In the second half of 2020, AMD will reveal to the world Navi 2X video cards based on the 2nd generation RDNA graphics architecture. They will bring hardware acceleration of ray tracing with them and are expected to compete with top Nvidia solutions.
Jensen Huang’s team is also not idle. In the laboratories of the “green” chip maker, work is underway on the successors of the Turing graphics accelerators, the information about which becomes more with each. It is expected that most of the information comes from unofficial sources and belongs to the category of “ducks” and “stuffing”. However, some of them still deserve attention.
Fresh leak came from the “iron” enthusiast, known under the pseudonym Retired engineer. In the past, he was one of the first to talk about the “chipset design” and the (8 + 1) -crystalline layout of AMD EPYC server processors based on the Zen 2 architecture. On his Twitter, he published a table with preliminary characteristics and the timing of the announcement of the GeForce RTX 3000 series video cards. True, to date, the record has been deleted.
According to the source, the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3000 video cards will be presented in the next quarter. This theory is supported by the Chinese web publication China Times. According to him, large vendors such as ASUS, MSI and Gigabyte, in the near future will seek to quickly empty the inventory of GeForce RTX 2000 cards, freeing up space for new generation graphics adapters.
Hopefully, Nvidia will shed light on Ampere video accelerators as part of an upcoming speech by CEO Jensen Huang. Recall, May 14 at 16:00 Kiev time on the Nvidia YouTube channel will be published his report, originally scheduled for GTC 2020.
