on September 2022 because of the recent announcement teaser on its social media pages. 


It mentions a “Project Beyond” ahead of the GPU Technology Conference (GTC) on September 19 to 22, featuring a keynote speech from CEO Jensen Huang. Some people speculate that an RTX 4090 launch would happen in October.

Perhaps we would see the RTX 4090 Ti after Halloween. Also, the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) now lists trademarks for several RTX 4000 model names. 


Rumored specs of the Nvidia 4000 series

Twitter user HXL leaked screenshots of an unnamed graphics card from China’s Chiphell forums. People thought this was the upcoming RTX 4090 because of its 3DMark Time Spy Extreme score of 20,192.

We cannot confirm that the images show the real Nvidia 4000 series. If it is real, the upcoming graphics card will be 90% faster than the RTX 3090.

The 4000 series will use Lovelace architecture, while the other uses Ampere. Reports indicate that Lovelace will become two times faster than the latter. As a result, the screenshots may truly feature the anticipated graphics card.

The pictures also show that the card can reach a frequency of 3,015 MHz. Meanwhile, the RTX 3090 Founders Edition only gets to 1,695 MHz. In turn, we may expect the Nvidia 4000 series to have a power limit of 800W.


HXL also said that the card uses air cooling and is too large to fit into a mid-sized tower. You may click the embedded tweet above and see it for yourself.

We cannot be sure about the price of this new graphics card before it launches. However, we could guess based on previous models. For example, the RTX 3090 came out with a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $1,499.

That is around ₱85,308.84 based on the current exchange rate. Meanwhile, the Nvidia Titan RTX costs $2,499 or ₱142,243.08. Consequently, we could expect the RTX 4090 to cost roughly $1,499 to $1,999. 

In other words, you might need ₱85,308.84 to ₱113,832.06 to purchase it in the Philippines. Perhaps Nvidia will surprise us by making the 4000 series better and cheaper!
