NVIDIA's Next-Gen GeForce RTX 40 Founders Edition Cooler For High-End GPUs Allegedly Leaks Out 1

NVIDIA’s next-gen GeForce RTX 40 Founders Edition cooler for high-end GPUs reportedly leaks

Next-Gen NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 Series Founders Edition Design Reportedly Leaked By QbitLeaks. The new design shows us a preview of the updated Founders Edition GPU cooler that will be featured on high-end Ada Lovelace GPUs such as the RTX 4090 and 4080.

NVIDIA’s Massive GeForce RTX 40 Founders Edition cooler is rumored to be leaking and coming soon to an RTX 4090 and RTX 4080 graphics card!

According to the leaker, this new cooler design that was photographed will be part of the GTC ’22 keynote to be held two weeks later. No details are provided as to which card it is, but the updated shroud and fan design matches the leaked RTX 4080 cooler a few days ago. It looks like NVIDIA will be reusing its existing cooler design and giving it a slight visual overhaul.

We’ve seen in previous leaks that the heatsink under the shroud has been updated with a larger thermal contact surface that covers the GPU, VRAM, and VRMs. The fans have been updated to a 7-blade fan design and are also slightly larger, but the overall look of the shroud and design remains essentially the same as the current Founders Edition graphics cards. This updated design should help provide much better cooling for Ada Lovelace GPUs which will consume a lot of power. The cards will also use a PCIe Gen 5.0 connector interface and a Gen 5.0 power interface through the new 16-pin connectors.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 Founders Edition Graphics Card Cooler / Shroud Leak:

The leaker says this image is a teaser for GTC, so we could definitely see CEO Jensen talking about his line of next-gen games during the event. GTC used to be a data center and HPC specific event, but with NVIDIA’s recent drop in revenue, mainly due to the falling gaming market, the company refocused its main event and made it dedicated to gamers.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 “expected” specs

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 is expected to use a scaled-down AD103-300 GPU configuration with 9,728 cores or 76 SMs enabled out of a total of 84 units, while the previous configuration offered 80 SMs or 10,240 cores. While the full GPU comes with 64MB L2 cache and up to 224 ROPs, the RTX 4080 could end up with 48MB L2 cache and lower ROPs also due to its scaled-down design. The board should be based on the PG136/139-SKU360 PCB.

As for memory specs, the GeForce RTX 4080 is expected to rock 16GB GDDR6X capacities which would be scaled to 23Gbps speeds on a 256-bit bus interface. This will provide up to 736 GB/s of bandwidth. This is still a bit slower than the 760 GB/s bandwidth offered by the RTX 3080 since it comes with a 320-bit interface but a low 10 GB capacity. To compensate for the lower bandwidth, NVIDIA could integrate a next-generation memory compression suite to compensate for the 256-bit interface.

For power, the TBP is now set to be rated at 340W, a 20W increase from the previous 320W spec we got. This brings the TBP to the same level as the existing RTX 3080 graphics card (up to 350W). Now, it’s unknown if the other RTX 40 series graphics cards will also receive the faster GDDR6X memory processing, but we do know that Micron has started full mass production of GDDR6X memory modules up to 24 Gbps, they have to go somewhere.

  • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 TBP “expected” – 340W
  • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 TBP “Official” – 350W

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 “expected” specs

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 will use 128 SM out of the 144 SM for a total of 16,384 CUDA cores. The GPU will come with 96MB of L2 cache and a total of 384 ROPs, which is just insane. Clock speeds are not yet confirmed, but given that the TSMC 4N process is used, we expect clocks between 2.0 and 3.0 GHz.

As far as memory specs go, the GeForce RTX 4090 is expected to rock 24GB GDDR6X capacities which will be clocked at 21Gbps speeds 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 when it comes to power consumption, the TBP is said to be rated at 450W, which means the TGP could be lower than that. The board will be powered by a single 16-pin connector that delivers up to 600W of power. We’re likely to get 500W+ custom designs like we saw with the RTX 3090 Ti.

As for its feature set, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 and RTX 4080 graphics cards will rock all modern NV feature sets such as latest 4th Gen Tensor cores, 3rd Gen RT cores, latest NVENC encoder and the NVCDEC decoder, and support for the latest APIs. They will also contain all modern RTX features such as DLSS, Reflex, Broadcast, Resizable-BAR, Freestyle, Ansel, Highlights, Shadowplay and G-SYNC.

  • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 TBP “expected” – 450W
  • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 TBP “Official” – 350W

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 series graphics cards, including the RTX 4080 and RTX 4070 graphics cards, will be among the first graphics cards besides the RTX 4090 to be released to gamers. The RTX 4090 is so far expected to launch on October 22, but an unveiling is expected during NVIDIA’s GTC keynote later this month.
