NVIDIA GeForce GTX 2080/1180 will be Called RTX 2080

Anyone following what they can of Nvidia's next-generation architecture will know it's been a confusing one, with Ampere, Volta and Turing being touted as the sequel to Pascal. The final two trademarks filed by Nvidia list the "GeForce RTX" and "Quadro RTX", suggesting that it could be possible we will see its new ray tracing tech reserved for a newer, perhaps higher-end brand than the already established GTX series.

As with all rumors, especially those surrounding the 2080/1180, take these with a dose of salt, though it's probably safe to assume that the upcoming graphics cards will have some pretty awesome performance compared to the aging Pascal-based GPUs. There is a bit of confusion regarding the naming scheme and release so take this information with a grain of salt and wait for the official word from Nvidia before taking things to heart.

As AdoredTV claimed, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 will be 8% faster than the GTX1080Ti and 50% faster than the GTX1080, whereas the new Titan GPU will be 15% faster than the Titan V and 50% faster than the GTX1080Ti.

BenchLife is reporting this rumor and if it turns out to be true, we could be looking at the first Founders Edition card with a dual-fan cooler, but it definitely wouldn't be the first NVIDIA graphics card to don a dual-fan cooler.

NVIDIA will hold its GeForce Gaming Celebration event on August 20th so stay tuned for more!
