Refresh Ampere: Nvidia goes backwards?

Refresh Ampere: Nvidia goes backwards?

A little while ago we mentioned Nvidia’s willingness to refresh its Ampere range just a few weeks after its release. This information, which mentioned the arrival of a RTX 3080 20Gb and a RTX 3070 Ti 16Gb, had been passed on to us by several contacts within Nvidia’s partner brands. A few hours ago, Videocardz published an article, following discussions with its own sources of information, which would question this refresh. According to him, even if Nvidia was very advanced in the process of creating these GPUs for the refresh, the chameleon would have decided to cancel everything a few days ago.

Of course, we are still for the moment currently on rumors even if our colleague seems rather serene about the reliability of his sources. How can we analyse the second turnaround in such a short time if this information is confirmed? Would Nvidia have become more serene in the face of competition from RDNA 2 cards? Could the brand’s contractual commitments with its new Samsung foundryman also hinder the production of new references with another partner such as TSMC? The low availability of the GDDR6X chips is also put forward as a reason as to why Nvidia would seek to improve its availability in a market where getting the new RTXs is still a challenge. There are many questions that remain unresolved at this time and are not yet confirmed. The launch of the RTX 3070 and then the 3060Ti in the coming days of November will undoubtedly be the occasion to have some confirmations.
