The RTX 30 series uses the Ampere architecture, which was just announced in May 2020. The adoption of the Ampere architecture has significantly improved power efficiency, and 'performance per power consumption has jumped 1.9 times,' NVIDIA says. However, AnandTech, a technology news site, said, 'The 1.9-fold number is a little exaggerated, so it may be about 1.5-fold at most.' On the other hand, the power consumption itself is also rising, and the thermal design power of the top model RTX 3090 is 350 W, the RTX 3080 is 320 W, finally exceeding the 300 W level.
Although the GPU has not been announced, it is likely that GA 102 is adopted from the photograph of the GA 102 die
Furthermore, unlike the RTX 20 series, which used TSMC's 12nm process, the RTX 30 series uses Samsung 8nm process. In fact, AnandTech from the photo of the die that has been leaked, with 500mm 2 little over a large area of GA102 is estimated, has pointed out that is even smaller than the TU102 of 754mm 2. As a result, the transistor density has increased significantly, and the number of transistors in GA102 has reached 28 billion.
The number of
The release date and price of the RTX 3090 is $1,499 on September 20, 2020, RTX 3080 is $699 on September 17, 2020, and RTX 3070 is $499 during October 2020. However, the price has risen a little more in Japan, the RTX 3090 is 229,800 yen, the RTX 3080 is 109,800 yen, the RTX 3070 is 79,980 yen, and it is purchased as a personal import even including shipping and tariffs. It may be cheaper.
