Nvidia Unveils Turing Architecture For More Powerful GPUs

NVIDIA Turing Architecture

However, the new graphics cards could also be placed as a complementary product line-up to the existing GTX 10-series - with Nvidia continuing to release standard GTX-branded products.

Real-time ray-tracing of objects and environments with physically accurate shadows, reflections, refractions and global illumination.

As to what specific kinds of applications we might see getting built off Nvidia's new GPUs, Peddie said the impact would be widespread, covering everything from acoustics to medical diagnosis and even astrophysics. For example, Porsche and Epic Games debuted "The Speed of Light", a fully dynamic Porsche 911 Speedster concept cinematic made using Nvidia's RTX technology and Unreal Engine.

Huang says not only will Turing and the Quadro RTX make incredible games today and in the future, it opens access to the $250B visual effects industry that until now could not use GPU acceleration because their requirements are photorealism with global illumination, physically-based materials and to hold large detailed assets.

NVIDIA's Quadro RTX 8000, Quadro RTX 6000, and Quadro RTX 5000 GPUs will be the first to take advantage of the Turing architecture. Tensor Cores, on the other hand, are created to accelerate deep learning training and inferencing, and they can enable new artificial intelligence features that allow developers to integrate graphics processing into applications with pre-trained neural networks.

At the Delhi airport, she was seen removing her ring and pocketing it so that media doesn't get a glimpse of it. The actress is also serving as a co-producer on the project.

The makers of the world's most widely used design and creative applications are already working closely with NVIDIA to bring the power of Quadro RTX to customers. "NVIDIA is delivering real-time ray tracing five years before we had thought possible".

Turing replaces Nvidia's previous architecture Pascal and ushers in a number of important advances, the most important being "ray tracing", which is a technique for rendering graphics far more realistically than its older technology could ever achieve.

NVIDIA's new hardware would revolutionize the way 50 million artists and designers work, by enabling them to render photo-realistic scenes in real time. The top of the line Quadro RTx 8000 comes for a whopping $10000. The lower-end RTX 5000 packs 3,702 CUDA cores, 384 Tensor Cores and 16GB of memory and will sell for $2,300.

Nvidia will also incorporate the new cards into its new Quadro RTX Server; a render farm which will offer access to a GPU for multiple users, transforming it into a datacentre-like setup for professional rendering jobs.

In addition, the new cards also feature support for neural network training tools to help develop AI applications, USB-C hardware support and the ability to network two GPUs together for increased memory capacity, as well as a range of features to support VR content creation.
