Nvidia’s RTX 3080 and 3090 graphics cards are leaked with pics and reported specs

Image Description

Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 have witnessed some major leakage, with images from two manufacturers spilled online – plus the purported final specs of the graphics cards – and pics of the RTX 3070 too.

Gainward and Zotac are the subject of these leaks, with images of the former’s Phoenix graphics cards coming complete with spec details on the RTX 3080 and 3090, as highlighted by Videocardz.

As well as confirming the names, which are clearly on the packaging, the leak lets us know that the GPUs are built on 7nm and Gainward’s 3080 and 3090 have a 2.7-slot design with three fans (so unsurprisingly, the third-party cards aren’t small, either – but they aren’t on the same scale as Nvidia’s purported giant Founders Edition which we glimpsed recently).

As for those specs, the RTX 3090 is loaded up with 5,248 CUDA cores (as was previously rumored), with a massive 24GB of GDDR6X video memory (ditto) featuring a speed of 19.5Gbps, with power consumption pegged at 350W (again as rumored before).

With the RTX 3080, you’re looking at 4,352 CUDA cores, 10GB of GDDR6X VRAM (at 19Gbps) and 320W on the power front (a version with more video memory may be launched further down the line).

Gainward will run the RTX 3090 at a boost clock of 1,725MHz with the RTX 3080 reaching 1,740MHz. Remember, we can’t take this as a cast-iron certainty, as with any leak, but at this point, the spec sheet looks pretty convincing (and marries with previous speculation, and the fresh spillage from Zotac as well).

Let there be RGB

Zotac’s leaked images (again via Videocardz) of its RTX 3080 and 3090 models, as well as 3070 boards, also shows Trinity HoLo models of the 3080 and 3090 (alongside plain Trinity – which ditches the RGB lighting – as well as AMP Extreme versions) which are triple slot graphics cards with three fans like Gainward’s GPUs.

Zotac’s RTX 3070 GPU will be a smaller graphics card with a dual-fan configuration (with an RGB version, and one without any fancy lighting).

Further note that the leaks reveal that Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3090 will supposedly benefit from NVLink SLI, meaning you can pair up two of these GPUs for monster performance (although the cost of two cards will doubtless reach a truly astronomical level).

These Ampere graphics cards will support PCIe 4.0, and come with second-gen ray tracing cores – a massive uplift in performance has been previously rumored when it comes to the RT cores. At any rate, the launch of these GPUs is almost upon us now, and we’ll soon know the full official details: Nvidia is expected to conduct the big reveal on September 1, in just two days.

  • Internet outages: Spotify, Discord and more are finally back up

    If you're starting to get the impression that internet outages happen every other week now, you're not alone, we're certainly feeling that way too. The latest victims? Spotify and Discord.

    Music streaming leviathan Spotify and hugely popular chat platform Discord both suffered major outages for over an hour, but they're back now.

    These two platforms were affected the most, but they weren't the only ones to suffer, and reports also suggested Facebook,  Wikipedia, Google Cloud and more are all struggling too, though Spotify and Discord were the worst hit. 

    It's all over now though, and you can listen to music or chat with your friends without having to worry. Phew. That was a big distraction from the Apple March event but now we're back to iDevices.

    This is our first post of this internet outage live blog - we're investigating what's going on now.

    In the US, Downdetector is seeing outages for:

    • Spotify
    • Discord
    • Wikipedia
    • Amazon Web Services
    • Twitter
    • Facebook
    • Destiny
    • Cloudflare
    • Instagram
    • YouTube
    • Google Cloud
    • Twitch
    • Multiple Apple services
    • TikTok
    • Snapchat

    In the UK, the affected webpages are similar:

    • Spotify
    • Discord
    • Twitter
    • Amazon Web Services
    • Destiny
    • Instagram
    • YouTube
    • Cloudflare
    • Facebook
    • Google Cloud
    • Revolut
    • Snapchat
    • Steam

    It's worth pointing out that not everybody will be affected by these outages - but enough are that some companies are commenting on the issues.

    Discord is one such company, which apologized for the issue. Although it did follow up by saying "time to go outside everyone", which seems a little sassy. OK, mom.

    Spotify is another service which is down.

    See more

    However this definitely isn't as widespread an outage as we sometimes see, because multiple members of the TechRadar team are accessing it just fine.

    That said, all surveyed members of team are UK-based. This sounds a lot like a US problem.

    Some other reports are coming in from TechRadar team members in the US. They're finding that Discord and Spotify are both down.

    Oh, you might see on Downdetector that the online Apple store is down - well, that's not quite because of the outage (or maybe it is, but there's another reason).

    That's because Apple's March Event just wrapped up, and the company usually takes its online store offline while it populates it with more products.

    So yeah, busy day in tech. We saw the iPhone SE (2022), iPad Air 5, M1 Ultra and more. You can read our full Apple Event live blog here. Also, the store has just gone back online.

    Reports suggest that Spotify and Discord are the two sites seeing the worst outages. In fact a Twitter trend page has been started where people are sharing memes.

    At least Twitter isn't down.

    Despite the fact that Amazon Web Services is reporting issues, it doesn't seem like the Bezos company's web-hosting platform is the problem, because then lots more would be down. 

    Oh, and AWS hasn't reported anything as far as we can tell.

    We'll bring you more when we work out what's going on.

    It's starting to sound like services are returning to normality?

    On Downdetector, reports of issues have been plummeting for the last few minutes. We're checking in with some people to see if the apps are running again.

    Uh, nope - one of my US colleagues has confirmed Discord is still down for them. Well, maybe it's slowly getting back up, but not for everyone just yet.

    Spotify's community page still reports a problem, with an official post from 50 minutes ago stating that the main issue was that people couldn't log in.

    Discord's error status log also suggests the problem is ongoing, but there's possibly another reason behind the decline in user report numbers on Downdetector.

    It's possible that, since everyone knows there's a Spotify and Discord outage now, no-one's bothering to report it any more. This would make it look like the issue has abated, when it actually hasn't.

    We thought these issues were US-only, but a few TechRadar team members in the UK have reported that the web app isn't working for them either.

    Well, it's working for me, so I'll just enjoy that. And YouTube, Apple Music, Prime Music, Tidal and the billions of other music streaming apps are still working, so hopefully no-one is having to sit in silence now.

    We've heard reports that Spotify is a lot more stable if you use the desktop app, rather than the online site. 

    So if you do normally use Spotify's website for music (why?) maybe try the desktop app. Still, this might just be hearsay or confirmation bias, and our survey size is pretty limited, so don't get your hopes up.

    A 'source' (someone we knows who plays it) has told us that Destiny is 'down for maintenance' on Xbox... but is still working fine on Stadia.

    Remember Stadia? Well maybe now's the time to dust off your... err, virtual console.

    We're hearing more reports that Discord is back up, including from people on team who use it. Maybe the storm really has passed?

    At least the Elden Ring servers aren't down. If I had to play that game without seeing the same three jokes repeated from every player message, I'm not sure I'd be able to enjoy the game.

    Spotify is reporting that it's back in action.

    So you should be able to access it soon, though servers might be rammed with everyone jumping on board, so give it a few minutes.

    Oh, has got a report saying "traffic is coming back online" though "some functionality will remain intentionally disabled until the service stabilizes". 

    The status bar has gone from red to orange too, which is probably a good sign, right?

    And Discord is now back up too.

    See more

    It sounds like they've put it back together with twine and PVA glue, so it might be a bit slow to begin with. Maybe go gentle on it, start with typed messages before you go hard on the gifs and voice calls.

    So what happened here?

    It's not exactly clear - not enough websites went down for this to be another web domain host problem, but it was too broad to be an issue with any one platform.

    Let's hope that a company comes out and says what happens, otherwise this'll just end up 'one of those things'.
