Nvidia’s RTX 4080 Founders Edition and AD103 GPU Pictured

Posted on

Renowned leaker @KittyYYuko has published the first images of printed circuit board of Nvidia’s upcoming GeForce RTX 4080 Founders Edition graphics card as well as the company’s AD103 graphics processor. While PCB of the GeForce RTX 4080 FE resembles PCB of the GeForce RTX 4090 FE, there are significant differences between the two designs.

Just like the designs of Nvidia’s Founders Edition graphics cards are similar, so are the designs of the company’s printed circuit boards, since they use similar cooling systems. Designs of the GeForce RTX 4080 FE and GeForce RTX 4090 FE PCBs are similar too, and both boards use the same 12VHPWR auxiliary power connector. But since the former board is rated for 320W of  graphics power, whereas the RTX 4090 FE has a power consumption of up to 450W, the RTX 4080 FE has fewer power stages as well as fewer capacitors. Also, because the AD103 GPU features a 256-bit memory interface while the AD102 processor has a 384-bit memory bus, the RTX 4080 FE uses fewer of Micron’s GDDR6X memory chips.
