Gamescom is underway and what better way to kick off proceedings than to announce the next generation of NVIDIA Graphics Cards? Well, it’s to announce they’re available to pre-order too.
PNY Technologies announced that they are taking immediate pre-orders of the new NVIDIA GPUs which were unveiled during the ‘GeForce Gaming Celebration’. The two-day event kicked off this evening and will give gamers a chance to go hands-on with a bunch of new games including Battlefield V, Metro Exodus and Shadow of the Tomb Raider. If you’re over in Cologne for the week, be sure to head over to Hall 10.1, Booth E-072.
If you aren’t, then fret not, as you can find out all about the new cards below alongside pre-order info should you want to grab one, or two, of these beasts.
The new GPUs certainly talk the talk and walk the walk. They’re touted as the ‘ultimate gaming experience’ powered by NVIDIA Turing GPU architecture and the new NVIDIA RTX platform. What does this mean to us mere mortals?
“…the new graphics cards bring together real-time ray tracing, artificial intelligence, and programmable shading”
The new GPUs come in a variety of flavours:
PNY® GeForce® RTX 2080 Ti XLR8 Gaming Overclocked Edition
Said to be modelled after a stealth jet, the 3-fan aluminium cooled GPU includes high-speed GDDR6 memory which ‘pushes gaming into a whole other stratosphere’.
PNY GeForce® RTX 2080 and PNY GeForce® RTX 2070 XLR8 Gaming Overclocked Edition Triple Fan
The 2080 is a slightly smaller card but still packs a punch with high-speed GDDR6 memory and support for real-time ray tracing.
PNY GeForce® RTX 2080 and PNY GeForce® RTX 2070 XLR8 Gaming Overclocked Edition Dual Fan
This smaller card has been overclocked to ensure that it plays the latest games with ease. This card, as with the others, has GDDR6 memory meaning it’s no small time fry when it comes to upgrading your PC.
PNY GeForce® RTX 2080 Dual Fan
The Dual Fan RTX 2080 is a much more subtle card but still supports real-time ray tracing with its GDDR6 memory.
PNY GeForce® RTX 2080 Ti Blower, PNY GeForce® RTX 2080 Blower and PNY GeForce® RTX 2070 Blower
The smallest of the new GPUs is engineered with reliability and stability in mind. The card is built around a radial fan which directs hot air out the rear of the card to limit any overheating.
The GPUs will be available today at participating retailers so keep your eyes peeled!
