What name will it have? this includes model name, manufacturer and whether its Nvidia, AMD, etc (maybe another competitor)

How many gigs of Vram will it have?

How fast will it be? this includes base clock speed, boost clock speed and memory clock speed

What kind of cooling system will it have? will it be water-cooled, aircooled (how many fans?) or passive cooled

How much power will it draw?

How much will it cost?

In eight years there is a pretty significant chance that you are going to have seen at least one if not two disruptive technology shifts that make the questions you asked pretty much impossible to answer.

Well i understand and agree with your statements. also the making of ARM soc chips will most likely be out by then. Graphics cards will be a thing of the past.

Well, we already have multi-chip GPUs. You can expect that trend to continue. The absolute final nail in the coffin for SLI and Crossfire. Just pile more chips on, no need for a second card until you want more compute performance.

The target process nodes from GPUs might start hitting a brick wall pretty soon, so parallelism makes sense. They might have a few process node shrinks in them, but they won't be able to keep that level of power output up. They will have to scale back on frequency and power output per chiplet. Spreading out into smaller chiplets will make cooling easier and allow for a lot more computational cores. Hopefully enough that they can really scale back power without losing performance.

You can look at Apple and their use of the latest TSMC nodes and the GPU power they can squeeze out of such a low wattage chip.

That pretty much covers things through 2025. Beyond that, more and more ray tracing and AI/Deep Learning performance?

I would expect at least one doubling of memory density by 2030. So your top end cards might have 48/64GB of RAM and enterprise cards double that. They've been moving pretty fast these last two generations in that regard.
