Please note that this post is tagged as a rumor.

NVIDIA is allegedly planning to introduce at least three memory variants of the PG132 board.

NVIDIA PG132: 24GB, 20GB and 10GB

It is rumored that NVIDIA might launch three variants based on the PG132 reference board. This board is rumored to be using NVIDIA GA102 GPU, the flagship gaming processor for the upcoming series. It is expected that all three high-end parts: RTX TITAN Ampere, RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3080, will all be based on this board. It has also been rumored that the PG133 board is also using the same GPUs, except these are NVIDIA Founders Edition models (with irregularly-shaped PCBs).

According to Wccftech, who are quoting sources close to unnamed board partner, NVIDIA is indeed planning to launch 20 GB model of Ampere RTX series. Earlier this week, the same rumor has appeared on Chiphell.

This rumor does not reflect what we hear about the series before, as Igor’sLAB suggested that PG132 board will ship in 24GB, 11GB and 10 GB variants. It is unclear if both 11GB and 20GB models are to be released, but it is quite clear that there is contradicting information for the same SKU.

The Radeon card based on Navi 21 GPU is expected to launch with 16GB and 12GB memory on board. This is possibly the performance segment NVIDIA was planning to introduce the PG132-20 board, featuring either 11GB or 20GB of memory.

It is also worth mentioning that last month @KkatCorgi, who has been actively providing Ampere rumors for months now, suggested that the highest-speced flagship Ampere model might even come with as much as 48GB of memory. However, that model is Quadro RTX A8000, meaning it is not aimed at gamers.

Below we attached charts from Wccftech and what we heard before from Igor’sLAB.
