NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3080 Flagship GPU Pictured For The First Time



The first-ever picture of NVIDIA’s upcoming RTX 3080 graphics card has leaked out (via Chiphell via Videocardz). It’s officially open season for NVIDIA’s upcoming RTX 3000 series of GPUs. The company is planning to launch these cards by holiday 2020, so you should see these launch either at the virtual Computex conference later this year or around that time. Interestingly, a leaked picture from the assembly line was the first item to leak for the RTX 2000 series lineup as well.

Here are some key design consideration of the new NVIDIA RTX 3080 graphics card:

While it is hard to judge the exact direction of each fan I would assume the bottom one to be a static pressure fan while the top one throws air out in an attempt to keep air flowing through the fins.The heat sink is curved. This is a very interesting design because normally it would disrupt airflow but NVIDIA seems to be attempting a push full
