Nvidia's Latest GPUs Aim to Boost the Realism of Graphics

21 August 2018

The Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti is a beast - clocking in with 11GB of GDDR6 RAM and clocked at 14Gbps. You can also configure it with up to 18-core Intel processor.

That said, the price of admission into this new elite world of graphics is incredibly high.

If that's slightly baffling to you, it's because Nvidia has released the RTX 2080 alongside the RTX 2070 and an RTX 2080 Ti. For now, NVIDIA is limiting sales of the RTX 2080 Founder's Edition to two per customer, so if you have a multi-GPU rig larger than that in mind, you'll have to wait. 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. About the only description of the performance of the new cards that the company gave was that they are up to six times faster at conducting calculations than Nvidia's prior consumer line. Nvidia's new chips, which are based on a recently updated architecture known as Turing, speed things up by rendering part of an image using this existing approach, and then tapping artificial intelligence to predict and fill in the remaining light effects.

Bama, Clemson lead AP preseason Top 25 poll
Going for their second straight national championship, the Alabam Crimson Tide already have one three-peat in the bag. That year, the Canes ended the season with a 40-3 loss to none other than the LSU Tigers in the Peach Bowl.

Maybe you'll be able to watch that reflected light go out as bayonet them, such is the attention to detail that DICE has thrown at this seeming labour of graphical love. Game developers are all set to adopt this technology this year. Around the back, you can also spot a newly added USB-C video out port that has become prevalent among new monitors - and will likely become the de facto connector for future virtual reality headsets.

We've always had our comments about the blower style coolers from NVIDIA, they allowed a thermal threshold of 80 degrees, and all cards reached that in return throttling down. A dual-fan system, meanwhile, basically takes cool air and splashes it against an open heatsink to exhaust heat in every direction. We've done some early testing...

The Nvidia GeForce GTX 2080 is real - as we now know - except that it's actually called the RTX 2080 and is actually the mid-tier card in Nvidia's latest offering of RTX 2000 cards.

Deontay Wilder says Tyson Fury bout will 'definitely' happen this year
His team had been negotiating to fight WBA, WBO and IBF champion Anthony Joshua but talks fell through. WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder crashed Tyson Fury's weigh-in Friday in Northern Ireland.

So, how well does it handle the rigours of real-time ray tracing?

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. Shadow of the Tomb Raider showcased how moving point lights could dynamically produce softer shadows and mixing light colours bouncing and adapting to incidental objects. Thanks to Nvidia's RTX technology, shadows do indeed look more realistic - with different intensities everywhere depicted in a stony ruin in the rainforest.
