The GeForce RTX 4090 release satiated all GPU enthusiasts’ hunger for power. But that calm didn’t last too long. Now that people have seen how far the new Ada Lovelace architecture can go, some are asking for more. One question seemingly flows through the air: “will Nvidia make an RTX 4090 Ti.”

The truth is that for now there isn’t any official announcement from Nvidia regarding a 4090 Ti. However, the board design and cooling system look like they were built to endure even more power, which means there could be a lot of room left for improvements on the ADA102 GPU. We could assume that Nvidia is waiting for AMD’s RX 7900 XT release to show consumers all the potential power its new Lovelace tech can achieve.

Rumored RTX 4090 Ti specs

The RTX 4090 Ti is expected to release in 2023, and the rumors about its specs are already all over the place. It might be built with the ADA102 graphic processor under the same TSMC’s 4nm process node. It could have 18,176 CUDA cores, almost 2,000 more than the current RTX 4090, and potentially provide 24GB of GDDR6X memory.

All of this amounts to a boosted “2.75Ghz (2.95. gaming) 475W 18176 CUDA cores 96MB L2 cache 24Gb,” which would be an overall improvement of 10% to 20% more than the 4090, according to @XpeaGPU on Twitter.

Rumored RTX 4090 Ti Power consumption

Being a more powerful GPU, it would draw more power compared to the already power-hungry RTX 4090. The rumor says the upgraded Ti product will be a triple-slot card drawing power from a 2X 16-pin connector for a maximum wattage requirement of 800. The GPU would operate at a frequency of 2,355 MHz and 2,625 MHz when boosted, which again will necessitate more power from the PSU.

The RTX 4090, as it is right now, already requires a 1000W PSU, at the least, while the RTX 4090 Ti could be needing a minimum PSU of 1250W, or even more depending on the PC’s overall specs.

We have to stress that all of this information is only based on rumor. Nvidia hasn’t said anything about the RTX 4090 Ti yet. And if this GPU does ever be released, we will need to wait at least until the last quarter of 2023.
