New GPU and new 8K video beast
ARM introduced three things today. The Cortex A76 is meant for the 7nm CPU, Mali G76 GPU and Mali V76 8K video processing unit.
At Hot Chips 2018 conference
It appears that Nvidia has inadvertently revealed a date and place where it will discuss its next-generation GPU plans and possibly reveal more details for its mainstream GPU, at the Hot Chips 2018 conference, scheduled for August 20th.
Zen 3, Navi, and next-gen on track
In addition to revealing that Ryzen Threadripper 2000 series is now sampling, AMD has given a bit more information on its future CPU and GPU plans with fresh two new slides, confirming that both Vega and Zen 2 7nm designs are complete as well as that its future designs are on track.
Launched by the end of the year
An official Gigabyte UK Notebook representative has told the OverclockersUK forums that Nvidia's next-generation mobile GPUs will launch towards the end of this year.
Geforce Partner Program RIP
Geforce Partner Program is officially terminated, as of last Friday, and it makes Nvidia look guilty as hell. Nvidia - a massively dominating player - has close to 75 percent of discrete market share, but this varies up and down from quarter to quarter. Some report that regulators got involved and started looking at GPP. Once you have 75 percent plus market share in anything, you don't want regulators to knock on your doors.
Large mining operations stall buying
It is starting to look like there will be more GPUs in the marketplace as Bitcoin and Etherum are losing some of its momentum, and large mining operations are holding their investment in GPUs until dedicated mining cards ASICs are out.
Threat Detection Technology
Chipzilla has been sharing some of its ideas to use the GPU to detect new classes of threats.
Settlement wrapped in a paper
Last year Nvidia stopped getting so called licensing money from Intel. After five years the financial injection was delivered in total. This all came after the Intel and Nvidia conflict that started over chipsets, but essentially was a settlement that ended up being called licensing. It never was GPU licensing.
We have been sitting on this piece of information for a while, but maybe it's the right time to share it with you. Navi 7nm the 2019 chip will not be a high end GPU, it will be a quite powerful performance/mainstream chip.
