Nvidia new gpu driver
New rumors indicate that NVIDIA is preparing to launch its new Ampere series of GPU product lines later this year. These include the famous GeForce RTX 3080 Ti (or whatever name NVIDIA chooses), which is reported to be 40% higher in performance than the existing RTX 2080 Ti. The
leak comes from a relatively new source on Twitter called @KittyCorgi, so we recommend handling rumors with a certain degree of skepticism. However, if the leak is true, it is a very tempting thing.
This tweet contains a list of specifications for no less than five different GPUs, which are configured as part of the Ampere series and are based on Samsung's 10nm process node. Before we dive in, it's worth noting that each will allow for ray tracing, even the lowest spec, inexpensively. The suggestion is that NVIDIA's main goal of using next-gen GPUs is to improve RTX performance across the board.
First of all, we have a GPU codenamed GA102, which will become the most powerful graphics card in this series and will lead the Ampere product line. The name indicates that it will serve as the successor to the TU102 GPU, which currently forms the backbone of the RTX 2080 Ti and RTX Titan GPUs. It has 5376 CUDA cores, 12GB of memory, and 384-bit bus width. We will likely see GA102 used in RTX 3080 Ti and next generation Titan equivalent products.
continues, we come to GA103 with 3840 CUDA cores, 12GB memory and 320-bit bus width, the performance improvement on RTX 2080 Ti is about 10%. This should replace RTX 3080.
Next, we have GA104, which has 3072 CUDA cores, 8GB of memory, and 256-bit bus width. The suggestion is that GA104 will power RTX 3070, and its performance will reach 95% of RTX 2080 Ti. If the hierarchy shown here is related to this, we can view the powerful features of the RTX 2080 Ti at a more affordable price.
In order to complete the new GPU, we have 1920 CUDA cores, 6 GB memory, 192-bit bus width GA106 and 1280 CUDA cores, 4 GB memory and 128-bit bus width GA107. We imagine that they will target the budget market.
As always, before the official NVIDIA announcement, prepare the salt shaker to get close to the latest leak.
