Nvidia’s “something super” is looking ever more like it is going to be new RTX hardware, as UL has just dropped an update for its ray tracing specific Port Royal benchmark “to improve compatibility with upcoming hardware.” Now we know that AMD’s Navi is coming soon, and will get an airing at E3 next week, but team Radeon is only just gearing up to talk about its ray tracing strategy, not to launch one. read more

During Nvidia’s recent Q1 earnings call Nvidia CEO, Jen-Hsun Huang, explained he wants to do much more than just take an off-the-shelf process node and port its GPUs over… in what seems like a thinly veiled dig at AMD. read more
