GPU AD102 with 16384 cores, AD103 with 10240 cores and AD104 with 7168 cores

The specifications of the next generation NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090, RTX 4080 and RTX 4070 graphics cards have been changed again in the latest entry Kopite7kimi.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 Graphics Cards Get Specs Upgrade: RTX 4090 with 16384 cores, RTX 4080 with 10240 cores, and RTX 4070 with 7168 cores

The initial launch lineup is expected to include three graphics cards, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090, RTX 4080 and RTX 4070. The trio of these cards are expected to use Ada Lovelace GPUs based on the latest and best architecture and manufactured on TSMC node’s 4N process which is a slightly optimized variant of the 5 nm process node. The rumored specifications are listed below.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 specifications “rumored”.

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX RTX 4090 graphics card is supposed to be powered by the best AD102-300 GPU, but it is only the “Ti” variant that will feature the full chip. The Geforce RTX 4090 will use a slightly reduced configuration.

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 will use 128 SMs of the 144 SMs for a total of 16,384 CUDA cores. The GPU will ship with 96MB of L2 cache and a total of 384 ROPs, which is just crazy. Clock speeds are not confirmed yet, but considering the TSMC 4N process is used, we expect clocks to be in the 2.0-3.0 GHz range.

As for memory specs, the GeForce RTX 4090 is expected to have a GDDR6X capacity of 24GB which will have a clock speed of 21Gbps on a 384-bit bus interface. This will provide up to 1 TB / s of bandwidth. This is the same bandwidth as the existing RTX 3090 Ti graphics card and as far as power consumption is concerned, TBP is said to be rated at 450W, which means that the TGP may end up being less than that. The board will be powered by a single 16-pin connector providing up to 600W of power. Chances are we could get over 500W of custom designs, as we’ve seen with the RTX 3090 Ti.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 specifications “rumored”.

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 will be a scaled-down AD103-300 GPU configuration with 10,240 cores or 80 SMs enabled of the total 84 units. The GPU will ship with 64MB of L2 cache and up to 224 ROPs.

As for memory specs, the GeForce RTX 4080 is expected to have 16GB GDDR6X capabilities which are said to be tuned at 18Gbps speeds on a 256-bit bus interface. This will provide up to 576 GB / s of bandwidth. It’s a little odd that the RTX 4080 will feature lower bandwidth than its RTX 30 series predecessor, but it might be possible to see a GDDR6X variant as an upgrade. As for power, TBP is said to be rated at around 420W, which is close to the RTX 4090 and since the memory clocks are not that aggressive, the core clocks are likely to be optimized for maximum graphics performance. .

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 specifications “expected”.

Finally, we have the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 which is supposed to be a scaled-down configuration of the AD104-275 GPU with a slightly higher number of cores than the RTX 3070 TI (6144 cores) of 7168 cores or 56 SM. The GPU will ship with 48MB of L2 cache and up to 160 ROPs.

As for memory specs, the GeForce RTX 4070 is expected to have 10GB GDDR6 capabilities which are said to have 18Gbps clock speeds on a 160-bit bus interface. The card could reach a TBP of 300W and the leaker also claims that the price of this card would not be lower than that of the RTX 3070 or 3070 Ti graphics cards. Simply put, we can expect a price increase in the graphics segment of the “70” class.
