Nvidia Ampere Rumors Point to 300W+ TDP, Up to 24GB of VRAM

Rumors about Nvidia’s Ampere and the proposed family of consumer GPUs based on it have been circulating for months. The latest leaks claim Nvidia is prepping some significant improvements at the top end, along with higher power consumption.

According to Igor’s Lab, which also leaked supposed images of the new Ampere GPUs this week, the upcoming top-end cards will be the RTX 3090 (possibly branded as Ti or Super), followed by the RTX 3080 (Ti/Super), followed by the RTX 3080. All three of these GPUs would be based on the GA102 die, and all of them would use 300W+ of TDP — 350W for the 3090, and 320W for both of the 3080 models below it. RAM would be GDDR6X in all cases, with a 384-bit, 352-bit, and 320-bit interface on each GPU respectively. The top-end 3090 would carry NVLink, but the lower-end GPUs wouldn’t.

300W just for the GPU - a typically power supply for a server provides >= 1000W, so just get used to the power consumption of a workstation/server, and you'll be fine ;-)
