Gigabyte's flagship RTX 4090 design is massive
Gigabyte has revealed their Aorus Geforce RTX 4090 Master graphics card, the company's new Geforce gaming flaghip. This is Gigabyte's most powerful RTX 4090 graphics card, and it features a colossal heatsink design.
Measuring in at 358.5mm wide, 162.8mm tall, and 75.1mm thick, Gigabyte's RTX 4090 Aorus Master graphics card is easily the largest graphics card that the company has ever produced. It dwarfs all of their other GPU designs, even their already huge RTX 3090 Ti models. Just look at this graphics card's PCIe bracket and you should see how massive this graphics card is when compared to other modern GPUs.
With 16384 CUDA cores, and 24GB of 21Gbps GDDR6X memory, Gigabyte's RTX 4090 Aorus Master is a powerful graphics card. Gigabyte has recommended that users of this graphics card have a 1000W PSU or larger, and has bundled with this graphics card a PCIe 16-pin to 4x 6+2-pin power adaptor, which theoretically allows this graphics card to consume up to 600 watts of power. Gigabyte are also shipping this graphics card with an "anti-sag bracket".
The three fans on Gigabyte's Aorus RTX 4090 Master are 110mm in diameter, making them larger than the fans that are included with other graphics cards. These fans are Gigabyte's new Windforce Bionic Shark fans, its heatsink included 13 composite copper heat piles, and a large vapour chamber, that directly touches Nvidia's RTX 4090 silicon.
For context, we have compared Gigabyte's RTX 4090 Aorus Master to its RTX 3090 counterpart and Gigabyte's RTX 2080 Ti Xtreme graphics card. Both of these graphics cards were considered large when they were released.

A new addition to Gigabyte's RTX 4090 Aorus Master is the graphics card's LCD Edge screen, which can be used to display graphics card information, custom text, pictures, and GIFs. These effects can be controlled using the Gigabyte Control Center.
Nvidia's RTX 4090 graphics cards are launching on October 12th, and Gigabyte's RTX 4090 Aorus Master model is expected to be available on day-1. Sadly, Gigabyte has not revealed the core clock speeds of this graphics card at this time.
