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

This computer hardware provides top end graphics. The GeForce RTX 2080 Gigabyte Gaming 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 Gigabyte Gaming OC 8GB can also run 1440p pc system requirements.

This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 12.

Here we take a closer look at the various performances across 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions for the GeForce RTX 2080 Gigabyte Gaming OC 8GB. In particular this is looking at the Ultra graphics settings to see what sort of FPS this graphics card can get across some of the more popular games played in 2021. This graphics hardware can run 997 of the 1000 most demanding PC games played today.

Running at 1080p this card gets a strong frame rate from Days Gone with 88 FPS on Ultra. Then we take a look at Back 4 Blood which returns a strong 99 FPS. Another title that we looked at is the popular Star Citizen which we predict will get a strong 94 FPS.

People are turning their increasingly more powerful graphics cards to the popular 1440p screen size so we tested the GeForce RTX 2080 Gigabyte Gaming OC 8GB to see how it performs on 1440p. First off we have looked at Days Gone where it was good. The frame rates it scored for the game presets were - Low: 176 FPS, Medium: 139 FPS, High: 93 FPS and Ultra: 67 FPS. We added Back 4 Blood to our tests and saw it was good with a 76 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And then researched Star Citizen leading us to predict 71 FPS at Ultra 1440p. In summary we feel the GeForce RTX 2080 Gigabyte Gaming OC 8GB running at 1440p is a strong choice at these screen resolutions. With Ultra graphics settings being regularly reached at 1440p gaming its easy to consider bumping up the screen size to 4K for this graphics card.

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

Overview The GeForce RTX 2080 Gigabyte Gaming 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 Windforce 3X triple-fan cooling system, RGB Fusion 2.0 lighting, and metal 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 1815MHz in Turbo Mode, providing a 6% overclock compared to the reference specs and 1% faster than the clock speeds on 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 650W 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 Gigabyte Gaming 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.
