Nvidia's RTX 2080, RTX 2080 Ti Cards Arrive Sept. 20

Availability for the new GeForce RTX graphic cards begins September 20, with the 2080 Ti and GeForce RTX 2080, but you can already pre-order them today.

Nvidia's new RTX GPU's are using their new Turing architecture and Ray Tracing technology which is essentially a rendering and lighting technique created to enhance games and give them a much more photorealistic look. Powered by Nvidia's all-new Turing architecture and featuring real-time ray tracing capabilities, Zotac's new gaming cards have been tailored to suit the various needs of serious gamers.

We'll undoubtedly get more information about Nvidia's developer relations efforts in the days leading up to retail availability of GeForce RTX cards. Three new cards; RTX 2070, 2080 and the 2080 Ti cards. The latest generation of NVIDIA GeForce RTX desktop video cards are the world's first ray tracing gaming graphics cards.

The non-Ti GeForce RTX 2080, meanwhile, will come loaded with 8GB. It is priced at $499 whereas the Founders Edition of this card will be available for $599; however, its availability is still unknown. It is being touted as the next big thing in graphics rendering technology which should push realistic lighting and effects in games.

Eden Hazard: 'I will not be leaving Chelsea this month'
The Croatian made his Chelsea debut against Arsenal on Saturday, coming off the bench in a 3-2 win. Hazard is likely to make his first start of the new season in Chelsea's next game.

This Graphics card has its all-new turing architecture which eventually defeats its popular predecessor GTX 1080.

This is the same technology Nvidia stuffed into the $3,000 Titan V, so it's surprising to see it work its way into a consumer GPU - along with a premium cost. Meanwhile, the RTX 2080, will go for $699. There was no word about an RTX 2060 or lesser, so we'll have to wait and see on those models. Like ZOTAC, the company has included a blower cooled GPU and there's even a ROG Strix 2080 for good measure. Besides the real-time Ray Tracing technology, the new RTX GPUs also incorporate the use of shaders and Artificial Intelligence.

Equipped with a brand new premium design and triple fans, the GAMING TRIO and DUKE series will deliver the best-in-class thermal performance you have come to expect from MSI. With those numbers dropping to 6 GigaRays/sec and 45T RTX-OPS for the RTX 2070. All the new GPUs will feature at least 8GB GDDR6 memory on a 256-bit bus, and will have 185W TDP rating.

Starting with the real-time ray tracing feature, also known as RTX, is a technique in which when the light intersects with objects on the computer screen, it models real-time reflections.
