The GeForce RTX 3090 specs may have just leaked (along with the RTX 3080 and RTX 3070), detailing the hardware in Nvidia’s next generation of graphics cards. Furthermore, the GeForce RTX 3090 release date is reportedly very close.
Nvidia is undoubtedly hard at work on its next generation of graphics cards. The 2080Ti is currently the top dog, but that may soon change according to a report from VideoCardz.com — its sources say that the GeForce 30 series will be making its debut in September 2020.
According to this report, PC gamers will have the choice between a 24GB GeForce RTX 3090, a 10GB GeForce RTX 3080, or a budget-friendly 8 GB GeForce RTX 3070. Additionally, a 20GB variant of the RTX 3080 is in the works, but it doesn’t seem likely that it will launch alongside the first cards of the 30 series.
What’s so great about these cards? As the leaked GeForce RTX 3090 specs show, these are going to be pretty powerful pieces of hardware. It’s not just about more RAM and processing power, though! The leaks also state that the 30 series will support PCI Express 4.0 and 2nd Generation Ray Tracing Cores right out of the box. Naturally, all of these cards will support HDMI 2.1 and DisplayPort 1.4a adapters.
These new cards will likely be power-hungry beasts. While the RTX 3070 only requires 220W, the RTX 3080 and the RTX 3090 will need 320W and 350W of power, respectively. You’re going to need dual 8-pin connectors on your power supply to use these beefy new graphics cards.
The GeForce RTX 3090 specs are undoubtedly impressive, but when will you be able to get it? As far as we know, Nvidia is looking to officially announce these cards in early September 2020 and the cards will release sometime in the same month. There’s no firm release date for the RTX 3090 or RTX 3080 just yet, but VideoCardz.com’s sources say that the cheaper RTX 3070 will likely be launching towards the end of the month.
The next generation of Nvidia graphics cards certainly seem like they’ll be able to handle upcoming games like Cyberpunk 2077 without too much trouble! There’s a lot of data to unpack here, but do keep in mind that these leaks can’t be independently verified; as always, take them with a grain of salt.
