According to a fresh batch of rumors, the next-gen NVIDIA cards will have a new naming scheme. As per YouTube channel AdoredTV, the upcoming Turing GPUs will be named GeForce RTX 2080 and RTX 2070, instead of GTX 2080/1180 and 2070/1170, respectively.

Earlier NVIDIA registered for the Turing trademark, confirming that the GPU manufacturer will have hardware codenamed after the famous computer scientist in the future.

However the speculation doesn’t end here. Team green also applied for two new RTX trademarks, namely Quadro RTX and GeForce RTX. In case you weren’t aware, RTX is going to be NVIDIA’s version of ray-tracing tech. So, unless NVIDIA isn’t looking to trademark the software/framework alone, RTX will possibly replace GTX as the prefix for the two high-end GeForce cards.

The channel AdoredTV also showed screenshots that it claims is from the official reveal presentation for the upcoming Turing GPUs. You may watch the complete video below:

My interests range from Human Psychology to Computer Hardware. I'm a perfectionist and I only settle for the best, both when it comes to work and play. Yeah I know I'm no fun at parties. I started TechQuila with a friend as a hobby and currently I'm the Editor-in-Chief here. I'm also pursuing a degree in Engineering and write mainly for the Gaming and Hardware sections, although every once in a while I like to test my skills in the other categories too.

  1. %50 faster than a Ti……??!! Well then I guess a purchase is just a no brainer… As this card would imply 4k gaming at a minimum 60fps all day long.
