Nvidia is an American technology company, renowned for their GPUs. The company designs graphics processing units for both gaming and professional markets. GPUs unlike CPUs are mainly used to process image/video files and execute rendering tasks at a rapid pace. Architecturally, the CPU is composed of just a few cores with lots of cache memory that can handle a few software threads at a time. In contrast, a GPU is composed of hundreds of cores that can handle thousands of threads simultaneously. Recently, Nvidia has launched their TITAN RTX graphic card which the company claims is world’s most powerful GPU.The Mighty TITAN
The Nvidia TITAN RTX has 576 multi-precision [...]
NVIDIA has released a new video, which showcases the potential of real-time ray tracing (RTX) in Unreal Engine. The video is made in collaboration with Epic Games, NVIDIA, and ILMxLAB.
