    I remember reading that there was a key you could get that unlocked it. But that was ages ago, probably not the case no more. As I say, only good for benching anyways. Single card is the way to go for gaming imo and the top dog is the Titan.

    Which depending on the day of the week nvidia says it may or may not be a gaming card.

    Exactly. But who cares what they say. We all know it is the best card. The Titan RTX does everything the 2080Ti does, but better. Makes it the best card.

    If you read the tweets,it appears the whole consumer range is made on Samsung 8NM. It is the compute GPUs which will be made on TSMC 7NM.

    That lines up with up earlier rumours except i thought at least the 3080ti/Titan would still be on 7nm - but it's also logical to only use 7nm for the GA100 workstation/server cards and 8nm for gaming cards

    I wouldn't assume anything other than we know some professional/workstation lines are TSMC - nVidia spent a lot of time evaluating price, availability, etc. on the different nodes and some people (who have a connection to or work in the industry but not for nVidia) might be aware of engineering runs that aren't necessarily representative on where the cores for those products will actually be mass produced.

    Hopefully a proper leak with benches will get out.

    the workload determines the power draw. Amps x voltage = watts

    rumours x ampere = posts

    Capacity is probably the main consideration.

    Where are the leaks and rumours, we need moaaaar. I'm getting so impatient to play Flight Simulator and I need to get bottom loved by nVidia in order to do it.

    I'm hoping by end of July so only 4 weeks we'll have some very solid concrete leaks and not rumours... me personally can't wait!

    This isn't a new rumour but @kopite7kimi on twitter seems confident that this is the case and he has form on getting his info right in the past.

    Would this tie in with the other leaks about high TDPs for the Ampere gaming cards (upto 375W) if Nvidia has been forced to up the voltage to compensate for Samsung's process node?

    EDIT: Didn't realise @CAT-THE-FIFTH had already posted links to this twitter but I've added what was claimed about power usage by the same person :p

    Could be a ongoing capacity issue at tsmc

    Word is Apple has ordered tsmc to make 40 million A14 and A14X processors
