Here's Every Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080, 2070 Card That We Know About

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

NVIDIA also highlights that these cards are powered by their latest Turing architecture, and will have a ray-tracing feature, for real-time light reflections and cinematic effects in your games.

The new 20-series GPUs are expected to deliver up to 6 times the performance of the previous-generation graphics cards. NVIDIA claims Turing is 6X faster at ray tracing applications than Pascal. When it comes to creating realistic-looking computerized versions of the real world, ray tracing is the holy grail. It maps the path of light from objects all the way to the camera view, as each photon bounces off surface after surface. To make the process a bit simpler, the light is sent backwards from the camera to the light source, as it reduces some of the computational load.

While the shadows in my play-time did look pretty good, in that brightly lit instance it's hard to see where they look that much better than the traditional way that shadows are faked in-game.

New and enhanced technologies to improve the performance of VR applications, including Variable Rate Shading, Multi-View Rendering, and VRWorks Audio.

As part of the event, Nvidia revealed some impressive technical demos of a bunch of games running on this new hardware.

All of this power is coming packed into the new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 20 series which includes three different cards at launch.

Nvidia has also opened pre-orders on the Founder's Editions of the 2080s. MSI's Gaming Trio and Duke series feature dual-slot triple fan cooling solutions and overclocked GPUs. Specifically, they are the: RTX 2070, RTX 2080, and RTX 2080 Ti. The Founders Editions will be priced at $599, $799 and $1,199, respectively.

The most powerful of the two cards arriving next month, the RTX 2080 Ti, will start at $999.

However, Nvidia's ray-tracing tech is designed for newer games, so not all will have it.

Besides those, we witnessed games like Battlefield V that used RTX-based reflections, while Metro Exodus was used as an example for RTX-based lighting, and Shadow of the Tomb Raider showcased the use of RTX-based shadows.

New NGX neural graphics framework integrates AI into the overall graphics pipeline, enabling AI algorithms to perform fantastic image enhancement and generation.

Nvida even says to more accurately judge the performance of new RTX cards, it had to create a new unit of measure called RTX OPS, which includes a combination of standard shader performance, floating point integer performance, ray tracing performance and AI performance.
