NVIDIA's newest Turing based HPC card the RTX 4000 has arrived, with 2304 CUDA cores, 288 Tensor Cores, 36 RT Cores, and 8GB of GDDR6 on-board GPU memory. They haven't released any benchmarks as of yet but do state the new memory will offer a 40% increase in bandwidth compared to the previous P4000 and that the card can produce up to 57 TFLOPs of performance, one assumes this refers to INT8 performance.
They are showing the card off at Autodesk, if you visit they have set up a demo which uses the Enscape3D plugin to let you put on a VR headset to step inside a full-scale Autodesk Revit model and make changes in real time, which would be an interesting way to work. The card will sell for ~$900 which puts in reach of quite a few possible users and might encourage AMD to sell it's Instinct MI60 and MI50 cards for a price in that ballpark.
