Being honest here, if this is how it will look, it's awesome. Adopting a no nonsense approach, clearly 3080 is going to be a power hungry beast, but cooling is going to need to be stepped up. Looks like Nvidia are doing a Fermi all over again but i reckon that thing will remain under control with temperature and not be that loud.

I'm curious as to how well that top/bottom fans setup's gonna compare to the standard one sided dual fan one.

rtx 3080 is backwards i think. also, the fan blades are melded onto the side... so unless the whole fan spins... yeah im betting these are fake actually. see that gray? that fan can't spin boys. :roll:

def looks like a 3d printer. the metal parts tricked me though.

It's very possible that this front/rear fans setup is more efficient than the classic one-sided fans setup, hence they'd like to implement it for the first time.
If it's worse, why bother at all ?

Let's hope this is relatively slow
actually let's you hope that and the rest don't.

we've come so far that there's coolers that can keep vega 64 quiet on air,and that's a 280w card.

this is actually a very cool design the more i think on it. hmm. hope this is legit. i hope both ampere and big navi come out in september, looks like that is what is coming. going to be a glorious month boys!!! w1zz better have the reviews rockin' in September cause i need to know what to click buy on. if gamersnexus says driver stability issues again with his big navi review i guess im going to roll the 3080

This looks fake as hell and also the card is far too early - rumors have it pinned at Q4 2020 which is at the very least three months away. OEMs mustn't even have the chips at this point.
True but with all the news of Big Navi ,this traditional Pr release by Nvidia is mostly to remind people it is on the way, I quite like the look of it, also appears to be a novel but possibly effective method of cooling tbf.

Damn that is a weird design, fans on both sides. I wish Nvidia would go back to using blower coolers on reference cards instead of second rate alternatives that are worse that all the AIB cards but don't work in workstations anymore.
If you take a second look you'll see the two fans have different blade designs, one is airflow optimized and the other is pressure optimized.

That die and VRAM layout looks unrealistically close to the display outputs. There would be no room for the circuitry necessary to make the outputs work unless they're doing something exotic.
They might have found a way to put the VRM on the back even with the odd shape. I'm not fluent enough in electronics to know hard it would be to do so though.

like the look. hbm as ram would make the card small as an option. interesting fan and fin design for cooling

This design is essentially what Sapphire has been doing for ages with its cards where the cooler is longer than the PCB. For example:

52b.jpg

52a.jpg


...except that the second fan is on the reverse side of the card, exhausting air from the heatsink. I seriously doubt NVIDIA's approach has any advantages over what Sapphire did with the above card.

So there's no fancy push-pull tunnel magic happening. It's just like that sapphire card, with the second fan on the other side, blowing outward.

If legit, less VRAM than an RTX 2080 Ti with similar specs. Performance should be around RTX 2080 Ti, too.

nVidia is the Intel original of the GPU market. Except that Intel will soon join too.

That is reference, FE design, so no worries, there will be proper AIB other designs.

It's from some "guy on the internets" so I wouldn't read too much into it.
That said, I don't think it's too hard to make a V shaped VRM layout.

Not a good look for a new flagship to just about keep up with 2-year old Ti, if you'd ask me. Why'd you hope for this? It should comfortably beat a 2-year old card. Another generation of +10% sounds rather bad to me.
2020 is about damn time stable 4k@60 become achievable on a sub-1000$ card. I hope it's faster than Ti.

how can you tell performance ?
new 80s always beat old 80Ti's with less cuda.sometimes by a lot when there's a new node.1080 > 980Ti by 25%

I think you got that back to front. Exhaust would be the fan by the bracket, since the hot air should be vented out of the case, no? Also, that fan has no other real direction to blow the air. The rear fan would make more sense if it blows the air through the heatsink on the opposite side, no?

Ugly as all get out, I can't believe Nvidia would make something that ugly, has to be fake!
As suggested elsewhere, it's most likely one of several prototypes in testing.

Nah man, Nvidia is going to pull an Intel this year and give us 3-5% performance increase in games, but triple the real time ray tracing performance :p
