The alleged renders of NVIDIA’s next-gen ‘Ada Lovelace’ BFGPUs, the GeForce RTX 4090 Ti & RTX 4090 have been revealed by Moore’s law is dead. The renders show the updated Founders Edition coolers that will be used by the flagship AD102 GPUs.
The alleged renders of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 Ti & RTX 4090 graphics card point to 3-slot BFGPU coolers
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 Ti graphics card cooler was reportedly leaked a while back† The very compelling photos may have given us a first look at the updated but comparable Founders Edition coolers that would be used by the next generation of Ada Lovelace-powered BFGPUs. Now MLID has a new set of renders for the same AD102 maps at different angles. The renders were created using information the insider gathered through his sources.
So starting with the details, NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 4090 Ti and RTX 4090 will be some insanely power-hungry designs with TGP ratings ranging from 450 to 600W. Based on the past leaks and recent rumors of Kopite7kimi, it looks like the GeForce RTX 40 series will use similar coolers used by the existing RTX 30 series, but with some internal changes. The FE cooler for the RTX 4090 Ti and RTX 4090 would sit between 3 or 3.5 slots and will carry more fins and more heatsink surface. Will that be enough to keep the next-gen GPUs in check?
At least they designed a triple fan cooler for the AD102 reference board. https://t.co/vQb2KnpE4y

Not needed now.
RTX 4090 looks like an RTX 3090 Ti, RTX 4080 does too.
The RTX 4070 looks like an RTX 3070 Ti.

Well, you can look at the existing Founders Edition cooler for the RTX 3090 and RTX 3090 Ti graphics cards. Both share the same cooler, despite the latter increasing the TGP numbers by nearly 30% (350W vs. 450W). Despite this, the same cooler managed to keep the 3090 Ti cooler and meet its clocking goals without the need to change the heatsink design or the fan speeds of the card itself. So if the existing Founders Edition design can easily handle 450W TGP cards, then an updated version with more surface area in a slightly thicker package would certainly suffice for up to 600 Watt cards.
Other things about the card, such as the dual-flow fan design, remain the same, while the logos on the shroud light up with LED lighting. One thing’s for sure, you’d need a lot of chassis space to house these next-gen BFGPUs like the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 Ti & RTX 4090. In addition, you should also invest in a very solid PSU with a minimum rating of 1200W (or higher). The next-generation flagship GeForce RTX 40 is expected to launch in October, with the rest of the line to follow in the coming months. You can view more information about the cards here†
