Nvidia Unveils All-New RTX Series GPUs

GeForce RTX 2080

ASUS, EVGA, Gigabyte, MSI, PNY, and Zotac will all have RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti cards available for pre-order today, will be available on September 20th. Powered by the new NVIDIA Turing™ GPU architecture and the revolutionary NVIDIA RTX platform, the new graphics cards bring together real-time ray tracing, artificial intelligence, and programmable shading.

You can pre-order "Founder Editions" of the all three graphics cards right now via the NVIDIA website. Followed by the RTX 2080, starting at $699.99 and finally the RTX 2080 Ti with a $999 price tag. Only the next generation Nvidia GPU's like RTX 2080, RTX 2070 and RTX 2080 Ti support this new feature.

There may be hand-wringing out there over Nvidia's new ray-tracing graphics family, but that isn't stopping PC vendors from jumping in with both PCIe slots. And Alienware just took the wraps off its new gaming desktops that will make use of Nvidia's brand new GPUs.

The presentation was punctuated with a host of detailed explanations about different lighting techniques, real-time ray tracing, and other rendering techniques. When the GTX 780, GTX 980 and the GTX 1080 were launched the Ti cards followed several months later.

The NVIDIA Ansel framework converts each screenshot into a piece of creative expression with a powerful in-game photo mode and lets the users share them directly on Facebook, Google Photos, and Imgur. Also, for the first time, real-time ray tracing in games is possible through NVIDIA RTX technology.

Thanks to ray tracing technology, games will be capable of displaying more realistic global illumination, and can accurately calculate reflections and light sources that exist outside of screen space.

New and enhanced technologies to improve performance of VR applications, including Variable Rate Shading, Multi-View Rendering and VRWorks Audio. The 8 (11 for RTX 2080 Ti) GB GDDR6X memory is running with 448 GB/S memory bandwidth. Instead, they will feature the new Type-C VirtualLink connector and NVLink, a multi-lane near-range communication link developed by Nvidia. For ray tracing specifically, the Turing architecture is four times faster than Volta-based workstation GPUs and ten times faster than the current Pascal GTX 10-series-not to be confused with overall performance outside of ray tracing.
