GALAX Confirms GeForce RTX 3080 20GB and RTX 3060, RTX 3060 Matches RTX 2080

An alleged event by GALAX targeted at distributors in China revealed up to three upcoming SKUs in NVIDIA's RTX 30-series. This comes as yet another confirmation from a major NVIDIA AIC partner about the 20 GB variant of the GeForce RTX 3080. The RTX 3080 originally launched with 10 GB memory earlier this month, and it is widely expected that NVIDIA fills the price-performance gap between this $700 SKU and its $1,500 sibling. The RTX 3080 uses twenty 8 Gbit GDDR6X memory chips (two chips per 32-bit data-path), much like how the RTX 3090 achieves its 24 GB memory amount.

Elsewhere we see GALAX mention the RTX 3060, a performance-segment SKU positioned under the RTX 3070. You'll notice that the product-stack graph by GALAX suggests performance comparisons to previous-generation SKUs. The RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 are faster than everything from the previous generation, while the RTX 3070, which is coming next month, is shown trading blows with both the RTX 2080 Ti and the RTX 2080 Super. In this same graph, the RTX 3060 is shown matching up to the RTX 2080 (non-Super), a card NVIDIA originally launched at $700.

NVIDIA's Ampere-based Quadro RTX Graphics Card Pictured

Here is the first picture of an alleged next-generation Quadro RTX graphics card based on the "Ampere" architecture, courtesy YouTube channel "Moore's Law is Dead." The new Quadro RTX 6000-series shares many of its underpinnings with the recently launched GeForce RTX 3080 and RTX 3090, in being based on the 8 nm "GA102" silicon. The reference board design retains a lateral blower-type cooling solution, with the blower drawing in air from both sides of the card, through holes punched in the PCB, "Fermi" style. The card features the latest NVLink bridge connector, and unless we're mistaken, it features a single power input near its tail end, which is very likely a 12-pin Molex MicroFit 3.0 input.

As for specifications, "Moore's Law is Dead," shared a handful of alleged specifications that include maxing out of the "GA102" silicon, with all its 42 TPCs (84 SMs) enabled, working out to 10,752 CUDA cores. As detailed in an older story about the next-gen Quadro, NVIDIA is prioritizing memory size over bandwidth, which means this card will receive 48 GB of conventional 16 Gbps GDDR6 memory across the GPU's 384-bit wide memory interface. The 48 GB is achieved using twenty four 16 Gbit GDDR6 memory chips (two chips per 32-bit wide data-path). This configuration provides 768 GB/s of memory bandwidth, which is only 8 GB/s higher than that of the GeForce RTX 3080. The release date of the next-gen Quadro RTX will depend largely on the supply of 16 Gbit GDDR6 memory chips, with leading memory manufacturers expecting 2021 shipping, unless NVIDIA has secured an early production batch.

The Reason Why NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3080 GPU Uses 19 Gbps GDDR6X Memory and not Faster Variants

When NVIDIA announced its next-generation GeForce RTX 3080 and 3090 Ampere GPUs, it specified that the memory found in the new GPUs will be Micron's GDDR6X variant with 19 Gbps speed. However, being that there are faster GDDR6X modules already available in a 21 Gbps variant, everyone was left wondering why NVIDIA didn't just use the faster memory from Micron. That is exactly what Igor's Lab, a technology website, has been wondering as well. They have decided to conduct testing with an infrared camera that measures the heat produced. To check out the full testing setup and how they tested everything, you can go here and read it, including watching the video embedded.

Micron chips like GDDR5, GDDR5X, and GDDR6 are rated for the maximum junction temperature (TJ Max) of 100 degrees Celsius. It is recommended that these chips should run anywhere from 0C to 95C for the best results. However, when it comes to the new GDDR6X modules found in the new graphics cards, they are not yet any official specifications available to the public. Igor's Lab estimates that they can reach 120C before they become damaged, meaning that TJ Max should be 110C or 105C. When measuring the temperature of GDDR6X modules, Igor found out that the hottest chip ran at 104C, meaning that the chips are running pretty close to the TJ Max they are (supposedly) specified. It is NVIDIA's PCB design decisions that are leading up to this, as the hottest chips are running next to voltage regulators, which can get pretty hot on their own.

NVIDIA's Top "Ampere" Based Quadro RTX Features 10,752 CUDA Cores, 48GB Memory

Possible specifications of NVIDIA's next-generation flagship Quadro RTX professional graphics card leaked to the web. The SKU is possibly based on the same 8 nm "GA102" silicon as the GeForce RTX 3090, but features more of the silicon unlocked. It apparently features 10,752 CUDA cores, or exactly one TPC (two SMs) more than the RTX 3090. With 84 SM (42 TPC), the unnamed Quadro RTX should feature 84 RT cores, 336 Tensor cores, and 336 TMUs.

NVIDIA's choice for memory for the upcoming Quadro RTX flagship is interesting, as it's prioritizing memory size over bandwidth (which is more relevant in the professional visualization use-case dealing with large data sets). The card features 48 GB of conventional GDDR6 memory clocked at 16 Gbps over the chip's 384-bit wide memory interface, which should work out to 768 GB/s of memory bandwidth. The max GPU Boost frequency is pegged at 1860 MHz. There's no word on availability. Pictured below is the previous-gen Quadro RTX 5000.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Ampere Launching Before the RTX 3060?

In possible anticipation of AMD's Radeon RX 6000 RDNA2 series, NVIDIA is reportedly fleshing out the upper performance segment of its GeForce RTX 30-series, with the RTX 3060 Ti reportedly launching before the RTX 3060. Early August, we heard reports of NVIDIA pushing its RTX 3070 and RTX 3060 series launches beyond September. It is turning out that way, as the RTX 3090 and RTX 3080 launches dominate this month, with an RTX 3070 launching some time in October. There's still no official word on SKUs beyond the RTX 3070. VideoCardz has some idea. The RTX 3060 Ti - a possible RTX 2060 Super successor, in being launched before the RTX 3060.

Based on the same "GA104" silicon as the RTX 3070, the RTX 3060 Ti is configured with 4,864 CUDA cores, 38 RT cores, 152 Tensor cores, 152 TMUs, and possibly 64 ROPs. It comes with 8 GB of GDDR6 memory across a 256-bit memory interface. Given that the RTX 3070 base specs cover 14 Gbps memory frequency, one can only expect the same (or lesser) memory frequency. With its typical board power expected to be between 180 W to 200 W, one can even expect custom-design cards with single 8-pin PCIe power connectors.

GeForce RTX 3070 Uses 14Gbps GDDR6 Memory: ZOTAC and ASUS

NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce RTX 3070 performance segment graphics card uses 14 Gbps GDDR6 memory speed, according to the product page of the ZOTAC RTX 3070 Twin Edge (model: ZT-A30700E-10P), and the RTX 3070 DUAL by ASUS. This settles speculation around NVIDIA using the fastest available 16 Gbps GDDR6 memory for the RTX 3070. The company is using the even faster 19.5 Gbps and 19 Gbps GDDR6X memory for the RTX 3090 and RTX 3080, which it co-developed with Micron Technology. The use of 14 Gbps GDDR6 across a 256-bit wide memory bus gives the RTX 3070 the same 448 GB/s memory bandwidth as the RTX 2070. NVIDIA plans to launch the GeForce RTX 3070 some time in October, with prices starting at USD $499.

NVIDIA Announces GeForce Ampere RTX 3000 Series Graphics Cards: Over 10000 CUDA Cores

NVIDIA just announced its new generation GeForce "Ampere" graphics card series. The company is taking a top-to-down approach with this generation, much like "Turing," by launching its two top-end products, the GeForce RTX 3090 24 GB, and the GeForce RTX 3080 10 GB graphics cards. Both cards are based on the 8 nm "GA102" silicon. Join us as we live blog the pre-recorded stream by NVIDIA, hosted by CEO Jen-Hsun Huang.

Lenovo Lists "GeForce RTX 3070 Ti" with 16GB GDDR6 Memory

Lenovo has allegedly listed an unreleased NVIDIA GeForce "Ampere" graphics card as an option for its Legion T7 gaming desktop. The specs sheet speaks of a "GeForce RTX 3070 Ti" with "16 GB of GDDR6" memory, in what may be the first of many future product stack refreshes NVIDIA has planned. No other specs of the RTX 3070 Ti have been mentioned, but the doubling in memory size foreshadows a similar treatment for the RTX 3080. Currently, the RTX 3080 is being released with 10 GB of GDDR6X. The flagship RTX 3090 has 24 GB of it. There is a vast gorge in the new product stack, between the $700 RTX 3080 10 GB, and the $1,500 RTX 3090 24 GB, which is ripe for a possible "RTX 3080 Ti" with 20 GB of memory, among other features.

PNY Announces GeForce RTX 30 Series XLR8 Graphics Cards

PNY today announced the expansion of its NVIDIA GeForce RTX GPU family by adding the new PNY XLR8 Gaming GeForce RTX 30 Series. The PNY XLR8 Gaming GeForce RTX 30 Series line of GPUs will be available in three different configurations: RTX 3090, RTX 3080 and RTX 3070, all powered by the all-new NVIDIA Ampere architecture, providing enhanced gaming realism, powerful real time ray tracing, extreme overclocking capabilities, and cutting-edge features that will power-up your performance and accelerate the way you game.

The new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Series GPUs, the 2nd generation of RTX, features new RT Cores, Tensor Cores and streaming multiprocessors, bringing stunning visuals, amazingly fast frame rates, and AI acceleration to games and creative applications. Powered by the NVIDIA Ampere architecture, which delivers increases of up to 1.9X performance-per-watt over the previous generation, the RTX 30 Series effortlessly powers graphics experiences at all resolutions, even up to 8K at the top end. The GeForce RTX 3090, 3080, and 3070 represent the greatest GPU generational leap in the history of NVIDIA.

AMD Rolls Out Radeon RX 5300: 1408 SP, 3GB GDDR6

AMD sneaked out the Radeon RX 5300 desktop discrete graphics card. At this point it's unclear if the card is an OEM exclusive, or if a retail channel launch is imminent. The RX 5300 desktop features an identical core-configuration to the RX 5300M mobile GPU that's been out since late-2019. The desktop RX 5300 surfaced on the Geekbench database in May 2020.

Based on the 7 nm "Navi 14" silicon, the RX 5300 is endowed with the same 1,408 stream processor count as the RX 5500 XT, but the memory amount and bus width has been cut down by 25%. It hence has 3 GB of GDDR6 memory across a 96-bit wide memory interface, which at 14 Gbps puts out 168 GB/s of memory bandwidth. The GPU ticks at 1448 MHz "game" clocks, and 1645 MHz boost. The typical board power of the RX 5300 is rated at 100 W, which means it requires at least a 6-pin PCIe power input and cannot make do with slot-only power. There's no word on pricing, since we have no info on channel-based availability.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 and 3080 Specifications Leaked

Just ahead of the September launch, specifications of NVIDIA's upcoming RTX Ampere lineup have been leaked by industry sources over at VideoCardz. According to the website, three alleged GeForce SKUs are being launched in September - RTX 3090, RTX 3080, and RTX 3070. The new lineup features major improvements: 2nd generation ray-tracing cores and 3rd generation tensor cores made for AI and ML. When it comes to connectivity and I/O, the new cards use the PCIe 4.0 interface and have support for the latest display outputs like HDMI 2.1 and DisplayPort 1.4a.

The GeForce RTX 3090 comes with 24 GB of GDDR6X memory running on a 384-bit bus at 19.5 Gbps. This gives a memory bandwidth capacity of 936 GB/s. The card features the GA102-300 GPU with 5,248 CUDA cores running at 1695 MHz, and is rated for 350 W TGP (board power). While the Founders Edition cards will use NVIDIA's new 12-pin power connector, non-Founders Edition cards, from board partners like ASUS, MSI and Gigabyte, will be powered by two 8-pin connectors. Next up is specs for the GeForce RTX 3080, a GA102-200 based card that has 4,352 CUDA cores running at 1710 MHz, paired with 10 GB of GDDR6X memory running at 19 Gbps. The memory is connected with a 320-bit bus that achieves 760 GB/s bandwidth. The board is rated at 320 W and the card is designed to be powered by dual 8-pin connectors. And finally, there is the GeForce RTX 3070, which is built around the GA104-300 GPU with a yet unknown number of CUDA cores. We only know that it has the older non-X GDDR6 memory that runs at 16 Gbps speed on a 256-bit bus. The GPUs are supposedly manufactured on TSMC's 7 nm process, possibly the EUV variant.

NVIDIA Releases GeForce MX450 with PCI-Express 4.0 Interface

NVIDIA released a mysterious new mobile GPU that has us scratching our heads over the silicon that could be driving it. The new GeForce MX450 is an entry-mainstream mobile GPU that apparently ships with a PCI-Express gen 4.0 bus interface, something only NVIDIA's "Ampere" GPUs feature. The product page for the MX450 doesn't list out any other specs, than its memory type support including new GDDR6 memory (supported only on NVIDIA architectures "Turing" or later). Interestingly, it also lists GDDR5 as one of its memory options. PCI-Express 4.0 is prominently listed as one of its specs.

Upon digging some more among device IDs, we've come across the ID of the GDDR5 variant, with the ASIC code "GP107-670-A1," and the silicon is based on the much older "Pascal" architecture, which lacks PCIe gen 4 support. The GDDR6 variant eludes us. This is the SKU which could be based on a newer architecture, given its support for GDDR6 and PCIe gen 4. NVIDIA's GeForce MX line of entry-mainstream mobile GPUs are built to performance/power targets, and wildly vary with the underlying tech. They've been historically a means for NVIDIA to clear inventory of older generation ASICs to notebook manufacturers, who get put the NVIDIA logo on their products, and advertise discrete graphics. Given this, the use of a newer (even unreleased) generation of GPUs comes as a surprise.

KFA2 Intros GeForce GTX 1650 GDDR6 EX PLUS Graphics Card

GALAX's European brand KFA2 launched the GeForce GTX 1650 GDDR6 EX PLUS graphics card. The card looks identical to the one pictured below, but with the 6-pin PCIe power input removed, relying entirely on the PCIe slot for power. Based on the 12 nm "TU116" silicon, the GPU features 896 "Turing" CUDA cores, and talks to 4 GB of GDDR6 memory across a 128-bit wide memory interface. With a memory data rate of 12 Gbps, the chip has 192 GB/s of memory bandwidth on tap. The GPU max boost frequency is set at 1605 MHz, with a software-based 1635 MHz "one click OC" mode. The cooling solution consists of an aluminium mono-block heatsink that's ventilated by a pair of 80 mm fans. Display outputs include one each of DisplayPort 1.4, HDMI 2.0b, and dual-link DVI-D. Available now in the EU, the KFA2 GeForce GTX 1650 GDDR6 EX PLUS is priced at 129€ (including taxes).

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 "Ampere" Alleged PCB Picture Surfaces

As we are getting close to September 1st, the day NVIDIA launches its upcoming GeForce RTX graphics cards based on Ampere architecture, we are getting even more leaks. Today, an alleged PCB of the NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce RTX 3090 has been pictured and posted on social media. The PCB appears to be a 3rd party design coming from one of NVIDIA's add-in board (AIB) partners - Colorful. The picture is blurred out on the most of the PCB and has Intel CPU covering the GPU die area to hide the information. There are 11 GDDR6X memory modules covering the surrounding of the GPU and being very near it. Another notable difference is the NVLink finger change, as there seems to be the new design present. Check out the screenshot of the Reddit thread and PCB pictures below:

Xe-HPG is the Performance Gaming Graphics Architecture to Look Out for from Intel

Intel appears to have every intention of addressing the performance gaming segment with its Xe graphics architecture. According to information leaked to the web by VideoCardz, Xe-HPG (high performance gaming?) represents a product vertical dedicated to the gaming segment. Among the other verticals are Xe-HPC (high performance compute). The Xe-HPG graphics architecture is being developed for a 2021 market launch. It will feature all the client-segment staples, including a conventional PCI-Express interface, and GDDR6 memory instead of HBM. Intel may also eye DirectX 12 Ultimate logo compliance. Intel's Xe discrete GPU and scalar processor development is already de-coupled with Intel's foundry business development, and so the company could contract external foundries to manufacture these chips.

As for specs, it is learned that each Xe-HP "tile" (a silicon die sub-unit that adds up in MCMs for higher tiers of Xe scalar processors), features 512 execution units (EUs). Compare this to the Xe-LP iGPU solution found in the upcoming "Tiger Lake" processor, which has 96. Intel has been able to design scalar processors with up to four tiles, adding up to 2,048 EUs. It remains to be seen if each tile on the scalar processors also include the raster hardware needed for the silicon to function as a GPU. The number of tiles on Xe-HPG are not known, but it reportedly features GDDR6 memory, and so the tile could be a variation of the Xe-HP. Intel SVP and technology head Raja Koduri is expected to detail the near-future of Intel architectures at a virtual event later today, and Xe-HPG is expected to come up.

Video Memory Sizes Set to Swell as NVIDIA Readies 20GB and 24GB GeForce Amperes

NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 20-series "Turing" graphics card series did not increase video memory sizes in comparison to GeForce GTX 10-series "Pascal," although the memory itself is faster on account of GDDR6. This could change with the GeForce RTX 30-series "Ampere," as the company looks to increase memory sizes across the board in a bid to shore up ray-tracing performance. WCCFTech has learned that in addition to a variety of strange new memory bus widths, such as 320-bit, NVIDIA could introduce certain higher variants of its RTX 30-series cards with video memory sizes as high as 20 GB and 24 GB.

Memory sizes of 20 GB or 24 GB aren't new for NVIDIA's professional-segment Quadro products, but it's certainly new for GeForce, with only the company's TITAN-series products breaking the 20 GB-mark at prices due north of $2,000. Much of NVIDIA's high-end appears to be resting on segmentation of the PG132 common board design, coupled with the GA102 silicon, from which the company could carve out several SKUs spaced far apart in the company's product stack. NVIDIA's next-generation GeForce "Ampere" family is expected to debut in September 2020, with product launches in the higher-end running through late-Q3 and Q4 of 2020.

NVIDIA Seemingly Producing Yet Another GTX 1650 Variant Based on TU-116

NVIDIA's GTX 1650 has already seen more action and revisions within its own generation than most GPUs ever have in the history of graphics cards, with NVIDIA having updated not only its memory (from 4 GB GDDR5 with 128 GB/s bandwidth to 4 GB GDDR6 memory for 192 GB/s bandwidth), but also by carving up different silicon chips to provide the same part to market. The original GTX 1650 made use of NVIDIA's TU117 chips with 896 CUDA cores, which was then superseded by the TU116-based GTX 1650 SUPER, which mightily increased the GTX 1650's execution units (1280) and bandwidth (256-bit bus). There was also a TU106-based GTX 1650, which was just bonkers - a chip originally used on the RTX 2060 was thus repurposed and cut-down.

Now, another TU-116 variant is also available, which NVIDIA carved down from its GTX 1650 SUPER chips. These go back to the original releases' 896 CUDA cores and 128-bit bus, whilst keeping the GDDR6 memory ticking at 12 Gbps and clocks set at 1410 MHz Base and 1590 MHz Boost. This card achieves feature parity with the TU106-based GTX 1650, but trades in the crazy 445 mm² TU106 die for the much more svelte 284 mm² TU116 one. NVIDIA seems to be doing what it can by cleaning house of any and all leftover chips in preparation for their next-gen release - consumer confusion be damned.

MSI Launches Radeon RX 5600 XT Gaming M(X) Graphics Card

MSI has found some ways to reduce pricing on their Radeon RX 5600 XT Gaming X series, and has materialized these savings on a new product. The RX 5600 XT Gaming M(X) sees itself as a lower-priced variant of the card, featuring 14 Gbps GDDR6 memory and making use of a cooler that is more alike the Armor series we know from the RX 580 models.

The new graphics card still features a dual-fan cooling solution, dual 8-pin power connectors, and I/O is assured by 3x DisplayPort and 1x HDMI. The Gaming M features slightly lower clocks than the Gaming or Gaming X series: 1130 MHz Base, 1375 MHz Game, and 1560 MHz Boost clocks is the quoted transistor ticking speed. The packaging still features the red stylized X employed on MSI's Gaming X series though, which may cause some confusion when it comes to shop around.

Sony Doubles Playstation 5 Orders Amid High Demand

According to the Bloomberg report, Sony has reportedly doubled Playstation 5 orders and plans to ship 10 million units this fiscal year. Originally, Sony wanted to ship 5-6 million units between November of this year and March 31st of 2021. However, Sony is seeing a very high demand for its next-generation console and it had to double the production orders. Being manufactured in Kisarazu, Japan, the company can assemble two Playstation 4 consoles every minute, which is pretty impressive and gives hope that Sony can satisfy the demand for the new console. When the manufacturing costs of the console are broken down into parts, memory is making for more than half of it. The super-fast PCIe 4.0 SSD and GDDR6 memory cost about $250 combined. Reports are suggesting that the entire console costs an amazing $450 to manufacture.

Sapphire Intros Radeon RX 5600 XT Pulse BE: Shorter and Smaller than the Original

Sapphire introduced a price-optimized variant of its Radeon RX 5600 XT Pulse, with the new RX 5600 XT Pulse BE (model: 11296-05-20G). This card is visibly smaller than the original RX 5600 XT Pulse that is largely based on the board design of the RX 5700 series Pulse cards. The newer card is 23.05 cm long and 12.25 cm tall, compared to the original Pulse, that's 25.4 cm long and 13.5 cm tall. The new card is also slightly thinner, at exactly 4 cm (slightly less than 2 slots thick), while the original Pulse is 4.65 cm thick (slightly more than 2 slots thick).

There are a handful areas of cost-cutting by Sapphire. To begin with, while the diameter of the two fans of the Dual-X cooling solution is unchanged at 100 mm, the underlying heatsink is visibly slimmer, and of a different design than that used in the original Pulse card. Secondly, the PCB is shorter in length than the cooler itself, and is of a completely different design than the original Pulse. Thirdly, the card lacks dual-BIOS. Lastly, the fans of the card lack the Quick-Connect feature that lets you pop them out to clean the heatsink underneath. Luckily, the new Pulse BE card sticks to AMD's revised OC specs for the RX 5600 XT out of the box, so you don't have to bother with BIOS updates. It ticks at 1560 MHz game clocks, up to 1620 MHz boost clocks, and 14 Gbps (GDDR6-effective) memory. The company didn't reveal pricing, although we expect this card to be priced very close to the USD $279 baseline for the RX 5600 XT.

GALAX Designs a GeForce GTX 1650 "Ultra" with TU106 Silicon

NVIDIA board partners carving out GeForce RTX 20-series and GTX 16-series SKUs from ASICs they weren't originally based on, is becoming more common, but GALAX has taken things a step further. The company just launched a GeForce GTX 1650 (GDDR6) graphics card based on the "TU106" silicon (ASIC code: TU106-125-A1). The company carved a GTX 1650 out of this chip by disabling all of its RT cores, all its tensor cores, and a whopping 61% of its CUDA cores, along with proportionate reductions in TMU- and ROP counts. The memory bus width has been halved from 256-bit down to 128-bit.

The card, however, is only listed by the Chinese regional arm of GALAX. The card's marketing name is "GALAX GeForce GTX 1650 Ultra," with "Ultra" being a GALAX brand extension, and not an NVIDIA SKU (i.e. the GPU isn't called "GTX 1650 Ultra"). The GPU clock speeds for this card is identical to those of the original GTX 1650 that's based on TU117 - 1410 MHz base, 1590 MHz GPU Boost, and 12 Gbps (GDDR6-effective) memory.

Manli Releases GeForce GTX 1650 Low Profile

The Manli GeForce GTX 1650 DDR6 Low Profile is powered by NVIDIA's new GDDR6 memory, hence the "DDR6" moniker. The key upgrades include 12 Gbps memory speed and 192 GB/sec memory bandwidth, both improvements over the former DDR5. Clock speed is at 1410 MHz and can be boosted to 1590 MHz. This results in a performance boost of 6.31% over the DDR5. The performance benchmarks of the DDR6 slots it comfortably between the previous DDR5 and the
GeForce GTX 1650 Super. The sleeker design makes it more suitable for certain applications.
