NVIDIA’s RTX 20 Series is promising but unproven

Yesterday, NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang took the stage at Gamescom to talk about something he was clearly very hyped about. He introduced us all to the NVIDIA RTX 20 series, a range of new graphics cards that are capable of some very exciting things but have impressively hefty price tags to match. Much of Huang's presentation revolved around two compelling technologies: Ray tracing and, more briefly, deep learning super sampling.

Ray Tracing for everyone: Made simple today

Ray Tracing for everyone: Made simple today

Video games you play use rasterization while videos you watch use ray tracing - or that's the way it's been in the past. Ray tracing focuses on each pixel's color and how light in the scene made that color so. Rasterization focuses on the objects in the frame at any given time, deciding how light affects the color and brightness of objects therein. Rasterization can be very low-compute-power, while ray tracing is at the moment requires high-compute-power.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 leak: AI ray-tracing for the masses

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 leak: AI ray-tracing for the masses

With just a few hours away from NVIDIA’s grand but totally not unexpected unveiling of its GeForce 20 series video cards, one last leak arrives to complete the picture. And it might actually be the one most important one, at least for those who want a taste of that AI-powered ray-tracing that NVIDIA is promising with its new Turing architecture without going bankrupt. That would be the GeForce RTX 2070, which seems to be poised as the entry-level option for its new RTX platform.

GeForce RTX 2080 Ti specs confirm Nvidia’s next powerful video card

Graphics card maker Nvidia has a special event starting on Monday focusing on their GeForce line. It's been expected for some time that the company will be unveiling the new set of RTX 2080 video cards, and a new leak offering detailed specs all but confirms the upcoming reveal. Most interesting is that it seems Nvidia will be releasing both the base RTX 2080 and the more powerful Titanium model at roughly the same time, as opposed to several months apart like the company usually does.

Intel discrete graphics card still coming in 2020

Intel discrete graphics card still coming in 2020

Chip maker giant Intel has seen its kingdom slowly shrinking from the combined onslaught of ARM on the mobile side and AMD’s resurrection on the PC side. While it still has some things to boast about over its long-time rival, the one thing can’t claim is having a superior graphics solution the way AMD has ATI. At SIGGRAPH, Intel is reminding PC makers and users that it won’t be the status quo for too long. It also inadvertently reminded them that it’s not the first time Intel tried to come up with a discrete GPU of its own.

NVIDIA Quadro RTX bring Turing architecture real-time ray tracing

As technology evolves, so do users’ tastes and expectations. No longer are they satisfied with crude digital approximations of real-world objects and demand convincing and photorealistic renderings more than what current computing technology can provide. Unless they happen to have one of NVIDIA’s three new GPUs. Boasting to have brought technology that wasn’t expected until at least 2023, NVIDIA is announcing its newest Turing graphics architecture that mixes raw processing power and AI to provide real-time ray tracing capabilities.
