So the much-awaited event of Nvidia is finally over and their new GPU is finally launched. NVIDIA CEO, Jensen Huang revealed the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and the RTX 2080 as the first set of graphics cards from the 20-series. The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Founder’s Edition will be priced at $1,199, the GeForce RTX 2080 Founder’s Edition will be priced at $799 and lastly, the GeForce RTX 2070 will be priced at $599.
Official Indian pricing for the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition is Rs.1,02,500. The GeForce RTX 2080 is selling for Rs.68,500 and the GeForce RTX 2070 is retailing at Rs.51,200
NVIDIA opted for the new RTX branding to promote the ray-tracing performance that the new RTX 2080 Ti, RTX 2080 and RTX 2070 is capable of. As for the lower members of the GPU family such as the 2060 and 2050, they’re expected to carry the GTX name because they don’t have that big of an improvement in terms of ray-tracing performance. Also, it should be noted that the real-time ray tracing capabilities are because of the new RT cores that are built into the new NVIDIA Turing GPUs.
Indian pricing for ZOTAC’s RTX 2080 Ti and RTX 2080(tax included):
GeForce RTX 2080 Ti: Rs.105,990
GeForce RTX 2080: Rs.70,990
GeForce RTX 2070: Rs.56,500 (Not confirmed)
So it turns out RTX 2080 is heavy on your pocket. Board partners will be selling their cards at much lower prices. But also keep in mind that this GPU is worlds most powerful GPU.
Pre-order has begun on 20 August 2018 for the new Turing based NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, 2080 and 2070, customers will only be getting their cards starting from September 20th.
