Nvidia is expected to announce the RTX 4090, the first GPU in its next generation of graphics cards today. This “GeForce Beyond” presentation is part of the larger GTC 2022 keynote, which will cover topics beyond just PC graphics. Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang is expected to address topics across the company’s line of cloud and AI services available to applications such as robotics and self-driving cars, as well as highlight the company’s work in powering the technology behind the metaverse.

The event kicked off at 8 a.m. PT today, so check below for the latest updates from Nvidia or watch the RTX 4090 event live.

Nvidia announces the Drive Thor chip for self-driving cars

Jensen's moving on to self-driving cars now. Interestingly, they've replaced a Drive Atlan, a car for automotive that never actually came out. But he says with Ada Lovelace, they had access to way more performance, so now Atlan is no more.

Jensen is imagining a single computer that runs a car, which currently is managed by multiple computers -- all run on software on Drive Thor. Jensen is connecting what Nvidia has done with Drive Sim for testing self-driving cars. Using AI and neural networks, entire 3D scenes are recreated from real sensor data, and then placed into Omniverse. It's not hard to see why this kind of thing is essential for testing autonomous vehicles.

Nvidia GDN, the portal to the omniverse

Jensen talks about the three types of hardware that power Omniverse -- RTX computers for creatives, OVX servers, and the Nvidia GDN (graphics delivery network). Jensen is contrasting the GDN to a CDN (content delivery network), speaking about how it empowers graphics to be sent all around the world without the need for local computing. Omniverse Cloud is the suite of applications, or an "infrastructure as a service," as Jensen calls. Omniverse Cloud was announced earlier this year, but Jensen says they're available on AWS today.

Using digital twins for manufacturing and robotics

Jensen has introduced a few different partners, including Lowe's and Amazon Robotics, to show how the use of digital twins built on the Omniverse will continue to be important in the future. He's made the point that no physical products that runs on software can be released to the public without having that product be fully tested on its digital twin in 3D simulation.

Where are the specs?

Jensen has already moved on to Omniverse, but I'm sure most PC gamers are skeptical of how quickly Jensen moved over the three new GPUs that were announced. The above slide is the only technical specs offered for the RTX 3090 Ti during the presentation, but the full specs have been posted on Nvidia's website: https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/graphics-cards/40-series/rtx-4090/

The metaverse, the "3D internet"

Jensen has moved on to Omniverse and the metaverse, which he calls "the 3D internet." Everyone seems to have a different definition of what the metaverse really is, but I can see why Nvidia wants to spin it that way.

Jensen's talking about updates to Omniverse and the VFX pipeline. "Omniverse connects 3D worlds," he says.

The RTX 4090 and 4080 is official!

Jensen has shown some very minor specs for these first new Ada Lovelace chips. For rasterized games, Jensen says it's up to 2x faster than the previous generation. For ray traced games, it's over 4x faster. Jensen is talking about overclocking Ada Lovelace GPUs, as well as the power efficiency, though he hasn't gotten into the details.

He says the RTX 4090 is 2x faster in Microsoft Flight Simulator and 3x faster in Portal RTX than the RTX 3090 Ti.

The RTX 4090 is available on October 12 at $1,599. The RTX 4080 will be $1,199 for the 16GB model and $900 for the 12GB model.

Nvidia shows a demo of Microsoft Flight Simulator, a traditionally CPU-limited game, boosting frame rates in the scene from 66 fps to 135 fps.

Nvidia has also announced Portal RTX, reimagined now with DLSS 3 and ray tracing.

DLSS 3 officially announced

Jensen is talking about 3rd-gen RTX, including DLSS 3. The difference in this latest generation? "A revolution in neural rendering," as it says. DLSS 3 predicts entirely new frames, not just pixels. Jensen says it's four times faster than traditional performance. He even says it benefits CPU-limited games this time around.

Nvidia announces Ada Lovelace

"Today, we're announcing Ada Lovelace," Jensen proudly says. This is the "one GPU" that was powering the toy racing car scene we just saw. Nvidia says it's worked close with TSMC for Ada Lovelace, designing the 4N process made for GPUs.

This prerecorded presentation just doesn't have the quirky weirdness that use to come with live Nvidia events in the past. But this is the world we live in now, unfortunately.

Jensen takes the virtual stage

Jensen has donned his iconic leather jacket and beamed into a virtual space to start off GTC. He's giving an overview of the keynote, talking about how it will touch on both new RTX products. He's already moved on to Omniverse Cloud, showing how much of the focus of today's show may be away from PC hardware.

"Future games will be simulations," he says, showing off a impressive, lifelike 3D scene involving some toy cars racing around a bedroom.

Nvidia's livestream is started up. Here's the description from its YouTube stream: "PC enthusiasts, don’t miss the GeForce Beyond special broadcast. Learn about the latest breakthroughs in gaming, creating, and graphics technology -- from NVIDIA founder and CEO Jensen Huang in the opening of his GTC keynote on Sept 20 at 8 a.m. Pacific time (UTC-7)." The big question remains: How many GPUs from the RTX 40-series will Nvidia actually announce? We'll have to wait and see.

This is a breaking story. Once the keynote begins, this page will continue to be updated live as more announcements and updates roll in from the event.
