Real leak or a fan made render? Nvidia's RTX 4090 Founders Edition Design Leaks
QbitLeaks has released two new images of what is allegedly Nvidia's RTX 4090 Founders Edition graphics card, and what is claimed to be "internal RTX40 graphs" that detail the performance gains that are expected from an RTX 40 series graphics card.
The renders above and below showcase a triple-slot graphics card that appears to be similar in size to Nvidia's RTX 3090 graphics card, but with a larger fan and what appears to be a denser heatsink. Currently, it is unknown if this render is a leaked render from Nvidia or if it is a fan-made render that is based on other RTX 40 series leaks.
It is worth noting that this render does not look like official Nvidia RTX Founders Edition GPU renders, as these renders usually are more detailed and contain more artistic use of lighting and reflections. That said, this could be an early draft of a future Nvidia render.
Performance - 80-120% performance boosts
QbitLeaks has also released a chart that showcases an unknown Nvidia RTX 40 series SKU against its RTX 30 series counterpart. This GPU model is expected to be Nvidia's RTX 4090 when compared to their RTX 3090. This chart showcases performance gains of 80-120% for Nvidia's next-generation graphics card, which is a tremendous generational performance leap for Nvidia.
Recent rumours have suggested that Nvidia's RTX 4090 would feature 16384 CUDA cores and 24 GB of GDDR6X memory. This gives the RTX 4090 a 56% increase in CUDA core count over its predecessor. Nvidia's use of a new lithography node should also allow Nvidia to dramatically increase its GPU core clock speeds with its RTX 40 series, and Nvidia's next-generation Ada Lovelace architecture should offer gamers its own performance advantages.
With all of these potential avenues for performance improvements in mind, it makes sense why such huge performance gains could be possible with Nvidia's RTX 40 series. Note that all of the games mentioned below are Nvidia marketed titles that make heavy use of ray tracing and feature support for DLSS. Could some of these performance gains come from faster DLSS using enhanced Tensor cores?
QbitLeaks posted the images above stating that they were a "teaser for GTC", implying that we can expect Nvidia to showcase their next-generation GPU architecture at GTC later this month.
