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...
