StyleGAN2 may be one of the most well known face generator AI systems, but when using it, small details like facial hair and wrinkles did not move organically. These froze in the same spots, but with NVIDIA’s Alias-Freen GAN, all of these small details transform coherently, and the same applies when generating the morphs, or when images slowly shift from one to another.

Amazon’s New World Closed Beta just launched yesterday, and it has already fried at least a handful of NVIDIA RTX 3090 video cards, or more specifically the $1900+ EVGA 3090. The game may be just too intense for even the highest end of GPUs due to the game’s unlocked frame rate in the menus. NVIDIA 3090 cards have a TDP of 350 watts, which means that the game could be drawing far more than that to cause them to shut down. Read more for a video and additional information.
The future of gaming may be ARM-powered, and NVIDIA proves it with new demos running on the platform at this week’s Game Developers Conference, including one of Wolfenstein: Youngblood from Bethesda Softworks. That’s right, the MediaTek ARM platform is capable of ray-traced graphics with acceleration from NVIDIA DLSS, which utilizes GPU-accelerated deep-learning algorithms to boost frame rates.

NVIDIA’s Cambridge-1 has just been launched, and becomes the United Kingdom’s most powerful supercomputer. It will enable leading scientists and healthcare officials to use the powerful combination of artificial intelligence and simulation to accelerate the digital biology revolution as well as strengthen the country’s world-leading life sciences industry. Cambridge-1 utilizes optimized NVIDIA Clara and AI frameworks to take advantage of the entire system for large-scale research. Read more for a video and additional information.
Have you ever wondered what your sketch could look like if it was drawn by a skilled artist? If so, NVIDIA’s deep learning model, called GauGAN, does just that by transforming rough doodles into photorealistic masterpieces without any extra effort. It doesn’t need a supercomputer, but rather leverages generative adversarial networks, or GANs, to convert segmentation maps into lifelike images. Read more for two videos and additional information.
Ever wonder what Grand Theft Auto V would look like if artificial intelligence were to generate the world in real-time? If so, then look no further than GAN Theft Auto, which basically uses an AI-powered neural network to create a fully playable section of the game. This was made possible by using GameGAN by NVIDIA, or a generative model that learns to visually imitate a desired game by ingesting screenplay and keyboard actions during training.

NVIDIA is working on a 3D map of the universe in an aim to probe subatomic interactions for green energy sources and much more. The team will use Perlmutter at the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC), a supercomputer that will deliver nearly four exaflops of AI performance. What this means is that it’s now the fastest system on the planet on the 16- and 32-bit mixed-precision math AI uses, fully utilizing the 6,000+ Nvidia A100 Tensor Core GPUs.

NVIDIA officially unveiled a line of GeForce RTX laptops based on the new GeForce RTX 3050 Ti and 3050 Laptop GPUs, which brings the company’s Ampere architecture with dedicated RT and Tensor Cores to the mobile gaming crowd. These graphics cards offer exceptional performance in thin, sleek designs, and are twice as fast as previous-generation systems, capable of delivering smooth, 60 frames per second gameplay at 1080p in popular game, like Minecraft RTX and Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. Read more to see what it’s capable of with NVIDIA DLSS AI rendering turned on.
At the GPU Technology Conference earlier this week, NVIDIA showcased RTX Direct Illumination (RTXDI) technology, which basically adds millions of dynamic lights in real-time. The tech demo ran on an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 GPU and showed realistic night scenes by allowing developers and artists to create cinematic visuals with realistic lighting, incredible reflections as well as accurate shadows through real-time ray tracing.
