There is official confirmation: The next GeForce generation will be based on Ampere cores

The new powerful cores she unveiled Today will also form the basis of the company's gaming cards - but expect a slightly different hardware configuration

We already know the name Ampere many months ago as the next generation of the graphics processing cores of the company - though throughout this period, we heard clues about additional code names for the future architectures, so we were not entirely sure where the Starring and Where Look Like Another Family - After all, in the current product generation of the American chip developer, we first saw a division between the home video card market and the professional market with a pair of different architectures in their different capacities in oil.

Now, a comment from Jen-san Huang should eliminate at least some of the question marks in question: CEO Confirmed that the company is re-using unified architecture in the current generation, with Ampere cores also being used for the generation of Next (and as a result, Quadro and Of the next generation, of course) - although in a different material configuration than the one we are currently meeting for the HPC market.

Watch for Everywhere later in the year - although it is not yet clear to us how it will work

The addition of tensor processing units to the GA100 core, similar to those found across all Turing generation cores, promotes the possibility of using single architecture for both HPC and gaming - but this is still the case during a simple process that will probably produce two separate schools of cores GAs that fit into the various categories: It is reasonable to estimate that the large amount of double-point floating point (FP64) processing units that exist in the GA100 core are not visible in the Gaming Amps cores, as this is a rarely used element outside the HPC, and we believe (and hope) that there will be a transition from memory usage Built on a unified silicone substrate along with the core itself for memories Cheaper and more popular.

Delivers the goods - both in announcements and teasers for the rest of the journey

We also did not receive any information or reference to the hardware capabilities of GA100 horn acceleration (apparently none of these, and rightly so), while we certainly expect to see the same RT cores present in future gaming products, similar to how all the family cards were present. To this day.

Not all the question marks have disappeared, then - but now we can finally imagine what the characteristics of the generation will be Up next: a possible up to 40 percent increase in paper performance (assuming no models with more advanced capabilities than the formidable A100 accelerator are seen), hundreds of percent improvement in tensor processing that will lead to new capabilities in DLSS technology, improved dynamic memory and bandwidth, and option Actual power consumption is increased compared to the current rolling.

A single SM cluster within the GA100 core presents a lot of elements that may be unnecessary in the Gaming Graphic Core - so how Will you fit in without losing Ampere's overall identity? Let's hope to find out soon
