It looks as if NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card, along with its new logo design for the numeric portion, has seemingly been confirmed by way of leaked pictures of the Zotac. To be precise, the leaked images show off not only the new logo, but multiple units of the AiB partner’s cards and their new cooler aesthetics.
The custom-cooled RTX 4090 in question is part of Zotac’s AMP EXTREME Airo line, and first popped up on the radar via the China-based forums, Baidu, but has since been deleted. Compared the brand’s previous generation GeForce cards, this one clearly shows off an all-new cooler design; instead of a sharp, angular, pixel-looking motif, the shroud and heatsinks model a new rounded look at both ends, giving them a slightly more bubbly outlook.
Unfortunately, neither one of the pictures are able to give us a good look at the new 16-pin microFit Molex PCIe Gen5 power port, but as Videocardz points out, there’s actually enough room to fit two of those connectors into the spine of the card. On another note, if you look closely at the card, you’ll also see that the RTX 4090’s PCB is shorter than the heatsink, the latter exceeding the length of the former by more than a third.
More to the point is the packaging of the Zotac RTX 4090’s, which actually confirms NVIDIA’s decision to use an entirely new font, thus replacing the older, blockier font used for several generations with one that sports slimmer, if not thinner borders.
Beyond that, the pictures offer no further details or specifications of the RTX 4090. We can see from the back of the box, however, that this Zotac-based card uses the brand’s IceStorm cooling technology, as well as Spectra 2.0 RGB lighting technology. Further, there’s also Zotac’s Firestorm technology.
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 is expected to make an appearance during the GeForce Beyond broadcast taking place this 20 September during the GPU brand’s annual GTC conference. Specs-wise, the card is said to be based on the AD102 GPU, have 24GB GDDR6X graphics memory, and 16384 CUDA cores out of the box.
