GeForce RTX T10-8 GPU And Intel CC150 CPU: The Hardware Powering GeForce NOW
This entry was posted on February 9, 2020.
Neither of those are common parts found in the consumer space, so looking at the model names alone, there is no way to discern the level of power they provide (outside of the "RTX" designation, which indicates dedicated RT hardware for real-time ray tracing, and Tensor Cores). Fortunately, this latest round of leaks provide some interesting details.
A tip of the hat goes to Twitter user APISAK, a prominent leaker who drew attention to the likely GeForce NOW hardware. It starts with a look at this interesting Geekbench entry...
Extrapolated further, this implies that GeForce NOW gamers are tapping into 4 cores and 8 threads on each shared Intel CC150 node. According to the database entry, it is running at 3.5GHz.
What about the GPU? The above leak references a GeForce RTX T10-8 GPU, which is interesting. However, APISAK did us one better by also pointing to a separate Ashes of the Singularity database entry. Have a look...
Here again we see an Intel CC150 CPU clocked at 3.5GHz paired with a GeForce RTX T10-8 GPU. Working in tandem, this CPU+GPU duo punches out a score of 2,600 at the "Crazy (1080p)" preset. Average framerates for all batches only check in at 27.1 frames per second, so that is not super impressive.
It's worth reminding that none of this is official information. That said, if these leaks are actually representative of the hardware that is running GeForce NOW, are you surprised, or this is pretty much what you expected?
