Excitement is building for a arriving Nvidia Ampere graphics cards, and a hype might good go into overdrive with this latest leak.
A new news by China Times (spotted by Videcardz) has supposedely given us a hide demeanour during a specs for some of a new Nvidia Ampere cards, including a RTX 3080 Ti, RTX 3080, RTX 3070 and RTX 3060.
However, these specs are so startling that they’re formidable to believe, as they advise a Nvidia RTX 3080 Ti has 8192 GPU cores, 256 RT cores, 1024 Tensor Cores and a Boost Clock Speed of 1750MHz. These total are almost aloft than what prior rumours suggested, creation a new leaks indeterminate to contend a least.
While we’re not certain about a accurate specs, many rumours and leaks are during slightest correlating with a fact that Nvidia will demeanour to pull a ray tracing opening to new heights, that creates a lot of clarity given Nvidia’s investment in a RTX range.
Read on next for all we know about Nvidia’s rumoured next-gen graphics cards.

Nvidia Ampere recover date – When will Nvidia launch RTX 3080 and RTX 3070?
Nvidia Ampere graphics cards are approaching to strike stores in Sep 2020.
Tweaktown reports that it expects a Nvidia Ampere graphics cards to be strictly suggested in Aug and afterwards launch in a following month. This would meant Nvidia Ampere would approaching have a vital participation in a deferred Computex trade show.
With Digitimes stating that Nvidia is augmenting a orders for 7nm nodes from TSMC, it’s looking approaching Ampere graphics cards will launch in a matter of months.

Nvidia Ampere cost – How most will RTX 3080 and RTX 3070 cost?
There’s small word on cost right now, that is no warn deliberation Nvidia traditionally like to set a cost final notation to undercut a competition.
A Wccftech report claims that Nvidia is looking to make a RTX 3080 and RTX 3070 somewhat cheaper than their Turing counterparts in a bid to make ray tracing accelerated cards some-more appealing to a mass market.
With a RTX 2080 Ti graphics label now costing over £1000, that comes as no surprise.

Nvidia Ampere specs
The Nvidia Ampere GPUs are widely approaching to underline a 7nm architecture, that is already an ascent on a incomparable 12nm design found with Turing graphics cards.
Further specs sum are distant some-more capricious though. Wccftech suggests a Ampere GPUs will see some-more vRAM, aloft time speeds and softened energy efficiency.
Other sources, including MyDrivers and Twitter comment KittyCorgi, have been distant some-more specific with a specs, yet aren’t as convincing a source. If they are to be believed though, a Nvidia Ampere specs could be as follows (with comparisons):
Recent leaks have suggested a Nvidia Ampere specs are even softened than a ones shown above, nonetheless we’re not assured by those reports. It also goes to uncover how many opposing reports there are, so anything we hear before Nvidia’s central exhibit needs to be taken with a splash of salt.

Nvidia Ampere performance
Rumours advise a arriving RTX 3080 Ti will be 40% some-more absolute than a stream RTX 2080 Ti. Considering a latter is now a mot absolute consumer graphics label by a large margin, this news is impossibly considerable and could potentially see support rates strech new levels for 4K gaming.
Nvidia is also rumoured to be heightening a efforts on ray tracing, that creates a lot of clarity given both a PS5 and Xbox Series X will support a record and approaching boost a recognition and direct for a picturesque light-rendering feature.
Wccftech reports that, “Ampere’s ray tracing cores will be faster, some-more energy fit and Ampere GPUs will have some-more of them as compared to Turing.”
It stays to be seen either Ampere will indeed urge a ray tracing visuals, or simply raise a support rate opening when a record is activated. But with an augmenting series of arriving games confirming support for ray tracing, Nvidia already has a larger height for success than it did with a Turing GPUs.
Nvidia will approaching plead some-more visual-boosting facilities done probable around a Ampere architecture, including softened rasterization, yet we’ll have to wait until Aug for central details.
