China is stepping up in the GPU department with Jingjia Micro announcing two new GPUs made in China, the first domestically-produced GPU out of the country and it's as fast as NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1080.

Not only that, but the new Jingjia Micro JM9 Serries GPU is as fast as the Pascal-based NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 and the Vega-based AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 graphics cards. Jingjia Micro has two chips in its series, the entry-level "JM9231" which has GTX 1050 levels of performance, while the "JM9271" has performance closer to the GTX 1080.

Jingjia Micro has now taped out its first JM9 Series GPU -- after what should've been a launch in 2020 becomes a launch in Q3 2021 -- but hey, it's nearly here. There's still a bunch of things the GPU needs to go through -- with no test work, mass production, or external sales just yet -- that could take another year. China can say whatever it wants, I want to see it in action -- not just some PR.

MyDrivers reports: "On September 14 , Jingjiawei, a domestic GPU chip company, issued an announcement stating that the company's new-generation graphics processing chip has completed the tape out and packaging phases. The product has not yet completed the test work, and has not yet formed mass production and external sales, and will not affect the company. The current performance has a greater impact, and the degree of impact on the company's future performance is still unpredictable".

We are expecting around 8 TFLOPs of compute power, close to the 8.9 TFLOPs out of the GeForce GTX 1080. Jingjia will be tapping the newer PCIe 4.0 standard, and will offer 16GB of HBM memory with 512GB/sec of memory bandwidth. The GPU will reportedly be clocked at around 1800MHz, while we're looking at a 200W TDP.

Pretty meh considering a mid-range GPU from the Ampere or RDNA 2 architectures would blow that away.
