Gamescom 2018 has been given an fantastic start from Nvidia by announcing their new high-end graphics cards, the GeForce RTX 2070, RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti. The Turing GPU architecture is the first generation of graphics card that offers real-time ray tracing performance, and evidently, the new technology has Nvidia's board partners excited. The RTX 2080 will jump from 2,560 to 2,944 CUDA cores, up 15 percent. The next generation graphics cards were announced today during a pre-Gamescom 2018 live stream from Cologne, Germany.
Later this week, meanwhile, be sure to check out our sister site, IGN, which will stream gameplay demos, developer interviews, and more from the show from Tuesday, Aug. 21 to Thursday, Aug. 23 beginning at 9 a.m. ET each day.
Because you need to calculate a ray of light for each and every pixel on your camera, which is your screen, ray tracing is extremely computationally intensive compared to standard rendering techniques.
Putin set to attend Austrian foreign minister's wedding
Merkel and Putin have met and spoken by phone numerous times since she became chancellor in 2005. The invitation, he said , undermined the West in its dispute with Putin.
And it all looks rather stunning in the demos shown on stage, though maybe less so in the post-show capture session pushing the new RTX 2080 Ti to its limits. (For an example, see the plane in the picture above from the Battlefield V game.) Generating lifelike reflections, refractions, and other effects requires considerable computing power, which has held ray tracing back in consumer gaming. The RTX 2080 drops performance to 8 Giga Rays per second, 60T RTX-OPS, and a 8GB frame buffer, and it will start at $699 excluding tax.
With the new Turing GPU based GeForce RTX 20 series lineup, NVIDIA is going to offer two key things, first is a brand new dual-axial fan-based cooling solution and the other thing is a factory overclock out of the box.
Real Madrid want Chelsea star Marcos Alonso
Atletico Madrid are the first Europa League winners to go on to win the Uefa Super Cup since they did so against Chelsea in 2012. Spanish giants Real Madrid have switched their attention to Chelsea full-back Marcos Alonso after the Super Cup defeat.
Earlier this year, Nvidia unveiled a showcase of real-time ray-tracing using Phasma and some Stormtroopers from the Star Wars franchise.
You can pre-order "Founder Editions" of the all three graphics cards right now via the NVIDIA website. He revealed that the demo was a costly demonstration - upwards of $10,000 (USD) - and was powered by four GPUs along with help from Microsoft and the Unreal Engine 4 but the public reaction was that they wanted to see it within games consoles.
United States woman who shot herself receives face transplant
Although she survived, she had lost her forehead, nose and sinuses. "I felt so guilty that I had put my family through such pain". Her brother remembers the first thought that crossed his mind when he saw her at the time, "her face is gone".
