Nvidia RTX 2080 graphics card confirmed in cryptic YouTube video

NVIDIA Officially Announces Turing GPU Architecture at SIGGRAPH 2018

Nvidia has finally unveiled its brand new Turing architecture under the Quadro RTX series, confirming two of the three trademarks spotted at the end of last week.

One of those includes an unveiling of "The Speed of Light", a collaboration between Porsche, NVIDIA, and Epic Games. One of the chatters' handles is "RoyTeX", whose capitalization nearly certainly alludes to the RTX branding introduced last night on the Quadro RTX series of graphics cards.

With Samsung 16Gb GDDR6 video memory on board, running up to 48GB in the RTX 8000 to push data around faster than before, Nvidia noted that Turing GPUs are some 26 times more capable of handling ray-tracing than the Pascal generation GPUs.

Manager of Virtual Design at Porsche, Christian Braun, said: "Porsche's collaboration with Epic and NVIDIA has exceeded all expectations from both a creative and technological perspective". Hybrid rendering enables cinematic-quality interactive experiences, wonderful new effects powered by neural networks and fluid interactivity on highly complex models.

NVIDIA HAS REVEALED its first suite of Turing GPUs capable of powering ray-tracing, the next big step in realistic graphics. "Hybrid rendering will change the industry, opening up incredible possibilities that enhance our lives with more handsome designs, richer entertainment and more interactive experiences". It also announced that key graphics applications addressing millions of designers, artists and scientists are planning to take advantage of Turing features through the RTX development platform. The arrival of real-time ray tracing is the Holy Grail of our industry.

In what seems like a fitting tribute to the man behind the upcoming GPU architecture's name, Nvidia has detailed everything about its RTX 2080 graphics card within veiled messages just waiting for engaged users of the community to piece it all together.

Combined with new graphics technologies such as variable rate shading, the Turing SM achieves unprecedented levels of performance per core. Now, courtesy of a number of easter eggs tucked into an official teaser video, we have a much better idea of what that might be.
