ASUS ROG STRIX GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, RTX 2080 cards shown off

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Video Cards | Posted: 2 hours, 49 mins ago

We've already had our geek meters blown up over all of the other AIB partners' custom GeForce RTX series graphics cards, and now it's time for ASUS to shine.

VideoCardz is behind this leak (and every single other one) with our first look at the ROG STRIX GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and ROG STRIX GeForce RTX 2080 cards smiling for the camera. We also get a look at the upcoming DUAL and TURBO RTX series, with a blower fan cooling down the next-gen Turing GPU architecture and GDDR6 memory.

 

asus-rog-strix-geforce-rtx-2080-ti-cards-shown_02

 

First up, we have the ASUS ROG STRIX GeForce RTX 2080 Ti with a triple-fan cooler and what seems like a 2.5-slot design. The RTX 2080 version of the card looks identical, except it has cut down specs compared to the RTX 2080 Ti.

The DUAL GeForce RTX 2080 features a dual-slot cooler, and I'm sure a lower overclock (if any at all).

Fox to adapt Vampyr into TV series

By: Derek Strickland | More News: Gaming | Posted: 9 hours, 49 mins ago

Cable network FOX is making a live action television series based on the excellent Vampyr game, proving the stars do align sometimes.

 

fox-adapt-vampyr-tv-series_1

 

When I first learned about Vampyr's premise--that of a vampire doctor who can either heal or feed on those around him, or both--I thought one thing quite clearly: it's an absolute perfect fit for a TV or movie adaptation. The game's story is winding and clever, its early 1900's London grim and dark, and its themes macabre but also unique (I love the idea of a vampire doctor who keeps denizens alive like cattle just so he can feed on them in the future). In my Vampyr review I noted that the game's themes are darkly enchanting and Dr. Acula's arc of development is bloody good...and even noticed some interesting parallels to other shows like Tales From the Crypt.

 

Other than FOX securing the rights, not much is known about Vampyr's TV series right now. We have no clue who will play Dr. Jonathan Reid (aka Dr. Acula) but we do know that Wonderland Sound and Vision will produce effects and work alongside DJ2 Entertainment to create the show. No release date or window was given and it could take some time to flesh out Dontnod's grim and foggy world, but I for one can't wait to see what FOX and company cook up.

ZOTAC's new GeForce RTX 2080/2080 Ti AMP! smile for photos

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Video Cards | Posted: 1 day ago

There's not many AIB partners that haven't seen their next-gen Turing-based RTX 20 series cards leaked yet, with the new ZOTAC GeForce RTX 2080/2080 Ti graphics cards smiling for the camera.

 

zotacs-new-geforce-rtx-2080-ti-amp-smile-photos_06

 

ZOTAC is pushing its triple-fan cooling solution for the GeForce RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti graphics cards, with the AMP! series teased here.

 

zotacs-new-geforce-rtx-2080-ti-amp-smile-photos_07

 

zotacs-new-geforce-rtx-2080-ti-amp-smile-photos_08

 

The ZOTAC GeForce RTX 2080 AMP! features a 6+8-pin PCIe power connector, while the RTX 2080 Ti AMP! sports dual 8-pin PCIe power connectors.

 

There's no RGBs here, but we do have an EXTREMELY long card and a huge backplate that has a viewing hole for the TU104 GPU underneath. Neat.

The next-gen Turing graphics card leaks continue, with EVGA all but confirmed to launch a new series of graphics cards in their upcoming "XC Ultra" brand.

 

evgas-new-geforce-rtx-2080-xc-ultra-unveiled_04

 

VideoCardz has leaked out the EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 XC Ultra, which features a TU104 Turing GPU, 2944 CUDA cores, and 8GB of GDDR6 on a 256-bit memory bus. We should expect it to also feature NVLink technology and the new VirtualLink connector for next-gen VR headsets.

Palit's new GeForce RTX 2080/2080 Ti GamingPro pictured

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Video Cards | Posted: 1 day, 10 hours ago

We've seen MSI's upcoming GeForce RTX 2080 Ti GAMING X TRIO as well as the upcoming MSI GeForce RTX 2080/2080 Ti DUKE... and now it's time for Palit.

 

palits-new-geforce-rtx-2080-ti-gamingpro-pictured_09

 

Palit will reportedly, according to the leak from VideoCardz, be offering their new series in the form of the GamingPro and GamingPro OC. Both cards will use custom PCBs and cooling solutions, with a dual-fan cooler on both models.

 

palits-new-geforce-rtx-2080-ti-gamingpro-pictured_10

 

Both of the Palit offerings in the GeForce RTX 2080 and GeForce RTX 2080 Ti will have factory overclocks applied (clock speeds unknown right now), with 8GB of GDDR6 on the RTX 2080 and 11GB of GDDR6 on the GTX 2080 Ti.

 

Both cards will feature NVLink and VirtualLink connectors.

MSI's new GeForce RTX 2080/2080 Ti DUKE leaked

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Video Cards | Posted: 1 day, 10 hours ago

I'm literally sitting at the airport here in Adelaide, South Australia writing all of this news about the new flow of leaks on NVIDIA's new GeForce RTX 20 series and it isn't stopping. Germany, here I come!

 

msis-new-geforce-rtx-2080-ti-duke-leaked_07

 

Before I went to bed last night I wrote up about MSI's new GeForce RTX 2080 Ti GAMING X TRIO graphics card, something VideoCardz leaked to the world and now they're back with a leak on MSI's other RTX 20 series card.

 

msis-new-geforce-rtx-2080-ti-duke-leaked_06

 

We now have our first look at the MSI GeForce RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti DUKE graphics cards, which are similar - but not identical to the GAMING X TRIO variant.

 

msis-new-geforce-rtx-2080-ti-duke-leaked_08

 

We can see that MSI is using an RGB LED bar on the DUKE cards, something that wasn't there with the last-gen offerings. There's also a full-cover backplate which is a nice touch as some of these cards get extremely hot on the back.

NVIDIA's next-gen GeForce RTX 2080 Ti has 4352 CUDA cores

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Video Cards | Posted: 1 day, 11 hours ago

The leaks continue from NVIDIA's next-gen RTX 20 series graphics line up, with more details on the flagship GeForce RTX 2080 Ti appearing online courtesy of VideoCardz.

 

nvidias-next-gen-geforce-rtx-2080-ti-4352-cuda-cores_04

 

The site reports that the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti will have a huge 4352 CUDA cores, with 11GB of next-gen GDDR6 memory on a 352-bit memory bus. The GDDR6 will be clocked at 14Gbps giving the RTX 2080 Ti a massive 616GB/sec of memory bandwidth.

 

If we compare the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti against the just-announced Quadro RTX 6000 we'll see it doesn't fall far behind. NVIDIA's new Turing-based Quadro RTX packs 4608 CUDA cores, 24GB of GDDR6, a 384-bit memory bus and memory bandwidth that hits 672GB/sec.

MSI's new GeForce RTX 2080 Ti GAMING X TRIO teased

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Video Cards | Posted: 1 day, 21 hours ago

It looks like NVIDIA will be unveiling the higher-end GeForce RTX 2080 Ti next week, and not just the expected GeForce RTX 2070 and RTX 2080 graphics cards. VideoCardz is now showing off some photos of MSI's first custom RTX 2080 Ti graphics card.

 

msis-new-geforce-rtx-2080-ti-gaming-trio-teased_01

 

MSI's new GeForce RTX 2080 Ti GAMING X TRIO graphics card is similar to the current GTX 1080 Ti GAMING X TRIO, but the new card features a few fairly large changes, apart from the new Turing GPU and GDDR6 memory. The new RTX 2080 Ti GAMING X TRIO has a VirtualLink connector, the new USB-C port for next-gen VR headsets but it is the loss of SLI and gain of NVLink which has me happy.

 

msis-new-geforce-rtx-2080-ti-gaming-trio-teased_02

 

I only just wrote about NVIDIA ditching the SLI connector in favor of NVLink, which could see VRAM doubling instead of being wasted on the other card. This would mean that two RTX 2080 Ti graphics cards in NVLink would have a truly insane 22GB of GDDR6 at its disposal.

 

msis-new-geforce-rtx-2080-ti-gaming-trio-teased_03

 

MSI's upcoming custom RTX 2080 Ti GAMING X TRIO features a triple-fan cooler with RGBs that aren't over the top, with the card powered by 8+8-pin PCIe power connectors.
