Nvidia Titan RTX: The most powerful graphics card is already official with 16 TFLOPS

The most powerful graphics card in the world is already here for $2499 US Price or 2,699 euros it comes loaded with 24 GB of GDDR6 memory, twice the size of the RTX 2080 Ti.

It is official; Nvidia has presented its new beast, the so-called Titan RTX, the most powerful graphics card on the planet, which in turn presents exaggerated figures, in all senses. And is that the new Nvidia GPU reaches a recommended price of 2,699 euros, a model that comes just two months after the presentation of its new family RTX with the 2070, 2080 and 2080 Ti.

Double in price to the RTX 2080 Ti; And in power?

The new Titan RTX is also based on the new Turing architecture, like its little sisters of the 20XX series, although in this case it presents some really surprising numbers. And it has up to 4,608 CUDA cores and 576 Tensor Cores, with a base frequency of 1,350 MHz and a Boost of 1,770 MHz. Although perhaps what surprises most is its amount of memory, with up to 24 GB GDDR6. What about his brute strength? Following with such brutal figures, the new Titan RTX reaches 16.3 TFLOPS, far exceeding the 14.2 TFLOPS of the RTX 2080 Ti and the 13.8 TFLOPS of the Titan V, which guarantees a 4K game with maximum detail. even in the most leading videogames of the market, also taking full advantage of the new Ray Tracing technology.

On the other hand, the GPU of the new Titan RTX is the same as that of the RTX 2080 Ti, that is, the TU102, yes, a version of the same chip fully unlocked, as with the Quadro series from Nvidia. At the level of connections presents an HDMI port, three ports DisplayPort and a USB port Type C. It is expected that the new Titan RTX will reach the market in December at a price, as we say, nothing more and nothing less than $2500. We can now sign up on the official NVIDIA website to receive notification when there are stocks.

New AMD Ryzen 3000 expected to be shown in less than a month

As expected by the dates, there is word of an entire catalog of processors that will be part of the new AMD Ryzen 3000 series. This new series of processors from the manufacturer are highly anticipated by users, given that, not only will they be the first processors manufactured in the node of 7 nm for the desktop segment, but because they will be the first models that will mount the new Zen 2 cores inside.

According to Wccftech, In the entry-level segment AMD is allegedly preparing three new Ryzen 3 processors, dubbed the 3300X, 3300 & 3300G. The latter of which features integrated Navi graphics while the two former SKUs are CPU only parts.

The new AMD Ryzen 3000 processors are, as we said at the beginning, that some models could revolutionize the computer market at the desktop level. The reality is that they come at a bad time for Intel, which has seen the price of its processors soared due to its low stocks, which in effect help sales of AMD processors that have soared during last November.

ASRock announces the X399 Phantom Gaming 6 motherboard for Threadripper processors

Companies are encouraging to put more and more motherboards on the market for Ryzen Threadripper processors because they are an AMD sales success.

A good power-price ratio for the Ryzen Threadripper 2950X makes it ideal for enthusiasts, professionals and prosumers, which is a sector where a lot of money is made. ASRock’s X399 Phantom Gaming 6 motherboard follows the company’s usual design, dispensing with the most expensive and gamer lighting and aesthetics by focusing on providing a more economical product.

It has the usual eight memory banks for DDR4 modules up to 3400 MHz before entering the overclocking zone outside of the use of memory profiles. It also has three PCIe 3.0 × 16 slots that allow up to three graphics cards to be used in SLI or CrossFire, and it is curious that it does not have any type of PCI slot anymore. This makes more space for two M.2 slots for units up to type 2280 and 22110.

It includes heads for RGB connections, and only has red lighting around the chipset heatsink. The power supply of the motherboard is done with the usual ATX connect and two eight-pin PCIe. It includes four four-pin connectors for water pumps and liquid cooling that can deliver up to 15 W, compatible with the case fans for which it also has several additional four pins. The audio codec is a Realtek ALC1120 with 7.1 audio, and the Ethernet controller is a Dragon RTL8125AG for 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity, and has another Intel I211AT for an additional Gigabit Ethernet connection. On the back panel includes a PS / 2 connector, an optical SPDIF, eight USB 3.0, a USB 3.1 and a USB 3.1 type, plus five 3.5 mm connectors. The motherboard is ATX format, with a size of 24.4 cm × 30.5 cm.

 

Nvidia DGX-2H, the new Nvidia servers

Although the Nvidia company is known mainly for its developments in the world of graphics cards such as the Nvidia graphics, the truth is that they have other areas of development. This time Nvidia has just announced the launch of a new version of the DGX-2 server. This is the Nvidia DGX-2H, a device equipped with 16 Tesla V100 GPUs.

Features of the Nvidia DGX-2H

Nvidia recently introduced a new version of the DGX-2 server equipped with 16 Tesla V100 GPUs (512GB of HBM2 memory in total), which have a TDP (Thermal Design Power) of 450W. The DGX-2H from Nvidia also has two 24-core Intel Xeon Platinum 8174 processors, 1.5TB of DDR4 memory, and 30TB of NVMe storage, and two GbE 10/25/40/50/100 interfaces.

In addition, the successor of the DGX-2 server also has a cooling system and the company from Santa Clara, USA, guarantees a maximum output of 2.1 PFLOPS. There is no official information, at this time, about the price and availability.

Justice will be the first video game to implement Nvidia DLSS and Ray Tracing technology

Justice will be the first videogame to implement Nvidia DLSS and Ray Tracing technology. Hopefully the title will not confuse any visitor to the website, since in itself, the first video game to implement Ray Tracing technology is Battlefield V, and it is expected that more games will be coming soon. The next to reach the market with support for Nvidia technology will be the title Justice, an MMORPG from China. It may seem a bit absurd that an MMORPG has this type of technology that can cause sharp drops in performance, in a game that contains many characters, but we all want to enjoy a better graphic quality in games.

But as we have said before, Justice will not only make use of Ray Tracing technology, it will also make use of the anti-aliasing filter with AI, Nvidia DLSS that will help improve performance between 30% and 40%, making the loss of performance by Ray Tracing not so big. Battlefield V does not have DLSS support and this is the reason why you lose between 40% and 60% of performance when this technology is active in the new EA delivery.

If you want to see Justice first hand here is the first trailer of the video game using the new Nvidia technology:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4gqzZREHhMY

We can see in the video how the use of the new ray tracing technology gives a spectacular appearance and of course a greater realism, which in the end is also important. We hope that with DLSS support in Ray Tracing, we could achieve very high ‘FPS’ rate, of more than 60 in 4K resolutions.

New Intel Comet Lake-U for laptops coming to Lenovo, featuring Intel’s 9550U CPU

Its expected that Lenovo will present its new generation of IdeaPad S530 laptops (during CES), as a supposed leak could have already listed these new laptop on its website, equipped with three new Intel 9000 Series processors, or in other words, Intel Comet Lake U processors for laptops. You already know that Intel has not yet announced its next generation of processors, although little by little more and more information is appearing and, in fact, it is already known that they will be called Intel Comet Lake.

Therefore, it is clear that Lenovo has published this information by mistake, and proof of this is that it can no longer be found on its website. Anyway you already know what usually happens when something is published on the Internet, and is that once the information has been published, screenshots showing all the information, such as the one you can see below with the full technical characteristics of the Lenovo IdeaPad S530-13IWL model:

According to sources, IdeaPad S530, a 2-in-1 laptop with a 13-inch IPS display, up to 16GB of RAM, up to 512GB of storage, and a discrete NVIDIA GeForce MX150 GPU (Pascal) option.

  • Core i7-9550U (replaces Core i7-8565U)
  • Core i5-9250U (replaces Core i5-8265U)
  • Core i3-9130U (replaces Core i3-8145U)

Following this slip from Lenovo, the rumors have begun. You know how this works: a manufacturer makes a mistake and inadvertently publishes features or names of a product that has not yet been announced, this is captured and the media we echo, and from there the rumors begin.

We can take as very likely, that it is not certain until the official announcement by Intel, that the Comet Lake-U processors will be an improved version of the current generation, based on lithography at 14nm ++ of low consumption and, in this case, with four physical cores and with only the Core i7 with Hyperthreading technology, which would provide it with eight process threads.

Everything else from there is pure speculation, because nothing else has been filtered. In any case it is expected that Lenovo will present these new IdeaPad S530 at the next CES, which will take place in Las Vegas at the beginning of January 2019, so luckily it will not be long until we can leave doubts.

Nvidia RTX 2060 significantly faster than the GTX 1060 according to leaked report

More good news from Nvidia, as it looks like its Nvidia RTX series cards continue to show significant improvements over the GTX series video cards.

According to Tomshardware, a leaked benchmark found that the Nvidia RTX 2060 is 30 Percent Faster than GTX 1060. Although we still dont know if this new card will be called Nvidia RTX 2060 nonetheless it is showing great potential. 

The RTX 2060 appeared in the database of the test bench of Final Fantasy XV with a performance clearly superior to the 1060, being placed between the AMD Vega 56 and the GeForce 1070.

All this speculation could come to a head when NVIDIA decides to launch the 2060 and fine tune its drivers, then we could see an even bigger improvement in FPS.

AMD launches the AMD Ryzen 2600X and 2700 with Wraith Max heatsinks

AMD is looking towards this holiday season, looking to boost its sales. AMD will offer two different packs that will include a common gift: The Wraith Max CPU cooler that is capable of dissipating up to 200 watts.

The movement of AMD is intelligent, two of its strongholds in sales such as the Ryzen 7 2700X and the Ryzen 5 2600 can cannibalize the sales this Christmas of its inferior and superior counterparts respectively. For this reason, AMD has presented a new limited edition package that has become known as Ryzen Max and that would include with both GPUs the official heatsink of AMD Wraith Max. These bundle or also called packages, will be a limited edition and will be offered only on holidays, being a claim for those who are thinking of assembling a team on these dates so indicated.

The bundle will only affect two Ryzen CPUs

These bundles will be offered in two CPUs only: together with the AMD Ryzen 7 2700 and the AMD Ryzen 5 2600X. Both options represent positive sales but could be marred by those of their range brothers. Thus, the AMD Ryzen 7 2700 has 8 cores and 16 threads with a base frequency of 3.2 GHz and a boost that manages to raise its frequency to 4.1 GHz, all with a TDP of 65 watts. While the AMD Ryzen 5 2600X contains 6 cores and 12 threads at a base frequency of 3.6 GHz and achieves a boost of 4.2 GHz with a TDP higher than 95 watts.

This bundle would allow to increase stock frequencies thanks to its high dissipation power, since it is capable of dissipating up to 200 watts. XFR2 would do the rest to allow the CPU to acquire higher speed peaks under certain workloads, improving performance without the user having to touch a single parameter.

Rumor: New version of Nintendo Switch could arrive in 2019

Rumors suggest that Nintendo is already discussing additional functions and features a new Switch could have, as well as the cost of implementing them.

Nintendo Switch is about to turn 2 years old and a recent rumor suggests that during the second half of 2019 a new version of the console could arrive. The rumor of this new version of the console, comes from sources of the Japanese Wall Street Journal who assure that there are discussions about the additional functions in both hardware and software that would include, as well as what would be the cost of implementing them. So far the Switch has been a complete success for Nintendo enjoying a large number of sales that have kept it at the top for several months and with a catalog that together with having new deliveries on a regular basis continues to sell quite well.

This rumor does not look so crazy because it is something that Nintendo did with the 3DS portable console, which had its initial version, an XL version, the ‘New’ version, the ‘New 3DS XL’, the 2DS and finally the ‘ New 2DS XL ‘.

Among some of the rumored “upgrades” IGN includes

Longer Battery Life

Better WiFi and Power for Cloud Based Games

A Higher Quality Screen

BlueTooth Headset Support

Latest Google Pixel 3 leak

The Google Pixel 3 and its larger version are the two phones that have received this year the dubiously honorable prize of being the most leaked of the year. Specifications, unboxings, photos taken with your camera and even a review made weeks before your presentation. A situation that has been normalized as the weeks have passed and new data came to light, but which would have caused great outrage had it occurred with another manufacturer. In any case, there was a missing data to know and that nothing was known with certainty until now: the colors in which this new terminal will hit the market.

Despite being a commonly underestimated field, colors are a determining factor in consumer products, as many of the manufacturers have already shown in the past, including Google. This year the Mountain View company, as a result of the latest movements in the sector and based on its experience in previous years, seems to banish a key to include another line of smartphones.

According sources, Google is planning to introduce a pink variant of the Pixel 3. It’s pretty pale, and apparently Google is branding it as ‘Sand.’ It doesn’t look particularly appealing to me from the leaked renders, but hopefully it’ll be better in person.
