    The bubble busted over the weekend when photos leaked of the alleged GeForce RTX 3080, the new front and back fan design is pretty unique. A Reddit user now has made some 3D renderings of the card, pretty good ones as well.

    Judging from the direction of the fan blades (one clockwise, one counter cw), it pulls in air from the bottom (above where usually the PSU sits) and pushes the hot air upwards (toward the DRAM modules in most motherboards). Since the fans are not blower type, you will need a decent amount of clearance from the PSU or any other part that is positioned beneath the card to efficiently provide cool air to the bottom fan. And some serious RAM heat-sinks if you OC your RAM.

    compared to classic AIB non-reference cards, that blow the hot air everywhere, I don't see how this particular problem with hot air going up to RAM modules is a problem. It's going there anyway unless you have a GPU with blower fans. And we don't because we hate blower fans, we prefer cooler card and hotter...everything else.

    PS. Oh yea, I think this is fake (not render, the original images that "leaked" ). It's way to ugly for nVidia to make. AMD, maybe.

    Hot air would eventually rise to that area anyway, pushing it straight there where a case should have an outtake fan makes sense and would result in a working airflow.

    Imagine a shroud over that on the front side to hide all the fins, and it suddenly looks like any other card. But it would offer quite some thermal advantages.

    it draws air into the card from both sides.

    Really? Who reported the rumour so I can follow up? Personally, I'd find that hard to believe.

    Interesting design. Far different than the 2xxx series cards.

    Ugly and strange fan layout. I'll wait to see reviews on the actual cards.

    This ALWAYS has to be the default propaganda from NVidia - otherwise how would they sell any 3080s before the 3080Ti comes out ;)

    I mean since 9xx series they would release the xx80 then the titan then they will claim there is no ti comming and like 2 months later they release a ti.... Am i remembering wrong ?

    The way this is laid out it will dump all its heat into the CPU cooler unless you're using liquid cooling i mean most axial cooled gpus dump heat into the case but this will be dumping it directly into the front of any tower cooler.
