Leaked Nvidia RTX 3080 and 3090: Photos and Specs
The leak comes from two separate video card manufacturers.
Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 appeared in unexpectedly serious leaks, when graphics card images were leaked from two manufacturers at once, as well as the alleged characteristics of the video cards, along with RTX 3070 images.
Gainward and Zotac have been the source of the leaks, with Phoenix graphics coming with detailed specs on the RTX 3080 and 3090, Videocardz clarifies.
The leak not only confirms the naming, which is clearly marked on the box, but also allows us to know that the GPUs are based on a 7nm process, while the 3080 and 3090 models from Gainward have a 2.7-slot design with three fans, although it is assumed the giant Nvidia Founder Edition is even bigger.

In terms of specs, the RTX 3090 gets 5,248 CUDA cores (which is in line with early rumors) with a whopping 24GB of GDDR6X video memory at 19.5GB / s and a power draw closer to 350W.
With the RTX 3080, the offer will be 4,352 CUDA cores, 10 GB of GDDR6X video memory (19 Gb / s) and a consumption of 320 W (a version with increased video memory is expected later).
Gainward plans to release the RTX 3090 at 1725 MHz and the RTX 3080 up to 1740 MHz. Remember that we cannot take these leaks with cast iron certainty like any other leak, but at this point the performance looks convincing (and is in line with previous assumptions).
| YES RGB WILL COME
The leaked Zotac images feature the RTX 3080 and 3090, as well as the 3070 graphics card, but the manufacturer also showed off the Trinity HoLo 3080 and 3090 models (along with the simple Trinity, which lacks RGB, and the AMP Extreme version), they are 3-slot graphics for three fans, like Gainward video cards.

The Zotac RTX 3070 graphics card will be a smaller dual-fan configuration (RGB and non-backlit versions).
Also note that the leaks show an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 with potential NVLink SLI support, which means you’ll be able to combine two graphics cards for monstrous performance (although the cost of two such graphics cards will undoubtedly reach astronomical numbers).
The new Ampere graphics cards are planning to support PCIe 4.0 and come with second generation ray tracing cores – previously there were rumors of significant performance improvements for the new RT cores. In any case, the release of new graphics is not far off, we will soon find out the official details, because the big presentation of Nvidia is expected on September 1st.
Here are the best graphics cards.
