NVIDIA Ampere may only be a few weeks away, and now someone has spotted a 7,936 CUDA core GPU on Geekbench. The card sports 32 GB of VRAM and a 1.1 GHz clock speed too, whetting fans appetites for what may be launched at GTC 2020 this month.

NVIDIA and its upcoming Ampere architecture have been in the news a lot recently, and not just because of the questions around GTC 2020. Following from our article yesterday about sightings of two possible Ampere GPUs, a third has been unearthed from the depths of Geekbench. Spotted by @W_At_Ar_U and brought to our attention by @_rogame, the GPU features a whopping 7,936 CUDA cores, with 124 per SM.

Additionally, Geekbench reports that the GPU running at 1.1 GHz, along with 32 GB of VRAM clocked at 1.2 GHz. @_rogame elaborates that this is HBM2 running on a 4,096-bit bus. Apparently, the GPU has 32 MB of L3 cache onboard and two Async engines. @_rogame has also uncovered that the GPU is not a multi GPU board, though.

While the system in which the Ampere card was benchmarked achieved a CUDA score of 222,377, we would not recommend getting your hopes up yet for what NVIDIA is bringing to market for consumers later this year. According to @_rogame, the GPU is a data centre card that will run into thousands of dollars. Hence, we are probably looking at an NVIDIA Quadro card. The 32 GB of VRAM potentially points to it being a Quadro GV100 successor, but that is speculative on our part.
