Nvidia's RTX 2080, RTX 2080 Ti Cards Arrive Sept. 20

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

Nvidia rose almost 3% on Monday, clawing their way back after a red open, after CEO Jensen Huang took the stage in Cologne, Germany at the company's GeForce gaming convention to announce a new set of graphics cards. PC gaming has always been costly, but packing one of these into your build is likely only to be for those prepared to invest heavily in their machine. Meanwhile, the RTX 2080, will go for $699. A bridge link for the 2080 Ti or 2080 is $119 if you're lucky enough to be able to afford to of these bad boys.

The graphics card manufacturer has three separate lines of products for the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and RTX 2080: the Asus Turbo, Asus Dual and Asus ROG Strix.

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. All cards are tested by NVIDIA to ensure they run at the state clock speeds and are backed by a 3-year warranty.

This is a light rendering technique that basically gives developers the ability to calculate shadows and reflections right down to a single beam of light in order to create hyper-realistic graphics such as the ones we saw in the jaw-dropping Star Wars Unreal Engine ray tracing teaser released back at GDC in March.

Trump dismissed Manigault Newman in the ninth week of the debut season of his reality show, " The Apprentice ", in 2004. The Post also reported that Manigault Newman sent Ryan a note citing an unnamed story that tied her to Clinton.

But Nvidia's founder and boss Jensen Huang has touted the Turing architecture as the largest development in Nvidia's history noting it's the "greatest leap since we created CUDA" and as such has the power and architecture to handle real-time ray-tracing in graphics cards the average Joe or Jill can buy. Both the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and the GeForce RTX 2080 will ship on or around September 20th, with a limit of two per customer.

The non-Founders Edition versions of the cards, which aren't available through the Nvidia website, start from $US499 internationally.

On Monday, Huang showed off a series of demonstrations he said were running on the new RTX cards, but did not offer much in the way of industry standard benchmarks, or comparisons to older cards from his company or cards from competitors like Advanced Micro Devices. NVIDIA first debuted this architecture in the workstation grade Quadro RTX 8000, 6000 and 5000 GPU and it is now being brought to consumer grade graphics cards. We'll add details for more cards as we get them.

"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.
