HP announces the OMEN Obelisk with up an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080

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

The Alienware Aurora will be available with the new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070, 2080 and 2080 Ti GPUs which was announced just an hour back at Gamescom.

On this page we're going to run down all the basics for the Nvidia GeForce RTX series: the models, the specs, the price, the launch date and what to expect from them. The RTX 2080 Ti and RTX 2080 will be "seeded immediately" after tomorrow's NVIDIA's event, however.

Some of these had been revealed in a leak earlier this week, with website VideoCardz letting the cat out of the bag prior to the official announcement, feeding into the speculation frenzy that was already underway.

The Founders Edition version of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti rings up for an nearly obscene $1,199 (£1,099, AU$1,899).

The ASUS Dual GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and 2080 graphics cards feature patented Wing-blade fans.

Sergio AGUERO Manchester City hat trick, Facundo FERREYRA goal for Benfica
It is understood City bosses have not been approached by Spurs about the problem and have had no dialogue. Two wins from two at a canter for Guardiola's boys.

We don't know whether this is a limitation or whether the developers have simply chose to focus on different areas, however we were expecting more from the RTX 2080Ti. Newegg is listing the RTX 2080 Gaming X Trio for a reference-matching $800, and the RTX 2080 Ti Gaming X Trio for a similarly-standard $1200. Special editions with higher speeds and better cooling features will cost $100 to $200 extra. Comparatively, the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti sports 11GB of last-generation GDDR5X VRAM, 3,584 CUDA cores and a 1,582MHz maximum frequency. 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. You can find out more here.

The first batch of RTX GPUs, announced Monday, promise to bring "the biggest generational leap" in gaming graphics history, according to Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang.

That led us to speculate how well the next-gen GeForce cards will be able to render ray-tracing. For a lifetime PC gaming nerd that's super-exciting; as Jen-Hsun's said, it's always been the holy grail of PC graphics. It's also capable of kicking out the aforementioned 10 Giga rays per second and 78 trillion RTX operations per second.

You can check out all the video below, alongside a trailer dedicated to Battlefield V showing pretty much the same things but in a much more condensed way. Other titles slated to support ray tracing include MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries and Atomic Heart, among others, with more to come, the company said. It was announced during the 2018 Game Developers Conference in March. The RTX series also dedicates a significant level of support to advanced VR rendering, which is good news for anyone running a device on their PC.
