A series of fan-made renders of the upcoming Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 have been published online shortly after the revelation of a photo of the alleged reference design hit the news headlines. The Ampere-based RTX 3080 looks very different from the designs utilized for the GeForce 20 series.
Daniel R Deakin,

Hot on the heels of the publication of an alleged Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card reference design, we now have a whole selection of fan-made concept renders of the upcoming Ampere card that offer a potentially closer look of what the final product might look like. VideoCardz has collated a group of renders from artists that all show the now-distinctive irregular board shape and dual-fan build.

An animated render of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card by AmigoDesigns (see below) offers the most thorough look at the board. While general opinions on the design seem to be mixed, ranging from “ugly” to “love this”, it at least appears that Nvidia has focused on innovation in terms of appearance rather than just copying what worked from the GeForce 20 series.

VideoCardz opines that the final design of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 may differ slightly but likely not by too much. Cooling seems to be the name of the game with the overall design of the RTX 3080, hinting at some serious processing performance. With a dual-fan construction and heat-sink fins to be seen everywhere, overclockers could end up having a field day with the Ampere series upon release, which is expected in September after a possible initial August unveiling.
