New Chinese 7nm GPU rivals Nvidia and AMD for performance

Shanghai Tianshu Zhixin Semiconductor Co’s new 7nm GPU is up and running. The new chip is a beast, packing no fewer than 24 billion transistors. For context, Nvidia’s GA102 GPU, as found in the RTX 3080 and 3090 graphics boards, contains 28 billion transistors.

Known as Big Island (BI), the new GPU can crank out up to 147 TFLOPS of FP16 performance. As Tom’s Hardware points out, that’s certainly competitive with similar products from Nvidia and AMD. Nvidia’s A100 and the AMD Instinct MI100 are capable of 77.97 TFLOPS and 184.6 TFLOPS of FP16 performance, respectively, though the Nvidia A100 also has Tensor cores with an additional 312 TFLOPS of FP16.
