Nvidia Announces GeForce RTX 20 Series Coming This September

NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 2080 leapfrogs the 1080 Ti for $800

The Nvidia GeForce RTX series brings real-time ray tracing, artificial intelligence, and programmable shading together for a new PC gaming experience. The RTX 2080 drops performance to 8 Giga Rays per second, 60T RTX-OPS, and a 8GB frame buffer, and it will start at $699 excluding tax. It revealed the GeForce RTX 2070 ($500 USD), RTX 2080 ($700), and RTX 2080 Ti ($1000), all of which will launch on September 20, 2018. With ray-tracing, an in-game graphics engine can depict light that will accurately bounce and diffuse across a room in a more realistic fashion.

NVIDIA is offering a "Founder's Edition" card with similar specs, but it can be overclocked to 1800 MHz, compared to 1710 Hz for the regular model. The RTX 2070 card comes with the same memory configuration at the RTX 2080, only sporting a handful fewer CUDA cores; 2,304 to be exact.

Nvidia will sell the new RTX cards through partners such as Asus, EVGA, and Gigabyte. A tank firing off-screen might now be able to be seen directly, but with the RTX ray tracing enabled you'd be able to see the reflection of the explosion rendered in real time by reflective surfaces across the map.

Nvida even says to more accurately judge the performance of new RTX cards, it had to create a new unit of measure called RTX OPS, which includes a combination of standard shader performance, floating point integer performance, ray tracing performance and AI performance.

The new GeForce RTX series is its first gaming GPUs based on the company's new Turing architecture and the RTX platform, which fuses next-generation shaders with real-time ray tracing, and all-new AI capabilities.

Developers previously could "fake" ray-tracing effects, but this involved the laborious process of mapping the way light moved across a virtual setting, from scene to scene, Huang said.

In India, listings for four Zotac GeForce RTX graphics cards have appeared online with prices starting at Rs. 70,990 for a GeForce RTX 2080 with a basic blower-style cooler, and going up to Rs. 1,09,990 for a triple-fan overclocked Amp Edition version of the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti. This is also when we expect reviews and further details to go live, but we haven't had this confirmed as of yet.
