How well can the GeForce RTX 2080 Galax SG Edition 8GB run games
Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Galax SG Edition 8GB
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

This computer hardware provides top end graphics. The GeForce RTX 2080 Galax SG Edition 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 SG Edition 8GB can also run 1440p pc system requirements.

This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 12.

Lets look at the GeForce RTX 2080 Galax SG Edition 8GB game performance guide for some of the biggest games played in 2021. In particular we will see how well this graphics card runs on Ultra settings on 1080p resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. In comparison to the game recommended requirements of the 1000 most demanding games played today this PC hardware can run 997.

With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the GeForce RTX 2080 Galax SG Edition 8GB can run Days Gone at 1080p and saw it return strong frame rates at the following graphics settings - Low: 231 FPS, Medium: 182 FPS, High: 123 FPS and Ultra: 88 FPS. For performance contrast we can see that Resident Evil 8 returns a good 67 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

Next up we increase screen res tests to accommodate the growing in popularity 1440p screen size. So we booted up Days Gone to see how the GeForce RTX 2080 Galax SG Edition 8GB dealt with it. It scored up a good series of FPS results across these graphics presets - Low: 176 FPS, Medium: 139 FPS, High: 93 FPS and Ultra: 67 FPS. Next we looked at Resident Evil 8 which was reasonable with a 51 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And finally looked at Battlefield 2042 that we predict will get an Ultra 1440p FPS of 41. After a look at the popular games running at 1440p with the GeForce RTX 2080 Galax SG Edition 8GB, this is capable of delivering a solid gaming experience across larger screen sized monitors. We expect to see High and Ultra graphics settings across most games at 1440p with this GPU.

How many years will the GeForce RTX 2080 Galax SG Edition 8GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce RTX 2080 Galax SG Edition 8GB in your PC? This gpu has around 2+ years of running AAA recommended system requirements before any upgrades should be considered.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce RTX 2080 Galax SG Edition 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 SG Edition 8GB.

Overview The GeForce RTX 2080 Galax SG Edition 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 triple fan blades, premium trio cooling, RGB lighting and aluminium backplate. This video card has good 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 1800MHz in Turbo Mode, providing a 5% overclock compared to the reference specs and the same clock speeds as 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 SG Edition 8GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840x2160. We recommend a High-End Processor and 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
