China has developed its own gaming graphics card – it is almost as good as RTX 2060
The price and start date of sales are unknown
China, it seems, will soon be able to compete with NVIDIA, AMD and Intel. Moore Threads, founded just a year and a half ago, announced the MUSA (MT Unified System Architecture) graphics architecture for its new video cards. This architecture is designed for a 12 nm process technology.
The Chinese also showed two graphics accelerators at once – MTT S60 for desktop PCs and MTT S2000 for servers. The first card received a performance of about 6 TFLOPS, the second – 12 TFLOPS. This is higher than the Xbox Series S – there the graphics subsystem has a capacity of 4 TFLOPS. By the way, the RTX 2060 gives out just over 6 TFLOPS.
MTT S60 is equipped with 8 GB of LPGDDR4X memory, MTT S2000 already has 32 GB. At the same time, support for OpenCL, OpenGL, Vulkan, and even NVIDIA CUDA is declared. In addition, there is H.264, H.265, AV1 hardware encoding and H.264, H.265, AV1, VP8, VP9 decoding.
Finally, as part of the presentation, the developers showed the work in League of Legends in FullHD, although there are no comparative graphs yet.
It is not yet reported when the card will appear on sale and at what price.
The Chinese have licensed a video card that will compete with NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060
The Chinese company Xindong has successfully certified the Xindong Fenghua No. 1 graphics accelerator. It meets the requirements of the Chinese operating system Tongxin UOS and is said to fully support other operating systems, including Windows.
The source reports that the Chinese media are calling the new card “analogous to the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060.” It uses a 12nm video chip based on the PowerVR architecture, up to 16 GB of GDDR6 / 6X video memory with a bandwidth of 19 Gb / s per pin, and there is also a PCI Express 4.0 interface. OpenGL and Vulkan GUIs are supported.
Tests in well-known benchmarks have not yet been conducted. The price and start date of sales are also unknown. At the same time, earlier Chinese manufacturers began releasing desktop video cards based on GA106 GPUs from the mobile GeForce RTX 3060.
