Nvidia, announced today (8/20), during a pre-Gamescom 2018 livestream, three new high-end graphics cards.  These new 20-series cards will now succeed Nvidia’s current ‘top-of-the-line’ GPUs. While most fans of the company know that they usually wait to launch the more powerful Ti version of a GPU later on, this time around, it’s releasing the RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti at once.

However, these three new GPU’s will be on the more expensive side of things. “The Nvidia-manufactured Founders Edition versions will cost $599 for the RTX 2070, $799 for the RTX 2080 and $1,199 for the RTX 2080 Ti.” The latter two cards are expected to ship “on or around” Sept. 20th, while there is no estimated release date for the RTX 2070. So, if you already can’t think of a reason not to have the RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti, pre-orders are currently available.

You can see the base specifications for the three graphics cards below:

Nvidia RTX 2070

Spec RTX 2070 FE RTX 2070 GTX 1070
GPU architecture Turing Turing Pascal
Boost clock 1710 MHz (OC) 1620 MHz 1683 MHz
Frame buffer 8 GB GDDR6 8 GB GDDR6 8 GB GDDR5
Memory speed 14 Gbps 14 Gbps 8 Gbps

During the keynote, Nvidia featured a number of demonstrations to illustrate the potential of Nvidia RTX. The company produced a tech demo, “Project Sol,” consisting of a cinematic scene rendered with real-time ray tracing on a Quadro RTX 6000. It might take some time to build up but it seems like a video that Tony Start would be proud of. Check it out below.
