The next generation is months away, so naturally the rumors started, and this leaker speculates what Nvidia’s next flagship could be packing.
It’s hard to be a PC gamer right now. While prices for Nvidia and AMD graphics cards are dropping all the time, approaching the MSRP, if they don’t hit it, it’s been suggested that the ongoing chip shortage could continue into 2024. That means, with the generation expected later this year , the market may still be in the same turmoil as last year. However, that doesn’t stop the tech giants from launching into the next era, with speculation about what’s to come.
According to a tweet from well-known leaker kopite7kimi, identified by Tom’s Hardware, there is a possibility that Nvidia is releasing its flagship RTX 4090 GPU with 24GB of GDDR6X RAM at a memory clock of 21Gbps. This is the same as the recent RTX 3090 Ti, which is currently the most powerful graphics card on the market. The tweet also says that the RTX 4070 will have 12GB of VRAM at a clock rate of 12Gbps. Both cards will utilize the Ada Lovelace architecture.
In addition, it is also possible that the 4090 requires 600W of power. There have already been rumors that the Nvidia RTX 4090 Ti might need 900W, which would make this GPU very sizzling. The regular 4090 doesn’t look too bad in comparison, but it would still make it very hot hardware. For comparison, the aforementioned 3090 Ti requires 450W of power, and the RTX 4070 can have a TDP of 300W. Either way, Nvidia’s mainboard could usher in a stifling era for PC gamers, especially enthusiasts.
Of course, there has been no word from the green team as to whether any of this information is true. However, kopite7kimi is generally known to have a good track record, so it’s something worth keeping in mind. With AMD’s flagship RDNA 3 possibly being four times more powerful than the RX 6900 XT, and Nvidia’s robust next-gen GPU potentially being more than twice as powerful as the 3090 Ti, there will be a lot of flexibility when the next generation to arrive.
With rumors that Intel is delaying its Arc desktop graphics cards, it’s still Nvidia and AMD face off in this industry. No doubt as the weeks and months go by, there will be even more speculation as players wait to see what each company will reveal next, not to mention whether any of them will be available once they launch.
