NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 Ti & RTX 4090 graphics card renders indicate 3-slot Founders Edition coolers for next-gen BFGPUs

The alleged renders of NVIDIA’s next-gen “Ada Lovelace” BFGPUs, the GeForce RTX 4090 Ti and RTX 4090, have been revealed by Moore’s Law is Dead. The renders show the updated Founders Edition coolers used by the flagship AD102 GPUs.

Alleged renderings of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 Ti & RTX 4090 graphics card indicate BFGPU coolers with 3 slots

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 Ti graphics card cooler was reportedly leaked a while ago. The very compelling photos may have given us our first glimpse of the updated but similar Founders Edition coolers that would be used by the next-gen Ada Lovelace-powered BFGPUs. Now MLID has a new set of renderings for the same AD102 cards at different angles. The renderings were created using information the insider gathered through their sources.

So let’s start with the details: NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 4090 Ti and RTX 4090 are going to be some insanely power-hungry designs, with TGP values ​​ranging from 450 to 600W. Based on the previous leaks and recent rumours 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 is said to have either 3 or 3.5 slots and carry more fins and more heatsink area. Will that be enough to keep next-gen GPUs in check?

Well, you can check out the existing Founders Edition cooler for RTX 3090 and RTX 3090 Ti graphics cards. Both share the same cooler, although the latter boosts TGP values ​​by almost 30% (350W vs. 450W). Despite this, the same cooler managed to keep the 3090 Ti cooler and hit its clock targets without having 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 chassis would certainly be enough for up to 600W cards.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090, RTX 4080, RTX 4070 specs updated again: AD102 GPU with 16384 cores, AD103 with 10240 cores & AD104 with 7168 cores

Other things about the card, like the dual-flow-through fan design, remain the same, while the logos on the cover light up with LED lighting. One thing is for sure, you would need plenty of chassis space to house these next-gen BFGPUs like the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 Ti and RTX 4090. Plus, you would also need to invest in a very solid power supply with a rating of at least 1200W (or more). The next-gen GeForce RTX 40 flagship is expected to launch in October, with the rest of the line to follow in the coming months. More information about the cards can be found here.
