Skepticism about new gaming video cards after leak

In recent weeks, rumors have abounded about the upcoming graphics card series for Nvidia based on the Ampere architecture. Since September 11, Nvidia has posted a picture of old video cards in a countdown to September 1, which will probably be the date for the launch conference of the RTX 30 series.

On Wednesday, Nvidia presented a video feature on the technology in their video cards, and showed, among other things, an upcoming 12-pin power cable that the next generation will benefit from. It’s been a while since this information was leaked, but this is the first official from Nvidia’s page. One also sees a small hint of one of the new video cards.

Now the website has show the specifications of some of the new cards. The website is known for being accurate with its leaks, but we do not have anything tangible yet. names «SKU A, B and C».

RTX 3090 and RTX 3080 are expected to launch during September on a 7-nanometer node, a halving from the Turing architecture. RTX 3070 will also possibly come during September, without there being any leaks if the card is at 12 or 7 nm.

Expensive flagship

After a somewhat lukewarm launch of the RTX 20 series in 2018, there are high expectations attached to the second generation with DLSS and beam tracking – this time with support for PCIe 4.0.

The GeForce RTX 3090 is rumored to be the flagship of the generation, with 5248 cuda cores and 24 GB of GDDR6X video memory on a 384-bit memory bus. The power requirement is a hefty 350 watts, which is monologically more than the previous generation.

There is talk that this card can cost up to 2000 dollars, but exactly what the price will be we will have to wait and see. knows that it will be significantly more expensive than previous cards, and that it is most likely a card in the same segment as some of the first GTX Titan cards.

Fans disappoint with RTX 3080 and 3070

The GeForce RTX 3080 comes with 4352 cuda cores and 10 GB of GDDR6X video memory on a 320-bit memory bus. The fact that the card comes with just under 10 GB of video memory has created some debate on forums like reddit, as this is less than what both the RTX 2080Ti and GTX 1080Ti have (even though it is not the same type of video memory). On the other hand, it is expected that there will be a variant of the RTX 3080 with 20 GB of video memory after a quarter.

The RTX 3080 itself will pull 320 watts out of the wall without overclocking, which is perhaps even more startling than what the RTX 3090 does. The previous generation of the 80 series required no more than 215 watts.

Last is the GeForce RTX 3070, with 8 GB of GDDR6 video memory on a 256-bit bus. TGP (“Total Board Power”) – the requirement is expected to reach 220 watts., for example, has no more information about the card.
