PC Builder is creating an Nvidia RTX 4090 for April and it is massive

A PC developer in Denmark dropped his own April Fools joke today by introducing the world to Nvidia’s RTX 4090 graphics card.

The gigantic monstrosity comes from Kasper Andersen, who likes to modify old PC parts into new creations. In the midst of the ongoing GPU shortage, Andersen could not help but claim that he gained early access to Nvidia’s next generation graphics card, RTX 4090.

The card mainly looks like four RTX 3090s, but all are attached together in a massive block of GPU madness. In total, it has 1

2 fans. The fake graphics card specifications include 18,000 CUDA cores (or 70% more than 3090), a 2.16 GHz boost clock speed and a whopping 48 GB of GDDR7 video memory.

To release April Fools’ joke, Andersen uploaded a video, in which he claimed that Nvidia had just announced the graphics cards in the RTX 4000 series. In the clip, he also takes a dig in the company, and notes that Nvidia claims that it produced 21 units of RTX 4090 at the time of release. “If true, it’s a huge improvement over the last generation of cards,” he says.

“The card is made of all kinds of old and defective hardware I had put around,” Andersen told PCMag in an email. “Even 4 of the fan motors on the RTX come from Pentium II processors, as they were only small enough to fit.”

However, the outer sheath was produced over a month and a half using a 3D printer. Andersen assembled and then painted the parts.

In the video, Andersen also places the huge GPU on the motherboard over the PCIe slot to run a custom graphics reference program on a PC.

We encourage you to watch the video because it is very fun when the GPU is in action. The eight fans on one side of the card are so powerful that they start pulling a nearby Pepsi box towards the PC. The airflow accelerates to the point that the RTX 4090 accidentally pulls into the connected PC monitor and crashes into the monitor. In response, Andersen literally taped RTX 4090 to the table with tape.

Andersen was not happy with building just one RTX 4090. He has also come up with the RTX 4090 Ti, an even larger GPU.
