Almost everything we know about NVIDIA's next generation GeForce GPUs is based in rumors and speculation. That will change sometime this summer, and by August at the latest, as NVIDIA is scheduled to talk about its next-gen GPUs at the Hot Chips conference. In the meantime, the latest chatter is that NVIDIA's upcoming Turing GPUs will support real-time ray tracing at the hardware level, which could elevate gaming in a big way. For anyone who is not familiar with ray tracing, it's a method for rendering graphics by which images are created by tracing rays or paths of light as they bounce in and around an object (or objects) in a scene. It's sort of the Holy Grail of graphics in gaming (and other... Read more...

The new cards are said to be based on NVIDIA's upcoming 12-nanometer 'Ampere' architecture, which itself has been the subject of rumors and speculation over the past few weeks. None of this is confirmed, but if the rumor mill is on point, NVIDIA will skip over Volta for the gaming crowd and introduce Ampere.

Whatever you want to call it, chatter on the web suggests that NVIDIA is preparing a next generation GPU called "Ampere," and that NVIDIA will officially introduce new graphics cards based around Ampere in or around April. Wouldn't that be something? This feels more like a shot in the dark to us. It certainly is not leaked information. The rumor traces back to a German-language website, 3DCenter, which posted an article with information plucked from its readers in a forum discussion. And in that discussion, one the readers suggests that TSMC had... Read more...
