Omniverse Available to Millions of Individual Creators and Artists Worldwide
Expanding the NVIDIA Studio ecosystem, NVIDIA Omniverse is now available at no cost to millions of individual creators with GeForce RTX and NVIDIA RTX GPUs. Bolstered by new features and tools, NVIDIA’s real-time design collaboration and simulation platform empowers artists, designers and creators to connect and collaborate in leading 3D design applications from their RTX-powered laptop, desktop or workstation.
Multi-app workflows can grind to a halt with near-constant exporting and importing. With Omniverse, creators can connect their favorite 3D design tools to a single scene and simultaneously create and edit between the apps.
NVIDIA also announced platform developments for Omniverse Machinima with new free game characters, objects and environments from Mechwarrior 5, Shadow Warrior 3, Squad and Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord; and Omniverse Audio2Face with new blendshape support and direct export to Epic’s MetaHuman; plus early access to new platform features like Omniverse Nucleus Cloud — enabling simple “one-click-to-collaborate” sharing of large Omniverse 3D scenes.
New Studio Laptops With GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti GPUs
NVIDIA Studio laptops provide the best mobile performance for 3D creation. The new GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Laptop GPU features 16GB of the fastest GDDR6 memory ever shipped in a laptop and higher performance than the desktop TITAN RTX.
The new GeForce RTX 3070 Ti also delivers fantastic performance — it’s up to 70 percent faster than RTX 2070 SUPER laptops.
Next-generation laptop technologies are amping up performance. The company worked with CPU vendors on CPU Optimizer. It’s a new, low-level framework enabling the GPU to further optimize performance, temperature and power of next-gen CPUs. As a result, CPU efficiency is improved and power is transferred to the GPU for more performance in creative applications.
In compute-heavy apps like Adobe Premiere, Blender and Matlab, NVIDIA has developed Rapid Core Scaling. It enables the GPU to sense the real-time demands of applications and use only the cores it needs rather than all of them. This frees up power that can be used to run the active cores at higher frequencies, delivering up to 3x more performance for intensive creative work on the go.
ASUS, MSI and Razer are launching new laptops with a wide range of designs — and up to GeForce RTX 3080 Ti GPUs — starting in February.
Paint by AI With NVIDIA Canvas
Bolstered by work from the NVIDIA Research team developing GauGAN2, NVIDIA Canvas is now available with four times higher resolution and five new materials.
The GauGAN2 AI model incorporated in the latest update helps deliver more realistic images with greater definition and fewer artifacts.
Five new materials — straw, flowers, mud, dirt and bush — liven up and create richer landscape environments.
Creators can download the January Studio Driver, available now with improved performance and reliability for the Omniverse and Canvas updates.
With monthly updates, NVIDIA Studio Drivers deliver smooth performance on creative applications and the best possible experience when using NVIDIA GPUs. Extensive multi-app workflow testing ensures the latest apps run smoothly.
New Desktop Solutions, Coming Soon
Finally, the GeForce RTX 3050 GPU brings even more choice for creators. The company’s new entry-level GPU provides the most accessible way of getting great RTX benefits — real-time ray tracing, AI, a top-notch video encoder and video acceleration. Starting at just $279, it’s a great way to start creating with RTX. Look for availability from partners worldwide on Jan. 27.
One more thing: Keep an eye out for more information on GeForce RTX 3090 Ti later this month. It’ll have a huge 24GB of lightning-fast video memory, making it perfect for conquering nearly any creative task.
