MTT 240.50 driver offers optimizations for a long list of games and support for OpenGL 3.3
Moore Threads released new GPU drivers for its S70/S80 gaming GPUs
China’s Moore Threads is still catching up with its competitors. With each release, they offer not only faster but also improved drivers for their GPUs and new games. If the efforts made to optimize Intel’s Arc GPUs show how long and laborious it can be to get Windows drivers to work on completely new architectures, then Moore Threads is still a long way off.
But the company is moving slowly, but it will get there eventually. The newer “240.50” drivers work with the OpenGL 3.3 API on Windows 10 (not to mention Windows 11). It’s worth noting that this API is now 13 years old and the most recent version is 4.6. So there is definitely room for improvement.
Additionally, Moore Threads announced a massive increase for certain DirectX11 games. For example, PUBG will now run 80% faster than the previous version of the driver, and GTA 5 It will work 60% faster. The company is also offering a 60% increase in valorant or 50% in Race fit. These are just a few examples, but there are many more games optimized for RPG/MMO games popular in China.

Clearly, the company’s goal is to offer a playable experience in all of those titles. It doesn’t matter if the top-of-the-line MTT gaming GPU is slower than other products; What matters is whether it works and how cheap it is. But let’s not forget that the S80 has some pretty impressive specs, including 16GB GDDR6 memory and a PCIe Gen5 interface. Unfortunately, the card continues to experience power consumption issues, especially in idle state.
