A picture of the alleged Amper GA102 GPU has been posted online.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 GPU appears online: GA102
Is this GA102? A picture of GA102-300 GPU has been posted online. This is the same GPU variant that we expect to see in NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 graphics card.
The picture does not show the full graphics processor, but we can read the codename quite clearly. The processor is a qualification sample (QUAL SAMPLE), which means it was distributed to board partners for custom graphics card development.
Since not a single corner of the package has been pictured in full, it is not possible to determine the exact shape of the GPU and its die size. Other rumors have suggested that the die might have an area of ~627 mm2.
NVIDIA GA102-300 is expected to feature 5248 CUDA cores. The graphics card featuring this GPU, the RTX 3090, is expected to be equipped with 24 GB of GDDR6X memory. This is currently the flagship GPU for NVIDIA RTX 30 series.
NVIDIA is set to announce its next-generation Ampere GeForce RTX 30 graphics cards during a special GeForce Live event on September 1st. The reviews and product availability are both expected throughout September. The exact dates are not yet known.
