A theoretical FP32 power of 1.5 TFLOPS; even the GTX 1630 does better!

About a month ago, a user posted snaps of a Glenfly Arise GT10C0 graphics card on Bilibili. The company has posted the specifications of this graphics card online. With a theoretical power of 1.5 TFLOPS FP32, slightly higher than the GeForce GTX 750 Ti, it’s not a very powerful card. Even the recent GeForce GTX 1630 does better with 1.82 TFLOPS. The entry-level RDNA 2 and Ampere is logically much superior: with 3.6 TFLOPS, the AMD Radeon RX 6400, the most accessible RDNA2 reference, is 2.4 times more powerful if we take this data alone. As for the GeForce RTX 3050, it has a theoretical single precision power of 9.1 TFLOPS.

Well, the two references mentioned above have GPUs engraved in 8 nm and 6 nm; Glenfly Arise’s GPU is fabricated on a 28nm node. The GPU frequency is only 500 MHz. The graphics card has 2 or 4 GB of DDR4 memory clocked at 1.2 GHz, on a 64 or 128-bit bus. This GT10C0 uses a PCIe 3.0 x8 interface.

APIs, OS…

The graphics card supports DirectX 11 and OpenGL 4.5 APIs, offers decoding / encoding of HEVC and H.264 codecs. Moreover, it supports multiple operating systems, including Linux or Windows, and works on Intel and AMD platforms, or Chinese brands.
