Smaller NVIDIA ADA Lovelace GPUs revealed

YouTuber Moore’s Law is Dead uncovered the pictures of the new mid-range and entry-level gaming GPUs.

We are just weeks away from a formal launch of first gaming laptops equipped with GeForce RTX 40 series, some of which are featuring yet unseen Ada Lovelace GPUs.

MLID obtained two photos of said GPUs, the AD106 and AD107 to be precise. These are to launch as RTX 4070 and RTX 4060/4050 series respectively by the end of this month.

These are no doubt small processors, even smaller than last generation. The GA106 measures 276 mm² will be succeeded by a 190 mm² processor (45% reduction in die size), while GA107 will be upgraded to AD107 GPU with a size of 160 mm², that’s 25% smaller GPU.

What has not yet been confirmed are the transistor counts for each GPU. However, given the transistor density of TSMC 4N process which is used by all five Ada GPUs, we are looking at something between 19 and 22 billion of transistors.

The AD106 GPU is said to offer up to 4608 CUDA cores and support for up to 128-bit wide memory bus. The same memory configuration will be available for AD107 processor and both will be limited to PCIe Gen 4.0 x8 interface. The smaller GPU should offer up to 3072 CUDA cores in their full implementation. Such configurations will be available with GeForce RTX 4070 and RTX 4060 Laptop GPUs.
