In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Super Galax 8GB are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 4GB SLI.

The RTX 2080 has a 524 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 980, but the GTX 980 has 96 more Texture Mapping Units than the RTX 2080. As a result, the GTX 980 exhibits a 24.3 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the RTX 2080. 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 has a 524 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 980, but the GTX 980 has 64 more Render Output Units than the RTX 2080. As a result, the GTX 980 exhibits a 38.5 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the RTX 2080. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The RTX 2080 was released over three years more recently than the GTX 980, and so the RTX 2080 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 GeForce RTX 2080 Super Galax 8GB and the GeForce GTX 980 4GB SLI have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The RTX 2080 has 47.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 980, which means that the memory performance of the RTX 2080 is noticeably better than the GTX 980.

The GeForce RTX 2080 Super Galax 8GB has 3072 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 980 4GB SLI has 4096. However, the actual shader performance of the RTX 2080 is 5576 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 980 is 6724. The GTX 980 having 1148 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the RTX 2080 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

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

The GeForce RTX 2080 Super Galax 8GB requires 250 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 and a PSU with at least 750 Watts for the GTX 980. The GTX 980 requires 100 Watts more than the RTX 2080 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.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview The GeForce RTX 2080 Super Galax 8GB is a High-End Graphics Card based on the Turing Architecture. This is the 'Super' variant of the RTX 2080. Architecture It equips a Turing GPU Codenamed TU104-450-A11 which is a 2nd-Gen Turing GPU and has 48 SM activated, offering 3072 CUDA Shader Processing Units, 192 TMUs and 64 ROPs. The Turing architecture provides the world's first consumer support for real-time ray-tracing technology, or RTX. It is equipped with 384 Tensor Cores for AI purposes. GPU The central unit runs at 1650 MHz and goes up to 1815 MHz in Turbo Mode. Memory The GPU accesses an 8GB frame buffer of Second Gen GDDR6 through a 256-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 1940MHz, or 15.5GHz effective. Total memory bandwidth is 496.6GB/s. Power Consumption With a rated board TDP of 250W, it requires at least a 650W PSU with one available 8+6-pin power connector. Performance Performance of the GeForce RTX 2080 Super Galax 8GB puts it between the RTX 2080 and GeForce RTX 2080 Ti making it a suitable graphics card for 4K gaming. System Suggestions The GeForce RTX 2080 Super Galax 8GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840x2160. We recommend a high-end processor and 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.
