Here's how Battlefield 5 looks with Nvidia RTX effects

"Turing opens up a new golden age of gaming, with realism only possible with ray tracing, which most people thought was still a decade away", Jensen Huang, founder and CEO of NVIDIA, said at the conference. While most manufacturers are keeping their cards' clock speeds under wraps, Zotac says the chip in the RTX 2080 Blower has the Nvidia-default boost clock of 1710 MHz.

"Turing is NVIDIA's most important innovation in computer graphics in more than a decade", said Justin Walker, director of GeForce desktop at NVIDIA, in the release.

As expected, the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti is the mack daddy of the family with a whopping 4352 CUDA cores.

Getting personal: US, Turkish leaders feud over arrest
The rising tensions have caused the value of the lira to plunge by about a third of its value against the dollar since January. Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin said the U.S. could put more sanctions on Turkey if the pastor is not released soon.

EVGA is also hopping aboard the RTX 20-series hype train with a number of RTX 2080 cards available. Pricing for 2070 starts at $499 ($599 for the Founders Edition), making this card much more affordable than its big brothers. Meanwhile, the RTX 2080, will go for $699. That new nomenclature is a nod to the ray-tracing capabilities of the new Turing architecture. The surprise was spoiled last week when the full list of specifications for an unannounced RTX 2080 Ti card leaked online, giving us an early look at Nvidia's next flagship GPU.

That led us to speculate how well the next-gen GeForce cards will be able to render ray-tracing.

Erdogan says Turkey will boycott U.S. electronics, lira steadies
The United States is also considering a fine against Turkey's state-owned Halkbank for allegedly helping Iran evade USA sanctions. USA national security adviser John Bolton on Monday met Turkey's ambassador to the United States to discuss Brunson's detention.

This is a light rendering technique that basically gives developers the ability to calculate shadows and reflections right down to a single beam of light in order to create hyper-realistic graphics such as the ones we saw in the jaw-dropping Star Wars Unreal Engine ray tracing teaser released back at GDC in March.

Normally, ray-tracing would take a serious amount of graphical power to run; we're talking Nvidia DXG supercomputer level. Along with the usual speed and enhanced graphics that entails, this also means GeForce RTX supports real-time ray tracing in supported games - including Battlefield 5, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and Metro Exodus. Those of you who want to see what Turing's capable of will want to be on the lookout for those.

A little known fact about Schwartz is that he was also credited under "Vocal Consultants" in Star Wars: The Force Awakens' BB-8. The Sonic movie is being directed by Jeff Fowler , whose 2005 animated movie Gopher Broke was nominated for an Oscar.
