Because the anticipated launch date for Nvidia’s first GeForce RTX 40-series graphics playing cards attracts nearer — our finest graphics playing cards listing is about to get some new entrants — new leaks reveal extra particulars concerning the newest GPUs. In the meantime, alleged photographs of Lenovo’s Legion GeForce RTX 4090 have appeared on-line, with refined pixilation hiding the mannequin quantity, however we will simply make out a well-recognized font. The RTX 40-series information is bolstered by alleged specs additionally surfacing.
All this data comes from unofficial sources, so apply your traditional does of skepticism and pull out a salt shaker. Regardless, it appears like Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 4090 is basically getting shut. We should always study extra on the GeForce Past occasion on September 20.

Lenovo’s Legion graphics boards are designed primarily with the corporate’s personal gaming PCs in thoughts, however these playing cards typically discover their solution to retail as effectively. As Lenovo appears to be on the point of roll out its Legion gaming rigs with Nvidia’s upcoming flagship, a type of programs with a purported GeForce RTX 4090 inside was pictured and people photographs had been printed by nga.178.com after which republished by @wxnod.
Primarily based on the newest leaks of Nvidia GeForce RTX 4090 specs by @kopite7kimi and VideoCardz, the board will function the AD102 graphics processor with 16,384 CUDA cores and working at as much as 2520 MHz, 24GB of 24Gbps GDDR6X reminiscence, and a 450W~660W energy consumption. Such excessive energy consumption requires a formidable cooling system, one thing that we see within the photographs of alleged GeForce RTX 4090 playing cards.
Elsewhere, there are rumblings of Nvidia releasing two variations of GeForce RTX 4080, one with 12GB and the opposite with 16GB, however we nonetheless have our doubts concerning the 12GB mannequin. Would not a card with fewer cores and fewer reminiscence and reminiscence bandwidth make extra sense as an RTX 4070?
Rumored Nvidia GeForce RTX 40-Sequence Specs
|GPU||FP32 CUDA Cores||Increase Clock||Reminiscence Configuration||Default TGP||Max TGP|
|GeForce RTX 4090||AD102||16384||2520 MHz||24GB 384-bit 21 GT/s GDDR6X||450W||660W|
|GeForce RTX 4080||AD103||9728||2505 MHz||16GB 256-bit 23 GT/s GDDR6X||340W||516W|
|GeForce RTX 4080||AD103||7680||2610 MHz||12GB 192-bit 21 GT/s GDDR6X||285W||366W|

Lenovo’s supposed Legion GeForce RTX 4090 board options the signature Legion design with straight traces and a gray aluminum shroud, coupled to a triple fan cooling system. The alleged GeForce RTX 4090 marking on board has been pixelized, although we nonetheless see that we’re coping with a ’90’ card, so we can not assure that that is certainly Nvidia’s top-of-the-range board. Nonetheless, there are different indicators that we’re coping with one thing new and never only a rehash of RTX 3090.
The 12+4-pin 12VHPWR auxiliary PCIe Gen5 energy connector implies it is a next-generation graphics card, as up to now only a few graphics playing cards with such energy plug have been launched (e.g., EVGA’s GeForce RTX 3090 Ti Kingpin, Gigabyte’s GeForce RTX 3090 Ti Gaming OC 24G, and so forth.). In the meantime, a few of Lenovo’s previous-generation graphics boards used Nvidia’s 12-pin energy connector, whereas others relied on the confirmed two 8-pin energy plug strategy.
One other factor to notice about Legion’s alleged GeForce RTX 4090 board is the shortage of NVLink connectors. Preserving in thoughts that this card is designed primarily for pre-built PCs, if Lenovo doesn’t plan to supply multi-GPU programs to avid gamers, there isn’t any want for NVLink connectors. Or maybe Nvidia is lastly taking the final step and ended SLI assist utterly with Ada? That will be an fascinating change, and we have lengthy since stopped recommending twin GPUs for avid gamers.
Different photographs printed by @wxnod depict a field of Gigabyte’s GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card with an image of the board itself on the again of the field. The cardboard appears to function a large quad-slot cooling system that’s an identical to 1 utilized by the corporate’s GeForce RTX 3090 Ti Gaming OC 24G. Whereas the package deal resembles Gigabyte’s present model, it has brand-new art work, which is perhaps a sign that that is certainly supposed for Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 4090.
