There’s really little left for NVIDIA (and its partners) to surprise us with at Monday’s special GeForce-centric Gamescom event. Over the past few days, there have been numerous leaks regarding NVIDIA’s upcoming GeForce RTX 2080 and the even more powerful GeForce RTX 2080 Ti graphics cards.
At this point, these are the confirmed specs that we have for the PNY versions of the two high-end gaming cards:
So far, two MSI GeForce RTX families have leaked along with cards from Palit and PNY. Not to be left out, we now can bring you images and details of cards from ASUS, EVGA and Zotac. First off, here’s what ASUS has to offer:
ASUS has at least three confirmed GeForce RTX families: the ROG Strix Gaming, Dual and Turbo. ROG Strix Gaming is no doubt the top dog offering with triple fans and LED lighting. The Dual cards have twin fans (obviously), while Turbo cards come with a single blower-style cooling arrangement that we’re used to with NVIDIA reference cards. The GeForce RTX 2080 and GeForce RTX 2080 Ti cards from ASUS will be available from each of these three families.
We’ve only seen one card from EVGA leak, and it’s the GeForce RTX 2080 XC Ultra. This card comes equipped with 8GB of GDDR6, has a dual-fan cooling setup, and incorporates RGB lighting elements.
Finally, we have the AMP series from Zotac. There will be both GeForce RTX 2080 and GeForce RTX 2080 Ti cards offered in this series, both of which forgo RGB lighting flourishes to give you the basics: factory overclocked speeds and triple fans.
That’s all for now, but we’re almost certain that more cards will be leaking between now and Monday’s big announcement. At that time, we should be receiving some official confirmation of pricing and availability for the GeForce RTX 2080 and GeForce RTX 2080 Ti.
