Lately I’ve seen a lot of people on the internet asking how to enable Nvidias Performance Mode on their Geforce powered computers. Like many others I had problem getting it to function properly and completing the performance scan didn’t work. After a while I found a solution that actually worked! Also before we continue bare in mind that the performance mode is for RTX powered cards only which means 20x cards. IT WILL NOT WORK ON NONE RTX CARDS! Also, unlesss a new update have rolles in the performance mode is a experimantal feature so you have to enable experimental features in the Geforce Experience app in settings. Let’s get to it. The whole process to get this working is about 5 minutes plus 20-40 minutes for the scan to complete. 1. NVIDIA Control Panel We are going to start by opening the Control Panel by right clicking on your desktop and choose NVIDIA Control Panel. 2. Restore Settings It is here the magic happens. The problem you have been experiencing is that the performance scan is conflicting with settings that you have most likely already made inside the control panel. When the scan goes through the settings it find conflicting changes and then aborts. What we need to do is restore everything to default settings by going to Manage 3D Settings and then pressing the Restore button and then accepting by pressing Yes. Restoring default settings might take a few seconds so just let it happen. 3. Performance Mode When the restore is complete open the Geforce Experience overlay by pressing the keyboard shortcut you've set (in my case Alt-F11, default is Alt-X) and then hitting the Performance button. Like said above, this might be a experimental feature still so make sure you've enabled experimental features in the Geforce Experience app settings, not the overlay settings. 4. Enable Performance And finally you can go ahead and press Enable automatic tuning toggle and watch the magic happen! Or make your own settings, just be careful with manual settings. And remember, the initial scan can take up to 40 minutes to complete and you should not do anything to your PC while the scan is in progress. Take a walk, get some fresh air and come back to a newly performance tuned rig!
NVIDIA researchers have come up with some new artificial intelligence (AI) technology that can help fill in the blanks with respect to images that have either been corrupted or otherwise having missing details. With a team lead by NVIDIA’s Guilin Liu, missing pixels can be quickly reclaimed with stunning results. This process, which NVIDIA calls image inpainting, can be used not only for restoring missing image pixels, but also for removing an unwanted object from a scene and filling it back in. If this sounds familiar, it’s because Photoshop has been able to perform similar operations with Content-Aware Fill, which was introduced in the CS5 release. However, NVIDIA goes a step further given that inpainting was trained using 55,116 random streaks and holes to improve its performance. Another 25,000 were generated to further test the algorithm’s accuracy. “Our model can robustly handle holes of any shape, size location, or distance from the image borders,” wrote the NVIDIA researchers in a paper on inpainting. “Further, our model gracefully handles holes of increasing size. “To the best of our knowledge, we are the first to demonstrate the efficacy of deep learning image inpainting models on irregularly shaped holes.” NVIDIA of course has plenty of high-powered hardware to pull from for its machine learning exercises, and in this case used Tesla V100 GPUs linked up with a cuDNN-accelerated PyTorch deep learning framework. To see NVIDIA image inpainting in action, simply take a look at the embedded video above. The results are remarkable, especially when looking at woman’s “gouged out” eyes being replaced with two new ones. The results aren’t always perfect, but it’s still a remarkable achievement that shows a lot of promise. Eventually, NVIDIA says that its image inpainting technique could be integrated into photo editing software.
It was actually thought that Nvidia would launch its new RTX 3070 on October 15, but it seems that the graphics card manufacturers have pulled the emergency brake on these plans. Instead, they aim to launch the card on October 29 instead. The reason behind this, according to Nvidia, is that the company wants to produce more cards, so that all buyers will be able to buy the card directly on the release day, which sounds quite reasonable considering the RTX 3080 release that went like this. In a statement, Nvidia says this: [su_quote]Production of GeForce RTX 3070 graphics cards are ramping quickly. We've heard from many of you that there should be more cards available on launch day. To help make that happen, we are updating the availability date to Thursday, October 29th. We know this may be disappointing to those eager to purchase a GeForce RTX 3070 as soon as possible, however this shift will help our global partners get more graphics cards into the hands of gamers on launch day.[/su_quote]
