    At GDC Nvidia announced NVIDIA RTX, a ray-tracing technology that brings real-time, cinematic-quality rendering to content creators and game developers. NVIDIA RTX is the product of 10 years of work i...

    Sadly no hardware announcements.

    It seems that the tensor cores in Volta found a gaming use.

    RTX sounds pretty game changing :D
    Unity and UE4 demo's should be out this week. Hopefully we can get a demo of some sort with the release of Volta Geforce cards.

    If real-time ray-tracing was like making a path to my house, then, this is like we've finally decided how the path is going to be done and what material to use for the first slab. Unfortunately, we don't have any slabs yet, and the test slab is made of paper mache.

    Enough sandbagging nVidia, give me my holo deck!
    At least you have a 1080 Ti, if you play at 1440p/60 or lower you still don't need an upgrade. Weep for those less fortunate, there's still no stock of anything, and so even after the Ethereum crash the prices are still AIDS.

    Aaaand I just realized you have your monitor listed. 3440x1440/100Hz... welp. Good luck.

    Very underwhelming event, it's no wonder the stock is down (investors are clearly not impressed, including me). What most people wanted was new consumer hardware, and Nvidia has made it clear that they're in no rush. Sigh.

    If every single chip you put out is immediately taken by AIB because they know it will be sold in very moment they pot it on working PCB, you would not rush anything new. (And more expensive to make.)

    They are playing waiting Game of Forges.

    So game development price would be probably once again bigger because of special Nvidia cards are needed or im wrong (do midrage game developers still using special nogamers Quadro GPUs)?

    I would like to see some comparison of ray tracing and standard rendering, i saw Remedy demo didnt saw anything special, im probably spoiled by fake development rendering achievements..

    Unfortunately the 1080Ti is generally not a 4K/60fps card when it comes to heavier titles :( I'm actually thinking about playing a few PS4 games now for a change.

    FFXV is a good example - a title loaded with fancy nVidia features that are unusable in 4K (unless you love low framerates).

    RT, just what we need, more aliasing, noise from undersampling and more artifact inducing temporal reconstruction.

    RT ray tracing will never be fast enough to deliver film like image quality.
