Lenovo GeForce RTX 4090 With Massive 4-Slot Cooler Smiles For The Camera
In the first photo, showing the purported Ada Lovelace architecture flagship, we can see the add-in-card fitted into what looks like a pre-built Lenovo Legion gaming PC. The graphics card appears to be extremely bulky, with a quad-slot design and triple fan-packed cooling shroud. Additionally, it stands significantly taller than the expansion card bracket, and its length was barely accommodated by this PC’s chassis.
Another thing we can see quite clearly from the system picture is the single 12VHPWR connector. This isn’t plugged in, though the build would benefit from an angled connector or else it might press against the side panel. The power connector will be used to supply the copious wattage that rumors insist will be necessary to feed the GeForce RTX 4090 when it is put to task in gaming or content creation tasks.
The pictures of the RTX 4090 cooling solution attest to the large quantity of waste heat this GPU is going to emit. According to the latest rumors, it will chew through up to 450W when excited. This amount of power is obviously necessary to power its AD102 GPU with 75 billion transistors, running at several GHz, with 16,384 CUDA cores, and 24GB of 21Gbps GDDR6X.
Please note that the triple fans will be pushing air through a mass of aluminum fins threaded by a very dense array of copper heatpipes which make contact with a substantial copper block atop of the GPU.
If the towering presence of this graphics card doesn’t impress you, hopefully its performance will. We will very likely see this GeForce RTX 40 series GPU fully revealed by NVIDIA at the Project Beyond special broadcast, just five days from today.
