NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 Ti and RTX 4090 graphics cards point to 3-slot Founders Edition cooler for next-gen BFGPUs

Purported 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 showcase the updated Founders Edition coolers that will be used by the AD102 flagship GPUs.

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

So, starting with the specifics, NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 4090 Ti and RTX 4090 are going to be incredibly power-hungry designs with TGP ratings of 450-600W. Based on previous leaks and recent rumors from Kopite7kimi, it looks like the GeForce RTX 40 series will use similar coolers to those used by the existing RTX 30 series, but with some internal changes. The FE cooler for the RTX 4090 Ti and RTX 4090 would be between 3 or 3.5 slots and will feature more fins and more heatsink surface area. Will this be enough to control next-gen GPUs?

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 bumping up the TGP numbers by almost 30% (350W versus 450W). Despite this, the same cooler managed to keep the 3090 Ti cooler and hit its clock targets without the need to change the heatsink design or the fan speed of the card itself. So while the existing Founders Edition design can easily handle 450W TGP cards, an updated version with more surface area in a slightly thicker case would surely be sufficient for cards up to 600 Watt.

Updated NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090, RTX 4080, RTX 4070 specs: AD102 GPU with 16384 cores, AD103 with 10240 cores and AD104 with 7168 cores

Other elements of the board, such as the dual-flow fan design, will remain the same while the logos on the shroud will light up with LED lighting. One thing is for sure, you would need a lot of space in the chassis to accommodate these next-gen BFGPUs such as the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 Ti and RTX 4090. Additionally, you will also need to invest in a very solid PSU rated at less than 1200W (or more). The next-gen GeForce RTX 40 flagship is set to launch in October, with the rest of the lineup to follow in the coming months. You can check out more information about the cards here.
