The very latest rumors of NVIDIA's refreshed GeForce RTX 30 SUPER series are here thanks to kopite7kimi, check them out below:
The new GeForce RTX 30 SUPER series graphics cards will be debuted in the coming months, before we ramp up into the release of NVIDIA's next-gen Ada Lovelace GPU architecture and the new GeForce RTX 40 series GPUs that we've been hearing more and more about.
NVIDIA's new desktop-focused GeForce RTX 30 SUPER series sounds exciting, with a few cards in the lineup: the GeForce RTX 3090 SUPER with 24GB GDDR6X memory, GeForce RTX 3080 SUPER with 12GB of GDDR6X, GeForce RTX 3070 SUPER with 8GB of GDDR6X and finally, the GeForce RTX 3060 SUPER with 12GB of GDDR6 (non-X) memory.
AMD has just launched its RDNA 2-powered Radeon RX 6600 XT graphics card and now we're ramping up into the Radeon RX 6600 non-XT launch.
AMD's new Radeon RX 6600 has already been teased but we're expecting AMD to require all AIB partners to list their samples by last week, on September 15 -- these samples can start shipping on September 29, but they're not allowed to arrive before October 4.
The NDA for the Radeon RX 6600 is reportedly October 13... and the GPU itself will feature 1792 Stream Processors and 28 Compute Units on the kick-ass RDNA 2 graphics architecture, with 8GB of GDDR6 memory joining the mid-range 1080p gaming GPU party.
HP seems to be getting ready to launch its new ENVY 34 All-In-One PC with NVIDIA's unannounced GeForce RTX 3080 SUPER graphics card.
We should expect to see HP launch its new 34-inch AIO system to also rock AMD's unreleased codenamed Rembrandt CPUs in the new Ryzen 6000 series. Both the GeForce RTX 3080 SUPER and AMD Ryzen 6000 series chips should launch at CES 2022 in January.
HP's new system will go on sale next month, so maybe we'll see the first wave of ENVY 34 AIO systems come out with different GPU offerings and then an updated model would launch in early 2022 with the new GeForce RTX 3080 SUPER graphics card. The model launching next month will cost $1999, rocking what should be a beautiful 34-inch 5K Ultra-Wide 21:9 display and an Intel 11th Gen Core i9 processor.
NVIDIA has just released its new GeForce 472.12 WHQL drivers which offer official Windows 11 support, with Microsoft's new OS just weeks away with a release on October 5.
The new drivers give GeForce RTX games support for DirectX 12 Ultimate, as well as enhancing SDR games with Microsoft's built-in Auto HDR, as well as DirectStorage which is all ready to crank your games to the next level on Windows 11.
There's also some tweaks and improvements that are included in the new GeForce 472.12 WHQL drivers, including improvements to Microsoft Teams and NVIDIA Broadcast thanks to the new features in Windows 11. NVIDIA has also taken the time to add 28 games supporting DLSS, which has super-speeded along thanks to DLSS powering Unreal Engine 4 and Unity including DLSS plugins.
NVIDIA's new Ada Lovelace GPU architecture has been teased again, with the very latest rumor on the AD102 GPU is that it will have clock speeds that will hit 2.2GHz, and above.
The new rumors have come from @greymon55 on Twitter, who has said that AD102 will have its GPU frequency above 2.2GHz and that it will arrive on the 5nm node, and have its GDDR6X memory on a 384-bit memory bus. This should give the AD102-powered GeForce RTX 4090 a heck of a lot of GPU horsepower, and memory bandwidth.
We're looking at 18432 CUDA cores on the latest specs rumors for AD102, with 80 TFLOPs+ of compute performance that would blow away the 36 TFLOPs of compute performance that the GA102-based GeForce RTX 3090 is capable of. It won't be cheap, with rumors teasing the AD102-powered GeForce RTX 4090 could cost $2999... but you'll probably be able to Your next TV should be this huge new 85-inch 4K 240Hz... yeah, 240FPS.
XFX has launched its Radeon RX 6900 XT ZERO WB graphics card, which rocks an ultra-premium pre-installed water block from the good folks over at EK.
The new XFX Radeon RX 6900 XT ZERO WB graphics card is one of the very fastest custom Radeon RX 6900 XTs ever made, with 350W+ power available and promised 3GHz+ OC GPU clocks. XFX explains: "The base of the block is CNC machined out of nickel-plated electrolytic copper while the top is CNC machined out of glass-like Acrylic. Sealing is ensured by high-quality EPDM O-Rings. The brass standoffs are already pre-installed and allow for a safe and easy installation procedure".
XFX requires 3 x 8-pin PCIe power connectors on the custom Radeon RX 6900 XT ZERO WB graphics card, we don't know how much power the card can use at its maximum -- but it should be 350W+ while staying cooler than air-cooled RX 6900 XT cards using the same Navi 21 XTXH GPU.
Apple has been using dual Radeon GPU graphics cards in its highest-end Mac Pro systems for a couple of years now, with the latest AMD Radeon PRO W6800X Duo graphics card now benchmarked and man, is it an utter compute beast.
First off, the AMD Radeon PRO W6800W Duo graphics card features 2 x Navi 21 GPUs each with 60 compute units and 3840 stream processors. Each GPU has 32GB of GDDR6 memory for a total of 64GB of GDDR6 memory with 512GB/sec of memory bandwidth.
There's 30.2 TFLOPs of single-precision compute performance, and a whopping 60.4 TFLOPs of half-precision compute performance. There's an onboard Infinity Fabric Link connection that connects the 2 x W6800X GPUs together, pumping 84GB/sec in each direction. Then there's an external Infinity Fabric Link connection that enables 2 x W6800X Duo modules to connect 4 x W6800X GPUs.
I'm a huge fan of NVIDIA's kick-ass DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling) technology, especially in its DLSS 2.0+ form, but now we're going to be seeing more of DLAA (not a typo, that is Deep Learning Anti-Aliasing) which is going to first appear in The Elder Scrolls Online.
Zenimax unveiled the news during their recent ESO live stream, where we found more information out about the upcoming Deadlands zone DLC with base Update 32. The new patch will add DLSS to The Elder Scrolls Online, which will help out lower-end GPUs and those chasing 120FPS+ but what about high-end GPUs that want visual quality?
Where DLSS upscales the resolution, DLAA will offer "incredible anti-aliasing". ESO Creative Director Rich Lambert explains: "While we were working on adding NVIDIA DLSS, we also worked with them on some new tech that we're going to be the first game that's ever done this before. This is debuting their new tech, which is called NVIDIA DLAA. It's the same kind of concept, you won't get a performance boost out of this but what you get is absolutely incredible anti-aliasing. It's unbelievable, it's crazy how good it is".
AMD has caught up considerably against NVIDIA with its new RDNA 2 graphics architecture, with the Radeon RX 6800 XT and Radeon RX 6900 XT both kick-ass graphics cards -- but man-oh-man, the RDNA 3 architecture is going to be delicious.
We have already heard rumors of the RDNA 3 GPU and its flagship Radeon RX 7900 XT powered by the Navi 31 GPU and shaping up to be a beast. Now we have Tom from Moore's Law is Dead teasing that RDNA 3 will "improve performance by 60% at a minimum" with multiple sources telling him that the Radeon RX 7900 XT will be "roughly double" the RX 6900 XT.
Tom does note that people need remember that "theoretical top performance, and real-world performance are not the same thing". Tom continues, adding that "just because the top model performs a certain way in a simulation, does not mean it will in practice once its actually fabricated in silicon, packaged, and requires cooling".
NVIDIA founder and CEO Jensen Huang has made the list on TIME's 100 most influential people of 2021.
Huang explains that it all started with GPUs back in 2003 with the introduction of the GeForce 256, which resulted in me changing my nickname -- and it still is to that day, to anthony256 -- and moved into the world of AI and deep learning where they are the undisputed champion.
This worked for NVIDIA, where they shifted from being known for only making gaming GPUs to the world of supercomputers, AI, deep learning, and more. These advancements are driven by Huang through NVIDIA, and TIME is recognizing that by donning him one of the most influential people of 2021.
