Moore Threads Launches Cut-Down MTT S70 GPU: 11.2 TFLOPs, 7 GB VRAM, 3584 Cores, PCIe Gen4


Moore Threads Launches Cut-Down MTT S70 GPU Featuring 7 GB Memory, 3584 Cores, PCIe Gen 4 1

Chinese manufacturer Moore Threads has launched a new GPU known as the MTT S70 which cuts down on specs compared to the MTT S80.

The MTT S70 is the Newest Entrant In the Chinese GPU Lineup, Still Lacks Performance & Basic Capabilities

Back in November, Moore Threads, a Chinese GPU manufacturer, unveiled its MTT S80 GPU which was the world's first PCIe Gen 5.0 design. The graphics card had some decent specifications but the software ecosystem was severely lacking with the graphics card barely being faster than the NVIDIA GT 1030 in gaming & AI performance and also being quite lackluster despite some heavy emphasis on DNN/ML performance.

Now several months later, Moore Threads has decided to introduce a second GPU albeit with a cut-down design that adopts lower cores and drops one of the biggest marketing features of the MTT lineup, support for PCIe Gen 5.0.

The Moore Threads MTT S70 features 3584 MUSA cores with a boost clock up to 1.6 GHz, equipped with 7 GB GDDR6 memory, a bandwidth of 392 GB/s, and 11.2 TFLOPs of computing power (FP32). Compared to its nearest sibling, the MTT S80, which features 4096 MUSA streaming cores and runs at 1.8 GHz, the MTT S70 is a lower-end variant.

Additionally, this graphics card uses a PCIe Gen4x16 connection. The GPU features the same triple fan configuration and a similar design as the MTT S80. The card measures 285mm x 112mm x 49mm and can support a maximum resolution of 7680 x 4320 at 30Hz. The MTT S70 has 3 Display Ports 1.4a and 1 HDMI 2.1 port, which is enough for an average consumer.

Moore Threads did not provide any information about the GPU's performance (which they should have). Still, this GPU is not competitive with the latest generation of NVIDIA and AMD cards on paper. But the company did announce its new 221.13 driver which for the first time adds support for DX11 games such as Valorant, Ark of Destiny, Stellaris, NBA 2K Online 2, Project Dyson Ball, Crysis 3, Autumn Winds, Dark Souls 3, Devil May Cry 5, etc.

A review of the MTT S80 noted that the GPU was close to the older GTX 1030, primarily because of the GPU's extreme underutilization, issues with the API, and software compatibility. The GPU also sipped an insane amount of power (252W vs 30W for the GT 1030 to deliver the same graphics performance). Since this was a significant problem, we hope the company has fixed it with the MTT S70. Moore Threads' GPUs, like the MTT S70, will only sell well if they compete with or outperform existing offerings. Without support for modern technologies like DLSS and even the bare minimum of DX12, we cannot see customers opting for this choice.
