I really feel sad for you and the others, months of negative publicity on Ampere, downplaying every aspect of it based on false rumors, only to see it all crumbling down in the last few hours, at least try to have some tehcnical dignity and wait for the final reveal before spewing nonsense.
It still looks like an overpriced furnace. The exorbitant cooler and 300+ watt TDP confirm that, and it's unlikely to change in the next hour.

So yeah, there is a quiet mode.

If real, I nailed it!
I honestly think that Nvidia saw AMD pushing TDP's to stay competitive in performance, so they said screw it let's push our chips as hard as they do to look that much better on FPS graphs and give consumers an option to easily dial back if they don't feel the extra heat is worth the performance.

Such an odd hill to hold right before most of those rumors are confirmed.

If Ampere GPUs have almost all of the GEMM stuff from A100 die in them it makes actually sense, why Nvidia is calling them Ampere, why it has so high density and so high Transistor count, with only few SM's.

I really cannot wait for Whitepaper on gaming cards.
Yeah, I think I have nailed this.

Its EXACTLY the same GEMM stuff from GA100 chip.

IIRC the tensor cores can do some fp32 operations with Ampere. Not sure if it will translate into something that can be used with games.
Its THE SAME improvement that we got with A100.

Go look how "standard" FP32 performance looks on that GPU compared to V100, that does not rely on GEMM stuff.

What a pathetic post, Am I the one who insisted NVIDIA gaming cards are not coming this year? Am I the one who claimed they are 8nm? Am I the one who claimed so many other FUD and worthless posts and arguments that are devoid of any facts?!

The audacity of some of the members here who times and times again claim certain things to be absolute facts and then when they are proven wrong have no shame to show their faces again with yet another set of pathetic claims.

And then you dare talk to me about my post history!! LOL that's not even funny.
So the question is, do you have the 'audacity' to retract your post and come out of the hole you dug for yourself? Talk about eating your words...
