Nvidia is quietly preparing the launch of its new generation of GPUs RTX panel with the Ampere architecture for the professional sector, GPUs that would be launched in October. It has now been discovered that the top-of-the-line model will use GA102 silicon to the full, although luckily for us that translates to just 10752 CUDA Colors, which now seems very little thanks to the existence of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 have 10496 CUDA Colors, which is the top-of-the-range GPU for the gaming segment.
In this way, the top-of-the-range Quadro RTX barely has 256 CUDA Extra core, although the biggest difference is that it doubles the amount of memory it offers, although slower, that is, 48 GB GDDR6 (vs GDDR6X) at a speed of 16 GHz (vs 19.5 GHz). Due to the use of a memory interface of 384 bits, this GPU achieves a bandwidth of 768 GB/s, which translates to 8GB / s more than the GeForce RTX 3080 and 168 GB / s less than the GeForce RTX 3090.
The Nvidia Quadro RTX 8000, the top-of-the-line professional GPU with the Turing architecture, went on sale at a price of around 7.000 euros, so we will have to wait and see if this range of GPUs will also see its price drastically reduced.
