NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 Could Very Well Be a 600-Watt Graphics Card


Throw out those space heaters, folks. Kopite7kimi, one of the most legitimate leakers in the hardware space, has heard from a source that NVIDIA’s upcoming GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card will, as some previous rumors had already suggested, carry a ridiculous TGP rating of 600 watts. This specification is a 250-watt increase over the GeForce RTX 3090, a figure that indicates the Lovelace-based flagship will utilize the full potential of the new PCIe Gen 5 (12VHPWR) power connector. Imagine the coil whine on some of these things.

Another habitual leaker, Greymon55, has chimed in with the suggestion that the Titanium version of the GeForce RTX 4090 could consume up to 800 watts of power. Now that’s just insane.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090-class GPU with 600W TGP has reportedly been confirmed (VideoCardz)

  • The latest tweet from a reliable NVIDIA leaker kopite7kimi appears to confirm that next-gen XX90 class GPU is to feature TGP (total graphics power) of 600W.
  • A 600W power limit will surely be a challenge for board partners, however it won’t be as complicated as some users might think. There are many air-cooled models with max TGP already reaching as high as 480W, such as ROG STRIX 3090 from ASUS.
  • Previous reports indicated that NVIDIA “Ada” GA102 GPU is targeting a TGP of 450W, 650W and even 850W. The last number specifically might be overestimated or simply refers to some type of special edition graphics card that we know nothing about yet.
