In his keynote speech at the SIGGRAPH conference in Vancouver, British Columbia, NVIDIA CEO Jensen Hsun Huang revealed the company's eight-generation Turing GPU hardware that will reportedly push ray-tracing and AI to greater heights.
The first product to feature the new Turing technology is the NVIDIA Quadro RTX GPUs featuring the NVIDIA Quadro RTX 8000, Quadro RTX 6000, and Quadro RTX 5000 GPUs as well as a Quadro RTX server. "Hybrid rendering will change the industry, opening up awesome possibilities that enhance our lives with more handsome designs, richer entertainment and more interactive experiences".
Turing incorporates a number of new features and technologies, chief among them are new RT Cores that power real-time ray tracing. Nvidia reckons its new Quadro RTX chips can boost ray-tracing performance by up to 25 times that of its Pascal chips, performing the necessary calculations at speeds of up to 10 gigarays per second. Nvidia might also be making a new leap in gaming graphics cards as well, perhaps on the scale of Fermi to Kepler or Kepler to Maxwell, both of which were very large leaps in performance despite not always using a different process node.
The NVIDIA Quadro RTX 8000, Quadro RTX 6000 and Quadro RTX 5000 bring hardware-accelerated ray tracing, AI, advanced shading and simulation to creative professionals.
Thanks to Samsung's industry-leading 16Gb GDDR6 memory, end users can expect improved performance and energy efficiency in the widest array of graphics-intensive applications, including computer-aided design (CAD), digital content creation (DCC) and scientific visualization applications.
Turkey doubles tariffs on some US imports; lira rallies
Ankara imposed stiffer levies on U.S. cars, alcohol, coal and other products - $533 million in new tariffs - in response to U.S. President Donald Trump's imposition of doubled tariffs on Turkish steel and aluminum exported to the United States.
