RTX 40 : Ada Lovelace in 5 nm…Or Not.

RTX 40 : Ada Lovelace in 5 nm…Or Not.

For several months now, rumors have been converging on the Ada Lovelace architecture to take over from Ampere and the RTX 30. In the last few hours some new details have come out indicating that the Ada Lovelace GPUs will be based on TSMC’s 5nm process. Unlike AMD’s RDNA 3 series, the GPUs will remain with a monolithic design and although TSMC’s 5nm is mentioned, a lot of questions remain at this stage, including which etching process Nvidia will choose.

Ada Lovelace

Many speculations are underway concerning RDNA3 and it seems that we have the same scenario as with RDNA2, namely an AMD on top and a Nvidia that did not see it coming. If with the RX 6000, Nvidia felt the wind of the ball this time, let’s be honest, nothing happened however to defrizz the guys of the Chameleon.

Nvidia ready to sacrifice a generation?

But then again, rumors are coming back that Ada Lovelace is falling behind RDNA 3 in terms of performance, and with an FSR up to snuff, the reds would be better armed this time around. Under these conditions ( still very very conditional ) if Ada Lovelace proves unable to match or exceed the performance of AMD’s RDNA 3 GPUs, then NVIDIA could decide to nip the entire Ada Lovelace line in the bud and move straight to Hopper. Hopper is the GPU architecture that Nvidia seemed to be targeting for data centers. It is the first green architecture to use MCM technology. Surely this change would be very surprising and we have to keep in mind that we are in a huge fool’s game right now. The new Nvidia generation should indeed not arrive with, at best, the end of the year 2022. A refresh of the RTX 30 range seems to be planned but again, given the availability and price issues, such an option would be, from our point of view, quite tricky for Nvidia. For the moment, rumors are multiplying but we keep all our confidence in our specialist of the subject that you can see here in full technical study…
