You've seen the leaks, but today at Gamescom NVIDIA officially announced its new line of RTX video cards. And, thanks to the company's new Turing hardware, they're just as crazy powerful as you'd expect. The top of the line is the RTX 2080 Ti, which packs in 4,352 CUDA cores, just a bit less than the Quadro RTX 6,000's 4,608 cores. And while it has the same 11GB of RAM and 352-bit memory bus as the GTX 1080 Ti, the new model uses GDDR6 memory, allowing for higher memory bandwidth of 616 Gbps. That's a lot of specs to swallow, but it all basically means this is NVIDIA's fastest consumer GPU by far.
The RTX 2080 Ti is available for pre-order today for a whopping $1,199, and it will ship on September 20th. But you can save a bit by going for the $999 standard edition when that's available. There are the other 20-series cards to consider, like the $799 RTX 2080 and $599 RTX 2070 Founders Editions. The standard versions of those cards will run for $699 and $499, respectively, but you'll have to wait a bit to grab those.
