NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 Founders Edition Review & Benchmarks: Gaming, Power, & Thermals

Sponsor: Buy the be quiet! Silent Wings 4 Pro fans on Amazon
Our review of the NVIDIA RTX 4090 Founders Edition video card tests the new GPU vs. the RTX 3090 Ti, RX 6950 XT, RTX 3090, RTX 2080 Ti, and more. This $1600 MSRP video card has a release date of October 12, 2022, and has mostly been in rumors for power consumption, transient spikes and power supply choice, and thermals. Now, we have all those benchmarks and gaming (rasterization) and ray tracing GPU testing, including DLSS & FSR benchmarks with ray tracing. The RTX 4090 is a complicated card to test given its feature set — especially because DLSS3 doesn’t really have much of an existence yet.
