Ampere gets support, SLI kicks the bucket
Nvidia has released its Geforce 456.38 WHQL Game Ready driver that adds support for Ampere-based RTX 3080 and upcoming RTX 3090 graphics cards, as well as kills SLI support. It also fixes some bugs and adds support for some upcoming games.
RTX 3090 is a big beast
All three upcoming Nvidia RTX 30 series cards have been pictured next to each other, showing just how huge the RTX 3090 actually is, as well as showing the RTX 3070 for the first time.
4K at max settings with ray tracing and DLSS
Nvidia has released a video showing CD Projekt Red's upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 game running on Geforce RTX 30 series.
The BFGPU RTX 3090, RTX 3080 and RTX 3070
Nvidia has officially announced its RTX 30 series lineup, with three SKUs, the RTX 3090, RTX 3080, and the RTX 3070. Calling it the 2nd generation RTX, all the cards are based on Nvidia Ampere architecture and built using Samsung's 8N custom process.
Smaller than the current 8-pin PCIe one
Seasonic has pretty much confirmed that Nvidia will introduce the new 12-pin PCIe connector for its upcoming RTX 30 series graphics cards.
Running on 2.1GHz and with 10GB of GDDR6X memory
A possible Nvidia RTX 3080 has been spotted over in the Userbenchmark database, running at 2.1GHz clock and coming with 10GB of 19Gbps GDDR6X memory.
Suggest a possible Founders' Edition
A recent report suggested that Nvidia AIC partners are already ready with custom Ampere cards that should be available or at least close to the launch date. This also suggests that Nvidia Founders' Edition cards will also be available.
Earlier pictures might be real as Nvidia hunts for the leak
There were a couple of leaks of Nvidia's upcoming RTX Ampere lineup during the weekend, and it appears these could be real as Nvidia is now hunting for the leak. In the meantime, we now have a bit more information about the upcoming lineup.
From both Nvidia and AMD
According to a report from Digitimes, next-gen consumer graphics cards from both Nvidia and AMD could launch in September.
Roughly two months after the original GTC 2020 schedule, Nvidia is ready to host the GTC 2020 spring keynote. The choice of words "Get Amped” in the press release gives you an idea that 7nm Ampere might get released at that time.
