Hardware leaker MEGAsizeGPU (opens in new tab) has shared a photograph of a mysterious quad-slot cooler for one of Nvidia’s upcoming GeForce RTX gaming graphics cards. However, the jury is still out whether it’s for the rumored GeForce RTX 4090 Ti or Titan RTX Ada, which will eventually arrive to compete with the best graphics cards.
The cooler boasts a gold theme, implying it’s probably the Titan RTX Ada. The I/O bracket features four display outputs stacked vertically. It’s the first time we’ve seen such a design from Nvidia. It implies that the chipmaker is likely placing the PCB in a vertical orientation for the mysterious graphics card, which has been christened “The Beast.” Therefore, the PCB won’t be perpendicular to the motherboard like your conventional graphics card. Instead, the PCB will be in a parallel position to the motherboard. Given the vertical design, it’ll be interesting to see how cooling manufacturers develop water blocks for the graphics card.
