Until this moment Nvidia managed to conceal the technical specifications and performance of future video cards very well GeForce RTX 3000 “Ampere”. On the net you read hypotheses of all kinds that could be more or less spot on, but certainly there is very little. Just to stay in the so-called theme rumor, in the past few hours a alleged score of a GeForce “Ampere” at 3DMark Time Spy. Many speculate that it is an RTX 3080, RTX 3080 Ti or an RTX 3090. In short, a high-end GPU, but it is not known exactly which model.
The score, equal to 18257 points, it’s about 30% higher than that of an RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition. According to Futuremark SystemInfo, the new generation GPU would operate at 1935 MHz, while the memory would operate at 6000 MHz, a strange value because in the case of the RTX 2080 Ti the software reads 1750 MHz (14 Gbps). This is probably an incorrect reading that should not be taken into consideration. According to leaker Rogame, the test (not visible in the 3DMark public database) would have been performed by an employee of Nvidia.
As for the technical specifications of the cards, it is rumored that Nvidia is committed to three versions of the high-end GA102 GPU, successor to the current TU102. A version would constitute a hypothetical Ampere re-edition of the “RTX Titan”, with a chip equipped with 5376 CUDA cores and flanked by 24 GB of GDDR6X memory on a 384-bit bus.
Another version would be the basis of the RTX 3090/3080 Ti, with 5248 CUDA cores, 12 GB of GDDR6X memory and 384 bit bus. Finally, the third variant would be on board the RTX 3080 and would have 4352 active CUDA cores, 10 GB of GDDR6X memory and 320 bit buses. There is no certainty, however, that these are correct numbers, so take everything with great caution.
