Chinese chip manufacturing company Moore Threads Recently, it unveiled its latest graphics card, the MTT S80, which is based on the Chunxiao architecture for PC desktop computers. The manufacturer has promised performance comparable to Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Ti graphics processor, but the actual performance of this graphics card is currently unknown.
The Moore Threads MTT S80 graphics processor is based on the Chunxiao architecture, which includes 4,096 parallel processing (Stream Processing), 128 tensor cores, and two 256 output units for texture and rendering respectively, which will work at a processing clock of 1.80 GHz.
PCIe 5.0 support and computing power close to RTX 3060
In addition, the graphics card has 16 GB of GDDR6 memory with a data transfer rate of 14 GT/s/s, which is connected to the GPU using a 256-bit connection with a maximum bandwidth of 448 GB/s. In terms of computing performance, the MTT S80 offers a maximum computing power of 14.4 FP32 TFLOPS, which is slightly less than the peak performance of the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti.
However, the real performance of this graphics card in the game and benchmarks should be tested and it seems that the results have not been published yet. This new GPU comes with a software driver that supports DirectX and OpenGL APIs. However, Moore Threads has admitted that DirectX support is only available in 20 popular gaming titles such as Call of Duty, Counter-Strike and League of Legends, and for now, one should not expect much from this card.
The developer company also admitted that it has met and collaborated closely with the developers of Unity and Unreal Engine game engines to improve support for games made with these game engines. This graphics chip also uses a powerful video engine with support for AV1, H.264 and H.265 codecs, and support for 8K resolution is also included in this chip.
New communication ports are also supported in this product and this graphics card also uses DisplayPort 1.4 and HDMI 2.1. Interestingly, the manufacturer claims that the MTT S80 graphics card is the first consumer graphics card with PCIe 5.0 x16 support, while the new Nvidia Ada Lovelace card series supports PCIe Gen4. The specifications and capabilities of this GPU look promising on paper, but despite the US sanctions against China and companies operating in that country in the future, it remains to be seen how successful this graphics chip can be.
