We're on the ground in Cologne right now and we'll be getting hands-on with a host of upcoming PC games and, of course, we'll be watching Nvidia CEO, Jen-Hsun Huang, strut the stage detailing the latest in PC graphics cards with the new RTX 2080.

Nvidia's next-generation gaming graphics cards, the RTX 20 series, will launch on September 20 with a pair of products that'll start at $699.

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. 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 NVIDIA did not reveal any benchmarks for its new RTX graphics card, we got a taste of what the high-end model, the RTX 2080Ti, can achieve in a specific current-gen tech demo. It can compute 45 trillion simultaneous RTX operations. Next is the RTX 2080 which has 8 Giga Rays per second, 60 trillion RTX-OPS, and 8 GB frame buffer. The RTX 2070 will only cost $599, however it's now not available for pre-order just yet. The RTX 2080 Ti features 11GB of GDDR6 memory and 4352 CUDA cores, which is a 20% increase over the GTX 1080 Ti and 70% more than the GTX 1080. The GeForce RTX 2070 will follow in October.

These cards will be available at Amazon, Best Buy, and Newegg.

In India, listings for four Zotac GeForce RTX graphics cards have appeared online with prices starting at Rs. 70,990 for a GeForce RTX 2080 with a basic blower-style cooler, and going up to Rs. 1,09,990 for a triple-fan overclocked Amp Edition version of the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti.

MSI announced five series of GeForce RTX cards, which means there should be a model that suits everyone's needs. These new GPUs will also feature the standard NVIDIA features such as Showplay, VR support, 4K output, DirectX 12 support, G-Sync, HDR and many more.
