BoyScout Sept. 19, 2018

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti are officially available. MSI sent us their new GeForce RTX 2080 Ti DUKE to find out how the new RTX 2080 Ti compares to the previous generation cards. NVIDIA provided early access to the RTX GPU drivers.


How do we benchmark?

We use our new automated test architecture, allowing us to create reliable and reproducible test runs.

Three common resolutions were used (when available): 1920x1080, 2560x1440, and 3840x2160. Each test scenario is run a minimum of 3 times. Between each run the system is allowed to cool to idle temperatures. We used the pre-release v.411.51 drivers from NVIDIA for all three cards. Build version and settings are listed with each result below.

the cards are nice, the prices are a joke

Hifihedgehog 11 points 6 months ago

Agreed. 80 Ti performance jump, Titan prices. Compared to the last gen’s launch prices, they effectively moved the 80 Ti tier to the Titan’s price point and the 80 tier to the 80 Ti’s price point. Well, when there is literally no competition from AMD up top, they have free reign. However, practically every next generation release for the last decade has consistently offered a better price-to-performance ratio— until now and the RTX 2000 series, that is, which is giving you basically the same or less performance at the same price points. This just makes me happier at this point I got a GTX 1080 Ti at $525 many months ago. Given how bad the state of the high-end is, this generation is just so forgettable.

cheezmeister 2 Builds 7 points 6 months ago

Same thing Intel was doing. Like, why would I buy an i7 7700 when a 2700 gets barely different fps in games for $300 less. Not to mention cheaper ram.

Takaragomy 2 points 1 month ago

Not really sure what you mean by $300 less when the i7-7700 is only $70 difference, and one of intel's worse price/performance models. A better comparison would be an i5-8600k which retails for $260, with the Ryzen 7 2700 which retails at $250, and if gaming is all you are interested in, the Intel provides about 16% better gaming performance for $10 more. In my Opinion, AMD is only worth buying either under $200, or for mid-high end workstations. Intel simply dominates the $200-500 range for gaming processors, with the exception of 2700X, but there are still better performers from Intel for cheaper.

cheezmeister 2 Builds 2 points 1 month ago

This was 5 months ago, you can assume prices were different (also I'm Canadian)

RoryEdits 1 point 10 days ago

Don't know what back country site you were referencing but USD wise the i7-7700 was 300 on launch date, so 300 cheaper is literally impossible, even considering the 1USD=1.33CAD. That would mean what ever ryzen you would be comparing is be at most 100 CAD, which would ultimately still be a lower price than the Ryzen 1200 as of today.

RoryEdits 1 point 10 days ago

Lets completely skip over the fact that the 2700 was also released almost a year and a half later than the 7700.

Gentleman00 2 Builds 6 points 6 months ago

The time we waited is also a joke... Wasted my time, waiting for RTXes. Been trying to replace my R9 270X for over 3 years now... :(

I am literally in the same boat. I'm about to order a 2060 just because the price appeals to me for playing world of warships at 120fps....

I'm also considering one, but still thinking about whenever should I buy it.

Type62pyro 3 points 6 months ago

Really though. I do have to say that the mid range cards for the price and performance are actually pretty reasonable.

puppy_punter 1 Build 7 points 6 months ago

for all the announced cards, turing has a worse price to performance than pascal, and this is the first time in history that this is the case

Type62pyro 1 point 6 months ago


Yuva_Boss 2 points 6 months ago

so true, why release when there are no ray tracing optimized games?

KNOCHOS 1 Build 6 points 6 months ago

I think that is the problem with these cards. They probably had to release RTX cards for there to be RTX games made.

3Prcntr 1 Build -12 points 7 months ago

did you expect different? This is a yearly thing. Prices go up, our pay goes down. Aint capitalism great? That said... I want one.

Hifihedgehog 2 points 6 months ago

Paying at Titan prices for only 80 Ti performance like a brand zealot. ;) Compared to last gen’s launch prices (not current, mind you), 80 Ti is now in the Titan price bracket, the 80 is in the 80 Ti, and the 70 is in the 80. Meanwhile, the RTX 2080 is basically an overclocked GTX 1080 Ti at best with prices significantly higher. Don’t get me wrong: my GTX 1080 Ti was amazing for the price. You naturally expect, however, next gen products to always offer more performance per dollar than their predecessors. It has been that way for the last decade at least—until now and RTX 2000 series, that is, which is giving you basically the same or less performance at the same price points.

I feel like they should have held off until around mid- to late- 2019 to release RTX and maybe they could have made another generation of GTX cards.

No its not... the price to performance ratio of the 2080ti compared to the 1080ti is absurd,

Torx402 1 Build 9 points 6 months ago

My 1070Ti will serve me just fine for my needs :)

Starlight1993 1 point 4 months ago

Same, I'm not playing their little game with these cards. I luck'd out with paying $385 1070 ti. Do I think that's a reasonable price, YES!!!!! It's rather unfortunate that it is now in the $500s....it's almost criminal if you ask me.

Val80 1 point 4 months ago

What do you use the 1070ti for? Considering buying one.

Torx402 1 Build 2 points 3 months ago

Sorry for the late reply, kinda busy with studies, I use it to play 1080p games without any issues to be worried of, kinda overkill, but it's a great card.

ragontx 8 points 7 months ago

Nvidia just took a page out of Apples playbook. Specially this year that both products offer almost not increase of performance or features but price is astronomical. Yes the crypto guys have something to do with it but lets be honest, there typical consumer of GPU's still playing fornite, orverwatch, WoW , DOTA and other more commercially pleasing games at 1080/1440 with a 144hgz monitor. I would hold t hat 1080ti until these cards become better with patches or just skip the generation. 20% or less performance increase is a joke for the prices. Like a said they took a page out of Apples book. Right now if you have a iphone x there is no reason to upgrade lol ..same here if you have a 1080ti just seat this one on save your hard earned money . On the other hand if you have stocks now you know that nvidia and apple will be very good performers until you retire because crypto is here to stay and people just want shinny new things simple as that lol ..

zrhaskell 4 points 6 months ago

That's fine. It'll just give AMD the opportunity to build a more budget friendly card and force Nvidia to step up.

JimmyJimmy 4 points 5 months ago

RTX cards are for people who want the very best GPUs available, not some budget friendly alternative. If you want something that offers better price to performance, just go with a 1080 or 1080 ti, or wait until Nvidias next generation of ray tracing cards. RTX cards are so expensive because they have capabilities GTX cards do not, such as ray tracing and support for nvlink, not to mention the brand new turing architecture and founders edition card design. Everything is new and exciting and as long as people are willing to sell their kidneys to pay for something they dont need Nvidia is not going to lower their prices and AMD is not going to be able to compete in the GPU market unless they find a way to make their cards better than Nvidia and make them more expensive too.

zrhaskell 1 point 5 months ago

Obviously, you missed my point.

3Prcntr 1 Build 2 points 6 months ago

I am just more shocked at how many people did not see this crap coming from a mile away after the 10 series. What a joke. And they will still buy it too.

LibriLector 1 Build 5 points 6 months ago

The only good reasons I can see to get a new gpu are for better 4k gaming so you can keep the fps at 60 in more games. In this case you probably already shelled out for a nice 4k monitor or something and you probably have the money for a 2080ti. The other reason is for real time ray tracing, but we haven't seen any benchmarks for that yet because it isn't even out in any games.

In other words, there is no reason to get the 20 cards now unless your filthy rich, or have ocd about frame drop on your 4k monitor. They're both legit reasons. If I had the money for a 4k setup I might want to upgrade.

I think 90% of the people buying the 20 series cards are actually the third category, Nvidia fanboys who are addicted to the bleeding edge.

3Prcntr 1 Build 2 points 6 months ago

100% agree. Same reason Apple does so well. Sad to see this market corruption transfer over from apple products and consoles to our PC world.

Eltech 20 Builds 3 points 7 months ago

Thanks so much for sharing these benchmarks. The more I view all three resolutions (1080p, 1440p, 2160p), the more I'm glad that I didn't purchase the RTX 2080 Ti. I don't see a major FPS difference between the GTX 1080 Ti and the RTX 2080 Ti. Plus the peak temperature differences is really interesting there * hint hint at GTX 1080 Ti * .

Maybe that'll change over time or its different results with the latest games as seen with the Shadow of Tomb Raider (plus some other older games yet varies there too) that can use some of the new features, but I'm not willing to spend that much either for a RTX 2080 Ti. I'm not really disappointed just thankful to see some benchmarks and confirming my decision to wait again. Thanks again for sharing this.

daUnitedpotato 1 Build 3 points 7 months ago

The more benchmarks I see, the more happy I become with my 1080. The difference in average FPS really isn't as big as they hyped it up to be. It's a straight up money grab, and it shows. Plus I'm sure as soon as RTX is turned on, these cards are gonna suffer in terms of FPS and temperatures.

Wolklung 2 points 6 months ago

For sure. Obviously it comes down to everyone's budget... But I think the 1080 has slid into the sweet spot for price/performance for a lot of people. It's still a real beast!

AnonymouslyQuacked 1 point 7 months ago

True, True.

ryansmission 5 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

No doubt - love my 1080. It's still the 1440p king!

ktulu85 1 Build 1 point 6 months ago

I have a GTX 770 and looking to upgrade. I'm not sure what to do now. Get a 10 series card or a 20 series card.

daUnitedpotato 1 Build 1 point 6 months ago

It depends on what you're looking for, really. If you're wanting that super realistic looking gameplay, get a 20-series for sure. But if you're just wanting good FPS and good detail on the environment itself, get a 1080 or 1080 Ti.

I have an MSI Gaming X 1080 and a 1440p monitor, I still get 120+ FPS average on every game I play on high or ultra (depending on optimization, of course). Plus now that the 20-series cards are out, 10-series are gonna go down in price which is amazing cause they're all still really reliable and powerful cards.

IngeniousTinkerer 3 points 7 months ago

I'd expect to see the results change a bit as more games gain support and drivers improve, considering this is a relatively new implementation of this technology. I don't think the actual performance differences will be enough to upgrade until next generation. By then more games will have more support and drivers will be tried and tested.

tech_geek100 1 Build 3 points 6 months ago

wait, why does the TI make this model so expensive when the non Ti founders edition chops the price tag in half. I know Ti adds a few vram and other stuff to the equation but why does it double the price? I mean even the founders edition 2080 ti is measurably cheaper.

zeropaladn 2 Builds 2 points 7 months ago

What's the thought process that went behind the game choices for this bench? Ashes and Tomb Raider are easy picks given everyone does them, Hitman seems to be the AMD magic game, and... DotA?

BoyScout staff submitter 21 Builds 6 points 7 months ago

Fair question. There was an unfortunate delay that resulted in us receiving our card at the last minute. So given a pretty short window (1 day) to bring up these results, we had to be fairly picky on the included test set for this post.

As such, we kicked out (as you might expect) any of our typical tests that are more CPU focused/constrained, but we kept DOTA2 because it at least showed some interesting movement at 4K where these new cards are targeted. We selected SotTR, Ashes and Hitman as titles being touted as showing improvements with RTX cards. FireStrike Ultra was kept as our synthetic bench of choice for now.

We unfortunately dropped some of our other popular requests like Siege 6 / Wildlands benchmarks due to time, but intend to continue testing and perhaps provide further results once we get our hands on a 2080 for further comparison.

I hope that helps with the rationale. It wasn't perfect, but we wanted to be reasonable with the time we had. Are there any games you think we should prioritize including with our GPU testing? We're always open to suggestions.

tragiktimes101 1 Build 6 points 6 months ago

I, personally, would like to see the inclusion of some VR titles to see a comparison between the current lineup and last gen cards.

SmileyOne 2 points 7 months ago

Any reason why you guys didn't include the 2080?

BoyScout staff submitter 21 Builds 7 points 7 months ago

Mostly because we don't have one yet. ;)

MSI was kind enough to send us the 2080 Ti so we could do these benchmarks. As soon as we get an 2080 in hand, we intend to run it through the gauntlet and see how it fairs.

Sad. Never getting my money again. I knew it was coming. After last year and the prices it takes to build a PC now, this market is a joke.

So essentially the only real difference is once you jump to true 4K. Extremely overhyped imo, I’d rather sli two 1070tis or 1080s for the same price but that’s not my decision to make.

OmegaOverclock 2 points 6 months ago

I wonder what the 2050 and 2060 prices will be like and if they have the same SLI performance as the 2080 and 2080 Ti. If anything actually improved this generation it’s that sli isn’t a complete money grab anymore, the performance increase is almost worth the money. If it’s like that on the 2050 and 2060 I might buy two of them. Never know though.

BuildBoy12 1 Build 2 points 6 months ago

Nvidia is trying to slowly rid of SLI in the newer generation cards sadly. Not even the 2070 having SLI compatibility is a blow.

dapopeah 2 points 6 months ago

Bleeding edge tech. Absolutely nothing out there yet optimized for the compute changes and code difference for the Ray tracing. Price jump, because, well, the new one has to be more costly than the old one, right?

I withhold judgement until at least one Qtr of development cycle post-release.

OmegaOverclock 2 points 6 months ago


mvickers89 1 Build 2 points 6 months ago

Thanks for putting this together, PCPP. Do you guys feel this is worth the purchase at those prices? Especially for the ray tracing technology that many games do not have compatibility with? (I realize its a future visual adjustment that may be in games in the future - but it may not even take hold).

MasterfulJoe101 2 points 6 months ago

It looks to me that the price hike compared to the 1080ti and in come cases even compared to the 1080, when you consider the very marginal increase in performance, especially compared to the 1080ti, results in an expensive new piece of hardware that isn't at all worth it based on these results compared to the previous gen cards. Could be the drivers, could be the card really isn't worth it. Though that's up to the consumer purchasing the card to decide. That's just my opinion, I think the 1080 and 1080ti are a far better value, unless you REALLY want real time ray tracing support.

Benster7703 2 points 6 months ago

I'm still a console peasant, but why would any PC gamer want to spend an enormous amount of money on the RTX 2080 when they can turn the resolution down to 1440p and still get over 60fps? Most games will still do 4k 60fps just fine with a 1080TI anyway, and Shadow of the Tomb Raider only needs the extra power because its new and graphically demanding. But unless you are building a PC for max settings on post 2018 games, a 1080TI will do just fine.

bigwalt 4 points 6 months ago

I being a former console gamer, I fully understand where you are coming from. I didn't get it until I actually saw the difference with my own eyes. Its like this... while playing DOOM I can get up to 180fps on ULTRA settings at 1440p/100MHZ. Once you get used to that you cannot go back. I tried firing up the PS4 version of the same game and couldn't get past the first level. Its just a totally different feel/experience. I just spent $3000 on a new rig. To me its worth it.

bigwalt 2 points 6 months ago

I'll just stick with my STRIX 1080ti OC edition thank you!

YaBoiLilZachy 0 points 5 months ago

Definitely a good decision, the extra performance is almost non-existent and there's one RTX game. Not worth the $1200

Its1ds 2 points 6 months ago

The price is WAY too high for the extra performance, I personally think all you need is a GTX 970/980/980 Ti, as they are pretty cheap on the used market, at least out here in the Netherlands (~120/~170/~220), which is great for 1080p (970), 1440p (980) and even 4K with the 980 Ti.

HeronLabs 2 points 6 months ago

That can’t justify the price at all

Oberdan 2 points 6 months ago

In my humble opinion, these benchmarks probably sold more 1080 Ti's than the newer RTX 2080 Ti's. I can fully understand the pricey sticker shock, but there is another aspect for an opportunity. Saving up the funds now for a possible price drop during Black Friday, and it's not that far off. If the prices do not come down far enough, and they Scrooge out on us for Christmas (Twice as long to save up the funds) and it's still too much, then a 1080 Ti will suffice. The money saved will keep me in Pizza mode for a nice long time.

newcomer52 2 points 5 months ago

New cards are nice, but I'm still only planning on upgrading to a 1080 Ti.

Socialkonstruct 4 Builds 2 points 5 months ago

The high failure rate of these cards make me super leery of ever wanting one. Plus I am more of an AMD fan.

andywattsnz 2 points 5 months ago

I don't see the point in comparing GTX against RTX.? Benchmarking latest hardware tech on what is now yesterday's software tech. DLSS, Tensor cores, DDR6 vs DDR5 that's called game over. On saying that the GTX 1080 ti is still an awesome card, and will be for sometime, until Ray Trace games are out. Then we'll see the RTX cards kick in.

tragiktimes101 1 Build 1 point 7 months ago

Nice write up. Excited to see more.

LIVE_AMMO 1 point 7 months ago

Well its pretty clear why NVIDIA made no prior mention of benchmark comparisons. A better GPU indeed, but seriously at that price point, the GTX 2080 TI is a diss of a disappointment!

What happened with the "new architectural breakthrough" - dropping bombshells coupled with rumoured performance margins which were simply too good to be true. The only breakthrough I see with the RTX is pointless features and an apple-like astronomical price insurgency. I hope those hardworking and optimist pre-order recipients are content (genuinely) and as for crypto-miners and spend-splash spoilers - no comment!.

tony475130 1 point 7 months ago

Nice! Good simple post on the hard performance numbers! Basically a 2080ti performns between 20-30% better on average to a 1080ti. Its good but that price premium is a no go for me. 1080ti still a good value if your not too hardcore on having the absolute bleeding edge hardware.

_Roller_ 1 point 7 months ago

Give us some new build videos my dudes, I'm missing the content.

rhali8 2 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

Pretty much as I expected. Too much of the GPU's budget is going towards those RTX cores, which really draws back the value when you look at it from a raw FPS outputting point of view. That's why I don't think these cards are mainstream GPUs, NVIDIA made a mistake of marketting them as one.

Thanks for the benchmarks (:

Can you test Dota 2 using Vulkan? Supposedly that's where Nvidia put a lot of effort into async compute.

BoyScout staff submitter 21 Builds 5 points 6 months ago

Sure, that should be doable -- I'll see if we can run the numbers on that early next week.

mmcconkey 1 point 7 months ago

I agree, I run a 980ti in 4k using Vulkan to play Dota 2 all the time. It would be nice if they would throw the 980ti or 1070 into these comparisons as well so I would know exactly where I stand with these new cards.

Wait a while, if AMD gets their stuff together and manages to put up a really good fight and better graphics card, maybe NVIDIA will actually remember their main source of income is from the lower guys and lower the prices. Never know though, I say wait 3-6 months so the launch prices deflate a little, hopefully a mining craze doesn’t strike soon. The already fragile pc economy just might break if another craze happens. I hope the whole tech market crashes, because if it does the companies are going to have to compete for the consumers money again and the prices will plummet. Never know though... Never know...

RTX 2080TI should be a great card... Maybe?

MakelYT 1 point 6 months ago

So I guess i'll be waiting till next gen to upgrade.

Wow, 1080 Ti seems to outperform the 2080 in a few scenarios on 2560x1440. Pretty comparable actually and runs slightly cooler even!

RTX or 180 TI for Gaming

Thanks for the benchmarks.

Instead of focusing on RTX nvidia should've released another gtx series then later released a version of those with RTX, RTX is too weak

If you have the money it's worth it in my graphics-loving framerate-***** opinion, but most people don't have the kind of money to spend, so just get a 10606GB or an RX 500 card and you'll be happy. 1080 SLI is also a good choice.

Also, I'm a 3D artist and realtime raytracing has been a dream of mine for years so it's totally worth it for me. Plus DLSS is amazing if you want to play at higher resolutions. I'm a really specific demographic where the RTX 2080 Ti is awesome, but most people don't need RTX.

The price is the main problem. Why pay $1200+ for a 2080TI when I can pay 1/2 to 2/3 of that cost for a custom 1080TI, it just doesn't seem logical. If anything I'll just go with the RTX 2070... GTX 1080 like performance and a similar price point with the addition of GDDR6 and Ray Tracing (even though it's barely supported).

Need some more demanding games for your benchmarks. Like Ghost Recon Wildlands, Assassin's Creed Origins & Odyssey, Kingdom Come: Deliverance, ArmA 3, etc.

Im new to Pc and Pc buliding but isn't the RXT 2070 cheaper and faster than the GTX 1080. I think that the 2070 is put aside for the big brother cards 2080 and 2080Ti.

Whats better or worse percentage change of the RTX 2070 Compared to the 1080 Ti?

Hadouken007 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

Bought myself a msi 1080ti gaming x for $520 on Ebay used and from the reviews others bought it was like new and so was mine not a lick of dirt on it, and it work with no problem, screw those 2080 prices.

The first and last time NVIDIA GPUs were worth $1000+ was when the GTX 690 was released. That was 7 years ago even before the first Titan cards surfaced. In fact, it was the pinky toe in the proverbial high price swimming pool for NVIDIA, the card that started this upward trend. The difference between that card and the RTX series is that the price vs performance for the new RTX line is a joke by comparison.

My 690 GTX is still running strong in my son's PC, the same PC I built back in 2012. He is able to play every game out there, maybe not at ultra high settings but definitely not at low settings. The performance level of the 690 is between the 1060 and 1070 performance wise. When was the last time a GPU lasted 7 years?

When built a new system for myself in 2017 I jumped on the 1080 non-ti version as it had the best price vs performance at the time. Purchased through EVGA when they went on sale just before the 1080ti release and less than 3 months after purchasing the ti variant came out I was able to upgrade for only $100. A magnificent deal.

I blame AMD, personally. NVIDIA is only doing what every company has done in similar situations. AMD's latest GPU release in Jan was lackluster, again missing the mark for top tier performance. AMD needs to make NVIDIA sweat like they are making Intel sweat on the CPU side of the house. Competition will make prices come down eventually, but only if there "is" competition. Till then I'll just hang onto my 1080ti. Maybe down the road when AMD truly challenges NVIDIA I'll consider retiring the 690 and handing down my 1080ti to my son.

From a price/performance perspective, it's not a waste at all. Looking at the marks for the 2080 Ti, you're still getting better performance for the $$.

still a beast

Unless you're dead-set on getting an RTX, I'd wait... Not seeing enough improvement to justify the $$. But that's just me.
