Today at Gamescom 2018 in Germany, Nvidia unveiled the much anticipated new graphics-chip design for gamers.
The company’s new Turing design will appear initially in three new GeForce cards, ready to pre-order here to ship on Sept. 20:
Turing was first unveiled last week in cards for computers used in industrial design and visual effects for the movie industry. The design introduces something called real-time ray tracing. The technology creates realistic video and images by calculating the path of individual rays of light in order to produce physically accurate shadows and reflections. Such intense calculation has previously not been possible in real time in games where images have to be updated instantly in response to fast-moving action.
