Earlier this year, photos of a mysterious giant NVIDIA graphics card with a thickness of four expansion slots and a non-standard PCB orientation appeared on the Internet. Then it was assumed that either the GeForce RTX 4090 Ti was flashing in the photo or, more likely, the new semi-pro NVIDIA Titan. New images of this monstrous accelerator have recently surfaced.
The photos shown in this post are from the Goofish platform, a secondary trading platform where you can find products and prototypes of products that have never been officially released. A notable feature of the graphics card shown in the photos, in addition to its gigantic size, is the unusual location of the circuit board. When plugged in, it sits parallel and not perpendicular to the motherboard, making it the first consumer graphics card to feature this unusual board layout.
It is very likely that due to its gigantic size, the graphics card is equipped with several boards at once, and one of them has a 12+4-pin 12VHPWR power connector with the ability to transfer up to 600W of power to the graphics card accelerator. It’s at the top of the accelerator. Incidentally, it is “only” one, although you would expect at least two such connections from a graphics card of this size and class.
Another notable feature of this “monster” is the panel with external video outputs. The latter are arranged vertically and not horizontally as usual, which is associated with the use of a vertical circuit board.
The cooling system itself is designed for a circuit board with the model number PG137. However, it is currently not used in any of the well-known models of the GeForce RTX 40 series graphics cards.
Whether NVIDIA really plans to release this graphics card or the prototype accelerator shown in the photos is just an experiment – time will tell.
