In brief: Nvidia officially revealed the RTX 4090 this week, confirming rumors that the next-gen card is both incredibly powerful and absolutely massive. Third-party models from various companies are now unveiled, including one in one Gigabyte that’s so big it might fit four Mini-ITX cards within it.
Nvidia AIB partners including Asus, MSI, Colorful, among othersnot EVGA, obviouslyhave been revealing their assumes the RTX 4090, RTX 4080 16GB, and RTX 4080 12GB, formerly referred to as the RTX 4070 (probably).
Regarding the RTX 4090, even Nvidia’s Founders Edition looked gigantic in CEO Jensen Huang’s hand through the GTC keynote, however the third-party versions of the flagship are, oftentimes, even larger.
VideoCardz writes that Gigabyte’s RTX 4090 Aorus Master is really a triple-fan four-slot beast measuring just over 14 inches long and 6.3 inches wide. The publication estimates you could easily stack four Mini-ITX cards within it. With a level of 4,383 mm, you can even fit ten Radeon RX 6400 low-profile cards in the same space. It really is noted, however, that Gigabyte isn’t adding triple or quadruple I/O brackets to its cards, unlike others.
We’re also seeing RTX 4090s with AIO liquid cooling solutions. MSI’s Suprim Liquid, for instance, offers hybrid cooling by means of a 240mm radiator and a set of Silent Gale P12 120m fans.
Colorful’s Neptune series offers liquid cooling RTX 4000-series cards, that have the benefit of being just 2 PCIe slots wide. Its Vulcan series, meanwhile, include an all-new iGame Smart LCDa detachable magnetic display.
Additionally, there are Zotac’s curvy, skateboard-like AMP Extreme AIRO, Trinity, and Trinity OC cards. We saw a few of these in leaked images prior to the RTX 4000-series announcement; it’s good to find this is one leak that wasn’t a fake.
Nvidia AIB partners are putting plenty of concentrate on new and improved cooling features for his or her RTX 4090/4080 cards, so it will likely be interesting to see what the reviews reveal after they get to October and November.
