While there has been a lot of debate regarding the upcoming Nvidia gaming graphics cards, it is safe to assume that the upcoming graphics cards will be divided into two categories, Nvidia Ampere gaming graphics cards and Nvidia Turing graphics cards for cryptocurrency mining. Here we are going to be looking at everything that we know about Nvidia Ampere gaming graphics cards that will be coming out next.
Everything That we Know About Nvidia Ampere Gaming Graphics Cards
As of right now, we have got plenty of leaks, reports and rumors that we are going to include in the following article but plenty of information that is included here has not been confirmed by Nvidia so take this information with a grain of salt.
Nvidia Ampere Release
Nvidia Ampere release date is something that is being debated right now while some sources say that the graphics cards will be released at GTC, there are other sources that claim that the Nvidia Ampere graphics cards will not be announced at GTC or even GDC and that the conferences will focus on areas like AI, Deep Learning and what not.
GTC is one platform where you can expect an announcement other than that Computex is also a potential platform where Nvidia could announce the next generation graphics cards for gaming.
Nvidia Ampere Pricing
While we have no solid numbers regarding how Nvidia Ampere pricing will go Nvidia has said that the upcoming graphics cards will be more expensive as compared to the Nvidia Pascal launch prices. The following is the reason that Nvidia has provided.
All new cell phones coming out by Apple and Samsung (and others) last year started using the same memory as graphics cards. Apple and Samsung are willing to pay more for this memory to make sure they get it first and all of it that they need. This has created a shortage of memory for the much smaller companies like MSI, Gigabyte, Asus, and EVGA to make graphics cards.
Nvidia Ampere Will Be Locked For Mining
We have been getting word that these upcoming graphics cards will be locked and won’t be able to be used for mining purposes. If that is indeed the case then this will be helpful for gamers as miners will not find these cards attractive but as of right now we are not sure how Nvidia plans on pulling this off and some are claiming that this cannot be done.
We will let you know more information about Nvidia Ampere graphics cards as it becomes available. We have been contemplating whether or not the prices of current graphics cards will decrease with the release of the Nvidia GTX 2080 as well as other Nvidia Ampere graphics cards and you can check out all about that here.
Let us know what you think about Nvidia Ampere graphics cards and whether or not this is something that you might be interested in getting for your future upgrade.
