Nvidia's RTX 2080, RTX 2080 Ti Cards Arrive Sept. 20

But you may have noticed that Nvidia is using RTX rather than the GTX prefix.

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, GeForce RTX 2080, and GeForce RTX 2070 are all powered by the new Turing GPU architecture, bringing together "real-time ray tracing, artificial intelligence, and programmable shading", according to the announcement.

The new GeForce RTX 2080 and GeForce RTX 2080 Ti are rated for 10.5 Tflops and 14 Tflops respectively.

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. The RTX 2070 will only cost $599, however it's now not available for pre-order just yet. With ray-tracing, an in-game graphics engine can depict light that will accurately bounce and diffuse across a room in a more realistic fashion. That task was hard to do well in the past, Huang said in his presentation.

Huang described the generational lead from the very capable Pascal architecture to Turing as a "shocking contrast", which certainty cranks the hype machine for the new GeForce graphics. 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. The ray-tracing mainly created more shadows around characters and environments using different degrees of darkness, from pitch black to softer shades of gray. Other titles slated to support ray tracing include MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries and Atomic Heart, among others, with more to come, the company said.

Nvidia will sell its own factory-overclocked Founders Edition graphics cards for all three new GPUs priced $100 higher each, but the company has not yet confirmed whether these will be coming to India. These new GPUs will also feature the standard NVIDIA features such as Showplay, VR support, 4K output, DirectX 12 support, G-Sync, HDR and many more. However, the GPUs will cost you an extra $100 to $200 over the suggested starting price.
