GeForce RTX 4090 would consume up to 750W, it would arrive in September

There are fresh reports concerning the Geforce RTX 4090, centered on the TDP and release date. On the one hand, the card should provide 2.5 times the performance of its predecessor, but it may also process twice as much energy.

The GeForce RTX 4080 Ti and RTX 4090 will demand much more power, 750W up to 800W in the latter's case. Greymon55, a leaker who anticipated the introduction of a big number of current AMD and Nvidia products, revealed the first information about it. According to what he revealed, the RTX 4000 will be available in September, with TGP (Total Graphics Power) ratings of 450W, 650W, and 850W, although he emphasized that these are not final specs and may change. The information was confirmed in the comments area by another well-known leaker, "kopite7kimi," who routinely gets his allegations accurate. Although it is a rumor, he claims to have heard that the RTX 4080 would consume 450 watts, the RTX 4080 Ti will consume 600 watts, and the RTX 4090 will require 800 watts, implying that this has already been confirmed by numerous sources.

Following these revelations, it seems significantly more logical to implement the new PCI-E 5.0 GPU power connection, which enables up to 600W per connector. We can power an RTX 4090 with just two ports with this adapter, but with regular 8-pin PCI-E connectors rated at 150W per connector, we would need five or even six of these connectors, which is clearly not feasible.

This may not be an issue in the United States, where a kilowatt-hour of power costs an average of 11 US cents. However, in Europe, many individuals will use a slide rule. Here, an average of 35 euro cents is expected. 

According to another story, we'll find out in September. Because that's where the Geforce RTX 4090 is expected to emerge, most likely alongside a few Lovelace products. Time will tell ...
