China is not currently considered a high-end producer of gaming GPUs, but this country and the companies active in it are constantly striving to become one of the top producers of consumer graphics cards, and in this regard, recently New benchmark of the first Chinese gaming graphics card of Moore Threads company (MTT S80) Released with PCIe 5.0 support.
As mentioned, China and the companies operating in this country do not have extensive activities in the global market, and therefore, when this graphics card was introduced, it created a lot of expectations. Moore Threads, the Chinese company that manufactures this card, was formed by the former vice president of the global division of Nvidia and General Motors China in 2020, and this company is considered as a completely new entrant to the market in the graphics processor manufacturing sector.
In addition to being native to the MTT S80 graphics card in China, this GPU has also excited enthusiasts outside of China due to its support for PCIe 5.0. MTT S80 is the first gaming graphics card based on PCIe 5.0, while the RTX 40 and RX 7000 (RDNA 3) product series are all based on PCIe 4.0.
The MTT S80 graphics card is considered to be the successor to the MTT S60, and on paper it comes with modern design support and software requirements. MTT S80 is built with 12nm node technology supporting new graphics APIs including CUDA, DirectX, OpenCL, OpenGL and Vulkan.
Support for H264, H265, VP9 and AV1 video codecs is also included in this card. This GPU comes with PCIe 5.0 x16 support and 4096 MUSA cores operating at 1.8 GHz. These specifications enable the new Chinese graphics card to deliver 14.4 teraflops of performance, and based on this information, the card can be categorized between the RTX 3060 and 3060 Ti. The manufacturer has equipped this GPU with 16 GB of GDDR6 memory and a 256-bit memory interface.

This arrangement is suitable for a maximum theoretical memory bandwidth of up to 448 GB/s, in the same conditions as the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti. The MTT S80 has a typical dual-slot design with dedicated three-fan cooling support. This GPU uses an 8-pin EPS connector with a maximum electrical power of 300 watts to benefit from the required energy. The output ports of MTT S80 are the same as RTX 4090 and in addition support for DisplayPort 1.4a ports, HDMI 2.1 and 8K displays are also included in it.
However, it is difficult to measure the MTT S80 graphics card benchmark and apparently the instability and poor performance of the driver has caused the inability to reach the maximum processing power of the card. In this regard, a Twitter user with the username Löschzwerg, who performed the benchmark, stated that the overall use of the card in the test conditions was not optimal at all.
In this regard, it has been said that the Tessellation geometry technique does not work with the current card driver and has caused crashes in Unigine Heaven, 3DMark and Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker. However, preliminary results show that the Arc A770 performed nearly 170% better than the MTT S80 in the 3DMark06 test.
Well-known Chinese retailer JD has made the card available for $442, and with the poor performance of the graphics card driver, it can be said that some of the GPU’s power is unmeasurable in benchmarks, but as a starting point for a Chinese company, it might be worth it. considered acceptable.
