It’s probably not information to inform you that the following technology of graphics playing cards goes to be power-hungry. Truth be informed, we haven’t any official info on that time in any way, neither from AMD nor NVIDIA. The writing is on the wall, although; moreover the fixed leaks implying that the following GPU releases from groups each crimson and green can be monstrous, power-thirsty beasts, there’s additionally the creation of that 12VHPWR connector.
Well, yesterday, kopite7kimi revised his earlier evaluation of the proposed GeForce RTX 4080’s energy calls for, stating that the “possible RTX 4080, PG139-SKU360, has a 420W TGP”. He additionally famous that this product can be based mostly on an AD103 processor. The solely “103”-series chip that NVIDIA has ever created is the rarely-seen AD103 that’s identified for use in some laptop computer GeForce RTX 3080 Ti fashions, in order that’s fairly fascinating, too.
Keep in thoughts that these playing cards are as soon as once more going to be utilizing chips fabricated at TSMC, and on a smaller course of than the Ampere GPUs. The GeForce 3000 sequence is fabricated on Samsung’s 8N course of, which is regarded as barely inferior to TSMC’s N7. The Ada Lovelace household goes to be fabricated on TSMC’s N5, and but the facility budgets are nonetheless going up, tier-for-tier.
So saying, we count on some critically stupendous efficiency out of NVIDIA’s new GPUs once they arrive. If earlier leaks are correct, that ought to occur beginning in August.
