CES: Nvidia Intros AI Impact on Gaming, Omniverse, Laptops

At Nvidia’s CES 2023 keynote, executives revealed new products and innovations in laptops, gaming, the omniverse, robotics and auto technology. Nvidia senior vice president of gaming Jeff Fisher focused on the company’s AI developments, emphasizing that, “AI will define the future of computing,” and adding that “this has influenced much” of what the company is showing at CES. He highlighted the company’s “new era of laptop computing,” powered by its Ada Lovelace architecture, GeForce RTX 40 Series GPUs and new 5th generation Max-Q technologies with DLSS 3 for quadrupled speed.

Gaming laptops with the RTX 40 Series GPUs, which will begin shipping in January, run the gamut from the most powerful RTX 4090 to the RTX 4050. Nvidia reports that laptops with the RTX 4090 and 4080 cards can transmit a 4K resolution image to three monitors simultaneously at 60 fps, with video export speed double that of last generation GPUs.

Nvidia has not yet revealed which laptop partners will first introduce laptops with the new chips, but The Verge states that “Nvidia calls out partners like Alienware’s new X16, Dell, Acer, Gigabyte, MSI, Samsung, Lenovo and Razer in multiple form factors.”

According to PC Gamer, Nvidia’s RTX Video Super Resolution uses AI to remove artifacts and then upscale video to 4K from imagery with native resolution of between 360p and 1440p to 4K.

Also newly launched is the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti, faster than the GeForce RTX 3090 T, with the Ada Lovelace architecture providing the speed increase at almost half the power. Nvidia reports that, at $700, GeForce RTX 4070 Ti will deliver over 120 fps on a 1440p monitor for numerous modern games including “A Plague Tale: Requiem,” “Warhammer 40,000: Darktide” and “F1 22.”

The Frame Generation technology added to DLSS in October will provide RTX users with a quadrupled AI-powered performance boost in over 250 released creative applications and games.

Nvidia also showed off its updated Omniverse Enterprise for increased performance and a “generational leap” in real-time RTX ray and path tracing and “streamlined workflows to help teams build connected 3D pipelines and develop and operate large-scale physically accurate virtual worlds.”

Adobe Substance 3D Painter, Autodesk Alias, PTC Creo and Kitware’s ParaView are now supported in Omniverse Connectors for “seamless connected workflows.” Omniverse DeepSearch — now widely available — uses AI to search very large untagged 3D databases via natural language or 2D reference images.
