Nvidia has recently introduced a new range of graphics cards. These cards have benefited from a variety of artificial intelligence-based scaling technologies and have defined new levels of superior productivity. There are discussions regarding the definition of the position of the new RTX 40 series cards by Nvidia. However, as usual, some of the potential performance gains of this family are still tantalizing.
Users who want to use these higher-end graphics cards in their external rig and want to know the remaining physical space after installing these parts; They should know that RTX 4090 is obviously a powerful graphics card with a large size.
The Okami Games Twitter account and several other news sources have claimed that the RTX 4090 is one of the best GPUs offered by Nvidia in the current era, and is actually larger than Microsoft’s Xbox S-series console.
This Twitter user has placed them next to each other in order to quickly compare the graphics card size of Nvidia RTX 4090 and Xbox S series. As you can see in the picture below; Nvidia’s new graphics card has a larger size compared to Microsoft’s game console.
Of course, the RTX 4090 is a giant compared to the Xbox S series. Therefore, this issue is a sign of the great achievement of Microsoft’s engineering team, who have managed to produce a complete game console equipped with 1080p graphic display capability with a speed of 120 frames per second in a relatively small product.
Xbox S series has dimensions equal to 27.5 x 15.1 x 6.5 cm and a volume of 2699.125 cubic cm. In contrast, the dimensions of the Nvidia RTX 4090 graphics card are 33.6 x 14 x 6.1 mm and its volume is 2869.44 cubic centimeters. Nvidia RTX 4090 is a powerful futuristic product that can easily process 4K resolution at 100 frames per second and above. This graphics card is probably one of the candidates for gaming with 8K resolution in the future.
Of course, buying such a powerful product will require a huge cost. The company’s suggested retail pricing for this advanced graphics card is $1,600. By allocating such a budget, users will be able to purchase 5 Xbox S series consoles (with a retail price of $300) and the remaining amount can be used to purchase some Xbox accessories.
The Xbox S series initially had a rather disappointing start; But as more developers came to grips with the console’s nuances and limitations, more games were optimized for 1080p resolution at 60fps, or even 120fps in some cases. This achievement is due to the use of a more modern CPU compared to the previous generation Xbox One console.
In terms of console gaming performance, Xbox Series X still holds the top position and supports 4K resolution at 60 frames per second as standard. Undoubtedly, in the coming weeks, the visual quality and gaming performance for the new RTX 40 series graphics cards will be determined through benchmark tests. However, the astronomical pricing of the RTX 4090 graphics card is one of the key reasons why users hesitate to buy this product.
