In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 are very slightly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Asus ROG Strix A8G Gaming 8GB.

The GTX 1080 has a 156 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce RTX 2080, but the GeForce RTX 2080 has 24 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 1080. As a result, the GeForce RTX 2080 exhibits a 11.4 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GTX 1080. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 1080 has a 156 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce RTX 2080 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 1080 providing 9.9 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GeForce RTX 2080 was released over a year more recently than the GTX 1080, and so the GeForce RTX 2080 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GTX 1080.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The GeForce GTX 1080 Asus ROG Strix A8G Gaming 8GB and the GeForce RTX 2080 have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GeForce RTX 2080 has 127.7 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 1080, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce RTX 2080 is massively better than the GTX 1080.

The GeForce GTX 1080 Asus ROG Strix A8G Gaming 8GB has 2560 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce RTX 2080 has 2944. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 1080 is 6255 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce RTX 2080 is 5299. The GTX 1080 having 956 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GeForce RTX 2080 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GeForce RTX 2080 transistor size technology is 4 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 1080. This means that the GeForce RTX 2080 is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 1080.

The GeForce GTX 1080 Asus ROG Strix A8G Gaming 8GB requires 300 Watts to run and the GeForce RTX 2080 requires 215 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GTX 1080 and a PSU with at least 650 Watts for the GeForce RTX 2080. The GTX 1080 requires 85 Watts more than the GeForce RTX 2080 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 1080 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GeForce RTX 2080.

Performance
At 1920x1080, Benchmarks Indicate a 5.7% Performance Boost over the Reference GeForce GTX 1080. This goes up to 7.4% at 3840x2160.
Overview The GeForce RTX 2080 is a High-End Graphics Card based on the Turing Architecture. This card has also been rumoured to be called the GeForce GTX 2080 or the GeForce GTX 1180. Architecture It equips a Turing GPU Codenamed GT104 which 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 technology, or RTX. It also has 368 Tensor Cores for AI purposes. GPU Name: TU104-400A-A1 GPU The central unit runs at 1515MHz and goes up to 1800MHz in Turbo Mode. 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 Predicted performance of the GeForce RTX 2080 suggests it will be faster than the Geforce GTX 1080 Ti, making it a suitable graphics card for 4K gaming. System Suggestions GeForce RTX 2080 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840x2160. We recommend a High-End Processor and 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
