If you need further evidence of the looming launch of NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 2060, look no further. Images of the NVIDIA-branded GeForce RTX 2060 Founder Edition (FE) have surfaced and they confirm that the card features a dual-fan design similar to that of the GeForce RTX 2070 FE. With regards to connectivity, we can see dual DisplayPort, HDMI, DVI-I, and USB-C ports. There is also a dedicated 8-in power connector found on the card. GeForce RTX 2060 sightings have become frequent in recent weeks. Just today we saw leaked images of the Zotac Gaming GeForce RTX 2060 Amp and the Gaming GeForce RTX 2060 Twin Fan, which not surprisingly look very similar to Zotac's GeForce RTX 2070 Mini....

Well, what do we have here? It looks as though a Chinese hardware OEM has jumped the gun by dishing out some specs on NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce RTX Mobility lineup. The manufacturer in question is CJSCOPE, and the company has revealed specs for its HX-950 GX (15-inch) and HX-970 GX (17-inch) gaming notebooks. According to the company, there will be three Turing SKUs available (at least initially), represented by “Mobility” versions of the GeForce RTX 2060, GeForce RTX 2070 and GeForce RTX 2080. All of the GPUs use the Mobile PCI Express Module (MXM) interface and will be used in rather bulky machines using desktop-class Intel Core i9 processors (which means that... Read more...
NVIDIA and its industry partners are pushing the benefits of real-time ray tracing in games, of which the company's GeForce RTX series graphics cards are equipped to handle. They're comparably expensive, though, and at least for right now there is limited support for ray-traced rendering. That will change in time. In the meantime, rumors are swirling that NVIDIA is getting ready to release new GTX (not RTX) cards at lower price points. It looks like there will be multiple models, if the rumors turn out to be true. For example, a few days ago there was talk of a GeForce GTX 1160 Ti or GeForce GTX 1160 (non-Ti) based on a version of Turing (TU116) that doesn't offer any RT cores, as those would... Read more...
Dating back to even before NVIDIA launched its GeForce RTX series, there were rumors that some of its next-generation cards (which are now current generation) would lack real-time ray tracing hardware, and carry the "GTX" moniker instead of RTX. We haven't seen that yet, though a fresh rumor suggests that more GTX cards are actually being developed. Early speculation suggested NVIDIA might release a GeForce GTX 2060 model with the RT cores disabled. The logic behind the idea was that the lower end GPU wouldn't be have enough muscle to process real-time ray tracing effects even with the RT cores enabled, though that might not be the case. It now looks like there will be a GeForce RTX 2060 instead... Read more...
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 happen at CES, though? We can't say for certain, though as the rumor goes, NVIDIA's RTX Mobility... 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 performance and 11 gigarays or ray tracing performance. "Turing is NVIDIA’s biggest advance...

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 GeForce RTX series—GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, GeForce RTX 2080, and GeForce RTX 2070. We know the card... 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 and efficiency needed for compute-intensive workloads at scale." NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang At SC18... Read more...
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 cards will have 2304 CUDA cores with base and boost GPU clocks coming in at 1410MHz and 160MHz respectively.... 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 glory. Today though, we can finally reveal how the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and GeForce RTX 2080... 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 the Turing GPU microarchitecture were kept closer to the vest and revealed only to smaller group of... 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 NVIDIA claiming up to 40X better low-latency throughput compared to Intel's Xeon Gold 6140 CPU.

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 games. Gaming laptops is a thriving category, and there is evidence to suggest that a mobile GeForce...

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...

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...

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, NVIDIA claimed that RTX was the most monumental shift in graphics since the introduction of CUDA...

Most of the information surrounding NVIDIA's next round of consumer cards has been focused on the GeForce RTX 2080, which the company is expected to announce on Monday, August 20, a day before Gamescom 2018 kicks off. There will be other Turing cards, though, and one of them has seemingly made an appearance on Futuremark's 3DMark benchmarking database. Well, maybe. The database entry points to a "GTX 2060 5gb," which immediately triggers a red flag to us. Unless NVIDIA has been faking everyone out, it will use the "RTX" branding for its next generation Turing cards for consumers, just as it has done with its recently announced Quadro RTX cards. Real-time ray-tracing figures to be a point of emphasis,... Read more...
NVIDIA's GeForce RTX series of graphics cards isn't supposed to be officially unveiled until August 20th, but we're already getting our first look at retail cards that will be shipping soon. MSI tends to be a bit "leaky" when it comes to new product releases, and the GeForce RTX 2080 is no exception. An alleged box shot has leaked that shows the GeForce RTX 2080 Gaming X Trio, complete with a triple-fan cooling system. For those familiar with MSI's graphics offerings, this setup is very similar to the company's current-generation GTX 1080 and GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X Trio cards. The box also confirms customized LED lighting effects and 8GB of onboard DDR6 memory. Moving on, another product that... Read more...
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...
