According to the source, the reason why NVIDIA has one fan at the bottom and one fan at the top is to facilitate airflow over two chips, not one. Coreteks guesses that this chip is something called a traversal coprocessor that will aid in the raytracing ability of the cards. Know the RTX cores that were embedded inside the chip in the RTX 2000 series? well, the source posits that this time around they will sit in a seperate coprocessor on the other side of the PCB.Interesting rumor, will be interesting to see if it's true!
