Jingjia Micro is preparing to unveil two GPUs; One could correspond to GeForce GTX 1080, AMD RX Vega 64
Notable chipmakers around the world, such as NVIDIA and Intel, have high standards when it comes to their graphics cards. On the other hand, manufacturers based in China tend to lag behind their Western counterparts.
For many years, China has found ways to launch at least one quality GPU that could match other well-known and trusted brands.
Now, it looks like this is happening gradually with Jingjia Micro’s next GPUs appearing to be ready for the market soon. One of its cards to be launched soon would be close to NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 1080 in terms of performance.

China has yet to catch up with the world’s biggest chipmakers, but Jingjia Micro has a promising reveal on its next two GPUs.
Chinese processor maker Jingjiawei or better known as Jingjia Micro was not really a semiconductor manufacturing company. The truth is, it started as a company that develops military grade electronics.
Jingjia Micro’s adventure didn’t end there and he continued to explore fashion trends.
In recent years, Jingjia Micro has been waiting for the opportunity to launch a marketable GPU across the country. This has happened before when the company managed to ditch its first domestically produced GPU.
This year, Jingjiawei appears to be preparing two next GPUs in the lineup, MyDrivers noted.
The finding became more interesting when the company said the JM9271 GPU could match AMD’s RX Vega 64 or GeForce GTX 1080.
An entry-level graphics card is also included in the range. The second and last model called JM9231 would be close to the performance of the Radeon RX 560 or the GeForce GTX 1080.
What to look for for JM9231 and JM9271 from Jingjia Micro?
According to Techspot’s report on Thursday, September 16, Jingjia Micros’ JM9231 will feature two FP32 teraflops as well as a 150-watt TDP. It will also have 8 GB of GDDR5 memory.
Meanwhile, a more powerful JM9271 arrives with 16 GB of HBM memory. It will also bring 8 teraflops at a TDP of 200 watts.
As of this writing, Jingjia Micro stated that it still works with both GPUs. Graphics cards will undergo a series of tests before being official to the public.
So far, Jingjiawei is hoping that his next GPUs could be usable at the same level as the most popular cards. For gaming fans, the company has yet to say whether JM9271 and JM9231 can run games smoothly.
All over China, there are many companies doing their best to match Western quality in chip manufacturing. Even if it is still far from happening, we could see that it is quite possible thanks to its slow progression.

NVIDIA GPUs in China hit by price hike
Earlier this month, the price trend for NVIDIA graphics cards in China was steadily increasing after the Ethereum price accelerated.
An 18% increase could mean that many buyers will avoid buying said chips. However, for ETH miners, this opportunity could give them more earnings through crypto mining.
