NVIDIA RTX 4090 Ti / TITAN public version graphics card pictures
Those who have been tracking the development of Ada Lovelace architecture GPUs over the past year would have likely encountered numerous reports about the GeForce RTX 4090 Ti / TITAN. Rumors suggested that Nvidia had prepared a PCB design and cooling solution capable of handling 900W. However, due to considerations related to size, weight, heat dissipation, and power consumption, and lacking significant competitive pressure from AMD, Nvidia ultimately decided to discontinue this graphics card.
Previous leaks had revealed that the GeForce RTX 4090 Ti / TITAN was equipped with a massive cooling module spanning four slots. However, these lacked the PCB component, meaning they were not complete graphics cards. Recently, a netizen showcased a more complete prototype of the GeForce RTX 4090 Ti / TITAN reference card. This card, however, seemed to lack the PCB rotated by 90 degrees, which, according to previously disclosed details, would have been arranged differently from the vertical stacking typical of standard graphics cards.
The netizen claimed to have acquired the card directly from an Nvidia employee, though it’s difficult to believe such an engineering sample would be distributed casually. The label on the card undoubtedly indicates its origin from Nvidia or one of its assembly contractors. The netizen also asserted that more detailed information about the product would be provided in time.
Even possessing a complete GeForce RTX 4090 Ti / TITAN reference card would be of little practical use since it lacks official driver support, rendering it inoperable. However, community members might step forward to provide workable drivers.
Past rumors have described the Ada Lovelace architecture TITAN, codenamed “the beast,” as equipped with the AD102-450-A1 GPU. Like the RTX 6000 Ada Generation, it boasts 18176 CUDA cores. The PCB design is identified as PG137-SKU0, featuring 48GB of GDDR6X memory with a speed of 24Gbps and two 16-pin 12VHPWR interfaces, pushing the card’s power consumption up to 800W. The GeForce RTX 4090 Ti, with the PCB design of PG136/139-SKU310, reduces power consumption to 600W and halves the memory capacity compared to the TITAN.
