After the rumors about the TBP of the next GeForce RTX 4080, let’s go back to the topic GeForce RTX 40 Ada Lovelace for new details concerning what will be instead the next top of the line NVIDIAthe alleged (by now not so much) GeForce RTX 4090 Ti. In recent weeks, there has been no shortage of rumors about this model: we are talking about the most thrusting version of the AD102 Ada Lovelace 5nm GPU, a chip that should integrate 18,432 Cuda Core with 24 or 48GB of GDDR6X VRAM e a TBP that will start at 600 watts for the NVIDIA reference model (or Founders Edition) to reach 900/1200 watts of the most demanding custom models.
With the consumption data of the GeForce RTX 4000 now almost confirmed, GeForce RTX 4090 Ti Founders Edition should therefore arrive with 600 watts of TBP, a feature that, as you can easily guess will force NVIDIA to review the dissipation systemas happened – with excellent results – on the GeForce RTX 3000.
This peculiarity is also confirmed by the leaker’s latest tweet kopite7kimi which, referring to the NVIDIA AD102 reference board, states that the company would have already opted for a triple fan design for this GPU. At the moment there are no precise references to GeForce RTX 4090 Ti, so we cannot exclude that even the younger sister – GeForce RTX 4090 – will arrive with this type of heatsink.
Currently all the top of the range custom RTX 30 series have a triple fan design, with good results in almost all cases. This increase in dissipation requirements will obviously not lead to four-fan heatsinks (we hope), but there is no doubt that with the GeForce RTX 4000 liquid-cooled (or hybrid) models will increase, while air graphics cards will see an increase in surface of the dissipating body and of the base / heatpipe system.
