With the floodgates for NVIDIA’s soon-to-be announced custom-cooled GeForce RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti GPUs already opened, leaked images of Zotac’s own custom-cooled cards have also made their way on to the internet. On a related note, it also looks like the new Turing-powered GeForce series will be shipped out under the Zotac Gaming brand, as well as the company’s AMP graphics card series
As mentioned by Videocardz, graphics cards released under Zotac’s AMP series usually comes fitted with a two fan solution. And it’s a bit of a surprise to see that the company has added in an extra fan, turning it into a three-fan cooling solution.
Both cards look identical in design, but both cards will each require a different power delivery to run. The RTX 2080 comes with an 8+6-pin PCIe power configuration, while the RTX 2080 Ti will require two 8-pin PCIe power connectors to run. So take note that the leaked image for the RTX 2080 Ti here is actually incorrect.
Jen-Hsun Huang, CEO of NVIDIA, announced the Turing GPU architecture at Siggraph 2018 less than a week ago. The new GPU architecture is loaded with tons of new technology, chief among which being the adoption of the new GDDR6 memory interface, RT (ray-tracing) Cores, and Tensor Cores for the use of AI computation.
There’s still not alot known about the specification of NVIDIA’s next-generation Turing-powered, gaming-grade GPU, and understandably so. But, seeing how Gamescom 2018 and NVIDIA’s special launch day is only days away, it’s safe to say that we’ll know more about the cards then.
