A recent leak about the highly-anticipated Nvidia RTX 3000 gives the tech community a glimpse of what to expect about the GPU.
It appears that the Nvidia RTX 3000 packs some serious hardware and software upgrades. Word around the community is that the new series will pose a definite challenge to the current AMD lineup.
Nvidia has yet to release nor confirm the official specs of the RTX 3000. However, several leaks have given the tech community of what to expect. From the looks of it, the graphics card is powerful as originally anticipated.
Official launch date
Rumors claim that Nvidia will launch the RTX 3000 as a celebration of the 21st anniversary of GeForce. It is the flagship brand of Nvidia and is regarded as one of the best graphics cards in the world. The official Nvidia twitter account hints to a possible August 31 launch.
In one of its posts, the company used the hashtag #UltimateCountdown. Additionally, the company also changed its cover photo to show a picture with a tagline “21 days. 21 years.” Fans claim that the company is teasing the 21st-anniversary celebration of the GeForce brand.

It is also important to note that the countdown will expire on August 31. Incidentally, this is also the date when Nvidia launched the original GeForce 256 graphics card. It makes sense for the company to release its new graphics cards at this time.
Some have pointed out that Nvidia is just planning a simple anniversary event for the GeForce brand. However, many indications are pointing out to the possibility of the launch of the Nvidia RTX 3000 as well.
What to expect
According to Tech Radar, Nvidia is slated to release at least two new cards for the premium market. One of these cards boasts a massive 24GB graphics card memory and a 384-bit bus width. Considering the current hardware in the market, this is an incredible upgrade.
The rumored successor of the RTX 2080 Super is the RTX 3080. The video card is expected to pack 10GB of VRAM and a 320-bit bust width. The card is expected to hit the market sometime in September.
It is important to note that most of these tidbits of information are coming from rumors. Nvidia has kept its silence about its upcoming family of graphics cards.
AMD is also slated to release its series of graphic cards to rival the new Nvidia lineup. However, based on recent rumors, the Nvidia RTX 3000 series has the upper hand.
