NVIDIA is readying its next generation of GPUs, under the RTX 3000 series, based on the Ampere GPU chip. The Ampere GA102 GPU, which will be powering the GeForce RTX 3090 & GeForce RTX 3080 GPU has now been pictured up close.
The die of the Ampere GA102-300-A1 GPU was posted by Chiphell user PolyMorph and gives us a close look at the brains of the upcoming flagship NVIDIA GeForce RTX card, RTX 3090. Take a look:
Leaks have suggested that this chip will feature 5248 CUDA cores or 82 SMs. These figures will put the RTX 3090 20% ahead in core count in comparison to the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti. This SKU is said to be used in the RTX 3090 only. The RTX 3080 TI will apparently feature another variant of the GA102 Ampere GPU, named GA102-200-KD-A1. That chip will have 4352 CUDA cores in 68 SMs.
NVIDIA is going to make the official announcement of the next-gen cards on September 1. Thoughts? Hit us up in the comments, down below!
