NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 pictured?


Recommended Posts

Alleged pictures of the upcoming GeForce RTX 3080 graphics cards have been leaked on Chiphell. The models photographed by a leaker are clearly prototypes or engineering samples likely to be one of the many suggested designs for the final choice. The design does appear to be NVIDIA’s.

 

The card features a two-fan design with a large heatsink which might later be hidden under a shroud in a later state. We can see the RTX 3080 backplate on one of the prototypes. The blue color of the upper sample is not the color of the card, this is just a wrap of the silver metallic shroud around the card. The design is very unique, both fans are placed on opposite sides of the card pushing the air in different directions.

 

The RTX 3080 design features an irregular shaped PCB, you can see this by looking at the rear of the card. This V-shaped design has allowed NVIDIA to place the fan closer to the GPU. Some of the readers might remember a similar NVIDIA’s design for the GeForce GTX 295 reference model, it also had a cut in the PCB under the fan.

 

We can’t see any power connectors in a typical place, which could mean that the connectors have been moved to the side, so similar to Quadro models. There also appears to be a new version of the NVLink connector near the I/O bracket.

 

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 features an Ampere-based GPU. NVIDIA has not confirmed the launch date for these cards, but judging from the fact that the design has already been leaked, we are much closer to the launch than we previously expected.

Interesting, so the PCB is going to be THAT small ? Hmm not convinced. Interesting nonetheless.

Interesting design!

The PCB looks a bit too small to be honest.

Looking at some of the predecessors PCB's I think that with good usage of space they could have been a bit smaller, but not this much.

I do like the fan setup though!

From an aesthetic point of view, I actually do not mind the design. From a functional point of view, if that is a reference design, it will be interesting to see a tear down to see the entire cooler. I still think the PCB is to small, that or the card is monstrously long and that is one out of perspective shot..but I highly doubt it.

At first I thought the same thing about the perspective, but if you take a look at the PCI-E connector and use that as a reference size it's not that long.

Not much more total length than the 2080ti I have sitting next to me, and at least 1.5cm less width looking at the rear mounting bracket sitting flush with the PCB.

I'm going to say it's not going to look like that. It doesn't look like a design I think nVidia would use tbh.
