Nvidia is rumored to designed a triple-fan cooler for reference board of AD102
Recently, it has been reported that the GeForce RTX 40 series graphics cards based on the Ada Lovelace architecture GPU have a higher TDP than the current GeForce RTX 30 series based on the Ampere architecture. This means that larger-scale cooling systems will generally be used on next-generation graphics cards.
Recently, Twitter user @kopite7kimi revealed that Nvidia has been developing a new public radiator with triple fans for public graphics cards equipped with AD102. If the power consumption of the GeForce RTX 4090/RTX 4090 Ti is really 450W or more as rumored, then such news will not be surprising.
At present, except for the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti Founders Edition, almost all the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti of the graphics card manufacturers are equipped with a three-fan radiator or a hybrid cooling system. In addition, this radiator is not necessarily used by the GeForce RTX 4090, it may also be the more high-end GeForce RTX 4090 Ti.
It is rumored that Nvidia is not in a hurry to release the GeForce RTX 40 series graphics cards. The exact release date for the new generation remains wobbly as its partners continue to deplete the inventory of GeForce RTX 30-series graphics cards.
