Published

on

NVIDIA has reportedly ceased production of its GeForce RTX 20 ‘Turing’ lineup to make room for the next-generation GeForce RTX 30 ‘Ampere’ graphics cards. The report comes from Ithome who has reported that not only are the majority of the high-end GeForce RTX 20 series graphics cards being discontinued but will soon be delisted by major vendors as they prep up for NVIDIA’s next-generation gaming lineup.

As per the report, NVIDIA will be ending production of its high-end GeForce RTX 20 series lineup which includes the following graphics cards:

GeForce RTX 2080 TiGeForce RTX 2080 SUPERGeForce RTX 2070 SUPERGeForce RTX 2070

All four graphics cards listed are part of NVIDIA’s high-end and ultra-enthusiast segment. All cards utilize different Turing GPU, we get the TU102 on the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, the TU104 on GeForce RTX 2080 & RTX 2070 SUPER and the TU106 GPU on the GeForce RTX 2070. The report also claims that not only would the production be halted on these four graphics cards but they will also be de-listed by major vendors including NVIDIA themselves in the coming months.

It is additionally reported that ending production on GeForce RTX 20 series graphics cards will lead to severe shortages in the coming weeks due to a rising demand in the mining segment which has started to revive in recent months. This could lead to the GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER & RTX 2080 Ti graphics cards to be out of stock much sooner than expected.

Intel Claims 10th Gen Core i7-10750H CPU Offers Up To 37% Faster Gaming Performance Than AMD’s Ryzen 7 4800H ‘Renoir’ APU, Up To 25% Higher Productivity Performance In “Real-World’ Benchmarks

Intel has released a set of new benchmarks as part of its ‘Real World Performance’ testing methodology which compares its 10th Gen Comet Lake-H lineup against AMD’s Ryzen 4000 processors codenamed Renoir.

Intel’s Latest ‘Real World Performance’ Benchmarks Compared 10th Gen CPUs Against AMD’s Ryzen 4000 Renoir APUs, Claims Up To 37% Faster Gaming Performance

The Intel Real World Performance benchmarks have been marked with controversy ever since the blue team started using them. We have seen examples of Intel using different configurations when testing their own and competing chips, giving their own lineup an unfair advantage. We have also seen misleading slides where AMD CPUs were shown as one tier below the Intel CPUs based on its own performance metrics which consist of benchmarks purely optimized for their own processors or single-core workloads.

Intel 10th Gen CPU vs AMD Ryzen 4000 Renoir APU_Real World Performance Benchmarks_Gaming_1

In the latest set of benchmarks published by Benchlife, Intel is shown comparing its 10th Gen Core i7-10750H (Comet Lake-H) CPU to the AMD Ryzen 7 4800H (Renoir-H) APU. The Intel Core i7-10750 features 8 cores and 16 threads on a 14nm process node which clock in at 2.60 GHz base and 5.00 GHz boost clocks with TDP configured at 45W (PL1). The AMD Ryzen 7 4800H, on the other hand, is an 8 core and 16 thread APU on a 7nm process node which clocks in at 2.9 GHz base and 4.2 GHz boost.

One thing that should be mentioned here is that when comparing TDPs, Intel always sets its figures at the base clock. The 45W TDP for the Core i7-10750H is derived at 2.60 GHz while the PL2 rating is derived at the highest boost frequency. For 5.00 GHz, the Core

AMD Navi 21 ‘Big Navi’ GPU Rumored To Be Featured In 16 GB & 12 GB Radeon RX Gaming Graphics Cards

Published

on

AMD’s Big Navi Radeon RX graphics card rumors are heating up as we get closer to Q4 2020. After the most recent rumor from Chinese PTT forums, a second rumor has emerged which points to a similar story but also adds in an interesting detail about the various configurations that we could expect from AMD’s enthusiast-grade RDNA 2 ‘Navi 2X’ GPUs.

MD Radeon RX ‘Big Navi GPU’ Gaming Graphics Cards Rumored To Launch in 16 GB & 12 GB Flavors

The second rumor comes from a more credible leaker ‘Wjm47196’ from Chiphell who has got many AMD specific rumors correct in the past. According to his latest rumor, the AMD Navi 21 GPU, which is internally referred to as ‘Big Navi’ and has been spotted with the Sienna Cichlid & Navy Flounder codenames, will feature at least two different memory configurations.

Rogame already pointed out at least four SKUs for the Navi 21 (RDNA 2) GPU but we did not know anything else aside from the PCI IDs. There’s active speculation going on right now regarding exact specifications and configurations of each SKU in terms of core counts, texture mapping units, and ROPs since we now know that the GPU consists of 5120 stream processors packed within 80 CUs.

Let’s have some fun
😁

We know by now that Navi21 die has 80CU. We also know there are 4 variants of Navi21:

Navi21 XTX
Navi21 XT
Navi21 XL
Navi21 XE

W = water
A = Air

How many CUs do you think each variant will have?

I think XE will be cut down memory bus 320bit

— _rogame (@_rogame) August 5, 2020

As per Rogame, the Navi 21 GPU currently has the following SKUs:

Navi 21 XTX (0x731F:D0)Navi 21 XT (0x731F:D1)Navi 21 XL (0x731F:D3)Navi 21 XLE (0x731F:DF)

Each GPU SKU will be replacing the existing cards in the Radeon RX 5000 series family but in an entirely different performance segment. For comparison, Navi 10 also has four GPU SKUs that are available to consumers. The Navi 10 XTX chip is the highest binned part which powers the Radeon RX 5700 XT 10th Anniversary Edition followed by the Navi 10 XT GPU that powers the Radeon RX 5700 XT, Navi 10 XL which powers the Radeon RX 5700 and finally, the Navi 10 XLE which powers the Radeon RX 5600 XT.

According to the rumor, AMD is expected to introduce its Big Navi GPU based Radeon RX graphics cards lineup in at least two different VRAM configurations. The flagship variant is said to feature a 16 GB GDDR6 capacity while a cut-down variant is stated to feature 12 GB GDDR6 capacity. A 16 GB VRAM capacity would suggest a 512-bit bus interface for the flagship and a 384-bit bus interface for the cut-down 12 GB model.

Exclusive: The State Of AMD’s Supply Chain, August 2020

Published

on

We have been closely following the news cycle on alleged capacity constraints at AMD for quite a while now and with no clear answer, we thought it was time to do some digging of our own. This story is focused around the recent interest in AMD’s mobility processors (specifically Renoir) and is based on multiple sources spread throughout ODMs, AIBs, and industry contacts that deal directly with logistics (based out of Taiwan). All information presented has been carefully vetted, cross-checked and should be independently verifiable by anyone wishing to do so.

MD Renoir shipments to ODMs tripled from Q1 to Q2 with overall mobile shipments at a record level, supply chain is scaling at an unprecedented pace

AMD’s Renoir is an APU that is the culmination of an effort almost 4 years in the making. Combining the best of every world for laptops and notebooks, Renoir promises to provide one of the fastest computes, amazing graphics, and huge battery life at a cost lower than ever before. We have covered Renoir extensively in the past and our in-house polls have indicated it as one of the most eagerly anticipated chips from AMD. That said, fluctuating regional/retail availability of notebooks has sparked speculation about potential capacity constraints over at AMD and this is something we will investigate today.

The first thing we did was reach out to AMD for an official statement and while they had the following comment prepared for us, in typical AMD fashion, they decided not to reveal anything further:

We are seeing unprecedented demand for our AMD Ryzen 4000 mobile series processors based on leadership performance and energy efficiency. AMD Ryzen 4000 processor sales ramped faster than any mobile processor in AMD history. We are increasing production to address the incremental demand requests from our customers for AMD Ryzen 4000 series processors and are focused on growing our footprint in the notebook market.

– AMD Spokesperson to Wccftech, 8/5/2020

This comment from AMD does confirm that the company is scaling up production to meet demand, but it still doesn’t address the core of the issue. It also contains a very interesting hint which I will reference later. Lack of availability can usually be attributed to two different causes: a supply bottleneck (capacity constraint) or an excessive, unprecedented surge of demand that creates a temporary “supply chain lag” in the ecosystem. To answer this question, I reached out to some sources that are familiar with these issues and got some interesting facts back.

Before I state the gory details, let’s go over some publicly known context: AMD has already revealed that they delivered a record number of mobile shipments last quarter. They have also confirmed that Renoir is the fastest revenue ramping notebook processor in their history. With that in mind, based on my
