The new generation of NVidia GPUs will be presented on the 20th of August at Gamescon. Preorder starts the same day, delivery is expected in the following 7-10 days.

Codename of the graphic chips is Turing, named after the famous computer scientist Alan Turing, who developed the "Bombe" that cracked the notorious Enigma-code. He also invented the Turing, a mathematical model of computation that defines an abstract machine, which manipulates symbols on a strip of tape according to a table of rules

Its name change from 'GTX' to 'RTX' is reasoned in the additional _R_aytracing cores the new generation is housing, which make raytracing available in real time. The price will start somewhere below the GTX 1080Ti and well above the GTX 1080.

It also looks like that they will launch the Ti version right after or maybe even at the same time. There are definitly already samples out there, so maybe NVidia wants to bring this card well before christmas season.

Safe tech facts:

RTX 2080: 8GB GDDR6 RAM with 3500MHz, core clock ~1515-1525 MHz

RTX 2080 Ti: 11GB GDDR6 RAM with 3500MHz, core clock ~1350MHz

Speculated facts:

RTX 2080: 2944 cores, 184 TMUs und 64 ROPs; also 3072 cores possible; TDP 210W

RTX 2080 Ti: 4352 cores, 272 TMUs und 88 ROPs; TDP >250W

It's rumored there is a huge overclocking headroom and custom cards with more than 2GH should be available, while manual OC might reach up to 2,5GHz. That would be quite impressive.
