The launch of next-generation consoles, PS5 and Xbox Series X, is on its way; and fans are busy debating as to which console is more powerful. However, Nvidia plans on destroying the current as well as next-gen consoles graphics with its RTX 3000 Series.
A reputed YouTube channel, Moore’s Law is Dead, speculates that Nvidia’s upcoming RTX 3000 Series could target 4k resolution gaming as a standard.
The rumored RTX 3080 Ti flagship with 21 teraflops of horsepower could outperform Xbox Series X with nine teraflops. Also, according to the rumor, Nvidia plans to match this much horsepower with GA102 GPU and 18gpbs of GDDR6 video memory.
What’s even surprising is that according to the channel, the new chips will provide boost clock speed up to 2.5Ghz. Also, with Geforce RTX 3000 Series, Nvidia will move towards 7nm architecture. So, its Ampere architecture will stand shoulder-to-shoulder with AMD’s RDNA architecture.
Currently, GeForce RTX 20-Series can run games at 4K; however, without the top of the line RTX 2080 Ti or RTX 2080 Super, achieving maximum settings and ray-tracing is quite difficult. Nevertheless, according to the rumor, this could be easily achieved with RTX 30-Series.
The new RTX 30-Series chips are speculated to be 50%-70% more potent than RTX 2080 Ti in most titles. So, we can say that if Nvidia is actually working on something like this, then Sony and Microsoft have a reason to be worried.
