NVIDIA has officially announced its next-gen GeForce RTX 2080 and GeForce RTX 2080 Ti graphics cards, here in Cologne, Germany at their huge GeForce Gaming Celebration event.

The most powerful entry in Nvidia's option is the new RTX 2080 Ti, followed by the 2080, and then the 2070.

The OnePlus 6T will be officially supported by T-Mobile this fall
Moreover, the OnePlus will be introducing the OnePlus 6T handset with an exclusive deal with U.S. carrier - T Mobile . Verizon and Sprint were never in the running since OnePlus handsets use incompatible wireless standards.

The core foundation of the GeForce RTX 20 series is the new NVIDIA RTX platform which is a new hybrid rendering engine that allows for impressive results. Along with the usual speed and enhanced graphics that entails, this also means GeForce RTX supports real-time ray tracing in supported games - including Battlefield 5, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and Metro Exodus.

But Nvidia's founder and boss Jensen Huang has touted the Turing architecture as the largest development in Nvidia's history noting it's the "greatest leap since we created CUDA" and as such has the power and architecture to handle real-time ray-tracing in graphics cards the average Joe or Jill can buy. The end result is computer generated images and graphics look fabulously realistic and as shiny as the polished bonce of Chris Merriman. The new RTX 2080 has 8GB of GDDR6 memory and 2944 CUDA cores, a 15% increase over the GTX 1080 which similarly uses GDDR5x memory. Next is the RTX 2080 which has 8 Giga Rays per second, 60 trillion RTX-OPS, and 8 GB frame buffer.

House of Fraser apologises after cancelling all online orders
In this latest development, the company has informed customers that it has cancelled online orders due to significant delays. Sports Direct chief executive Ashley said at the time: "We will do our best to keep as many stores open as possible".

As expected, the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti is the mack daddy of the family with a whopping 4352 CUDA cores. Both have 11GB of GDDR6 memory on a 352-bit bus, but TDP ratings of 215W and 250W respectively.

Of course, for users the main question is when the cards themselves will be available. MSI's Gaming Trio and Duke series feature dual-slot triple fan cooling solutions and overclocked GPUs. Some specs of the RTX were leaked over the weekend, and confirmed by the company on Monday. These cards also feature USB Type-C connectors on the rear in support of the upcoming VirtualLink standard to deliver power as well as graphics to VR headsets with a single cable.
