Soon the company NVIDIA officially announces the new generation of GeForce graphics cards based on the architecture of Turing. RTX-OPS is a new performance measurement by NVIDIA and takes an aggregate score of the Turing Shaders, CUDA Cores, Tensor Cores, and RT Cores needed to render RTX graphics.

The new and powerful NVIDIA GeForce RTX desktop video cards are built with enthusiasts and professionals in mind, delivering faster performance over previous generations. Here is the list of prices you should expect to see if you go ahead and pre-order a new graphics card today. According to that, the GeForce RTX 2070 is listed at $599 USA, the GeForce RTX 2080 costs $799 U.S. and the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti hits $1199 US.

Gigabyte has four cards spanning the RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti SKUs under the WindForce OC and Gaming OC families.

Although none had to do with perhaps the most exciting GeForce 20 series graphics cards of them all, the RTX 2070.

Videocardz has the scoop, the card line up features five new cards - the Ventus, the Aero, the massive Gaming X Trio, the Duke, and the Seahawk - subtle names every single one.

Ray Tracing has always been a Holy Grail in the video game industry, with many people wondering whether they would ever witness the technique implemented in actual game releases and not tech demos.

The RTX 2080 runs a little pricier at $699, while the top-of-the-line RTX 2080 Ti - which jumps up to 11GB of RAM - starts from $999. The game is running at 1080p resolution with RTX effects switched on. It's a fascinating new direction for NVIDIA that has apparently been 10 years in the making.

The GeForce RTX platform moreover overlays enhanced virtual reality (VR) possibilities to feel a new level of realism with incredible detailing.

Electronic Arts (EA) and Square Enix are among the developers confirmed as supporting the new processor units, while games such as Shadow Of The Tomb Raider and Battlefield V will also support the technology.

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.

According to Jensen Huang (Nvidia CEO), they have introduced a new computing model which will be a monster in terms of performance.
