If you made it all the way through today’s NVIDIA presentation at the ongoing gamescom trade fair, you’re either super into graphics cards and computer technology, or you’re a hardcore PC gamer who is intent on getting the cutting-edge tech in your rig when it arrives later this September. For the masses, CEO Jensen Huang, complete with iconic leather jacket, gave more of a TED Talk on the physics of light-scattering, reflection and refraction, and how difficult it’s been to replicate those natural phenomena in real time. Luckily, you don’t have to have a PhD in either physics or computer technology to appreciate the new video game trailers from the event which are putting Nvidia’s RTX tech on display.
Below you’ll find brand new trailers for Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Metro Exodus and Battlefield V, all of which take advantage of the RTX family of graphics cards’ ability to recreate real-time lighting effects. This “ray-tracing” tech conjures up more realistic environmental lighting, crystal clear reflections, and makes computer-generated objects and characters appear more life-like than ever before. This is the first look at the RTX tech, but we’ll get a lot more opportunities to see the cards in action once they arrive on September 20th.
The Turing GPU Architecture on the RTX Platform will be available in the following formats:
- GeForce RTX 2080 starting at $699 (the Founder’s Edition is $800)
- GeForce RTX 2080 Ti starting at $1,000 (the Founder’s Edition is $1,200)
- GeForce RTX 2070 starts at $500 (the Founder’s Edition is $600), *No release date yet
