    In an article on Reuters, they talk about the king craze and how well that benefits NVIDIA with prices shooting through the roof. More interesting is that the article mentioned Nvidia would release a...

    I've heard that Ampere is not the name from good sources.

    Ampere name is fake news.Ampere name is taken by an indian maker named Ampere and recently we have "Ampere, a new chip company run by former Intel president Renee James, came out of stealth today with a brand-new highly efficient Arm-based server chip targeted at hyperscale data centers."

    GT wouldn't have been too far-fetched had it been called "touring".

    We already knew that new products were coming. The main thing that's relevant to me and most of Guru3d is that it's a gaming product.

    hah ok, to be honest that Ampere was soo random and wrong to begin with.

    How is it any different than Tesla/Fermi/Maxwell/Pascal/Volta? They are all named after scientists. Turing too...

    Not as name of the person, but as gpu name. I think I saw Turing name mentioned once back in 2016-2017, but never Ampere.


    Edit:

    But the name Turing was also a bit suspicious back then, because I thought it would be only Volta.

    So I assume this Turing will continue to use Volta's new improvements, or maybe even newer?
    Well I hope it does and its not just a Pascal refresh, like by fermi and GF100 vs GF110

    Idk, sounds like Nvidia is splitting it's architecture - one for gaming one for compute.

    Notice how "two" is missing from three four five.

    I always thought that Ampere was just some fan made bull (I remember reading that someone just played with the idea).

    Why should they give you a wholly new arch? Refresh sounds more profitable and legit. They have no competition at this point. They are on a whole gen in front of red team, if not even more.

    Ampere and Watt could be seen as rather unfortunate GPU names. It's like a car named "Crash" or a boat named "Drown."

    Performance is the competition, if a new GPU can mine more efficiently and the costings work out then they will develop, manufacture and sell irrespective of what AMD have on the shelves.

    Yup, they only need to deliver incremental improvements and refinements from here on (maybe their own Tick-Tock?). No need to spend so much on R&D when they're the only game in town - just create incremental products and gamers will keep buying them (and reserve the next-gen GPUs for their super rich customers as the new Super Titans ;)).

    NV started to be one step ahead around Kepler, so its nothing new now. Pc shops are just very lucky to be able to get away with such high prices 800-1300€ for a 1080ti because of this bs mining craze, I see the same by Vega 56/64, 700-1500€ lol'd.. That said new gpu by release will be like it always was here 650-750€.


    AMD will release Vega20 this year,
    https://videocardz.com/specials/roadmaps
    and Vega refresh should be just enough to rival full GP102, and that OC'ed can almost reach Volta perf. So its kind of logical NV will make something faster then that.

    Deffo, look how AMD caught Intel napping. Necessity is the mother of invention.

    Techpowerup mentioned it is Volta arch, but like Denial said different sku

    I don't know, wouldn't it make more sense for Turing (T100) to be the Volta successor, set for 2019 launch in 7nm?

    And gamers "just" get a Geforce Volta this year, and a Geforce Turing in 2020.
