New rumors suggest that GeForce RTX 40 graphics cards will be very voracious

At first, rumors said that Nvidia GeForce RTX 40 video cards would consume about 500 watts, then gradually this bar was raised to 550-600 watts. And here is a new rumor attributing the top-end GeForce RTX 40 on the AD102 GPU to a consumption of 850 watts! This is an outrageous level for the current line: even the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti, which is a monster of power consumption at the moment, is characterized by a TDP of 450-480 watts. 

This was reported by two informants who constantly publish rumors about new models of video cards. And often their rumors are confirmed, especially for an insider with the nickname Greymon55. According to him, the TGP values ​​​​of the GPU AD102 - the top graphics processor in the Nvidia Ada Lovelace line - are 450, 650, and 850 watts. True, the informant is not sure whether we are talking about one model operating in different modes, or about three different video cards. He also notes that these are far from the final parameters and they may well still change.

Another source correlates these TGP levels with three models: 450W with the GeForce RTX 4080, 600W with the GeForce RTX 4080 Ti, 800W with the GeForce RTX 4090. However, according to him, so far this is nothing more than a rumor, and nothing has been confirmed yet.  

Be that as it may, everything indicates that the GeForce RTX 40 will set new standards not only for performance but also for power consumption. And we already need to mentally prepare for this: apparently, we will not see the current TDP / TGP levels. According to Greymon55, the official premiere of the GeForce RTX 40 will take place in September.
