Of the new born in the home nVidia, RTX 2080 and RTX 2080Ti, if it is really talking about it with all the innovations introduced would really need many specific articles! Unfortunately, time is a tyrant and time is running out and you are here to take a closer look at the graphs of our tests!

Immediately start refreshing the memory on the characteristics of the RTX 2080 and RTX 2080Ti and compare them with the homologues of the previous generation.


Spec RTX 2080 FE RTX 2080 GTX 1080
GPU architecture Turing Turing Pascal
Boost clock 1800 MHz (OC) 1710 MHz 1733 MHz
Frame buffer 8 GB GDDR6 8 GB GDDR6 8 GB GDDR5X
Memory speed 14 Gbps 14 Gbps 10 Gbps


Spec RTX 2080 Ti FE RTX 2080 Ti 1080 GTX Ti
GPU architecture Turing Turing Pascal
Boost clock 1635 MHz (OC) 1545 MHz 1582 MHz
Frame buffer 11 GB GDDR6 11 GB GDDR6 11 GB GDDR5X
Memory speed 14 Gbps 14 Gbps 11 Gbps

Passing to the benchmark machine, we have the following features:

  • Intel Core i7-6700 - 3.4GHz
  • 16GB DDR4 - 2133MHz
  • SSD KINGSTON 240GB SA400S37240G
  • Microsoft Windows 10 Professional (x64) Build 17134.285
  • Corsair power supply 600w

The machine has been formatted for the occasion and cleaned of additional cards and all mass memories have been disconnected.

For our tests we have chosen various games and tools:

To get a better overview and test the cards as widely as possible we have compared, GTX 970, GTX 1080, GTX 1080Ti, RTX2080 and RTX2080Ti each test was performed in 4k and FullHd.

Before proceeding to analyze the results, for those who want to draw conclusions, here are the rough values ​​we have obtained in our tests!

3D Mark with Time Spy

The test that proved to be definitely more interesting was the 3d mark, it had the advantage of really squeezing the cards to the maximum and providing the most uniform and '' predictable '' results.
We notice how the results are proportional and we begin to see how the evolution in brute force of the boards is quite linear, the very high values ​​in the full hd are resized in the 4k and the first result begins to take shape, the 2080 has performances comparable to the 1080Ti .

World of Tanks Encore

In these tests it is again evident how 2080 and 1080Ti deliver the same performance, at the same time in 4k we see how the 2080ti cuts off a good 40% the 1080Ti really interesting result, the test provides a numerical score that is not particularly detailed.

Honorable mention to the effects of water where, with the 970 you had a really informal blue liquid with the most powerful cards, a really superb yield was obtained.

FarCry 5

FarCry 5 confirms the trend already seen with a single anomaly in full hd where the gap between 1080 and 1080Ti failed, the test is very fast and is based on the account of rendered frames, as final fantasy. The graphic rendering is really accurate even if the test is very short and probably can not test all aspects of the cards.

Final Fantasy 15 Benchmark

The benchmark uses the frame count to render and with the massive use of effects it is after the 3D Mark the heaviest test performed.

Total War - Warhammer

Bioshock Infinite


In the graphs shown it is evident that in terms of performance and brute strength, each generation improves by about 30/40% compared to the previous one and it is also interesting to note that one of the most curious comparisons is represented by 1080ti against 2080 it emerged that a direct comparison , the two cards are almost equal in terms of performance, but there are more factors that make the RTX more efficient than a 1080ti, the 2080 provides all the novelties of the Turing architecture compared to the Pascal architecture is in a sense "Future Proof" also under stress, despite the similar performance, the 1080ti consumes on average about 80W more than a 2080, a notable difference. In any case, despite all the cards of the 10 and 20 series have been excellent in every test in FULLHD, in 4k the difference is felt and can really make the difference between a good gaming experience and a disaster and on this I invite you to watch the video saved from a realtime render with the 2080Ti.


You can download the video capture in 4k generated by our test with the 2080Ti, if you have an 4k monitor you can judge the result yourself.

I conclude the article with the ritual gallery to satisfy your "thirst" of RTX!
