My predictions:
  1. The 3090 will be $1400 in the same way the 2080ti was $1000. This means that in reality you should be expecting $200 more for the founders and pretty much all the good AIB cards (except from the "entry-level" ones with the worst coolers) . And higher-end models even more. So we are really looking for $1600.
  2. The 3090 will definitely not have more CUDA cores than what is currently available with the A100. Yes the A100 WILL have 8192 but at the moment the maximum available configuration is with 6912. So 6912 CUDA cores is the absolute maximum for the 3090.
  3. The 3080 will have at least half of the 3090’s CUDA cores (i.e. 3456 in case the 3090 sports 6912 CUDA cores) and will cost half the money ($800).

a friend sent me a video that, based on what he was able to find, from runours, leaks, and the odd official tidbits, the fan on the back is for a co processor for RT functions. the author of this video, also did one based on big navi, both worth the watch, as both are kind of interesting, even if they are his own opinions and conclusions.

while interesting, still a good idea to keep some salt beside you :)

Dang that's a BIG card. RIP SFF gamers.
If the leaks are true, this is the FE version which is so large because the pentagon surrounding the fan on the right side has no PCB under it. The PCB only goes from the back plate up to the triangle cutout bordering the right pentagon. Because the PCB is so short, it had to be doubled sided and much taller. There will also reportedly be a traditionally shaped rectangular PCB reference design for AIB's which should work fine in SFF's.

The specifications for the GeForce RTX 3090 aren't clear yet, but we might be looking at a graphics card that could feature 5,376 to 7,552 CUDA cores and up to 12GB of GDDR6X memory.
I have yet to see a leak that predicts the 3090 will come with only 12GB. Every current leak says 24GB. The $200 price hike would suck, but if you actually need 24GB of RAM (ie, not gamers), $1400 is a pretty decent deal. What's the cheapest video card up until now that has 24GB RAM?

Interesting that the "3080" and "3070" are both predicted to have two different memory amounts.

Is that a fan on the front and the back? Is that some kind of push-pull wind chamber design?
The rear part of the card is likely a straight-through heatsink with some heatpipes, which should be far more effective at dissipating heat than blowing air at the PCB and PCIe slot. With a card likely going to draw over 300W based on Nvidia feeling compelled to come up with something beyond dual AUX8/150W for power, it'll need all the cooling efficiency it can get.

I like how the dude says 2080ti released for 999.99, when in reality you could not find the card for less than 1200 anywhere for what, 8 months? Small gripe but I really hate when articles do this, be honest please. There was no 999.99 version at release, if you wanted the card you paid 1200 or more.

Pictures like that have been doing the rounds for some time and as likely to be genuine as a picture of the upcoming new Mercedes S-Class with an extra wheel under the engine.

What I want to know is what about the 3090 Ti?!?!? Any info on that sheesh...
The RTX 3090 is actually the RTX 3080 ti, the equivalent of the RTX 2080 ti from the previous generation. They just changed the name. Hope the slower cards like the RTX 3080 and RTX 3070 won't need the 12 pin power supply or work with 8+8 pin or something. And also there will be shorter cumstom versions. The prices given are most likely for the Founder's Edition of each card which usually costs more. Actually, I would be happy if the RTX 3070 would sell for 600 dollars as that is the price for the FE vesion of RTX 2070 and also RTX 2080 FE also had a price tag of 800 dollars (799). That would mean no price increase for the rest of the cards. Although, more expensive than the SUPER lineup which cut off the initial price by 100 dollars.

I wouldn't worry about that too much, there will be a billion adapters for it in due time and if you are going to plonk $1000+ on a GPU, an extra $25 won't break the bank. Also, unless Nvidia makes use of its cable mandatory in its AIB contracts, I suspect most AIBs will have 8-pins variants and some may even ignore Nvidia's connector altogether.

I would never buy such an expensive card anyway. That is why I said that I hope the lower models like RTX 3080 and RTX 3070 won't need so much power and will still need the normal 6+8 pin or 8+8 pin power supply connectors. 600-800 dollars is more in my price range. I own a 850W Seasonic power supply, which is very capable.

This connector is only expected to be seen on Nvidia Founders Edition cards. That said, I would expect to see it on every card that would require more than one power cable, which would definitely include the x80 card. I would also expect that the adapter will come in the box with any card from Nvidia that needs it.

Probably not. The 3090 should be a tier above the 3080ti, which Nvidia will use as justification to charge more than they did for the 2080ti. We'll still probably see a 3080ti in next year's refresh the way Nvidia used to do it with Kepler, Maxwell and Pascal.
