NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080: What We Know So Far
Everything we know about NVIDIA's next-generation GeForce GTX 1180, GTX 2080, RTX 1180, RTX 2080 - or whatever it will be called

The Latest

 

August 20 update: NVIDIA's purported GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition teased with a dual-fan cooler.

 

August 19 update: So, I've just flown over to Berlin (a 36-hour journey that I still have hours of layover here in Berlin and then the flight to Cologne) and lots has happened. We've seen leaks of virtually all AIB partner cards so far, here's the list:

 

GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 2080/2080 Ti WindForce/Gaming

MSI GeForce RTX 2080 Ti GAMING X TRIO

MSI GeForce RTX 2080 Ti/GTX 2080 DUKE

Palit GeForce RTX 2080 Ti/GTX 2080 GamingPro

EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 XC Ultra

ZOTAC GeForce RTX 2080 Ti/GTX 2080 AMP!

ASUS ROG STRIX GeForce RTX 2080 Ti (DUAL & TURBO variants, too)

 

August 17 update #2: We now know that the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti will feature a whopping 4352 CUDA cores based on the Turing GPU architecture. It seems GDDR6 will be clocked at 14Gbps, with 616GB/sec of memory bandwidth on offer (blowing away HBM2 on the Vega 64).

 

August 17 update: So it seems NVIDIA will indeed be launching the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti alongside the new RTX 2070 and RTX 2080, with our first look at a custom RTX 2080 Ti in the form of the MSI GeForce RTX 2080 Ti GAMING X TRIO graphics card.

The big note here is that it features NVLink, something I talk about in this article in detail. It seems I could be right, with SLI gone on the Turing-based offerings in both Quadro and GeForce RTX form. This could open the doors to 22GB of GDDR6 in NVLink on the RTX 2080 Ti... so my hype meter just went to 11/10.

 

This is where I'll keep all of the updates to the article, and bleeding edge information. There's new info and leaks happening constantly right now, so expect it to be updated and changed at a quick pace.

 

Remember: We are giving away not one, but two next-gen GeForce RTX 2080 graphics cards the second they launch. If you haven't already entered, you should really do it as it's not hard to be in the world's first giveaway of NVIDIA's next-gen graphics cards. You can do that here.

 

 

What We Know So Far

 

In just a few weeks time the world expects NVIDIA to launch its next generation GeForce graphics cards and to say that there is a hype train right now would be an understatement. I'm confident in saying this is the most anticipated graphics card launch of all time, and now we're an inch closer to that launch with NVIDIA unveiling the next-gen Turing GPU architecture at SIGGRAPH 2018.

Just as their SIGGRAPH 2018 press conference kicked off, NVIDIA began the next-gen GeForce hype train with a new video. We pulled apart the video right here, with multiple teases of it being the GeForce RTX 2080. NVIDIA could be trolling us all - which would be even better, and then unveiling it as the GeForce GTX 1180. At this point I don't think they'd do that, as it's very clear 'RTX' and '2080' are being shown in the video.

 

 

We will be updating this page as the new rumors and announcements happen, so keep coming back here. While you're here, we are giving away not one but two of NVIDIA's next-gen graphics cards no matter what they are. If they end up as the GTX 1180 or RTX 2080 they will be given away.
