Tulipmania over, perhaps
It won't come as a surprise to regular Fudzilla readers, but market research figures have confirmed mixed fortiunes for the big three GPU vendors in their second quarter sales.
It is especially confident about its new chips
Nvidia is so confident about its RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti cards it is leaning on magazines to find out who will be review them and insisting on five year NDAs.
Spotted in graphics options menu
CD Projekt Red raised a lot of attention with its latest gameplay demo video, showing some impressive graphics and gameplay, but judging from the alleged leak, it appears it will also support Nvidia Hairworks and Ray Tracing when it launches.
Lack of competition dictates
Lack of competition is what allows Nvidia to price products however high it wants to and even lets its AIB partners go a little bit crazier with their custom cards. RTX is definitely a step forward in computer graphics but it will take time for RayTracing to become really necessary and get down to reasonably priced markets.
Battlefield V, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and more
Preparing for the availability of its first Geforce RTX 20-series graphics cards, Nvidia has also released all the gaming trailers and demos that use some of the RTX technologies, like the Ray Tracing.
Brings 4K HDR 60Hz on a single card
Nvidia has decided to share some of the details regarding the performance of its upcoming Geforce RTX 20-series, specifically for the Geforce RTX 2080, which should roughly end up around 1.5x to 2x faster than the previous generation.
Some games will only get DLSS
Following the previous announcement of the new Geforce RTX series, Nvidia has now disclosed a few more details about which games will actually adopt Ray Tracing and which will focus on Deep Learning Super-Sampling.
On retail/e-tail shelves on September 20th
During his keynote ahead of the Gamescom 2018 show, Nvidia's CEO Jensen Huang officially unveiled the new Geforce RTX series, which is already available for pre-order and which will be on shelves on September 20th.
AMD cannot challenge this
It will be extremely hard and almost impossible for AMD to stay relevant in performance and high end gaming. With the introduction of Geforce Turing based 20 series RTX cards, Nvidia is putting in place a hard to reach distance between AMD Radeon graphics and Geforce. When we say Nvidia will rule high end in 2019, we of course mean the rest of 2018 too.
#BeForTheGame will be streamed live on Twitch
As you already know, Nvidia will be holding the big Geforce Gaming Celebration event ahead of Gamescom 2018 in Cologne, Germany, and it will be streamed live on Twitch.
