There have several rumours surrounding Ampere, NVIDIA’s alleged successor to its Turing GPU architecture that is on the current market, floating around the internet. Recently, it appears that the two unnamed NVIDIA GPUs have popped up GeekBeench, both with 7552 CUDA Cores and 6912 CUDA Cores, respectively.
To be precise, the GeekBench specifications don’t list down the CUDA core count for both GPUs, but rather the respective Compute Units (CU) for each model. For the uninitiated, though, CUDA cores are essentially the CU count multiplied by 64.
The first NVIDIA GPU, specifically, lists down an OpenCL score of 184096 points with 24GB of graphics memory clocked at 1.11GHz. Along with 118 Compute Units. One thing to note is that the Geekbench listing doesn’t specify what sort of memory format the GPU is running on. Seeing how the current both NVIDIA’s Turing and AMD’s Navi GPU architecture both run on GDDR6, it’s not wrong to deduce that the unnamed GPUs are doing the same.

As for the other GPU, it has a lower OpenCL score of 141654 points, as well as fewer CUDA cores at 6912 cores. However, the GPU seems to be running a whopping 47GB of graphics memory at a clockspeed of 1.01GHz.
At the moment, it’s unclear when NVIDIA intends to make the existence of these alleged GPUs public, considering its policy of not talking about unreleased and unfinished products. That said, GTC 2020 is just around the corner, so we’re kind of hoping we’ll get some sort of information about the GPUs then.
