High voltages for the NVIDIA Ada Lovelace GeForce RTX 40 GPUs are revealed: AD102 at 800W, AD103 at

Kopite7kimi has revealed the power limitations of NVIDIA''s Ada Lovelace GPUs that will be able to power the next-generation GeForce RTX 40 graphics cards. Both desktop and mobile devices are covered under the power limits.

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 Desktop & Mobile GPU Power Limits are revealed by Ada Lovelace''s AD102 Flagship Desktop Maxes out at 800W, and the Flagship Mobile AD103 Maxes out at 175W.

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 series series based on the Ada Lovelace graphics architecture will come in both desktop and mobile versions. However, several reports indicate that the flagship will include a TGP of up to 900W, but as we know, power limitations are the maximum the GPU can reach and aren''t indicative of actual TGP/TBP figures. These limitations may only be reached by highly overclocked and custom-cooled variants.

The power limits are AD102, 800W, AD103 (Mobile), 450W, AD103 (Mobile), 175W, AD104 (DT), 400W, AD104 (Mobile), 175W, AD106 (DT), 260W, AD106 (Mobile), 140W. But I think we must not use the full power cap.

The AD102, AD103, AD104, and AD106 are all coming to power limits. The main reason is that the flagship chip has far higher power requirements that the laptop platform cannot support. So the GA103 became the most advanced mobile platform.

The NVIDIA AD102 GPU will have a 800W power limit, the AD103 GPU will have a 400W power limit, and the AD106 GPU will have a 260W power limit. As for mobile components, the AD103 mobile GPU will have a 175W power limit, and the AD106 mobile will have a 140W power limit. Below the figures, the NVIDIA AD102 GPU will have a 800W power limit.

Ada Lovelace, NVIDIA''s Desktop GPUs,

  • AD102 - 800W Max Power Limit
  • AD103 - 450W Max Power Limit
  • AD104 - 400W Max Power Limit
  • AD106 - 260W Max Power Limit

Ada Lovelace, NVIDIA''s Mobile GPUs, is a proponent of the NVIDIA mobile computing world.

  • AD103 - 175W Max Power Limit
  • AD104 - 175W Max Power Limit
  • AD106 - 140W Max Power Limit

The AD102''s 800W power limit is already reasonable but the actual graphics card that utilizes it will end up with a 600W power limits on mobile and mobile devices. The AD106 is in the mainstream 260W segment and the AD104 GPUs are substantially different than that used by the desktop segment. It''s possible that some manufacturers do not want to make that extra investment right now.

Due to the power limit differences between the desktop and the mobile components, there''s once again a significant performance difference between the two NVIDIA GeForce GPU segments. Yet, we anticipate a significant increase when it comes to performance on the mobile side, while desktops take things to the next level.
