MSI spoils Nvidia's big reveal of the RTX 2080

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

It wouldn't be surprising for the Real Time Ray Tracing to come to games since Nvidia is known for introducing new graphical/visuals features with the help of its GameWorks platform. There's also no word yet on the availability of the GeForce RTX 2070.

The first batch of RTX GPUs, announced Monday, promise to bring "the biggest generational leap" in gaming graphics history, according to Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang. 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. Just a few hours after launch, NVIDIA is providing us the full break-down of the GeForce RTX 2080 graphics cards and its components which include the cooler, PCB and the card itself.

The Predator Orion 5000 gaming desktops feature up to the latest NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 GPU, and up to 8th Gen Intel® Core™ i7+ 8700K processors.

Previously, ray tracing - which is often referred to as the "holy grail" of graphics - was so computationally intense that most games relied on less accurate statistical light models to create the shadows and reflections see in a graphics.

GeForce RTX will also support Deep Learning Super-Sampling (DLSS), which will be coming in Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Final Fantasy XV, Ark: Survival Evolved, Hitman 2, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, Serious Sam 4 and more.

Donald Trump Insists He Canceled His Parade, But Blames Washington Locals
The Pentagon encouraged the use of wheeled vehicles only, and no tanks to "minimize damage to local infrastructure". The U.S. has not held a major military parade in Washington since 1991 to mark the end of Operation Desert Storm.

But if you want more performance, then manual overclocking is also available and there's much you can gain by tuning the cards yourself. Shadow of the Tomb Raider showcased how moving point lights could dynamically produce softer shadows and mixing light colours bouncing and adapting to incidental objects.

Nvidia has kicked off Gamescom 2018 with an announcement of the new GeForce RTX 2080 graphics card. Nvidia's G-Sync feature means titles running under the card will have tear-free gameplay, refresh rates of up to 240 Hz, HDR, and 4K. These games will utilize the new DirectX Raytracing (DXR) API developed by Microsoft on Windows.

Not only that, the pre-orders for these GPUs will reportedly start right after they will be announced by Nvidia. We should mention that the NVIDIA Founders Editions of these cards will ship at $1,199, $799 and $599 respectively.

The new NVIDIA GeForce RTX GPUs have reinvented graphics and set a new bar for performance. Regardless, those eager to get their hands on one of the new cards as soon as possible can now place a pre-order.

The 2080 and 2080 Ti will be on shelves on September 20, while the 2070 will be available in October.
