NVIDIA GeForce RTX-20 Series Win CES 2019 Innovation Award

The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), the body behind CES, handed out CES 2019 Innovation Awards, with NVIDIA bagging one for its GeForce RTX 20-series graphics cards. CEA considered the RTX 2080 Ti, RTX 2080, and RTX 2070 for this award, and remarked the company's RTX technology to be "revolutionary," and that the "Turing" architecture it's based on brings real-time raytracing and artificial intelligence hardware-acceleration to the consumer space, augmenting programmable shading that's dominated consumer graphics for close to two decades now.

Yeah, there are dumb options in every category.

That isn't the category we are discussing though.

EDIT: Wait, I brain farted. It is.

Considering what the options were, I would be surprised if RTX series didn't win the award.

AMD's had a lot of cool stuff in their architecture, especially with Vega, but nobody cared about that :(

There's enough broken/incomplete in Vega10 that precluded innovation beyond mid tier GCN3 & when coupled to a much smaller engineer/devrel/evangelist/pr budget, the outcome was surprisingly OK. AMD funds had to concentrate on the CPU side for Zen, but now RTG is better funded, so cheer up. :)

as for the award, big whoop, this crap is as meaningless as the spike game awards or the oscars or whatever.

I wonder how many people are actually using these GPUs for computational workloads and not just trying to find reasons to use the compute parts of these GPUs in games.

Hate on RTX graphics cards being too expensive all you want and I agree. It is incredible technology and hope all future GPUs from Nvidia and AMD will support real time ray tracing. It is a pretty massive leap forward in visuals.

Now with that said I won't be getting any RTX GPU because it is too expensive and only 1 game currently supports it.

From what I have seen, I disagree. I just don't like how it looks but I hope it will get better.

The technology is very cool, it's great they came out with it, it's just too bad they're price gouging like they are with it. Going to mean much slower adoption as well as bad feelings toward NVidia from their customers.
