GeForce RTX 2080 Ti: a graphics card cut for 100 fps at 4K

The GeForce RTX 2080 Ti is Nvidia’s latest addition. This solution announced at over 1200 $ promises first-class performance but what can we expect?

Initial results have just been published.

The publication is signed by Techradar after they were given a shot at the product during the Gamescom exhibition of the GeForce GTX 2080 Ti.

According to them, Nvidia offers the first graphics card capable of providing a worry-free 4K definition. The article is very enthusiastic although it carries the mention of criticism around Nvidia’s new baby. In parallel, it has the merit of being one of the first to offer an overview of the possibilities of this GeForce RTX 2080 Ti.

This solution is positioned on the top of the range with the reputation to offer 60 fps under a 4k definition. At the moment no detailed independent tests are available due to the different NDAs imposed by Nvidia.  The preview is only from what is available at Gamescom 2018.

The feedback talks about the 4K and points out that for some games the results are positive with 100 FPS with graphics options on Ultra. The map is a Founders Edition. It is accompanied by an overclocking at the gearbox output of +90 MHz.

One of the titles named is Shadow of the Tomb Raider. This title is not a surprise since it was used by Nvidia to highlight its RTX (Ray Tracing) technology. It is to be noted that this title is at the origin of a polemic concerning the observed performances.

For the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, independent testing is required

This GeForce RTX 2080 Ti looks good at first glance, but some articles point to a controversial performance with RTX games. On this point, it is necessary to wait. Nvidia and the developers still have a few weeks to refine the drivers and the different patches.

If you attended the Nvidia conference, this presentation of the Geforce RTX 20 series focused on the RTX. Nvidia did not mention the performance of its new products in RTX titles or not. 

Most of its GeForce RTX 20s are already out of stock at several retailers. The demand is therefore there because of a morose graphics card market for some time. One of the rules is often to wait for a little because impatience is expensive. So before paying more than 1200 $ for his beloved PC, it is advisable to wait until the publication of independent tests, to get an overview of the behavior of his solutions in a software environment of everyone.
