Since EVGA pulled out of the GPU market, no RTX 40 graphics cards powered by NVIDIA GPUs from EVGA have been made available to the public. Even though the company no longer makes new graphics cards, that doesn’t mean there weren’t test units for GPUs like Ada Lovelace.
Even before the decision to leave the GPU market was announced, EVGA stated they possessed a small number of RTX 40 GPU prototypes. JayzTwoCents appears to have been lucky enough to get one of these engineering samples, and he was able to catch this unpublished design in his current video.
The card is significantly bigger than the RTX 3090 Ti FTW, although it still features three fans. The ‘For The Win 3’ series would expand with the addition of this prototype, which would use EVGA’s ICX cooling technologies.
The card’s 16-pin power connection is a one-of-a-kind addition. This would have been an excellent option for individuals who do not have a place for the new power adaptor. Unfortunately, this approach has not been used by any other RTX 4090 on the market.
The fact that this sample is a fully operational graphics card makes it stand out. It features a real AD102 GPU and even works with EVGA Precision software that reads all sensor data. To add to the intrigue, Jay could overclock this GPU to exceed 3.0 GHz.
