NVIDIA RTX 4090 Ti would have been the First Triple Fan FE Card with 22 Heat Pipes

The exterior of NVIDIA’s now-canceled GeForce RTX 4090 Ti has been spotted at a Chinese retailer (once again). This time we get a closer look at the insides of the massive heatsink, which features a quad-slot design with three fans. It would be the first Founders Edition variant to feature more than two fans, built to cool a TBP of up to 600W.

The heatsink would feature 22 heat pipes, complementing the vapor chamber found on the RTX 4090 and 4080 FE cards. The heatpipes intersect the vapor chamber along the two opposite sides. A third fan would cool the space between the two primary fans and the backside of the PCB. This would be instrumental in cooling memory packages placed on the backside.

Another unique bit about this card was that the PCB would be connected vertically with the power connector on the other side. You can be sure that this GPU was rated for at least 500W, if not the entire 600W limit supported by the 12VHPWR connector.
