RTX Ray Tracing seems to tank in-game performance

  • Nvidia announces new raytracing-focused RTX 2080, 2080 Ti graphics cards

Both the RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti will pack dedicated cores for enhanced real-time image rendering and processing.

The new and powerful NVIDIA GeForce RTX desktop video cards are built with enthusiasts and professionals in mind, delivering faster performance over previous generations.

A GeForce RTX 2070 is also due in October - with pre-orders open for all Founders Edition cards now via NVIDIA.

We'll undoubtedly get more information about Nvidia's developer relations efforts in the days leading up to retail availability of GeForce RTX cards.

The cards are the first time ray tracing is available to every day consumers. Today we are extremely proud to share with you our take on NVIDIA's exciting new GeForce RTX 20 series GPUs. What sets these "RTX" models apart from their GTX counterparts is an all-new SM design that includes an RTX core as well as a new type of hardware Nvidia calls Tensor cores. Also with the AI capabilities this also means games that support the new Deep Learning Super-Sampling (DLSS), a technology that applies deep learning and AI to rendering techniques, will look better than ever.

This Graphics card has its all-new turing architecture which eventually defeats its popular predecessor GTX 1080.

The 2070 starts at $499, while the 2080 starts at $699, while the 2080 Ti starts at $999.

The GeForce RTX platform moreover overlays enhanced virtual reality (VR) possibilities to feel a new level of realism with wonderful detailing. As is usual for NVIDIA, numerous GPUs on the market carrying the GeForce RTX name won't be manufactured by NVIDIA themselves, but instead produced by partner firms. It's a fascinating new direction for NVIDIA that has apparently been 10 years in the making. Shadow of the Tomb Raider launches on September 14th on Windows, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, with only the former receiving ray tracing support - and then only when paired with a GeForce RTX card.

But you may have noticed that Nvidia is using RTX rather than the GTX prefix. The "Project Sol" demo that was made by Nvidia itself used a Quadro RTX 6000 GPU.

A large part of the reveal involved discussion of new technologies and interfaces, including DLSS, which enables a new form of anti-aliasing that's more accurate than temporal anti-aliasing. 'The Nvidia Ray Tracing technology now being shown in Shadow of the Tomb Raider is an early work in progress version, ' the game's official Twitter account has announced.
