Gigabyte is the first brand to tease officially AORUS GeForce RTX 2080. The teaser gives away a beefier graphics card with RGB colorful lights in triple fan design. Check out the official teaser below.
GeForce RTX 2080 will feature 2944 CUDA Cores with a base clock of 1515 MHz and boost clock of 1710 MHz. GeForce RTX 2080 have 8GB GDDR6 memory size and a 256-bit bus size. The gpu will require 215 Watts thermal design power (TDP). Gigabyte AORUS has not mentioned any further information on price and availability of the graphics card.
The teaser #GoBeyond showcases a single AORUS GeForce RTX 2080 graphics card but it is likely that we may see AORUS GeForce RTX 2080Ti at later stage.
GeForce RTX 2080Ti will come with 4352 CUDA Cores. The Ti variant will come with base clock of 1350 MHz and boost clock of 1545 MHz. GeForce RTX 2080Ti will be top tier in RTX lineup and it will come with 11GB GDDR6 memory size and a 352-bit bus size. To power up the gpu, 250 Watts thermal design power (TDP) will be required.
Nvidia at Gamescom showcased few games which will support real-time ray tracing. Battlefield V, Shadow of Tomb Raider and Control were few games in which real-time ray tracing feature was showcased. Ray-Tracing is RTX exclusive feature that will only come in Turing Architecture GPUs. 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 reveal of RTX graphics card SIGGRAPH event, Nvidia CEO praised the features that will debut in RTX series and 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.
