NVIDIA Turing Graphics Reinvented

The greatest leap since the invention of the NVIDIA CUDA GPU in 2006, the NVIDIA Turing architecture fuses real-time ray tracing, AI, simulation, and rasterization to fundamentally change computer graphics. Turing features new RT Cores to accelerate ray tracing and new Tensor Cores for AI inference. Together, for the first time, they make real-time ray tracing possible, opening up amazing creative possibilities that until recently were assumed to be years away. The Turing architecture is armed with dedicated ray-tracing processors called RT Cores that accelerate the computation of how light and sound travel in 3D environments by up to 10 Giga Rays per second. Turing accelerates real-time ray tracing by 25X over the previous-generation NVIDIA Pascal and can render final frames for film effects more than 30X faster than CPUs. The Turing architecture dramatically improves raster performance over the previous-generation Pascal with an enhanced graphics pipeline and new programmable shading technologies. These technologies include variable-rate shading, texture-space shading, and multi-view rendering, which enable more fluid interactivity with large models and scenes and improved virtual reality experiences.

Quadro RTX GPUs are designed for the most demanding visual computing workloads, such as those used in film and video content creation; automotive and architectural design; and scientific visualization. They far surpass the previous generation with groundbreaking technologies, including:
  • New RT Cores to enable real-time ray tracing of objects and environments with physically accurate shadows, reflections, refractions and global illumination.
  • Turing Tensor Cores to accelerate deep neural network training and inference, which are critical to powering AI-enhanced rendering, products and services.
  • New Turing Streaming Multiprocessor architecture, featuring up to 4,608 CUDA® cores, delivers up to 16 trillion floating point operations in parallel with 16 trillion integer operations per second to accelerate complex simulation of real-world physics.
  • Advanced programmable shading technologies to improve the performance of complex visual effects and graphics-intensive experiences.
  • First implementation of ultra-fast Samsung 16Gb GDDR6 memory to support more complex designs, massive architectural datasets, 8K movie content and more.
  • NVIDIA NVLink® to combine two GPUs with a high-speed link to scale memory capacity up to 96GB and drive higher performance with up to 100GB/s of data transfer.
  • Hardware support for USB Type-C™ and VirtualLink™(1), a new open industry standard being developed to meet the power, display and bandwidth demands of next-generation VR headsets through a single USB-C™ connector.
  • New and enhanced technologies to improve performance of VR applications, including Variable Rate Shading, Multi-View Rendering and VRWorks Audio.
Psychsoftpc of Quincy, MA is an artisanal computer company, so they hand craft all of their machines and subscribe to a Just In Time philosophy. They are constantly evolving their machines with the very latest technology and are often the first to put out machines that take advantage of the latest tech because they don't stock parts or pre-build machines which have to moved before they can use the most advanced technology in their machines. So while the other guys can take months to put out machines with the latest, fastest tech, the folks @ Psychsoftpc can take days. Thomas Friedman in his book Thank You For Being Late says we must constantly adapt to rapid shifts in technology because of accelerating technological change, specifically the impact of Moore's Law and market forces which are linking the world more powerfully than ever before. Unlike the other guys out there, Psychsoftpc embraces this. They are constantly adapting and improving their machines. They don't release new model names, just improve the machines they build with the latest tech as it comes out.

Psychsoftpc Announces Blockchain for Cooperation for Medical Research

Psychsoftpc Announces Blockchain for Cooperation for Medical Research

A blockchain system to give medical researchers a platform for secure cooperation on research projects

  • One problem with healthcare and medical research today is the isolation of researchers in seeking cures for major and orphan diseases. While there are many people world wide researching cures, there is no secure way for them to cooperate over distances. Psychsoftpc is developing a Blockchain solution which will allow people world wide to work on finding a cure together and thus speed up the process of solving these problems. Each disease can have its own blockchain with only authorized members having access to research and progress. Since it is blockchain based, research can not be altered, deleted or edited making it a secure environment for finding cures. We will also offer researchers time on a Tesla Cluster Supercomputer for medical research purposes. Set to eventually be one of the 500 fastest supercomputers in the world it will provide medical researchers working alone or with little funding access to computer resources that are only now available to well funded labs. This is important because we need to bring medical research into the 21st century and allow for secure research cooperation across borders

  • Blockchain is a technological advance with far reaching implications that will transform financial services, health care, logistics, retail, manufacturing and many other industries. A blockchain is a distributed database, so the devices storing the database are not all connected to one local machine but spread out over multiple machines with each machine maintaining its own copy. Blockchain software maintains a growing list of ordered records or blocks, hence the name. Each block has a timestamp and a link to a previous block. Cryptography ensures that users can only edit the parts of the blockchain that they are allowed to by possessing the private keys necessary to write to the file. It also ensures that every copy of the distributed blockchain is up to date.

  • The folks at Psychsoftpc believe that blockchain is good for more than cryptocurrency and that the focus on cryptocurrency takes away from the benefits that blockchain can provide. Psychsoftpc's blockchain project will provide a means for researchers throughout the globe to work on finding cures for diseases. So it is a blockchain project that follows Thoreau "Be not simply good, be good for something." This will fundamentally change the way people perform medical research and lead to cures for not only major diseases like cancer and heart disease but facilitate finding cures for orphan diseases that currently do not receive enough attention.

  • This project is being crowdfunded on Indiegogo. Funders of $25 will receive an acknowledgement certificate suitable for framing. Funders of $50 will receive the certificate and periodic progress reports of conducted research. Funders of $1500 will receive time on our Tesla Cluster Supercomputer.

    Psychsoftpc Announces Gaming Computers With NVidia RTX 2080 Ti, RTX 2080 & 2070 GPUs

    Psychsoftpc Announces Gaming PCs With NVidia RTX 2080 Ti, RTX 2080 & 2070 GPUs



    NVidia's newest high performing graphics cards will be available on September 20th and as usual Psychsoftpc will upgrade their machines to these cards as soon as they are available. The latest in a long line of cutting edge graphics cards, the RTX 20xx cards are powered by the Turing GPU architecture and the all-new RTX platform. This gives folks up to 6X the performance of previous-generation graphics cards and brings the power of real-time ray tracing and AI to games. The revolutionary NVIDIA Turing architecture combined with the all new RTX platform fuses together real-time ray tracing, artificial intelligence and programmable shading to give a whole new way to experience games. Ray tracing is the definitive solution for lifelike lighting, reflections and shadows, offering a level of realism far beyond what’s possible using traditional rendering techniques. Turing is the first GPU capable of real-time ray tracing. Ray tracing is the standard for applications such as visual effects in the film industry, but it is extremely computation intensive, so it has been impractical for gaming, until now. Artificial Intelligence is driving the greatest technology advancement in history and Turing is bringing it to computer graphics. Armed with Tensor Cores that deliver AI computing horsepower, Turing GPUs can run powerful AI algorithms in real time to create crisp, clear, lifelike images and special effects that were never before possible. Programmable shaders defined modern graphics. Turing GPUs feature new advanced shading technologies that are more powerful, flexible and efficient than ever before. Combined with GDDR6, the world’s fastest memory, this performance lets gamers tear through games with maxed-out settings and incredibly high frame rates.

    Of course, such a high powered GPU needs an equally powerful gaming computer to contain it, a machine that's more than a match for all that technology. Psychsoftpc Psyborg Extreme Gaming PCs are the answer. Made with the latest Intel Core CPUs, including the amazingly fast Core X Series, these machines can keep up with the RTX GPUs and offer extreme performance not just for gaming but photo editing, virtual reality, video creation and live streaming. Because while the cards and machines say they are for gaming (and they are great for that), these machines and GPUs can do so much more. So if folks want a computer for graphic design or digital photography or editing that video they shot on their GoPro or 3d rendering these are the computers for that too. And with Tensor Cores, these machines are great for AI applications and Machine Learning Algorithms. So don't think of these as just gaming machines. The possibilities for them are many.

    Psychsoftpc is an artisanal computer company based in Quincy, MA, so they hand craft all of their machines and subscribe to a Just In Time philosophy. They are constantly evolving their machines with the very latest technology and are often the first to put out machines that take advantage of the latest tech because they don't stock parts or pre-build machines which have to moved before they can use the most advanced technology in their machines.

Unlike the other guys out there, Psychsoftpc embraces this. They are constantly adapting and improving their machines. They don't release new model names, just improve the machines they build with the latest tech as it comes out.

    Psychsoftpc was among the first companies to offer Linux as a preinstalled option on its machines, the first to offer turn key entry level Linux Cluster Supercomputers affordable for small businesses, the first to offer a Digital Signage controller PC, one of a select few recognized by NVidia and Autocad for quality and capability in High Performance Professional Workstation design and manufacture, the first and only company to offer a Point of Sale Print Signage solution (currently in use in many major US retail chains), one of the first five companies to make authorized Tesla Personal Supercomputers, the first to offer Tesla Personal Supercomputers with Linux, the first and one of only two companies to produce turn key Hadoop Clusters for Big Data Analysis and the first to make Virtual Reality Ready Gaming Computers all while maintaining complete manufacturing in the USA.

    Announcing the Psychlone Cryptocurrency Mining & Blockchain Computer from Psychsoftpc of Quincy, MA USA

    If you haven't been living under a rock lately, you have heard all about Cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, Ethereum, Monero, ZCash, Litecoin, Dash, Ripple and of course Blockchain. It is the hot new thing and it seems everyone is getting into it with a passion. Blockchain has the potential to dramatically change document sharing, secure reord keeping and financial transactions. The technology behind Bitcoin and other Cryptocurrencies allows for a secure database made up of encrypted blocks accessible by members who hold keys. It prevents unauthorized changes to data by validating everything that goes in the blockchain. Bitcoin, Ethereum and other Cryptocurrencies are being traded for investment and also mined which involves solving complex math problems to discover blocks in the chain. Once ta block is found the discoverer is rewarded with a certain amount oif the cryptocurrency. For example, Bitcoin rewards the block finder with 25 Bitcoins currently valued at just over $8000 each.  In order to mine cryptocurrency or develop and maintain Blockchain applications, a powerrful computer or cluster of such computers is required. Currently these machines utilize banks of High Performance Graphics Cards like those from NVidia to perform the hash calculations necessary to mine cryptocurrency and maintain Blockchain applications. To facilitate this process, Psychsoftpc, the High Performance Hand Crafted Computer manufacturer has developed the ultimate Blockchain and Cryptocurrency Mining Computer. Unlike all the other high performance computer guys out there, Psychsoftpc, the High Performance Hand Crafted Computer manufacturer has developed the ultimate Blockchain and Cryptocurrency Mining Computer. They are the first and only Gaming PC manufacturer to offer a cryptocurrency mining rig. So the choice for folks wanting to get into cryptocurrency mining is either buy it from them or try to build it themselves. And it's not easy. Trust them, they're professionals.
     
    Built with the same attention to detail and passion for performance that is present in the Psychlone Tesla Personal Supercomputers, the Psychlone Cryptocurrency Mining and Blockchain Computer is all that folks need to get started in Blockchain and Cryptocurrency mining of Bitcoin, Ethereum, Monero, ZCash, Litecoin, Dash & Ripple today. No need to build it themselves or figure out which parts to use, Psychsoftpc has done all the work. In keeping with their philosophy of providing service as well as performance, the system is totally turn key, folks just have to unbox, plug in and go. There is lots of information out there on how folks can build their own boxes, much of which is confusing. Psychsoftpc has done all the research and takes the confusion out of the game by providing a complete hand crafted system specifically tuned for Blockchain and crytptocurrency mining. Unlike ASICS which only do one thing, mine Bitcoin, their machines can mine any cryptocurrency and also be used to develop the customer's own blockchain applications. So they can create their own Blockchain applications with one of the great Cryptocurrency Mining and Blockchain Computers with GPU Computing from Psychsoftpc.

    Psychsoftpc is an artisanal computer company, so they hand craft all of their machines and subscribe to a Just In Time philosophy.

    The Downside of Artificial Intelligence



    While the AI proponents are all touting how great AI is and how it will change the world they are ignoring the impact it will have on jobs not only in the future but now. Let’s start with the autonomous cars or as I call them robocars. These are meant to replace drivers altogether. So in the next 5 to 10 years or even sooner, taxi drivers, Lyft and Uber drivers and truckers will all be replaced by AI. it goes beyond that however since Lyft, Uber and Google want to make it illegal for a human to drive and ultimately to even own an automobile. This implements a cascade effect on all automobile related jobs. Since there would be fewer cars on the road, there would be fewer mechanics to service them, fewer gas stations to fuel them and fewer insurance agents to insure them. Google's plan is to control robocars completely from building to maintenance meaning every step of the way will be handled by Google employees, so Google factory workers, Google mechanics, Google gas stations and Google insurance.

    This is just the one segment. AI can and will be pervasive in the workplace and society. AI is being pushed to replace doctors, lawyers, financial planners, accountants and other professions that are now high paying positions handled by humans. The AI proponents are comparing this to the industrial revolution and saying that new jobs will be created to replace the old just ad it happened in the first one. This is not the case. in the industrial revolution, low paying manual jobs were replaced by machines but maintaining these machines and assembly line work created jobs that replaced the old and the professions were left alone. This will not happen with AI. AI is not after replacing physical labor to make life easier, it is after us. When a doctor is replaced by AI, what newly created job can this person get that will be as professionally and financially rewarding? What new job can be created when an entire profession is replaced by machine?  The result of AI will be massive unemployment and poverty and no one is addressing these issues now. As I said earlier, AI does not only effect the job it replaces but has a cascade effect impacting all jobs related to that first job. So replacing lawyers impacts legal support staff, researchers, clerks, the justice system, police, insurers, copiers, computer sales, secretaries, printers, housing sales, construction and on and on. This needs to be addressed now or we are in for a massive problem and sooner than later.

    There are also ethical issues with AI that we haven't faced before. Should we let an AI decide patient care? How should an AI make decisions when driving that involve injury to pedestrians, other drivers and passengers? Should an AI be used to spy on people? To what degree should an AI be allowed to determine things about an individual by analyzing big data collected by stores and on line presence? To what level should an AI be used to target individuals for sales and offers determined by data analysis? Do we trust an AI to have our (human) best interest at heart? How do we prevent perverse instantiation (the implementation of a benign final goal through deleterious methods unforeseen by a human programmer)?  There is a concept called Perverse Instantiation where an AI is given a goal and accomplishes it in an unexpected and harmful manner. For instance the goal could be to reduce health care costs. This could be accomplished by the AI by identifying those with a predisposition to certain illnesses and denying them treatment or health care coverage. It could also be given the task to reduce pollution and reason that the best way to accomplish this would be to decrease the human population. Just because wee have a moral compass doesn't mean that an AI does. An AI hasn't een exposed to years of socialization and approaches problems logically with a preference for expediency.

    All these issues need to be addressed now, before we can no longer do anything about them.
