Now that the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti has been released, rumors concerning Nvidia’s next generation of graphics cards have started to circulate. @kopite7kimi, an Nvidia veteran, has spilled the beans on the complete RTX 3000 Super lineup. The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 Super, for example, has 10,752 CUDA cores and 24GB of GDDR6X VRAM.
The information confirms a previous leak that said the graphics card will be rated at 400W. According to rumors, the GeForce RTX 3090 Super may employ a full-fat GA102 GPU, although this is improbable. Nvidia will most likely save those for the RTX A6000 and other workstation-grade products based on the same hardware.
Let's make a summary.
3090S 10752 24GB G6X
3080S 8960 12GB G6X
3070S 5888 8G G6X
3060S 5632 12G G6
Although I doubt the specs of some of them and the name of 90S.

The GeForce RTX 3080 Super has 8,960 CUDA cores and 12GB of GDDR6X VRAM, placing it between the GeForce RTX 3080 (8,704 CUDA cores, 10GB GDDR6X VRAM) and the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti (8,704 CUDA cores, 10GB GDDR6X VRAM) (10,240 CUDA cores, 12GB GDDR6X VRAM). According to rumors, the GeForce RTX 3080 Super will feature a brand-new GA103 GPU, but it’s also possible that it’ll stick with the cut-down GA102 seen in its brothers.
Kopite7kimi has published the alleged specifications of NVIDIA’s Ampere Refresh for desktops, also known as GeForce RTX 30 SUPER. The leaker is well-known and has previously been spot-on with numerous leaks; in fact, even SKUs that didn’t make it to retail ended up showing up in some form or another.
The issue with these specs is that NVIDIA is always experimenting with different combinations for new SKUs. Sometimes these SKUs see the light of day, and other times they are replaced by new ones. Everything is contingent on GPU manufacturing, availability, and yields. We saw numerous Ampere SKUs that were planned but never made it to sale with the GeForce RTX 30 GPU range.
NVIDIA plans to employ 70 SMs for a total of 8960 CUDA cores in the GeForce RTX 3080 SUPER. Now, there have been reports about a GA103 GPU for a time now, and the RTX 3080 SUPER might use it, but we can’t say for sure. The card will include a 12 GB GDDR6X memory module, as well as a 384-bit bus interface and faster-clocked DRAM modules.
