Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 might have been registered by MSI, according to a recent report.
MSI, the well-known computer hardware manufacturer, has registered many graphics cards build around Nvidia’s Ampere GPU architecture. Such a thing indicates that it has many next-gen GeForce cards in the works. And if we’re lucky enough, one of them could be the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090. Here is what you need to know.
Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 Features and Other Significant Details
Website PC Gamer reports that MSI registered what seems to be 29 Ampere-based graphics cards with the Eurasian Economic Commission. Also, three variants of GPU were listed, teasing the GeForce cards Nvidia might launch on September 1.
PC Gamer said that the model numbers are 602-V390, 602-V389, and 602-V388 variants. These models can be matched to MSI’s previous series of Nvidia GeForce RTX 20-series. It stated that the V388 version corresponds to the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090, the V390 to the RTX 3070, while V389 to the GeForce RTX 3080.
Given there are many versions of each model number, we should expect lots of configurations for the next-gen of Nvidia GeForce RTX graphics cards. They will most likely come with variations in clock speeds, cooling systems, video memory configurations, all at different price tags.
The MSI’s registration of all three graphics cards offers us few details about the naming conversion that Nvidia will come up with. Unfortunately, there was no mention of specs.
From the leaks and reports so far, Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 is expected to pack 20GB of VRAM and deliver up to 1TB/s of bandwidth thanks to a 384-bit memory interface. The RTX 3080 variant, on the other hand, is said to feature 10GB of VRAM, a bandwidth of 760GB/s, and a memory speed of 19Gbps.
Both GPUs are said to be very powerful. They could, however, be launched with hefty price tags.
