NVIDIA has made it official. The least powerful version of its new GeForce RTX Series of gaming cards will launch on October 17th. The company made the announcement today via Twitter, and the GeForce RTX 2070 Turing-based graphics cards will have a starting price of $499 for third-party cards. If you want an NVIDIA-branded Founders Edition card, you'll have to fork over $599. However, if the GeForce RTX 2080 and GeForce RTX 2080 Ti represent an accurate readout of pricing, it may be quite some time before we see custom GeForce RTX 2070 cards approach that $499 street price. Custom GeForce RTX 2070... Read more...

To date, NVIDIA has disclosed a number of details regarding its GeForce RTX series graphics cards, based on the bleeding-edge Turing GPU architecture. We covered NVIDIA’s official announcements direct from Gamescom, where high-level features like Ray Tracing, DLSS, NVLink, and pricing were initially revealed and followed up with a nice, long podcast chat with NVIDIA’s own Tom Petersen, during which a handful of interesting tid-bits were divulged. We were able to dive into the Turing architecture last week, where we detailed and explained what makes Turing tick in all of its brain-melting... Read more...
A few weeks back, at an event just prior to the Gamescom kick-off in Cologne, Germany, NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang officially unveiled the company’s initial GeForce RTX 2000 series graphics card line-up, based on its new Turing GPU microarchitecture. Jensen discussed a number of the cards’ new features and capabilities, including real-time hardware accelerated ray tracing, a new deep learning assisted anti-aliasing technology dubbed DLSS, and he covered some specific speeds and feeds regarding the upcoming GeForce RTX cards themselves. Many other deeper technical details regarding... Read more...
NVIDIA knows how to make an entrance, that's for sure. The GPU maker stole the spotlight at Gamescom last month by unveiling its hotly anticipated GeForce RTX graphics cards with real-time ray tracing support, which will ship later this month. In the meantime, NVIDIA just announced another product at its GPU Technology Conference (GTC) in Japan, the Tesla T4. The Tesla T4 is a burly accelerator built for data centers that will enable the next wave of AI-powered services. It's based on NVIDIA's Turing GPU architecture and is being billed as the most advanced inference accelerator ever built, with... Read more...
NVIDIA recently announced a new generation of desktop graphics cards for consumers based on its Turing GPU architecture, and with specialized real-time ray tracing hardware underneath the hood. These new cards have the potential to usher in a new era in gaming. But what about mobile? It stands to reason that mobile GPU launch will follow, and that seems to be the case. Playing games with parts of scenes displaying real-time ray tracing effects is certainly exciting. It's also a demanding ask of the hardware. The desktop is the logical place to start, though it's not the only place gamers play PC... Read more...
Yesterday afternoon, we had the pleasure of chatting with Tom Petersen (TAP), NVIDIA's Director of Technical Marketing and a Distinguished Engineer. Given that NVIDIA's next-generation graphics cards are on everyone's mind these days, it should come as no surprise that we went straight into exploring the Turing architecture that underpins the GeForce RTX 2070, RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti. We peppered Tom with questions on what we can expect from Turing's various new technologies like Ray Tracing, Tensor cores, DLSS and the expected performance lift over NVIDIA's previous gen GeForce...

We have a treat coming up for you all tomorrow afternoon, as we’ll be hosting a livestream chat with Tom Petersen, who serves as the Director of Technical Marketing for NVIDIA. It doesn’t take a cryptologist to figure out what we’re going to be talking about: all things NVIDIA Turing of course. Early last week, NVIDIA announced its next-generation gaming graphics card lineup which includes the GeForce RTX 2070, RTX 2080 and the RTX 2080 Ti. In addition to promising raw gaming performance gains over the previous generation GeForce GTX 10 series, these new Turing cards also... Read more...
This week at Gamescom 2018, NVIDIA held a GeForce Gaming Celebration to unveil its new GeForce RTX 2080 and 2070 series graphics cards, based on its new Turing GPU architecture. The NVIDIA GPU that powers GeForce RTX cards ushers in a wealth of new technologies, enabled by its new processing engines. These new technologies include hardware-accelerated, real-time Ray Tracing and a new form of anti-aliasing called DLSS or Deep Learning Super Sampling, among a few others we can't talk about just yet. What’s interesting about DLSS is that it uses Turing’s Tensor cores to enable a deep learning-powered... Read more...
Despite the fact that NVIDIA has kept tight-lipped about its upcoming Turing-based GeForce graphics cards, it really does seem like the worst-kept secret by this point. More information is starting to trickle out, and unfortunately for NVIDIA, its own partners are doing that leaking. Today, we learn of the specs of the so-called GeForce RTX 2080 Ti - notice the "RTX" there in place of "GTX". If it proves true, and it seems more and more likely that it is, then the GTX name is gone - at least in the high-end. At the professional graphics conference SIGGRAPH, which took place in Vancouver last week,... Read more...
Most of the information surrounding NVIDIA's next round of consumer cards has been focused on the GeForce RTX 2080, which the company is expected to announce on Monday, August 20, a day before Gamescom 2018 kicks off. There will be other Turing cards, though, and one of them has seemingly made an appearance on Futuremark's 3DMark benchmarking database. Well, maybe. The database entry points to a "GTX 2060 5gb," which immediately triggers a red flag to us. Unless NVIDIA has been faking everyone out, it will use the "RTX" branding for its next generation Turing cards for consumers, just as it has... Read more...
NVIDIA's GeForce RTX series of graphics cards isn't supposed to be officially unveiled until August 20th, but we're already getting our first look at retail cards that will be shipping soon. MSI tends to be a bit "leaky" when it comes to new product releases, and the GeForce RTX 2080 is no exception. An alleged box shot has leaked that shows the GeForce RTX 2080 Gaming X Trio, complete with a triple-fan cooling system. For those familiar with MSI's graphics offerings, this setup is very similar to the company's current-generation GTX 1080 and GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X Trio cards. The box also confirms... Read more...
Last night, NVIDIA dropped its first Turing GPU bombshell on us with the launch of the Quadro RTX 5000, RTX 6000, and RTX 8000. While those are no doubt impressive GPUs with plenty of horsepower to back them up, gamers aren't prepared to plop down $2,300 to $10,000 for a graphics card. With this in mind, NVIDIA posted a teaser video for its next-generation GeForce lineup, which is scheduled to be announced next week at Gamescom. Although at first glance the teaser video doesn't seem to provide much insight into the new cards, some eagle-eyed Redditors have laid out the evidence that the first card... Read more...
We are getting oh-so-close to the launch of NVIDIA's next-generation of consumer graphics cards, presumably launching on August 20, if previous rumors and leaks turn out to accurate. As that date draws closer, there is more evidence of what is to come. That evidence can be found at the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) where NVIDIA has filed a few interesting names. One of the names is "Turing." Up until now, we have seen the Turing name show up only in unofficial leaks, but now NVIDIA has made the trademark official. This is the strongest evidence yet that NVIDIA's next-gen GPUs will carry... Read more...
