How well can the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti MSI Sea Hawk EK X 11GB run games
14 Oct 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

A true powerhouse, the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti MSI Sea Hawk EK X 11GB will run even the most demanding game system requirements released today. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 12 requirement.

Here is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2020. In particular we focus on how well the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti MSI Sea Hawk EK X 11GB runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. This card runs recommended graphics requirements of 998 games from the top 1000 most demanding games being played today.

A GeForce RTX 2080 Ti MSI Sea Hawk EK X 11GB card at 1080p is predicted to see a good frame rate when running Assassins Creed: Valhalla on Ultra - 68 FPS. Lets look at the predicted performance it will get on Grand Theft Auto VI which is 72 FPS. To add a bit more variety lets see how the popular Genshin Impact performs on this hardware, which gets a strong 101 FPS.

Next up we increase screen res tests to accommodate the growing in popularity 1440p screen size. So we researched the upcoming Assassins Creed: Valhalla to predict how the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti MSI Sea Hawk EK X 11GB would deal with it. Our research revealed a reasonable series of FPS results across these graphics presets - Low: 104 FPS, Medium: 89 FPS, High: 77 FPS and Ultra: 52 FPS. Next we looked at Grand Theft Auto VI which we predict will be reasonable with a 55 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And finally looked at Genshin Impact that got an Ultra 1440p FPS of 77. 1440p gaming on the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti MSI Sea Hawk EK X 11GB is a very good hardware option at these screen sizes. Ultra is easily achieved across almost all games at 1440p and we would suggest an increase of screen size up to 4K for this graphics card.

How many years will the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti MSI Sea Hawk EK X 11GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti MSI Sea Hawk EK X 11GB in your PC? No graphics card upgrade required for 2 to 3 years of meeting top end game system requirements

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti MSI Sea Hawk EK X 11GB? There are no graphics cards on the current market that would provide a big enough increase in performance to warrant upgrading the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti MSI Sea Hawk EK X 11GB.

GeForce RTX 2080 Ti MSI Sea Hawk EK X 11GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce RTX 2080 Ti MSI Sea Hawk EK X 11GB is a top-end RTX 20 Series graphics card and considered an Enthusiast graphics card based on the Turing architecture. This is a dual-slot graphics card with an EK full-cover water block for silent water cooling, nickel-plated base, Mystic Light RGB 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 TU102-300A-K1-A1 which has 4352 Shader Processing Units, 272 TMUs, 88 ROPs, and factory overclock is permitted. The central unit runs at 1350MHz and goes up to 1755MHz in Boost mode, offering a 14% overclock over 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 250W, it requires at least a 650W PSU with two 8-pin and one 6-pin power connectors.


System Suggestions
The GeForce RTX 2080 Ti MSI Sea Hawk EK X 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.
