    He's been dropping Ampere spec sheets since early 2019.
    Accurate to a T.

    Anyway, I hope AMD overprices this damn thing so I can buy one day one. I want proper 4K gaming this Christmas.

    There's Raja in the architecture day stream talking (with a smile) about still having scars on his back for trying to bring expensive like HBM to gaming at least twice." (timestamp 1:26:48)

    Who would have thought that "organic substrate" was such a literal thing.

    Exactly as it should be!

    If the rumors are to be believed that's 80 CUs vs 48 SMs. If GA104 comes anywhere near Big Navi that would be terrible.

    Was one who created the whole Nvidia-Samsung 10/8nm train, retweeted this latest RTX/DLS/Control/Wolf. bs. Other than that he's been... vague?

    Well, according to his ~14 months old leak:
    • GA102 = 5376 SPs / 384bit
    • GA103 = 3840 SPs / 320bit
    • GA104 = 3072 SPs / 256bit
    • GA106 = 1920 SPs / 192bit
    • GA107 = 1280 SPs / 128bit
    RTX 3090 has 5248, so it corresponds well. RTX 3080 has 4352, so Nvidia maybe decided to make it more powerful than the GA103's configuration (3840) allowed.

    This doesn't look very convincing. The number of SPs for each SKU should be locked in during design years ago.

    He's had more hits than misses. I don't think he ever said 8nm, he just said Samsung. And the verdict is still out on that - all we have so far is that Gainward spec sheet listing 7nm.

    His early 3090/GA102 info has been 100% accurate so far.

    And exactly because of that Nvidia couldn't change configuration of GA103 and used cut-down version of GA102 instead.

    Has there ever been a nvidia chip codename ending in 3, at least since the Tesla era?

    Seems to me they usually skip numbers 1, 3 and 5.

    After the "Poor Volta" debacle it's great to see AMD shut their mouth and hopefully just let the product speak for itself. Early over-hyped marketing makes for disappointment if the product doesn't deliver. Plus they're just probably waiting to see Nvidia's hand.

    Nvidia's launch is tomorrow, when is AMD’s?

    AMD shut their mouth? Really!!!

    What about the constant talk/articles about Big-Navi being the 2080Ti killer that I have seen like forever.

    It's not from AMD, it's from their fans.

    Yeah but they're not talking their stellar track record CPUs either.
    Right as Milan ships.
    No one knows.
    None of that is AMD, they've mentioned their Q4 lineup (not even all of it) thrice during three ER calls. That's it.

    All comparisons AMD did regarding RDNA2 were relative to their own previous products, so far. At some point Lisa Su said their GPUs in 2020 would be competitive in the high end, and that's all.

    Their CFO also said the high-end part launches before consoles, and that's roughly it.
    Adorable.

    Good. It's better to talk softly and carry a big stick.

    I can't wait to see how all the console SSD and "targeted optimizations" speculation actually turns out.
