The Complete Article
NVIDIA has unveiled the new GeForce RTX line up and they are claiming huge performance boost than the previous generation. Today at Gamescom 2018, NVIDIA has officially announced the new generation of their consumer graphics cards. The new Turing architecture based GPUs include the GeForce RTX 2070, RTX 2080 and the RTX 2080 Ti.
The all-new GeForce RTX 2000 Series
Although the graphics cards are not cheap at all but NVIDIA is promising up to 6 times the performance than the previous generation Pascal GPUs. With the new graphics cards, NVIDIA is focusing heavily on ray tracing. As per them, the new gen graphics cards are as much as times better than the Pascal-based GPUs.
Furthermore, the Turning architecture offers new Tensor cores that are capable of deep learning applications. At the stage, NVIDIA discussed the DLSS algorithm, which can boost a game running at 1080p to get near 4K quality without any performance drops.
The Ray Tracing technology is also one of the biggest highlights of these cards. Ray Tracing is nothing other than a rendering technology that allows the games to look a lot more like movies. With Ray Tracing enabled, one can expect real-time light reflections and cinematic effects which results in an amazing gameplay experience.
