After a prolonged hiatus, the rumor mill has again started debating the GeForce RTX 4090 Ti. Sporting a massive quad-slot shroud similar (in design) to the RTX 4080 and RTX 4090, we can easily expect a TBP of around 500W. The shots come from VallahExperte, which you can analyze below. Compared to the RTX 3090 Ti, the 4090 Ti looks like an athlete chock-full of steroids.
The GeForce RTX logo can be seen on the side, removing the chances of it being a Titan SKU. The Ada-based Titan was allegedly canceled on account of being a power hog. Back in February, the specs of the RTX Titan and the 4090 Ti were leaked by @kopite7kimi.
The shelved GPU was supposed to leverage the fully enabled variant of the AD102 graphics die (codenamed AD102-450-A1) with 18,432 FP32 cores and 48GB of GDDR6X VRAM. The graphics core would achieve a peak boost of around 2.5GHz while the memory operated at 24Gbps.
The Ada Lovelace-based RTX Titan was said to feature a 384-bit bus backed by 96MB of L2 cache. It would have a TBP of 800W, mandating two 16-pin 12VHPWR power connectors and a top-of-the-line PCIe Gen 5 power supply.
NVIDIA is supposedly prepping the GeForce RTX 4090 Ti for a late 2023 release. It’ll feature the AD102-400-A1 die, slightly trimmed to pack 18,176 FP32 cores, 256 less than the canceled Titan. The GPU core will likely run at around 2.6-2.7GHz with a TBP of 500-600W. The memory buffer will be the same as the RTX 4090 at 24GB GDDR6X, running at 24Gbps. The entire 96MB L2 cache block will be enabled for ample on-die bandwidth.
