The next generation NVIDIA GeForce RTX will really be the 30 series, will include the much rumored RTX 3090 and will have GDDR6X VRAM: this is the juiciest information, but not the only one, on the highly anticipated new GPUs that have been confirmed by a practically official source: Micron, or the manufacturer of the VRAM memories in question. And how do we know that the information is true? Simple: the post has been removed. A classic! Luckily the guys at Videocardz managed to save the screenshots of every single line – for those interested the full gallery is at the bottom of the article. The concise summary of the highlights is as follows:
- The name of the RTX 3090 is confirmed, therefore. Micron says the card will carry a whopping 12GB of GDDR6X, and that it will be able to hit the TB / s barrier, with an expected bandwidth of between 912 and 1,008GB / s. It would take a speed of 21 Gbps and a 384-bit bus to reach those speeds. It is not clear if this amount of memory will be the only one expected: previous rumors have also spoken of 22, 20 and 16 GB.
- It clearly follows that all the other cards in the family will have similar names. We expect a 3080, a 3070 and a 3060.
- The GDDR6X chips prepared by Micron are 8 Gb, at least for 2020. But in 2021 the 16 Gb ones are also expected, which could bring the maximum speed per pin of 24 Gb / s.
The day of truth is getting closer …
