Most interesting is that it seems Nvidia will be releasing both the base RTX 2080 and the more powerful Titanium model at roughly the same time, as opposed to several months apart like the company usually does.
Nvidia's presentation included live in-game demonstrations of ray tracing in action from Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Metro: Exodus, Assetto Corsa, and Battlefield V. The new Turning GPU architecture along with the new NVIDIA RTX platform is able to run up to 6X the performance of previous-generation GPUs and enables the power of real-time ray tracing along with powerful artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning enhanced graphics.
But Nvidia's founder and boss Jensen Huang has touted the Turing architecture as the largest development in Nvidia's history noting it's the "greatest leap since we created CUDA" and as such has the power and architecture to handle real-time ray-tracing in graphics cards the average Joe or Jill can buy.
Tyson Fury & Deontay Wilder Had To Be Separated At Belfast Weigh-Ins
The WBC heavyweight champion has already arrived in Belfast to crash the party and he made his presence known at the weigh-ins. They are pricing it like that largely due to Wilder's last performance against Luis Ortiz, where he was given a few headaches.
Beyond that we don't know a huge amount about the new cards, and details are probably still going to be a little thin even after the pre-Gamescom event. All graphics cards will feature 8GB of brand new GDDR6 memory on a 256-bit bus. In terms of ray tracing power, they can push out 8 and 10 Gigarays per second respectively, or 60 trillion and 78 trillion RTX operations per second.
The GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and RTX 2080 are available for pre-order today, and will ship on September 20. You'll notice that the RTX 2080 Ti has its GPU clocked lower than the RTX 2080, but it has much more CUDA cores (4352 versus 2944). The GeForce RTX 2070 will follow in October. This includes the GeForce RTX 2070 priced at $599 (USD), GeForce RTX 2080 for $799 and the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti for $1,199. MSI's Gaming Trio and Duke series feature dual-slot triple fan cooling solutions and overclocked GPUs. It's been expected for some time that the company will be unveiling the new set of RTX 2080 video cards, and a new leak offering detailed specs all but confirms the upcoming reveal.
