The RTX 4-series from Nvidia, which includes the $1,599 flagship RTX 4090 and the somewhat more inexpensive 4080, is the company's newest line of graphics cards.

The 4-series is a major improvement over the 3-series, which dominated the crypto mining sector

and a few other computation-intensive applications and was thus frequently purchased in large quantities by bots and other dubious enterprises.

"

This had the consequence of effectively eliminating availability and driving up the cost of the potent cards.

It was a chance that Nvidia's steadfast competitor AMD seized, highlighting pricing, efficiency (more power for your dollar), and the availability of their GPUs.

However, Nvidia is back and going after the big fish with its next-gen GPUs, which are now without a doubt by far the most potent ones available.

Although AMD will soon make its next-generation appearance, Nvidia often retains the title of "fastest card, but at what cost?"

The GPU has evolved from a device for maintaining high frame rates in computer games to a processing powerhouse for well-known, computation-intensive applications that consume CPUs and earlier GPUs.
