Lenovo Lists "GeForce RTX 3070 Ti" with 16GB GDDR6 Memory

Lenovo has allegedly listed an unreleased NVIDIA GeForce "Ampere" graphics card as an option for its Legion T7 gaming desktop. The specs sheet speaks of a "GeForce RTX 3070 Ti" with "16 GB of GDDR6" memory, in what may be the first of many future product stack refreshes NVIDIA has planned. No other specs of the RTX 3070 Ti have been mentioned, but the doubling in memory size foreshadows a similar treatment for the RTX 3080. Currently, the RTX 3080 is being released with 10 GB of GDDR6X. The flagship RTX 3090 has 24 GB of it. There is a vast gorge in the new product stack, between the $700 RTX 3080 10 GB, and the $1,500 RTX 3090 24 GB, which is ripe for a possible "RTX 3080 Ti" with 20 GB of memory, among other features.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ampere Bare PCB Pictured

Here are some of the clearest pictures of an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 "Ampere" Founders Edition PCB, albeit bare (components not yet placed). The PCB goes in this form to another production line, where a PCB placer machine with reels of components places them along both sides. We can still make out quite a few things. To beign with, there are six high current traces near where the 12-pin Molex MicroFit power connector goes in.

NVIDIA seems to have utilized both sides of the PCB effectively. The card features traces for a mammoth 20-phase VRM. The obverse side has the chokes and DrMOS, the reverse side has the capacitors. Twelve memory pads for the 384-bit wide GDDR6X memory interface surround the GPU pad. There are pads for four display output connectors, which could be a mixture of DisplayPort, HDMI, or even USB-C VirtualLink. The PCB still has its spacers on, which will be cut out after component placement, after which the PCB heads for testing and product assembly. NVIDIA is expected to announce the GeForce RTX 3090 Ampere at an online event later today.

Gainward GeForce RTX 3090 and RTX 3080 Ampere Pictured, Slides Confirm Specs

A mega dump of the Gainward GeForce RTX 3090 Phoenix GS and RTX 3080 Phoenix GS reveal not only the common board design of the two cards, but also the final specs of the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090. The RTX 3090 features 5,248 CUDA cores, and 24 GB of 19.5 Gbps GDDR6X memory across a 384-bit memory bus, which belts out 936 GB/s of memory bandwidth. The Gainward Phoenix GS runs the RTX 3090 at 1725 MHz boost frequency. The RTX 3080, on the other hand, features 4,352 CUDA cores, and 10 GB of 19 Gbps GDDR6X memory across a 320-bit memory bus, with 760 GB/s memory bandwidth. Gainward is running the RTX 3080 at 1740 MHz on the Phoenix GS.

What's interesting is the board power figures put out by Gainward. The RTX 3090 typical board power (at least for the Phoneix GS), is rated at 350 W, while that of the RTX 3080 is rated at 320 W. These explain why we're seeing custom-design RTX 3090 cards with either three 8-pin PCIe power connectors, or in case of the Founders Edition card, the 12-pin connector that's capable of 600 W power delivery. Many of the custom-design RTX 3080 cards we've come across have two 8-pin PCIe inputs. The slides also list out "2nd generation RTX technology," and "3rd gen tensor cores." Gainward's board features a meaty triple-slot, triple-fan cooling solution that has RGB LED illumination. We predict Palit's cards to look very similar to these (with different cooler shroud designs).

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 and 3080 Specifications Leaked

Just ahead of the September launch, specifications of NVIDIA's upcoming RTX Ampere lineup have been leaked by industry sources over at VideoCardz. According to the website, three alleged GeForce SKUs are being launched in September - RTX 3090, RTX 3080, and RTX 3070. The new lineup features major improvements: 2nd generation ray-tracing cores and 3rd generation tensor cores made for AI and ML. When it comes to connectivity and I/O, the new cards use the PCIe 4.0 interface and have support for the latest display outputs like HDMI 2.1 and DisplayPort 1.4a.

The GeForce RTX 3090 comes with 24 GB of GDDR6X memory running on a 384-bit bus at 19.5 Gbps. This gives a memory bandwidth capacity of 936 GB/s. The card features the GA102-300 GPU with 5,248 CUDA cores running at 1695 MHz, and is rated for 350 W TGP (board power). While the Founders Edition cards will use NVIDIA's new 12-pin power connector, non-Founders Edition cards, from board partners like ASUS, MSI and Gigabyte, will be powered by two 8-pin connectors. Next up is specs for the GeForce RTX 3080, a GA102-200 based card that has 4,352 CUDA cores running at 1710 MHz, paired with 10 GB of GDDR6X memory running at 19 Gbps. The memory is connected with a 320-bit bus that achieves 760 GB/s bandwidth. The board is rated at 320 W and the card is designed to be powered by dual 8-pin connectors. And finally, there is the GeForce RTX 3070, which is built around the GA104-300 GPU with a yet unknown number of CUDA cores. We only know that it has the older non-X GDDR6 memory that runs at 16 Gbps speed on a 256-bit bus. The GPUs are supposedly manufactured on TSMC's 7 nm process, possibly the EUV variant.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Surfaces on Userbenchmark, Rocks 19Gbps Memory Clock

NVIDIA's second fastest "Ampere" graphics card to launch this year, the GeForce RTX 3080, surfaced on the Userbenchmark database. Hardware Leaks (aka @_rogame) fished out several juicy details about the card that will be positioned right below the flagship RTX 3090 (RTX 2080 Ti successor) that's been in the news lately. The RTX 3080 succeeds the RTX 2080. On the Userbenchmark database, the purported RTX 3080 is shown bearing a device ID "10DE 2206." Among its readable specs leaked are a GPU frequency of up to 2.10 GHz, possibly frequency capped just like "Turing," and 10 GB of GDDR6X memory across a 320-bit wide memory interface, and a memory clock speed of 19 Gbps (GDDR6X effective), which works out to 760 GB/s of memory bandwidth.

Micron Confirms Next-Gen NVIDIA Ampere Memory Specifications - 12 GB GDDR6X, 1 TB/s Bandwidth

Micron have spilled the beans on at least some specifications for NVIDIA's next-gen Ampere graphics cards. In a new tech brief posted by the company earlier this week, hidden away behind Micron's market outlook, strategy and positioning, lie some secrets NVIDIA might not be too keen to see divulged before their #theultimatecountdown event.

Under a comparison on ultra bandwidth solutions, segregated into the GDDR6X column, Micron lists a next-gen NVIDIA card under the "RTX 3090" product name. According to the spec sheet, this card features a total memory capacity of 12 GB GDDR6X, achieved through 12 memory chips with a 384-bit wide memory bus. As we saw today, only 11 of these seem to be populated on the RTX 3090, which, when paired with specifications for the GDDR6X memory chips being capable of 19-21 Gbps speeds, brings total memory subsystem bandwidth towards the 912 - 1008 GB/s range (using 12 chips; 11 chips results in 836 GB/s minimum). It's possible the RTX 3090 product name isn't an official NVIDIA product, but rather a Micron-guessed possibility, so don't look at it as factual representation of an upcoming graphics card. One other interesting aspect from the tech brief is that Micron expects their GDDR6X technology to enable 16 Gb (or 2 GB) density chips with 24 Gbps bandwidth, as early as 2021. You can read over the tech brief - which mentions NVIDIA by name as a development partner for GDDR6X - by following the source link and clicking on the "The Demand for Ultra-Bandwidth Solutions" document.
