RTX 2080 with i7-8700K 1080p, 1440p, 4K benchmarks at Ultra Quality

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.

The good news is, with the release of the RTX 2080 Ti, the RTX 2080 's price is getting more discount. Unfortunately, gaming performance was not quite as impressive. Even if the RTX 2080 consistently delivers frame rate increases over the GTX 1080, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, the gain is not much to justify an upgrade.

For 1080p Full HD, we were able to play Red Dead Redemption 2, Assassin's Creed Odyssey, Metro Exodus, Borderlands 3, Anthem at 66 fps to 99 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 81 fps. For 1440p Quad HD, we were able to play Borderlands 3, Anthem, Hitman 2, Gears of War 5, Need For Speed: Heat at 62 fps to 81 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 76 fps.

For 2160p 4K, we were able to play F1 2019, World War Z, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, Battlefield V, Apex Legends at 63 fps to 68 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 66 fps.

Critics Reviews

Conclusion. Nvidia made it easy for us to fall in love with GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, the Turing-based flagship. ... Verdict. Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 2080 Founders Edition is a bit faster than the ...
The GeForce RTX 2080 is plenty fast and has untapped potential, but it's an expensive card that's ahead of its time. The technology crammed into the Nvidia Turing architecture is certainly ...
Straight off the bat, moving from the blower cooler to the dual fan coolers, we see that the RTX 2080 holds its temperature a lot better than the previous generation GTX 1080 and GTX 1080 Ti.
To date, NVIDIA has disclosed a number of details regarding its GeForce RTX series graphics cards, based on the bleeding-edge Turing GPU architecture. We covered NVIDIA’s official announcements ...
Our Verdict. It doesn't reach the heights of the RTX 2080 Ti, but Nvidia’s high-end Turing RTX GPU comes damn close to achieving 4K 60fps gaming for a mildly steep price.
The GeForce RTX 2080 Founder’s Edition has an MSRP of 9 and is now available (if you can find one) directly from Nvidia, or or on Amazon. IGN also put together a list of all the RTX GPUs you ...
Conclusion Our last PCI-Express scaling article was close to 20 months ago, with the GeForce GTX 1080 "Pascal," which we admit isn't exactly the predecessor of the RTX 2080 Ti, but was the fastest graphics card you could buy then.
Nvidia claims the new GeForce RTX 2080 graphics cards offer up to twice the performance of the predecessor GTX 1080, but that's assuming the game in question supports DLSS.
The GeForce RTX ™ 2080 is powered by the all-new NVIDIA Turing ™ architecture to give you incredible new levels of gaming realism, speed, power efficiency, and immersion. This is graphics reinvented.
As you can see, NVIDIA is claiming a roughly a 40 - 60 percent performance uplift for a Turing-based GeForce RTX 2080 versus the GTX 1080 right out of the gate, and that's with DLSS disabled.
Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 vs Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 architecture Back in 2016, the GTX 1080 was a showcase for Nvidia’s Pascal GPU architecture, which introduced the company’s 16nm FinFET process.
Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080: NVLink and SLI support . Fans of multi-GPU solutions will be glad to know that SLI is still around, and it's getting an upgrade in performance. Gone is the old SLI ...
