Exclusive: NVIDIA Ampere Graphics Cards Partial Specs And Tentative Launch Schedule

Published

on

NVIDIA is planning to launch the next generation of its GPUs in September and one of our sources just gave us an overview of the Ampere graphics card lineup. Interestingly, they mentioned that NVIDIA has *not* confirmed the naming schemes (we are currently referring to these cards as the RTX 3000 series) of the cards yet but has started to reveal details about the boards, SKUs, and the tentative launch schedule. Oh and remember the rumors we were hearing about a 20 GB card in the Ampere lineup? Turns out they were right.

NVIDIA Ampere GPUs: 24GB, 10GB and 8GB cards launching in September with more to follow, six boards planned as of right now

According to our sources, NVIDIA is planning to launch 3 boards in September with 1 board following in October and 2 boards planned whose launch date has not yet been decided. Since we do not know the confirmed naming schemes yet, I will refer to these boards according to their board numbers and the RTX 2000 series card they are intended to replace.

The crown jewel of NVIDIA’s lineup is the PG132-10 board with 24GB of vRAM. It is going to be replacing the RTX 2080 Ti and is currently scheduled to launch in the second half of September.We then have the PG132-20 and PG132-30 boards, both of which are replacing the RTX 2080 SUPER graphics card and will have 20GB and 10GB worth of vRAM respectively. The PG132-20 board is going to be launching in the first half of October while the PG132-30 board is going to be launching in mid-September. It is worth adding here that these three parts are likely the SKU10, 20 and 30 we have been hearing about and the SKU20 is going to be targetted dead center at AMD’s Big Navi offering (and hence the staggered launch schedule). Since AMD‘s Big Navi will *probably* have 16GB worth of vRAM, it also explains why NVIDIA wants to go with 20GB.The PG142-0 and PG142-10 are both going to be replacing the RTX 2070 SUPER and will feature 16GB and 8GB worth of vRAM respectively. While the PG142-10 has a known launch schedule in the second half of September, the PG142-0 board has no confirmed launch date yet.Finally, we have the PG190-10 board which is going to be replacing the RTX 2060 SUPER graphics card and will have 8GB of vRAM as well. The launch schedule for this board has not been decided yet either.

September is shaping up to be an amazing month of tech enthusiasts with NVIDIA rolling out a brand new architecture (and series of graphics cards) and AMD finally pushing out Big Navi in the following few weeks as well. The Ampere series has had
