NVIDIA Now Ships GeForce RTX 4080 With AD103-301 GPU

The NVIDIA AD103-301 GPU has been confirmed by Gainward

NVIDIA to introduce new types of Ada GPUs.

Gainward has become the first company to confirm a new AD103 GPU variant. The updated silicon called AD103-301 brings minor changes to end users, but will help board partners keep cost down.

The first rumors about XX0/XX1 GPU variants surfaced last week with updated RTX 4070 non-Ti specs. NVIDIA has informed board partners that two GPU variants will be available for this SKU. This was later confirmed by HKEPC who provided more information on the mentioned AD104-25X GPU variants for the upcoming GeForce model:

We can now confirm that board partners have already been informed of a couple of GPU specs for the RTX 4070. The “251” GPU will enter mass production a few weeks after the “250,” and will require “a few fewer components,” a source claims. Ultimately, this should reduce the cost of the GPU, but not significantly.

This change has already been implemented on the RTX 4080 model shipped with the AD103-300 or AD103-301 GPUs, both of which are said to offer the same performance and capabilities, but are a new design that requires changes in the PCB.

Gainward confirms that both variants include the same clocks, TDP and GPU configuration. Furthermore, the company hasn’t released a new revision to existing cards (such as we had with the LHR models), which means that the AD103-300 and 301 are essentially the same GPUs.
