In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Titan RTX are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 MSI Gaming X 8GB Edition.

The GTX 1080 has a 358 MHz higher core clock speed than the Titan RTX, but the Titan RTX has 128 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 1080. As a result, the Titan RTX exhibits a 115.5 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GTX 1080. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 1080 has a 358 MHz higher core clock speed than the Titan RTX, but the Titan RTX has 32 more Render Output Units than the GTX 1080. As a result, the Titan RTX exhibits a 20.3 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GTX 1080. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The Titan RTX was released over a year more recently than the GTX 1080, and so the Titan RTX is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GTX 1080.

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 Titan RTX has 16384 MB more video memory than the GTX 1080, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the Titan RTX also has superior memory performance overall.

The Titan RTX has 348.7 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 1080, which means that the memory performance of the Titan RTX is massively better than the GTX 1080.

The Titan RTX has 4608 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 1080 MSI Gaming X 8GB Edition has 2560. However, the actual shader performance of the Titan RTX is 8156 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 1080 is 6383. The Titan RTX having 1773 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Titan RTX delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 1080.

The Titan RTX transistor size technology is 4 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 1080. This means that the Titan RTX is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 1080.

The Titan RTX requires 280 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 1080 MSI Gaming X 8GB Edition requires 180 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 650 Watts for the Titan RTX and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GTX 1080. The Titan RTX requires 100 Watts more than the GTX 1080 to run. The difference is significant enough that the Titan RTX may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 1080.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview The Nvidia Titan RTX is the 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 Turing TU102-400A-A1 which has 4608 Shader Processing Units, 288 TMUs, and 96 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1350MHz and goes up to 1750MHz in Boost mode. It also has 576 Tensor Cores for AI purposes and 72 RT Cores for real-time ray-tracing. Memory The GPU accesses a 24GB frame buffer of first-gen GDDR6 memory through a 384-bit memory interface, while the Memory clock operates at 1750MHz, or 14GHz effective. Power Consumption With a rated board TDP of 280W, it requires at least a 650W PSU with two 8-pin power connectors. System Suggestions Nvidia Titan RTX 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 1080 MSI Gaming X 8GB Edition is a Special Edition of NVIDIA's High-End GeForce GTX 1080, created by MSI.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit has been increased from 1607MHz to 1708MHz, whereas the Boost Clock can now achieve 1847MHz, instead of 1733MHz.

Overclock: Memory Clock
The Operating Memory Clock has been increased from 1250MHZ to 1263MHz.

Frame Buffer
Untouched.


Cooling Solution
Just like in games, the exclusive MSI TORX 2.0 Fan technology uses the power of teamwork to allow the TWIN FROZR VI to achieve new levels of cool. TORX 2.0 Fan design generates 22% more air pressure for supremely silent performance in the heat of battle.

Performance
At 1920x1080, Benchmarks Indicate a 5% Performance Boost over the Reference GeForce GTX 1080. This goes up to 7% at 3840x2160.
