Nvidia RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti Review

The Turing architecture is the latest in a long line of nVidia GPUs, bringing AI and real-time Ray Tracing to the party. We put it through our benchmark suite and see what it has to offer.



Read our Nvidia RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition review.

So at 1440P the 2080 Ti is a 10-20FPS gain over a 1080 Ti, About what I expected to be honest, Definitely not worth 1100 quid though.

Yep. I'm confident I'm going to skip this generation and wait for the next. Quite happy with the 1080 Ti's performance. Besides G-Sync kinda makes those ekstra 20 fps irrelevant anyway

Not if you're also running a 144Hz monitor, I guess. But still pretty interesting numbers.

Seems like the 1080Ti becomes very attractive now if its price drops rapidly and by a huge amount, if you don't wanna jump on the Raytracing hypetrain and need an upgrade for your 1080p144hz monitor :P

I look at this and find it heart breaking that Nvidia could not just make a RT card for every one other than 20 series owners. IE, instead of being greedy and expecting us all to upgrade (which most of us won't for various reasons) they have left us out completely.

Even if the cards were twice as fast as their predecessors I could not justify that price. Mostly because the predecessors are more than good enough for everything other than RT.

So Nvidia want me to pay £1200 for RT. That's stupid. It's like me having a car and the engine blows and I am expected to buy a whole new car instead of just swapping out the engine.

A part of me hopes that people can have the restraint, and show Nvidia what a bad decision this is. Sadly I doubt it, which is part of the reason why I game mostly on a console now.

Thanks for the review and all of your hard work Tom & co.

Doesn't matter if you're running 100-165 Hz when using G-Sync, you still won't feel much of a difference, if any at all. It's at the lower fps between 45 and 60 G-Sync really shines, but anything above 60 is really not going to do much, unless you're a GS:GO player and just wants massive fps. But then again they probably wouldn't be using G-Sync anyway, as it's pointless for those people since they have Fast sync now

Edit: Fast sync which is available with most 10xx series nvidia cards (maybe 900 series as well?), removes tearing just as v-sync does, but without the added input lag. It's not perfect, but it works *really* well with a 60 Hz screen.

Sadly we all know certain people in the PC community who buy 2, 3 even 4 of each GPU that Nvidia releases no matter how much of a bad decision it is.
