Next-gen Nvidia gaming GPUs reveal will be happening today at Nvidia’s pre-Gamescom 2018 event. However, before that happens code names for the upcoming Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti and Nvidia RTX 2080 have been leaked along with the possible indication for die shrunk versions of these GPUs.
The leak comes from Videocardz who took it to their Twitter account and revealed the codenames for the upcoming Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti and Nvidia RTX 2080 GPUs.
According to the leak, the Nvidia RTX 2080Ti is codenamed TU102-300A by Nvidia while the Nvidia RTX 2080 has been codenamed TU104-400A.
As noted by the Reddit user “dylan522p”, the reason for Nvidia to skip the TU100 series for its Turing GPUs is that it can’t really push FP64 performance higher compared to what Volta architecture has already achieved.
At the Quadro announcement, they only quoted GigaRays FP32, FP16, Int8, and Int4 performance for the 750mm2 monster GPU that is rumored for the 2080 Ti
Not only that, he further noted that Nvidia using the suffix “A” in the codename indicates that a lesser version of these GPUs with a shrunk die will launch a year after their initial release namely the GTX 280 and GTX 285 which will probably be codenamed as follows.
GTX 280: GT200-300-A2
GTX 285: GT200-350-B3
However, it is important to note that none of it is official so take it with a grain of salt. However, we won’t have to wait much longer as Nvidia will be revealing these GPUs along with their price and specs today at its pre-Gamescom 2018 show.
Speaking of the upcoming Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti and Nvidia RTX 2080, PNY listed these GPUs on its official website a couple of days ago confirming specs and pre-order pricing of these GPUs.
According to the listing, PNY is offering the pre-orders for PNY Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti for $1000 and RTX 2080 for $800.
Furthermore, another Nvidia GPU leak is making rounds on the internet. This particular leak is the PCB of RTX 2080.
The leaked images for the Nvidia RTX 2080 PCB don’t reveal much but it does confirm that the GPU will come equipped with eight GDDR6 memory modules (1 GB each) which will make a total of 8 GB of GDDR6 memory for the GPU.
Also, the pre-orders will start today for Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti and RTX 2080 if the rumor is to be believed.
This is according to an online retailer who claims that it has heard from the official channels that Nvidia RTX 2080 pre-orders will start as soon as Nvidia will announce the GPUs at pre-Gamescom 2018 event today.
