Nvidia presented the new RTX 500 and RTX 1000 video cards for professionals

Video adapters of the new generation are aimed at professional-level laptops

At the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, ​​Nvidia presented another batch video cards for portable devices. But this time not gaming, but professional. They became them RTX 500 and RTX 1000 based on the Ada Lovelace microarchitecture. Despite the focus on laptops, both models can offer increased graphics performance and, which is especially relevant in 2024, deep support for artificial intelligence.

Inexpensive video cards for working laptops

RTX 500 and 1000 are entry-level graphics cards, and they are also aimed exclusively at laptops. Therefore, Nvidia engineers faced a difficult task. The company has had no shortage of desktop adapters aimed at development IIBut the productivity of entry-level portable solutions was objectively lacking. They needed to endow them with sufficient performance to work with generative neural networks at minimum sizes and low TGP.

Traditionally, the younger version uses a cut-down version of the crystal, but the basis of both video adapters lies AD107 graphics processorwhich is also used in production GeForce RTX 4060 graphics card. This allows you to get an exemplary impression of the technical potential of new products, which will be at least not worse.

Both adapters are based on the AD107 GPU used in the RTX 4060

Someone even calls it new video cards analogues of RTX 4050M. They have a similar technical base, but, of course, a different purpose and audience. At least for games, the new products will obviously not work in the best way, even despite the support. DLSS 3th generation They remain focused on professionals with all the emanations.

Characteristics of RTX 500 and RTX 1000 video cards may look inconspicuous on paper, but in fact their potential is truly enormous. The performance of the younger version is 9.2 tflops, and the older version is 12.1 tflops against 7 and 7.5 tflops in the previous generation adapters.

Nvidia has tried to make sure that they do not so much complement the CPU in terms of performance as they relieve it. Built-in neuroprocessors, which are the basis of the new adapters, allow you to noticeably unload the CPU, reducing the computational load placed on it when working with models such as Stable Diffusion by 15-20%.

The new adapters are based on the base Nvidia Ada Lovelacewhich favorably differs from the micro-architecture of the previous generation. In fact, it offers the following benefits:

  • Ray tracing performance has doubled thanks to the third-generation RT cores.

  • Bandwidth has increased by more than 2 times thanks to fourth-generation tensor cores.

  • Performance of CUDA cores increased by 30%.

  • Dedicated video memory (4GB for RTX 500) and (up to 6GB for RTX 1000) allows users to run demanding 3D applications and games, as well as complete complex rendering and modeling projects.

  • DLSS 3 provides a breakthrough in the field of graphics, increasing the performance of games due to the generation of additional frames in high quality.

  • The eighth-generation Nvidia AV1 compression standard encodes video 40% more efficiently than H.264.

Real RTX 500 and RTX 1000 performance will vary depending on the tasks being performed. It will be the highest in applications for 3D modeling and rendering, image processing, video conferencing with artificial intelligence effects. Simply put, thanks to the new video cards, blurring and artificial backgrounds in Zoom calls and in other applications will be more natural, and the user’s movements will not violate their integrity.

Nvidia promises that devices based on RTX 500 and RTX 1000 adapters will go on sale already this spring. They will be available as part of mobile workstations from Nvidia partner companies. At the moment, the launch of work laptops with new video cards from Dell, HP, Lenovo and MSI has been announced. It is possible that in fact the number of people willing to use the new GPUs will increase and it will be possible to buy them even in Russia.
