We have received a picture of alleged next-generation graphics cards from ASUS.
ASUS GeForce RTX 3080 Ti ROG STRIX
Is this the upcoming GeForce RTX 3080 Ti from ASUS? We are not sure. The picture (which originally was much lower resolution) shows a new model featuring ROG STRIX branding and a 3080 Ti label. The title of the slide says “next-generation ROG STRIX”.
We believe the picture is from ASUS’s internal meeting discussing new designs for the upcoming Ampere-based graphics cards from NVIDIA. The card would feature a triple-fan design. The card looks a lot different from the current-gen RTX 2080 Ti mode. ASUS allegedly decided to combine black and silver design.
Unless NVIDIA is planning a much bigger high-end GPU lineup than before, the 3080 Ti label would indicate that RTX 3090 rumors are not true, as the next-generation enthusiast model would retain the same naming scheme as Turing series.
Update: We have been told that the screenshot comes from internal design proofing, thus we are quite confident it is real. It may however not represent the final design, but one of many concepts.
