A single GeForce RTX 2080 Ti graphics card will set you back at least $999, and more likely $1,199 or more since NVIDIA's hardware partners are initially lining their custom variants with Founders Edition pricing. For those of you with deep enough pockets to grab two of these bad boys, ASUS is releasing a custom NVLink with RGB lighting, because you're not seriously going to skip the lights, right? Forgive us for, uh, making light of the situation (see what we did there?). Joking aside, the new ROG GeForce RTX NVLink with Aura Sync RGB is not only a mouthful, it's a snazzy looking NVLink to show... Read more...
Running multiple graphics cards in SLI or CrossFire was once a point of emphasis by NVIDIA and AMD, respectively, though not so much any more. Will that change NVIDIA's newly announced GeForce RTX cards? Here's the thing—both the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and GeForce RTX 2080 support NVLink to chain together two or more cards, but it appears the GeForce GTX 2070 does not. A visit to each of the new card's product pages on NVIDIA's website essentially confirm this. There is an NVLink tab on the two higher end cards, but not on the more 'affordable' GeForce RTX 2070's product page. Furthermore, the... Read more...
We've been hearing about NVIDIA's NVLink for quite a while -- ever since the original announcement of Pascal -- but we've still not seen it put into broad use. That changes with NVIDIA's super-high-end Tesla P100, but it's still not shipping in huge quantities. What might come first is IBM's newest Linux-based servers, which also employ the use of NVLink for accelerated AI and deep-learning research. As you might suspect with the use of NVLink, IBM's latest Linux servers are GPU-focused, and because of that, IBM says that they can offer up to 80% better performance-per-dollar than solely x86-based...
