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

Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti leak confirms GDDR6 and 4,352 CUDA cores

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080/2080 Ti Images And Details Leak Across The Weekend

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.

Leaks suggest we'll see the new RTX 2080 Ti and RTX 2080.

The RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti are up for pre-order right now, with deliveries set to commence from September 20. Nvidia's RTX technology adds new ray-tracing cores for high-quality, real-time rendering with global illumination, and the Tensor cores will speed up creating image detail quickly where there's none.

NVIDIA's second RTX graphics card is the GeForce RTX 2080 that is knocked down to 2944 CUDA cores, 8GB of GDDR6 but a lower price of $799. Its base clock will be at 1515Mhz and its Founder's Edition can be turbo boosted at 1800Mhz. The cards are now live on Nvidia's website, and hoo boy, they aren't cheap. It's exactly one month until we find out first-hand.

Nvidia promises "6X the performance of previous-generation graphics cards" and many other technical bells and whistles, although I'm not sure how many games these days are even maxing out the capabilities of the company's current most powerful card, the 1080 Ti.

With Turing, we can expect serious desktop graphics power as well as some extra grunt for laptop GPUs and likely a refreshed take on Nvidia's Max-Q designs that can extract more power and energy-efficiency out of slim and light laptops.
