New leaks for the Nvidia GeForce RTX 4080 and 4090, Team Green’s next generation of GPUs using the Lovelace architecture, have emerged that suggest these high-end graphics cards could have worrying power demands.

As revealed by Igor’s Lab (opens in a new tab)An image of the supposed PCB (Printed Circuit Board) of the AD102 GPU that these cards will use has emerged, and it looks like these new cards could have a TDP (Thermal Design Power) of up to 600W.

That’s a huge amount of power and eclipses the 350W maximum TDP of the RTX 3090 – once considered a very power-hungry card itself – requires.

Analysis: high energy consumption = bad news

The Nvidia RTX 4080 and RTX 4090 will be cards aimed at enthusiasts, where performance is the most important aspect and power consumption and price don’t matter. But if these future GPUs really require more than 600W to run, that will have big implications for many people.
