You might also notice that the card is fully enveloped by a attractive shroud, and even the NVLINK connector is protected by a matching removable cover, giving GeForce RTX GPUs a clean appearance.

The graphics card manufacturer has three separate lines of products for the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and RTX 2080: the Asus Turbo, Asus Dual and Asus ROG Strix. The RTX 2080 drops performance to 8 Giga Rays per second, 60T RTX-OPS, and a 8GB frame buffer, and it will start at $699 excluding tax. But with Turing, Nvidia is promising ray tracing in real-time, so there's no wait.

The Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti is a beast - clocking in with 11GB of GDDR6 RAM and clocked at 14Gbps.

Nvidia's presentation included live in-game demonstrations of ray tracing in action from Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Metro: Exodus, Assetto Corsa, and Battlefield V. Besides the real-time Ray Tracing technology, the new RTX GPUs also incorporate the use of shaders and Artificial Intelligence. The GPUs were launched at the pre-Gamescom 2018 event at Cologne, Germany. Across all cards, the base and boost clock of the standard RTX 2080 is 1350MHz and 1545MHz respectively, with the Ti bumping things up to 1515MHz and 1710MHz respectively - with the OC speeds still to be revealed.

The Afghan Taliban's response to cease-fire offer: A mass kidnapping
More than 100 Afghan security forces personnel and up to 250 civilians died, according to early United Nations estimates. Ayubi believes the Taliban were looking for government employees or members of the security forces.

Nvidia rose almost 3% on Monday, clawing their way back after a red open, after CEO Jensen Huang took the stage in Cologne, Germany at the company's GeForce gaming convention to announce a new set of graphics cards. But those graphics cards cost thousands of pound and are way out of the reach of the average PC enthusiast. It's exactly one month until we find out first-hand.

New RT Cores to enable real-time ray tracing of objects and environments with physically accurate shadows, reflections, refractions and global illumination. These cards have the same port cluster as the Gaming X Trio series cards, but they don't have the beefed-up power delivery.

Starting at $499, GeForce RTX graphics cards, including the NVIDIA Founders Edition, will be available worldwide, across 238 countries and territories.

The new GPU architecture has been created to support Nvidia's RTX suite of hardware and software algorithms to help generate ray tracing on the fly, hence the switch from the GTX nomenclature to the RTX prefix. MSI is really going all-out making sure that overclockers have enough power to play with: the RTX 2080 Gaming X Trio requires a pair of eight-pin power connectors, while the RTX 2080 Ti Gaming Trio requires two eight-pin connectors plus an additional six-pin connector.
