Nvidia is reportedly launching the RTX 40 series this fall. Per numerous leaks, the RTX 40 boards will be based on the AD102 (RTX 4090), the AD103 (RTX 4080), the AD104 (RTX 4070), the AD106 (RTX 4060), and the AD107 (RTX 4050) GPUs. Hardware leaker Greymon55 has now revealed an image showing how an AD102-based RTX GPU might look like.

Last week, we reported that Nvidia may be preparing an RTX 4090 Ti with an over-the-top cooler design. The rumor came to us courtesy of Greymon55. Now, the leaker has obtained an image of an Nvidia GPU with three fans and a basic design. Per Greymon55, the card is labeled as an RTX 4090 Ti which the leaker has blurred to protect confidential information.

Explaining further, Greymon55 thinks that the board in question is an engineering sample featuring a fully-enabled AD102 GPU. This is where things get a little confusing. Based on past leaks, a fully-enabled AD102 supposedly has 18,432 CUDA cores for a total of 103.22 TFLOPS. These were previously thought to be the rumored specs of a new RTX TITAN. However, according to serial leaker Kopite7kimi who has a stellar track record, the mystery RTX 40 board depicted by Greymon55 features a custom implementation of the AD102 GPU and a 600 W TDP.

Now the question is: if this is a custom version of an RTX 4090 class GPU, why is the design so barebones? Greymon55 suspects the design is so basic because the card is an engineering sample as "the reference version should not be designed so simple".

Whether the card is an RTX 4090, an RTX 4090 Ti, or an RTX TITAN, we’ll soon know for sure, as we are allegedly only a few months away from the launch of the RTX 40 series boards.
