NVIDIA RTX – September Newsletter
Matt Moy, RAVE Senior Systems Engineer elaborated: “The most significant and exciting advancements in technology often come as a result of discovering a whole new approach. Generally speaking, if we can see a 50% performance improvement between architectures we are pretty happy. Seeing NVIDIA demonstrate a 600% improvement in ray tracing performance with their new Turing GPUs makes it abundantly clear that this innovation will be disruptive to the way we render graphics going forward.
NVIDIA’s focus and success in optimizing their GPUs for AI, Scientific Computing, and Data Analytics have allowed for them to make an even greater investment in the core technology that is also used for rendering graphics.”
It runs on NVIDIA Volta and Turing architectures that can take advantage of NVLink on Quadro GPUs. The latest products to support NVIDIA RTX are the Quadro RTX 8000, RTX 6000, and RTX 5000. For more on this new product, check out NVIDIA’s blog.
