This is not a render of a graphics card/accelerator that could launch, but a real product already on display. The company has showcased its N100 accelerator at the “China International Social Public Safety Products Expo”. Attendees were also given a first look at the MXN100 GPU covered with a large integrated heat spreader. Underneath there should be a HBM2e memory of unknown capacity.

The main feature of this processor is video processing of 1 channel encoding and up to 96 decoding in HEVC, AV1, AVS2 and H.264 formats at the same time and up to 8K resolution.

Capable video processing power would be combined with AI inference processing up to 160 TOPS (trillion operations per second). The N100 could serve in intelligent video processing for transportation and cloud computing. It is unlikely to compete with AMD Instinct or NVIDIA Data-Center GPU series.

However, the MuXi co-founder did mention that the company is set to launch a full product stack by 2025 featuring graphics card with video output capabilities (the N100 is a headless accelerator) and even a gaming card. Unfortunately, no further details were provided.
