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

The factory overclocked GeForce RTX 2080 Founders Edition graphics card features a next-gen 8-phase power supply for maximum overclocking and dual-axial 13-blade fans coupled with a new vapor chamber for ultra-cool and quiet performance. via NVIDIANVIDIA RTX 20 Series Reference PCB - Overclockers Rejoice! Although, Nvidia's own United States website has already posted pictures and details of the new cards before the official announcement. Meanwhile, the RTX 2080, will go for $699. These cards will be succeeding Nvidia's current consumer flagship line, the GTX 10 series consisting of GTX 1070, GTX 1080 and GTX 1080 Ti.

The Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti is a beast - clocking in with 11GB of GDDR6 RAM and clocked at 14Gbps.

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.

Eidos Montréal's Shadow of the Tomb Raider is inevitably all about shadows, showing how much softer and natural they look with the help of ray tracing.

New technology always comes at a premium, and it will be interesting to see how Nvidia scales this down to smaller cards and laptops in a year or so.

But if you want more performance, then manual overclocking is also available and there's much you can gain by tuning the cards yourself.




While NVIDIA's newly announced GeForce RTX series graphics cards are set to hit the markets next month, only a handful of game titles will be able to make full use of the company's technology. And gamers will be able to play new and upcoming games at 4K resolution with HDR enabled at over 60 frames per second.

The Founder's Edition cards will cost a little more than this, but these basic prices are a pretty decent starting point for a hugely powerful card that will clearly last you years.

In other words, the GPU's shroud allows more air in, even if it's jammed up against another card or the side of the PC case.

Below you will find a video showing the Infiltrator tech demo running on a GTX1080Ti (do note that SLI is not working in this video so only the one GPU was being used, and that the tech demo NVIDIA showcased was running at higher settings than those featured below).

The new GeForce RTX 2080 and GeForce RTX 2080 Ti are rated for 10.5 Tflops and 14 Tflops respectively.

"Turing is NVIDIA's most important innovation in computer graphics in more than a decade", said Justin Walker, director of GeForce desktop at NVIDIA, in the release.
