[VideoCardz] Rumoured pictures of 3080 - Possibly fake or early abandoned 3D printed prototype

Quote:
Alleged pictures of the upcoming GeForce RTX 3080 graphics cards have been leaked on Chiphell. The models photographed by a leaker are clearly prototypes or engineering samples likely to be one of the many suggested designs for the final choice. The design does appear to be NVIDIA’s.

The card design features a two-fan with a large heatsink likely to be hidden under a shroud, we can see the RTX 3080 backplate on one of the prototypes. The blue color of the upper sample is not the color of the card, this is just a wrap of the silver metallic shroud around the card. The design is very unique, both fans are placed on opposite sides of the card pushing the air in different directions.

The RTX 3080 design features an irregular shaped PCB, you can see this by looking at the rear of the card. This V-shaped design has allowed NVIDIA to place a fan pushing the air through the PCB, without extending the size of the card. This is a similar approach as to GeForce GTX 295 model, which also had a cut in the PCB near the fan.

We can’t see any power connectors in a typical place, which could mean that the connectors have been moved to the side, like on Quadro models. There also appears to be a new version of the NVLink connector near the I/O bracket.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 features an Ampere-based GPU. NVIDIA has not confirmed the launch date for these cards, but judging from the fact that the design has already been leaked, we are much closer to the launch than we previously expected.

Pretty sure they're fake, seeing as how that's not got the fin design of a radial fan and outer edge being completely enclosed stopping air getting push out to the heatsink. Then the only part of the supposed heatsink that would get air is just around the fan, the rest is completely cut off.

And THEN, they go and glue the rear io bracket on different ends! The top card has the io bracket PCI fingers and in the right orientation but the hsf back to front, then one on the bottom looks like they've put the hsf on the back of a PCB and moved the Io bracket up.

Nice try, but sloppy. Really really sloppy.

EDIT: ok so it turns out I'm blind and I didn't see the PCI finger was at the top of the card on the bottom one.

So there are 2 fans on each card, but they're definitely down draft type fans not radial fans. The fins of the heatsink are far too thick, there's no signs of heat pipes, no signs of a baseplate to get heat off ram or vrm, they've conveniently covered up the middle where you're assume the chip is as that's likely where the design comes unstuck. As they couldn't get it right. Still 100% fake.

The only questionable thing I found is the PCB is too short (unless the chip is HBM based but highly doubt it)

They're claiming an indented v-shape in the PCB, which looks to go right through where vrm would normally be. Now you could put the vrm over the other side of the gpu, seen that done a few times, but it'd be incredibly tight. Too tight most likely. Definitely bs.

So the card goes up not down?
Looks so fake i can't even say it's a rumour.

I like to have fun.

Ultimately who cares, you'll find out real or fake later this year.

This really doesn't strike me as something Nvidia would design. The screw holes don't line up and the lines that are cut into it aren't consistent, even on the same side. The fans are also completely different from each other. The lack of PCI-E power connecters is also quite unusual for a high end card...

Then again, it would be kinda expensive for some random guy to cook something like this up in his garage. I guess this could be a very early prototype... Or a Chinese market knockoff using GTX 750 ti parts for a good rip-off.

whatever that is, it's way too "retro" with the infinity band boom box look for me to ever buy, period.

yes, I would skip an NV GPU cycle if it were that ugly. 100%.

also note how it doesn't say NVIDIA anywhere on the card.
.
maybe its some freaky partner cooler. Not sure why someone would put the time into fabricating a 100% fake for some clicks? I guess it wouldn't be the first time.

Skipping a generation because of a reference card and its looks? Sure hope you weren't been inclusive of AIB partner coolers or maybe putting a waterblock on the card.

Yes, it does. In a small engraving, on the backplate and near the bottom. It could also be on the rear of the backplate, like the Founder's Edition of the previous cooler. Or perhaps on the parts covered up.. though I'm not sure how much the significance of that matters.

Videocardz had the first leak of the 2080/TI. Could be real.
