Moore Threads MTT S80/MTT S3000: New GPUs from China against Western competition


from Oliver Jaeger
The Chinese graphics card manufacturer Moore Threads introduces the next two desktop and server models just eight months after the MTT S60 and MTT S2000. These are called MTT S80 and MTT S3000. The desktop model is said to have 16 GiB of memory, 4,096 FP32 ALUs and support for PCI Express 5.0 x16.

The best-known and most sought-after graphics cards undoubtedly come from American manufacturers, with Nvidia and AMD standing out prominently. GPUs from less well-known manufacturers are also appearing from East Asia again and again, although they cannot (yet) compete with the western top models. However, there is one candidate in Moore Threads that is slowly but surely making itself competitive. Because similar to Intel’s Arc Alchemist flagship Arc A770, the newly introduced MTT S80 model from Moore Threads should be able to find itself in the performance areas of a Geforce RTX 3060 Ti or RTX 3070.

The MTT S80 and the data center counterpart MTT S3000 are the successors to the MTT S60 and MTT S2000, which Moore Threads only introduced in March 2022. So it only took eight months before the next generation could start. The manufacturer was only founded two years ago. With the Chinese, things are happening in quick succession.

MTT S80 and MTT S3000 – The data situation

The graphics architecture of the new cards is the same as that of the previous models. This is called MUSA (MT Unified System Architecture), but the corresponding GPU is new and has the addition “Chunxiao” and is said to house 22 billion transistors. Moore Threads claims to have significantly improved performance for popular graphics APIs. DirectX performance is said to be up to 3.4 times higher than its predecessor and five times higher in OpenGL. In addition, the video coding is four times better and the decoding speed is twice as high.

According to the manufacturer, the MTT S80 has 4,096 FP32 ALUs, clocked at 1.8 GHz, and 14.4 TFLOPS, putting it close to a Geforce RTX 3060 Ti or RTX 3070. The whole thing is paired with 16 GiByte GDDR6 memory , which is 14 Gbit/s fast and should operate with a maximum transfer rate of 448 GB/s. Like Nvidia’s new flagship Geforce RTX 4090, the MTT S80 is equipped with four video connections, including three DisplayPort 1.4a and one HDMI 2.1. However, Moore Thread’s reference design of the graphics card has three fans and occupies two slots. Interestingly, the Chinese graphics card also supports PCI Express 5.0 x16. When introducing the MTT S80, League of Legends served as the basis for the demonstration.

There is also the MTT S3000 for server environments with the identical number of FP32-ALUs, but twice the amount of memory of 32 GiByte. With 15.2 TFLOPS, the MTT S3000 should clock at 1.9 GHz. The two DisplayPort 1.4a connections are unusual for a data center GPU. Meanwhile, the manufacturer announced November 11 as the release date for the MTT-S80 desktop graphics card. However, the pricing is still a secret.
