It will probably be a long time before the release of the upcoming Geforce RTX 5000 (“Blackwell”), which is also referred to as the “Ada Lovelace Next”, but the first rumors are already gaining momentum. The Chiphell forum is once again providing initial information about the possible specifications of a potential Geforce RTX 5090, which also raises new questions.
The rumors are still extremely wild
The facts are currently extremely thin and in many places the rumor mill is still busy speculating, estimating and guessing. The well-known leakers who like to share their information with the world on Current rumors sometimes clearly contradict each other.

Geforce RTX 5000 (“Blackwell”): Rumors speak of a chiplet GPU and far-reaching changes
Rumors about Nvidia’s next-gen graphics cards have been in the headlines for weeks. The Geforce RTX 5000 should rely on a chiplet GPU.
Geforce RTX 5090 with 24,576 shader units?
While rumors were previously doing the rounds that Nvidia would also rely on an MCM structure (“multi-chiplet modules”) for the top models of the next generation and would hardly increase the number of computing units, the Chiphell user now wants “Panzerlied” have learned that up to 24,576 shaders can be expected. Compared to the Geforce RTX 4090, this would be equivalent to an increase of 50 percent in CUDA cores.

50 percent more computing units, 52 percent more memory bandwidth, 78 percent more buffer storage, 15 percent more clock frequency, 70 percent more performance
With these numbers, the not unknown Chiphell user is leaning way out of the window and will have to be measured by them by 2025 at the latest. Because where this information comes from is currently completely unknown and difficult to assess. Extrapolated to the percentages, the specifications of a potential Geforce RTX 5090 would look like this.
Purely speculative specifications of a potential Geforce RTX 5090 Source: Chiphell via Videocardz Especially in light of the fact that Nvidia has not yet commented on the specifications of a potential Geforce RTX 5090 or the entire Geforce RTX 5000 Series (“Blackwell”) and is expected to announce a possible release is still more than a year in the future, the information should be treated with the greatest caution. Valid information cannot be expected until mid-2024 at the earliest.
