Nvidia's RTX 4090 Ti heatsink design has leaked - It's Massive!

Is this Nvidia's RTX 4090 Founders Edition heatsink?

Nvidia's RTX 4090 Ti heatsink design has leaked - It's Massive!

Nvidia's RTX 4090 Ti heatsink has leaked, and it is colossal

over on the Chinese forum Chiphell, images of what appears to be Nvidia's RTX 4090 Ti heatsink have leaked, revealing a design that's similar to Nvidia's RTX 30 series with some key design improvements. 

For starters, Nvidia's RTX 4090 Ti heatsink is huge, being multiple PCIe slots thick with large fans and a much larger base plate. Looking at the image below, we can now see that Nvidia's RTX 4090 Ti base plate now covers the GPU's core and memory components, much like ASUS' recently released RTX 3080 Noctua OC Edition graphics card. This design change should help lower Nvidia's memory thermals with their RTX 40 series products, a deficiency with many current-generation RTX 30 series GPU models. 

overall, Nvidia's RTX 40 Founders Edition design appears to be very similar to their current-generation RTX 30 series counterparts, which makes sense given the capabilities of those coolers. Why change everything when you could simply tweak Nvidia's existing design scheme?

Recent rumours have suggested that Nvidia's RTX 40 series flagship would ship with a thermal design power of 450W to 600W, necessitating the design of a larger, more capable heatsink design from Nvidia. The above heatsink design certainly seems beefy enough for the job, though it remains to be seen whether or not this new heatsink design is legitimate, or of this is Nvidia's RTX 40 series Founders Edition heatsink in its final form.

Some recent reports have suggested that Nvidia's RTX 40 series lineup could launch as early as mid-July, though at this time Nvidia has not revealed anything publically about their RTX 40 series products.

Wont be long until they are out then if they have already started mass production, not long at all, i'd say do not buy a card now at all just wait and see first.Quote

all the RTX line up "top of the line" begining on 3080ti and up (rtx 3090 and 3090ti) is just a disaster in terms of price per fps as shown in the recent videos of Hardware unboxed.

The price to performance ratio is really bad. RX 6900 and RX 6950XT is much better in comparison.

IF the price is above the actual features, it will be a disaster like the actual line up. Nvidia always abuses of high prices because people are a bit "ya know boi".
Do not buy this cards. You will not get them at MSRP either, but at scalping prices, so who cares???Quote

Prices are almost somewhat reasonable now, I made sure to buy mine, it's being delivered today, I won't wait again just for these new cards to prove they are 2x as powerful but 8x as efficient at mining and bring back all the miners to the GPU market.

I know I can play modern games very well now, if those cards are actually well priced and perform as good as the rumours suggest I might buy an RTX 40 late next year but more probably i'll wait for RTX 50, and hope it comes with better power comsumption.

Even if 30 series drops in price when 40 series launch I will still be happy, at least I guaranteed mine instead of hoping for better prices.Quote

AMD are still royally taking the pee.

Three days ago my buddy who sold his rig about two years back called me asking about modern gear.

I said "tbh dude I would get a 6800xt. It's far cheaper than the 3080 and for what you will need you won't need RT".

I then felt like a total mug when he started showing me prices. He's in the US btw. All of the Radeons were over priced to the point where it totally wasn't worth it. In the end he bought a 3080 Vision for about $850.

All he really wants to do is play PUBG with us now that he's single again.

AMD are meme at this point. You'd think they would actually want new customers and gain market share but they seem content being meh.Quote

Well on scan atm it's £100 cheaper but regional pricing is always a weird thing we seem to pay 1-1 on the numbers, but i think EU has it worse tbh.

I'd personally wait if i was buying now as the current ones either have to come down in price or the new stuff is going to go up in price and i think we know which is more likely but can hope all the same.

I think Intel are kinda screwed if Nvidia is coming out so soon they must just be wanting to get a head start on early sales and amd sure want to see their prices i'd just prefer them to compete properly.

msrp of the 6800XT was meant to be $680 sure not seen it.

Still mine cost $0 so while i'm keen on amd these days it most likely explains why, but i'd still have tried to get the card i have either way Quote
