After weeks of leaks and the past few days, dozens of products shot we not finally have all the info we need about the GeForce RTX 2080 and 2070 following the product announcement this evening
The RTX 2080 Ti will offer users 11GB of 14Gbps GDDR6 VRAM, 4352 CUDA cores, and support for Real-Time Ray Tracing.
The RTX 208 has 8GB of GDDR6 VRAM and 2944 CUDA cored
The RTX moniker signals the card’s ray tracing capabilities and also shows off artificial intelligence and programmable shading. Huang began the GeForce announcement by describing ray tracing and how light, shadow and reflection are the “holy grail” of graphics. Nvidia's RTX technology combines rasterization and ray tracing to render images.
The cards will be compatible with NVLink Bridge, which connects two SLI-compatible cards with 50 times the bandwidth of Nvidia's older SLI technologies. It comes in 3 or 4-slot options.
All the cards bump the power required moderately from the previous generation, with the Ti Founders Edition using 260W

Nvidia's pricing for the RTX 2080 Ti will be priced at $1,199.00/£1099.00, the RTX 1080 will be priced at $799.00/£749.00, and the RTX 2070 will be priced at $599.00/£569.00.
Nvidia's next-generation graphics cards will ship in September, stating with the RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti
In conjunction with the announcement INNO3D has revealed their liquid cooled Geforce RTX2080 Ti, which will feature the company's custom iCHILL Black cooling solution, which covers the GPU's core, memory and power circuitry to deliver low operating temperatures.
This cooling solution can cool the iCHILL Black down to 62 degrees Celsius under load, thanks to the GPU's use of a large 240mm radiator and the unit's “silent” 120mm fans.
