Moore Threads Reveals MTT S30: A New Entry-Level GPU Designed for Productivity Workloads

February 20, 2024

Moore Threads has unveiled its latest offering: the MTT S30. Positioned as an entry-level graphics processing unit (GPU), the Moore Threads MTT S30 marks the company’s foray into developing a contemporary PC GPU family native to China. While not targeted at gaming enthusiasts like its flagship counterpart, the MTT S80, the S30 promises to cater to non-gaming productivity workloads and media acceleration tasks.

The formal introduction of the Moore Threads MTT S30 comes on the heels of the company’s recent success with the performance-doubling driver update for its flagship GPU, the MTT S80. However, it’s evident that the MTT S30 is not intended to compete in the gaming segment, given its specifications. With a fraction of the unified shaders, FP32 throughput, and memory size compared to the MTT S80, the MTT S30 is primarily positioned as an integrated GPU (iGPU) replacement, aimed at accelerating high-resolution displays for productivity tasks.

Key specifications of the Moore Threads MTT S30 include:

  • Unified Shaders: 1,024
  • Tensor Accelerators: Quantity unspecified
  • GPU Clock: 1.30 GHz
  • Memory: 4 GB of GDDR6 across a 128-bit wide memory bus
  • Power Consumption: Rated at just 40 W, drawing power solely from the PCIe slot
  • Form Factor: Single-slot, half-height design
  • Display Connectors: HDMI and D-Sub
  • Host Interface: PCI-Express 4.0 x8

The Moore Threads MTT S30 modest power consumption and compact form factor make it suitable for integration into systems where space and power efficiency are paramount. By leveraging PCIe 4.0 x8 host interface, the GPU aims to offer sufficient bandwidth for handling productivity workloads efficiently.

While the exact number of tensor accelerators remains undisclosed, Moore Threads emphasizes the MTT S30’s capabilities in media acceleration, suggesting potential applications in video editing, content creation, and other multimedia tasks.

The decision to focus on productivity-oriented tasks reflects Moore Threads’ strategic approach to diversifying its GPU lineup and addressing the evolving needs of various market segments. With the MTT S30, the company aims to cater to a broader audience beyond gaming enthusiasts, tapping into the growing demand for efficient and cost-effective solutions for non-gaming computing tasks.

Industry observers are keen to see how the market responds to Moore Threads’ latest offering, particularly in regions where there is a growing emphasis on domestic technology development. As the company continues to expand its presence in the GPU market, the Moore Threads MTT S30 represents a significant step towards establishing Moore Threads as a key player in the global semiconductor industry.
