Now at the Nvidia keynote in Cologne, Germany, the technology company revealed its latest set of customer GPU versions, the Nvidia GeForce RTX 20 series.
There are three variations of this GeForce RTX. The first is that the RTX 2070 that produces 6 Giga Rays per minute, 45 trillion RTX-OPS, and 8 GB frame buffer. Finally, the RTX 2080 Ti boasts 10 Giga Rays per minute, 78 RTX-OPS, and 11 GB frame buffer.
The RTX 2070 will likely cost $499, the RTX 2080 will charge $699, and the RTX 2080 Ti will charge $999. Preorders for your cards begin now and will be on store shelves September 20, 2018.
At the keynote, the majority of the dialogue was centered around beam tracing technologies. This technology allows the GPU to better simulate reflections and shadows making a more photo-realistic picture on-screen. Games such as Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Metro: Exodus, and Battlefield V showcased how this technology is executed by comparing some spectacle with RTX turned on and off.
Only last week in a Nvidia event at Siggraph 2018, the “planet ’s ray tracing GPU” was shown with all the Quadro RTX family of cards with the lowest being $2,300 and the priciest in $10,000.
