Rumors of the next gen top-of-the-line NVIDIA GPU have been flying wild. And with the company planning to reveal the Ampere lineup on September 1, the fabled GeForce RTX 3090 is an absolute unit. If it even exists.
WCCF Tech spotted pictures leaked of the supposed 3090 and shared some details on the card. The high-end GPU will supposedly use two multi-layered 12GB DRAM chips for a total of 24GB of GDDR6X. This does align with earlier rumors; don’t be fooled though, that doesn’t confirm or deny it.
Lastly, there seems to be an additional chip on this GPU. It’s not clear what it is; the leaker added an Intel logo on top to hide the details, though this may be the NVCache chip; it may well be something else entirely. With the sheer tech going into Ampere, it’s hard to guess with any level of accuracy.
The expected power output of this GPU will require three 8-pin connectors, which is more than we’ve ever seen. That power requirement will likely mean an upgraded PSU, but that’s a pretty light price to pay. I’d guess that a single GPU of this caliber, along with all other major components, would require a 650W PSU.
My take is that this GPU may be the 3080 Ti or 3090, and may just as well be the next gen Titan. Considering NVIDIA’s nomenclature for graphics cards, along with release schedules, we may not see this GPU for awhile. If it is the top-tiered card at all. Ti, Super, and other card names almost always come months after the original ones do, so don’t expect any news about them except for rumors and leaked benchmarks.
