Nvidia RTX 2080 Release Date, Specs And Features

The Turing cards are here: Nvidia has announced the RTX 2070, 2080 and 2080 Ti. Here's what you need to know about their release date, prices and specs.

Nvidia started off Gamescom 2018 with a bang by officially announcing the RTX 2070, RTX 2080 and the RTX 2080 Ti based on the long-rumoured Turing architecture.


Following the Ray Trace demo a few months ago on a monstrous $64,000 rig that featured 4x Nvidia Volta cards, we were able to get a glimpse into the future of CGI and gaming with dynamic reflections and lighting that help make virtual worlds feel that much more realistic.

The same demo was run on a single Turing card which helped to highlight the leap forward in technology that Nvidia has been developing in parallel for 10 years.

Nvidia RTX 2070, 2080 and 2080 Ti Release Date
The RTX 2080 Ti and 2080 are available for pre-order now and due to be released on September 20.

The 2070 doesn't have a pre-order date at the moment. This is the card that will catch the eye of most consumers as it promises a massive performance jump despite being the baby of the new range, at a reasonable price considering the current state of the graphics card market.

Nvidia RTX 2070, 2080 and 2080 Ti Pricing
The prices for the cards announced at the event were as follows.
  • Nvidia RTX 2070 - $499
  • Nvidia RTX 2080 - $699
  • Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti - $999
On Nvidia's UK website you will be able to find Founders Editions of the 20 series for the following prices.
Various third-party versions of these cards can also be found on the Overclockers website.

The US pricing for the Founder's Editions of the new cards according to Nvidia's website:

The performance gap between this new Turing generation and the older Pascal architecture is being advertised as nothing short of revolutionary.

The cards are based on the brand new platform which promises up to 6x the performance of the previous generatios, although that's talking specifically about real-time ray tracing - the technology that has had the industry buzzing since Nvidia demonstrated it several months ago.

Real-time ray tracing is a massive step forward in lighting technology in games, allowing dynamic lighting to truly reflect the environment, providing realistic shadows, reflections and lighting effects in real-time.

The new GPUs are equipped with Tensor Cores that can provide over 100 TFLOPs of AI computing power, allowing the GPUs to create and run algorithms to make graphics sharper and more defined.

Nvidia has just released some internal benchmark results - probably to address concerns over the new cards' performance in non-ray traced games. The graph below compares the RTX 2080 to the GTX 1080, but note that the bright green bars are the extra performance when DLSS is enabled in games. And not many games yet support this new technique. (It stands for deep learning super-sampling and is basically an alternative way to do anti-aliasing to smooth out jagged lines).

So, what can you take away from this? Well, four of the games here were run in HDR mode, and there's no detail on which quality settings were used. However, it is possible to see that the RTX 2080 offers a fair chunk of extra performance even in current games, without ray tracing, DLSS or HDR. 

The average performance gain appears to be 30-50 percent, and Nvidia says that all the new RTX cards will handle modern games in 4K at 60fps. But we'll still have to wait and see how they perform in our own tests to know for sure.

Upcoming Xperia device could have first hexa camera setup
The latest rumours suggest Sony could be working on a new smartphone with a staggering six rear cameras. It is thought the as yet unnamed handset would become the latest in the Japanese company’s Xperia line.
If manufactured, the device will be the first hexa camera smartphone produced for mass release. Combining this with dual front-facing selfie cameras could mean an unprecedented eight cameras on a single smartphone.

Google Pixel 4 Release Date, Price & Spec Rumours

Google has released the first images of Pixel 4 ahead of its October launch. Here's what we know so far about the Pixel 4 and 4 XL.
Following months of rumours and concept artwork, Google has put the cat among the pigeons by releasing a genuine render (above) of Pixel 4 via its Twitter page: this is the real deal.
Rocking the same square camera module that leaked earlier this week via @OnLeaks and @PriceBaba, the image also reveals that the rear-mounted fingerprint sensor has disappeared, suggesting Google will join the in-display fingerprint sensor trend. The earlier leak also revealed that the speaker grilles moved to the bottom of the handset.

Blue Note Records Beyond the Notes Movie Review

Hits All the Right Notes
It took me a very long time to understand that jazz wasn't meandering and boring. At some point I came around enough to at least appreciate it and even really like some of it, although I remain very far from an aficionado.
Blue Note Records is an American jazz record label established in 1939 by Alfed Lion and Max Margulis, two German-Jewish immigrants. At its outset the label was dedicated to recording traditional jazz and small group swing, but in 1947 they switched their attention to modern jazz.

Xbox Two release date rumours, design and more

Xbox Two release date rumours, design and more Microsoft’s Xbox One didn’t have the greatest launch – it was overpriced thanks to the ‘requirement’ of the Kinect (which has since been completely discontinued) and the requirement of an internet connection to function pushed many to Sony’s PS4. The console has improved substantially since launch, both in terms of features and pricing, and the introduction of the high-end Xbox One X has grabbed the interest of many.
