RTX 2080 Ti

Soon after the official announcement of Nvidia’s upcoming RTX series graphics cards, it has become a hot topic of discussion in the computer hardware market and many users are ready to purchase this GPU’s. Nvidia’s RTX GPU’s comes with the latest technology and according to the CEO of Nvidia, one RTX GPU performs better than that of Nvidia’s 1080ti which is presently the fastest graphics card considering the fact that the new GPU’s will be shipped in the coming month.

The RTX series GPU’s Turing architecture can be said to be the masterpiece of cutting-edge technology and comes with the combination of the new RTX platform along with real-time ray tracing, artificial intelligence and programmable shading which takes you to a whole new world of visual details.

Real-time Ray Tracing is the definitive solution for lifelike lighting, reflections, and shadows, offering a level of realism far beyond what’s possible using traditional rendering techniques and the RTX 20 series GPU’s will is the first to use this technology.

The RTX GPU’s are also equipped with a powerful Artificial Intelligence and this technology of having an AI inside a GPU makes it the most advanced one. The AI is armed with Tensor Cores which is capable of running powerful AI algorithms in real time which creates crisp, clear, lifelike images and special effects which were impossible in the previous GPU’s. Moreover, the RTX series GPU’s also possesses Advanced Shading Technologies which are more powerful, flexible and better in performance than its earlier predecessors.

However, the ongoing debate on whether you should buy this new GPU immediately or not will continue for some more time. But if you check the benchmarks that have been officially released by Nivida between the RTX 2080 and 2×1080 you will be able to decide for yourself.

According to the benchmarks, the new RTX series GPU’s will be performing approximately 46-60% better than that of the 2 nos. of GTX 1080, however, titles supporting NVIIDA’s new anti-aliasing technique DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling) will get a roughly boost of 100%.

But in a recently leaked information from Videocardz, it shades some information in Shrader intensive task where the RTX cards are roughly 50% faster on average than that of Pascal based GPU which means that certain titles which are Shrader intensive will see improvement.

The RTX 20 series GPU’s range starts at around $800 which might be a bit higher for many users but one thing is certain when a new technology hits the market along with amazing features, it takes some time for the price to get lower. As of for now, no hands-on reviews are available and only a handful reviewers have received the sample for testing but they are not permitted to post anything about it until 14th of September. Therefore it would be wise to wait a bit further and get detailed information about the RTX cards until everything comes out from the darkness.
