Nvidia RTX 2080Ti release date has been delayed by a week

Just days before it was meant to go on sale, Nvidia have confirmed that the launch date of their Turing RTX 2080Ti graphics card has been pushed back by a week until Thursday September 27. It's currently unclear whether the delay is due to a shortage of cards, Nvidia wanting to give the Ti's little brother, the RTX 2080, a little bit of breathing room…

Feature: There's a lot more to Nvidia's Turing GPU than just ray-tracing

Nvidia RTX 2080 and RTX 2080Ti: Turing’s best features explained

After all the rush and excitement of Nvidia's Turing launch at Gamescom, there's now less than a week to go before those shiny new GeForce RTX graphics cards are out in the wild. On September 20 and 27, both the RTX 2080 and RTX 2080Ti will replace the GTX 1080 and GTX 1080Ti as Nvidia's top dog bestest best graphics cards - and the great…

Metro Exodus dev talks Nvidia RTX: How ray tracing will speed up development and make life harder for monsters

Nvidia's new Turing RTX 2080 graphics cards have been the talk of this year's Gamescom for hardware nuts, and with good reason. While their jump in raw performance is still a little vague, the new techie bits they're ushering in such as Nvidia's fancy ray tracing light gubbins (which makes shadows and reflections look extra pretty and realistic) and their clever, speed-boosting deep learning super…

Feature: Frame of mind

Nvidia RTX 2080 will deliver 2x performance of the GTX 1080, with a catch

In a move that really should have happened on Monday, Nvidia have finally released some figures regarding how much better their new Turing RTX 2080 card is compared to their current big frame hitter, the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080. Some, meaning a handful of very specific numbers for only a select number of games, at 4K, 60Hz, with no mention of graphics quality. Still! Numbers!…

Metro Exodus targeting 60fps 1080p for new Nvidia RTX features

Ever since Nvidia officially unveiled their Turing RTX 2080 cards on Monday, we've heard nothing but 'ray tracing this' and 'Giga Rays that' - so much so that I can probably now recite 3573 things about their fancy pants lighting equations off by heart. What I can't say 3753 things about is their frame rate performance, mostly because Nvidia have only revealed a small handful…

Here’s a list of every game that’s going to look amazing on the Nvidia RTX 2080 and 2080Ti

Good gravy, don't Nvidia's Turing RTX 2080 cards look nice, eh? Yes, they're just a teensy bit hideously expensive, but make no mistake. All three cards announced this evening, from the RTX 2070 right up to the RTX 2080Ti, have all been described to me as 4K, 60fps+ pixel pushers that are almost certainly going to be massive overkill for anyone still playing games at…

Nvidia’s first Turing GPUs will be professional Quadro RTX cards

Well, would you look at that? Nvidia have just lifted the lid on their brand-new Turing graphics cards - and ghee whiz do they look powerful. Don't get too excited just yet, though, as the only cards Nvidia announced last night at computer graphics and animation conference Siggraph are (yep, you guessed it) all professional Quadro RTX models: the Quadro RTX 8000, Quadro RTX 6000…

Nvidia are definitely up to something at Gamescom

Nvidia have confirmed that something is definitely going down at this year's Gamescom. We don't know what yet - it could finally be the proper reveal of the company's next-gen Nvidia Turing graphics cards, for instance, or maybe a deep dive into their upcoming Nvidia BFGD (Big Format Gaming Displays), or something else entirely. We just don't know. What we do know, though, is that…

Nvidia: Next GeForce graphics card won’t arrive for “a long time”

Do my ears deceive me? Did Nvidia's CEO Jensen Huang just say it will be "a long time" until the next GeForce GPU release at this year's Computex show in Taiwan? What about all those Nvidia Turing rumours about a new Founders Edition card being available next month and a supposed proper reveal scheduled for August? I'm going to need some time to process this - perhaps with the help…

Nvidia Turing graphics cards reveal set for August

After months of speculation and a will-they-won't-they game of leaked and delayed release dates, Nvidia look set to finally reveal all about their upcoming Turing graphics cards and the GTX 1180 this August. There's a chance we may hear about them formally beforehand, of course, especially if the current rumours about a GTX 1180 Founders Edition appearing next month are to be believed, but whatever happens, the…

Are graphics card prices finally starting to come down? GTX 1080s haven’t been this cheap since Black Friday

Is it... is it nearly over? Has the time finally come when I can stand firm, brandish my credit card and... buy a new graphics card? After what seems like months, nay, years of over-exaggerated price inflation due to all of today's best graphics cards being like sweet, sweet honey to would-be cryptocurrency mining bandwagoners, graphics card prices might actually be starting to drop - and about time, too.…

Nvidia’s Turing graphics cards apparently delayed AGAIN

Normally, delays are considered a Bad Thing, but as the great graphics card price crisis rumbles on, it's not like any of us actually have any money to upgrade our PCs anyway, so the later, the better, really, when it comes to hardware. Indeed, the latest gossip appears to suggest that Nvidia's Turing graphics cards won't be here until the autumn now, after previously being tipped for a reveal at…

Maybe Nvidia won’t be releasing their new Ampere/Turing graphics cards at GTC 2018 after all

Earlier this week, the hot goss on the graphics card grapevine was that Nvidia was going to launch its new, next-gen line-up of GeForce GTX graphics cards at this year's GTC 2018 conference later this month. Dubbed Nvidia Turing, these cards would replace Nvidia's current range of 10-series cards, such as the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 etc, with a brand-new, potential 20-series or maybe…
