Nvidia also announced the pricing and the availability dates at the keynote, so all announced Geforce RTX series cards are available for pre-order as of yesterday and likely to be on retail/e-tail shelves on September 20th, although the RTX 2070 is already out of stock.

These new cards are expensive, but they're actually nowhere near as expensive as we'd anticipated and feared going into the event, with the cheapest option clocking in at just $499. The flagship RTX 2080 Ti draws 250 watts, while the "regular" RTX 2080 draws a minimum of 215 watts (225 for the Founder's Edition), using 6-pin and 8-pin header connectors.

All ROG Strix graphics cards are produced using Auto-Extreme Technology, an automated manufacturing process. To refresh you, for comparison sake, the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti is said to employ a Turing GPU with 4352 CUDA cores plus 11GB GDDR6 memory on a 352-bit bus.

If that's a bit rich for you - and you'll likely need a 4K, 120hz monitor to make the most of it in many games - there's also the GTX 2080 which features 8GB of GDDR6 RAM and other slightly reduced specs and thh GTX 2070 - a weaker still card but still one that outstrips nearly everything on the market right now. If you look deeper and closer at the video it is FILLED with hints, and unofficially, it reveals the name of the to be releas. Shadow Of The Tomb Raider was shown running on the new graphics card and from what we can see the new graphics card is unable to run the game at 60 FPS with RTX on. But those graphics cards cost thousands of pound and are way out of the reach of the average PC enthusiast.

As most of you reckon that EVGA is the best Nvidia AIB partner, let us have a quick look over that leaked design, as an example of what to expect with these third party designs. So when Nvidia says this is industry shifting change, you might be inclined to believe them. And in real-time no less. And Metro: Exodus is able to achieve a much darker atmosphere, with Global Illumination finally being replicated in the way real-world light works.

Normally, ray-tracing would take a serious amount of graphical power to run; we're talking Nvidia DXG supercomputer level. NVIDIA also highlights that these cards are powered by their latest Turing architecture, and will have a ray-tracing feature, for real-time light reflections and cinematic effects in your games.

Huang described the generational lead from the very capable Pascal architecture to Turing as a "shocking contrast", which certainty cranks the hype machine for the new GeForce graphics. Aurora mid-tower desktop is targeted for gamers who need significant performance and upgradability.
