Revolutionary Real-Time Ray Tracing Acceleration
Incorporating new hardware-based ray tracing engines, Turing is the industry’s first graphics processor enabling real-time ray tracing. A single Quadro RTX 8000 board can render complex professional models with physically accurate shadows, reflections, and refractions to empower users with instant insight. Working in concert with applications leveraging APIs such as NVIDIA OptiX, Microsoft DXR and Vulcan ray tracing, systems based on Quadro RTX 8000 will power truly interactive design workflows to provide immediate feedback for unprecedented levels of productivity.
Enhanced Tensor Cores
Purpose-built for deep learning matrix arithmetic at the heart of neural network training and inferencing functions, Turing GPUs include enhanced Tensor Cores that accelerate FP16 / FP32 matrix operations in addition to INT8 and two new INT4 and INT1 (binary) precision modes. Independent floating-point and integer data paths allow more efficient execution of workloads using a mix of computation and addressing calculations.
Advanced Shading Technologies
Mesh Shading provides a compute-based geometry pipeline to speed processing and culling for geometrically complex models and scenes to improve performance by up to 2x. Motion Adaptive Shading offers more granular control over how GPU horsepower is distributed (i.e. more cycles applied on the detailed areas of a scene and fewer on the less detailed areas) to increase performance and at the same image quality, or produce similar image quality with 50% reduction time to generate shaded pixels. Especially useful for VR experiences, Texture Space Shading enables shading and geometry samples to be processed at different rates for more efficient execution.
Encode/Decode Engine Enhancementi
H.264 encode bitrate/quality improvements to modulate performance to reduce bitrate (e.g. ~6% at the same performance level, ~11% with reduced performance).Vidmem output for encoded bitstream and motion vectors to accelerate post-processing for end-to-end GPU workflows.
Optical flow at 4×4 granularity for improved video frame interpolation/extrapolation, object tracking, motion segmentation, action recognition, etc.
