With the Ampere GPU lineup’s launch dates getting close, more and more leaks are being spotted. The recent is the entry of what appears to be Nvidia Ampere graphics cards codes listed in the EEC database, as spotted by PC Gamer.
MSI has recently submitted multiple Ampere RTX graphics cards to the Eurasian Economic Commission, a total of 29 different SKUs. MSI has registered them as video cards, but without the actual GPU nomenclature. According to the listing of the EEC database three different GPU models are detailed, having different variations. There are the 602-V388, 602-V389, and 602-V390 SKUs, and if we go by MSI’s previous nomenclature, the lower number seems to be related to the high end cards.
There are a total of fourteen V388 models, eleven V389 and four V390 SKUs. But these entries do not fully confirm the RTX 3070, RTX 3080, and RTX 3090’s actual product codename.
For comparison, in the RTX 20-series V375 referred to the RTX 2060, V373 was the RTX 2070, V372 featured the RTX 2080 GPU, and finally the V371 code represented the high-end RTX 2080 Ti cards. So the V388 variants could be the RTX 3090 cards, V389 the RTX 3080, and the four V390 codes will house the RTX 3070 GPU.
Like mentioned before, from this listing it appears that three SKUs are in development, but that does not mean all SKUs are going to come out simultaneously, as some of the Models may never launch. MSI is just registering these variants. EEC submissions have been very accurate in the past as well, sometimes months ahead of the actual launch of these GPUs.
NVIDIA’s upcoming RTX 3000 series Ampere cards are rumored to be built on the Samsung’s 8nm process node. Nvidia has also recently ceased the production of the RTX 20 series of GPUs to make room for the Ampere lineup. Nvidia is hosting a Geforce Special Event on September 1st, and we expect the company to announce the next-gen Ampere Gaming GPUs.
