Gamescom 2018 has been given an awesome start from Nvidia by announcing their new high-end graphics cards, the GeForce RTX 2070, RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti. PC gaming has always been costly, but packing one of these into your build is likely only to be for those prepared to invest heavily in their machine.

And it all looks rather stunning in the demos shown on stage, though maybe less so in the post-show capture session pushing the new RTX 2080 Ti to its limits. A bridge link for the 2080 Ti or 2080 is $119 if you're lucky enough to be able to afford to of these bad boys.

But if you want more performance, then manual overclocking is also available and there's much you can gain by tuning the cards yourself.

NVIDIA HAS FINALLY taken the covers off its next-gen Turing GeForce graphics cards, which come promising the power to deliver ray-tracing rendering without costing the price of a small moon. After showing a trailer for Battlefield V, which supports the new technology, Huang announced that the game will go into open beta on Sep. 6. It's also capable of kicking out the aforementioned 10 Giga rays per second and 78 trillion RTX operations per second. Nvidia's G-Sync feature means titles running under the card will have tear-free gameplay, refresh rates of up to 240 Hz, HDR, and 4K. Take Battlefield 5, for instance - the technology in the RTX series cards allows for enhanced detail.

MeToo activist Asia Argento reportedly paid off her own sexual assault accuser
Neither Argento nor any of her representatives responded to requests for comment on the Times' story, it was reported. Since the New Yorker exposé, Weinstein has been charged in NY with six felony counts of sex assault , including rape.

It can also create accurate light reflections on glass, metal, and over the eyes of in-game human characters. DICE has done some magic with the Nvidia RTX / Microsoft DXR combo, and has real-time ray tracing making the entire gameworld just that little bit more alive. We'll revisit all of that in the coming days.

This staggered schedule isn't really something new but should give you an idea of how long to wait for.

All of this pieces are according to the website listing and the cards can be pre-ordered directly from NVIDIA over on the website.

The RTX 2070, 2080 and 2080 Ti will be starting at $499, $699 and $999, respectively. A Founders Edition of the card runs at a top speed of 1,800MHz, while the vanilla card hits 1,710MHz. But here's what we know so far.
