Moore Threads MTT S80 Chinese GPU is up for Sale for $245

Moore Treads, a Chinese company, started selling its most recent Chunxiao-based MTT S80 graphics card for client PCs on Friday. The computing capability of the add-in-board is claimed to be comparable to that of Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3060 Ti, but its performance in actual games is still unknown.

The Chunxiao graphics processor from Moore Threads, with its 4,096 stream processors, 128 tensor cores, 256 texture units, and 256 render outputs, serves as the foundation for the MTT S80 graphics board. The card also has 16GB of GDDR6 memory with a 14 GT/s data transfer rate linked to the GPU through a 256-bit interface, providing a maximum bandwidth of 448 GB/s.

The GeForce RTX 3060 Ti, one of the greatest graphics cards, has a peak compute performance of 16.2 FP32 TFLOPS, which is slightly higher than the MTT S80’s maximum compute capability of 14.4 FP32 TFLOPS. In the meantime, it’s necessary to test the MTT S80 AIB’s real-world performance in games.

The GPU ships with drivers that support the proprietary MUSA API, OpenGL/OpenGL ES from Khronos Group, DirectX from Microsoft, and numerous customized APIs. Do not anticipate too much from the card at this time, though, as Moore Threads freely admits that its DirectX support is still in its infancy and that only 20 well-known games (such as Call of Duty, Crossfire, Counter-Strike, Diablo 3, League of Legends, etc.) are initially supported. To assure compatibility and performance with the two well-known engines, the business claims that it is collaborating closely with the creators of Unity and Unreal Engine as well as game designers.

The video engine on the Chunxiao graphics processor is also capable, of supporting up to 8K videos in the AV1, H.264, and H.265 codecs. Sadly, Moore Threads won’t say which players are compatible with its hardware-assisted video decoding. The MTT S80 AIB features one HDMI 2.1 and three DisplayPort 1.4 interfaces.

Given that Nvidia’s Ada Lovelace GPUs enable a PCIe Gen4 bus, it is interesting to note that the MTT S80 is the first client graphics card in the world to provide a PCIe 5.0 x16 interface. The host interface of AMD’s most recent RDNA 3 GPUs, specifically the Radeon RX 7900 XT and Radeon 7900 XTX, has not yet been made public.

For 2999 ($373 excluding VAT), the Moore Threads MTT S80 graphics card is currently offered by VideoCardz on JD.com(opens in new tab). The AIB is packaged with the $1029 Asus TUF Gaming B660M-PLUS D4 motherboard, therefore it is not sold separately. The graphics board will cost $245 without VAT after deducting the motherboard’s value, which is a reasonable price given its computing capabilities. We can only speculate as to whether the product is genuinely worth $245 given that its performance is unknown.
