New Nvidia gaming chips aim to boost realism of graphics

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

According to Nvidia itself, the GeForce RTX cards combine Turing GPU architecture with a brand-new RTX platform. NVIDIA has broken from its "GTX" naming scheme, with the "R" in RTX standing for "ray-tracing". Additionally, Nvidia has announced a new smoother DLSS (Deep Learning Supersampling) technique that leverages Nvidia's neural network expertise to analyse hundreds of thousands of images and learn how each pixel should be treated. Lastly, the RTX 2080 Ti boasts 10 Giga Rays per second, 78 RTX-OPS, and 11 GB frame buffer. Not only did Nvidia launch the Founders Edition GeForce RTX 2070, RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti; Nvidia's board partners came out of the gate with a slew of custom and overclocked variants. That new nomenclature is a nod to the ray-tracing capabilities of the new Turing architecture.

The RTX 2070 will include 8GB of vRAM and will have 45T of RTX-OPS, while the standard RTX 2080 moves up to 60T of RTX-OPS, with the top-end RTX 2080 featuring a massive 11GB of vRAM and 78T of RTX-OPS. Before you start designing your gaming rig, beware that the new cards are power hungry.

Huang invited game developers from EA, 4A Games and Eidos on stage to show exclusive demos of real-time lighting and shadow effects in the upcoming Battlefield V, Metro: Exodus, and Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Nvidia claims that each card can deliver up to six times better performance than previous comparable previous generation cards. Preorders for the cards begin today and will be on store shelves September 20, 2018. Furthermore, the entire power delivery system has been rebuilt for GeForce RTX Founders Edition graphics cards, starting with the all-new 13-phase iMON DrMOS power supply.

Ray tracing is the primary technology that's been used to create realistic rendering since the mid-1980s - and with RTX, Nvidia says it has significantly reduced the most time consuming aspect of rendering. This is also when we expect reviews and further details to go live, but we haven't had this confirmed as of yet.

A massive Newegg product listing revealed pre-order options for both new cards from the usual graphics cards suspects: Asus, EVGA, Gigabyte, MSI, PNY, and Zotac.
