Nvidia’s RTX 4000 Series Has an ADVANTAGE Over AMD!

It looks like Nvidia might be using newer technology than what AMD will be using for their next generation of GPUs. So, RDNA 3, AMD’s RX 7000 series of gaming GPUs, has been confirmed to be using a combination of TSMC’s 6nm and 5nm process nodes.

Specifically for Navi 33, it's all 6nm’s and for the bigger Navi 31 and 32 chips, AMD is supposedly using a mix of 5 and 6nm’s. Well, according to Moore's law is dead, Ada Lovelace, the RTX 4000 series of Nvidia GPU’s. It would use TSMC’s 4nm process. So ok ? But what does this mean ? Well, with smaller and smaller process nodes, you can get either a boost in performance, a more efficient chip, or you can have a balance of both.

Looking at all the rumors we have about the RTX 4000 chips though, it looks like Nvidia is throwing efficiency out the window. I mean at 600w for the rumored RTX 4090, we cant really say that its efficient. It's pretty surprising that Nvidia would go for the bleeding edge because this means it would cost them more to manufacture. And also, since these chips are supposed to be monolithic, it means that they get no cost savings from a chiplet design. Now, I know it's a little too early to make one but here is my prediction. I think that RTX 4000 might beat out AMD’s RDNA 3 graphics, but Since AMD is using a relatively older process node, and since they have the yield benefit of using chiplets for their GPU’s , I think that the price to performance crown will go to AMD. What are your predictions ? Put them down in the comments and we’ll revisit this later this year!
