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.
The RTX 20 series will offer up to a six-time performance boost over Nvidia GPUs built with the older Pascal architecture, which was announced in 2016 and is used in the current GTX 10 lineup. According to Nvidia, these are the retail prices for the third-party manufacturer cards.
In addition to the ray-tracing support, which is enabled by new Turing RT cores on each card specialized for ray-tracing, the RTX cards also do everything else we've come to expect from high-end graphics cards. You can see 100% more detail thanks to seeing the flame in the reflection of the water, or in the reflections of windows on the buildings on the street.
Asus has also revealed its take on the GeForce RTX cards with prices for Blighty, with the RTX 2080 starting at £889.30 and topping out with a cranked up RTX 2080 Ti costing £1,344. The flagship card will have 11 GB of memory with 4352 CUDA cores, a 20% jump from the previous generation. It's the first time the tech has been made widely available to every day consumers.
However, that's a big claim, and things are sure to differ on a per game basis, especially as many titles will require extra work from devs to support many of Nvidia's new RTX features.

The newGeForce RTX 2080 and GeForce RTX 2080 Ti are rated for 10.5 Tflops and 14 Tflops respectively.
The non-Founders Edition versions of the cards, which aren't available through the Nvidia website, start from $US499 internationally. Earlier this month, Nvidia had launched its new Quadro line of GPUs at SIGGRAPH Computer Conference, which were the first GPUs from the company to sport the Turing architecture.
And it all looks rather stunning in the demos shown on stage, though maybe less so in the post-show capture session pushing the new RTX 2080 Ti to its limits.
Previously, ray tracing - which is often referred to as the "holy grail" of graphics - was so computationally intense that most games relied on less accurate statistical light models to create the shadows and reflections see in a graphics.
