NVIDIA Announce the GeForce RTX 20 Series Launching in September

24 August, 2018, 01:40 | Author: Lydia Fleming
  • Nvidia announces new raytracing-focused RTX 2080, 2080 Ti graphics cards

What's interesting is that the 2080 Ti edition will also be available from day one, with pricing listed below for all three GeForce RTX 20 cards.

But given everything else NVIDIA's Turing architecture can do, including real-time ray tracing and AI acceleration, you can expect the 2080 Ti to be capable of much more. Powered by the new NVIDIA Turing™ GPU architecture and the revolutionary NVIDIA RTX platform, the new graphics cards bring together real-time ray tracing, artificial intelligence, and programmable shading.

Pre-orders are already live on the Nvidia webpage, with a limit of two cards per buyer on the 2080 and 2080 Ti variants. The GeForce RTX 2080 Ti is available for $1,199, the GeForce RTX 2080 for $799, and the GeForce RTX 2070 for $599.

If you're disappointed by the high prices announced for Nvidia's RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti, cards like the Asus RTX 2080 Turbo should come in at the lower end of the announced price range. I've seen custom RTX 2080 models from just about every graphics card vendor at Gamescom, most using existing cooler designs. It is being touted as the next big thing in graphics rendering technology which should push realistic lighting and effects in games. Game developers are all set to adopt this technology this year.


Other leaks, also courtesy of VideoCardz, indicate that Nvidia will be ditching the SLI connector for the RTX series of graphics cards. Nvidia will be presenting Nvidia RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti there which can support this feature. In combination with an attainable price tag of $400 or right around it, the RTX 2070 will very likely be the go-to graphics card in the Turing line-up.

Not to be left out, PC maker Acer also jumped on the GeForce RTX bandwagon. Some of the features of these editions include out-of-the-box overclocking, dual 13-blade axial fans, the first full-card vapor chamber, enhanced DisplayPort 1.4a with DSC, and a machine-finished forged diecast aluminum cover.

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. But the special features "provide the ability for Nvidia to claim leadership in technology, thus the new brand and new prices".
