Although Nvidia officially announced its Turing family of graphics cards earlier this week, Team Green is only now sharing how the performance of the Nvidia RTX 2080 compares to the Nvidia GTX 1080In some newly released presentation slides, Nvidia claims the Nvidia RTX 2080 hovers around being 1.5 times more performant than the last-generation Nvidia GTX 1080 in a multitude of games, including Epic Infiltrator, Wolfenstein II and Shadow of War (HDR).Furthermore, if users activate a new Nvidia Turing feature known as Deep Learning Super-Sampling (DLSS), they can expect up to two-times better performance in titles such as Final Fantasy XV (HDR), Ark: Survival Evolved and JX3, according to Nvidia.Nvidia hasn’t disclosed all of the intricate details behind DLSS, but what we can tell you is that the process involves having Turing’s Tensor Cores “perform lightning-fast deep neural network processing” to apply “deep learning and AI to rendering techniques, … [Read more...] about The Nvidia RTX 2080 is officially twice as powerful as the Nvidia GTX 1080

While Nvidia just released its RTX 20 series of graphics cards, all but trouncing AMD’s latest and most powerful cards, it may have another challenger to consider before this series is through: Intel. The firm recently teased its launch of discrete graphics cards for 2020.This will mark the first time in more than 20 years that Nvidia will have competition other than AMD in the graphics card market. However, judging by where Intel’s best integrated graphics – graphics cores embedded into the CPU platform – are right now, the company has quite a bit of catching up to do, especially if it plans to expand upon its current GPU to power these.So, let’s put into perspective just how far Intel needs to come from its integrated graphics platform to meet or exceed what Nvidia’s best is capable of – on paper. For this theoretical (and highly speculative) experiment, assuming Intel builds upon its existing technology, we’re looking at three key … [Read more...] about To beat Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, here’s how much Intel’s GPU needs to improve
Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti is a whopper of a graphics card that’s finally able to push 60fps 4K gaming with a single GPU. But, more impressively, it also features ray tracing and AI-driven Tensor cores to push a new revolution in computer graphics. That said, the price of admission into this new elite world of graphics is incredibly high.Price and availabilityThe Founders Edition version of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti rings up for an almost obscene $1,199 (£1,099, AU$1,899). Although Nvidia has said you’ll also be able to find this GPU at a starting price of $999 or £1,049 (about AU$1,390), that’s still significantly more expensive than the $699 (£669, AU$1,129) price we’re used to seeing on the Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti.Spec sheetCUDA cores: 4,352Base clock: 1,350MHzBoost clock: 1,635MHz (OC)Video memory: 11GB GDDR6Memory speed: 14GbpsForm factor: Dual-slotPower connectors: 2 x 8-pinPorts: 3 x DisplayPort 1.4, 1 x HDMI 2.0, 1 x … [Read more...] about Hands on: Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti review
The Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 is finally a real, tangible GPU and with six times the power of Pascal-based GTX GPUs, it's a beast. But how does Nvidia’s best graphics card ever stack up to its eternal rival, AMD, with its Radeon RX Vega 64?Well, it’s never going to be apples-to-apples comparisons when it comes to products from different companies. However, since they both aim to generate incredible visuals for your favorite PC games, we’ll pit them against each other on paper before taking them into the lab later this year.That being said, from their design, to their projected performance, to how much that performance will cost you, let’s look at which graphics option for you is better: the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 versus the AMD Radeon RX Vega 64.DesignRight off the bat, the designs of these two graphics card are drastically different: The AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 uses a traditional, air-based cooling mechanism with a single fan drawing cool air in and driving it out … [Read more...] about Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 vs AMD Radeon RX Vega 64: which ultimate graphics card is best for you?
