The Nvidia A100 accelerator was introduced a year ago. It is based on the giant GA100 GPU with 54 billion transistors and boasts 40GB of HBM2 memory.
However, such a huge amount of memory, apparently, seemed to Nvidia insufficient, so in the near future we will see the release of Nvidia A100 with double the amount of memory! Yes, the accelerator will receive 80 GB of HBM2 memory with a bandwidth of 2 TB / s.
Such a device with PCIe and SXM interfaces has already been registered in the Nvidia documentation, but there has not been an official announcement yet. There are no other details, so it is not known if the GPU configuration will change. As a reminder, the current A100 has only 6912 active CUDA cores out of 8192 GPU cores.
Rumors are actively attributing huge power consumption up to 600 W and even higher to GeForce RTX 40 video cards. Radeon RX 7000 cards will also consume more than the current generation.
AMD Senior Vice President Sam Naffziger revealed some details about the RDNA 3 architecture and products based on it. He also touched upon the topic of energy consumption.
The demand for gaming and computing performance is increasing, while at the same time the development of technical processes is slowing down quite sharply. Thus, the power level will only increase. We now have a multi-year roadmap with very significant energy efficiency improvements to offset this curve, but the trend is there.
Performance is critical, but even if our designs are more energy efficient, that doesn’t mean we won’t raise power levels if competitors are doing the same. They’ll just have to raise them much higher than us.
Thus, the Radeon RX 7000 line, despite the previously stated 50 percent advantage (over the RX 6000) in power efficiency, will stand out for its high power consumption simply because of the huge performance boost. At the same time, AMD is confident that Nvidia will have to increase power consumption even higher.
For now, the RX 6000 line is more power efficient than the GeForce RTX 30, although the difference isn’t huge. Previously, there were rumors that the top-end RX 7900 XT will consume 450 watts versus 600 watts in the case of the RTX 4090, but so far these are just rumors.
Who will release the weakest modern video card? GeForce GTX 1630, claiming this title, will be released on June 28
The GeForce GTX 1630 graphics card may hit the market on June 28th. This was announced by the manufacturer of 3D-maps Colorful.
However, the source says that the date may change, and this is quite likely, given that Nvidia has already postponed the launch of the adapter twice.
The GTX 1630 will be the weakest video card from the current Nvidia line if we are talking about new products. Recall that it is based on the TU117 GPU with 512 CUDA cores, has 4 GB of memory and a 64-bit bus.
The performance of such an adapter will be very modest. Previously, there was evidence that the new product will be slower than the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti. This means that it will probably be weaker than the latest Intel Arc A380, which is 5-15% behind the GTX 1650.
Ryzen 6800U and Radeon 680M: Aya Neo is preparing another portable console – Flip clamshell
Chinese manufacturer AyaNeo has announced the fifth handheld game console, which will be released in the fourth quarter of this year. This is a model called Flip, which is structurally similar to the Nintendo DS.
So far, there are no special details about the new product. It is only known that the console will receive an 8-core and 16-thread Ryzen 7 6800U (Zen 3+) with a frequency range from 2.7 to 4.7 GHz. Integrated graphics – Radeon 680M architecture RDNA 2. The device will also receive a 7-inch display. Also, judging by the published image, AyaNeo Flip will receive analog sticks and rear triggers.
Note that the company has already announced the release of AyaNeo 2, AyaNeo 2 Geek, AyaNeo Air and AyaNeo Slide. The latest version, by the way, is made in the slider form factor. There, a full-fledged keyboard is hidden under the screen.
There is no information about the start date of sales yet, the price and configuration options are also unknown.
