GeForce RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti – First South African pricing and detailed specifications

It’s been a long time coming, but as expected, NVIDIA’s CEO Jensen Huang revealed the next-generation graphics cards just before Gamescom. As it turns out, the leak we reported about over the weekend was accurate as the official specifications for the new flagship card, the RTX 2080 Ti, line up with those in the leak.

NVIDIA also revealed the RTX 2080 and mentioned that the upcoming RTX 2070 is actually more powerful than the GeForce GTX Titan Xp, which is the most powerful GPU based on the Pascal architecture. However, no actual benchmarks have been revealed. The RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti will feature an entirely new architecture in the form of Turing. The biggest draws here are that these cards deliver real-time Ray Tracing, massive CUDA Core counts, GDDR6 VRAM and something called AI graphics.

The RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti is expected to ship around 20 September, with no official date for when it will arrive in South Africa. Judging from the 10-series release, not long after, but most of us might need quite some time to save their money because these cards are absolute beasts, and come at beastly price points as well.

At the time of writing, one local store, Evetech, has their pre-order price for a variety of RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti’s up and the cheapest on there are the following:

  • MSI GeForce RTX 2080 Duke OC Edition 8GB – R16,499
  • ASUS GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Turbo Edition 11GB – R24,999  

That’s quite the jaw-dropping local price and since Evetech is almost always one of, if not the cheapest store around, we can expect that this would be one of the best prices you can get on one of these cards for now.  

With that in mind, check out the detailed specifications for the base RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti. Note that manufacturers like MSI, ASUS, Palit and more might have slightly different clock speeds depending on how overclocked their offerings are.
