It has been rumored that a third-party manufacturer is working on a version of the GeForce RTX 4090, and there are now images of that model online. Assuming they’re true, the card is huge, with a quad-slot design and a heatsink that goes past the PCB.
According to rumors, the latest photos from Baidu reveal the Zotac RTX 4090 AMP Extreme graphics card. It has a rethought cooler that appears to be polarizing people’s opinions; it is unquestionably distinctive.
A single 16-pin PCIe Gen 5.0 (12VPWHR) connector is present on the triple-fan card. This connector has the capacity to supply 600 watts across 12 rails, which is four times as much as an 8-pin connector can deliver.
The card also looks to utilize the brand-new font that Nvidia is rumored to be implementing for its Lovelace series of next-generation products.
Updated versions of features such as Icestorm 3.0, support for dual BIOS, Firestorm software tools, and the Spectra 2.0 RGB lighting suite are displayed on the box.
The RTX 4090 is the center of many of the speculations that circulate regarding the RTX 4000-series. A month ago, there were rumors that work had begun on it and that it would be the first Lovelace card to be released.
Synthetic benchmarks revealed last week showed the RTX 4090 performing 78% faster than the current-gen RTX 3090 Ti flagship in 3DMark Time Spy Extreme at 3.0 GHz. The same rumor indicated the card will have a default TDP of 450W, but it’s intended for 600W to 800W, which matches a previous allegation of an 800W power limit but a lower default TDP.
It has been widely speculated for some time that the RTX 4090, with its AD102 GPU, will be a monstrosity in terms of size, power, and most likely cost. It has 16,384 CUDA cores, 56% more than the RTX 3090 and 52% more than the RTX 3090 Ti.
We’ve heard it could have 24 GB of GDDR6X @21 Gbps on a 384-bit bus, for 1 TB/s of bandwidth. On September 20, we will most likely learn additional information when we get into the GTC.
