The first image of NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3090 graphics card in a standard PC case has been posted on Chiphell Forums (Going through Videocardz). The photo shows the card barely fits in a standard PC chassis, which should be of slight concern to users who use smaller PC cases and plan to purchase the new Monster in Founders Edition flavors.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 graphics card barely fits inside a standard PC case, even ATX motherboards seem small
When NVIDIA unveiled the GeForce RTX 30 series graphics card, they showcased three different Founders Edition designs for each of their three offerings. The GeForce RTX 3090 graphics card is not only the largest Founders Edition graphics card in the RTX 30 line, but also the largest for the entire generation of NVIDIA FE cards, the only exception being the three-slot Titan Z, but this card had two. chips while the RTX 3090 has only one GPU.
Looking at the image, the case barely holds the graphics card, as you can see that the back of the card is obstructing the hard drive bay area of the case. Since the fan at the bottom acts as an intake that pushes air in from the bottom, that would mean that part of the intake is blocked in this case.
Now not all PC cases are designed this way and most modern cases do not have a drive bay area as they either move the drive slots on the back of the case or they just allow users to remove and adjust the position of the drive cage. himself.
But still, just looking at the card in this PC, you can see how much space the card takes up as it measures 31.3cm x 13.8cm. The board is powered by a single 12-pin connector and you would need a 12-pin adapter that allows you to connect two 8-pin connectors from the power supply to supply power to the board. The triple slot monster also comes with heavy weight, but despite user concerns about the PCIe slot breaking or the card sagging, it should be noted that most modern motherboards come with dots. additional anchors and reinforced metal shielding on no chance that a card, even as large as the RTX 3090, will break the slot.
For reference, I used an RTX 2080 Ti Lightning Z, another three-slot board that weighed around 2kg in my PC without the included support bracket and saw no visible signs of damage. or tearing of the PCIe slot. The same goes for the GPU sag, the triple slot allows the card to be held by screws more firmly and in balance, but regardless of that, several custom designs with triple or even 4 slots for the RTX 3090s. and RTX 3080 will come with media which should certainly provide (as the name suggests) additional support.
A few days ago, ASUS also showcased what its custom ROG STRIX RTX 3090 looked like when fitted with an ITX motherboard. It seems that the roles have been reversed and that it is in fact the motherboard which is attached to the graphics card and not the other way around. The ROG STRIX variant is a much larger card than the Founders Edition with a size that exceeds more than 3 slots. That said, the GeForce RTX 3090 appears to be a force in its own right with NVIDIA claiming it is 50% faster than the Titan RTX which is literally insane with a more insane price tag of US $ 1,499.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 graphics card specifications
The RTX 3090 has insane specs such as 82 SM units, resulting in a total of 10,496 CUDA cores. In addition to CUDA cores, the board also comes with next-generation RT (Ray-Tracing) cores, Tensor cores, and brand new SM or streaming multiprocessor units. The card has a base clock of 1400 MHz and a boost clock of 1700 MHz with a TDP of 350W.
In terms of memory, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 comes with 24GB of memory and that too with the next generation GDDR6X design. With the latest and greatest graphics memory from Micron, the RTX 3080 can deliver GDDR6X memory speeds of 19.5 Gbps. This, together with a 384-bit bus interface, will provide a cumulative bandwidth of 936 Gbps.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Series graphics card pricing and availability
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 will launch to consumers on September 24, 2020. The benchmark Founders Edition variant will retail for US $ 1,499. The NVIDIA RTX 3090 will offer a price tag of $ 1,499 (MSRP) however custom models will vary depending on their design and the extra horsepower they have to offer.
There are no detailed performance figures that NVIDIA currently shares, but what has been present, the GeForce RTX 3070 is faster than an RTX 2080 Ti, the RTX 3080 is a bit ahead of the RTX 2080 Ti and the RTX 3090 is around 50% faster than the RTX 2080 Ti which is very impressive for the full range stack. With the GeForce RTX 3090 being the flagship, it’s up to 50% faster than the NVIDIA Titan RTX, which is just insane performance for this flagship BFGPU and is designed for gaming resolution up to 8K.
