The Nvidia RTX 2070 is going to be available for pre-order starting next month and if you are interested in Nvidia real-time ray tracing then this is the bare minimum requirement for that.
While the release is a few weeks from now, we have a leaked Time Sky score of the Nvidia RTX 2070 that shows how far it lags behind the Nvidia RTX 2080. The Nvidia RTX 2070 is able to score 7713 in the VR benchmarks while the Nvidia RTX 2080 is able to score 9167 points. You can check out the scores of both cards as well as the benchmark below:

In both tests, the CPU is the same and is running at the same clock speeds so there will be minimal discrepancies there if any. It is also worth noting that a clock speed of 1875 is mentioned, which seems like the boost clock speed. This is something that we will need to confirm when the graphics cards come out.
At this point, we do not even know whether this was a custom graphics card or a reference design from Nvidia. Also, keep in mind that this is a leak and that when the graphics card comes out and proper drivers are available to support the hardware, the performance of the same Nvidia RTX 2070 could be much better.
The launch of Nvidia RTX cards has been lackluster indeed. The Nvidia RTX 2080 has been released but we have got nothing to test the card that offers Nvidia RTX Ray Tracing. Ray Tracing is a major selling point of these graphics cards but we still do not know how well they are going to perform with RTX on.
Other than that the Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti has been delayed twice, which is very odd indeed. We are not sure why that has happened but we will keep you updated when we do find out so stay tuned for more information regarding the matter.
With both the Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti and Nvidia RTX 2070 coming out next month, it will be interesting to see the kind of performance these cards have to offer as compared to the previous generation graphics cards as well as the competition.
