Yesterday, NVIDIA launched its new GeForce RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti video cards. These new cards take full advantage of ray tracing technology to bring even more life to games, just it'll take some time before games are able to utilize it and the other new tech in the cards. It's certainly something to prepare you for the future, as these cards should be able to handle whatever you throw at it with ease, even at 4K resolutions. These cards are not cheap, however, as the RTX 2080 arrives in the $800 range and the 2080 Ti in the $1,200 range for the Founders Editions. There should be slightly more affordable versions from NVIDIA's partners, but just know that it's a big investment regardless. Now, time to see what these cards can do, so hit up the links below!

Well I can't afford to buy a new GPU, we have reached over the thousand $ mark here.

Welcome back Black64,.. I feel the same way about crazy high prices on hardware nowadays.


It's unlikely I'll be able to take advantage of Ray Tracing,.. perhaps DLSS will become widely supported and be amazing.  :)
