Nvidia teases GeForce RTX 2080 graphics card

NVIDIA Officially Announces Turing GPU Architecture at SIGGRAPH 2018

Translated, "Aqui" means "Here" and plopping the coordinates into Google Maps reveals a location in Cologne, Germany, possibly where Nvidia's "Gaming celebration" will be held. Despite my (misplaced) confidence that Nvidia wouldn't jump the gun and go straight to 20-series, the latest teaser vid makes a strong case than the next generation's launch flagship will be called the RTX 2080 and will be based on the Turing GPU architecture.

Company CEO and founder Jensen Huang took to the stage here at the annual ACM Siggraph conference to announce the new products before a packed hall of graphic artists and design professionals on August 13.

Additionally, the Quadro RTX 8000 which is the top end variant of the new GPU lineup comes equipped with 48GB of GDDR6 memory, 4608 CUDA cores, 576 Tensor cores and can deliver a ray tracing speed of 10 Giga rays/ second.

The Discord user names and messages featured in the video spell out the name "RTX 2080", pointing at a departure from the traditional "GTX" branding.

Nvidia has shared with the world its next game-changing GPU innovation which happens to be the world's first ray-tracing GPU. The cheapest of three, the Quadro RTX 5000 will retail for $2,300.

Arsenal hero Lehmann: Emery took charge at ideal time - for him
Emery has said his team must retain their personality and mentality to win at Chelsea . He has experience, he has quality, he has the capacity.

The advanced technique "Ray tracing" is new on the arena and is a way to render light and shadows more realistically in a computer-generated scene. But the dark era appears to be ending.

"This Turing architecture honestly makes every workstation on the market obsolete, or soon to be".

The timing of the two leaks, the weekend ahead of this Siggraph unveiling, seems significant.

Jensen kicked off the RTX Quadro cards by showing that now-famous Stormtrooper ray-tracing demo running in real time on a single Turing GPU with its Tensor Cores.

Thuli Madonsela joins prayers for 'gravely ill' Aretha Franklin
Her nephew, Tim Franklin , 60, told the celebrity website Radar that she was in hospice care at her home in Detroit . Rumors circulated that her condition placed her "near death", but her family has backed off that claim.

Nvidia has been among the leaders in improving ray tracing efficiency.

"We have been able to operate and optimise performance across the stack, removing bottlenecks, and creating new ideas that break Moore's law".

"AI and real-time ray tracing are transforming the way designers and artists work", said Amy Bunszel, senior vice president of Design & Creation Products at Autodesk.

The RT Cores can churn through ray-tracing performance at a staggering 25x faster than previous Pascal GPUs, Nvidia claims. Next is the Quadro RTX 6000 with 24GB of memory for $6,300.

Ray-traced graphics offer incredible realism.

Partial Solar Eclipse 2018
What is a solar eclipse? When are the next solar eclipses? Recognize that sleep should not occur during eclipse. In addition, the solar Eclipse causes the people and animals anxiety, can develop a state of inner dissonance.

An RTX server option will also be available - it will give datacenter -like access to a GPU in order for it to be used by multiple users, but there no word out on the cost for it just yet.
