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!

    Imagine if Anandtech delayed playing those fucking auto-loading buy the right CPU videos which are never actually about CPUs, it keeps showing me some retarded travel shit that I have no interest in.

    Yea it is a fucking joke, I don't click on it but as soon as I scroll down the advert pops up in the middle of my screen and forces me to click on it to close it, as soon as I click on the next page it starts all over again, spoiling the well written articles.
    It literally blocks part of the article..what a joke!.

    Plug the following into your hosts file (c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts), you'll probably need to open it as an administrator, and save:

    You're welcome.

    Doesn't an ad blocker do the same thing?
  • alacard - Sunday, September 16, 2018 - link

    It does, but this is faster. It stops requests before they even reach your browser, so your adblock doesn't have to expand resources to block them.

    I consider receiving adds like the one described above as being on the receiving end of an abusive relationship, and I act accordingly.

    Anandtech, your move.

    Debatable, a hosts file only redirects requests to nowhere, the browser still has to make the requests for the OS to use the hosts file to redirect them. A good ad blocker will stop the browser from even making the requests to ad servers in the first place, probably the only difference is which one can process its list faster. But ad blockers are somewhat at a disadvantage here because they can block all or any portion of a URL and can use multiple lists instead of being limited to only domain names in one single file like the OS hosts file. But I'd say it is a good trade off for the automatically updating blacklists ad blockers offer, no need to keep updating the hosts file or run a separate utility that does it for you.

    uOrigin - I'm OK with adds but autoplay vidoes is what makes me go and visit other sites - Anandtech is on the verge of getting cut from the sites I browse because of this.

    It's sort of funny in a depressing way to see that readers now regularly generate lots of comments about auto playing videos rather than the contents of the articles. I'd love to continue to support Anandtech since the editors write good articles, but I had to strip the site from my whitelist because I couldn't stand the reader-abusive, stupid auto play video that gets shoveled onto us. Adblocked AT is cleaner, but the lack of ads has also made me start to realize how little actual content I was getting for bothering to read articles and deal with all of the ads to begin with.

    Seriously, I'm all for supporting content producers but once these kind of obnoxious ads have repeatedly appeared on a site (Anandtech isn't the only one) I consider my obligations null and void.

    Well, millenials don't watch TV so the only way to put ads down their throat is with internet.

    I also use noscript. At some point, one of these ads installed malaware on my machine, or tried I should say. Since that time, I am trying to block as much popups as possible.
