Enthusiast Kasper Andersen built the “video card” as an April Fool’s joke
Original publication in The Verge
Kasper Andersen, 20-year-old Danish, decided to build the NVIDIA RTX 4090. The enthusiast recreates homemade replicas of old graphic cards, but on April 1st he decided to present his vision of the future: a video card that uses 1,000 watts of power, has 12 fans and includes 48GB of VRAM.
Home video is a work of art. After introducing the colossal RTX 4090, Kasper connects it to the computer to perform benchmarking tests. As soon as you connect the video card, the table starts to shake and a can of soda dances across the table until it falls to the floor.
To complete the joke, the testing equipment spins on the table and breaks the monitor screen. But not everything is lost! Because the RTX 4090 will perform much better than the GeForce RTX 3080, or at least that’s what Andersen imagines.

To finish the video we have a taste of RTX 4090 Ti with 8 GPUS in SLI (Scalable Link Interface), which synchronizes the use of two or more cards on a single video output, and best of all? This whole apparatus occupies only 4 PCle lines.
Andersen does an interesting job of recreating old models on Captain’s Workspace. In addition, sometimes he decides to play a similar game, as was the case with Intel Car Eiffel 6500, which costs a mere $ 1000, and allows use as a CPU or GPU with the press of a single button.
Jokes aside, while video card prices are expected to increase in 2021, we continue to follow the news and the first information leaked about the first laptops with support for Ray Tracing and DLSSl equipped with GeForce RTX 3050 with 2048 CUDA cores and GeForce RTX 3050Ti with 2560 CUDA cores.
