    Next gen Nvidia GeForce graphics cards rumour roundup

    Will the founder's edition use dual-fans? Will it be dubbed the RTX series? And lots more.

    Loving the cover picture. Nerds dressed like rock stars and trying to create the atmosphere of a concert.

    For a PCB with some very expensive bits of black stuff stuck on with blobs of environmentally friendly lead-free metal.

    The RTX 2080 only 8% faster than a 1080ti which has more, albeit slightly slower memory? Ok so it is likely to include support for Raytracing - but surely that is just a driver/software issue? If the RTX 2070 has the perfromance to support it then surely a 1080ti will have.

    It will be interesting to see if the price of 1080ti cards drop a lot...

    It depends on the metric you're using to measure the "speed". If you're looking at raw aggregated FPS in current games or perhaps even a single benchmark given this is clearly a guide for selling them, then it may well be only a few percent faster. Hardware optimisations for ray tracing may mean that (realistically for games in 1 or 2 years time which utilise it more) a specific benchmark for this may make it twice as fast or more on this specific metric. Without knowing how they derived the statistics listed here, they're fairly meaingless. Also, whilst ray tracing may well be a driver issue, they are simply going to claim it's more hardware and not update drivers for older cards to enable it because they want you to have to buy the latest card for the latest features. ATI/AMD were pretty good at making cards which lasted longer in this regard but Nvidia (in my experience) tend to try and shaft consumers wherever possible. I'm no AMD fanboy, I have a Nvidia card. I'm a brand whore - I buy whoever has the best at the time.

    I look forward to every game getting an extra 6/11fps extra for the cash. Each year... the same story.

    If we'd only just stop buying, when a new version arrives, these companies might just lower the prices. It's not like we desperately NEED the extra small fps increases.

    P.s. Why would anyone throw down cash for an 1180 KNOWING that the 1180+ is one month away?

    The size of memory doesn't seem logical to me... 2070 with 7Gb video ram?! Less than 1070? So 2070ti will have 7.5Gb?

    Usually new model was 50% faster than the previous generation, so that looks OK.

    What about that VEGAs made on 12nm?

    I guess there's two models for buying a new card - either you buy year on year and sell off your old card to subsidise it while it's still worth something, or you actually only change cards every few years, so it's not a small fps increase, but a substantial one.

    Or you buy a generation old card from someone doing the first model, so you get a card that's value for money, and you subsidise them buying the new one.

    In any case, the models work best where there ISN'T a big increase in performance between generations - making one or two generations old cards still attractive in order to increase their second hand value.

    Always hard to know with Nvidia and their love of market segmentation, but 3.5GB or 7GB must mean 224-bit memory system and it seems unlikely they would have designed one like that. So possible a cut down version of a 256-bit chip?

    Re: Next gen Nvidia GeForce graphics cards rumour roundup

    Am i the only one to think that if Nvidia ray tracing technology is something supported by these new cards that the likelihood of it a) being supported by game developers, and b) not crippling performance on competitors GPUs is probably pretty low.

    I guess game developers could switch it on or off depending on detected GPU or a graphics setting option but are they going to bother with the extra work or be leaned on?

    I think, from what I've seen, ray tracing is the future. Whether it will be widely supported before consoles take it up wholesale with hardware optimisations is another matter. So I would be surprised if it's a feature which will do much aside from a few Crysis-alike titles or benchmarks for a year or so. That said, we're entering uncharted territory where the lifespan of a card is so long it's now worth considering the longevity of feature sets and driver support. In the old days of rapid releases you could easily justify getting a last gen cheap card but now your card may well last a lot longer (voluntarily or not as if there's nothing to upgrade to then you can't upgrade) and considerations expand far beyond terafloppage and FPS.

    Not suprise from nvidia's GPU history that the 2080 will only be 10 percent faster and the 2080ti will be 45-50 percent faster than 1080ti big surprise there..

    Re: Next gen Nvidia GeForce graphics cards rumour roundup

    It's all down to price for me I think. I'm due an upgrade, I've got x2 970's in SLI. A x070 is the logical replacement, providing that it is markedly faster than my current setup. Gives me a couple of years of pretty good game performance before SLI'ing again.

    That said, I'm still running 1080p @ 72Hz, so I need to invest in a monitor, and if anybody has been following my monitor musings, you'll know that won't be cheap!

    Re: Next gen Nvidia GeForce graphics cards rumour roundup

    For everything other than gaming my move to qHD was awesome,but even though games look nicer,the need for significantly more graphics processing power at that resolution even at 60HZ,means for pure gaming I would probably just stick to 1080p.
