It’s been a year since Nvidia launched the RTX 20xx series graphics card. Now it’s working on its next lineup of graphics cards name RTX 30xx to compete with the AMD. Nvidia is calling the new architecture – Ampere. It is going to host the GTC conference in March, where it might launch the new graphics card lineup. As of now, we get to know some details on the Nvidia RTX 3080 and RTX 3070.
As per a report published on the MyDrivers website, the GPUs with core codes GA103 and GA104 of the high-end lineup of the Ampere architecture family have surfaced online. And in many years, this is the first time that the Nvidia core code is ending with numeric 3.
For specification, the GA103 (RTX 3080) will have 10GB/20GB GDDR6 video memory capacity with 60 SM (Streaming Multiprocessors), 3480 stream processors, and 320-bit video memory. On the other hand, the GA104 (RTX 3070) will come with 8GB/16GB GDDR6 video memory capacity, 48 sets of SM arrays, 3072 stream processors, and 256-bit video memory.
Besides, the GPUs will be manufactured using 7nm architecture process. In comparison with the RTX 2080 and RTX 2070, the specifications, including stream processors, memory bit, memory capacity, all are increased greatly. However, it will be interesting to watch how well these GPUs will perform and how AMD will counter this.
