In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Asus Dual OC 11GB are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 4GB SLI.

The RTX 2080 Ti has a 224 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 980. This results in the RTX 2080 Ti providing 78.9 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The RTX 2080 Ti has a 224 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 980, but the GTX 980 has 40 more Render Output Units than the RTX 2080 Ti. As a result, the GTX 980 exhibits a 25.3 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the RTX 2080 Ti. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The RTX 2080 Ti was released over three years more recently than the GTX 980, and so the RTX 2080 Ti is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GTX 980 when running the latest games.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The RTX 2080 Ti has 3072 MB more video memory than the GTX 980, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the RTX 2080 Ti also has superior memory performance overall.

The RTX 2080 Ti has 167.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 980, which means that the memory performance of the RTX 2080 Ti is massively better than the GTX 980.

The GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Asus Dual OC 11GB has 4352 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 980 4GB SLI has 4096. However, the actual shader performance of the RTX 2080 Ti is 7116 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 980 is 6724. The RTX 2080 Ti having 392 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the RTX 2080 Ti delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 980.

The RTX 2080 Ti transistor size technology is 16 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 980. This means that the RTX 2080 Ti is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 980.

The GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Asus Dual OC 11GB requires 260 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 980 4GB SLI requires 350 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 650 Watts for the RTX 2080 Ti and a PSU with at least 750 Watts for the GTX 980. The GTX 980 requires 90 Watts more than the RTX 2080 Ti to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 980 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the RTX 2080 Ti.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Asus Dual OC 11GB is a top RTX 20 Series graphics card and considered an Enthusiast graphics card based on the Turing architecture. Architecture The Turing architecture represents a process shrink down to 12nm compared to 14nm Pascal. The Turing architecture provides the world's first consumer support for real-time ray-tracing technology, or RTX. GPU It equips a GPU Codenamed TU102 which has 4352 Shader Processing Units, 272 TMUs and 88 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1350MHz and goes up to 1545MHz in Boost mode. It also has 544 Tensor Cores for AI purposes. Memory The GPU accesses an 11GB frame buffer of first-gen GDDR6 memory through a 352-bit memory interface, while the Memory clock operates at 1750MHz, or 14GHz effective. Power Consumption With a rated board TDP of 285W, it requires at least a 650W PSU with two 8-pin power connectors. System Suggestions The GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Asus Dual OC 11GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840x2160. We recommend a top-End Processor and at least 16GB of RAM for optimal performance.Overview
GeForce GTX 980 4GB SLI is a solution of two GeForce GTX 980 4GB put together using NVIDIA's SLI technology.

Architecture
The Second variant of the Maxwell Architecture, despite being also manufactured with a 28nm technology, has an extremely large L2 Cache and features a Third Generation Delta Color Compression which allows NVIDIA to produce Graphics Cards with relatively small memory data transfer rates, without causing too much impact on the overall performance. Furthermore, the Shaders have been redesigned and are both more powerful and energy efficient.

GPU
It consists of 2 GPUs codenamed GM204-400-A1 which, together, offer 4096 Shader Processing Units, 256 TMUs and 128 ROPs, on a 512-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit runs at 1126MHz and goes up to 1216MHz, in Turbo Mode, while the memory clock operates at 1753MHz.

Power Consumption
Power Consumption lies between 300W and 400W.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks prove that at 4K (3840x2160) GeForce GTX 980 4GB SLI is over 7% faster than AMD's Radeon R9 295X2.

System Suggestions
We recommend a very strong processor (Intel Core i7 Six Core/AMD FX Eight Core) and 16GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GTX 980 4GB SLI.
