Nvidia’s RTX 3080 design gets stunning fan-made 3D renders

Alleged images of Nvidia’s reference RTX 3080 graphics card have appeared online, revealing an unusual dual-fan design for the company’s first Ampere-powered gaming graphics cards.  

While we do not know if this design is legitimate or not, that hasn’t stopped Reddit’s JDSP_ from treating a set of full-3D renders for the graphics card, showcasing the GPU across a variety of angles. These images do not contain the GPU’s PCB, NVLink connections, power inputs or integrated lighting, but they do showcase the aesthetic of Nvidia’s alleged cooler design in a new light. 

At this time, Nvidia has not confirmed the release date or feature set of their next-generation graphics hardware, though rumour has it that new GPU launches are planned for September. This release timeframe would make now the perfect time for early GPU designs to leak, as Nvidia is undoubtedly validating their drivers for their next-generation graphics card launches.

This heatsink design is unlike anything that we have ever seen before, leading many to declare that the design must be a fake. While the design is a little unorthodox, it is hard to know exactly how this design works in practice.  We must admit that the design is definitely striking enough to be worthy of Nvidia’s Founders Edition name, but does it have the cooling capabilities that high-end PC users demand?
