NVIDIA Confirms Announcement On January 12th Of Mobile GeForce RTX 30 And Resizable BAR Graphics Cards

NVIDIA has hinted that the GeForce RTX: Game On event on January 12 will feature the mobile GeForce Ampere and Resizable BAR. The first two images that appeared in the teaser shows a gaming laptop and a discrete GeForce RTX graphics card in a mobile form factor.


It is expected that we will talk about the GA104 chip, which, according to rumours, will form the basis of the GeForce RTX 3080 and RTX 3070 mobile accelerators. Both cards will have 8 GB of GDDR6 video memory (therefore, use 8 modules), but the mobile RTX 3080 will also have access in the version with 16 GB memory.

Another image confirms that NVIDIA will demonstrate the operation of the Resizable BAR (Base Address Registers) technology found in the PCI Express interface specifications since version 2.0. This is the core of AMD Smart Access Memory (SAM), which provides performance gains when running new Radeon RX 6000 graphics cards with compatible processors. Whereas in ordinary Windows-based PCs, processors can directly access only a portion of the graphics memory up to 256 MB, the Resizable BAR technology can expand the data channel, allowing the processor to use the entire video memory array at once. This removes potential bottlenecks and delivers up to 15% performance gains in select games. The technology is especially relevant now,

The teaser also briefly shows the third-person shooter Outriders, created by People Can Fly. The game will be released on April 1, but a free demo version will be available to those who wish, starting February 25. The teaser hints that this game will use some kind of NVIDIA technology.

An element of the Ampere desktop reference video card with the GeForce RTX logo on it is also noticed. It is assumed that the event may show a GeForce RTX 3060 12 GB video card performed by the Founders Edition.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX: Game On is an upcoming event starting January 12 at 9:00 AM PT (20:00 Moscow time). It will be streamed to Twitch and YouTube.
