NVIDIA's Next-Gen Flagship GeForce Graphics Card Detailed: AD102 GPU, 24 GB & 21 Gbps Memory, Up To 600W TGP

NVIDIA’s groundbreaking next-generation GeForce GPU graphics card rumored to feature AD102, 21Gbps, 24GB, up to 600W TGP

NVIDIA’s Ada Lovelace GPUs will be available to gamers later this year in next-generation GeForce RTX graphics cards. These cards are expected to rock some extreme specs and some extreme GPU requirements to work as detailed before Kopite7kimi In his latest round of leaks.

Detailed NVIDIA Next Generation GeForce Graphics Card: AD102 GPU, 24GB Memory, 21Gbps, up to 600W TGP

There may be a file new rumor Surrounding the naming convention used by next-generation GeForce graphics cards, some are now referring to the name change to the GeForce RTX 50 series instead of the previously expected GeForce RTX 40 series. In the end, whatever NVIDIA decides to call the next GeForce lineup isn’t nearly as important as the base specs.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 ‘Ada Lovelace’ graphics card with ‘rumored’ GA102-300 GPU specification

We know from leaked NVIDIA Ada Lovelace GPU configurations that the flagship GA102 Gaming chip will rock a total of 144 SMs, up 71% over the current GA102 GPU, and featuring 18,432 CUDA core counts. The chip used by the main GeForce graphics card will rock the AD102-300 GPU and we can’t say for sure if this will be a full-fat SKU since the RTX 3090 Ti with the GA102-350 rocks the full configuration while the GA102 -300 SKU featured in the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 is a shortened SKU code.

According to Kopite7kimi, the flagship GeForce graphics card will be based on the PG137/139-SKU30 PCB. These are the reference designs and the founders version. The reference design is provided to AIBs as a reference for their custom models while the FE’s design is exclusive to the Founders Edition reference model.

The graphics card is said to maintain a memory capacity of 24 GB while providing a memory speed of 21 Gbps via the 384-bit bus interface. This is the same memory design as the flagship Ampere GeForce, GeForce RTX 3090 Ti, and should rock the same amount of bandwidth at 1004 Gbit/s. As for the power input, the card will have a single PCIe Gen 5 connector with a TGP rating of up to 600W. You’ll need a 4×8-pin to 1x-16-pin adapter if you’re running an older PSU or a single Gen 5 to Gen 5 connector if you have a compatible power supply.

The NVIDIA Ada Lovelace GPU family is expected to take a generation leap similar to Maxwell’s for Pascal. It is expected to launch in the second half of 2022 but we expect the offering and pricing to be similar to the current cards though NVIDIA Spending Billions of Dollars to Get Good TSMC 5nm Chips.
