Watch Nvidia unveil its newest GeForce graphics cards live right here

According to the website, the new GeForce RTX graphics cards are powered by the Turing GPU architecture. The clock speeds of both the RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti aren't clear yet, but that's sure be revealed by Nvidia on Monday.

But you may have noticed that Nvidia is using RTX rather than the GTX prefix.

All of this power is coming packed into the new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 20 series which includes three different cards at launch.

The most powerful of the two cards arriving next month, the RTX 2080 Ti, will start at $999.




The GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and RTX 2080 are available for pre-order today, and will ship on September 20. That new nomenclature is a nod to the ray-tracing capabilities of the new Turing architecture.

The big announcement was preceded by extensive remarks from Huang about the significance of the company's Turing enhancements. Nvidia says that Turing delivers up to 6X the performance of to previous-generation Pascal GPUs.

Despite all the talk of ray tracing, the effect can be pretty subtle. Games like Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Metro: Exodus, and Battlefield V showcased how this tech is implemented by comparing a scene with RTX turned on and off.

It can also create accurate light reflections on glass, metal, and over the eyes of in-game human characters. It's been expected for some time that the company will be unveiling the new set of RTX 2080 video cards, and a new leak offering detailed specs all but confirms the upcoming reveal. These new GPUs will also feature the standard NVIDIA features such as Showplay, VR support, 4K output, DirectX 12 support, G-Sync, HDR and many more. That unveil was attached to the far pricier RTX Quadro line, whose cards cost as much as $10,000 and focus even more intensely on real-time raytracing-though that higher-end product is targeted more squarely at digital imaging shops who want to cut down processing times for individual frames in Hollywood-caliber productions.
