Following this morning’s GeForce RTX 3080 Ti report, kopite7kimi has returned with fresh rumors regarding NVIDIA, which is purportedly prepping two additional Ampere graphics cards: the GeForce RTX 3060 and GeForce RTX 3050 Ti.
According to kopite7kimi, the GeForce RTX 3060 and GeForce RTX 3050 Ti leverage a new Ampere GPU codenamed GA106. These graphics cards will supposedly feature 3,840 CUDA Cores and 3,584 CUDA Cores, respectively.
In comparison, NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3060 Ti (which is already being sold, apparently), features 4,864 CUDA Cores.
The memory configuration of these graphics cards are unknown, but if its predecessors are anything to go by, the GeForce RTX 3060 should come with 6 GB of GDDR6.
Ah, the desktop cards based on GA106 will be called— kopite7kimi4virgil (@kopite7kimi) November 4, 2020
RTX 3050 Ti(3584FP32).
😅I don't know if it will change in the future.
kopite7kimi also shared a little bit about the process technology that NVIDIA will use for its Hopper architecture, which will presumably power the next-generation GeForce RTX 40 Series.
Echoing a claim made back in March, kopite7kimi has confirmed that two of NVIDIA’s Hopper-based GPUs, the GH100 (data center accelerator) and GH20X (GeForce) will be manufactured on TSMC’s 5 nm process.
Previous rumors suggested that NVIDIA could be planning an Ampere refresh on 7 nm.
I don't think this is news: Both H100 and GH20X will use TSMC 5nm.— kopite7kimi4virgil (@kopite7kimi) November 4, 2020
It's too early to talk about them. Everything can change.
