At the Nvidia GTC2020 online conference in May this year, CEO Jensen Huang announced the Abe architecture built with a 7nm process, which will be the only core of Nvidia’s new generation of graphics cards. Nvidia said that Abe architecture brings the largest in the history of 8th generation graphics cards performance improvement.
Nvidia previously announced that it will hold a new product launch conference on September 1, when it will release the GeForce RTX 30 series graphics cards with Abe architecture. It is currently reported that the price of the GeForce RTX 3090 is set at $1,399, and the memory size is more than twice the size of the previous flagship product, the GeForce RTX 2080Ti, up to 24GB.
The reliable whistleblower said that the GeForce RTX 3090 is priced at US$1,399, which is US$200 more expensive than the GeForce RTX 2080Ti (Founders Edition), so the GeForce RTX 3090 (Founders Edition) may be priced at US$1,499.
The price increase of GeForce RTX 3090 is naturally not without reason. It uses 24GB GDDR6X memory, which is more than half of the 11GB GDDR6X memory equipped with GeForce RTX 2080Ti. It has a 384-bit bus and can provide up to 1 TB/s bandwidth.
At the same time, the GeForce RTX 3090 also uses the GA102-300-A1 Ampere core, which can increase the performance by 40%-50% compared to the GeForce RTX 2080Ti. This core is composed of 5248 CUDA cores or 82 SM cores.
At present, we have received news that Nvidia will release at least three graphics cards GeForce RTX 3090 (or 3080 Ti), GeForce RTX 3080, and next-generation Titan graphics cards on September 1.
