    Nvidia Ampere GPU tipped to deliver 50pc performance gain

    And it will do so with half the power consumption, says Taiwan investment analyst firm.

    50% gain in 4k gaming performance I hope. Seeing that the latest 20x series already give more than enough frames at 1080p and 1440p, would really like to see the new architecture focus on gains at higher resolutions tbh.

    I bet the price would cost more than your average kidney would be worth

    50% performance increase equals 100% price increase.

    Re: Nvidia Ampere GPU tipped to deliver 50pc performance gain

    GPU performance has been pretty stagnant for years now and if I am being really cynical it seems like it's only because of the competition from AMD recently that has kicked things into a slightly higher gear finally. If AMD don't bring something good next year though then I imagine there will be little incentive for nVidia to drop prices even with these new GPUs - they will simply slot into an even higher price tier like the RTX series did when they launched.

    I don't want to sound too old but it would be nice if we got a 50% increase in performance at every price point with these new GPUs next year but that kind of progress/lack of price gouging is long gone.

    50% faster performance and 50% lower power consumption? This report is bullocks. Its probably going to be 30-35% performance increase at the same power consumption and similar prices.

    I hope its 50% performance improvement, I hope its at current prices, meaning we get RTX 2060 performance for $170-180, but I know that is not realistic and won't happen. That is just some kindergarten thinking.

    Re: Nvidia Ampere GPU tipped to deliver 50pc performance gain

    Based on "3080", my guess....

    40% performance increase (so it just edges out the 2080 Ti)
    30% efficiency increase (30% less power draw)
    $799 / £749 launch price (same as 2080, so they can argue it offers "incredible value")
    With availability in late April / early May

    Re: Nvidia Ampere GPU tipped to deliver 50pc performance gain

    Ray tracing currently gives a massive hit to performance, so I can easily see a 50% uplift there.

    Just the change from 12nm to a new 7nm variant will get you the halving in power consumption and would make the die about half the size. Add 50% transistors to get you the performance increase removes some of those gains, but they might have new architectural tricks to make up the difference.

    ofc if AMD don't have anything out at that performance level then Nvidia will just add 50% to the pricing to match the performance.

    My wife bought an old MX-5 for £1500. It needed some more spent for decent tyres and a roll bar in case things get really dramatic on track, but the overall spend is comparable to a decently VR capable PC and a good force feedback steering wheel. It is way better value for money than high end gaming if you are into driving.

    Re: Nvidia Ampere GPU tipped to deliver 50pc performance gain

    bet it's going to be 50% ray tracing performance ........... might just about nill out the 43% drop when you use ray tracing in gaming (and I say gaming very loosely as what are the 6... 8 games?).

    Give us another 1080ti perfomace jump and I'll be impressed, having said that when this comes out and the fan boys are selling old cards I might be able to aford a 1080ti

    i think it's both.. but in different ways.

    Launch a new range of 2080 beaters that use ALL the power available and over 50% improvement on something (my guess is RTX will be 50% better but not the frame rates without RTX)

    And the same spec card will be 50% lower power WHEN at desk top tick over.

    for 4K and beyond, we gotta wait for untill the PS5 and XBOX whatever number gets out with the next generation of games.

    I hope you are right - that would do it for me...I am itching to upgrade to a 2080ti given that my 2080 is limiting FPS at 1440p ultrawide resolutions, but can't justify the upgrade cost of £600 or so (after selling my 2080) for a 15% boost.

    40% or more..heck even 30%..that I could justify.

    We'll see!

    3x perf/watt? Naah.

    7nm isn't a magic bullet, if it was that good then the radeon7 would have been better - it was only ~20% better than V64 at the same power

    Re: Nvidia Ampere GPU tipped to deliver 50pc performance gain

    I could see a potential increase in the number of dedicated RT cores giving a bigger boost in Ray Tracing, but 50% across the board? That would have to be some impressive architecture and software improvements. Aside from the comparison to the V64 being ~20% faster from the node shrink, where is the other 30% coming from?
