Nvidia RTX 4090’s Ridiculous Power Could Leave AMD In The Dust


Top-end cards may have 100 teraflops of power, according to rumours.

Although the predicted RTX 4000 GPUs from Nvidia are expected to be powerful, a recent leak indicates that buyers of the top-of-the-line 4090 may also want to consider making a significant cooling investment.

As of last month, the AD102 chipset should find it “simple to reach 2.8GHz” or “at least not very hard”, according to the trustworthy GPU leaker kopite7kimi.Then, last week, the leaker continued the chain with another tweet and predicted “a lot higher frequency”.

Although kopite7kimi doesn’t give any numbers, that points to a boost clock that easily surpasses the 3GHz ceiling.Additionally, according to HardwareTimes (opens in new tab), this adds up to a GPU with a staggering 100 teraflops of power.To put it into perspective, the PS5 has 10.3 teraflops, compared to the RTX 3090’s “only” 37.6.

expensive to operate and to buy

Consider the expected costs associated with such massive hardware before imagining how many frames per second you could produce with that kind of hardware on your PC.A top-of-the-line Nvidia RTX 3090 Ti will still cost you at least $2,000, so take that as a starting point even though the GPU shortages are ending.

You must also worry about ongoing expenses in addition to upfront ones.Make sure your cooling system is up to par; perhaps use a liquid cooling solution to be safe. Hitting 3GHz will produce a lot of heat.

It will also probably consume a tonne of power, and we have already prepared for a TGP of 600W for the card – a significant increase from the 350W needed by the already power-hungry RTX 3090.

Remember that this is just the theoretical GPU’s power requirement; in order to ensure that your processor, RAM, storage, and peripherals have enough headroom to run, you’ll likely need a 1,000W PSU.That is a lot to expect at a time when energy prices are rising all across the world.

All of this is merely speculation, of course, until Nvidia formally reveals new hardware.But it appears that the next generation may be out of reach for the majority of players for entirely different reasons after the current generation’s price gouging due to shortages.
