Remember how fast the GeForce GTX 980 was two years ago? Well, the new GeForce GTX 1060 promises to deliver GTX 980-level performance with twice the energy efficiency in VR.

The GeForce GTX 1060 supports the NVIDIA Simultaneous Multi-Projection technology, which allows it to seamlessly project a single image simultaneously to both eyes, yielding a 3X VR graphics performance improvement over previous generation GPUs.

[adrotate banner=”5″]

This allows GeForce GTX 1060 users to play VR games with higher levels of detail, without sacrificing performance or quality, for a more realistic, immersive experience.

Simultaneous Multi-Projection is being integrated into the world’s biggest game engines, Unreal Engine and Unity. More than 30 games are already in development, including Unreal Tournament, Poolnation VR, Everest VR, Obduction, Adr1ft and Raw Data.

The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 also supports NVIDIA VRWorks, a software developer kit that allows developers to intertwine what users see, hear and touch with the physical behaviour of the environment –convincing them that their virtual experience is real.

NVIDIA VR Funhouse will be available for free later this month from Valve’s Steam digital distribution service. Developed on Epic Games’ Unreal Engine 4, VR Funhouse will work on the GeForce GTX 1080, 1070 and 1060 GPUs and HTC Vive VR headsets. It will also be open sourced to developers and artists so they can create their own VR Funhouse attractions.

The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 also supports the NVIDIA Ansel technology, a powerful game-capture tool that allows gamers to explore, capture and share the artistry of gaming in ways never before possible. With Ansel, users can compose the gameplay shots they want, pointing the camera in any direction, from any vantage point within a gaming world, and then capture 360-degree stereo photospheres for viewing with a VR headset or Google Cardboard.

Gamers will be able to experience Ansel for themselves with Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst next week, and Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, later this month. Many more Ansel-enabled games are in development, including Epic Games’ Fortnite, Paragon and Unreal Tournament; Cyan Worlds’ Obduction; Thekla’s The Witness; Boss Key Productions’ Lawbreakers; Ubisoft’s Tom Clancy’s The Division; and the highly anticipated No Man’s Sky from Hello Games.

The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 features 1,280 CUDA cores, 6 GB of GDDR5 memory running at 8 Gbps and a boost clock of 1.7 GHz, which NVIDIA claims can be easily overclocked to 2 GHz for additional performance.

[adrotate banner=”5″]

Across the top gaming titles, GeForce GTX 1060 is on average 15% faster and over 75 percent more power efficient than the closest competitive product (the Radeon RX 480?) at stock speeds.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 custom boards will be available starting July 19 from NVIDIA GeForce partners, including ASUS, Colorful, EVGA, Gainward, Galaxy, Gigabyte, Innovision 3D, MSI, Palit, PNY and Zotac. The MSRP will start at US$249.

The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 Founder’s Edition board – designed and built by NVIDIA – will be available starting July 19 for US$299. The GeForce GTX 1060 Founder’s Edition is crafted with premium materials and components, including a faceted die-cast aluminum body machine finished for strength and rigidity and a thermal solution designed to run cool and quiet.

 

Like the GeForce GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 Founder’s Edition boards, a dual-FETs power supply is used to improve power efficiency, along with a low impedance power delivery network and custom voltage regulators.

NVIDIA Ansel In-Game Screenshot Technology Explained

On May 6, NVIDIA revealed the first gaming GPU based on their new Pascal architecture – the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080. The GeForce GTX 1080 not only boasts the latest Pascal architecture, it is also fabricated on the new 16 nm FinFET process technology and uses the new GDDR5X memory.

Although we were not in Austin, Texas for the official launch, NVIDIA invited us to an exclusive tech briefing in Bangkok on May 20th. While these hardware specifications are well-known by now, this was a technical briefing that would give us greater insights into the other new technologies that are being introduced with the GeForce GTX 1080.

NVIDIA brought in the big guns for the tech briefing and demonstration – Nick Stam (NVIDIA Senior Technical Marketing Director), Jeff Yen (NVIDIA Senior Technical Marketing Manager) and John Gillooly (NVIDIA Technical Marketing Manager). We will be posting a series of videos of their presentations, divided into topic-specific chunks. Today, we are going to look at the new NVIDIA Ansel in-game screenshot technology.

 

NVIDIA Ansel Explained

NVIDIA Ansel not just an in-game screenshot utility. It actually detaches you, the player, from the in-game limitations so you can capture your in-game shots in ways not possible before. You can also adjust the screenshots with a variety of post-process filters, or capture HDR images in super high resolution. You can even create 360-degree screenshots to display on your VR headset!

Here is a summary of NVIDIA Ansel’s key features :

 

Free Camera – Activating NVIDIA Ansel pauses the game and enables the Free Camera capability. This allows you to escape the first- or third-person perspective and compose your scene in any position, alignment or range, before taking unlimited high-resolution screenshots.

Super Resolution – Selecting the High Resolution option allows you to capture screenshots that are tens of thousands of pixels in size. This allows you to downsample the screenshot later, or zoom in to capture detail cannot be seen with the naked eye.

Post-Process Filters – NVIDIA Ansel comes with brightness, vignette, sketch, colour enhancer and special FX filters for added creativity. Users can even create and share their own special FX filters.

OpenEXR Capture – You can export Ansel screenshots in Industrial Light & Magic’s OpenEXR format so you can adjust the exposure, colour and levels in post-processing without creating artifacts.

360 Capture – This option allows you to create and share 360 degree screenshots for VR headsets.
