GeForce RTX 2080 Ti MSI Lightning Z 11GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview GeForce RTX 2080 Ti MSI Lightning Z 11GB is a top-end RTX 20 Series graphics card and considered an Enthusiast graphics card based on the Turing architecture. This is a triple-slot graphics card with TRI-FROZR triple-fan cooling and excellent overclocking capabilities. 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 (RTX) technology. 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 1770MHz in Boost mode, offering a generous 15% overclock compared to the reference model. 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 three 8-pin power connectors. System Suggestions The GeForce RTX 2080 Ti MSI Lightning Z 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.
