Did you lastly discover a gaming GPU inside your finances now that sanity is returning to the market? Right here’s a cause to maintain on ready: the Nvidia RTX 4090 would possibly arrive as quickly as mid-July (through VideoCardz).

That’s the phrase from kopite7kimi, the leaker who accurately predicted the specs of the RTX 3090 and RTX 3090, amongst different issues.

Kopite7kimi’s latest predictions recommend the RTX 4090 would require as much as 450W of energy all by itself, similar to the $1,999 RTX 3090 Ti that Nvidia placed on sale in March, however provide fairly just a few extra cores than the last-gen chip: 16,128 of them paired with 24GB of GDDR6X reminiscence at 21Gbps.

And whereas that’s solely round 50 p.c extra cores than the RTX 3090, it’s on Nvidia’s new Ada Lovelace structure which — once more, reportedly — crams in a bunch of different {hardware} as effectively, sufficient that some watchers suspect we may even see double the uncooked efficiency this {hardware} era. Wccftech has a good breakdown of the math, in the event you’re curious, although Kimi’s truly suggesting fewer cores and decrease energy (450W versus 600W) for the RTX 4090 at the moment than beforehand.

Kimi’s been trickling out predictions for months, truly, however we’ve been ready for them to begin to agency up. As you would possibly count on, those proactively labeled “April Fools’ Day” didn’t give us a lot confidence!

And, talking of April Fools’, bear in mind when one Nvidia fan imagined the RTX 4090 could be a 1,000W card with two energy cords and 48GB of reminiscence? Final month, Kimi steered Nvidia is definitely testing a 900W card with 48GB of memory that requires two 16-pin power connectors to perform.
