Sony's upgraded PS5 Pro: compared to mid-range Radeon RX 7700 XT GPU

Anthony Garreffa | Wed, May 25 2022 9:29 PM CDT

TCL has been busy leaking out Sony and Microsoft's upgraded current-gen consoles, which we've already heard rumors about, but now we're finding out where the GPU performance might land when compared to the PC.

Polish website PPE attended a press event that TCL held recently, where it talked about its predictions for the upgraded consoles. TCL talked about the "new Xbox Series S/X" and "PS5 Pro" consoles, predicting that we'll see them push out 4K @ 60-120FPS "render" while they'll have 4K to 8K @ 60-120FPS "output".

More interestingly, TCL predicts that the upgraded consoles will have GPU power comparable to AMD's upcoming Navi 33-based Radeon RX 7700 XT graphics card. Out of context, this sounds amazing... but we did hear last month that the Radeon RX 7700 XT would beat the Radeon RX 6900 XT. So, what does this mean?

NVIDIA's new liquid-cooled A100 PCIe accelerator looks SO good

Anthony Garreffa | Sun, May 22 2022 5:37 PM CDT

NVIDIA is reportedly gearing up to unveil a new version of its A100 Tensor Core GPUs, check it out:

NVIDIA's new liquid-cooled A100 PCIe accelerator looks SO good 01 | TweakTown.com

The new NVIDIA A100 PCIe "Ampere" accelerator has been updated with a liquid-cooled variant, and man it looks so damn good. NVIDIA is making this card, using a beautiful design that sees the tubing connectors on the rear, sitting directly to the left of the single 8-pin PCIe power connector.

A liquid-cooled A100 accelerator isn't exactly new, as you could buy the passively cooled dual-slot version and manually replace the cooler... but that is a lot of work. Professionals aren't going to do that, they're going to want to buy it made like this... and install it into their system. This is a work of art.

AIBs 'preparing 4.5-slot coolers' for an 'undisclosed' NVIDIA GPU

Anthony Garreffa | Thu, May 19 2022 10:21 PM CDT

NVIDIA's next-gen GeForce RTX 40 series GPUs will be released this year, with the mosnter new flagship GeForce RTX 4090 / RTX 4090 Ti shaping up to be quite the gigantic beast.

In recent leaks, we've seen the gargantuan cooling system that the purported GeForce RTX 4090 Ti Founders Edition would use: what looks like a 4-slot cooler. But in his latest video, Tom @ Moore's Law is Dead said that he's been talking with AIBs who said:

"AIBs are preparing 4.5-slot coolers right now for some undisclosed NVIDIA product. Already case-makers are adjusting their designs to support these monsters".

AMD Navi 31 GPU: new rumors tease 24GB GDDR6 on 384-bit memory bus

Anthony Garreffa | Wed, May 18 2022 8:04 AM CDT

AMD's next-gen RDNA 3 graphics architecture will be led by the new Navi 31 GPU, which has changed specifications according to the very, very latest leaks.

Navi 31 is now reportedly packing a wider 384-bit memory bus, up from the 256-bit memory bus from previous rumors... while also packing 24GB of GDDR6. Navi 31 has been mentioned with a 256-bit memory bus + 32GB GDDR6 before, so this new SKU is interesting.

The newer Navi 31 rumored GPU specs would see the 384-bit memory bus not just increasing overall memory bandwidth over a 256-bit memory bus, but AMD would require fewer memory modules at the same time. This means that AMD and its AIB partners can make their Navi 31-based offerings cheaper, and require less cooling (which also helps with costs).

ASUS: crypto GPU demand is slowing down, gaming demand is still strong

Anthony Garreffa | Tue, May 17 2022 9:38 PM CDT

ASUS has revealed some interesting information in their recent earnings report, with ASUS Co-CEO Sy Hsu explaining GPU demand for crypto miners is dying, while prices could stabilize soon, but maybe not.

ASUS: crypto GPU demand is slowing down, gaming demand is still strong 511 | TweakTown.com

ASUS's Co-CEO, Sy Hsu explained: "Because the demand for cryptocurrency mining on GPU shipments has been slowly coming down, the demand for graphics cards across the market is normalizing. Because the demand from cryptocurrency is disappearing, it's made us wonder if the pricing for GPUs will also normalize. In reality, the demand for gaming is still strong, so we still don't think we can necessarily meet all of the demand".

We've seen GPU prices skyrocketing over the last year or so, where prices were hitting 150-300% of their regular MSRP... but now, now they're floating back down to reality. This isn't just for one company, but rather both -- AMD and NVIDIA graphics cards are seeing most retailers and e-tailers pricing Radeon and GeForce GPUs at 5-10% above MSRP on average.

AMD Radeon RX 7950 XT: Navi 31 GPU rumored codename is 'Plum Bonito'

Anthony Garreffa | Tue, May 17 2022 9:02 PM CDT

AMD's next-gen RDNA 3 architecture will debut later this year, with the introduction of the flagship Navi 31 GPU that we're now hearing is codenamed "Plum Bonito".

The new codename Plum Bonito GPU is the Navi 31 ASIC board according to leaker "Kepler", who recently said that the Navi 31-based purported Radeon RX 7950 XT graphics card will arrive on the next-gen PCIe 5.0 interface. We can also see that a Navi 31 board is reportedly called "Gemini" which could be a dual-GPU version of Navi 31 (workstation-class GPU possibly).

But if you look close, the next-next-gen Navi 41 GPU was teased in very early form as "gfx1200". AMD's current-gen Radeon RX 6000 series graphics cards are based on the RDNA 2 GPU architecture, while next-gen Radeon RX 7000 series graphics cards will be powered by the RDNA 3 GPU architecture. After that, we have the Radeon RX 8000 series powered by RDNA 4... of which we're now being teased.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 Ti Founders Edition leaked: cooler is HUUUUGE

Anthony Garreffa | Tue, May 17 2022 7:07 PM CDT

We have been hearing plenty about NVIDIA's next-gen Ada Lovelace GPU-powered GeForce RTX 4090, but now it's time for the GeForce RTX 4090 Ti -- and more specifically -- NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce RTX 4090 Ti Founders Edition graphics card.

In some of the latest rounds of rumors, we've been hearing whispers that NVIDIA would unleash the GeForce RTX 40 series GPUs sooner rather than later -- a possibly mid-July release -- meaning we're just months away. NVIDIA looks to be providing some rather impressive cooling array to the RTX 40 series Founders Edition GPUs so that they can handle the 450W to 600W of power we're also hearing about.

NVIDIA's new GeForce RTX 4090 Ti (this name could change) Founders Edition graphics card has three different parts: first up we have the silver-themed metal skeleton that goes around the heat sink for that beautiful finish. You can see the nice little "RTX 4090 Ti" logo there, too.

Intel will have two models of its Arctic Sound-M GPUs with 150W and 75W power, with the Arctic Sound-M in 150W form packing a single GPU, the Arctic Sound-M in dual-GPU form using 75W. The dual-GPU model has 75W TDP and is a smaller half-height, low-profile form factor design.

The new GPU photos that STH snapped are from the Intel Vision conference for developers, investors, and media. Intel had multiple SKUs of its Arctic Sound GPUs on the floor, including models that didn't have an EPS power connector, with STH also noting that many components were missing on some of the cards.
