Possible specs for the Nvidia RTX 3000 series leaked

by January 20, 2020 0 comments

The first murmurs regarding the next generation of Nvidia GPUs, the RTX 3000 series started in October. Since then there have been a lot of new developments. Firstly, Nvidia dropped the price on their RTX 2060 to $299 to compete with AMD’s recently announced Radeon 5600XT, which they claim will be the “ultimate 1080p” card. Just a couple of days ago, AMD confirmed that their “Nvidia killer” Navi GPU will release this year itself, but other than that, most details are just speculations. 

The latest leak in the GPU department now comes from Nvidia. Some of the specifications regarding the RTX 3000 series cards have been leaked. The cards in question seem to be the RTX 3080 and RTX 3070 (if that is what they will be called at the time of their release). The source is MyDrivers, which has reported two new GPUs with core codes GA103 and GA104 with Ampere architecture.  

The GA103 is expected to be the core code for RTX 3080 and is said to come in a 10GB variant and a whopping 20GB variant. It will have a 320-bit memory bus with 60 Streaming Multiprocessors. 

GA104 is believed to be the core code of RTX 3070, which is said to have an 8GB variant and a 16GB variant. It will have a 256-bit memory bus and 48 Streaming Multiprocessors.  

There is no official word on release dates as of yet, but rumours are that Nvidia will reveal the RTX 3000 series somewhere in March and might release them at Computex 2020, which will take place in June. Seeing the threat that AMD is now becoming, the RTX 3000 series might be priced more competitively, as we can see from the price drop of RTX 2060. It is a good time to be a PC gamer.
