Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Is Finally Here

After months and months of waiting, it’s finally here. The Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 has been announced at Gamescom 2018, and it promises a huge jump in performance over the previous generation. However, is that jump in performance worth the price to upgrade? 

Well, let’s figure this out, together.

The RTX 2080 rocks 2,944 CUDA cores, 8GB of GDDR6 VRAM, which is a huge jump over the GTX 1080’s 2560 CUDA cores, 8GB of GDDR5 VRAM. Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang insisted that this will mean a monumental increase over 2016’s model.

So, for anyone who is currently rocking a GTX 1080 in their build, the value is a bit dubious – unless you absolutely need the best performance available, and we couldn’t blame you for that. The true value, though, is going to be for anyone who skipped the 10-series and is still rocking either a GTX 970 or 980 (or even older). If you’re looking for a way to break into 4K gaming, now’s the time to take the high-resolution dive.


The new GeForce cards are, well, costly – it can't be denied. The Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti will set you back $1,199 (£1,099, AU$1,899). That is a considerable measure of cash to spend on a card, yet that is not what we would suggest for the vast majority. 

The RTX 2070 and 2080 will be the sweet spot for the vast majority, costing $599 (£569, AU$899) and $799 (£749, AU$1,199), individually. These cards will hypothetically have the capacity to deal with 4K/60FPS gaming gracefully, as they're specced higher than the GTX 1080 Ti at a lower value point. 

This means 4K gaming is totally moderate out of the blue, and when reseller's exchange plans begin taking off in the coming months, it will turn out to be significantly more achievable for more individuals.

4K or not ?

For years, 1080p has been the de facto resolution for most gamers – with a small segment preferring 1,440p displays – and Nvidia Turing might just mark the beginning of the end for that era. Even the RTX 2070 should be able to max out most current games at 4K and still get a silky smooth framerate. But, what if you’re good with sticking with a lower resolution?

Monitors are expensive – especially high-resolution ones, so it can get pretty expensive to upgrade all of your equipment to a higher resolution. These Turing cards, then, might not be worth the investment, as the GTX 10-series will be able to handle 1080p, and even 1,440p, gaming for a while.

However, if you already have the equipment, or you’re willing to make the jump, the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 is going to make a world of difference.

By the day's end, everything comes down to what you need to do with your tech. It's improbable that beam following, the feature highlight of the new cards, will be an immense piece of the diversions that turn out for whatever remains of 2018 and presumably the vast majority of 2019. In any case, the RTX 2080 and whatever remains of the Turing family will be a hugely vital change over current-age designs cards and could proclaim an upset for PC gaming. 

Be that as it may, it's too soon to tell. 

At this moment, our recommendation is to investigate your present gear, your financial plan and what you need to do with your PC. In case you're simply going to play lightweight diversions at 1080p, or in the event that you as of now have a GTX 1080, it's presumably not going to be justified regardless of the overhaul comfortable minute. 

Notwithstanding, in the event that you've been perched on a Maxwell (or more seasoned) GPU, sticking around for your chance and holding up to overhaul, it's difficult to think about a superior time to make the hop. Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang made an enormous arrangement about the RTX 2080 Ti being 10 times more intense than the GTX 1080 Ti – envision the amount more ground-breaking it is than a GTX 980 or 970.
