Capable of 500 trillion tensor operations per second, the processors can boost AI features such as resolution and scaling. Changes include an integer execution unit executing in parallel with the floating point datapath, and a new unified cache architecture with double the bandwidth of the previous generation. "Combined with new graphics technologies such as variable rate shading, the Turing SM achieves unprecedented levels of performance per core".
First implementation of ultra-fast Samsung 16Gb GDDR6 memory to support more complex designs, massive architectural datasets, 8K movie content and more. Interactive graphics driven by GPUs offer speed and responsiveness. Other key features of that chip include support for NVLink - to connect multiple cards together - and VirtualLink, which is used to connect virtual reality headsets using a single USB-C cable.
"We have been able to operate and optimise performance across the stack, removing bottlenecks, and creating new ideas that break Moore's law".
Ray Tracing, however, isn't the only breakthrough technology that the new Quadro RTx chips boast of. All that power comes at a cost, and the Quadro RTX 8000 flagship will be priced at $10,000 when it ships.
"NVidia started with its pursuit to produce the most awesome imagery within one 30th of a second, at the price-point consumers would pay for".
Meteor shower lights up skies over Bosnia

Aside from the above-mentioned applications of NVIDIA's newest Turing GPUs, what industries do you believe could also benefit from its capabilities? Instead, we're looking at new tools for professionals, that will cost up to $10,000 when it launches later this year.
"Dell Precision workstations strive to bring the latest in technology to creators, engineers and data scientists to enable workflows previously thought impossible".
At a gathering of graphics professionals on Monday, Nvidia rolled out its newest generation of chip technology, called Turing after the legendary British computer scientist Alan Turing. He said the firm is "adding NVIDIA to our Top Picks into the Turing gaming cycle". "AI-based capabilities can allow creators and developers to simulate and interact with their creations in ways not now possible", said Xavier Garcia, vice president and general manager of HP Z Workstations at HP Inc.
"We would recommend investors not let any choppiness in a clearly transitional period distract from what we expect to be a powerful upgrade cycle when Turing launches this Fall", he said.
If you've been holding off on upgrading a 10x0 or earlier card, you're about to be rewarded - at Gamescom next week, NVIDIA is expected to unveil the consumer cards based on the Turing architecture.
