According to the latest industry rumors, from already very reliable industry sources such as @kopite7kimi Yes @Greymon55, Nvidia has already started testing Ada Lovelace graphics chipsin particular the graphics chip is mentioned AD102the company’s high-end chip that will bring to life both the GeForce RTX 4090 like at the GeForce RTX 4080while the information is expanded indicating that in September We would already be faced with the announcement in the company of these graphics cards with a launch similar to the one we saw with the Ampere GPUs.
This is explained by first the GeForce RTX 4080 would arriveand the rest of the GPUs that will arrive are the GeForce RTX 4090s, the same month of September, for starting at October The GeForce RTX 4070, RTX 4060 Ti, RTX 4060 and finally the RTX 4050 will arrive, also obviously we might see mid-range SUPER or Ti variants moving forward depending on the business needs facing competition generated by AMD.
Nvidia AD102 chip rumored to arrive with 18432 CUDA coresthat is to say, 71% more cores than the Nvidia GA102 chip based on the Ampère architecture, a milestone if we take into account that the company would have a big disadvantage against AMD, which is to continue using a monolithic design. These nuclei would reach a frequency of 1.80GHz to achieve an FP32 performance of at least 66.4 TFLOPsalmost Twice as much as Ampère’s high-end silicon (38.7 TFLOPs), and exactly quadruples the performance found on Nvidia TU102 GPUs (Turing) high-end (Nvidia TITAN RTX; Quadro RTX 8000 and Quadro RTX 6000).
It should be remembered that the current GeForce RTX 30s already almost reach the recommended price, but of course we are talking at a recommended price almost 2 years after its launchso if we do have the announcement of these GPUs in September (the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 were launched on September 17 and 24), it stands to reason that these prices will have to drop below the RRP in the coming weeks to go giving way to new products.
