After the announcement of Nvidia GeForce 40-series graphics cards from Nvidia including GeForce RTX 4090, GeForce RTX 4080 16GB, and GeForce RTX 12GB now, it seems like Nvidia is working on a flagship variant based on Full AD102 GPU core under Ada Lovelace architecture and it will require two 16-pin power connectors for power.
Reliable industry source Moore’s Law Is Dead (MLID) recently reported that the new flagship graphics card could be from RTX Titan Series or a GeForce RTX 4090 Ti, though more chances are that it could be GeForce RTX 4090 Ti. He cited a source that has proved to be ‘more than legit’ over the last six months; MLID states that the new flagship graphics card would have a TDP of 600-700W TDP.
The source also reported that the new flagship graphics card would require a new ATX 3.0 PSU stranded as you need 12VHPWR pins to power it, though the current ATX 2.0 PSU extension cable will be required the same as for the current graphics cards expected to arrive on 12th October. So all in long, you need at least 1200W PSU to power this new beast from green camp, as some AIB partners of Nvidia are also recommending 1200W PSU for GeForce RTX 4090.
Furthermore, it is rumored that the GeForce RTX 4090 Ti would require 4-slots due to the hefty heatsink cooler, which would make even the GeForce RTX 4090 appear smaller in comparison. The source also highlighted that recent development units of new graphics cards tripped the breakers, melted power supplies, or even melted when the temperature rose higher than their bearing capacity.
The leaker adds that Nvidia might also need to wait for the availability of GDDR6 VRAM memory capable of reaching 27 Gbps or even GDDR7. GDDR7 will offer higher efficiency and incredible speed, which is crucial for GeForce RTX 4090 Ti.
Nvidia GeForce RTX 4090 Ti is expected to be released by the mid of 2023. What changes do you expect Nvidia will make in this new flagship graphics card? Do let us know in the comments section below.
