It’s only few more hours to go before we can see the official launch of the new GeForce RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti from NVIDIA, but the leaked image of the supposed reference design of the RTX 2080 is already available to the public on videocardz.com.
We can see many of you have raised concerns of the load temperature of the new cards. It’s understandable as majority of the cards from the leaked image of the RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti from NVIDIA’s AIB partners are shown using a triple fan cooler, which somewhat hinted that he card is going to be pretty hot. Now, the leaked image of the alleged RTX 2080 / RTX 2080 Ti reference design too, are seen with a dual fan cooler. Let’s hope that’s just for the RTX 2080 Ti, since it has a lot more CUDA cores compared to the RTX 2080.
Just a quick recap, the GerForce RTX 2080 Ti will pack a 11GB GDDR6 memory clocked at 14Gbps, 352-bit memory bus width and memory bandwidth of 616 GB/s. Compared to the recently released Quadro RTX 6000 and RTX 8000, the amount of CUDA cores that RTX 2080 Ti has (4352 CUDA cores) is slightly fewer than both the Quadro (4608 CUDA cores). So… Sticking a dual fan or triple fan cooler to the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti is definitely a good idea.
Jen-Hsun Huang, CEO of NVIDIA will be announcing the new GeForce RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti later at Gamescom 2018, 12:00 AM (GMT +8:00). You can watch it live via NVIDIA’s official Twitch channel at https://www.twitch.tv/nvidia
