Announcing GeForce RTX

After months of rumors, NVIDIA’s new GEFORCE RTX 2000 series GPUs were released this week at Gamescom revealing Geforce RTX 2080Ti, 2080 & 2070. Starting at $500, the 2080Ti & 2080 cards are set to begin shipping in mid September and as for the 2070 sadly there’s no mentioned pre-order date yet. With the release of GeForce RTX cards Nvidia shoots up their new ‘Turing’ architecture which accelerates real-time ray-tracing operations to bring the user more realistic lighting and shading to games and CGI. The performance gap between this new Turing generation and the older Pascal architecture is being advertised as nothing short of revolutionary.

The GeForce RTX cards has a familliar lineup to the prior 10 series cards and all of the GeForce RTX cards offer hardware supports for the VirtualLink VR connector, which is designed for the next generation of VR headsets. It appears that all of NVIDIA’s ‘Founder’s Edition’ GPUs will include the USB-C based port alongside DisplayPort and HDMI ports.

GeForce GPU Ray Tracing Performance* Memory Starting At Founders Edition
RTX 2080 Ti 10 GigaRays/sec 78T RTX-OPS 11GB $1,000 $1,200
RTX 2080 8 GigaRays/sec 60T RTX-OPS 8GB $700 $800
RTX 2070 6 GigaRays/sec 45T RTX-OPS 8GB $500 $600

The new GPUs are equipped with Tensor Cores that can provide over 100 TFLOPs of AI computing power, allowing the GPUs to create and run algorithms to make graphics sharper and more defined than ever.
