Well basically it will be a Volta architecture with DDR6.

It also explains the 1070Ti, getting rid of stock. It could be that Volta was always going to be the Top Gun with HBM, and with all the cash Nvidia has, they had two plans for the rest of the range. Volta-lite if HBM went ok, and Ampere if they had to continue on GDDR.

I would say GDDR5X at the most, with the option of a GDDR6/X Ti 😉

GDDR5X for GTX2070 and GDDR6 for GTX2080. Performance wise as expected: GTX2070 = 1080Ti GTX2080 = 1080Ti + 20-25%

I suppose it depends more in what fab tech they are going to use. 14 or 12nm ? Too early for anything else i think. is there a 10nm node available, or is that just for mobile chips ? probably got the memory layout right though.

Upgrade will be a no brainier for me. As even with 98fps lock for 3440x1440, there quite a lot of games that 1080Ti can barely handle, not evening mentioning 4k.

If this is true, sucks for consumers but I guess that's good for AMD. If Nvidia's claims about Volta's performance improvements are true, it could very well be the beginning of affordable 4K@60FPS gaming GPUs (and by affordable I mean less than $300 for an AIB). But if we're getting this possible Ampere instead, I feel like most of that series is just going to be rebrands with small tweaks here and there. Regardless, hopefully AMD will make the most of this timeframe up until the Volta release.

Extrapolate what was happening the last years with Nvidia and you'll know what follows. Whatever it's called doesn't make that much of a difference. Occasional vDDR upgrades with +20-30% on the top cards, more or less the lineup. With the lower end spectrum cut down in some way in addition to just less cores like reduced interface bandwidth etc. Titan before any TI, but there will be one.

So WCCf is reporting that Heise has been told that the next gen Nvidia cards will be called "Ampere" and not "Volta". Could it be that Volta is HBM and they decided to create another gen with GDDR at the high end because HBM isnt ready for prime time yet ? Is it just a name change ? https://www.guru3d.com/news-story/next-gen-nvidia-could-be-called-ampere.html https://wccftech.com/nvidia-next-generation-ampere-gpu-rumor/ https://www.heise.de/newsticker/meldung/Nvidia-Milliarden-Umsatz-und-kraeftiger-Gewinnsprung-dank-Gaming-3887633.html

@Monchis (great, you saw my sarcasm mode was on..) pfft, it could be a 3rd gen maxwell refresh for all i care, as long as its using less power and 30% faster 😉

Isn't this simply the code name for the architecture coming after Volta? The Heise artikel seems to indicate that the next architecture to be announced is named Ampere, which would make sense in the naming scheme that NVIDIA uses: Names of Scientists who worked in the area of electricity. Since the roadmap that NVIDIA has shown for their future architectures hasn't been updated in a while (VOLTA is still the newest architecture on the roadmap slides) it's only natural that with the release of Volta the roadmap will be updated soon.

Seems to be a very strong batch of tea leaves...the original article https://www.heise.de/newsticker/meldung/Nvidia-Milliarden-Umsatz-und-kraeftiger-Gewinnsprung-dank-Gaming-3887633.html consists of a rumor of a GPU uarch called Ampere'. "End of the third quarter, Nvidia has introduced the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti , which is positioned between the already available gaming graphics cards GeForce GTX 1070 and GeForce GTX 1080th The GTX 1000 graphics cards are all based on GPUs Pascal series. Information on upcoming GPU generation, which will be released under the name "amp", there should be the GPU Technology Conference 2018th ( [EMAIL='mfi@ct.de']Mfi[/EMAIL] )" (Google translation) That is it. Nothing about replacing Volta. All those claims are additional speculation piled on the original rumor.

Blaise Pascal, Alessandro Volta, and André-Marie Ampère were born in this order so fits pretty well for naming schemes. My guess is this is non news and amp/Ampère is the next gen after Volta.

y'know i said this two months ago and got massively flamed. nvidia is in love with A.I., cars, and deep learning - all of which volta delivers in spades - just not at a profitable price point for gaming as the yields from chip fab are entirely too low for mass market. AND there are entirely too many companies here (silicon valley) doing A.I., cars, and deep learning for nvidia to ignore - especially as they pay many multiples of the price of gaming gpu's. just google (alphabet) alone buys tens of millions of dollars worth of gpu's from nvidia. and that barely scratches the surface of this new market. so what i'm saying is nvidia doesn't need to do a damn thing about making volta for the mass market - they are raking in the cash as the last quarterly report shows. while making a new series with just what gamers need and nothing more makes entirely too much sense. so gamers - nvidia doesn't need you anymore...but they still want you.
