  • NVIDIA Ge Force RTX 2080 TI Graphics Card

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.

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. The RTX 2080 is priced at $800, while the RTX 2080 Ti is set at $1,200. This applies across the three GeForce RTX 20 series cards that were announced today, including the RTX 2080 Ti, RTX 2080 and the RTX 2070. Nvidia's G-Sync feature means titles running under the card will have tear-free gameplay, refresh rates of up to 240 Hz, HDR, and 4K.

Previously, ray tracing - which is often referred to as the "holy grail" of graphics - was so computationally intense that most games relied on less accurate statistical light models to create the shadows and reflections see in a graphics. The company said that this delivers six times the performance of previous-generation graphics cards and brings the power of real-time ray tracing and AI to games. HP is also hitting the ground running with its new OMEN Obelisk, a powerhouse rig that combines the new NVIDIA cards with speedy memory from HyperX.

Using ray tracing, game makers can now properly calculate light as it bounces off various surfaces. Keep in mind that the new RTX GPUs start at $799, and go up to $1,199 for the RTX 2080 Ti, so the pricing of the Alienware machines will vary depending on which GPU you choose.

In terms of raw specs, it depends on which version that customers choose to purchase as the GeForce RTX Founders Edition cards apparently offers higher boost clock.

NVIDIA calls it the "magic of ray tracing" and they're's day and night.

We know they're going to be based on the same Nvidia Turing architecture the company announced at SIGGRAPH on August 14.

To show off what you can do with the card, NVIDIA showed off a few games including Battlefield V and Shadow of the Tomb Raider. The tech creates cinematic renderings for video games. We're talking about the ability to calculate reflections within refractions within even more reflections.

Nvidia Corp (NVDA.O) on Monday released a new generation of gaming chips that combine its latest "ray tracing" technology and artificial intelligence to give gamers access to more realistic graphics.
