Yesterday, Nvidia announced its latest RTX 40-series graphics cards, the GeForce RTX 4090 and RTX 4080. Rumors have been circulating for months about the release of the flagship GPUs, which feature Nvidia’s new “Ada Lovelace” architecture, named after the mathematician who worked on Charles Babbage’s early computer, named the Analytical Engine.

History lessons aside, the new cards use the third-generation DLSS, with the RTX 4090 packed with 24GB of G6X RAM, which Nvidia claims will make it two to four times faster than the outgoing RTX 3090 Ti — though you’ll have to pay $1,599 to experience the flagship’s raw power when it launches on October 12th.

The RTX 4080 was announced simultaneously, with two separate memory configurations of 12GB and 16GB. The RTX 4080 is also claimed to be two to four times faster than the outgoing RTX 3080 Ti model. No release date has been given for the RTX 4080 GPUs, though Nvidia says the cards will be released in November, with a retail price of $899 for the 12GB model and $1,199 for the 16GB variant.

The RTX launch also showed off Nvidia’s Founders Edition graphics cards, which are limited edition in-house models released before hardware partners such as Asus, Colorful, Gainward, Galaxy, Gigabyte, INNO3D, MSI, Palit, PNY, and Zotac use the technology in their own models.

“For our new GeForce RTX 40 Series Founders Edition graphics cards, we’ve further optimized the Dual Axial Flow Through system, increasing fan sizes and fin volume by 10%, and upgrading to a 23-phase power supply. Memory temperatures are reduced, and the new, substantially more powerful Ada GPUs are kept cool in ventilated cases, giving gamers excellent overclocking headroom,” says Andrew Burnes, technical marketer at Nvidia.

Although the 40-series cards are now official and about to launch, RTX 30-series GPUs are likely to be around for some time. Earlier this year, Nvidia was forced to adjust pricing on many of its cards due to excess stock, leading to RTX 30-series cards appearing at their correct retail prices, despite several years of price hikes by traders.

The launch of RTX 40-series GPUs comes at a tough time for Nvidia and the graphics card market in general. Demand has fallen since the recent crypto crash, and the Ethereum merge. Combine this with soaring electricity prices, and the future looks uncertain for the market as a whole, despite the considerable power boost that cards like the RTX 4090 promise.

LandVault, the world’s largest metaverse developer, will expand operations to Dubai later this month as part of an ongoing strategy to boost its presence in the MENA region. The company aims to help local businesses gain a foothold in the expanding web 3.0 universe and sees exciting opportunities to bolster its client portfolio.

So far, metaverse developer LandVault has lived up to its name, creating and curating over 100 square feet of virtual space for a diverse range of organizations, including the nearby Yas Marina Circuit, Aldar, Mastercard, Standard Chartered, World of Women, Hershey’s, and many more.

The Dubai government’s Metaverse Strategy is one of the key reasons LandVault has been inspired to move to the region, as leaders plan to transform the Emirate into one of the world’s top 10 metaverse economies by 2030. Eventually, it’s hoped that in excess of 1,000 companies in the blockchain and web 3.0 spaces will be inspired to set up entities in the region, creating around 40,000 new jobs in the process.

“We are excited to open our office in Dubai and to be a part of the vibrant tech community in the UAE.

We are also excited about the potential for the metaverse in the real estate industry in the UAE. We look forward to working with developers and real estate companies to showcase their properties in a new and innovative way,” says Sam Huber, CEO of LandVault.

Alongside developing the metaverse from its new Dubai office, LandVault will also deploy its technology to assist the UAE’s real estate sector. Developers will soon be able to showcase their projects in a way that was never previously possible, reaching a much wider audience with immersive and interactive property tours and even virtual showrooms.
