New GeForce RTX 40-series GPUs arrive to revolutionize video game development
The ace New Nvidia GeForce RTX 40 “Ada Lovelace” series video cardswill soon be able to encode content in AV1, a device used to compress video intended for transmission. Last week, the development team of Chromium, an open-source web browser project developed by Google, approved a request to start testing AV1 encoding for the new GPU.
For example, the feature should be available for owners of the new GeForce RTX 4080 and GeForce RTX 4090 in Chromium-based browsers such as Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge. Until now, the only GPU capable of using the codec was the Intel Arc, which debuted recently.
The AV1 standard, in general, provides better task performance than HEVC, which is more prevalent in earlier Radeon and GeForce models, in addition, Takes up very little storage space And, therefore, load less data to carry over the Internet. For creators distributing live content over a network, encoding can reach Efficiency improved by 40%Something that results in a substantial improvement in image quality with other features, such as HDR compatibility.
New GPU capability
With the new line of graphics cards, the manufacturer also promises the ability to record video in 8K60 quality through two AV1 encoders in its 8th generation encoder (NVENC). “AV1 can reduce the size of downloaded files while maintaining one” Improved image and sound quality level“, proclaims the manufacturer. Similarly, following the release of the “Racer RTX” trailer, NVIDIA created via Omniverse – a platform for multiple artists to work on 3D projects at the same time – to harness the power of artificial intelligence with DLSS . Has been done. 3, which, in addition to representing great advantages when playing video games, is also an ideal tool for speeding up workflows in programs such as Autodesk Maya, Autodesk Arnold, Blender Cycles and Redshift.
The novelty presented for Omniverse, which is part of the Nvidia Studio suite, also featured “RTX Remix”, an application that aims to help creators of video game mods. Using this new technology, creators will be able to create old-school textures and remaster existing elements.
