NVIDIA's next-gen GeForce RTX 40 series GPU: 'early Q3' launch teased

Anthony Garreffa | Sun, May 15 2022 7:45 PM CDT

NVIDIA's next-gen GeForce RTX 40 series GPUs could be here sooner rather than later, with leaker "kopite7kimi" teasing a "Q3 early" release... meaning July/August (which would be early Q3) with September being the end of Q3.

I was personally in Cologne, Germany during Gamescom 2018 when NVIDIA announced its Turing GPU architecture and new GeForce RTX 30 series GPUs, back in September 2018. This would be earlier than regular scheduled releases from NVIDIA, but we are in a Bizarro GPU world... and next-gen GPUs would be welcomed right now.

NVIDIA would be out of the gate ahead of AMD and its upcoming RDNA 3 architecture and new MCD-based Navi 31 GPU. MCD being a multi-chip die, with a chiplet-based GPU design compared to NVIDIA's monolithic GPU design expected with Ada Lovelace and the new flagship AD102 GPU that should power the GeForce RTX 4090 Ti and GeForce RTX 4090 graphics cards.

AMD Instinct MI300: first-gen exascale APU with Zen 4 CPU + CDNA 3 GPU

Anthony Garreffa | Fri, May 13 2022 9:00 PM CDT

AMD will be unleashing its next-gen Instinct MI300 product family in the future, the first CDNA 3-based product that will utilize 3D stacking technology.

3D stacking technology will allow AMD to use CPU and GPU dies in different configurations for customers of AMD, and now we have some new leaks making things a little clearer. From a leaked slide from a purported internal presentation on AMD's upcoming Instinct MI300, AMD says the Instinct MI300 is a "first generation Instinct APU".

AdoredTV details the slides (you should be able to tell their AdoredTV's slides, I don't know if it's obvious enough or not) that one of the CPU configurations -- leaker Tom @ Moore's Law is Dead said that recently, more on that below -- with Zen 4-based CPU cores, and CDNA 3-based GPU cores.

Intel XeSS launches on May 20, while GPUs are still MANY months away

Anthony Garreffa | Fri, May 13 2022 8:19 PM CDT

Update: More disappointment, as Koch Media PR reached out to clarify that "Intel XeSS support won't actually be available until some time in the Summer". An Intel representative also alerted my eyes to this story, so there's also Intel weight behind it, too.

Intel doesn't have their Arc Alchemist GPU on the market, with multiple delays and drama going on behind the scenes... but don't worry: Intel XeSS upscaling technology will launch in a week, on May 20.

The new Intel XeSS upscaling technology will officially launch alongside action RPG "Dolmen" that most people won't play, and will support all three super-sampling technologies: AMD FSR (1.0), NVIDIA DLSS, and Intel XeSS. There will be a day one update for Dolmen that provides it with Intel XeSS support, making it the first game in history to support Intel XeSS.

AMD just introduced its latest FSR 2.0 technology, and while it isn't supported by a heap of games yet, it will over time just like NVIDIA DLSS. Intel will be using one unified API for game developers to use, with multiple acceleration techniques being used.

AMD teases free game bundle, without saying which games: but why?

Anthony Garreffa | Thu, May 12 2022 9:00 PM CDT

The price of GPUs have been dropping massively in the last few weeks, which has been an awesome thing for gamers (a much-needed relief in the Bizarro world of GPU pricing). But it's forced AMD to do something kinda foolish...

AMD teases free game bundle, without saying which games: but why? 06 | TweakTown.com

AMD has pre-announced its new "Raise the Game" bundle, which it even labels as "Upcoming Radeon Raise the Game Bundle" as it's not here yet. AMD wants you to "stay tuned" as the new Raise the Game Bundle activsion is "coming soon". Alrighty... so which free games do Radeon gamers get?

Well, we don't know yet... because AMD hasn't said so. The company has listed the eligible AMD products (which I've got a list of below). So why is the game bundle, rushed, now? GPU prices have been dropping for a while, forcing AMD's hand here: all Radeon purchases between May 10 and August 13 get the free games, but they don't know what games they'll get yet.

NVIDIA teases Computex 2022 keynote for May 23, don't expect a new GPU

Anthony Garreffa | Thu, May 12 2022 7:23 PM CDT

NVIDIA has announced its Computex 2022 keynote, penciled in for May 23 @ 8-9PM PDT with 6 speakers getting ready to talk your ear off.

We are to expect Ian Buck (Vice President of Accelerated Computing), Brian Kelleher (Senior Vice President, Hardware Engineering), Ying Yin Shih (Director of Product Management, Accelerated Computing), Michael Kagan (Chief Technology Officer), Deepu Talla (Vice President of Embedded and Edge Computing) and Jeff Fisher (Senior Vice President of GeForce).

I wouldn't be expecting any new GPU announcements, but rather NVIDIA will most likely highlight everything the company has achieved in the last 6 months (new GPUs including the delayed GeForce RTX 3090 Ti, as well as their next-gen Hopper GPU architecture). The last time we saw Jeff was at CES 2022 earlier this year, when he announced the new GeForce RTX 3090 Ti graphics card.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 latest spec rumor: 24GB GDDR6X @ 21Gbps, 600W+

Anthony Garreffa | Wed, May 11 2022 8:07 PM CDT

NVIDIA's new GeForce RTX 4090 is once again in the headlines, with new leaks on the GPU teasing that the next-gen AD102-300 GPU will have 24GB of GDDR6X memory @ 21Gbps.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 latest spec rumor: 24GB GDDR6X @ 21Gbps, 600W+ 525 | TweakTown.com

In new leaks from "kopite7kimi" we're being told that the GeForce RTX 4090 will use the same AD102 GPU as the higher-end GeForce RTX 4090 Ti, but will have some things cut down of course. Even in its cut down form, AD102 will still offer a 71% increase in CUDA core count over GA102 (the GPU that powers the RTX 3080 Ti, RTX 3090, RTX 3090 Ti).

kopite7kimi says that the RTX 4090 that is getting more leaked details is the "PG137/139-SKU330" which uses the "AD102-300" GPU, has 24GB of GDDR6X memory at 21Gbps, and of course: 600W of power. But the new RTX 4090 isn't the only GPU that the leaker is providing more details on, but also the upcoming RTX 4070, too.

Intel teases Arctic Sound M GPU for data center: ACM-G10 GPU + 150W

Anthony Garreffa | Tue, May 10 2022 9:40 PM CDT

Intel has detailed its Arctic Sound M data center GPU, announcing that it will be available in Q3 2022 -- but no one in their right mind would be trusting their GPU shipment dates after all their Arc GPU delays -- still, let's get this Arctic Sound M GPU show on the road.

There are two different designs of the Arctic Sound M, the first is the flagship based on a single ACM-G10 GPU and a 150W design. The second card is packing not one but two ACM-G11 GPUs and has a smaller 75W TDP, but it's aimed at high-density multi-purpose workloads. Intel's new Arctic Sound M are "super flexible data center GPUs aimed at cloud gaming, media processing and delivery, virtual desktop infrastructure, and inference.

Arctic Sound GPUs can reportedly handle 30+ 1080p streams, 40+ game streams, up to 62 Virtualized Functions, and up to 150 AI TOPs. Intel says its new Arctic Sound M GPUs will have the latest technologies like AV1 HW Encode/Decode, and XMX AI-Accelerators built-in.

The new ASRock Radeon RX 6950 XT OC Formula graphics card has a GPU Boost CLock of up to 2495MHz, but we'll see it breach 2800MHz and I'm sure 3000MHz+ with professional overclockers and LN2 cooling. ASRock says that its newly designed Striped Ring Fan "further enhances the airflow performance with its striped fan blades and ring structure".

Underneath we have AMD's latest Navi 21 KXTX GPU, upgraded 16GB of GDDR6 memory that's clocked at 18Gbps (up from 16Gbps) while ASRock is including some built-in ARGB LED lighting that syncs with ASRock motherboards through Polychrome SYNC support.
