NVIDIA announces GeForce RTX graphics cards

We're still sitting here in the Nvidia press conference for Nvidia to actually announce its Turing-based GeForce graphics cards but it looks like the company went and spilled its own beans. It could also have the grunt to handle ray tracing, which the Turing architecture, which underpins Nvidia's next-gen GPUs, supports through the new Quadro professional-grade graphics cards.

VideoCardz claims to have been provided with specs of the new top-of-the-line GPU, noting it will come with 11GB of GDDR6 video memory and will sport 4,352 CUDA cores. As we've seen in the plethora of leaks over the past few days, NVIDIA's partners are primarily adopting a triple-fan setup for their custom GeForce RTX 2080 and GeForce RTX 2080 Ti graphics cards.

"Turing is NVIDIA's most important innovation in computer graphics in more than a decade", said Justin Walker, director of GeForce desktop at NVIDIA, in the release.

Head coach Ian Snook equally believes with good preparation, the Simbas can still grab the final 20th World Cup slot in Japan. Namibia went onto the offensive from the start on Saturday, forcing the visitors to concede an early penalty try.

Just below that is the GeForce RTX 2080 equipped with 8GB of video RAM to deliver 8 Giga Rays and 60 trillion RTX-OPS. Its base clock will be at 1515Mhz and its Founder's Edition can be turbo boosted at 1800Mhz. NVIDIA will have less CUDA cores on the RTX 2070 with it clocking in with 2304 CUDA cores, and a 185W TDP.

Ray tracing is the primary technology that's been used to create realistic rendering since the mid-1980s - and with RTX, Nvidia says it has significantly reduced the most time consuming aspect of rendering.
