Detailed Look

 

The premium look and feel of the new GeForce RTX Founders Edition cards is found not just on the card itself, but on the packaging from NVIDIA.

As you can see, the box has been changed up a bit where it matches the style of the new RTX Founders Edition. I really like the box, with it better matching the NVIDIA marketing overall.

What we've all come here to see: the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition.

The dual-fan cooler on the new RTX Founders Edition card is solid, and is a drastic change to the single-fan blower-style cooler of past FE cards.

The GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition requires dual 8-pin PCIe power connectors.

The backplate of the new RTX Founders Edition cards has been improved, and I really dig the new design. The backplates still get very hot during massive gaming or benchmark sessions. We can see the new NVLink multi-GPU connector, too.

The new RTX 2080/2080 Ti Founders Edition graphics cards both have 3 x DP 1.4, 1 x HDMI 2.0 and the new VirtualLink connector. VirtualLink is a new USB-C standard for next-gen VR headsets and uses up to 30W of the TDP on the card as everything is handled (the VR headset, sensors, USB ports, etc all rolled into a single USB-C).

The new NVLink multi-GPU connector on the RTX 20 series, SLI is now gone in favor of NVLink which has magnitudes more bandwidth.
