New report claims Nvidia may leave AMD in the dust

New report claims Nvidia may leave AMD in the dust

According to the latest rumours, Nvidia may beat AMD by launching the next generation RTX 40 series GPUs first. That’s right, GPU plural, because after all, there could be more than one graphics card model available this year.

AMD is also gearing up to release the new RDNA 3 graphics cards, but it seems like with Nvidia, we may not see the full lineup in 2023.

It’s no secret that the GPU field is slowly heating up, and today’s rumors once again give Nvidia an edge over AMD, although both Team Green and Team Red are preparing exciting new releases for this fall. In his latest video, Moore’s Law is Dead talked about what we can expect from the two key players in the graphics card market. As always, Moore’s Law is Dead refers to industry insiders while reporting on what goes on behind the scenes.

Let’s start with Nvidia. Previous reports told us that Nvidia may only be ready to release a single graphics card this year, the high-end (and presumably expensive) RTX 4090. While this would be difficult for customers, it makes sense given that GPU prices are falling rapidly. and retailers have plenty of graphics cards lying around that still need to be sold eventually. However, Moore’s Law is Dead states that both issues have now been addressed by Nvidia.

In line with the rumors he’s been talking about, Moore’s Law is Dead also speculates that Nvidia’s next-gen GPUs may launch in October. Supposedly, Nvidia has already started shipping embargo details this week, mentioning an October release without committing to a final date. The YouTuber says it’s possible more than one RTX 40-series model will launch at the same time, so we may not have to wait until 2023 to see more of the lineup.

One source claims that Nvidia has done some “great things” to address the current oversupply problem that Nvidia’s add-on board (AIB) partners are experiencing. Supposedly, both AMD and Nvidia are also trying to convince their board partners to buy the next-gen graphics cards early instead of waiting for the current generation to ship.

The YouTuber also talked about the rumored performance of Nvidia’s next-gen cards, and it all sounds pretty promising, especially since it lines up with previous leaks, giving it more credence. Nvidia is reportedly concentrating on delivering the best possible performance from the top three GPUs in the “Ada Lovelace” lineup: RTX 4090, RTX 4080, and RTX 4070. The latter was previously compared to current-gen flagship RTX. 3090 Ti in performance, and now, Moore’s law is dead echoes that prediction. If this turns out to be true, the RTX 4070 will probably be one of the best graphics cards in terms of performance per dollar.

I’m not a charlatan, but I have some updates to make. I hope you don’t mind.
a possible RTX 4080,
256bit 16G 21Gbps GDDR6X
total power ~420W
TSE ~15000
I have now completed the latest update for 4090, 4080 and 4070.

We also have some news about the RTX 4080, this time from Twitter leaker Kopite7kimi. The tipster predicted the specs of the card, which is supposed to use a stripped down AD103-300 GPU, with the full version likely to be slotted into the RTX 4080 Ti. Unfortunately, it looks like the specs may be worse than we initially thought, but the performance still sounds fantastic.

The rumored RTX 4080 is supposed to come with 9,728 cores instead of the 10,240 cores that previous leaks suggested we could get. Kopite7kimi also expects the GPU to come with 48MB of L2 cache and 16GB of GDDR6X memory, as well as 21Gbps speeds and a 256-bit memory bus. Perhaps the juiciest piece of information is that Kopite7kimi predicts a TimeSpy benchmark score of around 15,000 for this GPU, which would make it up to 35% faster than the RTX 3090 Ti.

Moving on to AMD, it seems that while Team Red could beat Intel to launch the next generation processors, it won’t be in time to beat Nvidia as well. Moore’s Law is Dead expects AMD to release RDNA 3 graphics cards in November at the earliest. Furthermore, it appears that AMD is also taking a staggered release approach in the same way that Nvidia appears to be doing. While we’ll be getting high-end RDNA 3 graphics cards this year, like the Radeon RX 7900 XT, we may not see mid- to entry-level offerings until 2023.

These reports certainly bode well for Nvidia, but even if AMD is a little late to the party, we will certainly see some competition between the two giants, which can only mean good things for those looking to buy a new GPU.
