    Probably a misunderstanding.
    AFAIK, tensor program flow is controlled by regular compute cores, but the heavy math operations are executed on tensor units. (Same as with RT cores) Tensors can not do any logic, they only can do math.
    Also the diagram above does not make much sense to me, the term 'int32 shading' alone really is a bit pointless.

    The proper question more likely is: When the warp issues tensor or RT commands, does it become available for other work while waiting?
    If yes, then DLSS or RT can not only run along with other async compute or rendering tasks, also the warps working on RT / DLSS could help with those tasks while waiting.
    Even if we could see analysis of a BFV / Metro frame, and DLSS would run alone as in the diagram, this would not proof it's not possible. (often doing such stuff async hurts performance due to cache trashing or other bottlenecks, and the devs decide against async)

    Edit: To be more clear, DLSS can not run 'for free'. Even if it could, it would at least share bandwidth with other tasks.

    Not a proof of the actual hardware implementation, but the PTX ISA has fp16x2 instructions for fma/add/sub/mul/neg and comparisons (which is mostly subtraction with NaN detection and a tiny amount of bit logic), starting from Jetson TX1 and Pascal.

    If you are going to use solidworks 2019 make sure your GPU supports the application you will be using.

    Thread-bans will be duely considered if the pooping continues.

    Which IMO is what RTX is really about and for. 16 seconds is ridiculously long for realtime applications, but for professional imaging and content creation, it's an insanely beneficial improvement.

    Just checking to see if this forum (and others) are still live as the last post here was 8 days ago.

    The GTX 1660 was released today and lots of reviews went live today but not even a peep here.

    Well it's not exactly an exciting product. Not that it's bad in any way really, just... yawn.

    Everybody is just waiting for the 7nm GPU's. I know I am.

    I think the mobile versions might bring the largest step up.
    The GTX 1650 might bring GTX 1060 performance to the GTX 1050/1050Ti bracket (sub-$900 laptops), and that's a very nice improvement.

    Regardless, 12nm aren't doing any wonders here.

    The first Nvidia 7nm GPUs, I estimate, will be announced in a couple of days at GTC.
    These Ampere (?) GPUs, however will be targeted at HPC / NN training, like Volta was.
