On side note, Nvidia GeForce RTX graphics card are getting release on September 20, 2018. Also we came to know the official date for reviews. The embargo is placed till September 16 for RTX 2080 and 2080Ti. However, we will get reviews on Turing Architecture early, on September 14, 2018.
Once the embargo is lifted, the reviewers will receive officially the RTX series graphic cards to analyze, benchmark and test. Basically, a total performance index will be revealed after the embargo. The reviews of AIB partners graphic cards along with founders edition will also be published on the same day.
It is worth noting that Nvidia mentioned real-time ray tracing feature exclusively for RTX series. This feature will be absent from previous generation of Pascal architecture based GTX 1000 series. In addition to that, only GeForce RTX 2070, RTX 2080 and RTX 2080Ti will support this feature. At this point it is unknown if any other RTX gpu (if shown in future) may support the feature or not.
Back at SIGGRAPH event, Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang praised the potential of real-time ray tracing. He further said:
Hybrid rendering will change the industry, opening up amazing possibilities that enhance our lives with more beautiful designs, richer entertainment and more interactive experiences. The arrival of real-time ray tracing is the Holy Grail of our industry.
