Zotac was the first company to leak its entire line of GeForce RTX 30 series Ampere GPUs prior to the launch, which involves three GeForce RTX 3090, three GeForce RTX 3070 and two GeForce RTX 3070, that is, a total of 8 models that will be launched on the market in September 2020.
The launch of a new range of graphics cards does not depend only on Nvidia. The brand must surround itself with manufacturers to build the cards surrounding the GPU, and most often add a home cooling system. The latest leaks come from one of these partners. Zotac first, which published a little too early the list of its new products, with official images as leaked by Momomo_US.
Here is the list of cards in question:
- Zotac GeForce RTX 3090 AMP Extreme
- Zotac GeForce RTX 3090 Trinity HoLo
- Zotac GeForce RTX 3090 Trinity
- Zotac GeForce RTX 3080 AMP Extreme
- Zotac GeForce RTX 3080 Trinity HoLo
- Zotac GeForce RTX 3080 Trinity
- Zotac GeForce RTX 3070 Twin Edge HoLo
- Zotac GeForce RTX 3070 Twin Edge
Regarding the information, everything was focused on the GeForce RTX 3090 Trinity HoLo, which is cooled by a huge aluminum radiator crossed by 7x copper heat pipes, which appear to be 8 mm thick, and all this backed by a configuration of triple fan with a new design increasing the airflow by 10 percent over its predecessor.
This GPU also has an aluminum backplate to improve temperatures and reinforce the PCB, an RGB LED lighting system, and is powered by a configuration of 2 x 8+8-pin PCI-Express connectors, remembering that the 12-pin connector would be exclusive to Nvidia Founders Edition models.
The end of 2020 is particularly awaited by the players. Of course, there is the launch of new consoles like the PS5 or the Xbox Series X, but the PC platform will also experience a generational change. We are waiting for the announcement and the release of AMD RDNA 2 graphics cards and of course the next GeForce from Nvidia based on the new Ampere architecture.
Nvidia has already given us an appointment on September 1 to officially announce the GPUs listed above.
