Awhile again, across the launch of the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti, Mr. Wallossek over at Igor’s Lab acknowledged that he anticipated the boards for the RTX 3090 Ti to be re-used for the next-generation GeForce RTX 4090. Other of us stated that was not the case, however we did not have any affirmation on the matter till now.

The new data comes from the identical source. He was given {a photograph} of a pre-production board for the GeForce RTX 4090, which is anticipated to launch in August. He declined to publish the {photograph} citing anonymity considerations for his source, however he did publish a modified type of the picture overlaid together with his predictions for the cardboard, primarily based on the RTX 3090 Ti’s PCB. We’ll reproduce it beneath:

Looking over the structure, it truly is extraordinarily much like the RTX 3090 Ti’s board. The general configuration of energy supply and reminiscence elements is almost similar. The NVLink connector on the RTX 3090 Ti carries over to the RTX 4090 PCB, and the quartet of show outputs appears to be the identical, too. In the highest right of the diagram we see the 16-pin energy connector, which needs to be the ultimate 12VHPWR plug able to carrying 600 watts.

Other leakers have speculated on the existence of a GeForce RTX 4000-series card with an influence spec even increased than 600 watts, however Igor says it is actually nonetheless too early to take a position on one thing like that. Still, it is all-but-given that we’ll see a card that maxes out the 12VHPWR connector, anyway. Whether that’s the GeForce RTX 4090 or a later, quicker card is anybody’s guess.

Igor additionally goes on to notice that he is aware of “reliably” that the add-in card distributors shouldn’t have Ada Lovelace silicon but. If his data is correct—and we’ve got little purpose to doubt him—he says that the entire testing being completed thus far continues to be utilizing GA102 silicon. He supplies a chart that purports to indicate the levels of manufacturing a GeForce GPU, and signifies that we’re unlikely to see any actual leaks till the center of July on the earliest.
