A few weeks ago, I wrote about how it’s a terrible time to buy a graphics card—at least a high-end card. The reasoning is simple: Nvidia’s Ampere GPUs are coming soon, and AMD’s Big Navi isn’t far behind. If you want yet another reason to not buy a high-end card, however, just look at prices. Six months ago, the RTX 2080 Ti could be found for around $1,050, and the RTX 2080 Super was regularly available for $650. Now, you’d be lucky to find either GPU at the original launch prices of $1,200 and $700. If that’s not enough to go on, I’ve heard some companies will have ‘final’ Ampere GPUs as early as next week.
A very interesting Sony patent has surfaced, showing scalable multiple APU technology. We delve into how this tech works, and whether we think this will be for the PS5 Pro or future next gen consoles like the Playstation 6. This is a very interesting technology, that could definitely be the future of what we see spec wise in future consoles.
Some insane leaks for Nvidia’s GeForce Ampere graphics card have popped up, giving us a peak at the rumored improved specs and performance of the RTX 30 series. These benchmarks show some insane gains vs Turing, and will definitely be interesting for AMD to compete against with Navi 2X RDNA GPUs. We also have some rumors for the next gen RTX Titan.
