This Tuesday you can expecting to see some more details about nVidia’s next graphics cards direct from the source, but for now, some information leaked a bit early. As Tom’s Hardware points out, there are some tweets that claim to share official renders of Zotac Gaming cards that use the new GPU. One of those tweets it by @momomo_us that shows eight Zotac models in the new family. The pictures show an RTX 3070, a 3080 and a 3090.
This is consistent with other rumors that have been suggesting that nVidia is dropping the ‘Ti’ and ‘Super’ versions, at least during the initial launch of the GPUs. There was a report from Videocardz that mentioned the same lineup and provided detailed specs, but it was unsourced. That report, though, claims that the high-end 3090 units will have a whopping 24GB of GDDR6X memory and feature 5,248 graphics cores. That setup is expected to require at least 350W of power.
Another render via tweet shows a 3090 Zotac card that has three cooling fans. This card is huge, taking up a full three PCIe slots. A leak we saw earlier showed its massive footprint as compared to an RTX 2080. nVidia engineers have confirmed that there will be a new 12-pin PCIe power connector in an official video released by the company earlier in the week. We don’t know full specs yet, but we should find out more about them on September 1st as that is GeForce’s 21st birthday.
