NVIDIA Ampere, AMD Big Navi GPUs likely to debut in September

Nvidia did virtually host its GPU Technology Conference (GTC) 2020 recently and talked about Ampere architecture. Nobody in the conference mentioned anything about RTX 3000 series. Typically in line with previously held conferences, it does not talk about its future discrete gaming cards.

But sources indicate both AMD and Nvidia will make their movie and release its graphics card with new architecture by September 2020.

2020 The year of all things AMD?

This is a big year for AMD as it announced B550 motherboard chips, ready to release next month by various brands. It also will be launching A520 motherboards along with Ryzen 4000 series CPUs. Ryzen 4000 series Renoir APUs also made an appearance, expecting to be released anytime this year. However, it’s unlike to support PCIe 4.0 lanes. So with the release of a newer discrete gaming graphic card lineups, it is a very busy year.

This is hardly a surprise since Dr Lisa Su already announced her plan to release Big Navi by 2020. AMD has a lot of catching up to do against Nvidia GeForce offerings.

An array of GPUs to arrive

That doesn’t mean Nvidia’s RTX 3000 series with Ampere will be overshadowed, not even close. There’s also Intel Xi discrete graphic card launch that is expected by December but that’s a long time from September. While many will anticipate Nvidia RTX successor variants, we just can’t help but hope Big Navi can meet Big Expectations. It just a matter of months for its release. So we’ll most likely get to report about various SKUs from both graphics card makers.
