3D-Tech News Around The Web / NVIDIA Volta GPU thread
« Last post by JeGX on April 18, 2017, 02:30:20 PM »
First news about Volta appeared few years ago in 2013:

According to these recent rumors, NVIDIA Volta-based graphics cards (GeForce 20 Series - GTX 2080...) should arrive during Q3 2017:

- NVIDIA to launch next-gen Volta-based GeForce in Q3 2017
- Pascal lineup is complete now that NVIDIA launched Titan Xp and is about to launch GeForce GTX 1030
- Based on their traditional upgrade cycle we should expect Volta by the end of the year or early 2018, but NVIDIA changed plans
- Market situation in Q1-2017 was bad, graphics and other hardware sales in decline, price war, meager profits, sales not increasing the way they want to (vicious circle)
- According to the latest news, NVIDIA plans to release GeForce 20 series in advance, it is now expected to be released in the third quarter of this year
- GeForce 20 series product prices, market positioning will be replanned
- By launching sooner than expected they will be able to increase prices of single cards and increase profits 

- Rumour: Nvidia Has Accelerated Volta GPU Plans, GeForce GTX 2080 to Launch in Q3 2017

VK-Z output is blanked now on my rig as mentioned on the frontpage by an other user.

I see two possible explanations:

1/ the vkz.exe has been deleted by your antivirus

2/ vkz.exe is there but is not able to update the vkz.txt file. In that case, try to start GPU Caps Viewer with admin rights and let me know.

2017.1.0b1 Release Notes (new since a6)

 Known Issues
  • Animation: Reading from Animator.rootPosition and Animator.rootRotation during OnAnimatorMove gives wrong results. Use Animator.deltaPosition and Animator.deltaRotation instead. (899049)
  • Audio: AudioSource attached to VideoPlayer produces choppy sound when playing certain mp4 files with VideoPlayer created from script (895458)
  • Editor: "The system cannot find file specified" error while opening the project for the first time. Deleting Library folder resolves the issue. (895343)
  • Editor: Editor crashes on attempt to open some 5.5 compatible audio projects. (880653)
  • Editor: Text in Editor becomes red after dismissing EditorUtility.DisplayDialog() popups. (886650)
  • Editor: Unity crashes when playing a scene with maximized game view (894572)

  • Graphics: Debug GFX overlay is drawn on top of objects. (851379)
  • iOS: OnGUI fails to draw any elements on iOS (883482)
  • Physics: Crash when reverting prefab which had Rigidbody and Joint deleted, and then undoing the revert. (870498)
  • VR: Rendering problems on Pixel Daydream when using 4x or 8x MSAA with single-pass stereo.  This is due to driver issues, so the problem will be addressed via a driver update, independently of Unity releases. (-)
  • Collab: In-Progress. In-Progress allows developers using Unity Collaborate to see who else on their team has made local changes to a Scene or Prefab before those changes have been published.
  • Graphics: Added LineUtility class and 'LineRenderer.Simply' function. Optimize your lines and curves by using the LineUtility to create a simplified version with a similar shape.
  • Graphics: Added memoryless mode to RenderTexture, accessed through new property RenderTexture.memorylessMode.
  • Playables: Timeline Editor and Runtime API. A tool for sequencing animation, scripts and audio.
  • Animation: Fixed adding State/StateMachines with invalid names. (882122)
  • Editor: Fixed a crash in Editor caused by null Handles. Graphics.DrawMeshNow will now throw an exception if the mesh is null. (893112)
  • Particles: Removing a ParticleSystem on a GameObject that has a component with RequireComponent(Renderer) is now correctly prevented. (888048)
  • Particles: Size over lifetime now correctly affects collider size, and sub-emitter inheritance. (792289)

  • Animation: Fixed performance regression when destroying many game objects with an Animator. (889109)
  • Build Pipeline: Building many AssetBundles should no longer spend a long time updating the BuildReport between each bundle (849376)
  • Build Pipeline: Fixed SetScriptingDefineSymbolsForGroup() failing for BuildTargetGroup.Switch (863992)
