WCCF Tech collected the latest rumors and speculation about NVIDIA's GeForce "Ampere" GPUs. The meat is that according to the site, Ampere will be made on a 10nm process (8LPP) from Samsung. The launch of the lineup is scheduled for Q4 2020, which would be later than previously expected, and there will be ray tracing support for the entire series. It's said that the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti will be 40 percent faster than the RTX 2080 Ti. It's also said that the bulk of performance improvement will be ray tracing-focused, and not rasterization. As always, take this information with a grain of salt.
Before we get into the details of these specific GPUs, it is mentioned that all GPUs will be made on the Samsung 10nm (8LPP) process node. SLI through a next-generation NVLINK interconnect will be available but only on the top-tier GA102 based graphics cards. Currently, this limitation only falls below the TU104 based GPUs but it looks like NVIDIA would impose further limitations with next-gen Ampere parts. NVIDIA would also enable RTX (real-time ray-tracing) across all GPUs, even the lower-end GA107 parts which means that there are some significant architectural enhancements made to the RT design on Ampere GPUs, allowing for more real-time raytracing performance on the new cards.
