NVIDIA Next-Generation Ampere GPUs Rumored to Launch in 1H 2020

According to the latest rumors, NVIDIA is expected to launch their next-generation GPUs, codenamed “Ampere” in the first half of 2020. Even though they’ve just launched their GeForce RTX Super lineup they could surprise us again in just a few months with a replacement of their Turning graphics cards. Ampere is expected to replace their current high-end offerings like that GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and GeForce RTX 2080 Super.

With Ampere we should expect a die shrink down to the 7nm node, which will replace the 12 nm process that Turning is currently being built on. This by itself should bring more than a 50% increase in transistor density. This will result in more more performance and lower power consumption compared to the previous generation. There will also be other improvements as well. Expect ray tracing with possibly more hardware allocated for it.

One thing that is unknown is who will be manufacturing Ampere. It could be Samsung as TSMC has had some delivery issues as of late. Once we know more we will be sure to let you know!
