NVIDIA Ge Force RTX 2080 TI Graphics Card

NVIDIA Ge Force RTX 2080 TI Graphics Card

The pro-level Turing cards have been built for the rigours of ray tracing, and by sporting the same RTX moniker it's looking like the new GeForce gaming cards are going to be heavily focused on the same ray traced goal. Ray tracing isa new technique that Nvidia has now made possible in commercial-grade equipment, and while allows your graphics card to accurately model the behavior of light in real time.

However, that's a big claim, and things are sure to differ on a per game basis, especially as many titles will require extra work from devs to support many of Nvidia's new RTX features.

Nvidia's GeForce RTX cards are officially out of the ray-traced bag, and every card maker seems eager to join in.

Three GPUs were revealed, all in the new RTX 20 series.

According to one of Wccftech's sources, shipments of the RTX 2070 and 2060 will not begin until the end of October/early November, at the earliest. RTX is going to define a new look for computer graphics. With 4,352 CUDA cores and 11GB of GDDR6 video memory with a speed of 14Gbps and bandwidth of 616 GB/s, the new graphics card has some serious pixel-pushing power. It also has a 185W TDP rating. The RTX 2070 is priced at $600, but it isn't yet available to pre-order and Nvidia hasn't yet set a launch date. The RTX 2080 delivers 8 Giga Rays and 60 trillion RTX OPS, compared to 12 trillion RTX-OPS for the current Titan X card.

Richard Sherman Attacks NFL's Helmet Rule
A day later, veteran cornerback Richard Sherman posted a series of tweets regarding the rule and he didn't hold back at all. Another week of preseason football, another week of head-scratching flags being thrown.

If that's a bit rich for you - and you'll likely need a 4K, 120hz monitor to make the most of it in many games - there's also the GTX 2080 which features 8GB of GDDR6 RAM and other slightly reduced specs and thh GTX 2070 - a weaker still card but still one that outstrips nearly everything on the market right now.

To deliver record-breaking performance, the factory-overclocked GeForce RTX 2080 uses 225 Watts of power out of the box and tops out around 280 Watts for enthusiasts chasing ultimate overclocking performance.

Check out the availability and rather. messy local pricing situation over on PCPowerPlay.

We wrote about Ray Tracing (alongside some other new high-end Nvidia technology) back at GDC 2018. Huang promised that the cards will run whisper-quiet even when fully stressed and overclocked.

Both cards will come with a trio of DisplayPort 1.4 connectors, a single HDMI 2.0b jack, and a USB Type-C connector with VirtualLink support.
