Nvidia’s new consumer graphics cards have only recently gone on sale, but there are already rumors about what’s in store for us in the future. Earlier we wrote that Nvidia is working on the Blackwell architecture. It is assumed that this will be a chip for specialized computing accelerators, which will replace the Nvidia Hopper. The Nvidia H100 accelerator based on the GH100 4nm GPU chip is the most powerful graphics solution, while the GeForce RTX 40xx graphics cards are based on the Ada Lovelace architecture. At the same time, both architectures have a number of common features. Therefore, Blackwell, with minor changes, can become the basis for gaming consumer solutions of the GeForce RTX 50xx series.
The RedGamingTech channel shares rumors and speculations on this topic. The future Blackwell architecture will have an entirely new SM structure. It is expected that this will be an MCM design chip, i.e. chiplet with several silicon crystals on one substrate. Blackwell will use a super-fast bus that will link the various blocks. An important innovation will be hardware noise reduction for ray tracing, which will bring a qualitative leap to ray tracing rendering. According to RedGamingTech, the next generation of Blackwell will deliver the biggest performance jump in Nvidia’s history. At the same time, there are no specifics and preliminary characteristics of the new GPUs yet, and it is too early to talk about this.
