Furthermore, Nvidia's GeForce RTX 2070 Founders Edition graphics card also features a vapor chamber combined with 13-blade dual-axial fans for keeping the chip as cool as possible and for silent operation.
Nvidia's Turing-based GPUs come with high-level shading technologies, more efficient and flexible than ever before which, combined with GDDR6 the fasted memory available at the moment, will enable gamers to play any game with the highest possible frame rates and maxed-out graphics settings.
The GeForce RTX 2070 has built-in support for DIRECTX 12's all-new rendering techniques and visual effects, and it makes it possible to enjoy 4K gaming with realistic graphics and in fantastic detail.
According to Nvidia's Turing promotion page, all new NVIDIA Turing GPU architecture graphics cards which use the company's RTX platform are designed to provide their users with a combination of artificial intelligence, real-time ray tracing, and programmable shading which should provide them with an entirely new gaming experience.
Beautiful any way you look at it.
