NVIDIA's new Turing architecture could make life much easier for video producers

NVIDIA's new Turing architecture could make life much easier for video producers

In fact it's one of the furthest things Nvidia makes from a consumer card at all, but it's a massively impressive piece of technology regardless. The new generation of chips designed by an American technology company - Nvidia Corp., has been aimed at assisting the growth the businesses among film makers and other graphics experts.

That might sound like a made up unit of measuring performance, but Nvidia claims Turing can process real-time ray tracing 25-times faster than the previous Pascal architecture.

The announcement added a fourth major milestone, he said.

Earlier this year, NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA) announced a new set of "RTX" features that would include support for advanced ray tracing. "All this horsepower and performance is following the road to real-time photorealism with incredible amounts of geometry in a scene, physically-based materials, simulated physics, facial animation and character animation". For the most part, clues are hidden in the messages and usernames of gamers in featured in the video, and it's definitely worth watching to spot them for yourself (warning: you may get seriously hyped up). "Simulating light for photorealism has been pursued as the holy grail of computer graphics since Turner Whitted first wrote about it in 1979".

As to what specific kinds of applications we might see getting built off Nvidia's new GPUs, Peddie said the impact would be widespread, covering everything from acoustics to medical diagnosis and even astrophysics.

Three new cards were announced, the Quadro RTX 8000, 600 and 5000. Capable of 500 trillion tensor operations per second, the processors can boost AI features such as resolution and scaling. Quadro Infinity lets multiple users access a single GPU through virtual workstations which the company said will "dramatically increase the density of the data center" saving both space and power.

The Turing Architecture will support two versions of SLI support, for a lack of a better term.

Software-wise, Turing includes a plug-in architecture for deep learning and offers interoperability between rasterisation, ray tracing, compute and AI. The focus of yesterday's Nvidia event was to introduce "ray tracing" to its GPU line-up. NVIDIA states that Turing has RT cores for accelerating ray traces and Tensor Cores for AI inferencing.

According to Nvidia CEO, Jensen Huang, Nvidia Turing is the most important GPU innovation in over a decade that will change the industry or sure. "Nvidia RTX brings accelerated workflows to this market", said Huang. "This will completely change how our artists work".

NVIDIA showed off an Unreal Engine demo in order to showcase the product's real-time raytracing, which you can view below. The top of the line Quadro RTx 8000 comes for a whopping $10000.
