NVIDIA RTX 40 Rumored To Reach 800W On Desktop And 175W On Laptops

Those laptops based on the NVIDIA RTX 40 have power limits which are almost similar to those on the current generation. Kopite7kimi has recently revealed that the AD103 which is the flagship mobile part will feature a TGP of 175W. This is the same TGP which is generated by the existing GA103 which launched at the start of this year. You might find it interesting to learn that this same max TGP is going to apply to the AD104 GPU, increasing by only 10W as compared to the GA104 models.

Kopite7kimi further goes on to claim that AD102’s power limit is going to be 800W. They are the same people who previously leaked that an SKU with a 900W power was currently being validated by NVIDIA. This particular SKU would likely come with an even higher TGP. But only one of these rumors could be true.

Let’s look at what the actual difference is between the power limit and the TDP of the actual GeForce SKU. The power limit is higher by locking overclocking and reaches a higher value. The TDP on the other hand is almost certainly lower. This means that the listed power limits don’t necessarily apply to the TDP of RTX 4090/4080/4070 and 4060 series.

These could rather limit the power which the board partners decide to apply and most probably by manual overclocking.

Talking about power limits, the TDP is likely to remain higher for almost all of the RTX 40 SKUs. It is yet to be clarified if whether or not NVIDIA is planning to release all the RTX 40 cards equipped with the new PCIe Gen5 power connector which alone gives a power boost of up to 600W.
