And right away, the name of Nvidia's new GPU indicates that some major changes are in store.
It can also create accurate light reflections on glass, metal, and over the eyes of in-game human characters. With ray-tracing, an in-game graphics engine can depict light that will accurately bounce and diffuse across a room in a more realistic fashion.
The GeForce Gamescom keynote was where we expected Nvidia to unveil its new PC gaming technology, and on that front it didn't disappoint.
But you may have noticed that Nvidia is using RTX rather than the GTX prefix. The reflected light carries the information of the object it hit, based on its coded values, which is how the camera knows what it's "seeing". The good news is that the hardcore won't have long to wait at all.

With the help of Nvidia's real-time ray tracing tech, DICE is able to reflect explosions, fire, and the surrounding environment dynamically, emulating the surfaces of water, glass, and cars while taking into account the angle at which the player is viewing them. Let's get to it...
"The NVIDIA RTX platform and GeForce RTX 20-series GPUs bring real-time ray tracing to games 10 years sooner than anyone could have ever imagined", said Tony Tamasi, senior vice president of Content and Technology at NVIDIA, in a release so fresh the virtual ink is still wet.
The HP OMEN Obelisk will be available in September on HP.com starting at $879.99. We will be reaching out to manufacturers everywhere for details regarding the release of their respective GeForce RTX cards in Malaysia, so keep a look for such information coming your way when the time comes.
The RTX 2070 will include 8GB of vRAM and will have 45T of RTX-OPS, while the standard RTX 2080 moves up to 60T of RTX-OPS, with the top-end RTX 2080 featuring a massive 11GB of vRAM and 78T of RTX-OPS. Nvidia says that Turing delivers up to 6X the performance of to previous-generation Pascal GPUs. The new cards will also feature faster GDDR6 memory, which will enable players to run games at 4K resolution at 60 frames per seconds for even high-end gaming titles.
