NVIDIA announced its GeForce RTX Turing graphics cards to much fanfare last month, and they promise to up the realism in future games with real-time ray tracing support. We've seen -- to great effect -- how real-time ray tracing can enhance shadow, lighting and water effects in games like Battlefield V, MechWarrior 5 and Shadow of the Tomb Raider.  However, real-time ray tracing is extremely taxing on GPU hardware -- even with the brawny GeForce RTX 2080 Ti. In a game like Battlefield V, with NVIDIA RTX enabled, the game runs at just over 60fps at 1080p and between 40 to 50fps at 1440p (in pre-release form with unfinished GPU drivers). When you crank...

We are on the cusp of the era of real-time ray tracing in games. It effectively begins once NVIDIA starts shipping its GeForce RTX series cards based on the company's Turing GPU architecture, with dedicated Tensor and RT cores underneath the hood, but what kind of performance can we realistically expect? That depends on the situation. As you might already know, real-time ray tracing requires an enormous amount of horsepower. It deals with levels of detail that are beyond the scope of rasterization rendering, and can produce photorealistic visuals. To bring real-time ray tracing to games, companies like NVIDIA are focusing a sort of hybrid implementation, where parts of a scene are ray-traced.... Read more...
Yesterday afternoon, we had the pleasure of chatting with Tom Petersen (TAP), NVIDIA's Director of Technical Marketing and a Distinguished Engineer. Given that NVIDIA's next-generation graphics cards are on everyone's mind these days, it should come as no surprise that we went straight into exploring the Turing architecture that underpins the GeForce RTX 2070, RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti. We peppered Tom with questions on what we can expect from Turing's various new technologies like Ray Tracing, Tensor cores, DLSS and the expected performance lift over NVIDIA's previous gen GeForce GTX 10 products.   You can check out our extensive Q&A with TAP in the video below:...

We have a treat coming up for you all tomorrow afternoon, as we’ll be hosting a livestream chat with Tom Petersen, who serves as the Director of Technical Marketing for NVIDIA. It doesn’t take a cryptologist to figure out what we’re going to be talking about: all things NVIDIA Turing of course. Early last week, NVIDIA announced its next-generation gaming graphics card lineup which includes the GeForce RTX 2070, RTX 2080 and the RTX 2080 Ti. In addition to promising raw gaming performance gains over the previous generation GeForce GTX 10 series, these new Turing cards also bring NVDIA RTX real-time ray-tracing technology and some new image quality features, like AI-powered...

Now that NVIDIA has announced its GeForce RTX family of graphics cards, all that anyone can talk about these days is real-time ray-tracing. NVIDIA is billing it as a key selling point for the GeForce RTX family, and we can see why the company is so willing to unleash the feature on gamers. However, while gamers have been increasingly pushing their rigs to enjoy 4K gaming, future titles relying on NVIDIA RTX technology are currently running at 1080p. But given the footage that we've seen -- and that continues to leak out -- it could be worth the tradeoff if you like eye candy. Take for example this leaked alpha footage from Battlefield V. This footage goes beyond what we showed... Read more...
This week at Gamescom 2018, NVIDIA held a GeForce Gaming Celebration to unveil its new GeForce RTX 2080 and 2070 series graphics cards, based on its new Turing GPU architecture. The NVIDIA GPU that powers GeForce RTX cards ushers in a wealth of new technologies, enabled by its new processing engines. These new technologies include hardware-accelerated, real-time Ray Tracing and a new form of anti-aliasing called DLSS or Deep Learning Super Sampling, among a few others we can't talk about just yet. What’s interesting about DLSS is that it uses Turing’s Tensor cores to enable a deep learning-powered AI technique to dramatically improve image quality and remove jagged edge artifacts...

This has been a big week for NVIDIA, as it officially announced its GeForce RTX family on Monday that promises to bring real-time ray tracing (and all of the added realism that comes as a result) to the next-generation of video games. While we've talked a lot about the hardware that powers NVIDIA RTX real-time ray tracing, we'd like to give you a deeper look at what developers are presenting when it comes to games. In our GeForce RTX announcement article, we brought you footage from Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Battlefield V and Metro Exodus. Today, we have some live gameplay from Gamescom 2018 of both Battlefield V and MechWarrior 5 Mercenaries using... Read more...
We're roughly an hour away from NVIDIA's official launch of the GeForce RTX series of gaming graphics cards, however, the event has already been spoiled. As we've detailed in numerous articles over the past few days, nearly every spec has been revealed along with numerous third-party cards: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition Ray-Tracing Beast GPU Leaks With Dual Fans NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Allegedly Sports 2304 CUDA Cores, 8GB GDDR6, $400-ish Price ASUS, EVGA, Zotac GeForce RTX Cards Leak With Dual And Triple Fan Goodness PNY GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Leak Confirms Beefy 4352 CUDA Cores, Preorder Pricing GeForce RTX 2080 And RTX 2080 Ti Extravaganza: More Cards From MSI, Palit And Gigabyte...

Last night, NVIDIA dropped its first Turing GPU bombshell on us with the launch of the Quadro RTX 5000, RTX 6000, and RTX 8000. While those are no doubt impressive GPUs with plenty of horsepower to back them up, gamers aren't prepared to plop down $2,300 to $10,000 for a graphics card. With this in mind, NVIDIA posted a teaser video for its next-generation GeForce lineup, which is scheduled to be announced next week at Gamescom. Although at first glance the teaser video doesn't seem to provide much insight into the new cards, some eagle-eyed Redditors have laid out the evidence that the first card to be announced will be called the GeForce RTX 2080. The evidence is spread throughout the video,... Read more...
We are getting oh-so-close to the launch of NVIDIA's next-generation of consumer graphics cards, presumably launching on August 20, if previous rumors and leaks turn out to accurate. As that date draws closer, there is more evidence of what is to come. That evidence can be found at the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) where NVIDIA has filed a few interesting names. One of the names is "Turing." Up until now, we have seen the Turing name show up only in unofficial leaks, but now NVIDIA has made the trademark official. This is the strongest evidence yet that NVIDIA's next-gen GPUs will carry the Turing codename, as opposed to Ampere or Volta (the latter of which is available on some professional... Read more...
