Nvidia ampere gpu next gen consoles
NVIDIA is reportedly preparing to launch the next-gen Ampere 7nm process GPU in the GTC version in March next year, and then launch the high-end RTX 3080 at Computex in June. Although
is still not well understood, rumors have been spreading hints that NVIDIA is discussing Ampere GPU's marketing strategies in depth.
There are rumors that given the continued success of Turing-based chips with no direct competitors, NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang is in no rush to launch Ampere GPUs. However, there are other rumors that AMD is internally preparing a new high-end GPU called the NVIDIA Killer. NVIDIA seems interested in launching the Ampere series of products in the middle of next year, again surpassing AMD.
Raymond James analyst Chris Caso told HKEPC that NVIDIA started rolling out after delaying the launch of Ampere TESLA accelerator AI products targeting GTC. The gaming-focused GeForce RTX 3000 GPU will be shown later at Computex 2020.
is very similar to previous generations NVIDIA will start with high-end Ampere cards, especially RTX 3070, RTX 3080 and later RTX 3080 Ti. RTX 3080 is expected to launch around June.
Following this, NVIDIA will move up the food chain to mid-range consumer products, such as the RTX 3050 and RTX 3060, to replace the existing Turing equivalents. This is expected to happen in late summer.
As for the specs we can expect, guesswork is common, but improved ray tracing almost occurs, and we can also see better frame buffers, higher clock speeds, and lower TDP levels.
is more interesting to consumers, Ampere cards are said to be listed cheaper than Turing cards (especially the higher-end RTX 3080 and RTX 3080 Ti), presumably to compete with AMD.
