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

NVIDIA has officially announced its next-gen GeForce RTX 2080 and GeForce RTX 2080 Ti graphics cards, here in Cologne, Germany at their huge GeForce Gaming Celebration event. The family is fleshed out with the GeForce RTX 2080 (2944 CUDA cores) and the GeForce RTX 2070 (2304 CUDA cores). Boost clock speeds are where we find the first difference between the two, as the Founders Edition is capable of reaching 1.635 GHz while the standard 2080 Ti maxes out at 1.545 GHz.

Previously, ray tracing - which is often referred to as the "holy grail" of graphics - was so computationally intense that most games relied on less accurate statistical light models to create the shadows and reflections see in a graphics. We'll add details for more cards as we get them. The flagship card will have 11 GB of memory with 4352 CUDA cores, a 20% jump from the previous generation. The Zotac Gaming GeForce RTX 2080 Amp will set buyers back $840 at Newegg, while the big-momma GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Amp rings in at $1200.

Pre-orders are live for both the RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti at retailers like Nvidia's website and Amazon.

Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang told Monday's Gamescom crowd that the Turing chip shipping in the consumer-grade RTX cards ships with 18.9 billion transistors, and that it includes three discrete processors: the Turing SM, the RT Core, and the Tensor Core.

Turing is NVIDIA's brand new, eight-generation architecture that succeeds Pascal. The end result is computer generated images and graphics look fabulously realistic and as shiny as the polished bonce of Chris Merriman. Along with the usual speed and enhanced graphics that entails, this also means GeForce RTX supports real-time ray tracing in supported games - including Battlefield 5, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and Metro Exodus. Unfortunately, and since NVIDIA has not provided any performance figures in current-gen games that do not use ray tracing, we don't know how much faster the RTX2080Ti will be compared to the GTX1080Ti. Finally, the RTX 2070 hits 6 Giga Rays per second, 45T RTX-OPS, and a 8GB frame buffer, and it will hit shelves for $499 excluding tax.
