Nvidia is allegedly preparing to launch the RTX 30 Ampere series GPUs in August. Based on the leaks, PR interaction and also its not-so-incognito plan to discontinue four of its RTX 20 series graphics cards is a dead giveaway. ASUS has a non-reference design under its drawing board that was also leaked. Nvidia’s Founders Edition cooler for the RTX 30 series was the worst kept secret. It is said that Nvidia RTX 3080 will have a TDP higher than 300W. Hence, Nvidia will allegedly have to use the all-not-new 12pin interface for the graphics cards.
Nvidia is reportedly started to discontinue its Turning graphics card to make space for the upcoming RTX 30 series which uses the ‘Ampere’ GPUs. This apparently includes the RTX 2070, RTX 2070 Super, RTX 2080 Super and the RTX 2080 Ti. Nvidia isn’t confirming it officially, but it isn’t either. It shouldn’t be surprising in any case that eventually Nvidia will have to make room for the upcoming RTX 30 series graphics cards. What matters is when as it helps to have a ballpark time frame about its release.
A couple of updates from Nvidia- newly released GeForce 451.67 WHQL Game Ready driver and the inclusion of ‘Death Stranding’ RTX bundles. Since Death Stranding includes DLSS 2.0, Nvidia must have seen it as a good idea to incentivise RTX 20 series purchases. Of course, RTX 30 series is going to arrive which uses Ampere architecture. Leaks were pretty fragmented until recently.
New rumours circulating with the Ampere based RTX 30 series graphics cards being made by Samsung 8nm LPP process, contrary to the earlier assuming TSMC 7nm. The original speculation had weight since the Ampere A100 was already known to use TSMC 7nm node.

Nvidia Ampere graphics cards are coming soon but it seems that respective partners have already finalized its Ampere non-reference designs, allegedly. This is the leaked image from the supposed ASUS ROG Strix RTX 3080 Ti (or Super), the flagship which will use the 8nm Ampere chip. Earlier it was assuming Nvidia was going to have these fabricated from TSMC using its 7nm process. These will success the first generation RTX graphics cards that took advantage of the Windows DXR feature on Windows 10, bringing in-game Direct X-Ray Tracing.
