Nvidia’s Ampere is more likely to be post-Volta than post-Turing gaming GPUs

The Nvidia Ampere GPUs may represent the next generation of graphics architecture from the big green GPU making machine, but will they be monstrous professional-level chips, or the sort of silicon shinies to make all our games look awesome? We’re mostly betting on the former, and I’m speculating that would make Ampere the logical successor to Volta rather than a gaming design like Turing. read more

Samsung’s “world’s first” 3nm node will offer 30% higher performance than 5nm

Samsung has succeeded in manufacturing the world’s first 3nm process technology, announcing more details of the advanced process node following a visit by its vice chairman, Lee Jae-yong, to its Research Institute at Samsung’s Mars plant this week. The 3nm design uses a new Gate-All-Around (GAA) technology instead of the classic FinFET transistor design, which is set to offer 30% higher processor performance compared with the upcoming 5nm node. read more
