Don’t expect the NVIDIA Ampere GPUs to be launched at GTC 2020 in March 2020

I wasn’t originally planning to publish this article. After all, we hadn’t over-hyped NVIDIA’s “you won’t be disappointed” claims about GTC 2020. However, and since some people believe that Ampere will come out in March 2020, I wanted to share my own thoughts. No, and as Igor’s Lab stated, the NVIDIA Ampere GPUs will not release in March 2020.

Igor’s Lab claims that whoever expects big, real existing bomb news regarding the Ampere GPUs will be disappointed. Like always, NVIDIA will most likely focus on AI and Deep Learning and Data Center at GTC 2020. There might be a teaser regarding Ampere, however, don’t expect anything mind-blowing.

This falls in line with what we’ve been hearing these past few months. Seriously, March 2020 is too early for an Ampere launch. Let’s not forget that NVIDIA launched its Turing GPUs in August 2018. In other words, a Gamescom 2020 launch event seems more likely about the Ampere GPUs.

Before closing, I should note that Igor’s Lab is a very reliable source. And again, a Gamescom 2020 Ampere event is the most likely scenario at this point. So yeah, don’t expect anything groundbreaking during GTC 2020. Truth be told, NVIDIA may drops some teasers. However, you should really temper your expectations. Unless of course NVIDIA surprises everyone (really doubtful right now, but who knows).
