Despite my (misplaced) confidence that Nvidia wouldn't jump the gun and go straight to 20-series, the latest teaser vid makes a strong case than the next generation's launch flagship will be called the RTX 2080 and will be based on the Turing GPU architecture. There has been speculation in the past that Nvidia will complement its GTX series with an RTX line, and that the two GPU families could exist together.
Nvidia is calling Turing "the greatest leap in computer graphics in over a decade", noting that it is focusing on realistic ray-tracing (incredible lighting effects) for its "RTX" range of cards.
"Hybrid rendering will change the industry, opening up unbelievable possibilities that enhance our lives with more handsome designs, richer entertainment and more interactive experiences", he said. As the world's first ray tracing GPUs, the company says the architecture "fundamentally changes how computer graphics will be done, it's a step change in realism". All that power comes at a cost, and the Quadro RTX 8000 flagship will be priced at $10,000 when it ships. However, we wonder if the next-gen gaming GPUs from Nvidia will be based on the Nvidia Turing architecture or not. Now, courtesy of a number of easter eggs tucked into an official teaser video, we have a much better idea of what that might be.

Newman claimed she had already heard of Trump's racism while she was serving his administration during the presidential campaign. Colbert also expressed shock that Chief of Staff John Kelly fired Omarosa in The Situation Room and threatened her reputation .
Software-wise, Turing includes a plug-in architecture for deep learning and offers interoperability between rasterisation, ray tracing, compute and AI. The Turing GPUs overhaul Nvidia's current model with some new tricks, including features added to the Volta GPUs for AI and data centers.

Translated, "Aqui" means "Here" and plopping the coordinates into Google Maps reveals a location in Cologne, Germany, possibly where Nvidia's "Gaming celebration" will be held. With up to 4,608 CUDA cores, Turing supports up to 16 trillion floating point operations in parallel with 16 trillion integer operations per second.
Ltd., a world leader in advanced semiconductor technology, today announced that its 16-gigabit (Gb) Graphics Double Data Rate 6 (GDDR6) memory is being used in NVIDIA's new Turing architecture-based Quadro® RTX™ GPUs. They will be available in the fourth quarter of 2018. Confirmed yet again through the aforementioned video, Nvidia plans to showcase the new tech at its own event in the city. "Users can now enjoy powerful capabilities that weren't expected to be available for at least five more years", said Nvidia vice president Bob Pette in a statement.
