Igor Wallossek leaks yet another material from AIBs.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 (3090/3080) to enter mass production in August, launching September?

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Series might launch in September, new rumors from Igor’sLAB indicate. According to the data provided in two of his posts, NVIDIA is currently evaluating the design of its high-end GeForce Ampere series.

The cooler design that was leaked this week is not actually the final design, which let’s be honest was to be expected. What Igor learned is that this design is just one of the two currently being evaluated by NVIDIA. The decision which design will end up in the actual product will be made in July, during the Design Validation Test.

Igor clearly stated that the information he posted is based on the launch schedule he saw during previous launches. This part is clearly not a leak, but more like an estimation.

The Ampere “power bill”

We have also learned that the chart posted by Igor earlier this week (and attached below), is actually from NVIDIA. This chart was provided to board partners for early development. It does not have the exact values though, because it would certainly reveal the source. Also bear in mind that in the original chart had Total Board Power was wrongly labeled as Total Graphics Power. The TGP only indicates how much power is used by the GPU, not the whole board.

Estimated power consumption / losses
Total Board Power350 watts
24 GB GDDR6X memory (GA_0180_P075_120X140, 2.5 watts per module)-60 watts
MOSFET, Inductor, Caps NVDD (GPU Voltage)-26 watts
MOSFET, Inductor, Caps FBVDDQ (Framebuffer Voltage)-6 watts
MOSFET, Inductor, Caps PEXVDD (PCIExpress Voltage)-2 watts
Other voltages, input section (AUX)-4 watts
Fans, Other Power-7 watts
PCB losses-15 watts
GPU powerapprox. 230 watts
