Recently, a so-called RTX 3090 ‘Ampere’ board has been released on Reddit, which reveals a graphics card with a tightly integrated memory chipset and a seemingly novel SLI bridge. Nvidia plans to unveil its “latest innovations in games and graphics” on September 1 and will present its next generation of graphics products to the world. These new products will most likely be the RTX 3090 ‘amp‘ series.
Nvidia RTX 3090, a picture of the circuit board of this graphics card appears
The memory surrounding these graphics cards is supposedly GDDR6X, and although the picture below clearly shows 11 DRAM chips, there is supposedly a 12th chip located between the die of the GPU and the PCIe slot of the graphics card.
With 11 or 12 DRAM slots, it is likely that this graphics card will use 1 GB 2 GB DRAM chips to provide 11/12 GB or 22/24 GB VRAM capabilities.
The graphics card shown below appears to be a custom model with three 8-pin PCIe power connectors. The filterer claimed that this graphics card was a “Colorful Vulcan” model with a large heat sink and a PCIe 4.0 interface. According to rumors, the graphics card is also said to have 5248 CUDA cores, which is much larger than Nvidia’s RTX 2080 Ti, which has 4352 CUDA cores.
It was also reported that there is an external chip on the back of this graphics card. The purpose of this alleged chip remains unknown.
