After talking about the Nvidia GeForce RTX 40 Series GPU architecture tailored to the look and feel of AMD's RDNA3 graphics cards, other rumors have surfaced suggesting that it has & # 39; the planning stage of the project is over. There is even speculation about an approximate release date for next-generation Nvidia graphics cards.
Scattered publications Kopite7kimiThe Twitter account (a famous leaker) already had Nvidia’s 40 series GeForce RTX cards attached as TSMC’s 5 nm process nodes. This was accompanied by suggestions that the new cards could end up moving from the Lovelace AD102 architecture to the Hopper GH202 architecture, depending on how AMD’s RDNA3 plans were developed.
Now, however, another well-known leaker Greymon55 has entered, convinced that the planning phase of the 40 Series project is over and that the design phase will begin soon. If true, this would mean that the Lovelace (Ada) architecture could now be blocked.
Ada TSMC 5nm 100%, but I'm still not sure if it's N5 or N5P.July 24, 2021
In response to questions about expected process nodes, Greymon55 is confident that we will analyze TSMC’s 5nm and Lovelace architecture, although they don’t know if this will be standard or the optimized performance version N5 (N5P). Greymon55 also speculates on date of publication: "Not before the end of 2022".
More rumors (via TechRadar) place the flagship GPU of the 40 series on 144 transmission multiprocessors and a maximum of 18,432 CUDA cores, if based on the AD102 architecture. It’s almost double the RTX 3090’s 10,496, and while the different architectures aren’t directly comparable, those 7,936 additional cores would be a rugged chip.
Either way, Nvidia's 40 Series cards seem to have a monolithic design, rather than following AMD's multi-architecture IC MCM approach.
Just remember to take those first rumors with a grain of salt. The company does not confirm anything, so we recommend that you wait for Nvidia to make an announcement instead of giving the floor to any filter at such an early stage.
