Nowadays, denoinsing is limited to blurring the pixels to ensure that there is not enough detail in the final image. Instead, thanks to AI, denoinsing can create pixels so that the final product looks as if we rendered the image with high quality settings and higher resolution.
In any case, Nvidia is not the only one that goes in this direction, as Disney also moves in this direction and the application of this technology was already brought on the screen with the film Finding Dory.
What does this mean for us as users? It`s easy to understand.
In the future there will be much more real time on the internet. In the future, rendering will change dramatically and no longer be a process that won`t take many minutes, hours or even days to calculate. On the contrary, it will be a queation of moments, because the AI will perform so much in the future, what the GPU and/or CPU could not reproduce so far.
