While we take a look at some renders of the RTX 3070, 3080 and 3090, it’s always good to get a look at one Actual Card. It may be surprising to see how Nvidia originally changed the design of its cooler to the RTX 20-series, sporting a fan on the underside with the new 3080 Founders Edition, cooled in and out by the I / O bracket. The air is pushed through, and the second is drawing air through the fan heating upwards to the top of the card and into the top half of the chassis.
Nvidia knows how to make a good-looking graphics card, and exactly what we have here – it’s a heavy and premium-looking piece of kit, with a beautiful unibody cuff against a black backplate well Is the opposite. We can also see the GeForce RTX logo appearing on the right side of the card.
The new 12-pin power connector is another thing to indicate. It was not immediately apparent from leaks around this new connector, but it is much smaller than the two standard 8-pin power plugs – reducing the overall scale of the pins. An adapter comes in the box with the installer version, so if you don’t yet have a 12-pin cable, you can use a 2 × 8-pin card instead.
We can also take a look at those video outputs on the side of the card. 3x DisplayPort 1.4a connectors are on offer, as well as 1x HDMI 2.1, offering full 48Gbps bandwidth.
