Zotac Seemingly Leaks RTX 3000-Series Ampere Graphics Cards

In what appears to be a small misstep, Zotac reportedly briefly listed its upcoming custom graphics cards that will be based on Nvidia's Ampere architecture.

A Twitter user shared some renders of what appears to be the Zotac Gaming GeForce RTX 3090 Trinity HoLo, as well as the designs for the GeForce RTX 3080. 

The GeForce RTX 3090 Trinity HoLo seems just as beefy as the Founders Edition that smiled for the camera a week ago. Zotac's rendition looks like it'll also take up three PCI slots and merit a triple-fan cooling setup, suggesting a considerable power consumption. Even the graphics card's backplate appears to be pretty thick. 

The latest addition to the GeForce RTX 3090 rumor mill claims a TGP (total graphics power) of 350W and, thus, utilization of the new 12-pin PCIe connector on the Founders Edition and the rumor about two 8-pin PCIe power connectors on custom models. Unfortunately, the render of the Zotac Gaming GeForce RTX 3090 Trinity HoLo doesn't shed any light on the matter.

Zotac's posted lineup, as per @momomo_us, reportedly featured eight different models, spanning from the GeForce RTX 3070 to the GeForce RTX 3090. 

The GeForce RTX 2070 models include the Zotac Gaming GeForce RTX 2070 Twin Edge and GeForce RTX 2070 Twin Edge HoLo. Judging by the model names, these graphics cards should come with dual-fan cooling setups.

Both the GeForce RTX 3080 and GeForce RTX 3090 families have three members each. The graphics cards come in the Trinity, Trinity HoLo and AMP Extreme flavors. As always, you can expect the AMP Extreme versions to be the best graphics cards in in Zotac's Ampere army, meaning these should come with the best binned silicon and highest factory overclocks.

We're just four days away from Nvidia's GeForce announcement, which is widely expected to be an Ampere launch. As graphics cards vendors are preparing their online marketing for the new graphics cards, we wouldn't be surprised to see more blunders before now and September 1.

    Two custom rtx3090 models have popped in China with $2400 and $2700 price tags. Hope those are merely placeholders.

    Can't agree enough.

    If that's the case, I would suspect the 3090 is replacing the titan card because that card has 24gigs and runs for $2500

    I wouldn't be surprised if the 3090 takes the place of the expensive >$2000 Titan (there have historically been two Titan types, the $1000-1500 one, and the $2000-2500 one. That also makes the RTX 2080 Ti a Titan, not really a true xx80 Ti). However:
    If the 3090 takes the place of the current Titan which has 24 gigs, than the 3090's 24 gigs won't look so impressive.
    Also, I think that Nvidia's marketing department would rather promote a Titan as the top-end card instead of the 3090. Sure, the 3090 uses a very rare naming convention, which makes it tand out from the pack, but the word "Titan" is totally different from a number based naming scheme, and the word itself conveys a sense of strength/superiority/etc. I mean, I would rather have a Titan card thn a xx90 card, amirite?

    I wonder if these will choke at all with Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 on Ultra.

    is the name 3090 been seen on any of the leaked card? or they're just using that number scheme as the leak. it could be that the 3090 is an internal name for the titan and not an official release name. Can't wait for the official reveal!

    Naming it RTX 3090 ensures that hardware reviewers would include the card in benchmark comparisons. I guess Nvidia is worried that AMD or Intel might steal its performance crown.

    Who says there won't be a $3000+ GA100 Titan coming down the line once Nvidia is all caught up on the HPC/datacenter side? Got to sell those excess and sub-par (at least datacenter-wise) 800+mm2 dies to somebody.

    It was on Twitter, so it must be true...

    Give us some real news.

    Is 3090 going to turn my room into a sauna like r9 290X use to?
