Made this thread so that we can all discuss the Nvidia announcements and anything else juicy being revealed at GamesCom 2018

EDIT 5

GeForce RTX 2080 3DMark Time Spy Benchmark Leak Approaches Titan Xp Performance


https://wccftech.com/nvidia-geforce-rtx-2080-3dmark-timespy-score-leaked-clocked-at-2ghz-and-beats-a... https://hothardware.com/news/geforce-rtx-2080-3dmark-timespy-benchmark-leak-titan-xp-performance


EDIT 4

Nvidia 2080 first benchmarks:

Nvidia Shares RTX 2080 Test Results: 35 - 125% Faster Than GTX 1080

https://www.tomshardware.com/news/nvidia-rtx-2080-gaming-benchmarks-rasterized,37679.html

Under certain conditions, 50%< most likely across the board without the use of AI-powered anti-aliasing.

We’re not expecting to average 50%-higher frame rates across our benchmark suite. However, enthusiasts who previously speculated that Turing wouldn’t be much faster than Pascal due to its relatively lower CUDA core count weren’t taking underlying architecture into account. There’s more going on under the hood than the specification sheet suggests.

This is what I mentioned earlier. Now the 2080 Ti has almost 50% more Turing CUDA cores than the 2080, holy shit, that thing is going to be a beast.

EDIT 1
Nvidia announces QUATRO workstation cards based on Turing Technology and RTX (Real-Time Raytracing)
Interesting tidbit from Nvidia press release on new Quadros:
  • New RT Cores to enable real-time ray tracing of objects and environments with physically accurate shadows, reflections, refractions and global illumination.
  • Hardware support for USB Type-C™ and VirtualLink™(1), a new open industry standard being developed to meet the power, display and bandwidth demands of next-generation VR headsets through a single USB-C™ connector.
  • New and enhanced technologies to improve the performance of VR applications, including Variable Rate Shading, Multi-View Rendering and VRWorks Audio.

Oooo that was a bit cheeky - picture of a 2080 Ti and "Starts at $499"


Which is their 2070 according to the next pic i the stream xD i'm confused on their pricing. It doesnt match the site nor the stream xD



Nah it's clear(ly fecking expensive):

2070 - £569

2080 - £749

2080 Ti - £1,049

https://www.nvidia.co.uk/geforce/buy/


It's even worse in Euro's...

1260 euro's for the 2080 TI, 850 euros for the 2080, 640 euro for the 2070.

I think the $999 pricing for the Ti is MSRP .. not for the FE editions.

Kotaku are saying the Australian price for the 2080TI is $1899au, which works out to $1390us.

The 2080 is $1199au, which is only $30 more than I paid for my MSI 1080 back in 2016.

Eh?  You paid how much for a 1080?  They were about £550 when they came out weren't they?

Yeah I think I'll wait till AMD releases some more info on there 7nm graphic cards (Navi) before thinking of buying Nvidia's overpriced stuff.

Ooooo the horror  😞
A PC with lots of gadgets inside and a thing to see in 3D that you put on your head.
