NVIDIA Turing Architecture

"Hybrid rendering will change the industry, opening up awesome possibilities that enhance our lives with more lovely designs, richer entertainment and more interactive experiences", says Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang.

While Nvidia hasn't revealed its next-gen Gaming GPUs but, it has revealed its Nvidia Turing architecture based Quadro RTX GPUs capable of Real-time Ray Tracing.

Ray tracing enables the superrealistic rendering of light and shadows in a computer-generated scene.

"Our goal to create fantastic imagery", said Huang. "Turing will reset the industry, opening up awesome creative possibilities that until recently were assumed to be years away". "Nvidia RTX brings accelerated workflows to this market", said Huang.


Turing is comprised in 3 sections: Tensor cores, CUDA cores, and finally the new RT core.

Nvidia released new Turing chip technology targeting film industries on Monday. Advanced ray tracing would jump-start a new generation of hyper-realistic graphics, but the only problem was there was no hardware to support it-until now.

Nvidia first showed off its new GPU's ray-tracing capabilities during the company's GPU Technology Conference in March through a computer generated imagery Star Wars clip created especially for the demonstration.

"This is a historic moment", Huang said. "Demand is still there, so it's just building up", Tibbils said. There has been speculation in the past that Nvidia will complement its GTX series with an RTX line, and that the two GPU families could exist together. As company CEO Huang said, the chips can deliver 'cinematic-quality interactive experiences, wonderful new effects powered by neural networks and fluid interactivity on highly complex models'. According to NVIDIA, both the RTX 8000 and RTX 6000 are capable of 10 GigaRays/sec while the RTX 5000 reaches 6 GigaRays/sec.


The Quadro RTX cards feature cutting-edge GDDR6 VRAM, an upgrade that memory suppliers have been hinting at for months.

Up to 100 GB/sec data transfer with NVLink, a brand new GPU connector so RTX cards can connect to the frame buffer in other FTX cards, effectively doubling the frame buffer capacity.

Nvidia's Gamescom event in Cologne on 20 August 2018 is set to be the stage for more details. "The initial price is usually high, but clearly they feel they can justify a lower price because they expect to sell a lot of them", said Enderle. "Compared to Pascal, Turing is 1.7x larger in terms of size / transistors", Caso said. Nvidia's previous Pascal processor has 11.8 billion transistors. They can also be used for rendering prototypes or objects in movies.
