NVIDIA announced their RTX 3000 cards on September 1st, 2020 to be released on September 17th for the RTX 3080 and September 24th for the RTX 3090. The RTX 3070 will be available from October though there is no specific date announced yet. 
Well reviewers started receiving the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 graphics cards for reviews to be released on 17th September. Till then we cannot have any performance numbers from our favourite reviewers but looks like NVIDIA has permitted the reviewers to unbox and give a first look and over-view to their viewers.

For the starters it is important to note that there are two different cards from NVIDIA - one founders edition which is what you say in the key note & the other one is the reference model that the AIB partners will receive based on which the AIB partners will design their own coolers and PCBs.

When you first open the box you will be greeted with the RTX 3080 card with its name engraved on the cooler. Below the card, once you lift the card out of the box, you get a 2 8-pin to 12-pin power connector adapter and 2 user manuals.
The RTX 3080 does not support SLI or 2-Way GPU and same stands true for the RTX 3070 and other lower end models. Only the RTX 3090 will have support for SLI. The RTX 3080 also has a 45° power connector on the mid-top of the card.
As reported by Linus Sebastian from LMG, the design of the fan blades on the fans - one on the front and one of the back - are different.
