MSI spoils Nvidia's big reveal of the GTX 2080

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's GeForce RTX cards are officially out of the ray-traced bag, and every card maker seems eager to join in.

Following the flagship card is the GeForce RTX 2080, which comes with 2,944 CUDA cores and 8GB of GDDR6 with a 14Gbps memory speed and 448GB/s bandwidth.

At $599, the Founders Edition of the GeForce RTX 2070 is a little more affordable, though Nvidia hasn't said when it'll release the card. 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.

However, Nvidia's ray-tracing tech is designed for newer games, so not all will have it. Do note that these pricings are meant for NVIDIA's own Founders Edition cards and naturally, pricing for custom cards from manufacturers will be different from one model to another.

Man City midfielder De Bruyne out for 3 months with injury
It is not the first time De Bruyne has had knee trouble having missed nine weeks of the 2015-16 campaign - his first at City - with ligament damage.

The new lineup of video cards includes the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, 2080, and 2070. But those graphics cards cost thousands of pound and are way out of the reach of the average PC enthusiast. And in real-time no less.

This is a light rendering technique that basically gives developers the ability to calculate shadows and reflections right down to a single beam of light in order to create hyper-realistic graphics such as the ones we saw in the jaw-dropping Star Wars Unreal Engine ray tracing teaser released back at GDC in March. "Computer graphics will never be the same again", he said at the Gamescom conference in Germany. Unfortunately, and since NVIDIA has not provided any performance figures in current-gen games that do not use ray tracing, we don't know how much faster the RTX2080Ti will be compared to the GTX1080Ti.

A brief summary on ray tracing; in real world, we see because rays of light bounce off of objects. Nvidia showed how the new technology will look in upcoming games including Shadow of the Tomb Raider and Metro Exodus.

While both cards are mostly the same, there is a fair difference in price.
