NVIDIA Ready To Release VOLTA Powered GTX 2080
NVIDIA is readying the Volta powered GTX 2080 by April 2018. Rumours in the gaming circuit are rife and indicate that GP102 production is likely to be stalled. Therefore, GTX 1080 Ti and Titan X graphics cards will not be readily available for users. Thus, we can expect the launch of much awaited Volta powered GTX 2080 this year. There are some significant changes, like the new architecture will be 14nm (rather than 16) and GDDR6 memory.
As per the trusted sources, NVIDIA has implemented a new Pascal powered architecture which will be called Ampere, instead of Volta. Following an agreement with Samsung, NVIDIA is geared to make 14nm GPUs, which are likely to be integrated into the new Ampere cards. Users, on the other hand, are expecting Ampere cards to be faster than before to up to 30-50%.
Here are some of the expected specifications from NVIDIA’a Volta powered graphics cards.
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 2080 Ti – GA102/3384/384-bit/GDDR6
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 2080 – GA104/2560/256-bit/GDDR6
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 2070 – GA104/2048/256-bit/GDDR6
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 2060 Ti 6GB – GA106/1280/192-bit/GDDR
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 2060 6GB – GA106/1024/192-bit/GDDR5
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 2050 – GA107/768/128-bit/GDDR5
Reportedly, announcements of a new GPU is on the cards by NVIDIA. It will take place, most likely at the GTC (GPU Technology Conference) in March or April. Last year, NVIDIA head Jensen Huang showed concerns in producing graphics cards for consumers at the reasoning process. While Nvidia’s Volta powered architecture graphics cards are already available. Tesla V100 with professional level GPU to run artificial intelligence based application was out in 2017. While Titan V was released at the end of 2017, which was more consumer-centric in nature. It was specifically devised for high-value computing needs.
