The GeForce RTX 4090 is one of the best graphics cards out there, but it may not be the best the Nvidia Ada Lovelace architecture has to offer. According to YouTube channel Moore’s Law is dead (opens in new tab) (MLID), Nvidia has a trump card: Titan RTX Ada. Of course, this is just a rumor, so any information or renderings should be taken with a healthy dose of salt (at least a few spoonfuls).
It’s been a while since Nvidia launched a Titan product. The last Titan was the 2018 Turing-era monster graphics card, the Titan RTX, with an MSRP of $2,499. Nvidia appeared to ditch the Titan brand with Ampere in favor of offering the RTX 3090 instead, but if the rumors are true, it may return with the Ada Lovelace. shared a rendering of It claims to be the product of an actual photo I own.
Let’s stop here for a minute.if someone has Photo If it’s a product, why share rendering of the product? (yes, “must protect the source!”) Still, render is far, far It’s easy to fake, and we’ve already seen some meme renderings of future Nvidia GPUs. But if true, the Titans of the future look comically gigantic.
The GeForce RTX 4090 is already pretty big, but based on these renders, the Titan RTX Ada blows it out of the water. A render shows a quad-slot graphics card with the same Founders Edition cooler aesthetic as Nvidia’s current RTX 4090 and RTX 4080 offerings. Additionally, the PCB may be “sandwiched” with a thick plate behind the graphics card to aid cooling. The Titan RTX Ada will likely feature 48 GB of his GDDR6X in split mode, with Nvidia placing the memory modules on both sides of the PCB (i.e. similar to the RTX 3090 and previous Titan cards).
The render also shows the Titan RTX Ada proudly sporting a gold finish. This is a feature of previous Titan RTX graphics cards. With rumors claiming that the Ada Titan could be a 650W graphics card reaching 700W with manual overclocking, a quad-slot cooling system would probably be needed.
Nvidia uses the AD102 die for various Ada SKUs, including the GeForce RTX 4090 and RTX 6000 Ada. Measuring 608mm², the AD102 houses 144 streaming multiprocessors (SMs). The GeForce RTX 4090 has 128 effective SMs and the RTX 6000 Ada has 142 SMs. So it looks like there’s enough room for a GeForce RTX 4090 Ti, Titan RTX Ada, or both. Only (allegedly) takes full advantage of the AD102 silicon.

A full AD102 die means Titan RTX Ada can utilize 18,432 CUDA Cores, 576 Tensor Cores, and 144 RT Cores. We don’t know the clock speeds, but they could be in the 2.5-2.7 GHz range, similar to other 40-series GPUs. Also, the GPU seems to be equipped with 48GB GDDR6X. That’s double that of the GeForce RTX 4090. Now that Micron is mass-producing 24 Gbps GDDR6X modules, the Titan RTX Ada will have double the capacity and possibly more bandwidth.
The GeForce RTX 4090 features 21 Gbps GDDR6X memory and a 384-bit interface to deliver 1,008 GB/s of memory bandwidth. Assuming the Titan RTX Ada runs a 24 Gbps GDDR6X module, it theoretically delivers 1,152 GB/s, 14% more than the GeForce RTX 4090.
The GeForce RTX 4090 is a 450W TDP graphics card that pulls what it needs out of a single 16-pin power connector (12VHPWR). If the leaked renderings are accurate, Nvidia could provision two 16-pin power connectors on the Titan RTX Ada. However, having two connectors is not recommended as there are many cases where the connector and his Nvidia adapter melt on his GeForce RTX 4090.
The leaker claims Nvidia hasn’t decided on an official launch date for the Ada Titan, so we don’t expect it to hit the market any time soon. I am letting you. Perhaps he’s waiting to attempt a powerful move with RDNA 3 before AMD unleashes the beast, or maybe he’s waiting for Spring GTC (GPU Technology Conference).
Pricing is also unknown, but given the overpriced GeForce RTX 40 series graphics cards, we wouldn’t be surprised if Nvidia put a $2,999 price tag on the future Titan Ada. This was also the price of the Titan V. Titan RTX launched after all, at $2,499, and that was four years before him. Professional RTX 6000 Ada cards are currently in the $7,500-$10,000 range, so it wouldn’t be surprising to see a 3 grand for a “prosumer” alternative.
Will we actually see a resurgence of the Titan brand? Because Nvidia seems to prefer the more expensive professional cards with a big gap between the GeForce models (RTX 4090 and previous 3090/3090 Ti) and the equivalent professional cards (RTX A6000 and current RTX 6000 Ada) , we are still skeptical. But if there’s one thing Nvidia has taught us over the years, it’s that they like to keep their options open. Consumer cards already sell for over $2,000, so there’s no reason not to launch a faster model that raises the price by 50%. Don’t pretend it’s for games.
