    What exactly is ray traced here? All the lights look distinctly 12 years old.

    All dat VLIW5 superscalar granularity :cool2:

    Ice surfaces according to the menu descriptors. Probably only a singular or double ray bounce. Doesn't look bad for 12 years old though.

    They messed up the FE pricing again like they did with the 1080 so the MSRP prices are pointless, no vendor will ever sell the Ti at $999 when the FE goes for $1199 and that's reflected in the prices. Typical Nvidia scummy practices here. They really like that FE tax and to make their partners look bad because they don't sell at MSRP.

    You was think they will look like 2018 lighting ?.... sorry just joking.

    This one have been made for been calculated ... the core square is not a real one chips, or thave use a super good AI denoize on it. This said it can represent the real size ( +8%)

    More specifically, it's a sanitized image. That's a real board and substrate; they've just brushed out all of the unique markings on the PCB and RAM, and prettied up the top of the GPU. We've gotten similar images from NVIDIA in prior generations, and they've been accurate.

    Oh man, Damien went to AMD?! That sucks so hard.

    (for us, hopefully it’s great for him and his family)

    Supposing that neither AMD's Navi nor Intel's upcoming dGPU will have dedicated hardware for raytracing and Nvidia remains as the only one who has it, then how would that affect mass adoption of raytracing in future games?

    Hence why i have say, this one is made for been calculated . ( and why i say, remove 8% too .. ok.. let say 5% )

    No further than Gameworks type of optional features.

    I thought this part was interesting:
    That souns to me like a misconception, and I can already read things here and there abou fake resolutions adn what not. Point "rendering" is as fake as it gets I can't see for my life how including some level of ray tracing (physics/optics) to the process make the thing faker, quite the contrary.

    Other than that Nvidia is making a leap right there, I wonder how long it will take for the competition to catch-up.

    Didn't notice this posted yet: http://www.expreview.com/63600.html

    TU102 is apparently being made by both TSMC ("Taiwan", 12nm) and Samsung ("Korea", 14 or 11nm? they don't have 12nm)
    Will be interesting to see if there's a difference between the two in die size or performance (overclocking potential)

    Is there any way that the RTX components can be used for accelerating GPU Mining?

    Please, let the answer be no. Otherwise the insane prices will be even higher.

    My guess is they are/could be (same for tensor cores), but that no one will release any such software in the wild for at least a long while

    Not unless someone makes a new coin where the mining is based on ray tracing or tensor calculations.

    The only mining algorithm that really matters is Ethereum - it's 80% of the GPU mining revenue. Ethereum's algorithm is "memory hard" which requires memory bandwidth and a just a few XORs. So GDDR6's higher bandwidth will help ethereum mining, the tensor cores and ray tracing won't have any use.

    That said the entire market has crashed, so mining should have 0 effect on the launch:
