Some are still waiting for the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti graphics card to debut in the store (a Spectrum card has been shown, but we don’t know what happens at the moment), while a new generation of chips from NVIDIA and AMD, representing the Ada Lovelace architecture, is on the horizon. and RDNA 3. A lot of rumors so far have suggested a significant increase in power consumption, mainly for better enthusiast designs. The most powerful next-generation GeForce RTX 4000 will use the AD102 core. Previously, it was suggested that the power consumption in this case could reach 500 watts. According to the latest reports, the actual power consumption of the main graphics card will be much higher. If the information turns out to be correct, we prepare an unimaginably polished graphic layout.
According to unofficial information, the power consumption of NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4000 graphics cards with AD102 (Ada Lovelace) cores will be higher than previously suggested. The upcoming top-end in the form of a GeForce RTX 4090 could reach the 800-850W level.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 – the main graphics card of the Ada Lovelace family, can have very high power consumption
The first information came from Twitter user Greymon55 who claims that the new architecture of Ada Lovelace and the first GeForce RTX 4000 graphics cards will debut in September. This isn’t particularly surprising, as the Turing and Ampere models also debuted in similar periods. The information has been expanded to include the topic of TGP for the AD102 graphics chip, which is the operation of cards from the “80 / 80Ti / 90” chip, which of course refers to the GeForce RTX 4080, GeForce RTX 4080 Ti and GeForce RTX 4090 card: According to Greymon55, the TGP rate of the AD102 variants is up different to 450W, 650W and 850W respectively, and the more powerful the card, the more hand you get.
I’m not clear at the moment if one model has three TGP bands or if it has three but the TGP number for AD102 is 450W-650W-850W, of course this is not the final specification and there may be some deviation.

This is just a rumour.
I’ve heard the 450/600/800W for the 80/80Ti/90 before.
But not everything has been confirmed.

When interpreting the specified parameters, it is worth paying attention to the GeForce RTX 3080, GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and GeForce RTX 3090 cards that use the GA102 chip. The TGP factor is 320W, 350W, and 350W, respectively (or 450W for the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti). We’re talking about a very significant increase in power consumption, especially in the context of the GeForce RTX 4080 Ti and GeForce RTX 4090. Another Twitter user – kopite7kimi – who often shares information about upcoming cards, also notes that the AD102 core may have a huge power appetite. . However, he confirmed that at the moment this is a rumor with a 50% probability of confirmation, and until the release of new cards, the specifications may change.
