By the end of 2020, NVIDIA should launch a new generation of video cards based on the Ampere architecture, made using the 7-nm process technology. According to the portal Tweaktown, their probable characteristics leaked into the network.
The source was MyDrivers, reporting two new Ampere GPUs, codenamed GA103 and GA104. It is assumed that the first is hiding the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080, and the second is its younger version of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070.
According to the data provided, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 should receive 10 or 20 GB of video memory, 3480 stream processors and a 320-bit bus.
As for the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070, its characteristics include 8 or 16 GB of video memory, 3072 stream processors and a 256-bit bus.
The source expects NVIDIA to offer 10 GB of GDDR6 video memory in the consumer version of RTX 3080, while the more professional Quadro RTX 3000 will feature 20 GB of memory. On the other hand, a company can surprise users and roll out 20 GB in a consumer solution, which, however, today seems dubious.
Probable characteristics of the new cards:
GA103 (GeForce RTX 3080)
10/20 GB GDDR6 video memory
320 bit bus
60 streaming multiprocessors
3480 stream processors
GA104 (GeForce RTX 3070)
8/16 GB GDDR6 video memory
48 stream multiprocessors
3072 stream processors
