Leaks reveal NVIDIA GeForce RTX cards ahead of August 20th event

NVIDIA hasn't been shy about plans to unveil Turing-based GeForce video cards at its August 20th Gamescom event -- its teaser video effectively spelled out "GeForce RTX 2080" through not-so-subtle clues. A slew of leaks on Reddit, WCCFTech and VideoCardz have spilled the beans on the first GeForce RTX-series boards, and they promise fundamental leaps in performance over the GTX 1000 hardware you're used to. The centerpiece would be the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, which reportedly packs the same 11GB of memory (now with speedier GDDR6) and 352-bit memory bus as the GTX 1080 Ti, but now with a whopping 4,352 CUDA cores -- that's 21 percent more than the 1080 Ti, and nearly as many as in the pro-oriented Quadro RTX 6000.
