    Some hints:

    RoyTeX = RTX
    Mac-20 = 20 Series
    Eight-Tee = 80
    Not_11 = not called 1180
    AlanaT = Alan Turing
    Zenith20 = 20 series
    Ray = RTX

    text that says "give me 20"
    text with GPS numbers "50.968495,7.014026" that specifies the location of the launch

    the launch date is 20 Aug 2018, the numbers appear in the order of 2,0,8,0

    It's called RTX 2080 folks

    The pcb leak showed a new connector presumably for sli.

    Nicely done, op!

    If is correct, I'm not quite sure what to think. The Titan will be far out of my budget for anything but a single card, but dual 2080 cards only slightly faster than a 1080 TI SLI, as I already have Titan Xps in SLI... But I guess Ray Tracing and all might be interesting to work with.

    The supposed “RTX Titan” not announced at the developer-oriented Siggraph event gives me hope that it’ll be a gaming Titan this time around.

    I wonder if I can fool someone into buying my old Matrox RTX cards, lol
    They were pricey when we got them, around $1000 for the RT.X100 and $1800 for the RT.X2.

    You should know ADorkedTV is Pro-AMD/Anti-NVIDIA...so I would take anything that muppet says with a ton of salt...his tecnical insigths are very lacking.

    Crazy how real time ray-tracing has been a pipe dream for decades and it's finally on the doorstep. I've long since written it off as just another buzz word I'd to gloss over.

    Seeing the demos though, it looks like we're a generation or two away from having it as a consumer option, at least in hardware. Wonder how long it will take for the industry to adopt it.

    I'm certifiable, but I plan on picking this card up day one for my trusty 6 year old Sandy Bridge rig. LOL

    I will be going from a Nvidia GTX970 to the GTX2080. I will upgrade the Proc, Mobo and Mem soon after. Gonna be wild to see how much this old rig is going to bottleneck this new card. If the 1080ti holds back +/- 10FPS in the games I play, this card I'm assuming might be +/- 20 FPS ballpark. Benches will tell I guess.

    Could be that NVLink is trickling down to consumers. SLI is extremely outdated at this point and no one has made any effort at all to improve multi GPU.
    Metro: Exodus will have real time ray tracing and it comes out February 22. It's going to be playable at Gamescom, so I'm going to assume it will be demoed on Turing to show the tech off and coincide with the announcement.

    This will likely be me as well. Unless the regular 2080 comes out and blows my 1080ti out of the water (not likely), I'll be holding out for the ti version.

    Wow i remember those matrox cards, back in 99 we were doing streaming with Real and Microsoft and Matrox was one of the best encoding cards you could get,

    that was fun times.

    thanks

    I'm excited - to finally have a $250-$300 video card that's worth purchasing...In another year :(


    While the GTX 1060 was a good card, the 3GB version is way too castrated (both in 8% core cut AND memory size), and they used the opportunity to bump the price on the 6GB card by $30 versus the GTX 960 4GB launch price...which is now a $70 premium over what it should have been.

    If the rumors/leaks are true then it is believed that the RTX 2080 will be up to 10% faster than the GTX 1080 Ti - not enough for me. I need a 20%+ increase before I upgrade.

    why would anyone bother looking for a 980 Ti when used GTX 1070's are = to or < than $300 these days? A 1070 is faster, runs much cooler, sucks much less electricity from the wall socket and HAS A WARRANTY (at least if it's EVGA)?

    IMO ANY 970, 980 or 980 Ti priced over $200 is a rip off price

    I meant once the new cards are out and the 1080 ti drops to that price point. Or something around that. Probably going to be awhile.

    This comes up every new launch.
    Name the last launch were the prices of previous generation dropped like a rock?

    I like that Nvidia is changing the prefix from GTX to RTX...signaling that they are really bullish on ray-tracing being the next big thing

    Yup, why I keep saying...this reminds me of their G80 launch when they launched their CUDA cores.
    Now they launch "RT cores" (Raytracing Cores) which I suspect will have just a big impact as CUDA cores had over time.

    RTX is not pure ray tracing. You've been watching too many Jensen leather jacket videos.

    I'll predict that these Raytracing cores wont get used much, sure mayby there will be support in a couple of games in 6-12 months, but it will be patched in like .. dare I say it... PhysX

    the gamemakers won't utilize features that only 0,1% can use anyway..

    it took DX12 a looooong time to be utilized... and that is still something we are waiting for..

    and if/when DXR goes mainstream, new hardware will be out running it faster.

    I smell a dud..

    Try thinking of it like this:

    Today you have quality settings like this:
    Low - (non Raytracing AO, GI and Shadows).
    Medium - (non Raytracing AO, GI and Shadows).
    High - (non Raytracing AO, GI and Shadows).
    Ultra - (non Raytracing AO, GI and Shadows).

    A simple way this will change is this (and it will not break gameplay):

    Low - (non Raytracing AO, GI and Shadows).
    Medium - (non Raytracing AO, GI and Shadows).
    High - (non Raytracing AO, GI and Shadows).
    Ultra - (non Raytracing AO, GI and Shadows).
    Realistic - (Raytraced AO, GI and Shadows).

    Raytracing is comming like it or not.
    NVIDIA is doing it...and promoting it.
    AMD is doing it (kinda) and promoting it.
    INTEL is doing it and promoting it.

    I happen to agree with you, perhaps next generation it might matter to people but raytracing as it is now is of no importance to the majority of people.
