NVIDIA RTX 40 with 900W cooler?

According to the Chiphell post, this cooler was supposed to be used for RTX 40 series with a peak power at 900W.

With the cancelation of TITAN Ada GPUs, one might only wonder how much bigger the cooler would have to be. There were rumors that NVIDIA could be working on 800W Ada GPUs, but thus far nothing has confirmed those rumors. Until now, it seems.

The leaker says that this was a cooling design for 900W NVIDIA GPU. That’s of course a peak power, so the actual TDP could be much lower. The leaker has other photos, but only some of them were published. With the number of X-shaped frames made, one can assume that this is not a troll post, but a real quad-slot design that was considered at some point.

It looks like the 900W cooler would have a different heatsink altogether. Interestingly, the fins would not be angled but straight, parallel to the card PCB. Furthermore, the cold plate is placed on a side, so would that mean the PCB is also rotated by 90 degrees? Or this is just additional cooling for something else?

Although it seems unlikely, it would be great if NVIDIA explained what is being shown in these photos. It’s a fascinating design, for sure. Although, we can hardly see how anyone could fit this massive cooler inside their case.
