NVIDIA plans on releasing its new series graphics cards this year namely the RTX 3080 and RTX 3070. The company claims the hardware is based on a new architecture called “Ampere” and will bring higher capacity GPUs to the market for the first time. Rumours claim NVIDIA plans on announcing the hardware as early as next month and the specs for two of its RTX 30 series GPUs have already leaked.
The new GPUs namely the RTS 3080 and RTX 3070 appeared online with core codes GA103 and GA104. Both GPUs seem to be part of the Ampere hardware family.
- RTX 3080 (GA103) – 60 SM arrays, 3480 stream processors, 320-bit video memory, 10 / 20GB GDDR6 video memory capacity.
- RTX 3070 (GA104) – 48 SM arrays, 3072 stream processors, 256-bit video memory, 8 / 16GB GDDR6 video memory.
Both new cores will be a 7nm processor but as of now, we don’t know who will be producing them. In comparison to the previous generation of NVIDIA RTX cars, the specs seem to be greatly improved. These Ampere GPUs are said to be the equivalent to AMD’s Navi architecture so in short, these will be NVIDIA’s next-gen GPUs that will be able to handle future titles developed for the PS5 and Xbox Series X.
MyDrivers reports that NVIDIA will no doubt release a GA102 which will be the RTX 3080 Ti or Titan which will be the top-of-the-range card when released on the market.
