NVIDIA Demonstrates how Faster RTX 2080 is in Comparison to GTX 1080
NVIDIA compares their new video cards presented at Gamescom 2018 to the previous generation
NVIDIA has unveiled the next leap in graphics card technology: ray tracing. Ray tracing enables much more complex modelling of light, which allows for various improvements in reflection, refraction, and shadow rendering. This technology will be the leading force in the upcoming graphics cards — the Turing RTX 2080 and the RTX 2080 Ti.
However, at this week's Gamescom, some showings of the new graphics card left some viewers wanting, with somewhat lackluster performances on some titles, such as Shadow of the Tomb Raider. NVIDIA spoke on the the controversy, stating how the upcoming graphics cards will be 40-50% faster in selected titles. ‘’Not every game will support the technology immediately, but it's a tantalising glimpse of what's to come,’’ Jon Porter of the consumer technology site Trusted Reviews states.
The RTX 2080 will start at $699 and the RTX 2080 Ti will start at $999. Release dates on the graphics cards were not revealed at this time, but preorders are currently available.
