Nvidia RTX 3090 Founders Edition PCB leaks

Today, we have gotten our first look at a bare Nvidia RTX 3090 PCB, confirming that Nvidia’s new RTX 30 series graphics cards will feature a new and unorthodox design.  

Here, we can see the scale of Nvidia’s RTX 3090 Founders Edition, as it is clearly taller than a standard PCIe slot in height, and features a cooler design which extends beyond the length of the PCB. We can see that the RTX 3090 will feature a large die size, and support up to 12 GDDR6X memory modules and that the PCB supports dual-sided memory. 

At the base of the graphics card sits a PCIe 4.0 x16 slot, and at the top, we can see Nvidia’s new NVLINK/SLI connectors. These SLI protrusions will be exclusive to Nvidia’s RTX 3090 graphics cards, making multi-GPU support a feature that’s exclusive to the ultra-high-end market. 

Nvidia plans to reveal its RTX 30 series later today as part of a “Geforce Special Event” live stream. This stream can be viewed here at 5 PM BST.

Below are the leaked specifications of Nvidia’s RTX 3090 and RTX 3080, both of which are due to be announced today. Note that there is more to a GPU architecture than clock speeds and CUDA core counts. Architecture matters, and you can be sure that Nvidia has more to offer than a simple boost in CUDA core counts.
