A report from DSOGaming claims to have found filtered specifications that allegedly come from the new generation of Ampere graphics cards.
Nvidia Ampere, filtered specifications RTX 3080Ti, 3080, 3070 and 3060
The specification table lists the four hypothetical graphics card models that will bring the GeForce RTX 3000 series to life. These models are the RTX 3080 Ti, RTX 3080, RTX 3070, and RTX 3060.
If this is true, this could be a fairly significant leak for Nvidia, who would certainly have wanted this information to be kept secret until their opening speech on May 14.
The GA100 GPU that will bring the RTX 3080 Ti to life has about 8192 CUDA cores, 256 RT units, and 1024 Tensor units. Based on this information, Nvidia would double the number of CUDA cores and Tensor cores compared to the RTX 2080 Ti, while the RT cores would increase from 68 units to 256. This should lead to a strong increase in ray tracing performance.
There are two important points about this “leak” that need to be clarified. First, there is absolutely no way of knowing for certain at this stage whether it is genuine. Secondly, it is the kind of information that could easily be falsified or “guessed”. This “leak” as such requires a lot of skepticism, but cannot be completely ruled out.
We know that Ampere will provide an enormous increase in graphics performance compared to Turing, we are talking about 50%. For now, Nvidia is calling everyone to its GTC 2020 event, where the new Ampere architecture will be presented and explained.
