Intel is going to react with Alder Lake-S and its new concept based on big.LITTLE vs. Zen 4, and while it is known to what extent the improvements in IPC and multicore will have an effect, the truth is that AMD is winning the battle for the game and will do more with Zen 3+. In RDNA 3 GPUs, it looks like this will be the final knockout for NVIDIA and in terms of APUs, Intel seems to be unable to compete either.
No change this year, but new GPUs and APUs are expected
What seems clear is that neither AMD nor NVIDIA have targets for this year in terms of new graphics, especially after the latter presented its RTX 3070 Ti and RTX 3080 Ti. Therefore, all efforts are focused on Ada Lovelace and RDNA 3 as key architectures. In principle, they were scheduled for the end of next year, leaving the current models in stock for a while and preparing the new nodes that promise interesting improvements, but more importantly they were waiting for a sufficient stock of pads to guarantee a sufficient number. of chips. to meet user demand.
This is quite interesting in itself, since the advances of TSMC with its 5nm node and the increase in its production will advance the arrival of DNA 3
RDNA 3 looks like the MCM architecture again
Rumors point to a double performance boost over the RX 6800 XT for the second time thanks to TSMC 3DC technology and AMD’s modular chip system. Therefore, AMD could launch a GPU with two full chips with 40 CPUs each to hit the table against NVIDIA.
For its part, Intel will not be able to compete with these two because it continues with a certain delay in its GPUs, even if it will have to face this year in the medium high range, but not for 2022, where it will have to put the batteries despite the architecture Floor tile.
Nvidia has for its part transferred to Hopper, its MCM architecture, so it will compete with monody against AMD and will have to put everything on the grill if it wants to be a minimum competitive. And is that what AMD raises represents that the low range of GPUs could move 2K at 60Hz smoothly, leave 1080p resolution for new APUs with the same RDNA 3 architecture by the end of 2022. Are we saying goodbye to low-end graphics cards?
