Bare PCB of NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 leaks

Later today, NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang will officially unwrap the first Ampere-based video cards for the desktop market. In the meantime, VideoCardz came across a new leak that shows the PCB of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Founders Edition card. The photo shows the irregular shape of the board, which has been known about for some time now, and that it's quite tightly packed. There are 12 memory locations on the front plus another 12 on the back, which results in 24GB GDDR6X for the RTX 3090.
This board features both the irregular shape (reserved only to NVIDIA’s Founders Edition) and a new NVLink SLI finger that we discussed earlier. The board clearly shows 12 memory modules on each side, including the one placed right above the PCIe 4.0 slot. A dual-sided memory will allow this board to feature up to 24GB of memory. The RTX 3080, also based on GA102 GPU, should only need 10 single-sided modules and 20 dual-sided modules for the rumored 20GB variant later.
I'm also aware there's a rumor floating around that the RTX 3090 offers double the ray tracing performance of the RTX 2080 Ti. I'm not making a separate post for this rumor as this information looks fake.
