Galax's RTX 4090 SG "Serous Gaming" model leaks with a four-fan heatsink

Push-pull fans on a GPU? Crazy!

Galax's RTX 4090 SG

Galax's RTX 4090 design could be thicker than four slots, thanks to its fourth optional fan

Renders of Galax's RTX 4090 SG (Serious Gaming) graphics card have leaked online via Videocardz, showcasing a thick triple-fan heatsink design and an optional fourth fan that can be utilised to boost this GPU's cooling potential. 

Even without the RTX 4090 SG's fourth fan, the graphics card appears to be four PCIe slots thick, and with its additional rear fan, the graphics card has the potential to take up five PCIe slots worth of space. This additional fan sits at on the backplate of the RTX 4090 SG and gives the base of the graphics card a push/pull fan configuration, boosting the GPU's overall airflow and cooling potential. 

With these renders, we can see that Nvidia's RTX 4090 lacks any form of SLI support, be it though a traditional SLI connector or though a newer NVLink bridge. If these renders are legitimate, Nvidia has officially killed off SLI, ending the era of multi-GPU gaming.

With Galax's RTX 4090 SG model, we can also see PCIe 5.0 16-pin (12+4-pin 12VHPR) power connector, a connector that is capable of delivering up to 600 watts of power to Galax's RTX 4090 SG. Whether or not this GPU will support a TDP that high remains to be seen. 

Nvidia is expected to reveal their RTX 4090 graphics card at their "Geforce Beyond" Special Broadcast on September 20th.

Depends on the mobo but that will not clear RAM.

Even with a regular GPU in the slot I can't pop my ram without removing the GPU because the black plate blocks me popping the release mech.Quote

Your right but if it's long enough it may just be clear, i'd not buy it thou Quote

Unless it's 30cm or more before that fan it will hit.

I've never seen a GPU that long.Quote
