Ampere would arrive at the end of March and the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 at the beginning of June
New rumors continue to come about Nvidia’s next graphic architecture, Ampere, where industry analysts already indicate that this new generation of graphics based on a 7nm manufacturing process will be officially announced during the GTC 2020, that is, in March, while the first high-end graphics will arrive in June, and this would be the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080, which would be officially presented at Computex 2020.
According to these sources, Nvidia’s CEO and co-founder, Jensen Huang, is not in a hurry to bring his Ampere architecture to the market, largely due to how well Turing architecture is positioned in the market against the competition of AMD Especially in the high-end segment, where the GeForce RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti have no competition, so it makes no sense to launch a new short-term microarchitecture.
However, with AMD preparing its own graphics card with RayTracing by hardware for next year, the one named “Nvidia Killer”, the green team is preparing to get ahead of the red team with Ampere in the first half of 2020.
According to Raymond James analyst Chris Caso, Nvidia has decided to delay the launch of Ampere for a few months. This delay would lead us to the GTC next year, which will take place at the end of March. According to Chris, Nvidia plans to start introducing Ampere with a new Artificial Intelligence product focused on the data center, that is, a TESLA accelerator based on Ampere.
The first Nvidia GeForce RTX 3000 to reach the market would be the GeForce RTX 3080, which would be announced at the beginning of June during Computex 2020. The source did not reveal any details about the GPU, except for a marked improvement in performance due to employment of a new graphic architecture together with a new and advanced manufacturing process.
