There Season 3 of the eighth year of Rainbow Six Siege is here and with it some new features, such as a new operator and a new model for quick games. Among the various functions introduced, there is one that allows you to choose the graphics card when our PC hosts more than one, for example an iGPU flanked by one NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 Ti. Yes, you read that correctly.
As you can see from the image, Ubisoft included in the sample screen the name of the graphics card, which NVIDIA never revealed (but didn’t deny either). We reported on the latest rumors about a new top-of-the-line model at the end of last month and They suggested that NVIDIA should scrap an improved variant of its top-of-the-line product.
On X (formerly Twitter) kopite7kimi, a leaker who has proven himself reliable several times, claimed that NVIDIA had ruled out a new flagship for the Ada Lovelace series and would already be working on the next generation, the hypothetical one GeForce RTX 5090.
However, how we wrote at the presentation of the GeForce RTX 4090, the AD102 chip in the above graphics card does not appear in its complete form. NVIDIA’s current flagship features 16384 CUDA core e 128 RT core while full resources reach i 18432 CUDA core e 144 RT core.
It’s clear that it could be a simple typo, especially considering that in the example image the selected resolution ends at Full HD and the refresh rate a 60Hza configuration that wouldn’t cause problems for cards significantly below the GeForce RTX 4090.
However, a rather curious fact remains: that a developer secretly requests a more powerful GPU from NVIDIA for his gaming computer?
