Nvidia's hints at Ampere with DGX A100 Trademark - GA100 GPU Spotted?

More and more hints have started to a drop surrounding Nvidia's rumoured Ampere graphics architecture, and the company's latest trademark has suggested that Ampere will start as a professional-grade offering, not a Geforce/gaming product. 

The hardware leaker @KOMACHI_ENSAKA has uncovered a new Nvidia trademark for the term "DGX A100", suggesting that a new A100 graphics chip will be used to create the next generation of Nvidia DGX workstation systems. These systems are purpose-built for AI applications, and typically use four Tesla series graphics cards. 

"DGX A100" is possibly a reference to Nvidia's rumoured A100 graphics core, a new graphics/AI chip which will be based on the Ampere architecture. Later this month, Nvidia plans to host its GTC 2020 keynote, where the company plans to showcase its "latest platform breakthroughs in AI, Deep Learning, Autonomous Vehicles, Robotics and Professional Graphics".  

Note that Nvidia did not mention gaming in its GTC announcement, though they did say to get "Amped", suggesting that they plan to reveal Ampere-based professional products, likely in the form of new Tesla or Quadro series graphics cards. 

With Ampere, we expect Nvidia to improve its AI performance significantly through the power of updated Tensor cores and other architectural enhancements. Nvidia hasn't spoken about its Ampere architecture, so we can only guess at the architectural improvements that Nvidia plans to offer its customer. 

GTC 2020 will be streamed on YouTube on May 14th at 6 AM Pacific Time, which translates to 2 PM in the UK.

With all currently available info it could be anytime really, It could be next month for all we know, Now is not a good time to buy a 2080 Ti.Quote

I highly doubt it will be May. Given we are in May now and they have not even announced anything yet. That said there is apparently a Keynote on May 14th.

Even if they launched on that day shipping logistics would be a problem IMO. I'm not saying buy a 2080Ti (because it's not worth it over a 2080s) but yeah I expect even if they launched it today it would be a while before we see stock.Quote

If you want to waste money twice in one generation you should definitely purchase 2080ti for 1100 - 1400£ �� Your best move now is to sell 2080 super for decent money before they announce 3000 series and make your 2080super worth 250-400 at the most. Wait for next gen and purchase 2080ti standard performance with much better ray tracing for 500-700£ Downside being you might be without a gpu for 2-3 months.Quote
