By LEE WERTH and MARK MILLMANThe Associated Press – LONDON (AP) It might be called the “next big thing,” but a monitor that can display four times the resolution of a TV and drive four times as much power could be years away.
The high-end Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, which debuted at Computex this week, promises to redefine gaming.
It features a whopping 4,096 pixels per inch, compared with just 512 pixels on a typical 1080p TV.
Nvidia says it has the technology to power an average HDTV for several years.
The company’s chief executive, Jen-Hsun Huang, has made gaming a major focus of his company.
And he wants Nvidia to take the technology seriously.
“I think that it’s time that people really take a leap forward, and that is to take their gaming experiences to the next level,” Huang told reporters at Computec in Las Vegas.
“There’s going to be more things that people can do with the technology.”
The technology in question is called “Ultra HD” or UHD, which stands for ultra-high-definition.
It is typically used in laptops and displays.
UHD televisions are typically more expensive, but Nvidia says the 1080 Ti will be more affordable than its competitors.
It’s the next generation of high-definition, and Nvidia’s chips are the only ones that can support 4K resolution, with resolutions of 2560×1600 and beyond.
The 1080 Ti is a gaming-grade graphics card that Nvidia has designed to run at up to 120 frames per second, which is much higher than a 1080p television.
It can also deliver 4K graphics with an impressive 90 percent higher resolution.
“We’re building a new industry in graphics,” Huang said.
“It will be built on the same technologies as the TV.”
Huang said the company was already in discussions with game studios to make a gaming experience with the 1080.
Huang says the company has made a big bet on the technology.
“It’s just like an investment,” he said.
But Huang said the 1080Ti is not yet ready to be a big-time player in gaming.
Nvidia is still waiting for the technology from game makers to catch on.
“Our next big step will be to build a gaming ecosystem,” he told the media.
“But right now, we’re not there yet.”
Huangs team is trying to develop a new way of making games.
It has built a new kind of computer to make games, with an embedded game engine that allows the computer to execute games on a single GPU.
It also has the ability to render graphics at higher resolutions, such as the 4K resolutions that are coming soon from next year’s consoles.
But Nvidia is also trying to build an ecosystem for games that works on a wide variety of platforms.
“That’s why we’re so excited about the new Nvidia GeForce GPU,” Huang was quoted as saying.
“This is a really important thing for us, because it’s going into a very diverse set of platforms.”
The company will be giving the company’s top-tier graphics cards away to the public for free.
The company also plans to give away the 1080T in early 2019, with the goal of selling 10 million of them in 2019.
The GeForce GTX 1070 is the companys flagship graphics card, and it’s designed to be an industry standard for the next decade.
The 1070 is expected to be priced around $1,500.
“This is the future of gaming,” Huang explained.
“In the next five years, we want to bring the power of a GeForce GTX 980 to the gaming market, with a price of $1000.”
The company has yet to announce a release date for the 1070.
“The GeForce Titan X will be an all-in-one gaming machine that is going to change the way people play,” Huang predicted.
