While Nvidia has just unveiled its RTX 3080, RTX 3090 and RTX 3070 graphics cards and AMD is preparing to show us more about its Radeon RX 6000 series GPUs, known as the “Big Navi,” it looks like an epic clash out of GPUs could happen in 2021, with rumors that AMD will bring out an even more powerful ‘Biggest Navi’ card and Nvidia will counter with its RTX 3000 Titan.
As we heard recently, the upcoming AMD ‘Big Navi’ GPU may not match the performance of the Nvidia RTX 3080, but Moore’s Law is Dead YouTube channel claims it is not AMD’s high-end GPU In fact, the company plans to launch a ̵
According to Moore’s Law is dead and reported by NotebookCheckThe ‘Biggest Navi’ GPU will have a cluster with 80 processing units and HBM2 VRAM. As NotebookCheck suggests, this could be a graphics card aimed at both professionals and enthusiasts like the AMD Radeon VII. So offer a level of proficiency that is not suitable for the average gamer.
If AMD is actually preparing a Biggest Navi card, it could mean that Team Red has the most powerful consumer GPU on the market – something Team Green doesn’t want. How could Nvidia react to this?
In a video you can watch below, Moore’s Law is Dead suggests that Nvidia could tackle the threat posed by a powerful AMD GPU by releasing an RTX 3000 Titan card with potentially 48GB of GGDR6X memory.
Well, this is more of a theory than a solid rumor, but if you look at Nvidia’s past publications, this is doable. By releasing an RTX 3000 Titan with 48 GB GDDR6X memory and a 352-bit memory bus for a whopping 1012 GB / s (1 TB / s) memory bandwidth (as calculated by TweakTown) the Titan would be an extremely powerful card, which in turn is aimed at professionals and enthusiasts – and probably has a suitable price.
Nvidia usually releases its Titan cards later in the life cycle along with its current generation of GPUs. These cards offer the absolute pinnacle of performance for a consumer card.
In addition to the last-generation RTX 2000 Turing cards, Nvidia has released the RTX Titan, a GPU with 24 GB of GDDR6 that costs $ 2,499. If there was an RTX 3000 Titan, we could look at an even more expensive GPU that could retail for around $ 3,000 to $ 3,500.
But how likely is that? Moore’s Law is Dead team is based on the fact that Micron, which makes memory, will have GDDR6X 23 Gbps memory by Q1 2021. This coincides with the supposed launch of the AMD ‘Biggest Navi’ GPU, and a Titan graphics card would fit nicely.
48GB is recommended for storage as it is a big leap from the RTX 3090, which comes with 24GB of GDDR6X memory and costs $ 1,499 (£ 1,399, about AU $ 2,030).
So, yeah, it’s a bit of a tedious process, but it’s not a ridiculous idea. When it happens, things will come very interesting in early 2021. We can hardly wait.
