NVIDIA Ampere GA102F GPU Support Added To AIDA64, Is This The Chip Powering The GeForce RTX 3090 Ti?
A mysterious new NVIDIA Ampere GPU, the GA102F, has been added support within the latest version of AIDA64. There's currently no new graphics card that utilizes such a chip but it is very likely that this could be the one powering NVIDIA's upcoming flagship, the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti.
AIDA64 Adds Support For NVIDIA Ampere GA102F GPU, Is This The Chip That Powers GeForce RTX 3090 Ti?
The Ampere GA102 GPU is currently the biggest gaming silicon that NVIDIA ships. It powers a range of graphics cards including the RTX 3090, RTX 3080 Ti, RTX 3080, RTX A6000 & the RTX A5000. There is going to be a brand new SKU for the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti which will also be based on the GA102 silicon but it is going to be the fastest that the company has ever built. Sporting higher clocks & the full core configuration, the RTX 3090 Ti's GA102 GPU has been a difficult chip to manufacture & one of the reported causes for the delay of the flagship card.
AIDA64 has now added support for an entirely new GA102 GPU SKU, the GA102F & first guess will be that this is the chip that might power the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti graphics card. We can't say for sure what the 'F' stands for, it might be 'Full' since the RTX 3090 Ti rocks the full GA102 core config. The other guess is that this could be a specialized variant of the GA102 for the data center or cloud computing segment. Once again, I wouldn't say we know this for sure until we get to see the chip in action somewhere.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti 24 GB Graphics Card Specifications
At the heart of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti graphics card lies the GA102 GPU. The GA102 is the flagship gaming GPU and also the fastest gaming GPU that NVIDIA has produced. The GPU is based on Samsung's 8nm custom process node designed specifically for NVIDIA and features a total of 28 Billion transistors. It measures 628mm2 which makes it the 2nd biggest gaming GPU ever produced right below the Turing TU102 GPU which powered the RTX 2080 Ti and Titan RTX.
For the GeForce RTX 3090, NVIDIA has enabled a total of 84 SM units on its flagship which results in a total of 10,752 CUDA cores (vs 82 SM / 10496 cores on RTX 3090 Non-Ti). In addition to the CUDA cores, NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3090 Ti also comes packed with next-generation RT (Ray-Tracing) cores, Tensor cores, and brand new SM or streaming multi-processor units. The GPU runs at a base clock speed of 1560 MHz and a boost clock speed of 1860 MHz. The card has a TDP of 450W (a 100 Watt increase over the RTX 3090).
In terms of memory, the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti comes packed with 24 GB of memory and that too the next-generation GDDR6X design. With Micron's latest and greatest graphics memory dies, the RTX 3090 Ti can deliver GDDR6X memory speeds of 21 Gbps. That along with a bus interface of 384-bit will deliver a cumulative bandwidth of 1008 Gbps.
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti graphics card is also rumored to be the first PCIe Gen 5.0 compliant graphics card, rocking a single 16-pin power connector that can supply up to 600 Watts of power to the card.
Currently, it's an ongoing debate internally at several AIBs whether to feature the PCIe Gen 5.0 connector like NVIDIA's Founder Edition or go with standard 8-pin connectors. The Founders Edition is also going to utilize what seems to be an updated revision of the PG136 PCB board known as PG136C.
As for its feature set, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti 24 GB graphics card rocks all the modern NV feature set such as the latest NVENC Encoder and NVCDEC Decoder, support for the latest APIs, 2nd Generation ray-tracing cores, 3rd Gen Tensor cores. It packs all the modern RTX features such as DLSS, Reflex, Broadcast, Resizable-BAR, Freestyle, Ansel, Highlights, Shadowplay, and G-SYNC support too. The graphics card is expected to launch on 29th of March for a massive premium over the existing $1499 MSRP of the non-Ti variant.
