Review: Ray-tracing, plenty of performance and bright future for gaming
Back at a dedicated event during Gamescom 2018 in Cologne, Germany, Nvidia officially unveiled the new Geforce RTX series and the Turing GPU, but only gave a glimpse of what is coming and what it will mean for future gaming, and that future is bright in our book.
Just hope the drivers work
Nvidia is working on a fix for one of the major problems of using AI for brain scans.
Darksiders III, SCUM, and more
Nvidia is pushing hard to bring as many developers on the RTX train and while support for Nvidia Ray Tracing might be limited to a couple of titles at launch, Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) support is gaining much more ground with nine new titles added to the list.
A total of eight water blocks for reference design cards
EK Water Blocks is obviously quite happy with Nvidia's upcoming Geforce RTX graphics card lineup launch as the company has prepared no less than eight EK Vector RTX full-cover water blocks designed to fit those reference design RTX graphics cards.
15.6-inch screen, up to Core i9, and GTX 1050 Ti
Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 has been the favorite business-class notebook for quite some time and its latest version got a serious update with a larger screen, CPU update, and discrete graphics, courtesy of Nvidia.
Tulipmania over, perhaps
It won't come as a surprise to regular Fudzilla readers, but market research figures have confirmed mixed fortiunes for the big three GPU vendors in their second quarter sales.
It is especially confident about its new chips
Nvidia is so confident about its RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti cards it is leaning on magazines to find out who will be review them and insisting on five year NDAs.
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.
Lack of competition dictates
Lack of competition is what allows Nvidia to price products however high it wants to and even lets its AIB partners go a little bit crazier with their custom cards. RTX is definitely a step forward in computer graphics but it will take time for RayTracing to become really necessary and get down to reasonably priced markets.
Battlefield V, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and more
Preparing for the availability of its first Geforce RTX 20-series graphics cards, Nvidia has also released all the gaming trailers and demos that use some of the RTX technologies, like the Ray Tracing.
