Nvidia reportedly announced a series of powerful gaming chips on Tuesday designed using Micron Technology Inc’s new storage technology and manufactured by Samsung Electronics Co. Invida is headquartered in Santa Clara, California. The company said its GeForce RTX 3090, 3080 and 3070 chips will improve video game graphics with twice as much performance and almost twice as much power as previous chip versions.
VEda has long worked with a variety of chipmakers to manufacture equipment and has recently relied more on Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co Ltd to produce state-of-the-art chips.
Samsung will use the 8nm chip manufacturing process instead of the latest 5nm process to make the new GeForce chip. However, Navigda officials say they have worked with Samsung to customize the process, so Navida chips will be about 10 percent faster than other Samsung chips made using the same 8nm process.
“Processing techniques are much more complex. I think people have simplified it to almost ridiculous levels,” Jensen Huang, chief executive, told investors on a conference call last month, explaining why the company doesn’t always use the latest chip-making technology.
VYSA’s chips use a variety of techniques to improve graphics performance, such as using artificial intelligence processors to predict how light moves in a scene, rather than manually calculating each ray.
The latest chip also uses a storage technology that Micron has been developing since 2006, called GDDR6X, which can double the amount of data stored in N VYS chips.
“Unlike traditional memory, the GDDR6X has unparalleled data rates to keep pace with game innovation and data-intensive applications,” said Tom Eby, senior vice president and general manager of Mattel’s computing and networking business unit.
