RTX 4080 will reach 420 watts

After the numerous info regarding the possible launch date of Nvidia's RTX 4000 and the related characteristics, the rumors move to the possible consumption of the models that will arrive first, such as the RTX 4080. The info comes from the insider kopite7kimi, according to which the TGP of the new video card should reach 420W, an increase of 100W compared to the current RTX 3080.

The RTX 4080 should be based on the new AD103 graphics chip and equipped with 16GB GDDR6X video memory with 256-bit bus. According to what emerged, however, the card could make use of the same PCB as the 4090: in this way the two graphics chips would have a pin compatibility that would allow partners to adopt the same cooling solutions. However, the increase in consumption should not come as a surprise if we consider that even the lower-end model RTX 4060 will have, according to rumors, a higher TDP than even the RTX 3070.

if ( jQuery ("# ​​crm_srl-th_hardware_d_mh2_1"). The consumption of the new GPUs of Nvidia's RTX 4000 range will obviously make it necessary to have a sufficiently adequate power supply, which may even have to exceed 1000 watts if you choose to buy an RTX 4090 Ti. The card, whose heatsink images were leaked last month, should in fact have a particularly high TDP of 600W.

However, according to recent rumors about the presentation, the RTX 4080 should be launched in November after 4090, expected in September. The card will therefore precede the 4070 scheduled for December, as well as the 4060 expected for CES 2023.

Rumor:GeForce RTX 4080 Gets 420 W TDP

According to leaker Kopite, NVIDIA's next-generation graphics cards will have larger power budgets. The RTX 4090 has a TDP over well over 400W, this chatter says even the RTX 4080 may have a 420 W rating.

This RTX 4080 (PG139-SKU360) would be 100 W more powerful than the RTX 3080, and the RTX 4070 and 4060 would also gain power. If NVIDIA uses GDDR6X memory, the RTX 4070 might have a 400 W power budget, while the RTX 4060 could go up 50 W to 220 W. These cards will be available in late 2022, according to rumors.
