NVIDIA Debuts $1,200 GeForce RTX GPUs Made for Gamers

PNY accidentally revealed its Ge Force RTX 2080 Ti XLR8 OC Edition GPU

Let's get to it...

In addition to some impressive game demos and trailers, which included Shadow of the Tomb Raider and, of course, Battlefield V, Nvidia showcased its own video, dubbed Project Sol, which shows the power of the RTX Ray Tracing.

To deliver record-breaking performance, the factory-overclocked GeForce RTX 2080 uses 225 Watts of power out of the box and tops out around 280 Watts for enthusiasts chasing ultimate overclocking performance.

While the buzz around these new cards is mostly about the ray tracing technology powering them, they're also a general step-up from the cards on the market right now. Gamers will be able to play the most recent and upcoming titles in 4K with HDR at frame rates exceeding 60fps, according to Huang. It's not exactly photorealistic, but it's a significant improvement over current rendering techniques.

Nvidia announced a total of three RTX series graphics cards, the RTX 2070, RTX 2080 and the flagship RTX 2080 Ti.

The non-Founders Edition versions of the cards, which aren't available through the Nvidia website, start from $US499 internationally. All graphics cards will feature 8GB of brand new GDDR6 memory on a 256-bit bus. The RTX listings for the cards have since been taken down.

And if you do this enough times and with enough speed, you could use this technique to draw an entire game with a completely new level of fidelity that wasn't really feasible before. "Computer graphics will never be the same again", he said at the Gamescom conference in Germany. One of the major selling points of the Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti is that it supports Real Time Ray Tracing. 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. It's a conundrum that has put paid to many promising technologies in the past, but Nvidia - though a partnership programme which sees it funding development itself - has headed the problem off at the pass and promises wide-spread support when the cards launch next month. We'll revisit all of that in the coming days. The good news is that the hardcore won't have long to wait at all. Consumer graphics cards based on Turing will be available for pre-order immediately with deliveries in September and October. For now, you can preorder some of the models above. That comes as a natural result of the new cards ditching the company's previous Twin Frozr VI cooler used on the 10-series Gaming X boards and going with a newly designed triple-fan cooler bearing modest RGB LED accents.
