VirtualLink: Next-Gen VR Headsets
The new Turing GPU architecture represents the largest change in GPU architecture for NVIDIA since the release of the first CUDA GPU back in 2006. We can expect lots of new tricks, features and inputs - not just more raw performance and horsepower.
We already know to expect a new VirtualLink connector on the GeForce RTX series graphics cards, with the new USB-C connector powering next-gen unannounced VR headsets. We can expect 3 x DisplayPort and 1 x HDMI outputs as usual, with a smaller USB-C port above those as the first card with VirtualLink. This new connector will free up the HDMI port that will be better used with BFGDs, I'm sure.
NVIDIA's next-gen Turing GPU architecture was made with raytracing in mind, and it'll pack a bunch of RT cores alongside its Tensor Cores. This side of the card represents half of the Turing GPU, and since we don't know if NVIDIA will use any ray tracing/Tensor Cores on the GeForce SKUs, you have to remember it's sitting there. If it is used in a way we don't know about, we could expect things we also don't know anything about yet. Hidden performance, new tricks NVIDIA has up its sleeve to improve performance on untouched parts of the card.
It would be great to re-purpose the RT or Tensor Cores for gaming, but I think the biggest thing I want to see is the rise of NVLink.
