At Gamescon 2018, NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang took the covers off NVIDIA Turing, and announced the NVIDIA GeForce RTX series, the first gaming GPUs based on the new NVIDIA Turing architecture and the NVIDIA RTX platform. Find out how Turing delivers new RTX hybrid graphics capabilities for the next-generation of games!
NVIDIA Turing Unleashes RTX Hybrid Graphics Capability!
NVIDIA Turing enables a new hybrid graphics capability, which fuses next-generation shaders with real-time ray tracing and all-new AI capabilities. This hybrid graphics capability represents the biggest generational leap ever in gaming capability.
NVIDIA Turing claims to deliver 6X more performance than its predecessor, Pascal, allowing it to deliver 4K HDR gaming at 60 frames per second on even the most advanced titles.
“Turing opens up a new golden age of gaming, with realism only possible with ray tracing, which most people thought was still a decade away,” said Jensen Huang, founder and CEO of NVIDIA. “The breakthrough is a hybrid rendering model that boosts today’s computer graphics with the addition of lightning-fast ray-tracing acceleration and AI. RTX is going to define a new look for computer graphics. Once you see an RTX game, you can’t go back.”
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX Family of Gaming GPUs
The new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, RTX 2080 and RTX 2070 GPUs are packed with features never before seen in a gaming GPU, including:
- New RT Cores to enable real-time ray tracing of objects and environments with physically accurate shadows, reflections, refractions, and global illumination.
- Turing Tensor Cores to perform lightning-fast deep neural network processing.
- New NGX neural graphics framework integrates AI into the overall graphics pipeline, enabling AI algorithms to perform amazing image enhancement and generation.
- New Turing shader architecture with Variable Rate Shading allows shaders to focus processing power on areas of rich detail, boosting overall performance.
- New memory system featuring ultra-fast GDDR6 with over 600 GB/s of memory bandwidth for high-speed, high-resolution gaming.
- NVIDIA NVLink, a high-speed interconnect that provides higher bandwidth (up to 100 GB/s) and improved scalability for multi-GPU configurations (SLI).
- Hardware support for USB Type-C and VirtualLink, a new open industry standard being developed to meet the power, display and bandwidth demands of next-generation VR headsets through a single USB-C connector.
- New and enhanced technologies to improve performance of VR applications, including Variable Rate Shading, Multi-View Rendering and VRWorks Audio.
