NVIDIA has officially announced its next-gen GeForce RTX 2080 and GeForce RTX 2080 Ti graphics cards, here in Cologne, Germany at their huge GeForce Gaming Celebration event.

It's been a long time, but after first announcing the Pascal architecture in 2014 and then releasing the GTX 1070 and 1080 in May 2016, Nvidia finally has a new top-of-the-line graphics card for the PC gamers.

Nvidia has also recruited publishers of some of the biggest upcoming games of 2018, as evidenced by a few tweets using the company's #BeForTheGame hashtag. You'll notice that the RTX 2080 Ti has its GPU clocked lower than the RTX 2080, but it has much more CUDA cores (4352 versus 2944). Last but not least, the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Amp is probably the speediest of all four cards, though Zotac doesn't say how fast its chip will tick in use.

"With the powerful Orion series gaming desktops, our new GeForce RTX GPUs provide consumers with an incredible gaming experience." said Tim Bender, Vice President of Consumer Sales at NVIDIA.

The general global availability of these cards will be from 20 September onwards.

But before we go on, ray-tracing for the uninitiated is a rendering technique that traces the path of light rays that illuminates an entire scene; that includes the reflection of reflections in reflections. We will be reaching out to manufacturers everywhere for details regarding the release of their respective GeForce RTX cards in Malaysia, so keep a look for such information coming your way when the time comes.

Popular component maker GIGABYTE put forward a number of its known cards with RTX 20 branding on them. Either way, you can be sure we're going to put the new 20-series cards through the ringer when they become available next month. At the top, the RTX 2080 Ti offers the full 10 Giga Rays per second, 78T RTX-OPS, and an 11GB frame buffer and will start at $999 excluding tax. Regardless, those eager to get their hands on one of the new cards as soon as possible can now place a pre-order.
