I don't think DLSS is hardware accelerated. It's hardware accelerated on Nvidia's training servers, but not on the GPU itself.
It's hardware accelerated on both sides, the neural network is trained at Nvidia and is put at work in real-time on each GPU to "guess" how to extrapolate those images.

So the 3-4x RT performance gain rumor was fake after all.
Are you seriously thinking that you will get 3-4x fps gain in one generation ??

However, if you are talking about RT cores themselves being 3-4x faster then that possible. But it does not mean you will get 3-4x fps because games are not pure ray tracing. ALso, RT cores themselves only handle BVH traversal and ray-triangle intersection. Ray tracing depends on both RT cores and FP32 Cores. 4x faster RT does not mean you will get 4x fps or even close to that.

Yeah, but the recognition part of a NN is only some math functions, I don't think there's dedicated hardware for that.

The AI is dealt with by tensor cores, dedicated hardware for nn/machine learning.

Edit: Machine learning itself it's just math functions, just operations on tensors (fancy matrixes) and floating-point numbers, that's why accelerating them on GPUs works so well.

If these numbers are correct, I don't think you can have that (3090) card at any reasonable price. At least here in Finland. Cheapest 2080Ti is still 1200€ last time I checked. So, if this rumoured $1400 is correct, it'll cost at least 1800€ here. In that case my estimates for the prices are +1200€ for 3080 and +2200€ for 3090 (taxes etc). Latest Titan RTX is +3000€ here atm.

But I think the top model will really be at least 2600€, since I don't believe in rumours and because it's too close to Titan RTX.

Just my 2 cents... I won't be bying it anyway.

You guys are completely forgetting about DLSS 2.0, it basically looks like 1440p or 4k even though its running the game at 720p or 1080p, Control is the best example, but I have a feeling Nvidia is all in with RTX and DLSS 2.0 being a combined feature. Just my guess, but yeah.
I don't think we're forgetting it, I think we're very aware of the fact its not a technique that can be applied on every game unless Nvidia says its okay.

They can train a lot, but they do have to train it, so legacy is off the table and reality is that it will probably only appear in , as you say, RT capable titles. Until...? Its a nice technology. But the caveats are too big to ignore. Its like a new 'SLI support' issue waiting to happen. You'll have it most of the time... until Nvidia loses interest.

I will say... for me DLSS is a non issue in the purchase decision as a whole. Its bonus. And it really doesn't matter how many games Nvidia decides to support. The fact remains, they have to support it.

IMHO the final and only common idea of performance gen to gen is still raster perf. Its cool they get however much more efficiency out of their addons, but they are addons and most of the time you won't use them. Besides, its not hard to iterate with a big jump on your first implementation of this tech, let's be honest.

10gb on the 3080 is a stupid move by Nvidia. For an $850 card it should have 16gb minimum, 10gb 3080s are going to drop in price hard when the 20gb version and RDNA2 16GB cards release.

The tier up from that is 3090 for a bonkers price, as $800 for a card is already obscene.

Control's dlss 1.5 wasn't accelerated at all, even said it straight out, it's just a normal shader operation.

I dunno, I think it's funny but I don't go to WCCFTech at all. Ngreedia is getting a bit nutty but we'll see what the official launch prices are tomorrow. We really need some competition in the market segment!

You might have a point if the extra video memory was useful. But it won't

Many of these game you mention are not DLSS2.0
I'm pretty sure that Battlefield, Tomb Raider, FFXV, Metro ..... are all using DLSS1.0

However, more and more game will use DLSS2.0 in future and some of them are big titles like Cyperpunk 2077

Yup. I hope RDNA 3 with their chiplet approach and intel GPU's turn out good. I am not loyal to any manufacturer. Only to who can give me better price/ performance. RTX 3090, and probably RTX 3080 will be unaffordable for me.

I love those graphs without numbers. It's like saying drink this 16oz Red Bull - it will give you 2x the energy of an 8oz Red Bull. Just because there is 2x more product, doesn't mean you'll get 2x more results.

Folks need to relax and be patient for actual benchmarks. Things aren't that far off.

Oh, double the raytracing performance? Given the leaks and claims of quadruple raytracing performance that's underwhelming.

I guess this is still just a leak. What's the released day supposed to be again - Sept 12th?

I'm only interested in increased raw rasterization performance and improvements in price to performance ratio. DLSS & RT are nice features to have but let's be honest how many titles have them implemented? 10, maybe 13... No game I primarily play (Elite dangerous, No Man's Sky, Project Cars 2, rFactor 2, IL-2, DCS world, X-Plane, MS Flight Simulator 2020) uses these features. I'm VERY afraid of tomorrow Jensen coming on the stage and saying: "3090 is 100% faster than 2080TI and costs only 40% more", leaving out the fact that he's talking about ray tracing + DLSS, not standard rasterization performance. If he'd be honest and say +40-50% better in standard rasterization performance for 40% more $ and 100-150W more power consumption, crowd would likely whistle him off stage.

Wow, so good! No. Who the heck cares about RT?

And what other game supports DLSS 2? Anyway, honestly I do not want to use lowered options when I buy a $800-1200 card: I want to use it on native resolution and don't want it to be used on lower resolution that won't match native one.
I understand your concern, but you can't really tell the difference, that is the genius of DLSS 2. but, you also make a great point, like 4 games support it perfectly and that is it. so eh. I'm with ya.

I have a feeling these gpu's launch tomorrow, not just an announcement. I'm on the fence about it. I think i am going to be patient and get big navi 2 and ryzen 4800x upgrades like i had planned. unless benchmarks show insane gains then ya im gonna cave and just buy me a 3080 most likely lol

Features like ray tracing and DLSS can be related to the problem of the eggs and the chicken.

It's true that not many games are around using theses features, but there is not that many cards that can run them (and run them fast !)

The more card that there will be around supporting theses features, the more game developper will use them.

The more game that use them, the more people want to have these cards.

it's quite normal that it's start slow. Even more since it's only supported by one of the vendor and not even across all the range. Once all new cards support ray tracing and some kind of DLSS like upscaling, these features will become quite common in new games and almost mandatory on AAA games.

Same things with memory size. games won't make use of 24 GB if there is only a small margin that have that much(except maybe few flagship game). But once most of the market are 24+GB cards, most game will use it.

You forgot the second half of the chart. I marked 2018 for you, so you get your facts straight.

Stock growth at five times the rate of its branch, technology. Hmmm

So there we have, as soon as I saw the image nvidia comparing 2080ti x 3090 then it became clear, 3090 was meant to be 3080ti but for some reason they wanted a different name but in truth 3090 = 3080ti.
