630 W is a record. Colorful RTX 4090 iGame Neptune is the most powerful GeForce RTX 4090 with record consumption

Different manufacturers have presented different versions of the GeForce RTX 4090 video card. This applies to different parameters, including consumption. So, there are models with TGP (Total Graphics Power, consumption of the entire video card under load) up to 500 W (for example, Zotac), there are versions with TGP up to 600 W (Founders Edition, Asus ROG Strix or Gigabyte Gaming). But Colorful went the farthest.

The first reviews of the Colorful RTX 4090 iGame Neptune 3D card with a liquid cooling system appeared on the Web, and as it turned out, the maximum TGP level of this model is 630 W – more than any other GeForce RTX 4090.

The iGame Neptune is based on the iGame Vulcan PCB (the same one that set four records in 3DMark), but the frequency is slightly higher: 2640 MHz versus 2625 MHz.

There are two BIOS systems in this model. The default is a 550W TGP setting, but you can enable the BIOS with a 630W TGP setting if needed. Actually, for this reason, Colorful recommends using a 1 kW power supply with a video card.

Interestingly, the jump from 550W to 630W doesn’t have much of an effect on performance: the result in 3DMark Time Spy Extreme improved by a mere 0.7%.

A couple more interesting remarks regarding the work of iGame Neptune itself. So, even with a maximum of 550 W, the card, according to the NVIDIA PCAT monitoring system, consumes only 470 W. At the same time, due to the liquid cooling system in idle mode, the consumption of the card is quite high – 47 watts.

The GeForce RTX 4060 and Radeon RX 7600 will have something that the GeForce RTX 4090 and Radeon RX 7900 XTX don’t have. They will receive support for PCIe 5.0

The GeForce RTX 4060 and Radeon RX 7600 will have

The latest flagship graphics cards from Nvidia and AMD do not support the PCIe 5.0 interface, but it may appear in simpler graphics cards. According to the latest data, models with AMD Navi 33 and Nvidia AD 106 GPUs will receive PCIe 5.0 support.

The GeForce RTX 4060 and Radeon RX 7600 will have something that the GeForce RTX 4090 and Radeon RX 7900 XTX don't have.  They will receive support for PCIe 5.0

The most likely production models based on these GPUs are the Radeon RX 7600 and GeForce RTX 4060, respectively. Both will be released next year, presumably, their debut may take place at Computex 2023, which starts on May 30. Full support for the interface is out of the question – for these models, eight PCIe 5.0 lanes will be enough.

The evaporation chamber is not exclusive to the GeForce RTX

Official sales of AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX and Radeon RX 7900 XT 3D accelerators should start soon, so video card manufacturers are gradually starting to stir up interest in new products. So, the video teaser published by the developers well demonstrated the features of the Sapphire Radeon RX 7900 Nitro (obviously, there will be versions of both XTX and XT).

Most importantly, in this model, as in all GeForce RTX 4090s, there will be a vapor chamber. It will remove heat from both the GPU and the memory chips at the same time. Other components of the cooler are standard for the flagship model – a huge heatsink, three fans.

Other features of the Sapphire Radeon RX 7900 Nitro include three 8-pin auxiliary power connectors, a 20-phase power subsystem, and a slightly modified circuit board.

What video card is needed for such a screen BOE

BOE is working on the industry’s first 600Hz LCD panel. The network got frames from the official video, which demonstrates a laptop with a similar screen.

What video card is needed for such a screen?  BOE showed a display with a frame rate of 600 Hz

Details are at a minimum. It is known that the screen diagonal is 16 inches with an aspect ratio of 16:10. The laptop itself is based on one of the GeFoce RTX video cards.

Such a screen, by itself, will be aimed at gaming laptops. But it is still completely unclear when it will appear in production models. For example, BOE showed a 27-inch 500-Hz display back in January, but so far such monitors have not appeared on the market.

On the other hand, you need to understand that the increased frame rate of the screen is good when the number of frames per second in a particular game corresponds to this frequency. And to achieve 600 fps is possible only in fairly old or very simple games from a graphical point of view when using very productive video cards.
