Power Consumption Figures For AMD’s RDNA3 & NVIDIA’s Lovelace GPUs Surface

NVIDIA unveiled their Ada Lovelace architecture last month while announcing the RTX 4090 along with the 4080 12/16GB. AMD is aiming at the 3rd of November to showcase their RDNA3 GPUs. Today, as pointed out by momomo_us the Enermax PSU calculator has listed the alleged power consumption numbers for these GPUs. 

Ada Lovelace

Across all 4 hypothetical test systems, we have the i9-12900KF paired with 2x32GB of DDR5 memory. Do note that we already know the power consumption of the RTX 4090 and the 4080 16GB/12GB.  This makes calculating the TDP of the 4070 and the 4060 much easier.

Since, the RTX 4090 has a TDP of 450W, the rest of the system consumes about ~400W.  

  • RTX 4090 -> 850W – 400W= 450W
  • RTX 4080 16GB – > 720W – 400W = 320W
  • RTX 4070 -> 680W – 400W = 280W
  • RTX 4060 -> 600W – 400W = 200W

These numbers are either a rough estimate or official figures. All in all, the TDP increase from generation to generation is quite visible.

RTX 30001706.25%22025.71%
RTX 200016033.33%17516.67%



Moving over to AMD, we see almost similar numbers as compared to NVIDIA. The power difference again remains at 400W.

  • RX 7950 XT -> 820- 400W= 420W
  • RX 7900 XT– > 730W – 400W = 330W
  • RX 7800 XT-> 700W – 400W = 300W
  • RX 7700 XT-> 600W – 400W = 200W

This listing confirms the existence of an RX 7950 XT, which will probably have 2 variants. One with the full fledged Navi31 GPU and the other with X3D cache. Maybe AMD will combine the best of both worlds into a single GPU. On a generation-generation comparison, Navi32/Navi33 appear to be much more efficient than  Navi22/23. Although, Navi31 may just be AMD pushing the limits to beat the RTX 4090/4090 Ti.
