10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

This computer hardware provides top end graphics. The GeForce RTX 2080 MSI Ventus 8GB v2 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 MSI Ventus 8GB v2 can also run 1440p pc system requirements.

This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 12.

We take a look at game performance achieved on this graphics card when running 2022 popular games. This short GeForce RTX 2080 MSI Ventus 8GB v2 game hardware review looks at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. In terms of performance against the most demanding games today this graphics card can play 993 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.

The 1080p FPS on Ultra for the GeForce RTX 2080 MSI Ventus 8GB v2 shows us that Far Cry 6 is getting a good result of 60 FPS, and then we are seeing Dying Light 2 returning a good 61 FPS while another game on our list is the Battlefield 2042 which is getting 53 frames per second at Ultra 1080p.

Next up we increase screen res tests to accommodate the growing in popularity 1440p screen size. So we booted up Dying Light 2 to see how the GeForce RTX 2080 MSI Ventus 8GB v2 dealt with it. It scored up a reasonable series of FPS results across these graphics presets - Low: 123 FPS, Medium: 97 FPS, High: 65 FPS and Ultra: 47 FPS. Next we looked at Battlefield 2042 which was playable with a 40 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And finally looked at Far Cry 6 that got an Ultra 1440p FPS of 46. Getting popular modern games to run at 1440p on the GeForce RTX 2080 MSI Ventus 8GB v2 is one of the better graphics cards for gaming at this screen resolution. We will see 1440p Ultra and High settings across almost all current games.

How many years will the GeForce RTX 2080 MSI Ventus 8GB v2 graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce RTX 2080 MSI Ventus 8GB v2 in your PC? 2-3 years of top end gaming before an upgrade

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce RTX 2080 MSI Ventus 8GB v2? 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 MSI Ventus 8GB v2.

GeForce RTX 2080 MSI Ventus 8GB v2 Game Requirement Analysis

Overview The GeForce RTX 2080 MSI Ventus 8GB v2 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 a dual-fan thermal design, solid anti-bend backplate, and smoothed heat pipes. It is a minor variant with a TU104-400A GPU that is permitted for factor overlocks. This video card has below 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 1710MHz in Turbo Mode, the same as the reference specs, and 5% 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 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 MSI Ventus 8GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840x2160. We recommend a High-End Processor and 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
