NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition Ray-Tracing Beast GPU Leaks With Dual Fans

NVIDIA wanted to keep things very close to the vest when it comes to its brand-new GeForce RTX family of ray-tracing graphics cards, and it was doing a great job of this information blackout until about a week ago. Now, we've been bombarded with leaked box shots, card shots, and specs of NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 GPUs from multiple board partners before they are even officially announced.

One card that until now has been kept under cover -- until now -- is NVIDIA's own GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition. That GeForce RTX card today leaked for all to see, albeit with an incomplete render that appears to have been taken from NVIDIA promotional materials.

What we can clearly see, however, is that NVIDIA has abandoned its traditional blower-style cooler setup that has been used on previous Founder Edition cards to a dual-fan arrangement that is often favored by its board partners. We can also see that the GeForce RTX logo on the top of the card is apparently lit up with RGB lighting.

As we've previously reported, the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti will be a gaming beast with a total of 4352 CUDA cores, a core clock of 1350MHz and a boost clock of 1545MHz. To see a comparison between the RTX 2080 Ti and its lesser RTX 2080 sibling, take a look at the chart below:

The GeForce RTX 2080 Ti also comes with 11GB of GDDR6 memory and is expected to have a TDP of 285 watts. NVIDIA has also abandoned the traditional SLI connector for one based on NVLink and has added support for VirtualLink to power next-generation VR headsets.
