Nvidia Announces GeForce RTX 20 Series Coming This September

At a Gamescom 2018 press conference in Cologne, Germany, Nvidia rolled out its newest generation of gaming chips - the RTX 2070, RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti. Games like Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Metro: Exodus, and Battlefield V showcased how this tech is implemented by comparing a scene with RTX turned on and off.

The new GeForce RTX 20 series graphics cards are using their next-gen Turing GPU architecture, something the company has been working on for the last 10 years. The company said that this delivers six times the performance of previous-generation graphics cards and brings the power of real-time ray tracing and AI to games.

After an epic week of leaks, NVIDIA's GeForce RTX family has finally been unveiled. It can compute 45 trillion simultaneous RTX operations. Rumors from VideoCardz and AdoredTV suggest the former (possibly priced at $300 to $500) will be 40% faster than the 1070, carrying a total of 2304 CUDA cores and 8GB of GDDR6 memory. Next is the RTX 2080 which has 8 Giga Rays per second, 60 trillion RTX-OPS, and 8 GB frame buffer. The GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and GeForce RTX 2080 are expected to start shipping around September 20, 2018. It will roll out with a 215W TDP. The RTX 2070 will only cost $599, however it's now not available for pre-order just yet. This includes the GeForce RTX 2070 priced at $599 (USD), GeForce RTX 2080 for $799 and the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti for $1,199. Zotac has not officially confirmed these prices.

Of course, for users the main question is when the cards themselves will be available. The higher end Strix and Dual series will be factory overclocked and will use extra-thick 3-slot coolers to increase heat dissipation allowing the fans to spin slower.

Nvidia has also opened pre-orders on the Founder's Editions of the 2080s. Huang promised that the cards will run whisper-quiet even when fully stressed and overclocked. These cards also feature USB Type-C connectors on the rear in support of the upcoming VirtualLink standard to deliver power as well as graphics to VR headsets with a single cable.
