PC gamers will have to wait a bit longer to hear the juiciest news from NVIDIA. NVIDIA announced that it is going to hold off on sharing its GTC news for now. NVIDIA doesn’t state what it’s not going to announce, which makes sense, but many believe that the company was going to unveil the Ampere GPU architecture at the event.
Tweaktown reports that “NVIDIA was ramping up to reveal its next-gen Ampere GPU architecture at its GPU Technology Conference (GTC) in a few days time.” NVIDIA states that it will still stream other content at GTC, which is now an all-digital event. Here’s an excerpt from NVIDIA’s announcement:
We have exciting products and news to share with you.
But this isn’t the right time. We’re going to hold off on sharing our GTC news for now.
That way, our employees, partners, the media and analysts who follow us, and our customers around the world can focus on staying safe and reducing the spread of the virus.
We will still stream tons of great content from researchers and developers who have prepared great talks.
Several rumors have emerged over the last few months regarding NVIDIA’s Ampere architecture. One report claims that Ampere tech will have a 50 percent increase in performance while halving power consumption. A leak suggests that the upcoming RTX 2080 could have up to 20GB of GDDR6 memory. Unfortunately, people sitting on the edge of their seats to find out more about the upcoming technology will have to wait until NVIDIA finds a better time to share details.
