Nvidia teases ray tracing-focused 'RTX 2080' in easter egg-filled video

All of which were running on the new Turing Architecture, the successor the NVIDIA's existing Pascal architecture.

The news was revealed during Siggraph 2018, an annual conference focused on computer graphics. Shares of Nvidia were up 1.6% in pre-market trade Tuesday.

Nvidia is calling Turing "the greatest leap in computer graphics in over a decade", noting that it is focusing on realistic ray-tracing (incredible lighting effects) for its "RTX" range of cards.

Reported Sunderland target joins Dons on season-long loan
Boss Derek McInnes hopes to finalise a season-loan loan deal for the former England under-21 global over the next 24 hours. Wilson first hit the headlines when he scored twice on his United debut in a 3-1 win over Hull City as an 18-year-old.

These features are part of the NVIDIA NGX software development kit, a new deep learning- powered technology stack that enables developers to easily integrate accelerated, enhanced graphics, photo imaging and video processing into applications with pre-trained networks. While most of the rest of the teaser is dedicated to a variety of flashy hardware, the big hint at the name of the potential upcoming GPU comes from a brief shot of a discord chat between gamers subtly named "RoyTeX" and "Not_11", hinting at the RTX designation and that the next series won't carry the 1180 designation, as some had speculated. Additionally, the video seems to contain Global Positioning System coordinates that lead directly to the location of Nvidia's GeForce Gaming Celebration, which will be held during Gamescom.

The final two usernames are Mac-20 and Eight Tee, which has led redditors to combine all of them and decree that the graphics card may be called the "RTX 2080". If the RTX 2080 is built on the same Turing architecture, the addition of ray tracing alone could bring a huge graphical boost to supported games. In fact it's one of the furthest things Nvidia makes from a consumer card at all, but it's a massively impressive piece of technology regardless. Samsung narrows down the new pro GPU's worldwide availability to October (more precise than Q4).
