Nvidia recently announced their new graphics cards with real time ray tracing technology built in. This controversial addition is now starting to become a part of several new games.
We will soon see at least one new product from AMD. According to rumours, this will be a workstation GPU whose performance will indicate the performance of the other more consumer oriented “gaming” GPUs.
It happened again. Now Huawei has also a co-processor for graphics in their high end phones. They claim it will start from now helping with HDR content, battery life and general graphics performance. It is in a form of a chip you can see in the internals of the phones.
NVIDIA hasn't released a new graphics card for a while. They have been focusing on professional products and research. Which is great, we do need research and it will result in better technologies that will eventually become available to consumers. But at this point, the competition (AMD) is not even close to competing with NVIDIA's high end GPUs and other markets and industries are willing to invest in NVIDIA's other technologies. So should NVIDIA make another series of consumer GPUs?
CPUs are getting more complex and lately even consumer chips have started gaining more cores. We have seen a good example of this with smartphone processors. Snapdragon chips have always has a lot of cores and apple only a few, but still apple outperformed the Snapdragon chips. And there are more complex reasons for that… Continue reading Will we ever need multi-core CPUs?
