Nvidia debuts GeForce RTX gaming cards starting at $499

PNY accidentally revealed its Ge Force RTX 2080 Ti XLR8 OC Edition GPU

With the FPS counter on in GFE we could see the game batting between 33fps and 48fps as standard throughout our playthrough and that highlights just how intensive real-time ray tracing can be on the new GeForce hardware.

Alienware is wasting no time with Nvidia's hot new RTX GPUs. But let's not get distracted.

MSI announced five series of GeForce RTX cards, which means there should be a model that suits everyone's needs. Nvidia announced that the PC versions of Battlefield V, Shadow of the Tomb Raider and Metro Exodus will all support it, with plenty more games likely to be added. NVIDIA first debuted this architecture in the workstation grade Quadro RTX 8000, 6000 and 5000 GPU and it is now being brought to consumer grade graphics cards. Meanwhile, the RTX 2080, will go for $699. For comparison's sake, the 1080 Ti - the top card on the market right now and one of the top picks on the VG247 Gear List - can only manage 1.21 Giga Rays per second.

Using ray tracing, game makers can now properly calculate light as it bounces off various surfaces.

Twitch Prime Dropping Ad-Free Viewing, Game Discounts
As Twitch announced on its blog, Twitch Prime members with monthly subscriptions will get ad-free viewing until October 15th. And if you bought an annual subscription, you'll continue to be able to watch without ads until your next renewal date.

According to Nvidia, there are over 20 RTX titles set for release, starting this holiday season, and more than 40 game developers are working on future titles that will integrate RTX.

New and enhanced technologies to improve the performance of VR applications, including Variable Rate Shading, Multi-View Rendering, and VRWorks Audio.

Leaks suggest we'll see the new RTX 2080 Ti and RTX 2080.

The 2080 offers ray tracing at 8 GigaRays per second, while the 2080 Ti offers ray tracing at 10 GigaRays per second, along with 78 trillion RTX ops.

Trump Call For SEC To Study Reporting Rules Sparks Debate
American firms should no longer have to report on a quarterly basis, United States president Donald Trump has said . Switching to a six-monthly reporting system would "allow greater flexibility and save money", Mr Trump said.

The company is also offering Founders Editions for all three graphics cards. Nvidia claims that each card can deliver up to six times better performance than previous comparable previous generation cards. The RTX listings for the cards have since been taken down. 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. "Computer graphics will never be the same again", he said at the Gamescom conference in Germany. Both the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and the GeForce RTX 2080 will ship on or around September 20th, with a limit of two per customer. Besides the real-time Ray Tracing technology, the new RTX GPUs also incorporate the use of shaders and Artificial Intelligence. We'll revisit all of that in the coming days.

This staggered schedule isn't really something new but should give you an idea of how long to wait for. Preorder options are available from Nvidia's website... if you can afford it.

In other words, the GPU's shroud allows more air in, even if it's jammed up against another card or the side of the PC case.
