  • PNY accidentally revealed its Ge Force RTX 2080 Ti XLR8 OC Edition GPU

Powered by the new NVIDIA Turing GPU architecture and the revolutionary NVIDIA RTX platform, the new graphics cards bring together real-time ray tracing, artificial intelligence, and programmable shading. The RTX 2070, which is available internationally for €569, would retail for $899 through the Nvidia website. 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.

And if you do this enough times and with enough speed, you could use this technique to draw an entire game with a completely new level of fidelity that wasn't really feasible before. An image of the prices from the Nvidia Australian site is reproduced below.

What makes the RTX cards special is Nvidia's new Turing architecture, which can render light and shadow effects, or what's called "ray tracing", more realistically than other graphics cards.

However, The Division 2 and Anthem are not the only games that might feature the Real-Time Ray Tracing as the upcoming Battlefield V and Shadow Of The Tomb Raider might also support Real-Time Ray Tracing.

While the buzz around these new cards is mostly about the ray tracing technology powering them, they're also a general step-up from the cards on the market right now. According to Huang, it would take 10 of Nvidia's previous-generation graphics card - the GTX 1080Ti - to keep up with Tensor. The RTX 2070 card comes with the same memory configuration at the RTX 2080, only sporting a handful fewer CUDA cores; 2,304 to be exact. 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.

Ray tracing allows the computer to work out how light would behave as it interacts with different surfaces and objects at all kinds of angles.

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. But those graphics cards cost thousands of pound and are way out of the reach of the average PC enthusiast.

The new GPU architecture has been created to support Nvidia's RTX suite of hardware and software algorithms to help generate ray tracing on the fly, hence the switch from the GTX nomenclature to the RTX prefix.

While the shadows in my play-time did look pretty good, in that brightly lit instance it's hard to see where they look that much better than the traditional way that shadows are faked in-game.
