The existence of an RTX 4090 with a dual 12+4 pin PCIe Gen 5 connector is no secret. In addition, some RTX 3090 Ti models already have it integrated to be able to reach higher clock speeds than the standard version. The fact is that the difference in power or consumption gives enough margin to justify a superior model. Is NVIDIA preparing a GeForce RTX 4090Ti or even a RTX TITAN Ada for the launch of its next graphics cards?
When NVIDIA launched the RTX 3090 it was very clear to many of us that it was a camouflaged TITAN under another name, however, the fact that it didn’t use the full version of the GA102 chip made us suspect a more powerful version. The other clue was that it wasn’t using all the power from the power connector. That is to say, the existence of an RTX 3090 Ti was written in bright letters before all eyes. So it was no secret that he could possibly exist.
What is the probability of seeing an RTX 4090 Ti?
Several pieces of information indicate that NVIDIA could repeat the same gesture as with the RTX 30. The first and most obvious are the clues to what would be the maximum configuration that the architecture can have:
- Dual 12+4 pin PCIe Gen 5 connectorconsumption close to 900W.
- Use of memory chips GDDR6X at 24Gbps in clamshell mode for 48 GB memory on the card.
- Bus the 384 bits with video memory
- AD102 chip in its full configuration.
While if we talk about the other specifications, the rumor also tells us about some that are a little below:
- Single PCIe Gen 5 12+4 pin connectorconsumption close to 600W.
- 24 GB by heart 21 Gbps GDDR6X.
- The bus is also 384 bit.
- AD102 chipbut it is not known whether in its full configuration.
One thing we’ve seen in all the RTX 40 controversy since the leak was the speculation that the AD103 would be the RTX 4080 chip and the AD102 the RTX 4090 chip. What we do know is that this is the AD102 chip that NVIDIA already has ready and with which it manufactures the first graphics cards. Since not all chips come out of the same wafer and are often cataloged in different products for this reason, this brings us to a clear conclusion. Not only the RTX 4090 will be equipped with such a chip.
We can see an RTX TITAN Ada
If what the rumors say is true, then eThe RTX 4090’s AD102 chip will deliver twice the power of the standard RTX 3090, then we have to assume it must offer more horsepower value per dollar. Assuming the current-gen card was released nearly two years ago for a price of $1,549, then the RTX 4090 should logically be priced below $3,000. Of course, above the price of the 3090 Ti, which is $2,249.
So NVIDIA’s top of the line for the next generation it could be placed in the 3000$ easily. A price that puts it outside of the general gaming market and more akin to a professional graphics card. Well, the logic is to think that the 3090 Ti have a very short life in stores, that they see and do not see and are quickly replaced by the top model. Although for that price, we don’t even think NVIDIA has any justification for selling it even as the RTX 4090 Ti. Can we see a RTX TITAN Ada? Who knows, it’s still a possibility and it would make sense.
And what about game architectures? Well, if we think about it, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see an RTX 4090 based on the new card and with an 600W mid TGP then a 450W RTX 4080. Both with the same chip, but with different configurations in terms of number of SMs and who knows if with the shortened memory bus. Rumors in the second case speak of a 126 SM configuration.
