NVIDIA has just announced its new A2 Tensor Core, its latest entry-level Ampere-based accelerator using the GA107 GPU which packs 1280 CUDA cores, with 16GB of GDDR6 memory.
The new NVIDIA A2 Tensor Core is quite a bit cut down compared to the A16 Tensor Core, which has 4 x GA107 GPUs compared to the 1 x GA107 GPU on the new A2 Tensor Core. That huge cut down means the TBP (total board power) drops to just 60W, but you can also support it at 40W, meaning you don't need external power.
NVIDIA is clocking the GA107 GPU at 1440MHz base, 1770MHz boost, offering up to 4.5 TFLOPs of single-precision compute power. This means the low-end GeForce RTX 3050 Ti Mobile GPU beats the A2 Tensor Core, with the RTX 3050 Ti Mobile GPU packing up to 7.1 TFLOPs of compute performance.
NVIDIA is expected to unveil its new flagship Ampere laptop GPU at CES 2022 in January, with a new entry onto the Geekbench list for an Intel 12th Gen Core "Alder Lake-S" CPU with an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Laptop GPU.
The new posting includes some new details, with the laptop SKU rocking the GA103S GPU with 58 Compute Units which will translate to 7424 CUDA cores (256 CUDA cores disabled). NVIDIA should offer the new GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Laptop GPU with 8GB or 16GB of GDDR6 memory, depending on the configuration, on a 256-bit memory bus.
We should expect the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti to beat everything on the market obviously, and will find its way into the next-gen flagship laptops of 2022 powered by CPUs like Intel's new Core i9-12900HK mobile processor under the new Alder Lake CPU architecture.
AMD has finally announced its next-generation MI200 HPC GPU codenamed Aldebaran, based on the new CDNA 2 architecture on the 6nm process node.
The first MCM technology is now here in the form of the codename Aldebaran GPU, offering up 2 x GPU chiplets and an enormous 128GB of ultra-fast HBM2e memory. There's an incredible amount of GPU horsepower, memory bandwidth, and so much more going on inside of the AMD Instinct MI200.
Inside, the new Aldebaran GPU has two dies: one secondary, and one primary. Each of the GPU dies has 8 Shader Engines each, for a total of 16 Shader Engines while each of the Shader Engines has 16 Compute Units with full-rate FP64, packed FP32, and 2nd Generation Matrix Engine for FP16 and BF16 operations.
AMD's next-gen RDNA 3 GPU architecture is really going to open up a can of whoop-ass on NVIDIA in 2022, with the MCM-based (multi-chip module) graphics card now rumored with new 3D Infinity Cache technology.
In a new tweet, leaker Greymon55 simply teases "3D IFC" which would imply "3D Infinity Cache". The next-gen RDNA 3 architecture from AMD is expected to have multiple GPU chiplets (MCM technology, or multi-chip module) and should -- at least from this new rumor -- split the Infinity Cache across the GPU chiplets in its MCM design, to 256MB per chip.
AMD's next-gen Navi 31 GPU is expected to have 512MB of Infinity Cache, but now this could be split into a next-gen 3D stacked design through 3D Infinity Cache technology. 3D IFC hasn't been formally announced just yet, so this is rumor territory as usual. AMD is using its 3D V-Cache technology on its next-gen EPYC Milan-X processors, with a huge 768MB of L3 cache expected on the flagship EPYC 7773X (64 cores, 128 threads) processor.
NVIDIA is having to compete with AMD in a totally different way in 2022 and beyond, with AMD moving into the world of MCM (multi-chip module) GPUs with multiple GPU chiplets making for a monster flagship Radeon RX 7900 XT. But NVIDIA won't take the fight laying down.
We've heard rumors that NVIDIA's flagship GeForce RTX 4090 under the new Ada Lovelace GPU architecture will offer twice the performance of the Ampere-based GeForce RTX 3090, but a new rumor from Greymon55 teases: "Double performance, double power consumption, can you accept it?"
Yes, Greymon55... I can accept this.
NVIDIA will have to drive everything to 11 with the new Ada Lovelace GPU architecture, as it will be a monolithic GPU (meaning 1 single large GPU) while AMD's new RDNA 3 GPU architecture can be used in MCM (multiple GPU chiplets on a single card = the new version of multi-GPU) or into monolithic single GPU chiplet designs.
EVGA has lost an entire truckload of GeForce RTX 30 series graphics cards, where a thief has stolen a truck carrying EVGA graphics cards being taken to its distribution center in California.
The truck was filled with EVGA GeForce RTX 30 series graphics cards including GeForce RTX 3060 through to the GeForce RTX 3090, with MSRPs of those cards ranging between $329 and $1960. We're talking about a gigantic amount of the most sought-after graphics cards -- an entire truckload of them -- out in the wild.
EVGA was quick to action, so if you purchase a stolen EVGA GeForce RTX 30 series graphics card you will want to ask for proof of purchase and a receipt -- because if you purchase that card and register for warranty, it won't happen. EVGA will also then investigate that, and want to know how you came to own a stolen graphics card.
AMD CEO and President Dr. Lisa Su herself teased the next-gen AMD Instinct accelerator, as well as next-gen AMD EPYC CPUs that will be unveiled during their Accelerated Data Center Premiere on November 8 at 11AM ET.
In a new tweet, AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su said that she was "looking forward to showcasing" AMD's upcoming EPYC and Instinct accelerators and that the world should join her and AMD on November 8 at 11 AM ET for the big unveiling event. We should see the new AMD Instinct MI250X accelerator, which will be the world's first MCM-based (multi-chip module) GPU with up to 128GB of super-fast HBM2e memory.
AMD's purported Instinct MI250X accelerator will be the first MCM-based GPU, with the codename Aldebaran GPU featuring 2 x Compute Tiles with 110 Compute Units and 128GB of HBM2e memory that should spit out a considerable amount of memory bandwidth per second.
AMD has just announced its new Radeon PRO V620 GPU which uses its new RDNA 2 architecture joined with a large 32GB of GDDR6 memory and will be destined for high-performance GPU acceleration for cloud workloads, immersive AAA gaming, huge 3D workloads and everything in between.
There's some impressive GPU-partitioning abilities, multi-stream hardware-accelerated encoders, and 32GB of GDDR6 gives the AMD Radeon PRO V620 GPU the ability to scale to multiple graphics users. This means that companies can save money on graphics acceleration for huge workloads.
Jeff Connell, corporate vice president, Visual and Cloud Gaming, AMD said: "AMD is bringing high-performance AAA gaming experience to the cloud with the introduction of the AMD Radeon PRO V620. We're seeing adoption of gaming in the cloud from customers around the world, taking advantage of the latest virtualization features delivering efficient and low latency content streaming to multiple simultaneous users. AMD Radeon PRO V620 is yet another proof point of AMD's excellence in gaming - from the PC to the console and now to the cloud".
AMD has just released its new Radeon Adrenalin 21.11.1 drivers which have support for the just-to-be released Call of Duty: Vanguard, and Forza Horizon 5.
The new Radeon Adrenalin 21.11.1 drivers provide up to 23% more performance in Forza Horizon 5 at 4K Extreme Settings on the Radeon RX 6800 XT graphics card over the previous software driver version 21.10.2. There's some fixed issues with the display corruption on the Samsung Odyssey G9 C49G95T gaming monitor at 5120 x 1440 @ 240Hz, now resolved.
Another issue with Call of Duty: Warzone with visual artifacts when moving the mouse cursor in the in-game menu, is now fixed in the new Radeon Adrenalin 21.11.1 drivers. You can download these new drivers for both Windows 10 and Windows 11, depending on which operating system you're using now that Microsoft's new OS is in the wild.
Just as Intel is launching its new 12th Gen Core "Alder Lake" CPUs and next-gen Z690 chipset which delivers DDR5 memory and PCIe 5.0 connectivity for the first time, Micron has announced new GDDR6 16Gbps memory for AMD Radeon RX 6000 series GPUs.
In a new press release, Micron announced that its high-performance 16Gb/16Gbps GDDR6 memory is now available to RDNA 2-based Radeon RX 6000 series graphics cards. Micron uses its advanced 1z process technology for its 16Gbps GDDR6 memory, offering up to 512GB/sec of memory bandwidth.
But there's something definitely worth pointing out here: this is nothing new. There's nothing new, or upgraded coming from AMD with new 16Gbps GDDR6-based memory from Micron on a new Radeon RX 6000 series graphics card. Micron is just announcing that its 16Gbps GDDR6 memory is now available to AMD for its Radeon RX 6000 series cards.
