NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 "CEO Edition" Rears its Head, Most Likely a Fake

Social media is abuzz with a screengrab of a regional webpage of the NVIDIA website purporting a "GeForce RTX 3090 CEO Edition" graphics card. Positioned a notch above the "Founders Edition," this $3,499 card, if even remotely real, could be a limited edition product. The screengrab references "48 GB of G6X" memory. We're not sure how this is even possible. The RTX 3090 already uses 8 Gbit GDDR6X chips, piggybacking two chips per 32-bit memory channel, unless Micron has done the unthinkable by launching a 16 Gbit G6X chip within 2020. Frankly, we're very interested to see how the next-gen Quadro RTX even achieves its alleged 48 GB of GDDR6.

That aside, the alloy frame now comes with a gold finish. We wonder if memory and a fancy trim is all that NVIDIA is asking the extra 2 Grand for, or if it even maxed out the "GA102" ASIC (there are two more TPCs left to unlock). As for the name "CEO Edition," there have been instances of tech CEOs flexing their vanity on limited edition products. Limited edition Ryzen and Radeon products, for example, bear the AMD CEO's signature. So the name "CEO Edition" by itself isn't implausible. Just not with these specs, and not this price.

i like the look of the reference nvidia design, they make nice looking cards, but they can be a nightmare to work on, with silly plastic hex screws, & seemingly purposefully confusing construction.

i noticed none of the early AiB 3XXX gpu's have gone with the dual sided fan set up nvidia is touting, atleast not the AiB cards that are listed now. many of them have this odd hole/passthrough cut out, from the AiB using the reference PCB's id guess.

CEO edition = " Crazy Enthusiast Overpriced " edition

This might very well be the full chip wtih 48 GB memory. aka the real TITAN RTX Ampere

USD 3499 that will be worth USD 500 when the next gen graphic appears.

If it's a fully enabled chip, it wouldn't be called 3090 (CEO or no CEO) cause that would be confusing for all customers where there are 2 different versions of the 3090. I think it's a fake.
Best bet is to wait for the actual release and all will be revealed.

Welcome to the world of technology. New here? I know it's crazy that bleeding-edge tech becomes cheaper when it's no longer bleeding-edge. Who'd a thunk it?

If it's most likely fake why post it? It's not like it's a slow news day.

I bet that AMD it does enjoy seeing NVIDIA GeForce RTX cards reputation be crashed down its new day because of the pricing.

You never know what AMD's pricing for their cards will be so maybe NV is giving hints to AMD about the pricing :)

Any homeless version coming instead of CEO? Same performance but cheaper price.

Are you suggesting that NV dropped the "Titan" naming for just 3090 and derivatives?
The titan may be dead due to naming being limited now and would be poor marketing, they could still make them but it would be stupid on their part, 3090 3090 Ti *CEO* is the best marketing decision at this point.

Why do you think the "Titan" naming is dead? I think it sounds cool and honestly if I were to pick a card (despite price) I'd rather go for Titan than "Ti" or most of all CEO. Why didn't they call it leather or jacket for instance. I think the "Titan"naming is catchy and has some sort of importance and power in it.

Holy shit! is that real gold?!?!

That's one of the few ways i can think of that would actually justify nvidia's pricing :roll:

Its overused with no real naming sku its confusing with poor marketing and they lost focus on where they stand, titan rtx ampere would sound ridiculous like the rest, besides the 2080 ti on average is better than titan rtx in games i think because they oc better, i havent stayed focused on performance since i stopped my benchmarking threads but the titan was trash at the time.

So to cut it short, 3090 will sell better and is a better marketing decision

Guys guys, this is obviously fake.

The real version will obviously have a faux leather shroud. The gold lining? Grey, for Huang's hair.

Founder's edition cards are not reference.

You know. I still think "Titan" is better but that's due to personal liking :)
Either way. It is obvious why the 2080 TI's OC better. Less cores which is more likely will OC better than something with full cores enabled. ( That was the deal with 1000 and 2000 series). It is hard to get all cores in the chip top-notch. Wonder what will the 3000 series clocks. That hasn't been revealed yet right?

we've went over this before.... yes? Watch the launch video and Jensen talking Titan and pulls a 3090 out of his oven. That same video he says 3080 is a flagship.

No idea if we'll see one down the road...

Last I checked, the CEO ed was priceless, as in "free". You just have had to be doing your research into something that would use it.

Anyhow here's mine, and I hope that it doesn't become something you can buy for obvious reasons.

Its the primary (lowest card) in the stack in the PC.


I thin the specs that surfaced are just a quadro vesion. They have a current (previous gen) quadro with 48GB already, so I would suspect, that all this is based on seeing a benchmark from the quadro spec showing 48gb on Ampere.

Another consideration is that Nvidia is using HBM on the server/DGX variant, but the bandwidth would be 4096, not 384

Nice sarcasm bro!
Pretty sure they are refering to all the vids on the tubes these days suggesting RTX2080Ti owners are all in tears over the RTX3070 …..soooo yeah.

Most likely a fake? What makes you say that?

some of these newbs would spend more just cause it says "Cyberpunk" on the side.
