Alienware Announces Upgraded Gaming Desktops With Nvidia RTX GPUs

It will be equipped with 2,944 CUDA cores - not the 3,072 that had been previously reported - and offer memory bandwidth of 448Gbps over a 256-bit memory bus.

But given everything else NVIDIA's Turing architecture can do, including real-time ray tracing and AI acceleration, you can expect the 2080 Ti to be capable of much more. A Founders Edition of the card runs at a top speed of 1,800MHz, while the vanilla card hits 1,710MHz.

Completing the line-up, the blower type thermal design of AERO isolates the airflow used in cooling the graphics card and ejects it out of the system through the back.

Leaks suggest we'll see the new RTX 2080 Ti and RTX 2080. The Founders Editions will be priced at $599, $799 and $1,199, respectively.

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. This has an 80mm blower-style fan and also has the same rear output config and backplate as the other 20-series ZOTAC models.

Eidos Montréal's Shadow of the Tomb Raider is inevitably all about shadows, showing how much softer and natural they look with the help of ray tracing.

Investors, who have ignored recent scandals to boost shares to an all-time high, turned the other way in after-hours trading. Amazon shares, up 55 percent this year versus 6 percent for the S&P 500 as of Thursday's close, trade at a premium, too.

It's been over two years since the current generation of Nvidia's graphics cards were released.

Sure, we heard these cards were more powerful than the GTX 1080 Ti, but only when it comes to Ray Tracing. So when Nvidia says this is industry shifting change, you might be inclined to believe them. And in real-time no less.

At the start of Gamescom, Square-Enix has unveiled that Shadow of the Tomb Raider is going to have real-time ray tracing.

Nvidia Corp NVDA.O on Monday released a new generation of gaming chips that combine its latest "ray tracing" technology and artificial intelligence to give gamers access to more realistic graphics.

There were quite a few demos at the presentation that show the difference between the performance of the Pascal architecture GPUs and the Turing ones. After showing a trailer for Battlefield V, which supports the new technology, Huang announced that the game will go into open beta on Sep. 6.

We don't want to fall victims of the hype and we'd need to see how these Turing cards perform in the new desktop PCs. These versions will most probably come out next year too.
