We could see the Nvidia RTX 3080, Nvidia’s subsequent era flagship graphics card, at Computex 2020 in June, in line with new rumors.
This would apparently comply with a launch of Nvidia’s new 7nm Ampere structure in March, across the time of Nvidia’s GPU Technology Conference (GTC) occasion in San Jose.
According to an analyst (Chris Caso of Raymond James), Nvidia has pushed again the launch of its Ampere graphics playing cards due to how effectively its present crop of Turing GPUs, together with the RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti, are doing – particularly with regards to efficiency versus AMD’s graphics playing cards.
While Nvidia actually has the efficiency edge in the intervening time, AMD has made it clear that it’s constructing an ‘Nvidia killer’ graphics card that may launch in mid-2020. By launching its new era of Ampere GPUs in March, Nvidia could be touchdown a pre-emptive blow to AMD’s high-end plans.
Coming to Computex
Chris Caso additionally claims (in line with HKEPC) that Nvidia will launch the RTX 3080 round Computex 2020.
Computex is a big computing present in Taipei, Taiwan, and Nvidia is normally an enormous presence there, so it’s not too outlandish to suppose that Nvidia could maintain an occasion throughout the present (or on an in depth date) to announce its new flagship card.
The rumor additionally means that the primary Ampere card could be a GPU for datacenters, with the RTX 2080 being the primary client Ampere card. The rumors trace that Nvidia will launch high-end GPUs, just like the RTX 3080 and RTX 3070 first, with extra mid-range reasonably priced playing cards, just like the RTX 3060, coming later.
Other rumors across the RTX 3000 sequence counsel that these playing cards will supply considerably higher ray tracing efficiency, in addition to barely larger clock speeds and decrease TDPs in comparison with RTX 2000 playing cards.
We’ve additionally heard recommendations that the high-end RTX 3000 GPUs will be extra reasonably priced than the RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti. These two current GPUs are undoubtedly a few of the finest GPUs in the world, however they’re additionally extremely costly.
If even a few of these new rumors are true, it makes us very excited to see what Nvidia has in retailer for 2020.
