nVidia introduces the new RTX 20 series:

NVIDIA® GeForce RTXTM delivers the ultimate PC gaming experience. Powered by the new NVIDIA Turing™ GPU architecture and the revolutionary RTX platform, RTX graphics cards bring together real-time ray tracing, artificial intelligence, and programmable shading. This is a whole new way to experience games.

Impressive!

WccF Tech took the MSI RTX 2080 range – which we offer in our nVidia category – around the block and after a lot of wheel spin, burns and drifts came to the following conclusion on the top-end MSI GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Gaming X Trio:

The MSI GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Gaming X Trio makes all other cards look puny in sheer performance numbers. It offers a massive uplift to game performance. We are talking over 50% leap when the card is overclocked over the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti.

This card is Editor’s Choice at TechPowerUp:

nVIDIA GeForce RTX doesn’t just give you more performance in existing games. It introduces RTX cores, which accelerate ray tracing—a rendering technique that can give you realism that’s impossible with today’s rasterization rendering.
