Nvidia, AMD, and Intel all had PC graphics-related reveals for in the present day’s Client Electronics Present displays, and as anticipated, the latter showcased extra of its Arc GPU whereas the 2 former showcased a number of graphics playing cards that can quickly hit the market (though who’s to say if shopping for them might be any simpler).
CES is an annual technology-focused convention the place every kind of electronics firms announce new merchandise each for the mass market and for these extra fascinated with experimental concepts. It’s the place Samsung introduced its new line of 2022 TVs that can characteristic Stadia, Nvidia GeForce Now, and NFT assist and integration, and it’s additionally the place Nvidia, AMD, and Intel pulled again the curtains on some heavily-rumored GPUs.
Let’s discuss Nvidia. The corporate introduced two new GPUs, the RTX 3050 and the RTX 3090 Ti. The RTX 3050 is the corporate’s most price range GPU, coming in at simply $249, and is able to options like raytracing and DLSS. It options 9 shader-TFLOPS, 18 RT-TFLOPS, 73 Tensor-TFLOPS, 8GB G6, and it will likely be out there for buy later this month on January 27.
The RTX 3090 Ti is Nvidia’s new flagship GPU, and whereas the corporate merely teased it, we’ve some further particulars relating to it, courtesy of The Verge.
This new card will embrace 24GB of GDDR6X operating at 21 gigabytes per second, which is identical quantity of VRAM as the usual 3090 however nearly 8 p.c sooner on the reminiscence clock aspect of issues. The Verge writes that this may present further efficiency boosts to 4K gaming and AI duties. This card can even characteristic 40 teraflops of GPU efficiency, which is 11 p.c sooner than the 3090’s 36 teraflops, and a further 78 teraflops for ray tracing and 320 teraflops for AI duties. That’s plenty of flops.
Nvidia didn’t reveal a value for the brand new 3090 Ti, nor did it reveal a launch window for it. Contemplating the 3090 runs for about $1499 (while you aren’t taking a look at costs set by resellers), this 3090 Ti is nearly definitely going to value extra. The Verge experiences that Nvidia says extra particulars about this new card might be revealed later this month.
The corporate additionally introduced new RTX 3080 Ti laptops and RTX 3070 Ti laptops.
On the AMD entrance, the corporate revealed its new Radeon RX 6500 XT graphics card, which options “breakthrough AMD RDNA 2 structure” and is “engineered to ship nice gaming efficiency and noteworthy effectivity.” AMD says the 6500 XT’s clock is likely one of the quickest in a gaming card, with 16 full items and ray accelerators, 305 gigabytes per second of efficient bandwidth with AMD Infinity Cache, 4GB of GDDR6, and a sport clock with speeds as quick as 2610 MHz. Designed to be a price range GPU for desktop computer systems, this card will hit the market on January 19 with a $199 price ticket.
AMD additionally revealed a brand new line of RX 6000S chips for gaming laptops. This chip will are available three designs: the RX 6600S, the RX 6700S, and the RX6800S. Costs for these chips and related laptops weren’t revealed, nor was a launch date.
And eventually, Intel revealed that it’s now transport Intel Arc GPUs, in any other case generally known as Intel’s Alchemist GPUs, to laptop computer and desktop makers. Sadly, there is not any phrase on when gamers will be capable of get their arms on these, nevertheless it at the very least feels like we’re inching nearer to that day. Intel says its Arc GPUs will characteristic ray tracing and XeSS, which is the corporate’s personal AI-based supersampling.
Intel additionally revealed that Dying Stranding: Director’s Minimize, a sport beforehand unique to PlayStation 5, is coming to PC, and it’s going to make use of Intel’s XeSS supersampling expertise to beef it up. You possibly can learn extra about that announcement right here.
