Perhaps it is no longer a secret that Nvidia is actively preparing to start sales of a new family of graphics cards for the most demanding PC game fans. This is the GeForce RTX 4000 family of graphics cards, which, of course, will be more powerful than the GeForce RTX 3000 family of models. The new family of Nvidia graphics cards will be based on the AD102 graphics core, made using 4nm technology.
With the GeForce RTX 4000 family of graphics cards practically ready for sale, Nvidia has announced maximum power consumption for single families for newcomers. Of course, the AD102 core, which will be used for GeForce RTX 4090 graphics cards, will consume the largest amount of electricity, that is, 800 watts. This is not surprising, since the data conversion core will contain 16,128 CUDA cores. A graphics card equipped with a new core will contain 24 GB of GDDR6X graphics memory with up to 21 Gbps bandwidth for intermediate arithmetic storage. The graphics core and memory will be connected via a 384-bit bus, or the same as the 3090 Ti.
The less powerful GeForce RTX 4080 graphics card will be equipped with the AD103 core. The PC version will consume up to 450 watts of electrical power at full load, while the portable version will consume up to 175 watts of electrical power. The AD104 graphics core will be dedicated to the GeForce RTX 4070 graphics cards. The mobile version will also be limited to 175 watts, and the PC version to 400 watts. The AD106 graphics core will be dedicated to the GeForce RTX 4060 graphics cards. When fully loaded, it should be able to consume up to 260 watts for the desktop and 140 watts for the mobile version.
