Nvidia RTX 3090 Reference Design Is Much Larger Than RTX 2080

Nvidia RTX 3090 Reference Design

Nvidia RTX 3000 series graphics cards are around the corner and will be announced in a couple of days. While we wait, we do have some mockups of the Nvidia RTX 3090 reference design that gives us an idea regarding the side of the graphics card. From what we have seen so far, the Nvidia RTX 3090 is going to be a much larger graphics card as compared to the current RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti models.

The Nvidia RTX 3090 reference design still has double fans but they are on the opposite sides of the shroud which is kind of odd keeping in mind the design of the RTX 2080.

We also have some other pictures of the graphics card next to the RTX 2080. You can check out the images below:

This appears to be a triple-slot card. From what we see this is going to be a beast. While we do not know much about the graphics card, it is going to be based on the 7nm process and will feature 24GB of GDDR6X memory. It is expected that the graphics card will feature a Memory Bus of 384 bit and Bandwidth of 912. GB/s. While there is no confirmation, the graphics card could use 3×8-pin connectors for power. 

There is an Nvidia event coming up next month. It is expected that at the event we will learn more about these upcoming Ampere graphics cards and we might even get a release date for the upcoming RTX 3000 graphics cards. It will be interesting to see what kind of performance these graphics cards will have to offer as compared to the competition and the current RTX 2000 series graphics cards.

Let us know what you think about the Nvidia RTX 3090 Reference Design card and whether or not this is something that you might be interested in getting for yourself.
