NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 Collection graphics playing cards that includes the Ada Lovelace GPU structure are anticipated to ship the identical generational efficiency soar that we noticed shifting from the 9-series Maxwell GPUs to 10-series Pascal GPUs. The rumor comes from Ulysses, who has been speaking about NVIDIA’s next-gen elements for some time now.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 GPUs With Ada Lovelace Structure Anticipated To Ship Similar Generational Bounce As We Noticed With Maxwell To Pascal
The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 10 collection graphics playing cards primarily based on the Pascal GPU structure had been an enormous efficiency soar in comparison with its Maxwell-based GeForce 9 collection precessors. The 16nm chips delivered a serious enchancment to efficiency, effectivity, and general worth, additionally marking one of many greatest leaps in ‘Ti’ graphics efficiency. The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti continues to be thought to be the most effective ‘Ti’ graphics card ever made, a efficiency soar that NVIDIA has been unable to match with its Turing and Ampere flagships.

Now the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 collection is anticipated to ship the identical generational efficiency soar over the GeForce RTX 30 collection. Primarily based on the Ada Lovelace GPU structure, the GeForce 40 collection graphics playing cards are anticipated to make the most of TSMC’s 5nm course of node and whereas they are going to be very power-hungry, their effectivity numbers will go up tremendously due to the large efficiency soar.
There are additionally another particulars talked about relating to clock speeds and launch timeframe. We all know that the GeForce RTX 40 collection is a great distance from now and the rumor is that we cannot anticipate these playing cards to launch till late This fall 2022. That is additionally because of the truth that NVIDIA will reportedly offer an intermediate SUPER refresh of its GeForce RTX 30 collection lineup in 2022. So if that lineup was to return earlier than RTX 40 collection, then we are able to anticipate the launch to slide additional in Q1 2023. Which means that AMD would possibly simply have its RDNA 3 lineup out by the point NVIDIA launches its new GPU household.

When it comes to clock speeds, the Ada Lovelace-powered NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 Collection GPUs are mentioned to supply clock speeds between 2.2 to 2.5 GHz (enhance). It is a good enchancment to 1.7-1.9 GHz clocks that the Ampere structure churns out presently on common. The Pascal structure additionally clocked impressively and was the primary GPU structure to breach the two.0 GHz clock velocity restrict nevertheless, it’s AMD who has taken the clock velocity throne with its RDNA 2 GPU structure which might hit clocks past 2.5 GHz with ease.
Primarily based on these numbers, if the RTX 4090 or regardless of the AD102 GPU is featured inside options 18,432 CUDA cores, then we’re getting as much as 80 TFLOPs of FP32 compute efficiency at 2.2 GHz which is insane and over 2x the single-precision floating-point soar over RTX 3090. These numbers do align with the rumors that we are able to anticipate as much as a 2.5x efficiency soar with the Ada Lovelace-GPUs-based NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 graphics playing cards.
NVIDIA CUDA GPU (Generational Comparability) Preliminary:
|Course of||TSMC 12nm NFF||Samsung 8nm||5nm|
|Graphics Processing Clusters (GPC)||6||7||12|
|Texture Processing Clusters (TPC)||36||42||72|
|Streaming Multiprocessors (SM)||72||84||144|
|Flagship SKU||RTX 2080 Ti||RTX 3090||RTX 4090?|
|Launch||Mar. 2017||Sept. 19||2022 (TBC)
However the greatest query stays, will the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 Collection graphics playing cards with Ada Lovelace GPUs carry again the identical pricing as Pascal? Not solely was the GTX 1080 Ti the most effective card for its efficiency, but it surely additionally supplied the most effective worth of any ‘Ti’ graphics card which is why all of us cherished the Pascal household.
The $699 US pricing made the GTX 1080 Ti a tremendous worth however not solely that, however NVIDIA additionally dropped pricing of its normal lineup to $499 (GTX 1080) and $349 for the GTX 1070 which we undoubtedly ought to be going again to. Nonetheless, the rise in part & logistics prices could not carry again the identical stage of pricing once more.

NVIDIA and AMD have actually been shifting the worth bar up for his or her high-end playing cards for some time now and except there’s some actually heated GPU competitors between each with sufficient provide within the channels, we do not anticipate ‘Ti’ variants to fall again down the $1000 US pricing phase.
