Moore Threads is a new Chinese GPU maker (founded in 2020). This new brand has unveiled two days ago the MTT S60, its first desktop graphics card. This graphics card supports all 3D APIs available on PC: Direct3D (12?), Vulkan and OpenGL (4.6?), including OpenGL ES.
The GPU is built with a 12nm manufacturing process and is based on the MUSA architecture (Moore Threads Unified System Architecture). The GPU packs 2048 MUSA cores allowing to reach 6 TFLOPS in FP32 (the FP32 performance is more of less the same than the GeForce GTX 1070). The card embarks 8GB of LPDDR4X graphics memory.
MUSA is an unified system architecture adopted by the Moore threading product family, including a unified programming model, software runtime, driver framework, instruction set architecture, and chip architecture:
