"Turing is NVIDIA's most important innovation in computer graphics in more than a decade", said Justin Walker, director of GeForce desktop at NVIDIA, in the release.

The webpage update, which went live a bit before the press conference, wrapped also promised to show off videos of "Shadow of the Tomb Raider", "Metro Exodus", and "Battlefield V" illustrating how the new lighting tech and cards would impact the games.

The new GPUs, based on an architecture codenamed Turing, merge conventional graphics rasterisation, real-time ray tracing, AI, and compute power for the first time. According to Huang, it would take 10 of Nvidia's previous-generation graphics card - the GTX 1080Ti - to keep up with Tensor.

Rumors from VideoCardz and AdoredTV suggest the former (possibly priced at $300 to $500) will be 40% faster than the 1070, carrying a total of 2304 CUDA cores and 8GB of GDDR6 memory. In terms of ray tracing power, they can push out 8 and 10 Gigarays per second respectively, or 60 trillion and 78 trillion RTX operations per second. The GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and GeForce RTX 2080 are expected to start shipping around September 20, 2018. The RTX 2070 will only cost $599, however it's now not available for pre-order just yet. The GeForce RTX 2070 will follow in October.

The cards are the first time ray tracing is available to every day consumers.

Equipped with a brand new premium design and triple fans, the GAMING TRIO and DUKE series will deliver the best-in-class thermal performance you have come to expect from MSI. They are also touted as having extremely durable power delivery hardware to support overclocking.
