Today, the GPU Technology Conference (GTC) of Nvidia is kicked off in an all-digital format. Jensen Huang, the chief executive officer took to the stage to render tidbits of the whole year. Nvidia plans to launch six generations of hardware by now to 2025: including “Ampere Next” GPU and “Ampere Next Next” GPU.
The news is represented through a roadmap, which exposes Nvidia’s rough hardware projects for the next four years. The company aims to launch six generations of hardware by now to 2025. Two of them will be rooted in GPUs: Ampere Next in 2022 and Ampere Next Next in 2024. However, these names aren’t final.
It will be alluring to think about another year of enjoying– considering the prevalent GPU shortages we’ve seen lately– the 30-series GPUs of Nvidia before the next hardware leap arrives.
Moreover, the Ampere Next will probably be marked as RTX 4000-series, with Next Next taking on the 5000-series titles in case Nvidia adheres to its existing RTX naming conventions.
It’s unsafe to say anything early about efficiency, performance, or cooling capabilities for these next-generation GPUs. However, other items are also coming up on the roadmap of Nvidia. Such as ARM-based CPUs (called Grace and Grace Next). The company designed to release these CPUs in 2023 and 2025.
Also, the Data Processing Unit (DPU) of Nvidia Bluefield will arrive with two new designs. The Bluefield 3 in 2023 and the Bluefield 4 in 2024. The tech giant expects the new DPUs will provide more efficient raw processing power. The Bluefield 3 is claimed to arrive with a 10x performance boost as compared to its predecessor. While Bluefield 4 will arrive with 100x greater performance.
