RTX 4090 Ti or TITAN Ada, which will be NVIDIA’s next top card?

RTX-Titan

The existence of an RTX 4090 with a dual 12+4-pin PCIe Gen 5 connector is not a secret. What’s more, some models of the RTX 3090 Ti already have it integrated to be able to reach higher clock speeds than the standard version. The fact is that the difference in power or consumption gives enough margin to justify a superior model. Is NVIDIA preparing a GeForce RTX 4090Ti or even a RTX TITAN Ada for the launch of its next graphics cards?

When NVIDIA launched the RTX 3090, many of us had it very clear, it was a TITAN camouflaged with another name, however, the fact that it did not use the full version of the GA102 chip made us suspect about a more powerful version. The other clue was that it wasn’t using the full power of the power connector. That is to say, the existence of an RTX 3090 Ti was put in bright letters in front of everyone’s eyes. So it was no secret that it might exist eventually.

How likely are we to see an RTX 4090 Ti?

There is several information that indicates that NVIDIA could repeat the same move as with the RTX 30. The first one and the most obvious are the clues about what would be the maximum configuration that the architecture can have:

  • Dual 12+4-pin PCIe Gen 5 connectorconsumption close to 900W.
  • Use of memory chips GDDR6X at 24Gbps in clamshell mode for 48GB memory on the card.
  • 384 bus bits with video memory
  • AD102 chip in its full configuration.

While if we talk about the other specifications, the rumor mill also tells us about some that are a little below:

  • A single 12+4-pin PCIe Gen 5 connectorconsumption close to 600W.
  • 24GB memory GDDR6X at 21Gbps.
  • The bus is also 384 bit.
  • AD102 chipbut it is not known if in its full configuration.

One thing we’ve seen in all the RTX 40-related controversy since the leak was the assumption that AD103 will be the RTX 4080 chip and AD102 the RTX 4090 chip. network gossips. What is known is that it is the AD102 chip that NVIDIA already has ready and with which it is making the first graphics cards. Since not all chips come out of the wafer the same and are often cataloged in different products due to this, this leads us to a clear conclusion. Not only the RTX 4090 will be equipped with such a chip.

We can see an RTX TITAN Ada

If what the rumors say is true, then eThe AD102 chip in the RTX 4090 is going to offer twice the power of the standard RTX 3090, then we have to assume that it has to offer a higher value of power per dollar. Assuming that the current generation card came out almost two years ago for a price of 1,549 euros, then the RTX 4090 logically has to be priced below 3,000 euros. Of course, above the price of the 3090 Ti, which is €2,249.

NVIDIA-RTX-40

So NVIDIA’s top of the range for the next generation it could be placed in the €3000 easily. A price that places it outside the gaming market in general and is more of a professional graphics card. Well, the logical thing is to think that the 3090 Ti have a very short-lived life in stores, that they are seen and not seen and are quickly replaced by the top-of-the-range model. Although for that price we don’t even think that NVIDIA has any justification to sell it as RTX 4090 Ti even. Can we see a RTX TITAN Ada? Who knows, it is still a possibility and it would make sense.

And what about gaming architectures? Well, if we think about it, it would not be a surprise to see an RTX 4090 based on the new board and with an 600W mid TGP then a 450W RTX 4080. Both with the same chip, but with different configurations in terms of the number of SM and who knows if with the memory bus shortened. Rumors in the second case speak of a 126 SM configuration.
