Watch the Nvidia GeForce RTX 20-Series Turing Reveal Live, GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Expected

Written by Jon Sutton on Mon, Aug 20, 2018 4:46 PM

The moment has arrived. 815 days since the first Pascal chips hit, Nvidia is finally revealing its next-generation GeForce graphics cards. Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 20-Series will use the new Turing graphics card architecture, ushering in Nvidia’s first 12nm GPUs. The GeForce RTX 20-Series will be the first-ever consumer graphics cards capable of real-time ray-tracing, or RTX. Long regarded as the holy grail of graphics card technology, RTX delivers lifelike physics-based lighting systems.

Today, we’re expecting the top-tier Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti to be revealed, alongside the high-end GeForce RTX 2080. Both are likely to launch imminently, while the high-to-mid range GeForce RTX 2070 and the GeForce GTX 2060 5GB could be a little further down the line.

Nvidia's 'BeForTheGame' Livestream kicks off at 5pm BST, which is around 20 minutes after this article. You can watch the Turing reveal in all its glory via the stream below.

You needed to know about the GIGARAYS and ray tracing and reflections about **** you dont notice in game and give nvidia every penny you own.

Jensen has slowly but surely gotten better at presenting over the years. Granted it was never that hard to sell his product so it doesnt really make much of a difference. But nevertheless, the guy is a better speaker today

$1899 AUD for the reference 2080 Ti yet alone an AIB card.... A bit steep if you ask me... Will hang onto what I have.

It would have to be 3 times better than the 1080ti to even justify that ****ing price point

1600 $ for an RTX 2080ti. Pfff. Fk you Nvidia. FK ray tracing and 4k graphics and other graphical gimmick. I don't need all these graphical nonsense. I don't need these boring, easy, graphically enhanced games. I need beautiful(good story) and challenging games(difficult, engaging gameplay). I miss the old days. A time when we had great games like Half Life 2, Gothic 2, The Witcher,

I remember seeing a gtx 970 for CAD250 bundled with ROTTR back in Jan 2016.


With amd unable to compete due to a) lack of high end cards and b) crypto mining inflating amd prices, there has been either ZERO or NEGATIVE price-to-performance improvement in GPUs (at least in Canada).

The only change is that more powerful cards now exist that didnt before. Other than that, the money you spent almost 3yrs ago will still buy you the same (or less!) amount of performance today (or even a few months from now when these cards become available).

AMD didn't Compete bcs of lack of money and if they do they just lost more money bcs most of peaple buy NVIDIA cards (doesn't matter who is faster.most do this

Not a direct response to you -- but now I get why I initially got downvoted, haha! If anyone thought I was bashing amd, pls calm down. If anything I was calling out nvidia (and consumers) when there are claims of generational improvements, when there is NIL, at least when it comes to price-to-performance.

Its ridiculous how pascal is hailed as a big jump in price to performance when maxwell was either as good or much much better depending on prices where you live. Of course while nvidia can partly be blamed (selling overpriced FE cards), pascal pricing was understandably hampered by crypto mining.

Just need to get real benchmarks, and decide whether to buy a second discounted 1080 ti or not.

With that pricing, the 2060 is likely going to be in the $400 range if it's an RTX card....which is kindof crazy...... though I think I seen somewhere that it wont even contain the raytracing hardware of the higher tier cards, and will be a standard GTX variant, so possibly cheaper, but without the features that make this line interesting...... something tells me this gen is going to be completely skippable for anyone with a mid-range budget.

It's starting to look that way Zenmaster..... this generation seems to be aimed more at people with infinite amounts of cash to spend more than even any prior generation.

I'd assume you'd either get a cleaner image (raytracing is literally spraying rays of light everywhere) at fixed framerates or higher framerates altogether with reflections on on higher-tier cards.
I'm interested in how it's gonna work with 2080Ti in NVlink mode...

complete garbage prices i quess you pay more for those reflections, no talk about actual performance...but look at those reflections though!...said no one. Wait for review before buying the cards we know close to nothing in terms of performance.

"RTX 2070 will offer more performance than Nvidia’s Titan XP card."

If that is true this thing will sell like crazy.

Horribly misleading wording. With ray tracing enabled on the few games that will actually have it sure, but they're making it out like actual performance in existing games is going to be unbelievable for it's price bracket.

Haha right... 1200usd msrp for the 2080ti and god knows how much in real stores and 3rd party versions. I sincerely hope that no-one buys them. This is beyond absurd and nvidias greed has gone way over the top. Probably buying a used 1080ti cheap and then going team red. Team green? More like team greed. F*ck those guys

He was talking about the founder's edition. Those are usually priced highest. Maybe he didnt know about Founders Edition pricing.
