IN A NUTSHELL:
- The Nvidia Ampere architecture will include products dedicated to professionals, data centers and gamers;
- Chipsets dedicated to individual segments will be built similarly, but will have different configurations.
Nvidia has confirmed that the new Ampere architecture will include both professional and data center GPUs, as well as GeForce gaming chipsets (via Dark Side of Gaming). Jensen Huang, the company's president, informed about it during a recent press briefing.
"Ampere will eventually replace Nvidia’s Turing and Volta chips with a single platform that streamlines Nvidia’s GPU lineup," said Huang.
It should be noted that products dedicated to particular applications will differ in their configurations.
“There’s great overlap in the architecture, but not in the configuration," said Nvidia's CEO.
It is worth recalling that Nvidia Ampere graphics cards do not have a release date set for the moment. However, the experts expect them to be released at the end of this year. Rumors also suggest that all chipsets based on this architecture will have hardware support for ray tracing technology.
