Nvidia's RTX 2080, RTX 2080 Ti Cards Arrive Sept. 20

Nvidia announces new raytracing-focused RTX 2080, 2080 Ti graphics cards

Nvidia's new chips, which are based on a recently updated architecture known as Turing, speed things up by rendering part of an image using this existing approach, and then tapping artificial intelligence to predict and fill in the remaining light effects. Nvidia just finished announcing its new line of RTX GPUs, which come with the new ray tracing capabilities and lots of other tech to enable huge upgrades in performance.

Top of the crop of new cards is the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti which leaked earlier today. It's a technology that has been used in films for years, producing the life-like reflections and computer generated visuals you see in massive productions like Iron Man. According to Nvidia, these are the retail prices for the third-party manufacturer cards.

The 2070 starts at $499, while the 2080 starts at $699, while the 2080 Ti starts at $999.

However, Metro Exodus is the game which is confirmed to use the Real Time Ray Tracing and will be taking full advantage of this new rendering technique from Nvidia.

Playing the new Rotterdam map in Battlefield 5, however, was more convincing of how good real-time ray tracing can make a game look. The RTX listings for the cards have since been taken down. In short, ray tracing technology is capable of more realistic global illumination and accurate projections of ambient light, and affords the ability to efficiently calculate the reflections and light sources that exist outside of the screen space.

Gamescom 2018 has been given an fantastic start from Nvidia by announcing their new high-end graphics cards, the GeForce RTX 2070, RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti.

The new NVIDIA GeForce RTX GPUs have reinvented graphics and set a new bar for performance.

The 2080 and 2080 Ti will be on shelves on September 20, while the 2070 will be available in October.

Alienware is wasting no time with Nvidia's hot new RTX GPUs. Nvidia's G-Sync feature means titles running under the card will have tear-free gameplay, refresh rates of up to 240 Hz, HDR, and 4K. Curiously, Nvidia's website lists higher prices than those announced during the Gamescom event, though it's unclear if that's a simple mistake. Second quarter revenues for several of its other business segments, including PC gaming, data centers and automotive, all beat estimates.

NVIDIA has launched Founders Edition versions of each of these three cards. Ray-Tracing will only be supported on these cards, so if you're looking for the absolute best that's more than just a resolution change, these cards are it.
