Nvidia launches new chip
Nvidia has released a new chip to help expand its business among movie makers and other graphics professionals. The chip, named Turing, is an improvement in “ray tracing” or the ability to simulate how light bounces around in a visual scene. With this new chip, designers will be able to make changes in real time instead of having to wait while the chip churns through data.
“Turing is Nvidia’s most important innovation in computer graphics in more than a decade,” says Jensen Huang, founder and CEO of Nvidia.
These Quadro RTX cards a not intended for gaming. The cost of the Quadro RTX 8000 will be around $10,000 when released at the end of the year. It will have a GPU with 48gb of GDDR6 memory, 4608 CUDA cores, and 576 Tensor cores.
