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.
 
NVIDIA's new RTX 3080 features a very cyber-punk yet whimsical design whose inspiration I can't seem to put a finger on. I for one love the symmetric and futuristic looking shape (the graphics card isn't actually blue by the way, that is just the packaging film on it. It is still very much polished metal). The materials used seem to be very high quality although I cannot tell from the picture whether the edges used are still aluminum like the RTX 2080 or the company has reverted back to plastic.
 
Here are some key design consideration of the new NVIDIA RTX 3080 graphics card:
  1. The fans are bi-directional. One fan has an open-intake at the bottom while the other has an open-intake at the top. 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.
  2. 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 configuration which would rely on pressure differentials to keep the air flowing and might work wonders with this design philosophy.
  3. The PCB is irregularly shapes and ends when it touches the heatsink. In the image below, only the grey plastic part of the RTX 3080 houses the PCB, the fan section does not. This confirms previous rumors that had indicated a small and irregular shaped PCB for NVIDIA's upcoming Ampere GPUs.
  4. This is almost certainly a Founder's Edition (if NVIDIA still wants to call these that) GPU. A design like this would be incredibly hard to tool and machine and AIBs would almost certainly prefer to go with their traditional Heatpipe and triple fan designs if NVIDIA allows them. Unless we see some form of packaging with NVIDIA supplying these parts (not going to happen) what you are looking at is almost certainly a founders edition run in limited quantity (and very high MSRP).
According to rumors the RTX 3080 will ship with a GA104 GPU, and replace the existing RTX 2080 with 48 SMs (3072 CUDA cores). This is very slightly more than the RTX 2080 at 46 SMs. Coupled with higher performance throughput and improved RTX cores you are looking at a significant performance increase if this turns out to be true - in fact, it is estimated to be just slightly less in performance than the RTX 2080 Ti current generation flagship. The RTX 3080 GPU will be coupled with 8GB/16GB of vRAM and a 256-bit bus width.
 
While there is no word on pricing yet, we have a feeling NVIDIA will take a much more lenient approach with MSRP (at the very least for the custom AIB parts) this time around as compared to Turing considering the fact the former was very slow to gain traction due to its large price tag. The company is also shifting to the 7nm process with the Ampere series so it will have access to significant cost savings - some of which it should pass on to consumers.
 
Personally it still looks like an engineering sample to me.

    That heatsink and fan configuration is super weird. I can't make any sense of it. There must be an air tunnel down the middle. Why such an odd approach? And the small PCB with a triangle cut out? So weird.

    Unless it's a half length board with heat pipes coming to the back fan idk how this would work. Maybe the front one is dedicated to vrms?

    Geeze Nvidia finally starts making decent dual fan cards then they loose their mind the very next gen.

    The design is different but it looks nice to me.  The thickness is alarming.  It looks like a triple-slot card from the start.  Having a fan on the front and back is different, but could work in a single card rig.  I am always hesitant with Nvidia on price, as they never seem to lower it and always go for the most cash they can get.  The comment about the cost of 7nm is not something that typically makes to the consumer for them.  Looking forward to the release though.

    Looks legit to me and glad were already at this stage.  I don't think it will be '2020 Holiday' when these are released but prior unless of course they are calculating any possible delays from this god awful year.  Maybe your typical release in Aug, Sept, Oct timeline but I guess we'll have to see.
     
    I'm a bit dissapointed to hear that the 3080 will be slightly slower than the 2080 Ti, apparently.  I get this is pretty much the norm but they made it sound like these GPUs were different and much faster for less.  That's good news for those on a lesser budget because what's been said makes me believe the prices will be much less since the performance gaps isn't as large as once thought, presumably speaking.

    I disagree. Both blow in. The only reason they look different is because they are counter-rotating (which makes a lot of sense in order to increase efficiency and reduce the creation of a vortex). Because they are both blowing in, and because the design of the heatsink creates many fins which would otherwise be blocked from airflow, that's why I said that there must be an air tunnel through the middle.

    Edit: I take back the "tunnel" idea. Changed my mind. Back one just blows straight through from the back to the front of the card through a simple -- but complex looking -- heatsink stack attached to heat pipes. Front one acts like a blower fan and is directed into the base of the v-shaped heatsink fine channels.

    Interesting design🤔

    Those who abuse power, are nothing but scumbags!
     The challenge of power is how to use it and not abuse it. When you abuse it, it reverses on you and it hurts you.The abuse of power that seems to create the most unhappiness is when a person uses personal power to get ahead without regards to the welfare of others, people are obsessed with it. You can take a nice person and turn them into a slob, into an insane being, craving power, destroying anything that stands in their way.

    Well.. kudos for trying something new and innovative, hope it works. I guess blower style coolers are a thing of the past now, which is sad for those who have compact builds that don't need all that heat dumped inside the case. I'll be waiting for a Ti with AiO cooler, or maybe I'll go back to a custom water loop since it's been quite a few years since I last ran one. As mentioned by others, previous rumors on the 3080 hinted at very significant performance increases, so I too was thinking the 3080 would see at least a small performance increase over the 2080Ti, but this latest 'news' thinks otherwise.

    Those are very thick, and the inverted fan is super weird. Am sure the aftermarket coolers will by typical... just hope the performance is there, because I want to see some insane jumps in folding PPD and raytracing. 


    Have water, will cool.

    yeah, that is some gawdy blue plastic right there...
     
    Hopefully the final will be a better color & vendors will put a much better look on to them.

    That blue better be anti-scratch pull off packaging material or that looks gross for color.

    "... (the graphics card isn't actually blue by the way, that is just the packaging film on it. It is still very much polished metal)."

    So the intake is from the bottom and exhaust is from the top🤔
    One fan focusing taking the heat out of the gpu while the other focus on the pcb🤔

    Those who abuse power, are nothing but scumbags!
     The challenge of power is how to use it and not abuse it. When you abuse it, it reverses on you and it hurts you.The abuse of power that seems to create the most unhappiness is when a person uses personal power to get ahead without regards to the welfare of others, people are obsessed with it. You can take a nice person and turn them into a slob, into an insane being, craving power, destroying anything that stands in their way.

    I'm not sure, looks like BOTH are configured as intake fans. The fan near the 8pins as a general suction for the board and a dedicated intake directly above the GPU.
     
    Then exhausts out the back. 
     
    That's my take anyway.
