Last month, Gigabyte introduced the GeForce RTX 40 series graphic boosters on the Ada Lovelace architecture in Aorus and Gaming OC. Now, a video map of GeForce RTX 4090 Aorus Xtreme Waterforce, which is much more compact than the giant RTX 4090 Master, was announced with a massive 360-millimeter RTX.
The new GeForce RTX 4090 Aorus Waterforce is a GeForce RTX 3090 Ti Aorus Waterforce clone with minor changes. The video map is based on an updated printed board and, of course, a more powerful AD102 graphic processor. You can also see the updated GeForce RTX logos, but otherwise it seems to be the same design. The RTX 4090 Aorus Waterforce design is so similar to the RTX 3090 Ti that even the back-cut plastic for the NVLink interface is present here, although it is not in RTX 4090.
The new liquid cooling system consists of a large copper water unit, a 460 mm flat tube and three 120 mm fans mounted on a 360 mm radiator, one of which is a simple installation that does not require the organization of non-standard LSOs.
There is one 12+4-point distribution for power. On the side surface of the video card, there is another GeForce RTX logo. GeForce RTX 4090 Aorus Waterforce from Gigabyte will supplement a number of other models of liquid-cooled video maps, such as Colorful iGame Neptune and MSI Superim X Liquid. The 360-millimeter external radiator is only available in Neptune, but the serial production of this model has not yet begun.
The launch date of the Gigabyte RTX 4090 Aorus Xtreme Waterforce and the retail value of the video card are not yet known.
