Nvidia unveils GeForce RTX 2070 & 2080 GPUs at Gamescom 2018

Nvidia announces new raytracing-focused RTX 2080, 2080 Ti graphics cards

Nvidia reveals new RTX GPUs, priced from $600 to $1,200, and ready to pre-order now

But Nvidia's founder and boss Jensen Huang has touted the Turing architecture as the largest development in Nvidia's history noting it's the "greatest leap since we created CUDA" and as such has the power and architecture to handle real-time ray-tracing in graphics cards the average Joe or Jill can buy.

As for the Asus Dual GeForce RTX models, these also get better cooling with new wing-blade fans (which utilizes tech developed for the Strix cards).

Powering virtual reality apps easily and supporting over 8K UHD, the Acer Predator Orion 9000 series gaming desktops feature up to the latest NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti GPUs, and up to an Intel® Core™ i9 Extreme Edition processor with 18 cores and 36 threads. These cards will be succeeding Nvidia's current consumer flagship line, the GTX 10 series consisting of GTX 1070, GTX 1080 and GTX 1080 Ti.

Indonesian Ambassador Rusdi Kirana told reporters outside court he was shocked by the ruling but his government will abide by it. Malaysian officials have never officially accused North Korea and have made it clear they don't want the trial politicized.

Four cards are available to pre-order in the United Kingdom from eBuyer, Overclockers and Scan, with the recommended price of the Asus Dual RTX 2080 Ti weighing in at around £1,340 (around $1,720, AU$2,335), and the Asus Turbo RTX 2080 Ti costing £1,275 (around $1,635, AU$2,220).

However, Metro Exodus is the game which is confirmed to use the Real Time Ray Tracing and will be taking full advantage of this new rendering technique from Nvidia.

Nvidia has finally announced its new RTX 20-series graphics cards, with the RTX 2080 Ti taking pride of place at the head of the new family. In short, ray tracing technology is capable of more realistic global illumination and accurate projections of ambient light, and affords the ability to efficiently calculate the reflections and light sources that exist outside of the screen space.

Retail inflation slows to 9-month low at 4.17%
Earlier this week official figures showed wages growth falling steadily over recent months, from 2.8% in February to 2.4% in June. By property type, semi-detached houses showed the biggest increase, rising by 4.4 per cent in the year to June 2018 to £216,000.

Such power comes at a hefty price, with the Founders Edition RTX 2080 Ti set to fetch $1,199 (around £940) when it makes its debut on 20 September. Gamers will be able to play the most recent and upcoming titles in 4K with HDR at frame rates exceeding 60fps, according to Huang. They are based on its recently launched chip blueprint called "Turing", which Nvidia is also using for higher-priced chips announced last week for game designers, movie makers and other computer graphics professionals. This is also when we expect reviews and further details to go live, but we haven't had this confirmed as of yet.

NVIDIA has launched Founders Edition versions of each of these three cards. We should mention that the NVIDIA Founders Editions of these cards will ship at $1,199, $799 and $599 respectively. These games will utilize the new DirectX Raytracing (DXR) API developed by Microsoft on Windows.
