The first photos of a custom GeForce RTX 40 Series graphics card from ZOTAC GAMING have leaked courtesy of a user over at China’s Baidu forums, revealing what appears to be a relatively big graphics card with a triple-fan setup and triple-slot (or even larger) design. One image, which clearly shows its packaging, suggests that we are looking at the ZOTAC GAMING GeForce RTX 4090 AMP Extreme AIRO.

From a VideoCardz report:

The RTX 4090 from ZOTAC is a triple-fan and at least triple-slot design. It is a truly massive graphics card for the new RTX 40 series, with the cooler exceeding the length of the PCB by at least a third.

Unfortunately, there is no clear sign on the GPU section itself, or the power connectors, but there is clearly enough room to fit two 12VHPWR connectors (16-pin PCIe Gen5). What is also confirmed is the new SKU logo with NVIDIA’s updated font.

Ongoing rumors suggest that the GeForce RTX 4090 will leverage the AD102 GPU and feature as many as 16,384 CUDA cores. It is also expected to pack 24 GB of GDD6X memory and carry a TDP specification of 450 watts.

NVIDIA is expected to announce the GeForce RTX 40 Series at its upcoming GeForce Beyond broadcast, which is set for next Tuesday, September 20, during GTC.

  1. I'm looking at retiring in the next 8-15 years -- will I be able to afford the power bill to keep gaming then?
    That's a legit question.

    I recently installed a Sense in my house - partially because I was curious, partially because my electric bills are through the freakin' roof (thank you California and PG&E).

    My computers (and associated electronics) are fully 30% of my electric consumption. I don't run air conditioning, I don't have electric heat or hot water. My biggest electrical load, by far, are the computers in my house. I do not mine cryptocurrency, I do not run DG projects. The computers do usually stay on, but are set to sleep fairly aggressively, and sleep when not in use.

    I do have 4 full gaming rigs (my own, wife, and son, plus one older unit that the son uses when he has friends over), 2 laptops, 3 consoles, 1 NAS, a few small gigabit switches here and there, and Starlink isn't exactly dainty on power. That all adds up, especially when you have all of that on UPSes, those pull power too.

    Now, I have an unusually high amount of computer equipment from a typical household (although compared to this community - not so much), but none of it gets used in an usual manner - gaming, browsing, office/school work, streaming content - that's about it. No external servers running 24/7, the NAS does stays on 24/7 as it's running security camera software but that's only active at night so it mostly sleeps during the day, no cryptomining, no Seti@Home running.

    My current gaming computers - no overlocks to speak off, decent equipment (mostly Ryzen 5000 series, mid-range GPUs for the most part) all run between 400-600W at full tilt, but they rarely run at full tilt (apart from Sense, my UPSes have power displays on them).

    It just adds up. PG&E rates just went up 20% last February for ... "reasons". And are slated to do it again next year. And all they do is show how you are spending more money (but not that you are actually using equal or less electricity) and tell you to conserve conserve conserve --- oh, and convert all your appliances and vehicles over to electric while you are at it, because somehow it's better for the environment -- probably because you won't be able to afford to run all that electric equipment.

    What a crock of crap. I hate my utility company with a passion. And yes, power draw does make me consider what I will put in my next computer, just because of what I've seen with my Sense unit running lately.

    I'm actually more concerned with heat output then power draw though one does not exclude the other, on the contrary

    Honesty.. put in Solar with a battery backup and make sure you have the ability to run when the power is off. Generic solar install's do NOT do that. But do those things... and if you want to double down get yourself a nice powerful generator that runs on propane and a big full propane tank. You'll be able to run for weeks with no external power in the event of an emergency. It'll cost you a pretty penny no lie but the long term savings and peace of mind in what I consider to be an unstable power future... it's worth while.
