It was known that the Nvidia RTX 3xxx series of graphics cards are coming out anytime in next couple of months. In support of it, an image of Asus RTX 3080 model has surfaced on the web for the first time. Going by the photos of the video card leaked by a Videocardz resource there is a probability of continuation of the ROG Strix line. In other words, GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is nearing its launch.
The detailed rendering is presumably shot by one of the company’s employees in the event held in China. It is likely to be taken in a closed ASUS conference, where the design of future video cards based on Nvidia Ampere graphic cores was discussed
The image by Videocardz shows a video graphics card, a massive cooler with triple fans. The cooling system casing is decorated in silver-black colours with ROG branding and the text “3080 Ti” embossed. There is a text “Next generation ROG Strix” on the top of the image. A faint RGB lighting can also be seen on the top but no connectors are visible.
The design of GeForce RTX 3080 is bold and different from its predecessors. Both Videocardz and Wccftech speculate, model Geforce RTX 3080 Ti to be the top model in the series and chances of notorious RTX 3090 turn out to be a flop.
It is nowhere close to the earlier one RTX 2080 Ti ROG STRIX. If the company follows its predecessors it can be concluded that the recent leak may be a false alarm.
As of now, there is no official confirmation on the launch date for the next generation of Nvidia graphics circuits. But there are pointers that both market and manufacturer are ready for a not too distant launch. Till then stay tuned!
