NVIDIA Officially Announces GeForce RTX 2070, 2080 and 2080 Ti

At its own even at Gamescom 2018, NVIDIA officially announced the GeForce RTX 2070, GeForce RTX 2080, and GeForce RTX 2080 Ti graphics cards. We’ve already seen multiple leaks over the past week, but everything is now official. These three products are based on the new NVIDIA Turing architecture and the NVIDIA RTX platform, which fuses next-generation shaders with real-time ray tracing and all-new AI capabilities.

NVIDIA says that these new cards represent the biggest generational leap ever in gaming GPUs. Turing — which delivers 6x more performance than its predecessor, Pascal — redefines the PC as the ultimate gaming platform, with new features and technologies that deliver 4K HDR gaming at 60 frames per second on even the most advanced titles.

“Turing opens up a new golden age of gaming, with realism only possible with ray tracing, which most people thought was still a decade away,” said Jensen Huang, founder and CEO of NVIDIA, speaking before Gamescom, the world’s largest gaming expo. “The breakthrough is a hybrid rendering model that boosts today’s computer graphics with the addition of lightning-fast ray-tracing acceleration and AI. RTX is going to define a new look for computer graphics. Once you see an RTX game, you can’t go back.”

GeForce RTX 2080 Ti
The flagship of the GeForce RTX series will be the RTX 2080 Ti, which is based off the GU102 silicon. It will feature 4352 CUDA cores, 11 GB of GDDR6 memory running at 14 Gbps across a 352-bit memory interface. The card will have a base clock of 1350 MHz and will boost up to 1545 MHz. It will be priced at $1199 and will ship on September 20th.
