Our Verdict: Upgrading from RTX 2070 to RTX 2080 is not recommended as it is less than 30% of improvement in performance. In general, a reasonable upgrade is between 30% and 50% or more to justify the purchase of new hardware. The price/performance ratio is much better for RTX 2070 .

RTX 2070 vs RTX 2080 with i7-8700K vs i7-8700K at 1080p and ultra vs ultra settings

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 / i7-8700K

In terms of memory, the RTX 2070 's 8192 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks. 4K gaming is joyous on this RTX 2070 , and with a little tweaking to your AA settings, it'd be hard to imagine a title not capable of 60 fps on average.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 / i7-8700K

It is worth noting that the RTX 2080 is a very power hungry card and requires a decent power supply unit. In terms of memory, the RTX 2080 's 8192 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks. Deciding whether to invest so much money in a high-end GPU like RTX 2080 requires careful thought. 4K gaming is joyous on this RTX 2080 , and with a little tweaking to your AA settings, it'd be hard to imagine a title not capable of 60 fps on average.
