It’s official: Nvidia Ampere is the architecture that the manufacturer’s next-generation RTX GPUs are based on. During Nvidia’s mysterious September 1 event, the manufacturer launched its three shiny new GPUs – the RTX 3080, RTX 3070 and the Titan-level RTX 3090, with the first one being the flagship. And, they’re all staggering.
Nvidia Ampere was initially released mostly for data center devices with no GeForce in sight, just like Volta a few years ago. So, despite months of rumors and speculations, there was a bit of doubt that it will be the architecture for the next-generation RTX cards.
