Dual- or triple-fan cooler and RGB galore
Inno3D has released renderings of its upcoming custom cooling solution for Nvidia Geforce RTX-series graphics cards, the new iChill X3 edition cooler which will not only be covered in RGB strips but also allow a certain level of customization as well.
Brings support for Windows 10 October update and DXR
Nvidia has released its latest Geforce 416.16 WHQL graphics driver which brings support for Microsoft's latest Windows 10 October 2018 update with support for DirectX Raytracing (DXR).
The least expensive Turing around
Nvidia has now confirmed that the Geforce RTX 2070 will be shipping on October 17th, with the price starting at $499.
Game Ready and RTX Ready driver
Nvidia has released its newest Geforce 411.63 WHQL driver which is both the Game Ready driver for a couple of new games as well as an RTX Ready driver, bringing support for its latest RTX series graphics cards, which should be shipping to their first customers as of yesterday.
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.
