Nvidia will reportedly not be making a top-end Lovelace graphics card RTX Titan model, a GPU previously rumored to be.
This comes from a regular Twitter-based hardware leaker, Kopite7kimi, who in a very brief tweet told us that the Titan is no longer planned by Nvidia (as reported by VideoCardz (opens in new tab)). That said, if it ever was – of course we need to put an appropriate dose of spice into this possibility, and indeed into this new speculation.
What that doesn’t mean, however, is that we won’t see another high-end GPU in the future other than the RTX 4090 built around a fully unleashed AD102 chip.
The theory is that it won’t arrive in the form of a new RTX Titan, but it could be an RTX 4090 Ti. Kopite7kimi clarifies in another tweet: “4090 Ti is still possible in the future.”
Analysis: A more modest strategy for AD102
We would go further and say that the RTX 4090 Ti is likely in the future. In fact, we’d be surprised if Nvidia didn’t eventually release something more powerful than the RTX 4090, given that it uses a stripped down AD102 chip – and that margin has certainly been left for a reason.
Essentially, there’s more room here for a more powerful flagship graphics card, so there seems to be a strong possibility that Nvidia is an option. The problem for Team Green will likely be the need to push the power requirements higher than the RTX 4090’s already beefy 450W TGP.
In fact, we’ve heard before that a full-fledged AD102 card could hit up to a ridiculous-sounding 800W, or more recently 600W (and that’s the rated power draw for the base spec, with potentially faster overclocked third-party cards). grabbing more than that during peak usage).
In short, the PSU requirements could be pretty revealing, but then again, the RTX 4090 Ti – or RTX Titan, which it seems will never exist – are graphics cards that wouldn’t be bought outside of a niche group of power users and PC enthusiasts (or affluent hardcore gamers). Who will undoubtedly have rigs well-equipped to handle any power supplies or associated thermal demands (and power bills)?
An RTX 4090 Ti will likely be a relatively modest step up, as it retains the same specs as the RTX 4090, apart from increasing the number of CUDA cores and increasing the clocks slightly (and increasing power consumption as mentioned, where 600 W sounds more like a Ti variant than a Titan).
Of course, it will also increase the price significantly, and we probably won’t see it for some time. Certainly, if Kopite7kimi is correct, Nvidia is obviously not talking about the GPU just yet, and it is only one probability. But it makes sense, and on the other hand, the rumor mill also counts on Nvidia already putting aside the best AD102 chips for a future Ti version; If true, that’s certainly a strong indication that the supercharged flagship is coming.
