Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Galax OC 8GB
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

This computer hardware provides top end graphics. The GeForce RTX 2080 Galax OC 8GB will easily meet recommended system requirements of games released today. This is a strong benchmarker on modern games and can often return excellent frame rates at high and ultra 1080p. But the GeForce RTX 2080 Galax OC 8GB can also run 1440p pc system requirements.

This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 12.

What FPS performance can the GeForce RTX 2080 Galax OC 8GB get on latest AAA 2021 games? In particular our game review looks at the FPS achieved running on Ultra graphics settings on the 1080p screen resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. This card runs recommended graphics requirements of 997 games from the top 1000 most demanding games being played today.

Running at 1080p this card gets a good frame rate from Far Cry 6 with 61 FPS on Ultra. Then we take a look at Resident Evil 8 which returns a good 67 FPS. Another title that we looked at is the popular Back 4 Blood which we saw getting a strong 99 FPS.

Next up we increase screen res tests to accommodate the growing in popularity 1440p screen size. So we booted up Far Cry 6 to see how the GeForce RTX 2080 Galax OC 8GB dealt with it. It scored up a reasonable series of FPS results across these graphics presets - Low: 122 FPS, Medium: 96 FPS, High: 65 FPS and Ultra: 46 FPS. Next we looked at Resident Evil 8 which was reasonable with a 51 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And finally looked at Back 4 Blood that got an Ultra 1440p FPS of 75. In summary we feel the GeForce RTX 2080 Galax OC 8GB running at 1440p is one of the more powerful graphics cards for this monitor resolution. Games will be running with stable frame rates at Ultra on a 1440p setup. 4K gaming for a number of modern games should also be considered with this graphics hardware.

How many years will the GeForce RTX 2080 Galax OC 8GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce RTX 2080 Galax OC 8GB 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 Galax OC 8GB? 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 Galax OC 8GB.

Overview The GeForce RTX 2080 Galax OC 8GB is a High-End Graphics Card based on the Turing Architecture and is suitable for 1440p or 4K gaming. This is a dual-slot graphics card with twin 90mm fans, vapor chamber cooling, sturdy backplate, and RGB Effect lighting. This video card has average overclocking potential. Architecture It equips a Turing GPU Codenamed TU104. More specifically, it uses the TU104-400A-A1 variant which means factor overclocks are permitted. This is a First Gen Turing GPU and has 20 SM activated, offering 2944 Shader Processing Units, 184 TMUs, and 64 ROPs. The Turing architecture provides the world's first consumer support for real-time ray-tracing (RTX) technology. It also has 368 Tensor Cores for AI purposes. GPU The central unit runs at 1515MHz and goes up to 1785MHz in Turbo Mode, providing a 4% overclock compared to the reference specs and 1% slower clock speeds than the Founders Edition. Memory The GPU accesses an 8GB frame buffer of Second Gen GDDR6 through a 256-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 1750MHz, or 14GHz effective. Total memory bandwidth is 448 Gb/s. Power Consumption With a rated board TDP of 215W, it requires at least a 550W PSU with available 8-pin + 6-pin power connector. Performance The performance of the GeForce RTX 2080 is slightly faster than the GTX 1080 Ti, making it a suitable graphics card for 4K gaming. System Suggestions GeForce RTX 2080 Galax OC 8GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840x2160. We recommend a High-End Processor and 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
