The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 is rumored to consume up to 550 watts. The upcoming card is said to be based on TSMC’s 5 nm process. The card’s power needs are expected to increase by 200 watts over its predecessor.

In the past, 350W was considered to be very high. In the future, it will exceed 500W. NVIDIA’s next generation 5nm Lovelace core RTX 4090 graphics card can even reach 550W.

The GeForce RTX 40 series is expected to launch in October 2022. It was recently confirmed that NVIDIA will be using a 12-pin PCIe 5.0 power connector rated for up to 600 watts of power delivery for at least one graphics card. PCIe 5.0 is already gaining adoption with the recent launch of 12th Gen Intel Core processors and select Z690 motherboards.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
