New features of RTX 2000 series, is it worth buying it?

Sep 22, 2018 News

With a performance six time better than the previous GTX 1000 series these graphics cards don’t come at a cheap price. With the price starting at 699$ for the RTX 2080 and 999$ for the RTX 2080 Ti not every gamer can afford it. If you have money and can’t decide which GPU you want to buy, or if you are just an interested enthusiast here we will be reviewing both of those GPUs.

There is also the cheaper RTX 2070 with the price 599$ on the founders edition. All those GPUs are priding themselves on the 6 times the performance of its predecessors.

With this GPUsNvidia is presenting real-time ray racing in games and powerful AI enchanted graphics. Ray tracing will provide more lifelike shadows, lighting, reflections and it is the first GPU capable of using it and with the new powerful AI GPUs can run AI algorithms in real time to create better, clear and more lifelike images.Nvidia is also introducing us with GDDR6. With that there is a great improvement in the memory speed and bandwidth. Soon we can expect graphics cards with a memory speed up to 16GBps. 

So, let’s see the specs of the graphs:

What GPU to buy?
Well, that depends what kind of games you are going to play and on what resolution. If you are not short on money and are playing on full HD or 1440p then we recommend for you the RTX 2080 but if you don’t want to give up so much money (let’s be real, it isn’t cheap) then go for the RTX 2070. But if you’re going to play on 4K resolution or on VR we would recommend you the RTX 2080 Ti.
