With Nvidia’s upcoming GeForce RTX 4090 nearing its reported release window, the rumor mill is abuzz and has been working a little extra to provide PC enthusiasts every bit of inside information.
This time, it has brought forward a report from an ever-reliable leaker, who has an almost faultless history of being accurate when it comes to shedding light on upcoming GPUs.
According to a tweet from kopite7kimi, as spotted by Tom’s Hardware, Nvidia RTX 4090 GPU could feature 24 GB of GDDR6X RAM on a 21 Gbps memory clock.
This means that the upcoming flagship card will supposedly arrive with the same memory configuration as the RTX 3090 Ti, the most powerful card right now.
In addition to this, the credible leaker also revealed that the mid-range RTX 4070 would carry 12 GB of VRAM on a 12 Gbps clock and went on to say that both the cards will make use of the Ada Lovelace architecture.

Previously, we reported that the RTX 4090 could require a whopping 600W of power - a figure that’s a lot higher than what PC enthusiasts are accustomed to. But with other rumors suggesting that Nvidia RTX 4090 Ti would demand as much as 900W, the regular 4090 suddenly doesn’t seem that bad in comparison.
While the next era of GPU is indeed heading towards an exciting epoch if the rumors are to be believed, Nvidia is yet to confirm any of them, and there might be a more exciting turn of events in store for us.
Thankfully, we wouldn’t have to read everything with a pinch of salt for a very long time as Nvidia will likely launch its next-gen GPU line-up later this year.
NVIDIA Corporation is an American multinational technology company incorporated in Delaware, based in Santa Clara, California. They design graphics processing units (GPUs) for the gaming and professional markets, as well as system on chip units (SoCs) for the mobile computing and automotive market.
