Yesterday is another huge day for NVIDIA NEWS Ampere leaks on the purported new Ampere-based flagship GeForce RTX 3090 confirmation from Micron.
The Videpcardz spotted have spotted a new technology brief, Micron has confirmed that GeForce RTX 3090 will sport memory-based GDDR6X technology. The company says, The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 will have 12GB of GDDR6X on a 384-bit memory interface.
As per the Micron, the NVIDIA Ampere RTX 3090 will feature 12 GDDR6X DRAM dies for a total of 12 GB memory however it looks like NVIDIA has changed that much and the graphics card will be offering double the expected memory of up to 24 GB. This was also seen in the previous leaked PCB shot that shows the card with dual-sided DRAM dies. In that leaks, we got pitchers of the new upcoming Ampere RTX 3090 Graphics card.
As per Wccftech, The next-generation GDDR6X memory interface will deliver higher bandwidth and improved performance efficiency compared to the existing GDDR6 memory.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090
The Nvidia Geforce RTX 3090 graphics card is listed on the Micron website with 12GB GDDR6X memory. Micron estimates that Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 will be able to break the 1 TB/s barrier with a bandwidth expected between 912 to 1008 GB/s. To achieve 1TB/s bandwidth, the GPU would require a clock speed of 21 Gbps and a memory bus of 384-bit. The speed is not clear yet but it should be between 19 and 21 Gbps.
The new high-end NVIDIA GPUs might feature GDDR6X memory, It was been long speculated, however, not a single memory manufacturer confirmed it until now.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 is expected to feature GA102-300 GPU with 5248 CUDA cores, however, the specifications have not yet been confirmed. While Micron claims that the RTX 3090 would launch with 12 GB GDDR6X memory, we have also seen many leaks featuring 22, 20, and even 16GB configurations.
As per the Micron – “Micron GDDR6X is the world’s fastest graphics memory, delivering legendary performance to help driveray tracing, shadow mapping, and silky-smooth animation for an immersive PC gaming experience.”
As per the Micron – “In the Summer of 2020, The Micron has announced the next evolution of Ultra-Bandwidth Solutions in the world’s fastest graphics memory GDDR6X. Working closely with NVIDIA on their Ampere generation of GPUs, Micron’s 8Gb GDDR6X will deliver up to 21Gb/s (data rate per pin) in 2020. At 21Gb/s, a GPU with 12pcs of GDDR6X will be able to break the 1TB/s of system bandwidth barrier!”
Micron also adds “Micron’s roadmap also highlights the potential for a 16Gb GDDR6X in 2021 with the ability to reach up to 24Gb/s. GDDR6X technology is powered by a revolutionary new PAM4 modulation technology for Ultra-Bandwidth Solutions. The PAM4 has the potential to drive even more improvements in data rate”.
