Alleged images of NVIDIA’s TITAN ‘Ada’ graphics card, which is supposed to feature a full AD102 GPU Moore’s Law is Dead.

NVIDIA TITAN ‘Island’ Graphics Card Pictured: Allegedly A Quad-Slot Monster With Dual 16-Pin Connectors

It was earlier this year reports NVIDIA is said to be working on a TITAN-class graphics card that will feature the AD102-450 GPU. Rumors and speculations have pointed to the card being simply insane when it comes to its basic configuration and design. Now, MLID has released what it says is the “first real image” of its now-canned “TITAN Island” graphics card. But before that, let’s take the cover off again and see what the card will be set with.

NVIDIA TITAN Island Graphics Card ‘Rumoured’ Specs

according to Kopite7kim, the next-generation NVIDIA TITAN graphics card based on the Ada Lovelace GPU architecture would feature the AD102-450-A1 GPU, rocking 142 SMs on 18,176 CUDA cores. The graphics card is said to be equipped with 48GB of GDDR6X memory running on a 384-bit bus interface. Given that the RTX 4090 can already randomly reach 2.8-2.9 GHz boost frequencies, the card had to break the 100 TFLOP barrier, and so it would with the TITAN.

The card is said to use higher-end 24 Gbps GDDR6X memory modules, delivering up to 1,152 TB/s of VRAM throughput to the GPU. This is a 14% increase in memory throughput compared to the current RTX 4090 flagship, which has a memory throughput of 21 Gbps. When it comes to power consumption, the new NVIDIA TITAN would be insane with twice the TDP of the RTX 3090 Ti rated at up to 900W. The leaker reported that the test board for this configuration has dual 12VHPWR 16-pin connectors.

Now Moore’s Law Is Dead The “Real” image shows a cover design similar to the existing RTX 40-series Founders Edition graphics cards, but with the dual 16-pin connectors hinted at in previous rumors. The card carries the same silver-gray colors, but renders by MLID feature gold accents with the Titan logo embossed on the card’s exterior and also shimmering in Gold. The graphics card has a two-fan flow design, but since there are two 16-pin connectors, it requires at least eight 8-pin connectors as an adapter or two 16-pin direct connections to an ATX 3.0 PSU to run it.

Some NVIDIA RTX 4090 AIB cards already do this, so it wouldn’t be a surprise to see dual 16-pin connectors on a card of this level. GALAX’s HOF RTX 4090:

It’s an absurd design for sure, but it’s possible that NVIDIA could have reduced each 16-pin requirement to just 3 16-pin plug connectors, as they could still feed up to 450W per connector and up to 900W if required . The RTX 4090 already has a 600W Power Limit in the Founders Edition variant, but it never touches the fact that the actual power numbers at stock and in-game average below 400W.

This is the current state of the TITAN Ada graphics card cancelled but it will reappear later in the form of the RTX 4090 Ti, which is sure to be a knight. It remains to be seen when that will happen, but we’re confident that the RTX 4090 will dominate as the fastest graphics card on the planet for some time.
