First, Nvidia would have to have new designs (relative to the current RTX 30-series GPUS) for TSMC. Samsung 8N is different from all of the TSMC options, so some additional porting work would be required. It shouldn't be too complex, relatively speaking, since Nvidia already has its A100 GPU shipping on TSMC N7, but porting a design to a new manufacturing node is never 'simple.' … [Read more...] about Nvidia Will Use TSMC for Ampere 8nm Successor in 2021 (Rumor)

Actually, what would really be great to see is a supply of AMD cards that's actually able to meet the demand. That's sort of dependent on the performance and price, but right now, it remains extremely difficult to buy an RTX 30-series GPU. Nvidia supposedly delayed the RTX 3070 launch by two weeks to help build up inventory, but we still fully expect the cards to sell out. Nvidia's CEO even says Nvidia expects demand to outpace supply until early 2021. Unfortunately, while AMD has released guidelines to its retail partners on how to avoid scalpers and bots buying up inventory, we also expect AMD's RX 6000 cards to sell out for at least several weeks after launch. … [Read more...] about Fake Rumors Suck: Will the Real RX 6000 Please Stand Up?
Intel has been away from the discrete graphics market for a considerable amount of time now, and the Irix Xe Max marks the chipmaker's return. The GPU comes equipped with 96 Execution Units (EUs) that boil down to 768 shader cores. The original Iris Xe Max test platform had the GPU with 3GB of GDDR6 memory. However, the same GPU has appeared in Asus' upcoming VivoBook Flip 14 laptop with 4GB of LPDDR4X memory. It would appear that the Iris Xe Max can be configured with GDDR6 or LPDDR4X memory. … [Read more...] about Intel’s Iris Xe Max GPU Barely Beats Nvidia’s GeForce MX330 In Latest Benchmark
If we look on the current market, the Patriot Viper 4 Blackout DDR4 16GB (2x8GB), which retails for $84.99, is the cheapest DDR4-4000 memory kit in the 16GB category. The timings aren't as impressive as the frequency though. The memory kit has its timings configured at 19-21-21-41. However, there are some pretty decent DDR4-4000 offerings on the market, but they carry a heavy premium. For example, the G.Skill Ripjaws V DDR4-4000 16GB (2x8GB) boasts timings of 15-16-16-36, but presently retails for $159.99. … [Read more...] about DDR4-4000 Rumored To Be The New Sweet Spot For AMD Ryzen 5000 CPUs
