MSI spoils Nvidia's big reveal of the RTX 2080

Nvidia Announces RTX 2080, 2080 Ti, And 2070 With Price And Release Date

The Turing GPU architecture is the first generation of graphics card that offers real-time ray tracing performance, and evidently, the new technology has Nvidia's board partners excited.

That's the biggest difference between Nvidia's new RTX graphics cards, announced today, and the GTX line that came before it.

Update: NVIDIA has revealed India price of RTX 2080 Ti, RTX 2080 and RTX 2070 GPU at Rs 102,500, Rs 68,500 and Rs 51,200 respectively. "Once you see an RTX game, you can't go back".

Interestingly, the new stock card moves to a dual-fan design. The Orion 5000 is a gaming beast designed for the serious gamer, while the Orion 3000 is aimed at users entering the world of serious gaming, and the Orion 9000, with top-of-the-line NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti1 GPUs and up to 18-core CPUs is a gamer's dream machine aimed at the most demanding users.

As for those internals, HP has gone with the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080, along with Intel's 8th Gen Core i+ CPUs or AMD's 2nd Gen Ryzen CPUs.

And they looks to be ready to deliver the goods as a series of upcoming games, such as Battlefield V and Shadow of the Tomb Raider, were shown off making use of real-time ray-tracing, which not only makes the games' graphics look a whole lot more realistic but also picks out of a hell of a lot more detail than when no ray-tracing is applied. Besides the real-time Ray Tracing technology, the new RTX GPUs also incorporate the use of shaders and Artificial Intelligence.

NVIDIA has launched the long awaited next generation of graphics cards from the company, the GeForce RTX.

Pakistani lawmakers elect Imran Khan as new PM
It is expected to form a coalition government in powerful Punjab province, formerly a PML-N stronghold, in coming days. In a house of 342, the winning candidate was required to obtain at least 172 votes to become the Prime Minister.

New RT Cores to enable real-time ray tracing of objects and environments with physically accurate shadows, reflections, refractions and global illumination.

The company is also offering Founders Editions for all three graphics cards.

New NGX neural graphics framework integrates AI into the overall graphics pipeline, enabling AI algorithms to perform fantastic image enhancement and generation. A cheaper model, the RTX 2070, will be available for $499, but won't arrive until October.

Below you will find a video showing the Infiltrator tech demo running on a GTX1080Ti (do note that SLI is not working in this video so only the one GPU was being used, and that the tech demo NVIDIA showcased was running at higher settings than those featured below).

As for the Asus Turbo GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and 2080, these GPUs have been fine-tuned to improve the overall airflow going through the card, so they can run better in systems which have multiple GPUs (or cases in which airflow is poor or restricted, for that matter).

UK Pricing is now an unknown, but we'll report back on much more about these cards as we get it.
