Official images of NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 PCB show minor changes from RTX 3090 Ti

While the AD102 Founder Edition board can support up to 28 additional stages, the RTX 4090 graphics card only has 23. This means NVIDIA may continue to use this board layout for even more efficient GPUs, such as the speculated GeForce RTX 4090 Ti.

Overall, the design of the PG136D (board number 4090 PCB) is almost similar to that of the RTX 3090 Ti Founders Edition (PG136). NVIDIA uses the same board number, despite the layout being changed. For starters, the power input section has been upgraded and larger chokes have been installed. Another notable difference is the absence of an NVLink connection as the RTX 40 series no longer supports hardware multi-GPU systems with SLI technology.

As for the GPU, we can now compare Ada and Ampere GPUs, which are recognized as the flagship processors for any version of the GeForce RTX series. Compared to the 8nm GA102, the Lovelace CPU, which is built using 4nm manufacturing technology, features 18432 CUDA cores and 2.7 times more transistors. Despite these improvements, the GPU is 20mm smaller.

However, the RTX 4090 will be available on October 12. More information will be released tomorrow, along with the first independent reviews highlighting NVIDIA’s own Founders Edition.
