RTX 2080 vs Radeon VII with i7-8700K vs i7-9700K at 1080p and high vs high settings

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.

AMD Radeon VII / i7-9700K

It is worth noting that the Radeon VII is a very power hungry card and requires a decent power supply unit. In terms of memory, the Radeon VII 's 16384 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks. It is important to know that Radeon VII 's max load temperature is very high and might require custom cooling solutions. Deciding whether to invest so much money in a high-end GPU like Radeon VII requires careful thought. 4K gaming is joyous on this Radeon VII , and with a little tweaking to your AA settings, it'd be hard to imagine a title not capable of 60 fps on average.
