Plethora of Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 (Ti) AIB designs leak

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

Nvidia reveals new RTX GPUs, priced from $600 to $1,200, and ready to pre-order now

Preorders for Nvidia's Founders Edition cards are now open, with shipments expected to go out from 20 September for the RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti. But those graphics cards cost thousands of pound and are way out of the reach of the average PC enthusiast.

That's only half the story, however: As well as the dedicated ray tracing cores, the Turing architecture includes hardware for accelerating deep-learning tasks.

Nvidia also announced a number of major games built on the RTX platform, including Battlefield V and Shadow of the Tomb Raider.

On MSNBC, Omarosa Says Trump ‘Wants to Start a Race War’
Even allegations about impropriety with her husband's handling of his charitable foundation left her largely unscathed. Trump on Monday denied the existence of any such tape, citing the show's former producer, Mark Burnett.

Update: NVIDIA has revealed India price of RTX 2080 Ti, RTX 2080 and RTX 2070 GPU at Rs 102,500, Rs 68,500 and Rs 51,200 respectively. MSI is really going all-out making sure that overclockers have enough power to play with: the RTX 2080 Gaming X Trio requires a pair of eight-pin power connectors, while the RTX 2080 Ti Gaming Trio requires two eight-pin connectors plus an additional six-pin connector.

We already knew Turing was able to handle ray-tracing thanks to the latest Quadro professional-grade graphics cards Nvidia showed off last week. Before you start designing your gaming rig, beware that the new cards are power hungry. Traditionally this would take a lot of horsepower and a lot of time to replicate, and it's the type of technique many animation companies like Pixar and Dreamworks use to render their CGI worlds.

Eidos Montréal's Shadow of the Tomb Raider is inevitably all about shadows, showing how much softer and natural they look with the help of ray tracing. And to enable the ray traced shadows you're obviously having to pay a huge performance penalty for the privilege.

England facing defeat in third India Test after shocking collapse
ALL OVER! James Anderson in on a hat-trick as he puts an end to the Indian innings with the wickets of Shami and Jasprit Bumrah. Rahul, in particular, was aggressive as he hit seven fours and scored at 100-plus strike rate during his 33-ball stay.

While you wait for the GeForce Gaming Celebration, Nvidia has shared some more Real-Time Ray Tracing demos to whet your appetite.

And on top of that, the film-grain effect was dialed up to stupid levels, and Nvidia techs gave you a good bollocking if you even looked like you were going to mess with the settings.

NVIDIA states that the GeForce RTX 2080 Founder Edition makes use of 225W of power out of the box and up to 280W when pushed to the maximum by overclockers.

Serena falls short against Kvitova in Cincinnati
You know, there is only so much you can do before you have to, you know, I guess, get surgery or something like that. I just started - definitely at the very, very beginning".

And everything has reflections. Auto bodywork, windows, puddles, even the metal accents on your soldier's weapon - all will use ray tracing to paint realistic, real-time reflections. You can find out more here. And running at a higher resolution, without the ray traced reflections, would likely be preferable too as you could actually see more detail at range for those precision shots from downtown. They will be available for purchase next month. 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.
