Kopite7kimi has done it again. We have a few leaked specs on NVIDIA’s RTX 40 GPU. According to the leakster, the new GPU is going to be based on the AD102 model and will come with an entirely new board design. Instead of the PG139, it will feature the PG137. There are also rumors that NVIDIA is working on a new triple-fan design for the RTX 40 series, hence making it quite likely that this particular flagship model might be the first card which will come with this kind of cooling solution and also a new PCB.
Considering that the card is rumored to have a massive TDP of 800W, this new cooling solution would definitely be required. This is quite higher than the TDP of RTX 4090 at 450W. With increasing power requirements, NVIDIA might just very well launch the first reference design along with dual 16-pin power connectors.
Moving on, the SKU comes with 142 Streaming Multiprocessors which makes a total of 18176 CUDA cores, which is 11% more than the number on the RTX 4090. The RTX 40 GPU is also rumored to have a GDDR6X memory of 48 GB. At 24 Gbps, it is also faster than the memory on RTX 4090, thus enabling a massive bandwidth of 1.1 TB/s.
An interesting and important thing to note here is that the leakster hasn’t mentioned the name of the model on the card. It could very well be the new RTX 4090 Ti or even the nee TITAN model. It is also a possibility that this model may never be released, which is extremely low considering Kopite’s previous track record.
According to Kopite, NVIDIA is going to reveal the RTX 4090 soon. So far, the rumors hint towards an October launch for the RTX 4090.
