New AI hardware and software powered by RTX

NVIDIA launched NVIDIA Study at COMPUTEX in 2019. Five years and more than 500 NVIDIA RTX-accelerated apps and games later, it's bringing AI to even more creators with a variety of new RTX technology integrations announced this week at COMPUTEX 2024.

Just announced NVIDIA GeForce RTX AI laptops, including ASUS ProArt PX13 and P16 laptops and MSI Stealth 16 AI+, will feature dedicated RTX Tensor Cores to accelerate AI performance and low-power systems-on-a-chip with Windows 11 AI PC features. They join more than 200 laptops that are already accelerated with RTX AI technology.

NVIDIA RTX Video, a collection of technologies including RTX Super Video Resolution and RTX HDR Video that improve video content streamed in browsers such as Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge and Mozilla Firefox, is coming to the free VLC Media Player. And for the first time in June, creators will be able to enjoy these AI-enhanced video effects in popular creative apps like DaVinci Resolve and Wondershare Filmora.

DaVinci Resolve and Cyberlink PowerDirector are adding NVIDIA's new Ultra High Quality (UHQ) H.265 mode, which uses the NVIDIA NVENC to increase High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) and coding efficiency by 10%.

NVIDIA RTX Remix, a modding platform for remastering classic games with RTX, will soon become open source, allowing more modders to optimize how assets are replaced and scenes relit. RTX Remix will also be accessible through a new REST application programming interface (API) to connect the platform to other modding tools like Blender and Hammer.

Creative apps continue to embrace AI technology NVIDIA DLSS for higher quality ray-traced images in the viewport, with the Womp 3D modeling platform being the latest to integrate DLSS 3.5 with Ray Reconstruction.

NVIDIA presented G-Assistance Projecta demo of RTX-powered AI assistant technology that provides contextual help for PC games and apps.

The new NVIDIA App Beta Update Adds AV1 120 frames per second video capture and one-click performance tuning.

and the last Controller ready for game and NVIDIA Studio Controller They are available for installation today.

The video gets the AI ​​treatment

RTX Video is a collection of AI-based real-time video enhancements, powered by RTX GPUs equipped with AI Tensor Cores, to dramatically improve video quality.

Includes RTX Video Super Resolution, an enhancement technology that eliminates compression artifacts and generates additional pixels to improve video sharpness and clarity up to 4K, and RTX Video HDR, which transforms standard dynamic range videos into impressive high dynamic range on displays. HDR10.

NVIDIA has released the RTX Video Software Development Kitwhich allows application developers to add RTX video effects to creators' workflows.

Blackmagic Design's DaVinci Resolve, a powerful video editing application with color correction, visual effects, graphics, and audio post-production capabilities, will be one of the first to integrate RTX Video. The integration is being demonstrated in the COMPUTEX showroom.

Wondershare Filmora, a video editing app with AI tools and professional-grade video editing features for social media, will support RTX Video HDR soon.

Wondershare Filmora will soon support RTX Video HDR.

VLC Media Player, an open source cross-platform media player, has added RTX Video HDR in its latest beta versionfollowing its recently added support for Mozilla Firefox.

NVIDIA hardware encoders provide a generational boost in encoding efficiency for HEVC. Performance tested on two Xeon Gold-6140@2.3GHz with NVIDIA L4 Tensor Core GPU with the 520.65 driver.

NVIDIA also launched a new UHQ mode in NVENC, a dedicated hardware encoder on RTX GPUs, for the HEVC (aka H.265) video compression standard. The new mode increases compression by 10% without decreasing quality, making NVENC HEVC 34% more efficient than the commonly used x264 medium compression standard.

DaVinci Resolve and Cyberlink PowerDirector video editing software will add support for the new UHQ mode in their next updates. Stay tuned for official release dates.

RTX Remix Open Source Creators Toolkit

NVIDIA RTX Remix allows modders to easily capture game assets, automatically enhance materials with generative AI tools, and create stunning RTX remasters with full ray tracing.

The RTX Remix open beta recently added support for DLSS 3.5 with Ray Reconstruction, an artificial intelligence model that creates higher quality images for ray tracing-intensive games and applications.

Later this month, NVIDIA will make the RTX Remix Toolkit open source, allowing more modders to optimize how assets are replaced and scenes relit. The company is also increasing supported file formats for the RTX Remix asset integrator and beefing up RTX Remix's AI texture tools with new models.

The RTX Remix toolkit is now completely open source.

NVIDIA is also making RTX Remix's capabilities accessible through a powerful new REST API, allowing modders to link live RTX Remix to other DCC tools like Blender and modding tools like Hammer. NVIDIA also provides an SDK for the RTX Remix runtime to allow modders to implement the RTX Remix renderer in other applications and games beyond DirectX 8 and 9 classics.

Catch some rays

NVIDIA DLSS 3.5 with Ray Reconstruction improves image quality with ray tracing on NVIDIA RTX and GeForce RTX GPUs by replacing manually tuned noise removers with an NVIDIA supercomputer-trained AI network that generates higher quality pixels between sampled rays .

Previewing content in the viewport, even with high-end hardware, can sometimes deliver less than ideal image quality, as traditional denoisers require manual adjustment for each scene. With DLSS 3.5, the AI ​​neural network recognizes a wide variety of scenes, producing high-quality preview images and dramatically reducing time spent rendering.

The free browser-based 3D modeling platform Womp has added DLSS 3.5 to improve interactive and photorealistic modeling in the viewport.

DLSS 3.5 with Ray Reconstruction unlocks sharper images in the viewport.

Chaos Vantage and D5 Render, two popular pro-grade 3D applications that feature real-time preview modes with ray tracing, have also seen dramatic performance increases with DLSS 3.5: up to a 60% increase in Ray Reconstruction and 4 times of all DLSS technologies.

Tools that accelerate AI applications

The vast ecosystem of open source AI models currently available are typically pre-trained for general purposes and run in data centers.

To create more effective application-specific AI tools running on local PCs, NVIDIA has introduced the RTX AI Toolkit, an end-to-end workflow for customizing, optimizing, and deploying AI models on RTX AI PCs.

Partners like Adobe, Topaz, and Blackmagic Design are integrating the RTX AI Toolkit into their popular creative apps to accelerate AI performance on RTX PCs.
