Chinese MTT S80 GPU available for preorder
First gaming card with PCIe Gen5 interface.
Over at Chinese retail website, you will find the first listing of the Moore Threads MTT S80. The card is available for 2999 RMB, but this is not the price of the graphics card itself.
This card is currently only available in a bundle with ASUS TUF GAMING B660M-PLUS D4 worth 1029 RMB. This means that the value of the M80 GPU is around 1970 RMB (276 USD). Unfortunately, there is no option to buy it separately.
Those who agree to this motherboard ‘gift’ will have to wait until November 16th which is when the cards will start shipping to the first customers. What is worth noting that other motherboard bundles will be offered later, but the launch is very limited. It is unclear how many cards were made, though.
As mentioned before, this card is based on a new GPU called Chunxiao featuring 4096 FP32 cores. It ships with 16GB of GDDR6 14 Gbps memory and is equipped with DisplayPort 1.4a and HDMI 2.1. The support for high resolution is one of the key selling points for this card (as seen in the product title).
The card supports DirectX and OpenGL APIs, but the company is not confirming which version. More importantly, MTT is only optimized for a few games, including Crossfire, League of Legends, Diablo 3, Minecraft, or Need For Speed Hot Pursuit 3. There is no word on international support for the drivers or software.
