Nvidia RTX 4090 photo looks fake, but other leaks are stoking excitement

Nvidia’s big ‘GeForce Beyond’ event happens later today at GTC, and it’s widely expected that we’ll see Lovelace GPUs, with further hints dropped in a trailer on YouTube – and we’re certainly strongly anticipating the appearance of the RTX 4090, plus there’s been an apparent sighting of the flagship graphics card.

However, that leaked image shown by VideoCardz (opens in new tab) has all the hallmarks of fakery. The pic shows CEO Jensen Huang holding a supposed RTX 4090 graphics card (Founders Edition, made by Nvidia itself), but Huang is in much softer focus than the card itself, and it really looks like the 4090 has been superimposed on top (possibly using an old launch PR shot).

Also, the graphics card looks like it’s floating in front of him, too, with none of his fingers visible around the edge of the board. In short, we’re pretty certain this isn’t authentic, so it’s one to discard in our books.
