Ha! Using a rumor to determine the validity of another rumor.
From my understanding, the rumor was that all models would have versions which didn't use a 12-pin connector. From my understanding, the 12-pin connector was rumored to be used by OEMs (such as HP and Dell), and may or may not also be available in some versions in the consumer retail space, but there should, according to rumor, be versions of all models in the consumer retail space which don't use a 12-pin connector.

An alleged picture of the ZOTAC GeForce RTX 3080 Ampere gaming graphics card has also leaked out over at Reddit.

Micron confirms NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 gets 21Gbps GDDR6X memory

In a technology brief, Micron has confirmed that GeForce RTX 3090 will sport memory based GDDR6X technology. Micron has supplied memory modules for GeForce graphics cards for years now, the GDDR6X partnership takes it to the next step.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 graphics card is listed on the Micron website with 12GB GDDR6X memory. Micron estimates that GeForce RTX 3090 will be able to break the 1 TB/s barrier with a bandwidth expected between 912 to 1008 GB/s. In order to achieve 1TB/s bandwidth, the graphics card would require a clock speed of 21 Gbps and a memory bus of 384-bit (21*384/8). The speed is clearly not yet set for the NVIDIA SKU, but it should be between 19 and 21 Gbps.
It has been long speculated that the new high-end NVIDIA graphics cards might feature GDDR6X memory, however, not a single memory manufacturer confirmed it until now. This was not the case with GDDR6 memory, which was announced much sooner.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 is expected to feature GA102-300 GPU with 5248 CUDA cores, however, this part of the specifications has not yet been confirmed. While Micron claims that the RTX 3090 would launch with 12 GB GDDR6X memory, we have also seen numerous leaks featuring 22, 20, and even 16GB configurations.
Micron GDDR6X is the world’s fastest graphics memory, delivering legendary performance to help driveray tracing, shadow mapping and silky-smooth animation for an immersive PC gaming experience.
In Summer of 2020, Micron announced the next evolution of Ultra-Bandwidth Solutions in GDDR6X. Working closely with NVIDIA on their Ampere generation of graphics cards, Micron’s 8Gb GDDR6X will deliver up to 21Gb/s (data rate per pin) in 2020. At 21Gb/s, a graphic card with 12pcs of GDDR6X will be able to break the 1TB/s of system bandwidth barrier! Micron’s roadmap also highlights the potential for a 16Gb GDDR6X in 2021 with the ability to reach up to 24Gb/s. GDDR6X is powered by a revolutionary new PAM4 modulation technology for Ultra-Bandwidth Solutions. PAM4 has the potential to drive even more improvements in data rate.
The new information would therefore confirm:
  • Next-generation GeForce RTX series are codenamed “30”
  • The flagship model is indeed called GeForce RTX 3090
  • NVIDIA GeForce RTX series will have GDDR6X memory
  • RTX 3090 would sport 21 Gbps memory modules with bandwidth up to 1 TB/s

A guy I know told me, that he heard it from a girl who heard it from another guys housekeeper that her boss said that a guy he works with knows it is actually going to have 20 ARM microprocessors on the new cards....

I don't get why everyone's buying into this. Unless they're retiring the Titan nomenclature for the "3090" ...there's no way they go back to sticking 2 GPUs on a PCB. It didn't work back then, it isn't going to work now, especially with most developers skipping SLI support altogether...
I still despise seeing WCCFTech used as a source for rumors. They're a clickbait website that posts crap after crap just to generate views.

5248 cuda cores with 12gb memory is the flagship? I don’t think so.

rtx3090 comes straight out of Microns own papers


ram configuration could have and may have changed,...since this brief was made at an earlier development time

I really can't wait for the release of RTX 3070 Ti, I have been saving up for this.
2020/08/14 14:02:29
I'll wait till there's some GPUs with Samsung memory on there because that's just my preference.  Nothing wrong with Micron.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 ‘Ampere’ Graphics Cards Rumors: RTX 3090 24 GB, RTX 3080 20 GB, RTX 3070 16 GB , Double The Ray-Tracing & DLSS Performance Over Turing

The exact core and SM count is not confirmed but recent rumors have highlighted that Ampere will introduce a major change to the SM design such as doubling of the FP32 units which would result in improved ray-tracing performance however the FP32 units aren't indicative of the core count. It suggests that NVIDIA has made a massive change to its ALU, allowing for a wider and denser chip design that offers twice the FP32 throughput.
  • NVIDIA Titan - 48 GB GDDR6X
  • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 - 24 GB GDDR6X
  • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 - 20 GB GDDR6X
  • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 - 16 GB GDDR6X
  • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 - 12 GB GDDR6X
The rumor from Baidu Forums also points out the performance metrics of the cards. Here, the GeForce RTX 3090 is said to be operating at 1900 MHz at standard load and hits around 2.0 GHz when loaded up in 3DMark Time Spy Extreme. It is stated that the custom variants can hit clocks around 2100 MHz which is similar to where the existing RTX 20 series high-end cards end up. In graphics performance, the RTX 3090 scores around 10,000 points with existing drivers but new revision would boost the performance to hit scores of up to 11,000-11,5000 points. This points to a 50-60% increase in performance over an overclocked RTX 2080 Ti graphics card.
3DMark Time Spy Extreme 'Rumored' Performance Numbers:
  • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Founders Edition - 10,000 Graphics Score
  • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Founders Edition - 9,000 Graphics Score
  • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Founders Edition - 7,300 Graphics Score
  • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Custom - 11,500 Graphics Score
  • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Custom - 9,700 Graphics Score
  • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Custom - 7,800 Graphics Score
