New images of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 Ti, and without surprises, it continues to be confirmed that it is giant. Specifically, it is a mastodon, to the point of occupying no less than four expansion slots. Of course, it does not surprise us, since during Computex, we could see that MSI prepares its new cooling system top of the range for the GeForce RTX 4090 Ti and, in this case, we are talking about a graph that occupies no less than 4.5 expansion slots.
Clearly, this graph may be a new NVIDIA TITAN RTX with Ada architecture, but knowing that We won’t have an RTX 5090 until 2024, it makes sense an RTX 4090 Ti to offer a new top-of-the-range GPU until said year. Obviously, NVIDIA only has to squeeze the silicon to the maximum, add more memory, and increase the frequencies, to increase performance. In other words, energy consumption increases and, obviously, a new refrigeration system capable of dealing with this problem is required.
This is how imposing the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 Ti Founders Edition is
As can be seen (via Wccftech), the rest of the graphics cards look like toys. Of course, if regarding length, the graph will be a little shorter, but thicker. With that, it will try to offer greater compatibility in most chassis, of course, that are not Micro-ATX or Mini-ITX.
Specifically, in a chassis of this type it will be very difficult to find compatible chassis due to at 4 or 4.5 expansion slots necessary. For reference, the GeForce RTX 4090 Founders Edition occupies three expansion slots.
Of course, it should also be mentioned that we are only looking at the cooling system. That is why we find empty holes on the PCB or where the video connections should go. Perhaps most interesting of all, is that now it has been seen because it is being sold in China. Specifically, whoever has this refrigeration system asks for 888,888 RMB, which in exchange translates into €112,517.
Obviously, crazy, so he will not seek to sell it, but to show it off. at the moment of truth It’s just a cooling system. and it has no value. Unless finally no GPU comes out that uses it, in the best of cases, if this were the case, its value would be very far from what it estimates. After all, at the collector level, it is not interesting to pay for the dissipation of an RTX 4090 Ti Founders Edition.
What can we expect from a 4090 Ti at the performance level?
Using the full silicon, the NVIDIA AD102, would give the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 Ti 11% more CUDA cores. Specifically, we are talking about 18,176 CUDA Cores compared to the 16,384 CUDA Cores of the RTX 4090. The L2 cache would also increase up to 96 MB capacity (+33%; What do you mean 33?), and maybe I would keep the same 24GB of GDDR6X memory of his little sister.
Evidently, frequencies unknown and if NVIDIA would increase the bandwidth. Obviously, you have to be sensible, and NVIDIA will not increase the bandwidth. At best, we could see slightly faster memory. It is not expected to happen either, so all the improvement will be tied to the chip. The GeForce RTX 4090 has a TDP of 450Wso it will be interesting how much will the TDP increase with the GeForce RTX 4090 Ti.
