New specifications for the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090, RTX 3080 and RTX 3070 graphics cards have been filtered out. They would use a 7 nm node, up to 350 W, 24 GB VRAM, and 19.5 Gbps GDDR6X speed.
The new NVIDIA GeForce RTX Ampere introduces the second generation of Ray Tracing and the third generation of Tensor Cores. The new cards will also support PCI Express 4.0 and Ampere will also support HDMI 2.1 and DisplayPort 1.4a connectors.
GeForce RTX 3090
The all-new GeForce RTX 3090 features the GA102-300 graphics processor with 5248 CUDA cores and 24GB of GDDR6X memory on a 384-bit bus. This results in a maximum (theoretical) bandwidth of 936 GB/s. The custom cards will use the required double 8-pin connectors as the card has a TDP (Total Power Consumption) of 350 W.
GeForce RTX 3080
The second beast, the GeForce RTX 3080, has 4352 CUDA cores and 10 GB of GDDR6X memory. This card will have a maximum bandwidth of 760 GB/s thanks to a 320-bit bus and a memory speed of 19 Gbps. This model has a 320W TDP, and two 8-pin connectors are also required for custom models.
It is worth mentioning that some manufacturers are also preparing a second version of the RTX 3080, which will be equipped with double the memory (20 GB). However, this model has yet to be announced (TBA), so it would be introduced later.
GeForce RTX 3070
Last but not least, one of the most popular graphics cards of the current generation, the GeForce RTX 3070. Like its big sisters, this model will be on the market at the end of next month, and we can confirm that this model has 8 GB of GDDR6 memory (non-X), an estimated memory speed of 16 Gbps and a TDP of 220 W. The CUDA core specifications have not yet been confirmed.
The information tables that came out mention that the manufacturing node for all three cards is 7nm, although this has yet to be confirmed.
The new line of amp graphics cards is expected to be announced at a digital event on September 1, hosted by NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang.
