Information about the unusually high “appetites” of top-end video cards with the Ada Lovelace architecture has repeatedly surfaced on the Web. And although the passport power consumption of the flagship GeForce RTX 4090 is at the 450-watt mark, unofficial sources attributed Nvidia with the development of a 900-watt “monster”. Judging by the latest information, work in this direction was indeed carried out.
One of the users of the Chinese forum Chiphell posted a photo of the cooling system for the GeForce RTX video card, which must cope with the dissipation of 900 watts of thermal power. The design clearly shows the features of the Founders Edition models, and a device with such a cooler would occupy four expansion slots
It’s fair to say that Nvidia may still release a conditional GeForce RTX 4090 Ti. The AD102 GPU physically contains 18,432 CUDA cores, 576 Gen 4 Tensor Cores, 144 Gen 3 RT cores, and a 384-bit memory interface. At the same time, the GeForce RTX 4090 uses a stripped-down die with 16,384 CUDA cores, 512 Tensor cores, and 128 RT cores.
