How well can the GeForce RTX 2080 MSI Duke OC 8GB run games
Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 MSI Duke OC 8GB
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

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

This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 12.

Lets look at the GeForce RTX 2080 MSI Duke OC 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. We look at 1000 of the most demanding games available today and this GPU is better than the recommended graphics requirement of more than 997 games in the list.

Now onto the frame rates achieved at 1080p. We predict that Battlefield 2042 will get 63 FPS with the GeForce RTX 2080 MSI Duke OC 8GB, Dying Light 2 predicted to get 63 FPS and FIFA 22 predicted to get 152 frames per second. All run on Ultra at 1920x1080 screen res.

As the PC gaming masses explore larger screen resolutions we decided to run some game checks at 1440p across a few popular games. We predict the GeForce RTX 2080 MSI Duke OC 8GB will run the upcoming game Battlefield 2042 to a reasonable performance level. Predictions across the graphics settings looked like this, Low: 126 FPS, Medium: 99 FPS, High: 67 FPS and Ultra: 48 FPS. Another game researched was Dying Light 2 with predictions of L: 126FPS, M: 99FPS, H: 67FPS, U: 48FPS. And then we researched potential graphics card performance on FIFA 22, wih estimates revealing L: 306FPS, M: 241FPS, H: 162FPS, U: 116FPS at 1440p. Gaming at 1440p with the GeForce RTX 2080 MSI Duke OC 8GB is more than capable at running this screen resolution. 1440p Ultra across almost all modern games is going to be fairly standard with this GPU. We would consider moving this hardware up to 4K screen resolutions for PC gaming today.

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

GeForce RTX 2080 MSI Duke OC 8GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview The GeForce RTX 2080 MSI Duke 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 a triple-fan thermal design, Zero Frozr silent fan stop, solid anti-bend backplate, and RGB Mystic lighting. 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 1845MHz in Turbo Mode, providing an 8% overclock compared to the reference specs, and 3% faster 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 245W, 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 Duke 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.
