Nvidia’s monster RTX 4090 GPU is expected to arrive in mid-July


Have you finally found a gaming GPU within your budget now that sanity is returning to the market? Here’s a reason to keep waiting: the Nvidia RTX 4090 could arrive as soon as mid-July (via video cardz).

That’s the word by kopite7kimithe leaker who correctly predicted the specs of the RTX 3090 and RTX 3090, among others.

At Kopite7kimi latest predictions suggest the RTX 4090 will require up to 450W of power all alonejust like the $1,999 RTX 3090 Ti that Nvidia put on sale in March, but offers quite a few more cores than the last-gen chip: 16,128 of them paired with 24GB of 21Gb GDDR6X memory /s.

And while that’s only about 50% more cores than the RTX 3090, it’s on Nvidia’s new Ada Lovelace architecture which – again, apparently – crams in a bunch of other hardware too. , enough that some observers suspect we might see double the raw performance of this generation of hardware. Wccftech has a good breakdown of the calculations, if you’re curious, although Kimi actually suggests fewer cores and lower power (450W vs. 600W) for the RTX 4090 today than before.

Kimi has been making predictions for months, in fact, but we’re waiting for them to start firming up. As you can imagine, those proactively labeled “April Fools” didn’t give us much confidence!

And, speaking of April Fool’s Day, remember when an Nvidia fan imagined the RTX 4090 to be a 1000W card with two power cords and 48GB of memory? Last month, Kimi suggested that Nvidia is currently testing a 900W card with 48 GB of memory that requires two 16-pin power connectors To work.
