Today at the Nvidia keynote at Cologne, Germany, the technology company revealed its latest set of consumer GPU models, the Nvidia GeForce RTX 20 series.

There are three variations of this GeForce RTX. The first is the RTX 2070 which generates 6 Giga Rays each second, 45 trillion RTX-OPS, and 8 GB frame buffer. Finally, the RTX 2080 Ti boasts 10 Giga Rays per minute, 78 RTX-OPS, also 11 GB frame buffer.

The RTX 2070 will cost $499, the RTX 2080 will charge $699, along with the RTX 2080 Ti will cost $999. Preorders for the cards start now and will soon be on store shelves September 20, 2018.

At the keynote, the majority of the conversation was based around ray tracing technology. This tech enables the GPU to better simulate reflections and shadows producing a more photo-realistic image onscreen. Games such as Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Metro: Exodus, along with Battlefield V showcased how this tech is implemented by comparing a spectacle with RTX turned on and off.

Just last week in a Nvidia occasion in Siggraph 2018, the “planet ’s first ray tracing GPU” was revealed together with the Quadro RTX family of cards with the lowest being $2,300 and also the priciest in $10,000.
