Nvidia’s New RTX Graphics Cards Run $600 to $1200

Last year's Nvidia event at gamescom saw the company announce the PC port of Final Fantasy 15, for instance, with Square Enix and Nvidia entering into a close-knit partnership to develop technology for that game.

Nvidia tends to reveal "Ti", which stands for titanium in this case, versions of its flagship graphics cards after the main consumer range has been revealed.

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, GeForce RTX 2080, and GeForce RTX 2070 are all powered by the new Turing GPU architecture, bringing together "real-time ray tracing, artificial intelligence, and programmable shading", according to the announcement. But that's a $10 000 card, and not even close to something you'd want in your desktop for gaming.

The webpage update, which went live a bit before the press conference, wrapped also promised to show off videos of "Shadow of the Tomb Raider", "Metro Exodus", and "Battlefield V" illustrating how the new lighting tech and cards would impact the games. So no real surprises, but there's still a lot of information that isn't quite yet locked down well enough to take it as fact. But here's what we know so far.

Or Watch UFDTech's Stream, for reasons.

This is the first time that Nvidia has announced a "Ti" variant simultaneously with a new architecture.

We'll have more to share on the new cards in the coming hours as more is revealed. For both virtual reality (VR) and non-VR videogames these announcements aren't just about the software, they're about the hardware too.
