NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090: 24 GB of GDDR6X VRAM, irregular PCB shape and 12-pin connector confirmed, no RTX 3080 Ti for the foreseeable future
NVIDIA has released a teaser video for the RTX 3000 series. Videocardz revealed a screenshot from it ahead of its release, but we included the video below too. The video confirms a few aspects about NVIDIA's upcoming Ampere cards, but leaves plenty up for debate.
Firstly, NVIDIA has confirmed the rumoured 12-pin connector, which is more compact than the current 6- or 8-pin ones. Not only will the 12-pin connector be compatible with PCIe 8-pin connectors, but NVIDIA will also include an adapter in the box.
Secondly, NVIDIA has teased the cooler design of the RTX 30 Founders Edition cards, which matches the leaks that have appeared online in the last few months. The cooler design can be seen at 2:28 minutes into the video below. There is another teaser of the cooler design at 8:10 minutes. Finally, the RTX 30 Founders Edition cards will have an irregular-shaped PCB design, as has also been leaked.
If that was not enough, then Videocardz claims to have confirmed the existence of the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090. Apparently, there will be no RTX 3080 Ti for the time being. However, the RTX 3090 will have 24 GB of GDDR6X VRAM, while 10 GB has been confirmed for the RTX 3080. The RTX 30 series will be unveiled on September 1.
