an image claims to show a design with three fans

Series RTX 3000 of graphics cards under Nvidia’s Ampere architecture continues to attract attention, while waiting to be officially announced later this year.

Information around GPU RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 (in principle equivalent to the RTX 3080 Ti) have already started to circulate, drafting their technical sheet, and images supposed to show the RTX 3080, with a fan and cooling on each side of the motherboard, have fueled speculation.

The site Videocardz is broadcasting an image supposed to show an RTX 3080 Ti card from the ROG Strix series from Asus. Resembling the RTX 2080 Ti ROG Strix with a few different flourishes, it shows an assembly of three fans and asks more questions than it brings.

The mention RTX 3080 Ti thus suggests that the name RTX 3090 does not exist or concerns another configuration and the design is very different from the images already broadcast.

Videocardz has updated his article, stating that it may be more of a concept showing the next generation of ROG Strix cards released during an internal presentation.

If we add the slightly smoky rumor that the RTX 3000 series is engraved in 8 nm (derived from 10 nm) at Samsung rather than 7 nm, it will be time for Nvidia to unravel the true from the false.
