Ampere GPU production trusted by Samsung
The network has new details about the Nvidia Ampere video cards. According to an informant on Twitter, which cannot be confirmed or disproved in any way, the new GPUs of the company will be produced using the 8 nm LLP process technology at Samsung facilities – despite the fact that almost all sources previously spoke about their production at TSMC’s 7 nm process technology. The insider is 100% sure of this data, and if so, then a large increase in the frequencies of the GeForce RTX 3000 should not be expected.
8 nm instead of 7 nm. Nvidia GeForce RTX 3000 Graphics Cards May Not Get Big Frequency Increases
The current Nvidia (Turing) GPUs are manufactured using the 12 nm process technology, so even 8 nm is a big step forward compared to it. But this step would have been greater if the TSMC 7-nanometer process technology had been used. Samsung itself says that the transition from the 10 nm LLP to 8 nm LLP process technology can reduce power consumption by 10% and increase component density while reducing the crystal area by 10%. So progress will be obvious, but a finer manufacturing process would allow an even greater increase in GPU frequencies.
