Alienware Announces Upgraded Gaming Desktops With Nvidia RTX GPUs

All of this is packed beneath an elegant looking cooler which doesn't use the same design pattern as the GeForce 10 series founders edition cards.

For the full details and tech specs head over to NVIDIA. Let's get to it...

The new 20-series GPUs are expected to deliver up to 6 times the performance of the previous-generation graphics cards. The RTX listings for the cards have since been taken down.

As such, all founders edition cards come with a 90 MHz overclock out of the box. That's something in the region of an eight-fold improvement. Besides the real-time Ray Tracing technology, the new RTX GPUs also incorporate the use of shaders and Artificial Intelligence.

However, that's a big claim, and things are sure to differ on a per game basis, especially as many titles will require extra work from devs to support many of Nvidia's new RTX features.

New NGX neural graphics framework integrates AI into the overall graphics pipeline, enabling AI algorithms to perform unbelievable image enhancement and generation.

Trump’s Military Parade Is Delayed
The cost was initially put at a minimum of $10 million, a decline in real terms on a parade marking the end of the Gulf War in... Defense Secretary Jim Mattis later told reporters he "had received no such estimate" and said he would "discount that".

Four cards are available to pre-order in the United Kingdom from eBuyer, Overclockers and Scan, with the recommended price of the Asus Dual RTX 2080 Ti weighing in at around £1,340 (around $1,720, AU$2,335), and the Asus Turbo RTX 2080 Ti costing £1,275 (around $1,635, AU$2,220).

The 2080 offers ray tracing at 8 GigaRays per second, while the 2080 Ti offers ray tracing at 10 GigaRays per second, along with 78 trillion RTX ops. We should mention that the NVIDIA Founders Editions of these cards will ship at $1,199, $799 and $599 respectively.

The RTX 2080 / 2080 Ti logo is seen on the side and has LEDs to glow when the card is operational. The wooden stock of your gun has low level, ray traced reflections on it, hell, even the watery eyes of your soldier seems to. Namely - the games that will support all this real-time and AI-powered malarkey.

This is a light rendering technique that basically gives developers the ability to calculate shadows and reflections right down to a single beam of light in order to create hyper-realistic graphics such as the ones we saw in the jaw-dropping Star Wars Unreal Engine ray tracing teaser released back at GDC in March.

Nvidia also announced a number of major games built on the RTX platform, including Battlefield V and Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Nvidia showed how the new technology will look in upcoming games including Shadow of the Tomb Raider and Metro Exodus.

The RTX 2070 will be available in October, and start at $499 USD, with the RTX 2080 at $699 USD, and the RTX 2080 Ti listed for $999 USD. Preorder options are available from Nvidia's website... if you can afford it.
