Nvidia tests an insane AD102 GPU

The well-known leaker kopite7kimi has recently been providing numerous rumors regarding Nvidia's future “Ada Lovelace” cards. After unveiling the alleged specs and reporting that the RTX 4000 may not have PCIe 5.0 support, he recently tweeted that Nvidia is testing a new 900W Ada AD102 GPU powered by two 16-pin connectors.

In the tweet kopite7kimi also provides more details about this card, talking about 48 GB of GDDR6X memory with a speed of 24 Gbps. So far leaked sources have often indicated that the flagship of Nvidia's new series of cards, the RTX 4090, would have a 600 W TGP. It is therefore likely that the GPU to which the insider refers is an even superior model such as the RTX 4090 Ti, which could be released at a later time, or a parallel project that may never see the light, as pointed out in the tweet. . However, it is not excluded that it may also be the new TITAN RTX.

In fact, there is another full-fat AD102 SKU with 900W TGP, 48G 24Gbps GDDR6X, 2 * 16pin and higher frequency.

But no one knows whether it will become an actual product. Because the test board of AD102 has more than two 16pin connectors, so everything is possible.

Apparently Nvidia has not yet started testing these cards but should begin soon, according to the insider.| ); }

NVIDIA testing insane next-gen AD102 GPU: freaking 900W power!!!

NVIDIA is reportedly testing a new board with its new AD102 GPU, powered by the new Ada Lovelace GPU architecture, and this one is a freaking monster.

The new AD102-powered test board rumor is coming from leaker 'kopite7kimi' who said that 'there is another full-fat AD102 SKU with 900W TGP, 48GB 24Gbps GDDR6X, 2x16pin and higher frequency'. So we have an AD102 GPU, 48GB of GDDR6X @ 24Gbps, a very hefty dual 16-pin power setup and an insane 900W of power.

This sounds like a next-gen Ada Lovelace-powered TITAN RTX, especially with 48GB of GDDR6X memory. Even the newest flagship GeForce RTX 3090 Ti rocks 24GB of GDDR6X, same with the card it replaced: the RTX 3090 also had 24GB of GDDR6X. But dual 16-pin power connectors, 900W of power, and 48GB of VRAM? Yeah, that doesn't sound like a GeForce... at least not yet, maybe in 2024+.

The leaker also provided some more details on the new AD103 GPU, which will reportedly power the GeForce RTX 4080 graphics card -- rocking 16GB of GDDR6X memory and it will have a 'similar TGP to GA102'. The new AD104 GPU will power the GeForce RTX 4070 and its 12GB of GDDR6 (non-X) memory with a 300W TGP.
