Nowadays the range of Nvidia video cards is officially supplemented with GeForce RTX 2070, RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti gaming adapters. All three devices are based on the Turing graphical architecture, which has already been used in the professional accelerators of the Quadro RTX series, while the two older cards are currently available for pre-order. The retail sales of new products start on 20 September.
The TU102 graphics processor, the underlying GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, contains 18.6 billion transistors, 4.352 active CUDA cores (physical 4.608 cores), 272 texture units and 88 rendering blocks. GPU production is carried out with the 12-nm process technology FinFET from TSMC and the operating frequency is from 1350 to 1545 MHz with dynamic overclocking processes.
The memory subsystem of the new game flagship "green" is represented by 11 gigabytes of GDDR6, connected to the video core via a 352-bit interface. The effective frequency of the used chips is 14 GHz, providing a memory bandwidth of 616 GB / s. The nominal TDP level of the novelty is 250 W and two 8-pin PCI-E Power connectors are used to connect an additional power supply.
GeForce RTX graphics cards of the reference design were given a cooling system with two ~ 90 mm fans. NVLink is now located on the site of the usual SLI connector, allowing you to create graphical bundles of two adapters. There are three DisplayPort 1.4 interfaces for outputting the image, as well as an HDMI 2.0b and a VirtualLink (USB Type-C). There is a reinforcing plate on the back of the cards.
The pre-top model GeForce RTX 2080 is satisfied with the 12-nanometer TU104 crystal, which serves 2944 CUDA cores with an operating frequency of 1515 to 1710 MHz. On the card, eight gigabytes of GDDR6 memory with a 256-bit bus, characterized by an effective frequency of 14 GHz, are disconnected. The bandwidth of the memory subsystem is 448 GB / s. The nominal heat package is indicated at 215 watts.
The youngest representative of the new line of video game cards represented by GeForce RTX 2070 is limited to 2304 CUDA cores, operating at a frequency of 1410 to 1620 MHz. The memory subsystem is identical to the GeForce RTX 2080 described above and contains 8 GB of GDDR6 with a processing capacity of 448 GB / sec. The TDP staff is 175 watts.
Regarding the recommended prices, in the implementation of the Founders Edition, the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti card costs $ 1200, for GeForce RTX 2080 it is necessary to give $ 800, and to become owner of GeForce RTX 2070 this is possible for $ 600. Models from AIB partners Nvidia costs at least $ 1000, $ 700 and $ 500 respectively.
