VXGI – Voxel Global Illumination

Realistic lighting is among the most challenging problems faced in real-time graphics. Simulating both direct and indirect lighting, such as reflections for dynamic scenes, has to date been too computationally demanding for GPUs beyond those available to professionals. Game developers have been forced to use lighting tricks that compromise scene realism.

Maxwell overcomes these limitations, combining the performance and programmability required to model both direct and indirect light sources. It does so by deploying VXGI, a new NVIDIA technique to accurately depict indirect lighting, including diffuse lighting, specular lighting and reflections.Realistic lighting is among the most challenging problems faced in real-time graphics. Simulating both direct and indirect lighting, such as reflections for dynamic scenes, has to date been too computationally demanding for GPUs beyond those available to professionals. Game developers have been forced to use lighting tricks that compromise scene realism.

VXGI is being added to NVIDIA GameWorks™, the world’s most advanced game graphics library, so developers can build future games with dynamic environments filled with rich, natural lighting and breathtaking realism. It is being integrated into popular games engines like Unreal Engine 4, and will be available to developers later this year.

MFAA – Multi-Frame Sampled Anti-Aliasing

NVIDIA engineers have given the GTX 980 and 970 a further performance boost with a new technique called multi-frame sampled anti-aliasing, which leverages new capabilities in Maxwell GPUs.

MFAA varies the anti-aliasing sample patterns across pixels both within an individual frame and between multiple frames. It then uses a newly developed synthesis filter to produce the best image quality and does so faster than conventional anti-aliasing. For gamers, MFAA yields image quality approaching that of 4xMSAA at the cost of 2xMSAA—enabling titles to run faster while maintaining high levels of image quality.

DSR – Dynamic Super Resolution

The GeForce GTX 980 and GTX 970 GPUs can deliver a higher fidelity gaming experience even for those playing on standard 1080p displays. With Maxwell’s Dynamic Super Resolution technology, games can be rendered at 4K or other high-end resolutions and then scaled down to the native resolution on the user’s display using a 13-tap Gaussian filter. The resulting image is much higher quality than simply rendering directly to 1080p.

DSR is automatically enabled through GeForce Experience™, an NVIDIA application that automatically optimizes game settings for peak performance, downloads the latest drivers, and enables game streaming and in-game action capture. Gamers can turn on DSR and enjoy high-fidelity gaming with a single click of a button—without having to upgrade their monitor.

VR Direct

To deliver on the immersive potential of virtual reality, games require high frame rates and low latency. VR Direct technology incorporates a number of new features to increase performance, lower latency and increase compatibility for VR headsets. These features include:

  • VR SLI—provides heightened performance on virtual reality devices where multiple GPUs can be assigned a specific eye to render the stereo images faster.
  • Asynchronous Warp—cuts latency in half and quickly adjusts images as gamers move their heads, without the need to re-render new frames.
  • Auto Stereo—improves game compatibility for VR devices, such as Oculus Rift, and allows users to play games on select headsets that weren’t originally designed for VR.

We built Unreal Engine 4 using NVIDIA’s Kepler architecture but the GTX 980 and 970 GPUs, based on the new Maxwell architecture, are the most powerful, efficient GPUs for creating scenes of unprecedented detail across PC and VR experiences right now. Our developers are pushing the graphical high end with Maxwell GPUs.

, said Tim Sweeney, founder and CEO at Epic Games.

Compress images

Compress large images to small size with good quality

Compress large images to small sizePhotos are the best things to remember our memories from past. Back in time, we use to develop our photos and maintain physical albums. But today we live in a digital world. Everyone is now having High Definition Digital cameras, or High MegaPixel camera in their phones. These HD cameras give good quality pictures, but they consume a lot of space that can range from 1-5 MB/photo or more. So here comes the problem of storage. And also if we want to share our photos on social networking sites or with our friends, it would take time to upload these photos. So today we will see how to compress large images to small size with good quality.

For this you will need a windows OS running pc/laptop. It is very much easy to compress images so lets start.

How to compress large images to small size??

  1. First we need a software named Mass Image Compressor.
    Download it from here
  2. It is a very small Free software. Download it and install it on your pc/laptop. After installing launch the software from desktop.
  3. Select browse button near the 1st top box, and then select the folder from which you want to compress images(1.).
  4. Then choose the compress quality and size, or you can leave both as default 50 %. (2.). Now Press compress all button.(3.) (Refer IMAGE below)
  5. Within few seconds all your images will be compressed.
  6. A new folder named compressed will be formed within the original folder, and you can find all the compressed photos in it.

 How it works??

High definition photos from our digital cameras have more pixels, which gives a more clear view of photo. You can only notice the clarity when you zoom that HD photos, you will not easily see the pixels. More the pixels are, more the size of images.

Now this image compressors reduces the pixels in the photos. When you look at the photos normally you will not notice much. But when you zoom the photos you will see the pixels forming. So for normal viewing of photos these compressed images will be best in quality as well as size.

NOTE: Only compress HD images from Digital cameras or High-end phones. If you try to compress a low quality image, it will result in degradation of image quality, giving you a unclear image.

My Experience

I have a Cannon a4000 Digital camera. I clicked many photos from it. But the minimum size which i get of 1 image is 1.5-2.5 MB. I was sharing a album which was 140MB for 70 images. So i used this software to compress and guess what, the size of all 70 images reduced to 10 MB. And the quality was also good

Image before compression
