Ampere Taped Out? (Ampere thread)
#11
That sounds promising from AMD. Let's hope they can deliver on their goals. I hope their new architecture is good. I might pick up a Playstation 5 if it's any good.

It's the same architecture as Navi - but updated to RDNA2.

Are you giving up on PC gaming for a console?

No, and I don't think I'll do it. I'd do better by putting a bit of money into my PC. It might be a couple more generations before I have a good affordable option that will give me a nice boost.

I guess you are then talking about a RTX 3080 or a 3080 Ti. Considering that a GTX 1080 Ti = RTX 2070 Super, a RTX 3060 will probably also beat your 1080 Ti. Ampere should provide a 50% increase over Turing overall.

I have no idea about pricing. This current pandemic brings significant uncertainty into making projections - especially with the way the US administration is mishandling just about everything.

I’m pretty stoked about this.

I can’t see AMD competing anywhere near the high end with specs like that. 54 billion transistors blows my mind.

Nvidia's big reveal is in 2 hours. I'll be benchmarking while it happens (just in case).

Here is the time in your zone

It has just gone midnight here, so I'll watch it - I'm a bit of a night owl, not usually in bed before 3am most days.

Speaking of videos about GPU's here is a couple of recent rip-snorters and they address value for money and nvidia GPU's quite nicely:

Wow .. you are a night owl ... I get by on about 5-6 hours sleep and I try to take a nap.

I totally get it about Turing and its limited performance increase over Pascal. I figured it out two years ago when wrote about how Nvidia "sacrificed" raster performance to introduce ray tracing. I am unsure what else they could have done about ray tracing - other than to ignore it or make it a checkbox feature.

Well, I don't do mornings at the Access Centre unless I absolutely have to (I don't do mornings in general, actually  Teethy  ), but we have other staff, our training officer specifcally who is very much a morning person, so it works out nicely.
