Nvidia unveils Turing-based Quadro RTX family
17 August, 2018, 18:00
With Turing and Quadro RTX proving accurate, and real-time ray tracing being pushed so hard by the graphics industry, it's very possible that Nvidia's more potent GeForce cards could indeed adopt RT cores and the RTX branding.
Huang said the Turing architecture is the "Holy Grail of computer graphics" and its most important innovation in more than a decade, and the greatest leap since the invention of the CUDA GPU in 2006.
NVIDIA today reinvented computer graphics with the launch of the NVIDIA Turing™ GPU architecture. "Hybrid rendering will change the industry, opening up wonderful possibilities that enhance our lives with more lovely designs, richer entertainment and more interactive experiences".
Ray tracing is what makes shadows and light render more realistically in a computer-generated scene but it's a hard effect to obtain in real-time as it requires substantial computing power. Ray tracing was a major component of Nvidia's Turing architecture announcement at Siggraph.
Nvidia says Turing can render graphics 6x faster than its Pascal-based chips.
The Quadro RTX Server will be a combination of the new RTXGPUs and Quadro Infinity software. "This means we can iterate faster, more frequently and with higher quality settings".
"We have been able to operate and optimise performance across the stack, removing bottlenecks, and creating new ideas that break Moore's law".
The Turing architecture's ray-tracing engine is powered by new "RT Cores" that are used to accelerate computing operations to determine how light can interact with its environment in a 3-D space. Indeed, the new RT cores allow ray tracing to perform at 25x that of the company's previous Pascal architecture. Other applications include "denoising", resolution scaling and video retiming.
"We would recommend investors not let any choppiness in a clearly transitional period distract from what we expect to be a powerful upgrade cycle when Turing launches this Fall", he said.
NVIDIAannounced its first Turing architecture-based GPUs, which enables designers and artists to render photorealistic scenes in real time, add new AI-based capabilities to their workflows, and enjoy fluid interactivity with complex models and scenes.
These capabilities are brought together by Nvidia's RTX development platform, which supports ray-tracing APIs, including Microsoft's DirectX Raytracing, Khronos' Vulkan and Nvidia's own OptiX, that have been optimized for Turing.
The new Quadro cards will be available starting in this year's fourth quarter. He believes it's all part of Nvidia's broader mission to grab market share away from chip giant Intel. The same day, YouTuber AdoredTV published a video claiming that Nvidia's next high-end GeForce GPUs would be called the RTX 2080 and RTX 2070, ditching the long-standing "GTX" moniker.
The Trump administration is due to impose similar increases on an additional $16 billion of Chinese imports on Tuesday. On the same day, Turkey's imposition of tariffs on 266.5 million dollars of USA goods took effect.
Google Pixel 3 XL has been leaked in a white colour variant with a glass back design, which hints at wireless charging support. The video also reveals that the retail box features accessories that will be bundled with Google's next flagship product.
"The initial reaction emerging economies usually take in a currency crisis is to dip into their foreign reserves". He had been in jail for nearly 20 months when a court in July ordered him moved to house arrest.
He added Manigault may have breached security clearance protocol and broken the law by recording in the Situation Room. In response to her media tour, the White House has painted Manigault Newman as a vengeful, untrustworthy opportunist.
A Trump tweet last week announcing a doubling of aluminum and steel tariffs for Turkey triggered the rout in the currency markets. U.S. treasury secretary Steven Mnuchin yesterday said to Mr Trump that further sanctions are ready to be put in place.
The Italian fire service said that the viaduct, located in an industrial area in the west of the city, collapsed at around noon. Autostrade said work to reinforce the slab under the road surface was going on at the time of the collapse.
He said: "Having the armband, it's not like "oh, I will show that I am a real captain and have to do extra work". Pogba scored as France beat Croatia 4-2 in the final to win the World Cup in July for the second time.
This ban, which many thought could have killed the company, was quickly reverted once President Trump intervened. Obviously, being banned from selling to the U.S. government is a significant blow to these companies.
The second is that Erdogan would have to bury his hatchet with the United States, which remains the IMF's largest shareholder. Although Turkey's currency rose Tuesday, the war of words with the USA that helped trigger the crisis continues.
Trump cancels $92M parade, cites cost, says maybe next year
An extravagant military parade planned by President Trump for November in Washington DC has been put on hold until next year. But what is new is that his planned military parade will cost US taxpayers exactly $80 million more than expected.
Archbishop defends himself ahead of child sex abuse report
Bishop Edward Burns of Dallas also says he feels anger and pain about the report and understands it is much worse for the victims. Both have further polarized the church on homosexuality, celibacy and whether laypeople should have more power.
USA crude posts 6th straight weekly loss
With strong global demand and if the fears of Turkish economic contagion are overblown , we could see a very tight oil market. China , engaged in simmering trade disputes with the United States, has shown no signs of retreat in the face of US pressure.
Jonny Bairstow 'delighted' with Ben Stokes affray verdict
His wife, Clare, cried when the not guilty verdicts were returned while Stokes closed his eyes with relief and then looked up. He said his memory of the evening was "incomplete" because of the head injury he suffered when he was knocked out by Stokes.
Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin is seriously ill, say reports
Branded the Queen of Soul for her ground-breaking voice, the iconic singer has battled a string of health problems in later years. Last year Franklin announced her plans to retire from touring in February 2017, so that she could more time with family.

Barcelona win Spanish Super Cup after late penalty save
MF Arturo Vidal , N/R - Came on for match-winner Dembele in the 86th minute to make his debut but had no time to have any impact. Barcelona levelled a minute before the break, when Gerard Pique turned in the rebound after Lionel Messi's free-kick hit a post.
