New Nvidia RTX 4090 GPU

New Nvidia RTX 4090 GPU have been discovered in HWiNFO, implying that the company’s next-generation products, which are expected later this year, are getting closer to release (and confirming another recent rumor in that regard – more on that later).

 

According to Tom’s Hardware, a beta version of system monitoring utility HWiNFO (v7.21, build 4725) mentions support for five Lovelace GPUs (along with a couple of Hopper, Pro-targeted models, and possibly future Blackwell cards – again, not consumer graphics products).

The following GPUs are listed for Lovelace, which should be the RTX 4000 series unless Nvidia makes a radical departure from its current naming convention: AD102, AD103, AD104, AD106, and AD107.

According to the current rumor, AD102 will power Nvidia’s RTX 4090 flagship and RTX 4080 (and Ti), with AD103 powering the RTX 4070 and AD104 powering the mid-range products, and the chips below that powering the budget cards.

New Nvidia RTX 4090 GPU rumor points to another unbelievable power draw

Another rumor claims that Nvidia’s RTX 4090, or whatever the next-gen flagship will be called, will be a very power-hungry graphics card.

Yes, we’ve been hearing this for a while, but according to well-known leaker Kopite7kimi, one of their sources claims that the RTX 4090 could have a TGP of 600W (Total Graphics Power, which is the maximum power delivered to the card).

The xx90 with 600W TGP has been confirmed, according to someone. I believe it is too early to discuss it. 12th of March, 2022

That’s yet another mind-boggling figure – or potential figure, as the case may be – to add to a long list of wattage ratings that have been theorized for a long time.

Of course, even though the hardware leaker says it’s ‘confirmed,’ this is still just a rumor, as Kopite7kimi adds that it’s “too early to talk about” – meaning we shouldn’t be jumping to conclusions just yet.

Analysis: Nvidia Lovelace might beat AMD RDNA 3 to the punch?

This sighting of Lovelace graphics cards, as we mentioned at the outset, could indicate that we’re getting closer to their release. This possibility is exciting because it aligns with another rumor that surfaced a few days ago, namely that Nvidia could be on track to beat AMD with the release of its next-generation GPUs.

 

In other words, Team Green appears to have a leg up on the competition with RTX 4000 products hitting shelves ahead of RX 7000 (RDNA 3) cards, and the addition of GPU support within this hardware utility lends credence to that theory.

That said, this is obviously another shaky strand of speculation, and we shouldn’t get too excited about it. Another possibility is that HWiNFO is simply using these Lovelace GPUs as placeholders based on the recent information leaked via the Nvidia hack (which is certainly plausible).

 

Both Nvidia and AMD’s next-gen families are expected to achieve big things, but the latest we’ve heard is that Team Red may have really nailed a double blow in terms of not just major performance gains, but also capacious strides on the efficiency front (as always, take it with a grain of salt – though better efficiency from AMD wouldn’t be a surprise, of course).

 

Analysis: Massive performance boost, but with major power caveats?

In fact, we’ve heard some even scarier predictions about Nvidia’s next-gen flagship’s power consumption in the past. Even with the top-end super-pricey graphics card for the ‘Lovelace’ generation, 800W or 850W seems like a ridiculous TGP to us, and we’re not buying that. Team Green would consider going that far (presumably RTX 4000 as mentioned).

Earlier rumors suggested that the RTX 4090 would have a maximum power draw of 450W or 500W, or even more, so when you add in this latest 600W prediction, it appears that the Lovelace flagship will be quite taxing on your PC’s power supply, whichever way you slice it. (To put things in context with Nvidia’s current lineup, the RTX 3090 has a TGP of 350W.)

(To put things in context with Nvidia’s current lineup, the RTX 3090 has a TGP of 350W.)

You could argue that the RTX 4090 is a ridiculously powerful and likely prohibitively expensive graphics card that the average consumer will never touch, and you’d be correct. This card, like the 3090, is not intended for the general computing public.

Rumors

But the point is that when it comes to the RTX 4080 – rumors have suggested this as well (such as 450W for the 4080) – and possibly even lower graphics cards that more mainstream consumers will want to buy, power requirements will presumably be ramped up in line.

It’s not out of the realm of possibility that those customers will run into issues due to their power supply failing (upgrading a power supply isn’t just more expensive, it’s also a pain). That’s before we even consider thorny issues like the modern world’s soaring energy costs and the need to be more eco-friendly with resource usage.

While we shouldn’t get too excited about this early speculation, given the weight of rumors indicating that Nvidia may be ramping up its power usage, we can’t help but be concerned about the ramifications as outlined.
