We’ve heard this for quite a while now. One source claims that the RTX 4090 could come with a TGP that is 600W (Total Graphics Power ), which is the power level provided to the card).
This is yet another mind-boggling number or potential figure depending on the situation, in addition to the lengthy list of wattage figures that have been speculated on for quite a while.
Consider this to be speculation, and even though the leaker of the hardware claims this is being confirmed, it’s still speculation, given that Kopite7kimi says that they think that it’s “too early to talk about”, which means that it’s not a good idea to jump into conclusions just yet.
There was speculation earlier of the possibility of a 500W or 450W maximum capacity for power consumption of the RTX 4090, and maybe even higher, so you can add the latest 600W estimate regardless of how you slice it. This suggests that the Lovelace flagship will make more than likely to be quite heavy on the power supply of your PC. (Remember that there’s a reason that the RTX 3090 has a TGP of 350W, which puts the scale of Nvidia’s current lineup.)
In the past, we’ve heard concerning predictions about the power that Nvidia’s next-generation flagship may consume. As high as 850W or 800W, which is an entirely absurd TGP to us, and we’re not convinced that Team Green would consider going this far, even if it’s the most expensive graphics card of the “Lovelace” Generation (presumably RTX 4000 as mentioned).
In the end, there has been a lot of speculation that Nvidia is aiming for an enormous performance boost with the 4090 and a much more powerful flagship and therefore, the demand for power increasing somewhat indeed isn’t possible considering the goal.
There are some issues with massively powerful GPU. However, there are some issues with this GPU. What type of PSU do you require to run this? 1,000W or even 1,200W? What about what kind of more extraordinary is needed? What size is the card consequently? The mind is confused over the subject matter if the upper limits the rumour mill is considering are anything like the real thing.
