Nvidia's Beefy New Graphics Card Will Cost £1099

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

The core foundation of the GeForce RTX 20 series is the new NVIDIA RTX platform which is a new hybrid rendering engine that allows for impressive results. This includes the GeForce RTX 2070 priced at $599 (USD), GeForce RTX 2080 for $799 and the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti for $1,199. At least one source suggests that the RTX 2080 could start at $600, which is the same price that the GTX 1080 launched at back in 2016.

So those are the cards, which usher in what looks to be quite a hike in performance over the 10-series GeForce cards.

Nvidia has also recruited publishers of some of the biggest upcoming games of 2018, as evidenced by a few tweets using the company's #BeForTheGame hashtag.

Delivering this technology has been no easy feat; the ray-tracing capability in the Turing architecture was originally expected to take another 10 years to achieve. Well, if Nvidia's Gamescom 2018 presentation is to be believed, they can handle the slick rendering technique pretty well.

Beyond that we don't know a huge amount about the new cards, and details are probably still going to be a little thin even after the pre-Gamescom event.

Normally, ray-tracing would take a serious amount of graphical power to run; we're talking Nvidia DXG supercomputer level. The company's new Turing architecture, however, can automatically simulate the light rays in real time. 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. Those of you who want to see what Turing's capable of will want to be on the lookout for those. But if they do deliver the performance Nvidia is promising, and Huang tends to now exaggerate too much, then we could be looking at a serious generational jump in the world of graphics.
