The Nvidia GeForce RTX series brings real-time ray tracing, artificial intelligence, and programmable shading together for a new PC gaming experience.

The core foundation of the GeForce RTX 20 series is the new NVIDIA RTX platform which is a new hybrid rendering engine that allows for impressive results. Meanwhile, the RTX 2080, will go for $699. These new GPUs will also feature the standard NVIDIA features such as Showplay, VR support, 4K output, DirectX 12 support, G-Sync, HDR and many more.

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. It was here that the manufacturer introduced GeForce RTX, next-generation hardware that promises up to six times faster performance than previous generation video cards.

The 2080 and 2080 Ti will be on shelves on September 20, while the 2070 will be available in October.

Nvidia launched a new lineup of graphics cards at an event in Germany on Monday. Though the new models remain visually identical to their older counterparts, Dell has added NVIDIA GeForce RTX GPU options for the towers and new keyboards to the laptops.

Nvidia's GeForce RTX cards are officially out of the ray-traced bag, and every card maker seems eager to join in. Both the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and GeForce RTX 2080 are getting Gaming X Trio versions. Along with the usual speed and enhanced graphics that entails, this also means GeForce RTX supports real-time ray tracing in supported games - including Battlefield 5, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and Metro Exodus.

Interestingly, the new stock card moves to a dual-fan design.

It can also create accurate light reflections on glass, metal, and over the eyes of in-game human characters.

The pro-level Turing cards have been built for the rigours of ray tracing, and by sporting the same RTX moniker it's looking like the new GeForce gaming cards are going to be heavily focused on the same ray traced goal. Regardless, those eager to get their hands on one of the new cards as soon as possible can now place a pre-order.
