    Very interesting. Sort of hybrid blower. Having an intake on the top side (in an ATX case) might be problematic though, both for dust and CPU heat reasons.

    Oh and it's blatantly crying out for heXus branding!

    Gonna be honest, it feels fake mainly because the cooler doesn't really allow Nvidia to pursue their narcisstic self marketing on their products.

    And it looks like the designer has chosen a blower type design but they're using axial fans.

    am not going to pay for its design in looks.... am going to pay for horsepower if any.. I want to see what AMD got to offer first.

    Re: Alleged Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 poses for photos

    Looks like an all-in-one liquid cooled card to me. It'd simplify the pipe routing to have the radiator on the top side of the card (same plane as the outlets from the pump), hence the fan on the back, while the fan on the front wafts some air over the VRM heatsinks and memory.

    I like the fans - asus uses a similar design, the tip ring should help the aerodynamic efficiency while also cutting noise (by interrupting the tip vortices). They look like they're set up to spin opposite directions, and seem to have different levels of blade skew? The airflow could still follow the usual top down direction, just with the rear fan configured as exhaust (normally you want the fan hub support on the back to reduce noise, but with the radiator in place it probably doesn't make a difference).

    Shame that they haven't gone for 100% usb-c outputs. Dongles could be included etc. Might go some way to enforcing a standard.

    I don't get the fan on either side thing (taking it at face value what with it being an alleged design), isn't a fan something like 15mm deep or more, two of them would be 30mm odd, add what i guess would be a needed separator/diverter and things seem a bit thick, opening up my case and measuring my GPU is hassle, anyone know how thick a typical single slot cards?

    They're not on top of each other. One is next to the exhaust at the rear of a computer case, the other is towards the front of the case.

    Same direction in the card, just if you look at it from below it's spinning one way and from above another.

    Probably will cost a £1000 or something daft,so the mainstream GPUs will also go up another notch in price. Yawn.

    That makes more sense from a space POV but leaves with more question (curiosity), is the airflow from both fans directed to the back or the middle i wonder.

    If you look at the centre of the card,there is a lot of fins,so I suspect it's two intakes and it vents through the central part of the GPU??

    Re: Alleged Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 poses for photos

    Well considering one card (and the 3d render!) has the fans next to the IO, and the other doesn't, I suspect these are fake.

    (whoops, it seems one fan is closer to the IO on one side than the other, interesting...)

    Should be interesting if it's real, there seems only so much you can do with a GPU cooler and having a fan on either side is defiantly new (I've not see it before).
