Graphics card manufacturers have to work closely with memory manufacturers when it comes to bringing next generation solutions to market. However, the number of keepers of trade secrets often spontaneously increases to infinity. And now, with the filing of Micron, it became known that NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 will receive 12 GB of GDDR6X memory.
The story with SK Hynix, which rumors attributed to cooperation with AMD on the creation of graphics solutions of the Navi family with memory such as HBM2e, shows that such leaks cannot always be trusted. Nevertheless, at the time of preparing this material for publication, it was completely free to get an electronic brochure on the Micron Technology website, in which the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 video card is openly mentioned as an example of a product using GDDR6X memory.
The memory size is mentioned – 12 GB, its total bandwidth is 1 TB / s and a possible frequency range, from 19 to 21 GHz. The original table is not abundant in other details that would be understandable to the layman, but even these revelations are of high value. At the very least, we can be sure that the GeForce RTX 3090 does indeed hit the market and use GDDR6X memory. It is possible that the GeForce RTX 3090 video card may come out in several versions, which will have different amounts of memory. It is expected that the formal announcement of the GeForce RTX 3090 will take place on September 1 during a live broadcast.
