Square Enix has updated the official Final Fantasy XV benchmark test place with benchmark results from the upcoming GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and GeForce RTX 2080 graphics cards. much to the chagrin of reviewers slavishly adhering to Nvidia’s strict embargoes.

The Final Fantasy XV benchmark results page can be viewed in its entirety here, showcasing exactly how Nvidia’s new GPUs stack up against the competition. It should be said that these benchmark results are based on the current version of Final Fantasy XV which doesn't have DLSS support. This could drastically improve the frame rates of both Nvidia RTX graphics cards.

Naturally, we’ll begin right at the top with Final Fantasy XV 4K benchmarks at High-Quality graphics preset. Here, the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti comes out on top of the pack, making the RTX 2080 Ti the fastest gaming GPU in the world right now. The GeForce RTX 2080 Ti scores 5844 in FFXV 4K High benchmarks, compared to 5273 for the Nvidia Titan V.

The RTX 2080 Ti’s real competition is the previous-gen GeForce GTX 1080 Ti though, and it’s got a fairly decent performance advantage. The GeForce RTX 2080 Ti scores 5844 compared to 4442 for the GTX 1080 Ti. This means, in Final Fantasy XV at least, the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti is 31.5% faster than the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti.

As for the GeForce RTX 2080, this is a GPU that’s much more on the level of GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. In the same benchmark, the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 achieves a score of 4624 versus the 1080 Ti’s 4442, giving the new GPU a 4% performance advantage over Nvidia’s current flagship. Considering you can pick up a GTX 1080 Ti for quite a bit cheaper than an RTX 2080 right now though, this perhaps isn’t anything to write home about.

Final Fantasy XV GeForce RTX 20 Series 4K Benchmarks

The benchmark scores represent the total number of frames rendered during the benchmark test. The benchmark is 100 seconds long, so slice the last two digits off a score and you've got the average frames per second. For example, in the 4K benchmark below, the RTX 2080 Ti achieves an average 58fps.

At 1440p it’s a fairly similar story, albeit the performance gap between the RTX 2080 Ti and RTX 2080 compared to the GTX 1080 Ti shrinking to 23% and 4% respectively. In terms of Nvidia's core GPU line-up, both the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and the GeForce GTX 2080 top anything in the GTX 10 Series. The performance gains shrink the lower the resolution though, so these first and foremost are GPUs aimed squarely at the 4K market.

For those of you sat with a current GeForce GTX 10 Series GPU who are perhaps pondering an upgrade, the price is going to be a key driving factor in which way most people lean. Neither of the RTX 20 Series graphics cards are going to be cheap. Despite Nvidia's bogus MSRP claims, the GeForce RTX 2080 is $799 and the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti is an eye-watering $1199. So how does the price to performance compare to what's currently available?

GeForce RTX 20 Series Price to Performance Comparison

  Price 4K Score 4K Relative Performance 4K Price to Performance 1440p Score 1440p Relative Performance 1440p Price to Performance
GeForce RTX 2080 Ti $1199 5844 100% $0.19 Per Point 10030 100% $0.12 Per Point
GeForce RTX 2080 $799 4624 79% $0.17 Per Point 8130 81% $0.10 Per Point
GeForce GTX 1080 Ti $699 4442 76% $0.16 Per Point 7796 78% $0.09 Per Point
GeForce GTX 1080 $549 3395 58% $0.16 Per Point 6107 61% $0.09 Per Point

Unsurprisingly, the cheaper the graphics card, the better the price to performance ratio. It's certainly worth bearing in mind the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti only delivers 4% slower performance than the RTX 2080 though, particularly considering the $100 price difference. Shop around and can easily find a GTX 1080 Ti for $650 too, or potentially even cheaper if you get lucky in a sale. The downside is you'll be missing out on all that ray-traced goodness though, as well as the impact of Nvidia's Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS). This uses the RTX's Tensor Cores for a smart AI-based anti-aliasing solution that could dramatically improve performance and picture quality.

There's not long to go until we find out plenty more about the GeForce RTX 20 Series though, with reviews set to drop this coming Wednesday, September 19th.

Had a gtx970 bought a gtx1080ti for 530€ and got about a 100% performance boost. It was clear from the reveal and the 2080ti coming early that something was fishy. And these numbers dont surprise me :/

I still see no reason to upgrade GTX 1070 to the newest RTX, just a waste of money. Looking forward to AMD Navi GPU and Next-gen CPU

Guess i'll wait for navi... This is not the improvement we've seen with pascal, and taking into account also raytracing, it's a too young technology which can't offer nothing more than 1080p 60fps. I liked the innovation brought with this, totally with that, but my money will go on a more reliable vga this time.

GTX 1070 is still ok for 1440p ; but if I want to really play on my TV (a 4K Samsung SmartTV), I'll soon need to upgrade...

on my TV ? It's good. But whenever I game it's with the Steam link app ; so the rez is converted to 1920x1080 ; not 4K


on my monitor (suited for 1440p) it's still good enough, there's no lag (or at least no obvious ones)

I really feel as though all that rtx and ray tracing mumbo jumbo is just basically snake oil right now. I probably won't buy a new GPU this generation.

So RTX 2080 is on par with the GTX 1080 ti but more expensive. You got to be moron to buy the RTX 2080 at this point. Ohhhh greedy Nvidia.

Where are the FPS benchmarks?, this looks somehting similar to what nvidia show a few days ago.No clue what the perfomance could be.

These are frames rendered over a 100s benchmark. Take the number, divide by 100 and that's your avg fps number.

Finally some real benchmarks. Ok so there's an improvement with the 20 series. Good grief the price for the founders edition is not worth it though.

Nice to finally see some actual numbers for the new card. Better than a vague 4K 60fps mark. Also, I dunno about the prices overseas, but here in The Netherlands 1080Ti prices haven't budged in a month. The cheapest one here is still €699, which is $800. Hoping stores here will wake up and clear their stocks a little

These numbers tell me absolutely nothing about the framerates though.


So I find this information useless to me.

30% increase on 4K, thats huge and all without DLSS. I think now that I have seen benchmarks I go get 2 FEs with waterblocks :)

on games that dont use rtrt, 2 cards can work if there is a profile. right now, no one is doing rtrt with two cards because they are just now trying to implement it with one card. no word on dlss but i dont see two cards being an issue.

I hope for more multi gpu support in Vulkan / DX12 :)
I would like to reach 120Hz, but we will see how it goes with 1 card at the beginning

Your GPU is still capable of playing games at ultra settings 50+ fps at 1080p :/

At 1080p your 980 is enough for 2 more years (at least). Wait for the tech to mature so you'll get more bang 4 your buck.

To be honest with you, I play most of my games on 1280x960 :D just because that's the first resolution on which my monitor can handle 75Hz refresh rate.
But I definitely want to buy a 144hz monitor in the near future and I'm afraid that my 980 isn't enough for it.

The 980 is a decent GPU. The jump to 144hz will reduce your FPS a little, but the deciding factor will be how well the games your playing are optimized & how resource intensive they are.

The 1080 Ti and 1080 are still better value for the money.
Scores hmmm...going to wait off till fps numbers come in.

My 1080 Ti overclocked to 2000MHz or so got 5015 in 4k high, which would only make the 2080 Ti 16% or so faster in this benchmark. Now, that must be a stock one and we don't know how much of a performance increase drivers will grant it, not to mention DLSS. Still, considering a 1080 Ti gets around 30fps average in Kingdom come in 4k maxed out, you would essentially need double the performance to get a solid 60+ fps all of the time in that game.

I do wonder if the 4K performance % difference being higher vs 1440p could be a CPU bottleneck at 1440p. That would sort of explain it.


I just want my Witcher 3 at 5K 100fps, ok?! xD
