"With the high-performing graphics architecture of Turing-based Quadro RTX GPUs for rendering in the datacenter, we are unlocking extraordinary capabilities for our customers to power new creative experiences", said Bill Mannel, vice president and general manager of HPC and AI Solutions at Hewlett Packard Enterprise.
In terms of the Turing architecture, Nvidia describes it as "the greatest leap" since the CUDA GPU was revealed in 2006. Sounds promising, so what is it? "Hybrid rendering will change the industry, opening up fantastic possibilities that enhance our lives with more attractive designs, richer entertainment and more interactive experiences".
"This Turing architecture honestly makes every workstation on the market obsolete, or soon to be".
Turkish lira weakens as USA warns of new sanctions over detained pastor
Washington wants the evangelical Christian freed but Turkish officials say the case is a matter for the courts. Turkey shot back on Friday, threatening to respond if the United States levied further sanctions.
Now, these RT cores will perform the ray calculations themselves at what NVIDIA is claiming is up to 10 GigaRays/second, or up to 25X the performance of the current Pascal architecture.
The Turing architecture's ray-tracing engine is powered by new "RT Cores" that are used to accelerate computing operations to determine how light can interact with its environment in a 3-D space.
Nvidia says Turing can render graphics 6x faster than its Pascal-based chips.
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.
Dhaka 2nd least liveable city in world
The annual EIU rankings consider factors such as stability, healthcare, education, infrastructure, culture and environment. Overall, the survey found that almost half of the cities saw their liveability ranking improve over the past year.
Whitted's algorithm - multi-bounce recursive ray-tracing - is intensively computationally heavy. "Ray tracing has been the Holy Grail of computer graphics for decades, and once it gets fully understood and investigated, all kinds of new applications will emerge".
Nvidia rolled out its newest generation of chip technology, called Turing after the legendary British computer scientist Alan Turing. "With up to 48GB capacity, our GPUs accommodate the largest models and scenes, and increase application performance, enabling professionals to design, develop and deliver much better results with faster turnaround".
New and enhanced technologies to improve the performance of VR applications, including Variable Rate Shading, Multi-View Rendering and VRWorks Audio.
Quadro RTX GPUs will be available starting in the fourth quarter. The server, through the new software, will allow several users to access a single GPU for their virtual workstations.
Lawsuits accuse Tesla's Musk of fraud over tweets, going-private proposal
After adjusting for inflation, that's more than the record-setting buyout of RJR Nabisco that closed in 1989. There is even the suggestion that Musk's tweets about taking Tesla private were in response to the bets.
