NVIDIA’s habit of making noise in the graphics card market is no surprise. It stands in a league of its own. Come September, NVIDIA has plans to strengthen its position on the pedestal. The GeForce RTX 30 series is all set to get launched by an online event of the brand. Since the news broke out, many enthusiasts and leakers have been on alert, trying to fish out the latest on NVIDIA’s new products. Meanwhile, we were also vigilant, trying to ensure our readers do not miss out on any new information. We did the work for you and have searched the first spec leaks of the new GPUs uploaded on Twitter by 3DCenter.org.
Benchmark Scores and competition with Big Navi
The spec reveal has been made from the benchmark platform, UserBenchmark. We had earlier informed you that initially, the GeForce RTX 30 family will have four members. This particular specification sheet is being estimated to represent the RTX 3080. If sources are to be believed, the memory on this one is a GDDR6X of 10 GB capacity, functioning at a clock speed of 4750MHz. NVIDIA’s intentions with the RTX 30 are straight and simple, the promotion of its Ampere based GPUs, the word of which is out in most ears. However, another positive came out with this leak. The Ampere based GPUs were doubted for being machines with average levels of maximum chip clock. But, the rumoured RTX 3080 in its initial tests seemed to have put on a decent number of 3100MHz in this department. Certainly, not a bad start in the initial experimental phase.
The good news is that the GPU will be offered in two storage options, a 20GB VRAM and 10 GB VRAM, as revealed by the benchmark listings. NVIDIA though may tweak this as the launch nears as per their convenience. The customer with a tight pocket wouldn’t be cheering for NVIDIA should they choose to do so. Now, the more one talks of NVIDIA’s new GeForce RTX 30 series, the more he is compelled to think about AMD’s “Big Navi”. More research on that aspect suggests that the Big Navi might well be the Big Bluff. Some say AMD have underestimated the capacity of Ampere based GPUs and there Big Navi would be 1.5 times everything that the Radeon 5700 XT is. To summarize for you, some sources claim that even though Big Navi is the next big thing for AMD, it might only just match up to NVIDIA’s RTX 2080 Ti or be a little more powerful than that. But, then again we are waiting for the reveal of AMD’s RDNA 2 architecture and are hesitant to rule AMD out of the race, just yet.
NVIDIA has gauged its opponents well and it has made necessary arrangements. Tweaks and enhancements to the shader units will result in high-performance FP32 output. TimeSpy is believed to be mapping the GPU series’ performance. Whatever mapping has been revealed seems to miss out on informing the true capabilities of the Ampere tech in full. Nonetheless, we will sit tight and poised for the big reveals, come September.
