Nvidia’s RTX 3090 offers the world’s first possibility to connect, play, capture, and watch games in 8K HDR. Just when you think we have reached the point of the game, 4K actually Runnable without any serious warning Nvidia throws 8K. So how do you intend to reach this new lofty milestone?
One of the main parts of the equation is DLSS, or deep learning supersampling. This is an AI-based technology that the NPU developed in-house to decouple the high resolution rendering from the GPU and into the Tensor core in Turing (and soon, Ampere)architecture. This is done using upscaling algorithms, temporal feedback, and GPU acceleration. And it has had a lot of success. Compare with DLSS 2.0 benchmark..
NTX uses RTX 3090 to introduce DLSS SDK version 2.1, which includes DLSS 8K and the new Ultra Performance mode. It’s a brand-new algorithm that can deliver 9x super-resolution in compatible games, and importantly, it can deliver what the $1,499 amp graphics card claims, delivering over 60 fps performance at 8K. Is what we can offer.
This means that the options for DLSS settings will soon be available for supported games: Quality, Balance, Performance, and Ultra Performance—Ultra Performance Mode can be scaled to 8K, but the most accurate in the lot. It will be lower.
Of course, that 8K dream can also be helped by 10,496 CUDA cores. This is enough to severely weaken PC gamers.
One of Ampere over Turing’s major upgrades is the ability to perform graphics, raytracing, and workload calculations simultaneously. Nvidia does this using some clever time processing. That is, it completes the DLSS of the previous frame while rendering the current frame, reducing potential frame time.
Nvidia also includes HDMI 2.1 support for single-cable 8K, and the new AV1 Decode Acceleration Block (coming soon for Chrome, Youtube, Edge, VLC, and Windows 10). This allows you to actually capture 8K content. Chips. Similarly, Shadowplay’s 8K HDR support has been added so you can capture and share 8K content.
And the greatness of the technology required to reach the 8K promised land is almost complete. What we need now is memory, and much more.
24 GB GDDR6X memory That’s enough if it’s rated above 19Gbps, and Nvidia is once again taking the lead with memory maker Micron. Therefore, the RTX 3090 can take advantage of several new developments such as new algorithms, maximum transition avoidance coding (MTA), and PAM4 signaling to get maximum memory performance without the unpleasant bottleneck. Terminology. The point: it’s faster.
Memory puzzles also need some support for pushing I/O performance to meet the demands of 8K-enabled games. Microsoft’s Direct Storage is coming soon. Nvidia RTX IO (And Xbox Series X) can help. This allows optimal streaming performance without compromising the many-core CPUs that can’t stay loaded.
As a result, much is done behind the scenes to achieve the 8K performance goal, many of which require the support of game developers and TV and monitor manufacturers to use. It may mean waiting for a while for the outcomes of Nvidia’s efforts to reach a peak as a cohesive vision.
DLSS 8K is the quickest to reach in a moment, for many games that are set to update to the latest specs, if not the majority of games that currently support DLSS. This includes Control, Wolfenstein: Youngblood, Watch Dogs: Legion, Minecraft with RTX Beta, Death Stranding.
RTX IO will be implemented in the game when the SDK is released. This is a release for next year only. However, Nvidia does not specify a particular title, but says some games are already in development. At the beginning of 2020, I thought it would be impossible to realize the big cyberpunk idea on 8K TVs.
There is also the problem of high refresh rate monitors that can display such a ratio of images. At the moment, only a handful of TV makers have the technology needed to achieve 8K. Nvidia is made possible by working with LG, Samsung and Sony.
LG has already announced that 2020 8K OLED TVs are facing this challenge. That is, it comes with 8K support, VRR (in favor of Nvidia G-Sync), and its own alpha (alpha) 9 Gen 3 AI processor for full 8K bandwidth.
8K games have many moving parts, and as you may know, it doesn’t sound like a cheap fix. Nevertheless, it seems to be more than a hollow promise of 8K games on Nvidia’s side, and if all gathered, it might just make it work for a happy few. ..
