not cost effective to do clamshell 3080's, they'll wait till 2GB modules are in production next year.
They'll bring out a 3080 Super and a 3070 Super with more VRAM next year for the refresh no doubt.
Guess there's no need when the 40 series on TSMC's 7nm EUV is right around the corner early next year. They'll likely lose the performance crown this year though.
Until its not and they back peddle on that rumor as well.
Honestly, someone needs to create a rumor tracker. Ampere had so many false and misleading crap - mostly out of Moores Law is Dead, but others as well. It needs to be tracked and companies that have over a 50% rating - or do things like this, where they back peddle - they need to be called out and banned from discussion.
It's really dumb that they get advertising $ by just shoving random bullshit into the world, where as people like Hilbert, trying to be objective, doing excellent reviews are basically forced to repeat their bullshit in order to compete for clicks.
You only assume it's BS without considering that maybe the bean counters at Nvidia don't know what they're doing either.
In this case it would make sense though, if they do an 3080 super / 4080 on 7nm next year with 20gb vram. But everyone buying a 3080 or 3090 now is gonna feel butt facked.
actually it never made any sense. to me at least. releasing new lineup 3 months after the original.
1. cos they never did it. and be4 someone says RTX Super - Super cards came ten (10) months after the RTX launch, which is only a tad faster than the usual 12 months half-cycle cadence.
2. because this would be purely anti-Navi move, allegedly, and Nvidia is first and foremost competing against itself by trying to persuade GTX/RTX owners to upgrade.
3. sneaky release of double RAM cards after Jensen has just explained that 10 GB is aight for the time being, would cause a shtstorm and then some
I wrote next year, not 3 months - dunno where you got that from...
Apart from Moore's Law saying that the 3000 series would have 4x ray tracing performance I didn't hear much else from him. He has even admitted he was wrong about that multiple times, are we also forgetting the Coreteks "co-processor" rumour that had Nvidia using a separate die on the back of the card for ray tracing? He also admitted he wrong too by the way.
If anyone is to blame for false or misleading advertising its Nvidia themselves.
ya ok... I was going on about that rumor of Nvidia releasing double VRAM 3080/70 in order to spoil RDNA2 launch.
Dude I quoted you in the other thread with like 9 things he said were wrong and it was all from just one his videos. If I went through the rest I can probably double the number. He's just guessing for subs. Coreteks same crap. Videocardz just aggregates all these people's trash. But everyone handwaves it away because out of the 35 things they got wrong, they guess one right and apologize for the others.
A lot of people are waiting for all of Nvidia and AMD (both CPU and GPU) dust to settle before, I know I am. I'm not even going to start looking at prices until January.
Probably 40 series in March, but announced after New Year.
......but if we go further back in time, we can say that the GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 ($299) was released 3 month after GTX 260 ($449).
well played. that's a nice find
I guess anything is possible, if AMD will be as strong as it had been with $299 HD4870.
The only reason i hope this isn't true is to have a clear and easy showcase as to why 10GB is enough for the next 3-4 years. Other then that, i hope this is true, as people will be needlessly spending more money on something that won't benefit them.
This is possible as coronavirus does affect production, especially for high tech devices that needs inspection. The supply chain is affected at the moment so they probably canceled due to "high demand" = read we cannot get enough products made due to bad forecasting or affected manufacturing.
Better for them to sellout of the existing variations and come back with updated Super and Ti models when they actually have chips to sell.
In either case, AMD may cleanup Q4 earnings and revenue IF they were able to build up supply. This can be a HUGE win for AMD. Let's hope AMD keeps prices reasonable to consumers!!!
Looks at AMD and Nvidia stock portfolio...
I agree. But higher vram cards can serve Nvidia for marketing purposes at least. AMD is going to milk their 16gb cards to the hilt vs Nvidias 8-10gb cards and will falsely trot out "usage" (allocation) charts of how more is better, not necessarily by performance, just by vram allocation which the masses will mindlessly gobble up.
Monroe law was correct on most things that's the problem
