We didn’t know about the real details about another massive graphics card from Nvidia. The company’s next graphics card will be Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080. The card is released after so long time of last product. That last architecture was Pascal, and it has powered everything from the top-tier GTX 1080 and GTX 1080 Ti to the entry-level GTX 1050 and GT 1030.
GeForce RTX 2080 Specifications
The card is so powerful that it can handle a large number of threats. Moving along, Turing will use GDDR6 memory. Based on the Quadro RTX models, there are two chip designs, one with a 384-bit interface and 24GB/48GB of GDDR6, and the other with a 256-bit interface and 16GB GDDR6. Nvidia is avoiding the use of HBM2, due to costs and other factors, and GDDR6 delivers higher performance than GDDR5X. While GDDR6 officially has a target speed of 14-16 GT/s, and Micron has demonstrated 18 GT/s modules, the first Turing cards appear to go with the bottom of that range and will run at 14 GT/s.
Nvidia might be revamping the entire product stack to turn the RTX 2080 into a $1,000 GPU, or it might hold off on such a high-end part. Given the various component costs, Can’t imagine that a 24GB GeForce RTX 2080 (or RTX 2080 Ti) costing less than $1,000, and $1,500 isn’t out of the question. Nvidia calls this the biggest jump in architecture in more than a decade since it released the first GPUs with CUDA cores. A big jump in features often means a similar jump in pricing.
Nvidia spilled the beans on many aspects of the Turing architecture at SIGGRAPH, indicating the launch of GeForce models is imminent. Nvidia has also planned a GeForce gaming celebration for August 20 at Gamescom.
