Nvidia launches GeForce RTX 2000 Series With 6x Performance Boost

24 August 2018

Pre-orders are now active for the Nvidia RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti cards, both of which are slated to ship "on or around" 20 September 2018. The RTX 2080 Ti is the flagship, clocked at 1350MHz with 4352 CUDA cores and 11GB of GDDR6 RAM (full specs here), while the regular RTX 2080 will be clocked at 1515MHz with 2944 CUDA cores and 8GB of GDDR6 RAM (full specs here).

The Turing GPU architecture aboard each GeForce RTX card is said to bring "up to 6X faster performance" in your favorite games, with "real-time ray tracing" and "powerful AI enhanced graphics".

You can pre-order "Founder Editions" of the all three graphics cards right now via the NVIDIA website.

The GeForce RTX 2070 Founders Edition will be priced at $599, with the RTX 2080 Founders Edition at $799, and the RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition at $1,199. While the RTX 2080 and 2080Ti will ship around September 27, the company has not announced when the RTX 2070 will start shipping.

Huawei and ZTE banned from providing equipment to build Australia's 5G network
The whole Huawei-is-a-security-concern issue is convoluted and divisive. This is a extremely disappointing result for consumers. We've approached Huawei Australia for further comment.

The firm's new GeForce RTX series of graphics processing units (GPU) are capable of six times the performance of their predecessor and support cutting-edge ray-tracing technology. At the moment the GeForce RTX 2070 isn't available yet and we don't know when it will be released as no date has been mentioned by NVIDIA.

The presentation was punctuated with a host of detailed explanations about different lighting techniques, real-time ray tracing, and other rendering techniques. A GTX 1080 Ti, Huang noted, could only run the Infiltrator demo at approximately 30 FPS. The chipmaker disclosed better-than-expected earnings of $1.76 per share on revenues of $3.12 billion - up 40% year-over-year - compared with Wall Street analysts' estimates of $1.66 earnings per share on revenues of $3.1 billion. (For an example, see the plane in the picture above from the Battlefield V game.) Generating lifelike reflections, refractions, and other effects requires considerable computing power, which has held ray tracing back in consumer gaming. Nvidia is promising real-time ray tracing in games such as Shadow Of The Tomb Raider. But the special features "provide the ability for Nvidia to claim leadership in technology, thus the new brand and new prices". Instead, they will feature the new Type-C VirtualLink connector and NVLink, a multi-lane near-range communication link developed by Nvidia. It was a lead-up to talk about the technologies powering the company's new series of GPUs, which were leaked by AIB partners and retailers beforehand.

Google Fit gets a redesign ahead of possible Pixel watch launch
People can also manually tell the app if they're doing activities that are more hard to detect, such as Pilates or gardening. Google's revamp simplifies its tracking program, which it first launched in 2014 as a competitor to Apple's HealthKit.
