Weekly digest - 2018.34
This week Nvidia unveiled the new GeForce RTX 2000 series of graphics cards at Gamescom. New series is a long-awaited successor of GTX 1000 series. Based on new Turing architecture, the RTX 2080 is a big step forward into achieving real-time ray-tracing effects in games. Beside new effects, Nvidia also promises a 6 times more performance comparing to previous generation of GPUs.
Cards were available for preorder with shipment scheduled for 20th of September. The reference pricing for the cards is following:
- RTX 2070 is $499
- RTX 2080 is $699
- RTX 2080 Ti is $999
- RTX 2070 Founders Edition is $599
- RTX 2080 Founders Edition is $799
- RTX 2080 Founders Edition Ti is $1,199
Despite the high prices, all cards are already sold out. And thanks to crypto-miners, I would not expect to see them available before premiere or with lower prices.
This is it for this week. Before you leave, please check this list of interesting things out.
