Nvidia’s next-gen flagship graphics card, the RTX 4090, is anticipated to pack some severe energy, with contemporary leaks showing concerning its specs.
In line with Twitter consumer @Greymon55, the 4090 (codenamed AD102) will likely be constructed utilizing TSMC’s 5nm course of with 18,432 CUDA cores, which is 7,936 greater than the present era RTX 3090, and a clock velocity anticipated to be round 2.3GHz to 2.5GHz.

As TweakTown stories, we’re anticipating between 85 TFLOPs and 92 TFLOPs of compute efficiency. For context, the GeForce RTX 3090 (Nvidia’s present flagship) has 35.5 TFLOPs, and whereas it is essential to notice that TFLOPs is not the be-all and end-all of efficiency, on paper these specs indicated the Lovelace flagship goes to be a beast.
In line with the ability provide specification of pcie5, the TGP vary of AD102 should be 450-650w.November 9, 2021
And a power-hungry beast at that, with early rumors of doable 450W to 500W energy necessities now having one other estimate by Greymon55 of between 450W to 650W, double the TDP of present Ampere playing cards. This might imply that the RTX 4090 would require a 1200W energy provide to run, which is a frankly alarming prospect.
Naturally, this is not sufficient to contemplate the knowledge concrete, however Greymon55 is a well-established tech leaker with a confirmed file that offers weight to the knowledge.
Nonetheless, to keep away from disappointment do not take any of the knowledge as gospel. Nvidia’s Lovelace graphics cards are anticipated to emerge at some point of 2022, maybe before the final quarter of next year rolls round.
Evaluation: Will we ever see the RTX 3090 Ti?
If nothing else, we’ll see 4090, 4080 and 4070 in 2022Q3. I do not suppose that is new data.November 8, 2021
Preliminary hypothesis concerning Nvidia’s Lovelace plans steered the brand new structure can be launched at the end of 2022, however issues have since developed and there is now hypothesis that it might seem a bit earlier than that, with a 2022 Q3 launch seeming the probably prospect.
It was anticipated that Nvidia can be releasing a suped-up RTX 3090 within the type of both an RTX 3090 Ti or 3090 Tremendous, however with such an early launch date anticipated for the subsequent era of playing cards, we might be stunned if additional additions to the present Ampere household have been made now.
It is probably that if further desktop graphics playing cards are introduced in January at CES or as late as Computex in Might then the Q3 estimation for 2022 is perhaps untimely, however we can’t know for certain till an official announcement is produced from Workforce Inexperienced.
With demand for silicon so excessive, many PC avid gamers and constructing hobbyists have been unable to safe this era of merchandise to improve their present system, so it will be fascinating to see how Nvidia has navigated the difficulties of growing a brand new product amidst the complaints of the dearth of present stock.
