NVIDIA has just announced its latest flagship GPU card the RTX 2080 Ti. Presented at this year’s Gamescom, the RTX 2080 Ti is at the top of the pack in the new GeForce RTX 2000 series of cards. Although the card shares similarities to the GTX 1080 Ti, like 11GB of RAM and a 352-bit memory bus, it’s the upgraded 4,352 CUDA cores and use of GDDR6 memory that’s going to be giving you higher frame rates when rendering rich 4K graphics.
On top of this announcement, Dell jumped in to reveal that its performance-driven line of Alienware desktops (the Aurora and the Area 51) will both be fitted with NVIDIA’s new line of GeForce RTX cards. The only downside to this announcement of the GeForce 2000 series is the new price tag — with the RTX 2080 Ti, RTX 2080 and RTX 2070 coming in at $1199 USD, $799 USD and $599 USD, respectively. Those looking to upgrade their GPUs can pre-order now over at NVIDIA’s web store, with an estimated shipping date of September 20, 2018.
