The Nvidia Geforce RTX 2070 comes out in just a few days and the leaks confirms that it will be faster than the GTX 1080. RTX 2080 and the RTX 2080ti are the top dogs of the new series to the NVIDIA family but the price tag on these cards have kept them out of reach of most of the gamers.
The xx70 cards of any Nvidia GPU series is often characterized as a mid-range product in price with performance that hews closer to a high-end card – especially if you’re comfortable with overclocking, and 2070 being the only graphics card with real-time ray-tracing that’s anywhere close to being affordable it is going to be the Bang for the Buck
RELEASE DATE/ PRICING
Nvidia is launching this Next-Gen mid-ranged card, the RTX 2070 on October 17/2k18. As with the rest of the Turing lineup, this graphics card comes at a substantial premium over its predecessor. Nvidia may have announced the GeForce RTX 2070 with a starting price of $499 (about £380, AU$690), but you’ll more likely find the price at around $599 (£569, AU$899) However the Founders Edition version of the Nvidia RTX 2070 will be Priced at a premium cost
RTX 2070 specifications
The Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 not only looks exciting because it’s the cheapest RTX graphics card you can buy currently, it also packs an impressive transistor count. Spec for spec, this GPU leapfrogs its predecessor by including 20% more CUDA cores and 6Gbps faster GDDR6 video memory.
We’re still in the dark as to how many Ray Tracing (RT) cores and AI-powered Tensor cores this GPU will feature. However, it’s almost a guarantee that we’ll see fewer of each compared to what’s available on the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080.
Still, the leaked benchmarks we’ve seen so far position the RTX 2070 as being more powerful than the last-generation GTX 1080. If these benchmarks are accurate, it could make the RTX 2070 more appealing for the everyday consumer – even if it’s more expensive than its predecessor.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem that the RTX 2070 will support pairing multiple GPUs through SLI – even though Nvidia introduced a much higher bandwidth NVLink Bridge connector with Turing. If you’re looking to do a multi-GPU setup, you’ll have to plunk down more money on a higher-end graphics card from Nvidia.
Thats all the updates we had for now, we will update a in-depth review of this card once it launched and once the official numbers are out so stay tuned witch TecGlut
- We’re hoping Intel Coffee Lake Refresh processors will pair perfectly with these GPUs
