EVGA exited the enthusiast GPU market in September. (Source: JayzTwoCents)A scrapped EVGA RTX 4090 FTW3 has damaged quilt. According to hands-on footage from tech YouTubers Gamers Nexus and JayzTwoCents, the maintain of the board is an evolution of the RTX 3090 Ti FTW3 with three 100 mm fans accountable for cooling the AD102 chip powering the GPU.
EVGA leaving the GPU trade was titanic information for the graphics trade in general and Nvidia GeForce enthusiasts in particular. Ahead of the company determined to exit the AIB GPU market, it had been a lengthy-time partner of Team Inexperienced with a slew of memorable GeForce boards beneath its belt. Unsurprisingly, it has now reach to the surface that EVGA was deep in the pattern of its GeForce RTX 40 sequence cards as a prototype RTX 4090 FTW3 has made its way to the hands of some tech YouTubers.
Tech YouTubers JayzTwoCents and Gamers Nexus unbiased lately debuted the canceled GPU. Labeled the “EVGA Subsequent Gen Graphics” with a familiar “FTW3” badge, the exterior of the board lacks any mentions of the exact GPU mannequin. Upon disassembling the card, Gamers Nexus (GN) uncovered a Qualification Sample (QS) Nvidia AD102 chip, confirming that it is miles certainly an RTX 4090.
EVGA’s RTX 4090 FTW3 is substantially larger than the RTX 3090 Ti FTW3. Nevertheless, as shown by GN, EVGA has managed to back the overall footprint smaller than many other RTX 4090 AIB objects. To be exact, the card is 12.5 inches lengthy, 2.85 inches deep, and 5.2 inches tall. Curiously, EVGA build the harsh 12VHPWR connector off to the aspect, theoretically making cable management easier.
With regards to cooling the GPU, the RTX 4090 FTW3 makes use of three 100 mm fans to pump air over a considerably dense fin stack. The AD102 GPU dumps heat into a vapor chamber which transfers energy to the fin stack thru 8 mm thick copper heat pipes. All in all, the cooling solution on reveal appears to be a sturdy one.
Whereas we gained’t rep to examine the ultimate gaming performance of the EVGA RTX 4090 FTW3, JayzTwoCents did build the GPU inside a PC. The YouTuber managed to overclock the board to over 3 GHz, at
