Nvidia has kicked off Gamescom 2018 with an announcement of the new GeForce RTX 2080 graphics card. While it may not receive quite as much hype as E3, the expo has reached attended of over 300,000 visitors every year since 2013.

The new lineup of video cards includes the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, 2080, and 2070. They support numerous same technologies as well, whether that's real-time ray tracing, NVIDIA Ansel, or G-SYNC. The Founders Editions will be priced at $599, $799 and $1,199, respectively. Have no doubt, this is a major architectural overhaul for Nvidia; the Turing Streaming Multiprocessor (SM) has a brand new design with the ability to perform independent floating point and integer operations.

With the help of Nvidia's real-time ray tracing tech, DICE is able to reflect explosions, fire, and the surrounding environment dynamically, emulating the surfaces of water, glass, and cars while taking into account the angle at which the player is viewing them. And there may even be a surprise appearance of an RTX 2080 Ti, 2070, and 2060 too if the rampant wild speculation is to be believed.

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. Do note that these pricings are meant for NVIDIA's own Founders Edition cards and naturally, pricing for custom cards from manufacturers will be different from one model to another. "Computer graphics will never be the same again", he said at the Gamescom conference in Germany. Upcoming games with ray tracing include Battlefield V, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Metro Exodus, Control, Assetto Corsa Competizione and more.

And she thought, 'I can't commit to being in the house'. "What she wanted to do was sort that out". "She wants to come on". But she pulled out at the last minute, and her lawyer said producers "insisted she conduct herself in a certain way".

But Neil Etheridge was the hero for the Bluebirds, blocking Kenedy's unconvincing spot-kick to secure a share of the spoils. Ayoze Perez made a vital block when Cardiff defender Sol Bamba headed Joe Ralls' corner goalwards in the 10th minute.

Nvidia claims Turing can accelerate real-time ray tracing up to 25 times faster than the older Pascal architecture, so expect better-looking environments in your games.

We don't want to fall victims of the hype and we'd need to see how these Turing cards perform in the new desktop PCs.

While both cards are mostly the same, there is a fair difference in price.
