Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti is going to be the top of the line graphics card that will replace the current GTX 1080 Ti. MSI has already announced the MSI Trident X compact gaming PC that is powered by this graphics card. If you are looking for a small form factor PC that does not compromise on power then this is something worth looking into.
The MSI Trident X is pretty compact compared to the other pre-built systems that we have on the market these days. On the CPU side, the MSI Trident X can be equipped with the latest 8th generation Intel CPUs with the unlocked multipliers, so they can be overclocked. This is 2018 and everything thing has RGB lighting and so does the MSI Trident X. There are RGB lights on the front as well as on the side.
There is a mesh on the side that is supposed to increase airflow. In such a tight chassis, you have high-end components and you would expect the temperature to rise pretty quick. Keeping that in mind the case has been designed with multiple outlets for air flow and the mesh on the side is just one example.
We also know that the Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti has been delayed by a week. It was supposed to be available on the 20th but now that has moved to the 27th. If you have pre-ordered the Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti, then you should get one by 27th. Luckily, that does not affect the release of the RTX 2080.
Both these cards will come with the NVLink that offers higher bandwidth as compared to traditional SLI but Nvidia technical marketing director, Tom Petersen. touched on the matter and according to him the increase in performance in games will be small. The following is what he had to say in this regard:
Think of the bridge more as we want to lay a foundation for the future and that requires us to move the infrastructure along. So we already have a multi-GPU application called SLI, why don’t we just make that work on a really high-bandwidth bridge bus? And once that works, and we get our bridges deployed, and people understanding that hey, this is a 100GB/s bridge, then game developers will see that.
Let us know what you think about the Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti and whether or not this is something that you are interested in getting.
