The press conference of the chip developer at the huge electronics exhibition provided us with some more sophisticated technological means to dream about
Just like Intel, too NVIDIA You are fighting to change its perception as a company that deals with only one major area - Development Of graphic cores in this case. This is reflected in the large and long media event that she held in Las Vegas, with a little talk about new gaming projects, and a lot more focus in the world of learning, the calculations and artificial intelligence, in the automobile sector in particular, which is the fastest growing axis in recent years. vehicle With an annual value of about 10 trillion, compared to the value of "only" 100 billion for the entire gaming world.
Reduce the leaps, enlarge the screens
The first great news of NVIDIA At the press conference, the BFGD - which has nothing to do with BFG from Doom Games - was not afraid. This is a venture to create particularly large format gaming displays (Big Format Gaming Displays) specifically tailored to gaming with fast response times and high refresh rates, as a particularly new and prestigious era of gaming experiences. NVIDIA Will adjust its hardware and set the framework rules, while its partners will be the ones who will offer the hardware itself with a statement of support for the standard, for those who can afford to purchase a type of 65 computer screen.
The company also reminded us of its Max-Q venture to create lightweight, thinnest and quietest gaming games - with a new and sophisticated creation from the company GIGABYTE, Which weighs less than 2.3 per kilogram but is capable of offering the same performance as מחשב נייד A monster weighing close to 9 pounds launched just a year and a half ago. It's expensive, but impressive in the forefront - just like the BFGD.
The largest Western shuttle service company knew more beautiful days, but is still a massive force in a rapidly evolving market - and is now announcing that the company is officially in the smart car technology of NVIDIA As the basis for its fleet of autonomous vehicles and trucks from now on. Bearing in mind that the company has already completed autonomous travel with travelers and passed over 50,000 million miles of autonomous travel in limited exam stages in the United States - this is probably a contract of very large economic significance. Have a good time for them, and all of us, to see the idea become reality as quickly as possible.
The VW icon will contain NVIDIA hardware
WV plans to bring its famous Microbus back to life, the vehicle most likely to be associated with the 60 and hippie years, as a smart, eco-friendly electric car (as requested). It will only happen somewhere in 2022, but when it does - the hardware of NVIDIA Will be there to provide artificial intelligence capabilities for improved safety for the driver and passengers (based on the interface Development New applications called Drive IX), and a foundation for the vehicle's built-in multimedia capabilities as a derivative. This collaboration is supposed to be a first step towards introducing chip technology to most of Volkswagen's future vehicles, similar to what Audi has been planning to do for some time.
Autonomous vehicles in China and the United States
More companies that will cooperate with NVIDIA And adopting its advanced family of Drive products are California's Silicon Valley Aurora, which will develop 4 and 5 autonomous platforms (the highest of them, without steering wheel or pedals for the driver's seat) based on the innovative Xavier hardware - and Chinese media giant Baidu , Which will use the same Xavier systems as the basis for 'Apollo Pilot' auto driver technology that it is developing for the world's most populous country, which is also the largest car market of all today.
In case you forgot - the most powerful vehicle in history
B-NVIDIA Introduced their new Drive PX Pegasus platform at the last GTC 2017 GTC two months ago, but decided not to take any extra risks - and launch the piece again, to a much wider and diverse audience. It may look like the company's familiar PX2 Drive platform at a glance, but in practice it's a leap forward with a board that integrates a pair of Xavier chipset, which together bring 16 processing cores into dedicated development based on the architecture of theARM, Along with a combination of built-in graphics coresVolta - and a pair of generation graphics processing units to replace Volta (!), Who has not even received an official code name yet.
Together these components will provide an incredible processing potential of 320 trillion processing operations for computational learning every second (according to 3's card capabilities) Titan V), with 500 watt power consumption - when they reach first car makers and developers in the second half of the year, as the basis for vehicles with complete autonomous driving. crazy.
Streaming of free beta gaming
After a little over a year of beta tests are closed to a limited audience,NVIDIA Announced the opening of a free and open beta phaseGeForce NOW, which promises to deliver Streaming Live gaming almost any computer (as basic as possible) with a reasonable Internet connection, 1080p resolution and a display rate of between 60 frames per second and 120 frames per second in quality graphical settings.
The service includes Support dozens of games, Including some of the largest and most prominent today such as PUBG and Fortnite, also supports computers Windows And on MacOS - and is now available to sign up for consumers from North America and Europe who will get a chance to try it at no cost, after free registration on the dedicated site. ישראל Not yet part of the story, but the relatively wide availability gives us hope that this will change soon, and the local audience will be able to choose unlimited gaming with a reasonable monthly fee, without the need to purchase hardware.
More new capabilities for your device drivers
As a dessert, we received news of three innovations that would be added to the "GeForce Experience that accompanies the company's drivers for home video cards - Shadowplay Highlights that will automatically record your most interesting and successful moments in the supported competitive games, when all you have to do is decide who to share the information with, the application of the photo art from Ansel games upgraded in a convenient user interface More, filters and new options, and Freestyle will be the interface for the addition of pre-set visual filters to games that will make your experience feel more realistic, lighter and more comfortable, suitable for a dark room in the evening and also for those with color blindness. Inhale.
