N vidia recently revealed its latest generation of gaming chips – the RTX 2070, RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti, at an event in Germany. Powered by its next-gen Turing GPU (which Nvidia is also using for the recently announced higher-priced chips), these gaming chips are claimed to deliver AI-enhanced gaming and real-time ray-tracing effects.
“We’re using artificial intelligence to generate resolution that we otherwise wouldn’t have,” Chief Executive Jensen Huang said at the event.
“We can now for the very first time generate missing pixels that are actually right,” Reuters quoted Huang as saying.
They are also claimed to deliver up to 6X faster ray-tracing performance than previous-generation Pascal-architecture cards.
As the company puts it, the new GeForce RTX graphics cards feature super-fast GDDR6 memory, a new DisplayPort 1.4 output that can drive up to 8K HDR at 60Hz on future-generation monitors with just a single cable, and a VirtualLink USB Type-C output for next-gen Virtual Reality headsets.
Factory Overclocked: To ensure customers get the most from their graphics cards for their full lifetime, GeForce RTX Founders Edition graphics cards feature a 90MHz factory overclock. Each card is tested at the factory to ensure OC stability and is backed by a 3-year standard warranty. You can also try your own additional overclocking to push speeds further.
Dual Fans: Powered by 3-Phase motors, which limit vibrational noise, the dual fans feature 13-blades to move air more effectively, increasing the amount of air moved per second. And by utilizing two fans, cooling efficiency could be increased while simultaneously decreasing noise.
Pricing & Availability
Ranging from $499 to $999, the chips will be available in retail stores starting September 20. Head to Nvidia’s web store to pre-order now.
