It appears to be like like NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 graphics playing cards with blower-style coolers are very silently being discontinued, with VideoCardz reporting that RTX 3090 blower-style cooled playing cards are being faraway from AIB companions’ web sites.
NVIDIA companions are actually eradicating pages with blower-style GeForce RTX 3090 graphics playing cards from their web sites, however there are nonetheless blower-style customized GeForce RTX 3080 and GeForce RTX 3070 graphics playing cards. There is no motive behind the discontinuation of the RTX 3090 blower-style playing cards, however there are just a few theories.
First off, VideoCardz is on the cash with saying that board companions “may need merely determined to make use of this kind of coolers for his or her CMP HX fashions, which might be out there by way of AIBs completely beginning subsequent month”. I even stated in my post for the EMTEK GeForce RTX 3090 Blower Edition graphics card: “The daugherboard is a separate PCB that’s there solely for the 2 PCIe energy connectors, which is loads of work for EMTEK to do for a single SKU of the GeForce RTX 3090. Attention-grabbing design although, I can see loads of these being utilized in crypto mines“.
Another excuse is that there aren’t many Ampere GPUs being made and GDDR6X reminiscence in enormous 24GB chunks may be higher used on different playing cards — you recognize, the non-blower-style cooler. I am positive NVIDIA would need to ramp GeForce RTX 3090 manufacturing down contemplating the GPU shortages and promote extra GeForce RTX 3060, RTX 3060 Ti, RTX 3070 and RTX 3080 playing cards.
AIB companions shifting away from blower-style RTX 3090 playing cards to NVIDIA’s new Crypto Mining Processors additionally is smart, as they will reuse these blower-style coolers on new CMP HX mining playing cards.
