A few weeks ago a timer started, which was supposed to end at the end of September. We all thought it would be the Ampere Graphics Card, and it seems that we were not wrong. Nvidia has just announced or confirmed the design of the RTX 30 Series.
The design is described in a depth article, and According to Nvidia It is “A Remarkable Art and Science of Modern Graphics Card Design”. Here is the official video, which has all sorts of details that start with the logic behind the cooling design, problems with previous RTX 20 Series Cards, and what is left to improvise in the future. The video is pretty sick, check it out.
“In order to achieve this perfect airflow, we have to remove the constraints we had before,” David Haley, thermal architect at Nvidia, explains. “We have to change the PCB. We have to move the fans. We need to change the software stack that’s controlling the fans.
“As we move forward,” Haley continues, “we’re taking a holistic approach because making a GPU isn’t all about the thermal solution. It’s about bringing all the pieces of the product together: considering thermal design, mechanical design, electrical design, with industrial design tying it all together to unleash the full potential of the GPU with an obsessive focus on keeping the system cool and quiet.”
Here are the features from the Nvidia Blog, that are going to ensure that the Graphics Cards reach their maximum potential while remaining cool and quiet at the same time.
If you are one of those, that are planning to upgrade to RTX 30 Series, make sure you tune in for the GeForce Special Event, which is scheduled for September 1, 2020 at 5 pm BST.
