NVIDIA will introduce the Ampere GPU architecture of next generation and latest GeForce RTX 3000 graphics cards later in this year, but now it seems to have some joky new specs that will be eaten from the current rumors.
In the Ampere family of GPUs, MyDrivers reports on two new GPUs: GA103 and GA104. The GA103 is an interesting entry as we’d expected from the GA102, but GA103 is supposed to power and features some great specs in the next GeForce RTX 3080.
The GA103 is reported to pack a memory bus of 3,840 stream processors and 60 SMs and 10/20 GB of GDDR6. It’s an interesting 10/20 GB VRAM option, since we didn’t have a 20 GB VRAM card previously. We have 3072 stream processors, 48 SMs and 8/16 GB GDDR6 on a 256-bit memory bus, switching to GA104— this takes shape in the GeForce RTX 3070.
We would expect the GA103 consumer card to be 10 GB GDDR6, while the Quadro RTX 3000 pro level cards will be 20 GB. Nonetheless, NVIDIA might surprise gamers with 20 GB VRAM on GeForce RTX 3080, but I doubt that very clearly.
I want to see GA102, the power supply for the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and a new TITAN RTX graphics card powered by Ampere.
