Nvidia to unveil the new Turing-based GPU 'RTX 2080'

Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080

At the ongoing SIGGRAPH 2018 Keynote, Nvidia revealed their new Turing Architecture for GPUs. This will supposedly bring numerous new advances which incorporates GDDR6 Memory, Tensor Cores, Real-Time Ray Tracing, AI-improved Deep Learning Anti Aliasing known as DLAA and significantly more. Also, for the next-gen GeForce GPUs, we at long last appear to have a name - RTX 2080. 

The SIGGRAPH 2018 Keynote was engaged towards content designers, yet the presentation of the Turing Architecture gives us numerous new bits of knowledge about what new highlights and innovations would be actualized in the Turing-based RTX 2080 GPU. Let's find out more on the same.

A new teaser video by Nvidia named 'Be For The Game' was recently released- it starts with the unboxing of a Nvidia GPU, proceeding to showcase a bunch of high-end gaming rigs and gamers booting up their setups, inviting their friends to play. The teaser ends with hashtag #BeForTheGame and insights of Nvidia's next event, being held on August 20th 2018 in Cologne.

Why the name- RTX 2080?

A few insights are available in the video that affirm this name. The usernames of the gamers in various parts of the video were AlanaT Mac-20, Eight-Tee, Not11 and RoyTeX, and in the final section of the video, the dates additionally fly up such that the numbers 2, 0, 8 and 0 come up one by one. All these are indicating the way that the new top of the line GeForce GPU will be called RTX 2080 and will highlight the Turing Architecture. A fun teaser you have there, Nvidia. And so we have a name!

Nvidia reportedly registered GeForce RTX, Quadro RTX and TURING Trademarks recently, so it appears to be likely that they're abandoning the GTX Branding. It also appears the lower-end 2050 and 2060 GPUs will hold the GTX brand, and they won't utilize the Real-Time Ray Tracing innovation.

How The Quadro RTX Professional GPUs could be pertinent to the Turing-based GeForce RTX GPUs expected for Gaming- All the new innovations that accompany it

Quadro RTX GPUs are utilized as a part of intense graphical computing tasks, and they're basically utilized in film making, architectures and automobile designers, and for representation of scientific data. We can't be certain which technology will be used in the GeForce products of the Turing Architecture GPUs, yet the new Quadro RTX GPUs will utilize all these new features and advancements -

Vice President of Professional Visualization at NVIDIABob Pette said,
Quadro RTX marks the launch of a new era for the global computer graphics industry. Users can now enjoy powerful capabilities that weren’t expected to be available for at least five more years. Designers and artists can interact in real time with their complex designs and visual effects in ray-traced photo-realistic detail. And film studios and production houses can now realize increased throughput with their rendering workloads, leading to significant time and cost savings.

RTX 2080 better than Titan V?

Wccftech presented the leaked benchmark of Ashes of the Singularity. The leaked benchmark is utilizing the Core i7-6850K and a unidentified 'NVIDIA Graphics Device' on DirectX 12. The settings were pushed to the limit and the scores which we're seeing here are beating Titan V! These scores shouldn't be conceivable by any existing GPU and the graphics card seems to be Turing-based.

This benchmark, if done on the RTX 2080 or some other Turing GPU, utilized early drivers. The GPU was probably an early prototype as well. Considering these things the execution is still marvelous and I expect the final version with upgraded drivers and updates to run much better.

The new features and technologies utilized in the Turing engineering are hands-down astonishing. Nvidia's recent teaser video on YouTube and their subtle insights are surely hinting to something big happening, and I'm exceptionally eager to perceive what sort of performance improvements could be carried with the Turing Architecture for Gaming.
