Rumour | GTC 2020 will not disappoint, with Ampere GPUs set to launch at upcoming NVIDIA conference
There has been plenty of talk about the Ampere architecture of late, as NVIDIA looks to bring Turing architecture and RTX 20 series successors to market. In the last few weeks we have details about seen a possible GA103 RTX 3080 leak, along with news that NVIDIA may have brought forward the release of consumer Ampere GPUs.
Apparently due to launch at GTC 2020 next month, the next-generation GPUs would take on AMD's upcoming "Big Navi" cards. Now, NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang has offered an insight into what to expect from the conference. According to Wccftech, Huang issued the following statement at the company's most recent quarterly earnings call:
We had an excellent quarter with strong demand for NVIDIA RTX graphics and NVIDIA AI platforms and record data center revenue. NVIDIA RTX is reinventing computer graphics and the market's response is excellent, driving a powerful upgrade cycle in both gaming and professional graphics, while opening whole new opportunities for us to serve the huge community of independent creative workers and social content creators and new markets in rendering and cloud gaming.
..........We'll be talking a lot more about these key trends and much more at next month's GTC Conference in San Jose. Come join me. You won't be disappointed. Thanks everyone.
Now, the above does not guarantee that NVIDIA will release Ampere GPUs at next month's conference. However, we would not be surprised to see the company showcase at least some concrete details about its upcoming architecture at GTC 2020. Either way, the next few months are shaping up nicely for gamers.
