“NVIDIA says the RTX 2080 is designed for overclocking, and the RTX 2070 will offer more performance than NVIDIA’s Titan XP card. The RTX 2080 will be clocked at 1515MHz with 2944 CUDA cores and 8GB of GDDR6 RAM. NVIDIA is recommending PC gamers have a 650W power supply, as the base RTX 2080 draws up to 215 watts of power. The main promise of these new cards is ray-tracing, a rendering technique that results in real-time light reflections and cinematic effects that can make games look a lot more like movies,” reports The Verge.
