The latest rumors about video cards expected to arrive in 2022 all agree on one point: the extremely high power jump. A few days ago we read about an AMD Radeon RX 7900 XT with nearly double the performance of the AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT and for the future NVIDIA series based on Lovelace architecture, there is talk of an even higher leap. According to WCCFTech, in fact, the top of the range model of the series NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 it could reach 81 TFLOPs of computing power, compared to 36 TFLOPs on the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090.
The estimate was made by combining the rumors of Greymon55, a renowned leaker, with the specifications revealed by Kopite, another important voice of the undergrowth linked to GPUs, who spoke of a flagship model with Lovelace architecture equipped with 18432 CUDA Core. Combining these with the over 2.2 GHz indicated by Greymon55 as the frequency for the AD102 GPU, the one that in the fully unlocked version should end up in the hypothetical NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090, the estimate of 81 TFLOP of FP32 computing power.
Of course, it remains to be seen how much of that power translates into an actual performance boost in game. On the other hand, we have already seen how certain values are linked to specific applications, as in the case of the transformation of the INT 32 cores of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 20 which in the following series have become in cores capable of switching from CUDA core to INT 32 mode. , guaranteeing imperious increases in certain graphics programs and more modest, albeit important, in gaming.
But in this case we are talking about an actual increase in the number of cores, which if it were to be confirmed would undoubtedly guarantee an imperative power leap, at least for the top model which, however, could cost a lot again. In fact, we speak of $ 2999 price tag for a card that would return to occupy the space of the Titan, detaching itself from the models intended mainly for gaming.
