[H]ardOCP: NVIDIA Unveils Turing GPU for the RTX Quadro Lineup

Going by these easter egg-style hints it seems awfully likely that a new GeForce GTX 2080 graphics card built on the new Turing GPU architecture will be the "spectacular surprise" revealed at Nvidia's Gamescom event.

Late last night, Nvidia officially launched the Turing architecture, which is featured in the new Quadro RTX series. It simulates how light interacts with virtual objects in a graphics render.

Samsung said that its memory will power all the new ray-tracing GPU models from Nvidia, including the Quadro RTX 8000, Quadro RTX 6000, and Quadro RTX 5000 GPUs, which will be available worldwide in October.

Nvidia's long-rumored Turing GPU architecture for next-generation graphics cards is finally official, and it's more than we could have hoped for. The new Turing technology can capitalize on this with promises of a new generation of hybrid rendering that enables cinematic-quality interactive experiences, awesome new effects powered by neural networks and fluid interactivity on highly complex models. But Nvidia promises real-time ray tracing, meaning there's no wait time for the cores to render the lighting of each frame.

The RT Cores can churn through ray-tracing performance at a staggering 25x faster than previous Pascal GPUs, Nvidia claims.

Nvidia is also making available its new RTX graphics platform for developers to make the most of the new chips.

Twitter suspends Infowars' Alex Jones for abuse
Much like Facebook , Twitter's policy calls for temporary suspension after an account repeatedly violates company rules. Twitter follows many other tech platforms in removing content from Jones and his news website InfoWars.

"This is a significant moment in the history of computer graphics", said Jon Peddie, CEO of analyst firm JPR.

Software-wise, Turing includes a plug-in architecture for deep learning and offers interoperability between rasterisation, ray tracing, compute and AI. "Nvidia RTX brings accelerated workflows to this market", said Huang. "This means we can iterate faster, more frequently and with higher quality settings. This will completely change how our artists work", said Michele Sciolette, chief technology officer, Cinesite.

The new family of graphics processing units, called the Quadro RTX, performs at up to "10 gigarays per second" with "16 teraflops of single-precision performance". Other applications include "denoising", resolution scaling and video retiming. The deep learning was trained using very high-quality images, Huang says.

Nvidia Turing's hybrid rendering capabilities are made possible by new RT cores for accelerating ray tracing and new Tensor Cores for AI inferencing, according to the company.

For PC gaming, that's a dramatic leap in visual fidelity. More information at http://nvidianews.nvidia.com/.

Quadro RTX GPUs are designed for the most demanding visual computing workloads, such as those used in film and video content creation; automotive and architectural design; and scientific visualization. Features, pricing, availability and specifications are subject to change without notice.
