It feels crazy to us that the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas is once again right around the corner (next month, in fact), but here we are, just weeks away. That means the rumors and speculation are starting to flow, with regards to what CES might bring. Accordingly, there is talk of NVIDIA launching its mobile RTX GPUs at or just before the convention. One thing we can reasonable assume is that NVIDIA will eventually port its Turing GPUs with dedicated real-time ray tracing hardware baked inside over to mobile, after having already launched Turing on the desktop. Will it actually... Read more...
Following a rash of strategic 'leaks' by social media influencers, NVIDIA on Monday formally introduced its Titan RTX graphics card, a heavy-hitting accelerator that the company is appropriately billing as "the world's most powerful desktop GPU." It's built to handle the data-crunching rigors of deep learning applications, and of course brings ray tracing performance to the fold. As with all RTX card, the Titan RTX—or T-Rex, as NVIDIA has nicknamed it—is built around the company's Turing GPU. NVIDIA claims its newest graphics card can pummel workloads with 130 teraflops of deep learning... Read more...
It seems NVIDIA is collaborating with several social media influencers to drum up excitement about an unreleased and unannounced product—the Titan RTX. This card is very real, and it's being teased on various spots on the web, albeit without any concrete details such as specs and pricing. A launch can't be far behind, though. Image Source: Twitter via Andrew Ng One thing we can say for certain about the upcoming Titan RTX is that it will feature dedicated hardware—RT cores—to handle real-time ray tracing.chores. This is the staple feature of Turing as already found in NVIDIA's... Read more...
After two short months of the market, NVIDIA's Turing T4 GPU has become the fastest adopted server GPU of all time. NVIDIA reported that the T4 forms part of 57 new server designs and it has become a key processing engine for the Google Cloud Platform. "We have never before seen such rapid adoption of a datacenter processors," said Ian Buck, vice president and general manager of Accelerated Computing at NVIDIA. "Just 60 days after the T4's launch, it's now available in the cloud and is supported by a worldwide network of server makers. The T4 gives today's public and private clouds the performance...

NVIDIA has made it official. The least powerful version of its new GeForce RTX Series of gaming cards will launch on October 17th. The company made the announcement today via Twitter, and the GeForce RTX 2070 Turing-based graphics cards will have a starting price of $499 for third-party cards. If you want an NVIDIA-branded Founders Edition card, you'll have to fork over $599. However, if the GeForce RTX 2080 and GeForce RTX 2080 Ti represent an accurate readout of pricing, it may be quite some time before we see custom GeForce RTX 2070 cards approach that $499 street price. Custom GeForce RTX 2070... Read more...

To date, NVIDIA has disclosed a number of details regarding its GeForce RTX series graphics cards, based on the bleeding-edge Turing GPU architecture. We covered NVIDIA’s official announcements direct from Gamescom, where high-level features like Ray Tracing, DLSS, NVLink, and pricing were initially revealed and followed up with a nice, long podcast chat with NVIDIA’s own Tom Petersen, during which a handful of interesting tid-bits were divulged. We were able to dive into the Turing architecture last week, where we detailed and explained what makes Turing tick in all of its brain-melting... Read more...
A few weeks back, at an event just prior to the Gamescom kick-off in Cologne, Germany, NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang officially unveiled the company’s initial GeForce RTX 2000 series graphics card line-up, based on its new Turing GPU microarchitecture. Jensen discussed a number of the cards’ new features and capabilities, including real-time hardware accelerated ray tracing, a new deep learning assisted anti-aliasing technology dubbed DLSS, and he covered some specific speeds and feeds regarding the upcoming GeForce RTX cards themselves. Many other deeper technical details regarding... Read more...
NVIDIA knows how to make an entrance, that's for sure. The GPU maker stole the spotlight at Gamescom last month by unveiling its hotly anticipated GeForce RTX graphics cards with real-time ray tracing support, which will ship later this month. In the meantime, NVIDIA just announced another product at its GPU Technology Conference (GTC) in Japan, the Tesla T4. The Tesla T4 is a burly accelerator built for data centers that will enable the next wave of AI-powered services. It's based on NVIDIA's Turing GPU architecture and is being billed as the most advanced inference accelerator ever built, with... Read more...
NVIDIA recently announced a new generation of desktop graphics cards for consumers based on its Turing GPU architecture, and with specialized real-time ray tracing hardware underneath the hood. These new cards have the potential to usher in a new era in gaming. But what about mobile? It stands to reason that mobile GPU launch will follow, and that seems to be the case. Playing games with parts of scenes displaying real-time ray tracing effects is certainly exciting. It's also a demanding ask of the hardware. The desktop is the logical place to start, though it's not the only place gamers play PC... 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...

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... 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... Read more...
Despite the fact that NVIDIA has kept tight-lipped about its upcoming Turing-based GeForce graphics cards, it really does seem like the worst-kept secret by this point. More information is starting to trickle out, and unfortunately for NVIDIA, its own partners are doing that leaking. Today, we learn of the specs of the so-called GeForce RTX 2080 Ti - notice the "RTX" there in place of "GTX". If it proves true, and it seems more and more likely that it is, then the GTX name is gone - at least in the high-end. At the professional graphics conference SIGGRAPH, which took place in Vancouver last week,... Read more...
