Real-time ray tracing is headed to more games. That includes Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, the upcoming title slated for an October 25, 2019 release. In partnership with Activision and Infinity Ward, NVIDIA says the PC version of Modern Warfare will deliver the most immersive and photo-realistic experience, due to the addition of ray tracing and adaptive shading. "With the game’s October 25th release fast approaching, we can now reveal that the game is being enhanced with real-time ray-traced shadows, within both the single-player campaign and 2v2 Gunfight multiplayer mode," NVIDIA says. Here's a look at the first ray-traced trailer for Modern Warfare... NVIDIA has been working side-by-side... Read more...
One of the most popular games ever made is getting a big-time facelift. At Gamescom, NVIDIA announced it has been working with Mojang and Microsoft to bring real-time ray tracing to Minecraft, the world's best selling video game, transforming colorful, block-filled worlds into richer landscapes with realistic lighting effects. This is Minecraft as you have never seen it before, and perhaps never envisioned. Since Minecraft is not particularly demanding to begin with, NVIDIA has opted to refit the entire game with path tracing, a compute-intensive form of ray tracing. In other words, this is full-scene ray tracing and not a hybrid implementation. NVIDIA did the same thing with Quake II RTX, and... Read more...
Shares of NVIDIA jumped by more than 8 percent in early morning today, the result of renewed confidence by investors following the company's latest earnings report. While the numbers are still down overall from last year, NVIDIA's performance in the second quarter shows it is finally starting to recover from the cryptocurrency crash. "We achieved sequential growth across our platforms," said Jensen Huang, founder and CEO of NVIDIA. "Real-time ray tracing is the most important graphics innovation in a decade. Adoption has reached a tipping point, with NVIDIA RTX leading the way." Indeed, NVIDIA's $2.58 billion in revenue during the second quarter for its fiscal 2020 represents a 16 percent sequential...

The developers of AIDA64, a system diagnostic and auditing utility, may have tipped the pending launch of another GeForce RTX Super graphics card. While nothing is for certain, there is a curious entry in the changelog for the latest AIDA64 Extreme beta release that references an unreleased GeForce RTX built around a TU102 GPU. According to the changelog, the latest AIDA64 Extreme beta release can read "GPU information for NVIDIA GeForce RTX T10-8 (TU102)." I've highlighted the interesting bit in bold. As it stands, NVIDIA offers four graphics cards built around the TU102 GPU. They include the following... Titan RTX (TU102): 4,608 CUDA cores, 24GB memory, $2,499 GeForce RTX 2080 Ti (TU102): 4,352... Read more...
Artificial intelligence (AI) seems to be invading every aspect of our lives from enabling partial and full self-driving cars, to fueling the search engines we use, to more mundane tasks like running algorithms on our smartphone to optimize battery life. AI can be used to augment many of the tasks we perform on a daily basis, and NVIDIA is hoping to lend a hand with its Tesla GPU accelerators. One of the big fields that's ripe for advancement is with conversational AI. While today's digital assistants can "converse" with their human operators, their voice performance and comprehension abilities are often stilted and not exactly human-like. That's where NVIDIA comes in with breakthroughs that it... Read more...
Good news if you are a fan of NVIDIA's streaming SHIELD products, and in particular its SHIELD TV. There is evidence to suggest that NVIDIA might be readying not just one, but two new SHIELD TV models, one of which could potentially introduce a new form factor (to presumably go along with upgraded hardware and new features). You may recall that NVIDIA initially launched its SHIELD TV set-top box in May 2015. It proved to be a popular product, and in January 2017, NVIDIA launched a revised version with an altered form factor and smaller footprint. Now nearly three years later (from the revision), that remains the current model Let's start with the first of the two supposed SHIELD TV refreshes.... Read more...
If you have an NVIDIA GPU in your Windows rig – like the new Super family of GeForce RTX graphics cards -- now might be a good time to update your graphics driver to the latest version. NVIDIA has pushed out a new update for its graphics drivers that address a total of five security issues within Windows. The least serve of the security issues is CVE‑2019‑5687, which involves taking advantage of the kernel mode layer handler (nvlddmkm.sys) for DxgkDdiEscape. It is possible to obtain improper permissions which can result in a denial of service attack. The most sever exploit, with a CVSS V3 base score of 8.8, is CVE‑2019‑5683. According to NVIDIA, it involves a vulnerability in... Read more...
We’ve been talking quite a bit about the SHIELD TV over the past few weeks, but that’s mainly been in relation to a rumored hardware refresh that is in the works. Today, however, NVIDIA did make a pretty big announcement regarding the SHIELD TV, but it pertains to the software that the 4K media streamer runs. NVIDIA has announced the availability of SHIELD Experience Upgrade 8.0, which is rolling out now to all SHIELD TV owners. The big news with this update is the arrival of the Android TV experience based on Android Pie. This comes roughly a year after NVIDIA delivered Android Oreo to SHIELD TV users. According to NVIDIA, the Android Pie update brings a redesigned Settings... Read more...
It has always been a matter of when, not if, real-time ray tracing would see widespread support. Looking to scoot things along, NVIDIA debuted its RTX hardware last year, which leverages Microsoft's DirectX Raytracing (DXR) API. It has still been a relatively slow process, in terms of developer support, but things are progressing. As it relates to that, NVIDIA today announced that its OEM partners have implemented ray tracing support into 10 new RTX Studio laptops and mobile workstations. "RTX Studio laptops and mobile workstations are moving rapidly to the center of the creative industries," said Jason Paul, general manager of GeForce software and technology at NVIDIA. "They put real-time ray... Read more...
When we last reported on NVIDIA's SHIELD TV, a revised version of the 4K media steamer leaked via Google Play carrying the codename mdarcy. Although not much was revealed about what this new SHIELD TV would offer, it was determined that it would at least receive a revised version of the NVIDIA Tegra X1 SoC. Today, a new NVIDIA streamer has shown up at the FCC carrying the following designation: NVIDIA Corporation SHIELD Android TV Game Console P3430. The current SHIELD TV uses the Tegra X1 A2 SoC, while this refreshed model is said to use the Tegra X1 T210 B01. We have no way of knowing what kind of core/frequency changes are going on under the hood with this latest B01 revision, but... Read more...
The final member of NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX Super-series officially arrives today, the GeForce RTX 2080 Super. In case you missed it, a couple of weeks back, NVIDIA launched the GeForce RTX 2060 Super and RTX 2070 Super, to preemptively zing AMD in the lead-up to the Radeon RX 5700 series launch. The GeForce RTX Super-series will supplant and eventually replace their original, “non-Super” counterparts once availability dries up. At the top and bottom of the stack, however, the GeForce RTX 2060 and GeForce RTX 2080 Ti will remain. It is in the meat of the 20-series where the Supers reside, with the new GeForce RTX 2080 Super we’ll be showing you here today leading the charge,... Read more...
As was bound to happen, an early benchmark comparison claiming to represent NVIDIA's not-yet-released (to retail) GeForce RTX 2080 Super graphics card has leaked out. If the numbers are to believed (and they certainly look plausible), the GeForce RTX 2080 Super falls squarely between a Titan Xp and Titan V in performance. We will get to the numbers in a moment, but first let's recap the specs. The GeForce RTX 2080 Super sports 3,072 CUDA cores and features base and boost clocks of 1,650MHz and 1,815MHz, respectively. It also has 8GB of GDDR6 memory piping data through a 256-bit bus at 15.5Gbps, which pegs the memory bandwidth at 496GB/s. Twitter user and notorious leaker APISAK spotted the benchmark...

AT&T and NVIDIA have announced that they will be working together on the MGM Resorts NBA Summer League in Las Vegas. AT&T has enabled its 5G network in parts of Las Vegas, and it's highlighting the 5G tech in a sponsorship of the NBA Summer League starting with live games earlier this week. The AT&T 5G technology is being leveraged to allow the wireless streaming of high-quality video and game streaming coupled with NVIDIA's GeForce NOW service. AT&T provided its 5G mmWave spectrum with Ericsson as its network infrastructure backbone for the service. The tie-up allowed the streaming of live video from Samsung devices in the stands at the games. The video streamed live from... Read more...
Updated 7/5/2019 @ 11:14pm AMD has officially confirmed the updated pricing posted in our original article below. AMD was sittin' pretty with its Radeon RX 5700 series of graphics cards which were first announced back in early June. At the time, they were billed as value-priced alternatives to the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 and GeForce RTX 2070 with starting prices of $379. However, the GeForce RTX 2060 Super and GeForce RTX 2070 Super launches have completely upset AMD's big Navi debut. The Super cards are offering anywhere from a 10 percent to 20 percent performance boost over their predecessors at competitive price points (read the HotHardware review here). In other words,...
