NVIDIA 4000 series: launch in September and TDP perhaps up to 850W for the newest GPUs

NVIDIA should its graphics cards GeForce RTX 4080 and RTX 4090 at the end of August, with the launch scheduled for September. This second Greymon55one of the most trusted sources on NVIDIA and AMD graphics cards, which also anticipated the powers of the new series, with high-end SKUs drawing up to 600W of power under load.

According to the leaker, in fact, the new ones NVIDIA’s Ada Lovelace GPU they should have a TDP from 450 W for the GeForce RTX 4080a 650 W TDP for the GeForce RTX 4080 Ti it’s a 850 W TDP for the GeForce RTX 4090. The rumors are not confirmed, but also the leaker kopite7kimi tweets the same information with a laconic “I heard 450/600/800 W for 80 / 80Ti / 90“, adding” but everything is not confirmed “.

A power of 600W is equivalent to a power supply of at least 1200W, 1500W to be sure. The GeForce RTX 4080 should have a 1000W power supply, but the RTX 4090/4090 will require at least a 1200W power supply. The main reason is that the Ada Lovelace microarchitecture that powers the RTX 40 series GPUs it will be a slight reorganization of Ampere on TSMC’s N5 (5nm) process. Although the fundamentals will remain the same, the overall compute density (ALU count) will increase quite significantly.

What can I say, the new ones NVIDIA GPU they really look like monsters … thirsty! What do you think about it?
