NVIDIA is all set to unveil the next generation of GPUs on September 1, but the full specifications of the cards have leaked already. The leak includes the GeForce RTX 30 series GPUs RTX 3090, RTX 3080, and RTX 3070.
The leak, once again, comes from Videocardz and lists the specifications of the upcoming Ampere-based GPUs. It says that these new cards feature 2nd Generation Ray Tracing cores and 3rd Generation Tensor Cores. They’re also said to come with HDMI 2.1 and DisplayPort 1.4a as well as a new NVLINK connector.
Additionally, these cards will be made with a 7nm process, which could either be the TSMC or the Samsung process.
GeForce RTX 3090 will come with the GA102-300-A1 GPU, with 5248 CUDA cores or 82 SMs. It will have a boost frequency of up to 1695 MHz.
The 3090 will get up to 24 GB GDDR6X memory with speeds of up to 19.5 Gbps, taking the total bandwidth up to 1 TB/s. The GeForce RTX 3090 will have a total graphics power (TGP) of 350W. Other rumors point to a $1399 US price tag.
The leak says the GeForce RTX 3080 will come with the GA102-200-KD-A1 GPU. It will have 4352 CUDA cores in 68 SMs with clock speeds going up to 1710 MHz.
The card will get up to 10 GB GDDR6X memory, but we will be seeing many vendors offer a 20 GB frame buffer at higher prices. The leak reports the bandwidth figures as 19 Gbps, totaling up to 760 GB/s.
Lastly is the RTX 3070. It is said to feature the Ampere GA104-300 GPU. The core count could be between 2944-3072, and a TGP of 220W. The leak also says it will come with 8 GB of GDDR6 memory. The bandwidth figures are being listed as 16 Gbps, with a total of 512 GB/s of bandwidth.
All these specifications are apparently not from the reference cards, but custom vendor cards. As such, there will be variations. In terms of release, the RTX 3090 and RTX 3080 will be available in September 2020. The RTX 2070 is being said to arrive later in October.
