AMD's upcoming Navi 31 is the flagship GPU based on the RDNA 3 graphics architecture, which will reportedly feature 1 x GCD (Graphics Chiplet Die) and 6 x MCDs (Memory Chiplet Dies). Each of them will contain 16MB of Infinity Cache, joined by GDDR6 memory and 64-bit wide PHYs according to the report. Navi 31 is expected to rock out with 48 WGPs (Work Group Processors) and a 384-bit memory bus using GDDR6 memory.

According to this new information, Navi 31 will have a total of 96MB of Infinity Cache, which is actually lower than the current-gen RDNA 2-based Navi 21 GPU which has 128MB of Infinity Cache in total. Angstronomics adds that there will be a cut-down SKU that will be made available, packing 42 WGP and 5 x MCD (80MB of Infinity Cache in total, on a 320-bit memory bus using GDDR6 memory).

Intel should shut down or sell off its GPU division, says analyst

Anthony Garreffa | Aug 11, 2022 11:21 PM CDT

It was barely two weeks ago that I reported from leaks that Intel's Arc desktop GPU is so bad, it could be CANCELLED altogether... But now a major analyst has said that Intel could shut its GPU business because it's bleeding too much money: $3.5 billion so far.

Intel should shut down or sell off its GPU division, says analyst 05 | TweakTown.com

In a new market research report from Jon Peddie Research, the firm estimates that Intel's Accelerated Computing Systems and Graphics (AXG) group has lost $3.5 billion SO FAR. Intel bleeding out $3.5 billion in a division that should be around for decades to come and pull hundreds of billions in that time, is not a good sign, and neither is one of the biggest analysts in the world saying Intel should shut the GPU department down because of it.

JPR founder Jon Peddie said: "So, the rumor mill has been hinting that the party is over and that AXG would be the next group to be jettisoned".

Intel confirms 'Arc graphics does NOT support multi-GPU for gaming'

Anthony Garreffa | Aug 11, 2022 8:17 PM CDT

Exclusive: Intel has confirmed with TweakTown that its upcoming Intel Arc graphics cards will NOT support multi-GPU for gaming, which is not a surprise, but still disappointing to hear.

Intel confirms 'Arc graphics does NOT support multi-GPU for gaming' 01 | TweakTown.com

In the last 36 hours, it's been a whirlwind about Intel supporting multi-GPU for its upcoming Arc GPUs and their oneAPI software. Our own Rob Squires wrote: "software support for an Intel multi-GPU solution is here and almost made its debut at SIGGRAPH 2022".

But then this morning I woke up to emails from an Intel representative clearing it all up, with the Intel representative explaining: "Intel showed a Blender Cycles rendering demo at SIGGRAPH with Intel Arc graphics. Multi-GPU rendering support for Intel Arc and Intel Arc Pro graphics cards through oneAPI is supported starting in Blender 3.3. Intel Arc graphics does not support multi-GPU for gaming".

Intel Arc A750 benched in nearly 50 games against GeForce RTX 3060

Anthony Garreffa | Aug 10, 2022 9:57 PM CDT

Intel is back again with another video detailing its Intel Arc A750 graphics card, which has been benchmarked in close to 50 games with both DX12 and Vulkan API-based games.

In a new video from Intel, we have Ryan Shrout and Tom Peterson benchmarking their lives away with the Arc A750 Limited Edition graphics card in 49 games at both 1080p and 1440p resolutions. Intel versed its own Arc A750 graphics card against NVIDIA's mid-range GeForce RTX 3060, where it beat the RTX 3060 by 3-5% on average.

Ryan explains on the official Intel website: "For games with dedicated benchmarks like Dirt 5 and Hitman 3, we used their benchmark modes. Other games without built-in benchmarks were run using repeatable scenarios, though other testers might come up with different results. And you'll see in our results disclosure that we had two different Intel labs with slightly different configurations contribute to this collection of data, but all measurements for both Intel Arc and competitive products on a per game basis were performed by the same labs. We're confident that the combined data tells the story of the type of performance you can expect when playing some of your favorite modern games".

But now we're hearing fresh news from Moore's Law is Dead, who reached out to his industry sources to find out what is going on with the current situation of warehouses filled with current-gen and even older-gen Ampere and Turing-based graphics cards.

MLID says that his sources have said that AIBs are being helped by NVIDIA to clear their reserve stockpiles of GA102 (GeForce RTX 3090 Ti, GeForce RTX 3090, GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, GeForce RTX 3080 12GB, GeForce RTX 3080). His sources state that this was "the compromise" of the "NVIDIA AIB Revolt" which is when AIBs told NVIDIA to "go pound sand" over their warehouses of older-gen GPUs before the next-gen Ada Lovelace cards arrive.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 latest: up to 2.8GHz GPU clocks, 285W power

Anthony Garreffa | Aug 10, 2022 8:25 PM CDT

NVIDIA's next-gen GeForce RTX 4090 might get all the rumor limelight, but the GeForce RTX 4080 and GeForce RTX 4070 are going to be the real big sellers for gamers, and now we have the very latest rumors to continue driving up that hype train.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 latest: up to 2.8GHz GPU clocks, 285W power 517 | TweakTown.com

The next-gen GeForce RTX 4070 is rumored to have higher GPU clocks than the flagship GeForce RTX 4090, with leaker "kopite7kimi" tweeting last week that the RTX 4070 spec had been updated. NVIDIA's third-most powerful Ada Lovelace GPU in its upcoming GeForce RTX 40 series family will use the PG141-SKU331 GPU, with 7680 CUDA cores, and 12GB of GDDR6X memory clocked at 21Gbps which should provide 504GB/sec of memory bandwidth

The last we heard on the GeForce RTX 4070 and its memory system was that it would have 10GB of GDDR6X at 18Gbps, so we're looking at a decent upgrade: 12GB GDDR6X memory clocked at 21Gbps. Kopite7kimi also says that we should expect GPU boost clocks to be over 2800MHz+ which should result in custom AIB models of the GeForce RTX 4070 to hopefully breach 3000MHz+ which would be a very, very cool thing to see from NVIDIA.

Intel Arc multi-GPU support is almost ready, but not seen at SIGGRAPH

Rob Squires | Aug 10, 2022 6:31 PM CDT

UPDATE: Intel reached out to us to clarify some details, saying "Intel showed a Blender Cycles rendering demo at SIGGRAPH with Intel Arc graphics. Multi-GPU rendering support for Intel Arc and Intel Arc Pro graphics cards through oneAPI is supported starting in Blender 3.3. Intel Arc graphics does not support multi-GPU for gaming."

We learned something quite interesting at SIGGRAPH 2022 today: Intel is finalizing their oneAPi software for multi-GPU support. It turns out that it was only due to the inability to find the right chassis that prevented Intel from showing off a multi-GPU solution on the show floor this week.

Support for a multi-GPU solution could allow Intel to narrow the gap somewhat against NVIDIA and AMD on their entry-level cards for Arc discrete GPUs that are set to debut shortly, as we just reported.

Many outside of Intel have questioned the long-term viability of Intel's discrete graphics solution when compared to current offerings by AMD and NVIDIA.
