Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang had a well-timed Q&A session at CES 2019, the massive tech commerce present in Las Vegas. It got here on Wednesday morning, simply after his rival, Lisa Su, CEO of Superior Micro Gadgets, gave a keynote speech the place she introduces the Ryzen VII graphics chip.
Huang was not impressed.
“It was form of underwhelming,” he stated within the press Q&A.
Huang stated the efficiency of AMD’s Ryzen VII was weak in comparison with the efficiency of Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 2060, unveiled on Sunday night time. He famous 40 gaming laptops are coming based mostly on Nvidia’s 2060, 2080, and Max-Q expertise this 12 months. Concerning AMD, he stated the Ryzen VII didn’t have real-time ray tracing or one other function dubbed DLSS, which may sharpen and velocity body charges.
“I believe they only considered it this morning,” he joked.
The RTX 2060 is on the market shortly for $350, whereas the Ryzen VII is approaching February 7 for $700. The RTX 2080 sells for $800, the RTX 2080 Ti sells for $1,200, and the RTX 2070 sells for $700.
I requested Huang if he was dissatisfied within the numbers of video games that help Nvidia’s newest graphics options, like real-time ray tracing and DLSS. He stated, “Each era begins at zero.” He stated extra help was coming forward for real-time ray tracing (which delivers some very cool reflection, lighting, and shadow results), and DLSS sooner or later.
