COLORFUL Adds NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti & RTX 2080 - Graphics

Based on the Turing architecture that Nvidia has already used on its Quadro graphics cards for architects, engineers and creative pros, it may also be capable of handing ray tracing.

The new lineup of video cards includes the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, 2080, and 2070.

The first of the Turing architecture gaming GPUs to land will, in fact, be the GeForce RTX 2080, but it's coming with its more powerful sibling the RTX 2080 Ti at the same time.

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. I've seen custom RTX 2080 models from just about every graphics card vendor at Gamescom, most using existing cooler designs. Nvidia has also placed a limit of 2 cards per customer on the new series.

Although the visual impact of real-time ray tracing is truly enormous, the company needs quick adoption of its RTX platform and big speed-ups in today's games to justify upgrades. When the GTX 780, GTX 980 and the GTX 1080 were launched the Ti cards followed several months later. The chipmaker disclosed better-than-expected earnings of $1.76 per share on revenues of $3.12 billion - up 40% year-over-year - compared with Wall Street analysts' estimates of $1.66 earnings per share on revenues of $3.1 billion. The game is running at 1080p resolution with RTX effects switched on.

Replacing last year's Titan and GTX cards, three new RTX branded cards will be sold for $500 to $1,000 each.

ASUS has unveiled a number of 2080 and 2080 Ti cards for preorder. There is no estimated date for the launch of the GTX 2070.

New and enhanced technologies to improve performance of VR applications, including Variable Rate Shading, Multi-View Rendering and VRWorks Audio.

They went on to show games that are using this new RTX technology mainly, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Metro Exodus, and Battlefield V which we really recommend you watch the videos of the game with and without RTX. GTX is out, and RTX is in, and it indicates Nvidia has made a decision to put all its money on Ray Tracing as the flagship feature for this new generation of GPUs.

There is also an AMP version for the RTX 2080 GPU. 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.
