GPU manufacturer Nvidia has accused Intel of promoting false benchmark figures about the performance of its Knights Landing Xeon Phi co-processor cards. Nvidia claims that in the latest version of the benchmark, Nvidia's Maxwell-based Tesla card is 30 percent faster. The company also says that a newer version of the Tesla co-processor using the latest Pascal GPU architecture would be 90 percent faster.
IT has indeed been a long wait for the avid PC gamer - the wait for a new generation of graphics cards using new GPU architectures. It has also been a long wait for replacements for the 'mainstream' GPUs like the Nvidia GeForce 970 and AMD Radeon R9 380. The wait is finally over now with the release of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060.
