The Gigabyte RTX 4090 lineup should include five AORUS and six standard variants. These include liquid and air-cooled variants such as AORUS Xtreme, AORUS Master, AORUS Elite, Gaming, Eagle, and Windforce 3X. These include:
Gigabyte GeForce RTX 4090 AORUS XTREME WATERFORCE (GV-N4090AORUSX W-24GD)
Gigabyte GeForce RTX 4090 AORUS XTREME WATERBLOCK (GV-N4090AORUSX WB-24GD)
Gigabyte GeForce RTX 4090 AORUS XTREME (GV-N4090AORUS X-24GD)
Gigabyte GeForce RTX 4090 AORUS MASTER (GV-N4090AORUS M-24GD)
Gigabyte GeForce RTX 4090 AORUS ELITE (GV-N4090AORUS E-24GD)
Gigabyte GeForce RTX 4090 GAMING OC (GV-N4090GAMING OC-24GD)
Gigabyte GeForce RTX 4090 GAMING (GV-N4090GAMING-24GD)
Gigabyte GeForce RTX 4090 EAGLE OC (GV-N4090EAGLE OC-24GD)
Gigabyte GeForce RTX 4090 EAGLE (GV-N4090EAGLE-24GD)
Gigabyte GeForce RTX 4090 WINDFORCE 3X OC (GV-N4090WF3OC-24GD)
Gigabyte GeForce RTX 4090 WINDFORCE 3X (GV-N4090WF3-24GD)
Apparently, each card will come in clocked and non-clocked flavors. Light the name suggests, the AORUS Xtreme Waterforce is an AIO liquid-cooled variant while the AORUS Xtreme Waterblock will be featuring a custom water block for custom-loop enthusiasts.
The rest of the cards will be standard air-cooled designs in triple or quad-slot form factors. These will be some of the largest graphics cards ever made for the PC desktop segment.
NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 4090 uses 128 SMs of the 144 SMs providing 16,384 CUDA cores. The GPU will have 96 MB of L2 cache and 384 ROPs. The clock speeds are not confirmed yet but considering that the TSMC 4N process is being used clocks should be between 2.0-3.0 GHz.
The GeForce RTX 4090 is expected to have 24 GB GDDR6X capacities that will be clocked at 21 Gbps speeds across a 384-bit bus interface. This will provide up to 1 TB/s of bandwidth which is the same as the existing RTX 3090 Ti graphics card.
As the power consumption is concerned, the TBP is said to be rated at 450W and the TGP may be a bit lower. The card has a single 16-pin 600W connector. Some 500W+ custom designs are expected.
The RTX 4090 launches on 22 October 22 and should be shown off at NVIDIA's GTC keynote later this month.
