Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 4080 Allegedly Exposed

A well known leaker with a excellent observe file has printed what the consumer claims to be the primary symbol of Nvidia’s upcoming GeForce RTX 4080 Founders Version graphics card. The board (or relatively its cooling machine) turns out brand-new, however because the gadgets are packaged into an antistatic bag, now not many main points will also be observed.

Elysian Realm ((*2*)@KittyYYuko (opens in new tab)) used to be slightly correct with initial details about Nvidia’s Ampere again in March 2020 (12); now, the leaker is again with an alleged symbol of Nvidia’s upcoming GeForce RTX 4080 Founders Version board. Because the symbol comes from an unofficial supply, albeit with a excellent observe file, one will have to take it with a grain of salt. The {photograph} raises extra questions than it supplies solutions.

The very first thing that moves the attention within the image is that the board continues to make use of the design language of the GeForce RTX 30-series merchandise (that are amongst the easiest gaming graphics playing cards as of late, as a way to talk). But, every other factor that right away draws consideration is the odd font used for the ‘4080’ type quantity. It would possibly not point out that it is a faux symbol (and might suggest that the board is unique) because the font corresponds to the font Nvidia makes use of on its site, as famous by way of (*1*)VideoCardz (opens in new tab). Some other oddity is that we don’t see mounts of the bracket.

The cardboard does now not seem like anything else we have now observed prior to. The board is dual-wide (just like the RTX 3080), however it sort of feels as tall and so long as the GeForce RTX 3090/3090 Ti. It additionally has a special fan with a elegant blade design, which signifies that it is a new board, now not a GeForce RTX 30-series with a 4080 decal. In the meantime, the fan appears to be as giant because the one at the GeForce RTX 3090 (which is logical) and is thicker than the one utilized by the dual-slot GeForce RTX 3080, which is why it stands proud greater than it does at the RTX 3080.

From a prior leak overlaying Nvidia’s upcoming GeForce RTX 40-series merchandise, we all know that the type RTX 4080 is meant to be in line with the AD103 graphics processing unit, which isn’t the greatest and essentially the most power-hungry GPU within the lineup. Due to this fact, forums in line with it don’t require a considerable cooling machine flagship forums like the ones powered by way of Nvidia’s ‘giant ferocious’ GA102 GPUs (aka BFGPUs). In the meantime, AD103 is projected to be extra continual hungry than Nvidia’s GA103/104 (which is used for GeForce RTX 3080 merchandise); therefore the use of a ‘taller’ dual-wide heatsink appears to be justified.

In any case, whilst the cardboard does now not appear to be a Frankenstein created out of GeForce RTX 30-series Founders Version portions, however is one thing new. But, we can not state evidently that that is the approaching GeForce RTX 4080 board.
