Nvidia whetted the appetites of PC gamers everywhere late last year by announcing its GeForce RTX 20 series line of graphics cards, and more recently, releasing information on the specs and prices for GeForce RTX 2080 and GeForce RTX 2070 Founders Edition models. Based on the company’s newest Turing architecture, which is designed to push real-time ray tracing technology to the masses for the first time.

A fast, powerful graphics card that’s the perfect fit for serious gamers
Call it a generational leap, but whatever you do, don’t call it a comeback. Yes, Nvidia was on the ropes and AMD were sending jabs to the gut, but it looks like everyone’s losing their heads over Nvidia launching their new flagship GeForce RTX 2070 graphics card. The RTX 2070 is a $599 graphics card with performance that matches up with much more expensive graphics cards.
It’s one of the first consumer-level graphics cards that supports real-time raytracing, which is a technology that has been a dream of PC gamers for decades. It’s also the cheapest RTX GPU to date. The GeForce RTX 2060 replaced the GTX 1060 as Nvidia’s affordable $300 card and now it can be found for even less. This puts it in direct competition with AMD’s excellent Radeon RX 590.
Smooth, real-time graphics, tear-free gaming at high resolutions
Nvidia’s newest RTX 20 Series graphics cards are powered by the industry-leading NVIDIA Turing architecture, bringing incredible performance and innovation with real-time ray tracing and all-new AI capabilities. The powerful GeForce RTX 2070 is the entry point to PC gaming.
The new GPU has received some criticism for its increased pricing and fewer CUDA cores when compared to the previous generation graphics card. In this article, I am going to look at what has changed, if anything at all, from the previous generation cards and how the cheaper options stack up against the more expensive cards of previous generations.
It’s not every day you come across a new family of graphics cards — especially one that pulls together the best of both traditional and innovative technologies. In the case of Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 2070, the innovation is in its latest RT and Tensor cores. The two GPU-specific ASIC programs enable real-time ray tracing and tensor computation that is traditionally an intensive task involving multiple video cards working in tandem. The real-world impact on your midrange gaming PC is more dynamic shadows, lighting effects, and higher resolutions.
The GeForce RTX 2070 (Model: 2070-8GD5 Founders Edition) is a high-performance graphics card designed for the latest games, and is ideal for powering virtual reality (VR) and extended reality (XR) applications. It succeeds the GeForce GTX 1070 as the best value performance part in the Nvidia Turing line-up.
Your graphics card isn’t good enough to power the giant screens you crave?
You have an extra-ordinary appetite for 2nd to 4th-generation, high-res screens – but your graphics card just doesn’t have it all.
The Solution: The GeForce RTX 2070 Founders Edition graphics card is the most advanced gaming graphics card ever made as of January 2019. It features real-time ray tracing technology, and a next-gen memory architecture. Using our revolutionary Turing GPU architecture and featuring next-gen GDDR6 memory, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 gives you up to 6X the performance of previous-generation graphics cards and brings the power of real-time ray tracing and AI to games.
There’s no denying it. We’re living in a golden age of PC gaming.
The level of detail is unprecedented, the sandbox worlds are bigger and more immersive than ever before, and AAA+ titles simply wouldn’t be possible without the power of today’s hardware.
The part that many people may not realize? All of those jaw-dropping visuals are possible because powerful graphics cards like the GeForce RTX 2070 have become affordable enough to unite great performance with stunning realism on the multiple monitors we connect to our systems at home.
More than ever before, PC gamers can afford to plug into ultra-high resolutions and overall immersion with a single graphics card upgrade.
