Nvidia jumps after announcing its next generation of GeForce graphics cards (NVDA)

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

Watch Nvidia unveil its newest GeForce graphics cards live right here

The RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti will launch for September 2018, while the RTX 2070 has no release date just yet. Games like Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Metro: Exodus, and Battlefield V showcased how this tech is implemented by comparing a scene with RTX turned on and off.

NVIDIA HAS FINALLY taken the covers off its next-gen Turing GeForce graphics cards, which come promising the power to deliver ray-tracing rendering without costing the price of a small moon.

With this comprehensive lineup for next generation graphics cards, we are confident that there will be a suitable model for every gamer looking for the next level of performance. "Computer graphics will never be the same again", he said at the Gamescom conference in Germany. For that, you're going to get the Turing GPU with 4352 CUDA cores, and 11GB of GDDR6 on a 352-bit memory bus. In terms of ray tracing power, they can push out 8 and 10 Gigarays per second respectively, or 60 trillion and 78 trillion RTX operations per second. This announcement happened during the companies #BeForTheGame presentation at Gamescom 2018 where CEO Jensen Huang took to the stage to detail and reveal the new GPU and architecture that is powering the GeForce RTX 20 series. It's been expected for some time that the company will be unveiling the new set of RTX 2080 video cards, and a new leak offering detailed specs all but confirms the upcoming reveal. The higher end Strix and Dual series will be factory overclocked and will use extra-thick 3-slot coolers to increase heat dissipation allowing the fans to spin slower. You can also pre-order the special "Founders Edition" of each card on Nvidia's site. These cards also feature USB Type-C connectors on the rear in support of the upcoming VirtualLink standard to deliver power as well as graphics to VR headsets with a single cable.
