Media reported that Nvidia had planned to release the new ampere architecture at the Graphics Technology Conference (GTC 2020) in March, but the event was cancelled due to a new corona virus outbreak. In a new report, Tweaktown said that Nvidia has decided to postpone the release of the GeForce RTX 3000 Series graphics card based on the new architecture until August.
The Ampere architecture is understood to be committed to up to 75 per cent improvement, a significant improvement over the company’s current 12nm Turing architecture. The report also notes that Quadro RTX products based on the new architecture will also be presented together.
Given that the Computex 2020 has been postponed until September, Nvidia may see this as the best time to make public announcements.
In addition, Nvidia’s current generation of high-end GeForce RTX graphics cards is ready to support the Microsoft DirectX12 Final API, which is expected to be released with Windows 10 2004 in a few weeks.
