China’s Moore Threads MTT S80 GPU is now capable of running Crysis
Moore Threads continues to make strides with its first top-of-the-line GPU, the MTB S80. It must be remembered that this is the first top-of-the-range gaming graphics card, with a PCI-Express 5.0 interface, of Chinese origin.
As in the case of Intel, dont wait that the top-of-the-range GPU of this company compete from you to you with equivalent options from AMD or Inteland now we have the first performance tests of this GPU.
Yes, the Moore Threads MTT S80 is capable of running Crysis
For context, the GPU MTB S80 offers a configuration of 4,096 cores under architecture MUSE. These nuclei work at a frequency of 1.80GHz to deliver FP32 performance of 14.4 TFLOPs. The graphics chip is attached to a configuration of 16 GB of GDDR6 memory @ 14 Gbps accompanied by an interface 256 bit. It all works through the PCIe 5.0 interface, and unlike any top-of-the-line GPU, it’s powered by a single 8-pin PCIe connector.
Thus, at the specification level, under the paperit makes you think that it is a very powerful GPU. On the other hand, if all of this is linked to a single connector, either China has come a long way, or all this really translates into poor performance.
Luckily, 3DMark benchmark tests support this last hypothesis. Of course, before that, at least we know that the Moore Threads MTT S80 is already able to move crisis. Of course, only using the API DirectX 9 (image via @Loeschzwerg_3DC). Unfortunately, the capture does not show any data of interest. We know the GPU is working at 27% charge with a temperature of 39ºC. On the other hand, the FPS counter is fixed to 0, so it doesn’t seem to work.
Most advanced Chinese GPU performance for gaming in 3DMark
In 3DMark03at a resolution of 1080pthis GPU achieved a score of 55,422 points. With 8x AA + 16x AF to improve visual quality, the score dropped to 37,746 points. For reference, a Intel Arc A770, offers a score of 141,302 and 58,294 points respectively. This makes it clear that the MTT S80 is 61% and 35% less powerful than Intel’s top-of-the-line GPU.
In a more modern benchmark, but not much, we have the 3Dmark06 at a resolution of 1,280 x 1,2024 pixels. This offers a score of 14,780 points and 12,895 points with the filters. This represents being 64% less powerful than the Intel Arc 770 in both tests. This is enough power for the S80 MTT to rock Crysis, but we’re no longer sure what would happen with its remaster.
|Intel Arc A770||MTB S80||Difference|
|3DMark03: 1080p 8xAA, 16xAF||58,294||37,746||–35%|
|3DMark06 1080p, 8xAA, 16xAF||36,052||12,895||–64%|
Although the tests are not impressive at all, it must be remembered that this graph is officially compatible with the DirectX9 and DirectX11 APIs. As with the launch of Intel Arc GPUs, the software is still under development.
For more inri, the architecture is not even supported with very basic GPU technology As the tessellation. At least, it is capable of running games under the DirectX 11.1 API as well. It will be a matter of time before we know the final performance of these GPUs. Now the question is how much room for improvement is really hidden in those 4,096 cores that give it life.
