Information regarding NVIDIA’s next-generation graphics cards belonging to the RTX 3000 series was expected to come up in the following week, sometime around Tuesday. However, it looks like a certain amount of information related to the same has already surfaced online. According to Tom’sTom’s Hardware, a couple of tweets have popped up from a couple of users who have said that Zotac has put up some details concerning the NVIDIA graphic cards. These cards have been designed based on Ampere architecture.
A Twitter user named @momomo_us has provided images of about eight models that have been designated as RTX 3070, 3080 and 3090.
The GEForce RTX 3080 and GEForce RTX 3090 families consist of three entities each. The graphics cards belonging to these groups arrive in the Trinity, Trinity HoLo, and AMP Extreme variations. The AMP Extreme graphics cards are the best-they come in the best-binned silicon and the best factory overclocks.
The GEForce RTX 2070 designs are composed of the Zotac Gaming GeForce RTX 2070 Twin Edge and GeForce RTX 2070 Twin Edge HoLo. Based on these cards’ naming conventions, one can guess that these cards would consist of two fans for cooling purposes.
This update seems to tally with other reports stating the absence of Ti/Super Variants at the launch. A Videocardz report also stated the same models as stated above and also their in-depth specification details. According to Videocardz, about 24GB of GDDR6X memory is expected to be present within the GEForce RTX 3090 cards. It would help in receiving bandwidth of about 936GB/s. It would also be composed of 5248 cores. The power requirement for these cards would be 350W, owing to which, two 8-pin power-connectors are connected to the custom boards.
The GEForce RTX 3080 consists of 4352 CUDA cores and is equipped with 10GB of GDDR6X memory, reports Videocardz. It would be having a maximum bandwidth of 760 GB/s. Its TGP is expected to touch 320W. Likewise, the GeForce RTX 3070 comes with 8GB of GDDR6 memory. The memory speed is expected to be 16Gbps, and its TGP is 220W.
Another Twitter user has put up renders of a 3090 Zotac card equipped with three-fans supposedly present for cooling purposes. It also consists of three PCI slots. Previously, the image of this 3090 Zotac card had popped up, in which it was quite big compared to the RTX 2080 at present. Simultaneously, engineers from NVIDIA have also revealed the latest 12-pin PCIe connector design in a video that had come sometime this week.
Users will get to know these cards’ specifications much better and in more detail in the upcoming days. An event has been scheduled on September 1, where NVIDIA would be unveiling all of its graphics cards. One has to see what all these Ampere-based graphics cards have in store. In any case, these cards are the successors of the RTX 2000 GPUs. The event has been organized to rejoice 21 years of GeForce tech.
