NVIDIA is preparing a new TITAN RTX graphics card that will feature a triple-fan setup, according to hardware leaker @kopite7kimi, who took to Twitter yesterday and claimed that the alleged renders of the flagship GPU that have been going around, which show it as having dual 16-pin power connectors and a quad-slot design, are “totally fake.”
“Totally fake,” @kopite7kimi stated in a tweet dated December 22 before suggesting that the TITAN RTX doesn’t look anything like that in reality, with a chief reason being that it actually has three fans.
Totally fake. The Titan doesn't look like this. It has three fans.— kopite7kimi (@kopite7kimi) December 23, 2022
The source of the renders has sworn on his life that they are genuine, but if @kopite7kimi turns out to be correct, enthusiasts can probably expect a new TITAN RTX graphics card that not only boasts extreme performance but a more unique shroud and heat sink, unlike the existing GeForce RTX 40 Series, whose Founders Editions feature a dual-fan cooling solution and look largely similar to their Ampere-based predecessors.
NVIDIA has released eight TITAN graphics cards in its history thus far, including the GTX TITAN (2013) and, most recently, the TITAN RTX, which the company launched in December 2018 for $2,499.
“NVIDIA TITAN RTX is designed for researchers, developers and creators,” reads a description for the Turing flagship with golden shroud. “It’s powered by Turing architecture, bringing 130 Tensor TFLOPs of performance, 576 tensor cores, and 24 GB of ultra-fast GDDR6 memory to your PC.”
“TITAN RTX powers AI, machine learning, and creative workflows,” NVIDIA said of the GPU.
It’s unclear how much the new TITAN RTX might cost, but NVIDIA’s current GeForce flagship, the GeForce RTX 4090, already has a starting price of $1,599.
