Nvidia have announced their next all new GPU series, RTX, which is built upon their Turing architecture, which fuses next-generation shaders with real-time ray tracing and all-new AI capabilities.
This new hybrid graphics capability represents the biggest generational leap ever in gaming GPUs. Turing – which delivers 6x more performance than its predecessor, Pascal – redefines the PC as the ultimate gaming platform, with new features and technologies that deliver 4K HDR gaming at 60 frames per second on even the most advanced titles.
“Turing opens up a new golden age of gaming, with realism only possible with ray tracing, which most people thought was still a decade away,” said Jensen Huang, founder and CEO of NVIDIA, speaking before Gamescom, the world’s largest gaming expo. “The breakthrough is a hybrid rendering model that boosts today’s computer graphics with the addition of lightning-fast ray-tracing acceleration and AI. RTX is going to define a new look for computer graphics. Once you see an RTX game, you can’t go back.”Games such as Battlefield V and Shadow of the Tomb Raider will support the new cards, below is a single screen from each game, showcasing how things can look, be sure to view them in full screen, to catch all the details.
