It appears that RTX finally has the chance to make an apperance in cloud gaming services in the future as Nvidia has just revealed their RTX server pods. A pod can accomodate up to 32 servers, each with the capability of being loaded with up to 40 RTX cards. When fully maximized a pod would have a whopping 1,280 RTX GPUs! Using Nvidia’s grid technology a pod can accomodate up to 10,000 users.
NVIDIA RTX Servers — which include fully optimized software stacks available for Optix RTX rendering, gaming, VR and AR, and professional visualization applications — can now deliver cinematic-quality graphics enhanced by ray tracing for far less than just the cost of electricity for a CPU-based rendering cluster with the same performance.
The RTX server pods are compatible with the Quadro RTX 4000 and Quadro RTX 6000 GPUs. Currently Paperspace and Shadow utilize the previous generation Quadro cards with Shadow featuring the P5000 and Paperspace offering multiple different configurations.
