Nvidia’s Ampere architecture is barely out of the gate, especially when you factor in continued shortages of the new GeForce RTX 3080 and GeForce RTX 3090 — the theoretically top picks for the best graphics cards and GPU benchmarks hierarchy. The latest rumor from Digitimes (also discussed at TechPowerUp), however, is that the follow-up for Ampere is already on the way and could arrive as early as 2021. #MuchSalt #SpeculationTo be clear, we’ve already mused about this ourselves with the Ampere launch. There’s no question that TSMC’s N7 process is superior to Samsung’s 8N in nearly every important metric — except price and available production capacity. Besides N7, TSMC also has N7P, N7+, N6, and N5 nodes all in active production. In other words, there are a lot of options available for Nvidia to consider, any one of which should be better than Samsung 8N, provided TSMC and Nvidia can come to some sort of agreement on price.Considering Nvidia CEO Jensen has talked about Nvidia’s desire to diversify and not be reliant on any single supplier for chips, plus the shortages of RTX 30-series GPUs, it makes sense for Nvidia to think about shifting some future production over to TSMC….
