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.

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.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 latest: 320W power, previously rumored at 420W

Anthony Garreffa | Aug 9, 2022 9:33 PM CDT

NVIDIA's next-gen GeForce RTX 4080 graphics card is rumored to use up to 320W of power, which is down considerably from the previously rumored 420W of power.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 latest: 320W power, previously rumored at 420W 516 | TweakTown.com

The news on NVIDIA's next-gen Ada Lovelace GPU-powered GeForce RTX 4080 is from leaker "kopite7kimi" who tweeted: "We can expect RTX 4080 with 320W and RTX 4070 with 285W". The previous rumor for the RTX 4080 is that it would use 420W, so the drop to 320W is a lofty 100W... and that's a great thing.

NVIDIA has an additional 100W of power it can use for some monster overclocking on custom GeForce RTX 4080 graphics cards, something kopite7kimi addressed in a follow-up tweet, by saying: "Not much. The original power consumption limit is too loose which means great overclocking potential".

Intel Arc GPU story goes live, global launch 'later this year'

Anthony Garreffa | Aug 9, 2022 8:20 PM CDT

Intel is continuing its "marketing" for their upcoming Arc GPUs with something that leaker Moore's Law is Dead talked about: the Arc desktop GPU story. There's not much new here, but it's interesting that it's all playing out like this.

Intel Arc GPU story goes live, global launch 'later this year' 01 | TweakTown.com

You can check out the "story" on Intel Arc GPUs on the official Intel website, where we find out that ex-PC Perspective owner and reviewer Ryan Shrout has a major hand in Arc. Shrout seems to be steering the Arc GPU ship, as the Intel website itself says that "Intel Gaming Access met with Ryan Shrout, Senior Director of Graphics and HPC Marketing at Intel".

Intel explains that "when it came to the creation of Intel Arc, Ryan and Intel's engineers had plenty of graphics experience to call on". Interesting, it seems that Ryan was integral to the entire Arc GPU process... so this marketing plan is his, and he's calling the shots.

Intel putters out of the gate with Arc Pro graphics at SIGGRAPH 2022

Rob Squires | Aug 9, 2022 2:27 PM CDT

Intel has officially entered the battlefield of professional graphics cards this week at SIGGRAPH 2022 in Vancouver, Canada. Today, Intel is showing off their upcoming professional discrete card offerings for the first time. They displayed their Arc Pro A40 and Arc Pro A50 video cards in their booth on the exposition floor.

Unfortunately, none of their demonstration systems used in the booth on the show floor are powered by their premier Arc Pro A50 solution. The Intel demo team was extremely proud and enthusiastic about the Arc Pro A40 and its current status.

One takeaway from seeing both cards next to each other is the physical size difference between the Arc Pro A40 and much larger Arc Pro A50 graphics cards. Although the smaller Arc Pro A40 card can fit in a small form factor solution, Intel likely will not be pushing their upcoming higher-end card into their smaller factor offerings in this generation of cards.
