Alienware Announces Upgraded Gaming Desktops With Nvidia RTX GPUs

Nvidia is keeping its (graphics) cards close to the vest, but in all likelihood, the GeForce RTX 2080 will be the star of the show at today's event. The RTX 2080 is priced at $800, while the RTX 2080 Ti is set at $1,200.
The GPU also includes a dedicated RT Core for ray tracing operations, with Nvidia promising a ray tracing capability of 10 gigarays per second; for comparison, a GTX 1080 Ti can manage about 1.21 Giga Rays per second according to Nvidia's calculations. Price-conscious gamers will be more interested in the upcoming 2060 and 2070, which will still provide significant power boosts without the huge price tag. The GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and GeForce RTX 2080 are expected to start shipping around September 20, 2018. We will be reaching out to manufacturers everywhere for details regarding the release of their respective GeForce RTX cards in Malaysia, so keep a look for such information coming your way when the time comes. Pre-orders and availability for the RTX 2070 have not yet been announced at time of writing. These new cards use the Turing GPU architecture and boast the ability to perform ray tracing technology (or RTX for short, hence the card names).
Nvida even says to more accurately judge the performance of new RTX cards, it had to create a new unit of measure called RTX OPS, which includes a combination of standard shader performance, floating point integer performance, ray tracing performance and AI performance. Games like Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Metro: Exodus, and Battlefield V showcased how this tech is implemented by comparing a scene with RTX turned on and off.
While both cards are mostly the same, there is a fair difference in price. It was not at all feasible in 3D games, except it now is (on a somewhat simpler scale) using NVIDIA's new graphics cards.
Asus, EVGA, Gigabyte, MSI, PNY, and Zotac are all announcing GeForce RTX Cards, and they're available to pre-order right now.
