First dedicated Ray Tracing benchmark
As announced earlier, UL Benchmarks has now officially launched its first dedicated ray tracing benchmark, the 3DMark Port Royal.
3DMark Port Royal
UL Benchmarks has announced that its newest benchmark for ray tracing will be coming in January 2019, dubbed 3DMark Port Royal.
Great that they can do Ray Tracing
Graphics experts very close to what's happening have shared an interesting thesis that helped Nvidia justify the transistors spent in Turing RT cores. It is all about AI and the next generation data workloads.
Unreal Engine for render in videos
There is a new company called the Ryff and a few industry veterans dared to change the product placing market introducing a realistic rendering. Instead of remaking the video for every single market or target audience, they decided to use 3D rendering to replace the existing objects in the video.
Spotted in graphics options menu
CD Projekt Red raised a lot of attention with its latest gameplay demo video, showing some impressive graphics and gameplay, but judging from the alleged leak, it appears it will also support Nvidia Hairworks and Ray Tracing when it launches.
Some games will only get DLSS
Following the previous announcement of the new Geforce RTX series, Nvidia has now disclosed a few more details about which games will actually adopt Ray Tracing and which will focus on Deep Learning Super-Sampling.
Geforce Partner Program RIP
Geforce Partner Program is officially terminated, as of last Friday, and it makes Nvidia look guilty as hell. Nvidia - a massively dominating player - has close to 75 percent of discrete market share, but this varies up and down from quarter to quarter. Some report that regulators got involved and started looking at GPP. Once you have 75 percent plus market share in anything, you don't want regulators to knock on your doors.
The one after 2018 Turing
Fudzilla wants to make something clear. Ampere is not a mining GPU, it is not a gaming, and it is not an AI-focused Tensor Core GPU, it is all of the above, and comes after Turing 2018 GPU.
