Nvidia is rumoured to be developing a GeForce graphics card that will support a bunch of new gaming features and GPU technology.
According to Tom's Hardware, the main fresh piece of innovation will come in the form of support for RTX Technology, something that Nvidia has already enabled on its current high-end Volta cards, which includes the Titan V and the Quadro GV100.
While this technology will be used in a number of upcoming games, the new cards will offer full support and best performance with the feature activated for enhanced visuals, rumours state.
A GPU clocking algorithm is also expected, with the ability to push clock rates beyond 2GHz. It might even be that we see a forth iteration of the firm's GPU Boost algorithm, a feature that is already in its third iteration.
But that's not the only updates we'll see. Nvidia will also be updating the display tech in its next gen GPUs if the rumour mill is true, with the chip maker integrating HDMI 2.1 offering a host of new display features to consumers such as Dynamic HDR, variable refresh rate and masses of ridiculously high resolutions.
Nvidia isn't the only chip gaming company that's been hitting the headlines thanks to rumours. AMD has also been generating some buzz thanks to its senior vice president of engineering at the Radeon Technologies Group, David Wang.
In an interview with PCGamesn, Wang was asked if AMD Navi GPUs would use an MCM (Multi-Chip Module) approach. He replied that while they are looking into it but haven't yet concluded whether that is a viable approach for traditional gaming graphics cards.
"We are looking at the MCM type of approach," says Wang, "but we've yet to conclude that this is something that can be used for traditional gaming graphics type of application," he said.
It's already widely predicted that Navi GPUs will be launched next year and most of the design work is already completed. However, it seems those who were hoping for MCM die on the Navi GPUs will have to wait a little longer.
