NVIDIA CEO says future-gen DLSS 10 will have a neural rendering system, AI generating pixels

Anthony Garreffa | Mar 24, 2024 7:02 PM CDT

NVIDIA announced its next-generation Blackwell GPU architecture and the world's fastest AI GPU, the Blackwell B200 AI GPU, last week at GTC 2024 (GPU Technology Conference). CEO Jensen Huang said it'll be around 10 years before something like DLSS 10 renders every frame using AI.

NVIDIA CEO says future-gen DLSS 10 will have a neural rendering system, AI generating pixels

NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang predicted the future of AI in gaming, saying that in under 10 years we will see AI generating every single pixel in every game, all in real-time. Jensen said: "I think with almost, almost everything in technology, the S curve is not longer than a decade once it becomes true, once it becomes practical and better. And, of course, ChatGPT is not only practical; in most cases, it's better. I think it's less than ten years away".

Jensen continued: "In ten year's time, you're at the other end of that S curve. In five years from now, you're probably right in the middle where everything is changing in real-time, and everybody's going, 'Oh, look at that, this is happening.' And so you just got to decide, are we two years into it, into that ten years? Probably. We're probably already two years into it. And so I would say that within the next five to ten years, somewhere in between, it's largely the case".

SK hynix GDDR7 memory spotted at NVIDIA GTC 2024: 16-24Gb, up to 40Gbps, up to 160GB/sec

Anthony Garreffa | Mar 21, 2024 6:03 PM CDT

Samsung wasn't the only one showing off next-gen GDDR7 memory chips at NVIDIA's GPU Technology Conference (GTC) 2024 event, with SK hynix also having some GDDR7 on the show floor. Check it out:

SK hynix GDDR7 memory spotted at NVIDIA GTC 2024: 16-24Gb, up to 40Gbps, up to 160GB/sec

Our friends over at HardwareLuxx were on the show floor at NVIDIA GTC 2024, spotting SK hynix's new GDDR7 memory modules that offer up to 40Gbps per pin for up to 160GB/sec memory bandwidth per module. We've heard and reported that GDDR7 memory will start its life at 28Gbps on NVIDIA's next-gen GeForce RTX 50 series GPUs, with refreshes along the way packing higher-speed GDDR7 modules.

Samsung has claimed it is working on 37Gbps GDDR7 memory while also showing off next-gen 32Gbps and 28Gbps GDDR7 memory modules at NVIDIA GTC 2024. We should expect NVIDIA to roll out GeForce RTX 50 series graphics cards with 28Gbps GDDR7 memory, but I would lean more towards 32Gbps GDDR7 to give them a huge performance leap over the GDDR6X-based flagship GeForce RTX 4090.

NVIDIA rumored to prep RTX 4070, 4060 Ti and 4060 GPU refreshes, but don't get excited for them

Darren Allan | Mar 21, 2024 11:40 AM CDT

NVIDIA may have new spins on its RTX 4070, 4060 Ti and 4060 graphics cards inbound, but if so, let's make it clear from the outset that these won't be anything interesting.

NVIDIA rumored to prep RTX 4070, 4060 Ti and 4060 GPU refreshes, but don't get excited for them

A tweet has surfaced from regular leaker MEGAsizeGPU claiming some new versions are planned by NVIDIA, but before you begin imagining some kind of 4060 Super (or indeed 4060 Ti Super), these graphics cards will keep the exact same specifications as the existing versions (if they're anything at all - add salt as ever).

So, what's the point of that? Well, they will have a different chip, with the changes being as follows:

New Intel Arc brings new game support and more massive 'up to 174%' performance boosts

Kosta Andreadis | Mar 21, 2024 9:35 AM CDT

With Intel's Arc graphics now covering discrete GPUs like the Arc A750 and recent Arc A580 and integrated graphics in the new Intel Core Ultra series of mobile processors, the diligent team over at Team Blue continues to improve driver support for new games and older titles.

New Intel Arc brings new game support and more massive 'up to 174%' performance boosts

Over the past year, we've seen significant overhauls to DirectX 12 and DirectX 11 performance, with per-game optimizations bringing some game-changing improvements. The latest Intel Game On Graphics Driver release for Arc Graphics is no different, with new game support for Dragon's Dogma 2, Horizon Forbidden West, and Diablo IV's upcoming ray-tracing update; a bunch of older titles are also getting "up to 174% average FPS uplift."

Those massive performance increases are limited to a handful of titles, like Detroit: Become Human (Vulkan) and Granblue Fantasy: Relink (DX11). Still, a 36% performance bump to God of War running on a desktop Arc GPU and a 17% performance bump running on an Intel Core Ultra with built-in Arc are great to see.

AMD Software: Adrenalin Edition 24.3.1 is here with new game support and several fixes

Kosta Andreadis | Mar 21, 2024 6:28 AM CDT

AMD has released AMD Software: Adrenalin Edition 24.3.1 for Radeon GPU owners, and the latest driver update from Team Red is a big one - not only in terms of new game support but also in the number of 'Fixed Issues.'

AMD Software: Adrenalin Edition 24.3.1 is here with new game support and several fixes

First, the Adrenalin Edition 24.3.1 adds day-one support to the two biggest PC game releases of the week (and month), with Capcom's Dragon's Dogma 2 and Sony's Horizon Forbidden West Complete Edition getting some Radeon love. Outpost: Infinity Siege, the third game listed in the release notes, is more of an unknown. It's described as an "FPS, Base Building, Tower Defense" game, launching next week on Steam.

Onto the fixed issues, high-end Radeon RX 7900 Series GPU owners playing the smash-hit Helldivers 2 will be pleased to know that Adrenalin Edition 24.3.1 resolves and improves driver timeout issues and crashes when playing the game. Another win for all Radeon owners is AMD fixing micro stutter issues with AMD Fluid Motion Frames, improving the driver-based Frame Generation solution that's part of HYPR-RX.

NVIDIA's next-gen Vera Rubin AI GPU rumored for mid-2025, compete with AMD Instinct MI400X

Anthony Garreffa | Mar 20, 2024 11:16 PM CDT

NVIDIA only just announced and detailed its new Blackwell GPU architecture and new B200 AI GPU at GTC 2024 this week, but now we're hearing fresh rumors on the next-gen Vera Rubin GPU, which could be released in the first half of 2025.

NVIDIA's next-gen Vera Rubin AI GPU rumored for mid-2025, compete with AMD Instinct MI400X

The news is coming from sources close to Moore's Law is Dead, with the leaker saying one of his sources said that AMD is doing everything possible to get its next-gen Instinct MI400X out in the wild, which would arrive in Q1 2025 "at the earliest". NVIDIA doesn't want to stop the AI GPU domination, so don't think Blackwell is where it stops... as Vera Rubin dropping in 2025 would be absolutely insane.

Blackwell is said to be the GPU architecture for both the AI and data center GPUs from NVIDIA and its upcoming next-gen GeForce RTX 50 series graphics cards. Vera Rubin will succeed Blackwell, but will only be for the AI GPU market like Hopper and Volta are. Vera Rubin won't be for gamers, so we could expect NVIDIA to reveal its next-gen Vera Rubin GPU architecture at its GTC 2025 event.

AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT modded: 6GB to 16GB, memory bus bumped to 256-bit

Anthony Garreffa | Mar 20, 2024 5:31 PM CDT

AMD shipped its Radeon RX 5600 XT graphics card with 6GB of memory, but now YouTuber and modder Paulo Gnomes has more than doubled the memory capacity from 6GB to an incredible 16GB.

AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT modded: 6GB to 16GB, memory bus bumped to 256-bit

Not only that, but the modder also increased the stock 192-bit memory bus up to a higher 256-bit memory bus, which, when overclocked, the PowerColor Radeon RX 5600 XT Red Devil graphics card that was modded was up to 29% faster than its stock 192-bit memory bus and stock 6GB of GDDR6.

The modder had to modify the BIOS on the Radeon RX 5600 XT Red Devil graphics card, adjusting the right hexadecimal code to tell the GPU to unlock the additional memory controllers inside of the Navi 10 GPU die.

Intel's Arc Graphics platform, which covers discrete desktop GPUs like the Intel Arc A750 and mobile chips like the new Intel Core Ultra 155H with Intel Arc built-in, is designed for modern gamers and creators - leveraging the latest PC tech. For creators, Intel Arc offers hardware video encoding and decoding covering AVC, HEVC, and AV1.

According to Intel, the Arc A750 has faster video transcoding than the GeForce RTX 4060

This is all handled by Arc's Intel Xe Media Engine. In a new blog post (and video), Intel explains precisely what encoding and decoding video is about while presenting benchmarks for its Arc hardware - comparing performance to competing products. The post doubles as an excellent primer for learning about video compression and decompression while showcasing why a GPU-based hardware solution is essential in 2024.

In its head-to-head transcoding comparisons, we see the Intel Arc A750 versus the GeForce RTX 4060 and the Intel Core Ultra 155H versus the AMD Ryzen 7 PRO 7840U. And in a lot of workloads, Arc pulls ahead.

HBM supply growth estimated at 260% in 2024, consumes 14% of the DRAM industry

Anthony Garreffa | Mar 19, 2024 10:35 PM CDT

A new report from TrendForce reveals that "significant capital investments" have been made in the memory sector due to HBM's high ASP and profitability.

HBM supply growth estimated at 260% in 2024, consumes 14% of the DRAM industry

According to TrendForce Senior Vice President Avril Wu, by the end of 2024, the DRAM industry is expected to allocate around 14% of its total capacity to making HBM, with an estimated annual supply bit growth of around 260%. Also, HBM's revenue share is expected to increase to around 20.1% by the end of the year, up from the 8.4% that HBM had in 2023.

Wu continued, saying that in terms of production differences between HBM and DDR5, the die size of HBM is around 35-45% larger than DDR5 even on the same process and capacity (comparing 24Gb to 24Gb). Yield rates including TSV packaging (Through-Silicon Via) for HBM is around 20-30% lower than DDR5, with the production cycle taking 1.5 to 2 months longer than DDR5.
