No, this is not the first image of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080

Buzz is soaring for the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 – the upcoming technology graphics card that is probably to arrive (alongside other RTX 3000 GPUs) sometime this 12 months – and a new image has been posted on the internet that apparently reveals what the upcoming graphics card will look like.

However, even though we cannot hold out to see the RTX 3080 (or no matter what name Nvidia chooses for its upcoming flagship GPU), the image posted on the internet is practically definitely a faux.

Initial of all, it was posted on the Slashleaks internet site, and considering the fact that removed, with quite minimal corroborating evidence by a person who does not seem to be to have posted any other leaks formerly.

Apparently, the image was leaked by an personnel of (or somebody with a link to) TSMC. TSMC (Taiwan Semiconductor Producing Firm) is a firm applied by the likes of Nvidia and AMD to generate chips that electricity their hardware. 

Spinning a tale

The image reveals a supposedly elongated GPU with a few supporters, but normally appears to be suspiciously like an RTX 2080 Ti.

Incorporating a third supporter onto an existing products (and building it a little for a longer time) is a somewhat easy tweak somebody could make in Photoshop (other photo editors are out there), so as far as faux leaks go, this isn’t the most convincing.

We were being expecting to listen to extra about Nvidia’s upcoming-gen GPU strategies at Computex 2020, but as the Taiwanese tech exhibit has been postponed till the conclusion of September due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we might have to hold out a even though to uncover out extra.

With any luck , we will not have to hold out that very long to uncover out extra about the RTX 3080, as Nvidia might come to a decision to exhibit off its upcoming GPUs at its very own celebration alternatively. If extra leaks (actual or normally) start to arise, it might force Nvidia’s hand.
