Since yesterday’s reveal of the full Turing architecture, NVIDIA has set the stage for next week’s launch of GeForce RTX. Later that day, however, NVIDIA quietly announced that general availability of the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti will be delayed by a week, from September 20 to September 27. Preorders have also been affected, and those units will arrive between the 20th and 27th.

So for the launch of GeForce RTX, the GeForce RTX 2080 is left as the only card set for full availability, with the RTX 2070 slated to arrive in October. To recap, the RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition is priced at $1199, while non-Founders Edition cards will be $999. The RTX 2080 FE will come in at $799, with non-Founders Edition cards at $699. As always with new video card releases, expect prices to be inflated for weeks, if not months, after launch day; the recent cryptomining craze and knock-on inventory effects only makes the situation more complicated.

With launch day sell-outs becoming the norm for new video cards, this leans towards more of a inventory cause than anything else, as some preorders may still arrive on the 20th. Regardless, only the RTX 2080 remains listed and in-stock for preorder on NVIDIA's site. Stay tuned for next week's GeForce RTX review!

    It's not only video ads. Some websites auto-play a video of the same article you are there to read. Some websites would even play videos completely unrelated to the article.

    One of the worst offenders is forbes. I used to read their articles now and then but ever since they started auto-playing videos, I'd actively avoid opening their links whenever I see them in search results.

    I tried. I seriously tried. I disabled adblock because I like what Anandtech does. But there's so many ads that it's impossible. There's tons of ads on the side, but those are bearable. The stupid around the web things are annoying, but they're at the bottom so I don't really see them. But the addition of the video did it for me... I don't need some video ad followed by a video about stuff I already know eating up my battery that I have to manually close every single time.

    This has got to end with an ad-free subscription model. Regular readers just can't accommodate this level of ad distraction. It doesn't even make good tech sense -- high CPU and temps from the anandtech tabs forced me to re-enable adblock a few weeks ago. Really need a better way to support the site.

    Yeah....imagine that. But Anandtech would never do something so annoying. Would they?

    I had to disable UBlock to see what you were talking about. Why are you not blocking this stuff? They'll just keep shoving it down your throat until you take away their revenue. When it starts hitting them in the pocketbook they'll rethink the obnoxious ads.

    We want to support the site that we like. When ads like that appear, we want to tell the publisher what they're doing is not right. We will wait. If it's still appear after sometimes, we will remove from our whitelist.

    "To recap, the RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition is priced at $1199, while non-Founders Edition cards will be $999."

    This is a straight up lie. Straight from Nvidia and you're simply perpetrating the lie for them.
  • Dr. Swag - Sunday, September 16, 2018 - link

    The MSRP is $999; manufacturers can still choose to price it higher though (much like what we saw with the 1070, where a lot of the cards were closer to $450 than $379)

    Oh, it's going to get a lot better. There's a 10% tariff scheduled to hit PC components assembled in China (ie most of them) starting October 1 unless either Trump or Xi back down. Given the size of the ego's involved I don't see either leader doing so.

    Medium/long term at least some of the OEMs are looking at relocating final assembly to Taiwan or Mexico to avoid the hit, but in the short term building assembly lines and training up staff mean we won't see any immediate savings from them doing so.
  • Alistair - Sunday, September 16, 2018 - link

    It will get better. Almost every part in a video card sold here doesn't come from China, it's the final assembly. That's the wisdom of only having a trade war with one country at a time, there are many substitutes. I'll gladly buy a card finished in Taiwan or Korea. Or do it in Mexico or Vietnam.
