A few hours ago, Nvidia announced the next-generation lineup of RTX 3000 series graphics cards, including the RTX 3080, RTX 3070, and RTX 3090. The 3000 series graphics cards are promising to deliver insane performance gains in ray-traced workloads over the RTX 2000 series GPUs. Alongside this, the company also announced a host of new RTX and AI-powered technologies and solutions.

Nvidia also stated that Fortnite and the upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will receive RTX ray tracing support. Fortnite is said to receive ray-traced global illumination, RTX shadows, reflections, and ambient occlusion.

The new technologies announced at the launch event include Omniverse Machinima, NVIDIA Reflex, and GeForce Broadcast.

Omniverse Machinima

With Omniverse Machinima, content creators will be able to use a streamlined machinima creator suite, which supports asset imports, facial animation using a webcam, and voice acting, all of which will be powered by Ampere's AI tensor cores. According to Nvidia, Omniverse Machinima is designed with "physical accuracy" in mind and is capable of delivering "film-quality" cinematics.


Next up is NVIDIA Reflex, a technology that aims at lowering input latency by 50 percent in supported games like Call of Duty: Warzone, Valorant, and Apex Legends. NVIDIA Reflex will allow players to measure input latency by calculating the time between input and corresponding changes in pixels on the screen. According to Nvidia, NVIDIA Reflex will offer superior results than the existing Ultra-Low Latency Mode that comes baked into the GeForce drivers.

GeForce Broadcast

Finally, Nvidia also announced GeForce Broadcast, a technology that uses Ampere's AI tensor cores to improve and enhance game broadcasting. It seems that GeForce Broadcast builds upon the existing GeForce Voice, which uses RTX AI cores to eliminate background noise. The technology also allows streamers to set virtual background effects and webcam auto-framing.

The Nvidia RTX 3000 series graphics cards will launch on September 17.
