Nvidia's new technology aims to give visual effects industry a boost

NVIDIA Officially Announces Turing GPU Architecture at SIGGRAPH 2018

Gamers disappointed that Nvidia didn't unveil a consumer GPU when it unveiled its enterprise-centric Turing architecture at Siggraph 2018 will soon be in for a treat. Nvidia has just posted a teaser YouTube video hinting that it could unveil its next consumer-based GeForce RTX series soon.

The Turing GPU architecture features new RT cores to accelerate ray tracing and new Tensor cores for AI inferencing, Nvidia said.

Three new cards were announced, the Quadro RTX 8000, 600 and 5000.

The company has announced that Quadro professional workstation graphics cards with Turing technology will be made available in Q4. The new Turing technology can capitalize on this with promises of a new generation of hybrid rendering that enables cinematic-quality interactive experiences, incredible new effects powered by neural networks and fluid interactivity on highly complex models.

Chinese official to visit U.S. to resume talks to end trade war
Markets around the world are up on news that the USA and China are going to be talking again about their trade relations. Previous rounds of talks between the two sides failed to make much progress, resulting in the outbreak of a trade war.

Real-time ray-tracing of objects and environments with physically accurate shadows, reflections, refractions and global illumination. For the a year ago, Nvidia has been demonstrating ways to dramatically improve the speed of ray-traced renders by using machine-learning techniques, but Tensor-derived tools may end up being of as much interest to effects-savvy editors as to VFX artists.

Though perhaps best known for creating the GPUs that power high-end gaming PCs, these new units are professional-grade cards designed to handle intensive 3D-modelling and rendering workloads for users like graphic designers and 3D artists.

Nvidia has published a teaser video for its new range of gaming graphics cards, suggesting they will be unveiled next week. We'll be watching for more details as they arise.

The RT Cores can churn through ray-tracing performance at a staggering 25x faster than previous Pascal GPUs, Nvidia claims.

Turing also features an update to SMs, which is a collection of CUDA cores, similar to how an AMD CU is a collection of streaming processors (or cores).

The Quadro RTX 5000, 6000 and 8000 graphics processors will be the first processors to launch with the company's new architecture, offering higher-bandwidth processing provided by up to 4,608 CUDA cores and support for high-bandwidth GDDR6 memory.

Nvidia also built the new architecture to run AI-powered applications that can both shade and smooth out graphics for high-quality image generation.

"We would recommend investors not let any choppiness in a clearly transitional period distract from what we expect to be a powerful upgrade cycle when Turing launches this Fall", he said.
