Considering Nvidia CEO Jensen has talked about Nvidia's desire to diversify and not be reliant on any single supplier for chips, plus the shortages of RTX 30-series GPUs, it makes sense for Nvidia to think about shifting some future production over to TSMC. And of course, with RTX 3090 and 3080 being the two highest power single-GPU solutions Nvidia has ever shipped to consumers, finding a way to reduce power requirements and potentially boost performance would be great. However, there are many other factors that also come into play. … [Read more...] about Nvidia Will Use TSMC for Ampere 8nm Successor in 2021 (Rumor)

Our advice, then, is to be patient, sit back, and watch things develop. We'll have full benchmarks and a review of Nvidia's GeForce RTX 3070 next week, and we'll also get AMD's official RX 6000 announcement at roughly the same time. That will likely include some preliminary AMD performance numbers for RX 6900 XT and RX 6800 XT (or whatever they end up being called). We'll have our own reviews of AMD's cards, with independent numbers using our standard testbeds, by the time those cards launch as well. Once the dust settles, we'll know how the cards truly perform and how much they cost, with no messy rumors or speculation muddying the waters. … [Read more...] about Fake Rumors Suck: Will the Real RX 6000 Please Stand Up?
AMD will unlock the floodgates for Zen 3 on November 5. There's already word around town that the Ryzen 5000-series processors will land with substantial instructions per cycle (IPC) improvements. Better memory overclocking capability would certainly be the icing on the cake. … [Read more...] about DDR4-4000 Rumored To Be The New Sweet Spot For AMD Ryzen 5000 CPUs

Intel's Raja Koduri is slated to present a "1000X More Compute for AI by 2025" presentation at Samsung's Advanced Foundry Ecosystem (SAFE) Forum next week, which comes as Intel mulls its strategy for outsourcing some of its production to third-party fabs. The presentation comes after Raja Koduri tweeted an image of a visit to Samsung's Giheung plant in Korea last year, sparking rumors that Intel would use Samsung to produce components for its Xe graphics solutions. Those rumors seemed spurious in the past, but Intel's recent announcement that it will outsource some chip production, and this week's revelation that the company still hasn't decided just what or where it will outsource, makes Koduri's latest interaction with Samsung's foundry all the more interesting. … [Read more...] about Raja Koduri To Present at Samsung Event as Intel Mulls Chip Outsourcing
