Today, AMD will introduce the Radeon RX 7000 graphics cards, which may be the first mainstream adapters with PCIe 5.0 support, since the GeForce RTX 40 did not receive support for this interface. However, AMD’s new products will no longer be the first in absolute terms.
The young Chinese company Moore Threads introduced the world’s first graphics card with PCIe 5.0 – MTT S80. The S3000 card was also announced, but it is focused on the data center. Both new items are the successors of the models S60 and S2000which debuted in the spring. The novelties are based on the same MUSA architecture. MTT S80 received 4096 computing units and has a performance of 14.4 TFLOPS, which is almost like the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti.
The heart of the novelty is the GPU MUSA-Chunxiao, consisting of 22 billion transistors. Thanks to more compute units and architecture changes, the company says the new card has 3.4 times the DirectX performance and five times the OpenGL performance of its predecessor.
It is also worth noting that the adapter is equipped with 16 GB of GDDR6 memory at 14 GHz, has three DisplayPort 1.4a ports and one HDMI 2.1.
As for the S3000, it has the same configuration but 32 GB of memory. This model is also available with passive CO. Sales of new products will begin on November 11, but there are no prices yet.
