If you were marking on your calendar for when you couldn't buy the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti in April 2021 because there's probably going to be 100 available worldwide -- well, strike that out -- the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is reportedly coming in May instead.
According to sources of ITHome: "NVIDIA internally issued a new announcement that the release time of the next-generation RTX30 series model. The RTX 3080Ti 12G has been delayed again, and it is now expected to be released around mid-May".
But then in the last 48 hours or so I've heard from my sources that GPU yields on the new RTX 3080 Ti are very low, with some supply chain issues causing more problems for NVIDIA and its new GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 30 series SUPER releases. NVIDIA had originally planned its GeForce RTX 3080 Ti for late last year, with December 2020 being the plan -- but low GPU yields and ABF substrate shortages are causing major headaches not only for NVIDIA but AMD.
PowerColor leaks are thick and heavy for Big Navi, with a new leak on the Radeon RX 6700 -- the non-XT model -- that will reportedly pack 6GB. At least the teased PowerColor Radeon RX 6700 Fighter graphics card will, as you can check it out below:
TechPowerUp is reporting that PowerColor accidentally sent over press materials on the Radeon RX 6700 Fighter graphics card before they were meant to and now we get to enjoy this leak. The new PowerColor Radeon RX 6700 Fighter graphics card is an entry-level graphics card that the company sells with it packing a cut-down Navi 22 GPU and 6GB of GDDR6.
The higher-end Radeon RX 6700 XT rolls out with 12GB of GDDR6 memory, with previous leaks on the Radeon RX 6700 teasing 12GB of RAM. So it'll be interesting to see where we go from here and whether AMD could release two variants of the Radeon RX 6700: one with 6GB of GDDR6 and another with 12GB of GDDR6 memory.
NVIDIA is reportedly working on a GeForce RTX 3070 Ti graphics card, with VideoCardz sources sharing "the latest information" that they have on the purported GeForce RTX 3070 Ti.
According to their AIB sources we're looking at NVIDIA using the Ampere GA104-400 GPU for the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti graphics card, with 6144 CUDA cores and 8GB of GDDR6X memory. We are told to expect the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti on shelves -- I don't think there'll be enough numbers for them to actually touch the shelves -- by the end of May.
For comparison, the GeForce RTX 3070 uses the GA104-300 GPU with 5888 CUDA cores and 8GB of GDDR6 (non-X) memory @ 14Gbps on a 256-bit memory bus with up to 448GB/sec of memory bandwidth. We should expect a decent upgrade in memory bandwidth thanks to the use of GDDR6X memory.
NVIDIA's much-touted GeForce RTX 3080 Ti has been teased again, this time with a tweaked GPU, less VRAM, and a new mid-April release date.
The new GeForce RTX 3080 Ti rumor is coming from VideoCardz that reports "NVIDIA has recently distributed the first embargo information to board partners in regard to GeForce RTX 3080 Ti. The latest information features a different GPU variant compared to previous leaks. The PG132 SKU 18 board design, also known as RTX 3080 Ti would feature GA102-225 GPU".
This new GA102-225 GPU reportedly has the same 10240 CUDA cores as the previously rumored GA102-250 GPU, with the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti being pegged to have 12GB of GDDR6X memory. For comparison, the GeForce RTX 3080 has 10GB of GDDR6X and the flagship GeForce RTX 3090 has 24GB of GDDR6X memory.
But what about the GPU clocks? Leaker kopite7kimi reports that the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti will have GPU clocks of around 1665MHz, compared to the GeForce RTX 3090 clocks of around 1695MHz. Not bad... now we need to know more about it... another GPU you won't be able to buy.
AMD has just released their new Radeon Adrenalin 2020 21.3.1 BETA drivers, which not only include support for the new Navi 23-based Radeon RX 6700 XT graphics cards but there's a new built-in Performance Tuning Stress Test feature.
The new drivers also have support for the just-released DOOM Eternal: The Ancient Gods - Part Two, which will go well with that new Radeon RX 6700 XT (if you can find it). There are a bunch of fixed issued as there always is with new drivers, across the board between Radeon Software using too much CPU resources, to VR improvements, and everything in between.
It looks like Intel will be kicking off some of the marketing hype for its upcoming Xe-HPG gaming graphics card on March 26, with a teased Intel Xe HPG Scavenger Hunt.
Intel's upcoming Xe HPG Scavenger Hunt will reportedly kick off at March 26, 2021 @ 9AM PST -- with 'duckofdeath' on Wccftech noticing the cryptic message hidden inside of the Intel Xe-HPG teaser video. Hell, it takes place just 3 days after Intel's freshly-minted CE Pat Gelsinger hosts a webcast.
We should expect that more teases and clues will be revealed before, and during the Intel Xe HPG Scavenger Hunt, so I'm sure there will be much more to be revealed in the coming week before the Intel Xe HPG Scavenger Hunt begins
AMD has only just unleashed the Radeon RX 6700 XT and its new Navi 22 GPU with 12GB of GDDR6 memory, but now leaks are beginning on the new Navi 23 GPU with 8GB of GDDR6.
The new rumors are coming from leaker KittyYYuko (who used to be, or the leaker previously known as KittyCorgi) has posted up some specs on the purported Navi 23-based RDNA 2 offering. It will be for "premium 1080p gaming" just like the Navi 22-based Radeon RX 6700 XT is for premium 1440p gaming.
AMD's new Navi 22-based GPU would have 32 Compute Units (2048 Stream Processors), come in at around 236mm2, have 64MB of Infinity Cache (96MB on Radeon RX 6700 XT, 128MB on the Radeon RX 6800, RX 6800 XT, and RX 6900 XT graphics cards), while it will have 8GB of GDDR6 on a 128-bit memory bus clocked at the speedy 16Gbps bandwidth.
MSI has just silently launched two new custom GeForce RTX 30 series graphics cards, with the ninja introduction of the MSI GeForce RTX 3080 SUPRIM SE and MSI GeForce RTX 3070 SUPRIM SE graphics cards.
What's the difference between the newly-released SUPRIM SE and the previous SUPRIM X graphics cards from MSI? From a design perspective they seem virtually identical, meanwhile internally the GPU on both of these SUPRIM SE offerings are lower than the full-speed SUPRIM X beast.
MSI's previous GeForce RTX 3080 SUPRIM X graphics card had boost GPU clocks of between 1905-1920MHz on a 370W TDP with 3 x 8-pin PCIe power connectors. The new MSI GeForce RTX 3080 SUPRIM SE (no X) has 1815-1830MHz boost GPU clocks with the same 370W TDP and same 3 x 8-pin PCIe power connector.
AMD has finally confirmed that we will have RDNA 2-powered PC graphics cards with their NVIDIA DLSS competitor sometime this year, with FidelityFX Super Resolution or FSR.
During a recent chat with the lads at PC World, CVP & GM at AMD Radeon, Scott Herkelman, explained: "It's progressing very well internally in our lab, but it's our commitment to the gaming community that it needs to be open that it needs to work across all things and game developers need to adopt it. Even though it's progressing well, we still have more work to do and not only internally but with our game developer partners".
He continued: "We want to launch it this year. We believe we can do that this year, but at the same time we a lot more work ahead of us. We need to make sure the image quality is there. We need to make sure it can scale from different resolutions. And at the same time that our game developers are happy with what we are producing".
Intel's new Xe-HPG GPU has been spotted with their next-gen Alder Lake-S CPU, with the Xe-HPG teamed with a 16-core, 24-thread CPU that succeeds the just-revealed Rocket Lake-S 11th Gen Core CPUs.
The new Xe-HPG graphics card we're looking at is the GPU codenamed DG2-512EU, which in this form packs 512 Execution Units, with a maximum GPU clock of 1.8GHz and 12.6GB of RAM -- we should see DG2 launch with 16GB of RAM but this is just the VRAM count with other shared system resources.
Intel seems to be testing out its Xe-HPG graphics card with its next-gen Alder Lake-S processor, which features 16 cores and 24 threads... yes, not the traditional 8 cores and 16 threads or 16 cores and 32 threads (which it normally is). This CPU has a max clock of 4.6GHz, which will either be for the high-efficiency (small) cores or the high-performance (big) cores and I'm leaning (hoping) on the latter.
