Continuing the succession of leaks about a new generation of NVIDIA graphics cards, you can not skip the accelerator image in the Founders Edition reference design, considering that before that we saw only solutions from partners. And in this case we are talking about the RTX 2080 Ti model.
We recall that NVIDIA has been offering its own 3D-maps, which have the words Founders Edition in the title, since 2016.
As we can see, early data was confirmed in the new generation " green "really refuse the turbine type of fans in favor of ordinary blade models. In this case, the reference CO includes two such fans. Unfortunately, the image does not allow you to fully appreciate the new casing design and look at the back side of the board. But on the whole it is clear that the hull has become more straightforward without bends and fractures.
How new a CO with two conventional fans will be more effective than an old one with a turbine is unclear. But for a certain part of the buyers who favored turbines, this decision clearly will not cause the best emotions.
Already now it can be said with certainty that the reference video cards Founders Edition from the new Turing family will be sold through the company's NVIDIA store. Alas, there is still no data on price policy and timing of sales, so it is not clear whether the reference design cards will have any advantage over partner models.
According to preliminary data, the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti will have 4352 CUDA cores, 352-bit bus and 11 GB of GDDR6 memory.
We are separated from the announcement of a new generation of NVIDIA video cards for some six hours.
