In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 6GB GDDR5.

The GeForce RTX 2080 has a 150 MHz higher core clock speed and 64 more Texture Mapping Units than the RTX 2060. This results in the GeForce RTX 2080 providing 115 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GeForce RTX 2080 has a 150 MHz higher core clock speed and 17 more Render Output Units than the RTX 2060. This results in the GeForce RTX 2080 providing 32.8 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 RTX 2060 was released less than a year after the GeForce RTX 2080, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

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 RTX 2080 has 2048 MB more video memory than the RTX 2060, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GeForce RTX 2080 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GeForce RTX 2080 has 304 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RTX 2060, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce RTX 2080 is massively better than the RTX 2060.

The GeForce RTX 2060 6GB GDDR5 has 1920 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce RTX 2080 has 2944. However, the actual shader performance of the RTX 2060 is 3226 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce RTX 2080 is 5299. The GeForce RTX 2080 having 2073 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce RTX 2080 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the RTX 2060.

The GeForce RTX 2060 6GB GDDR5 requires 150 Watts to run and the GeForce RTX 2080 requires 215 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the RTX 2060 and a PSU with at least 650 Watts for the GeForce RTX 2080. The GeForce RTX 2080 requires 65 Watts more than the RTX 2060 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GeForce RTX 2080 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the RTX 2060.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview GeForce RTX 2060 6GB GDDR5 is a mid-range GeForce 20 Series graphics card and considered a great price to performance graphics card based on the Turing architecture. Architecture The Turing architecture represents a process shrink down to 12nm compared to 14nm Pascal. The Turing architecture provides the world's first consumer support for real-time ray-tracing technology, or RTX. The GeForce RTX 2060 does support real-time ray-tracing and excels at 1080p screen resolution. GPU It equips a Turing GPU codenamed TU106 which has 1920 Shader Processing Units, 120 TMUs and 47 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1365 MHz and goes up to 1680 MHz, in Boost mode. Memory The GPU accesses a 6GB frame buffer of slower GDDR5 memory compared to the GDDR6 model, running through a 192-bit memory interface, while the Memory clock operates at 1500MHz, or 14GHz effective. Power Consumption With a rated board TDP of 150W, it requires at least a 450W PSU with an 8-pin power connector. System Suggestions GeForce RTX 2060 6GB GDDR5 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1440. We recommend a mid-range Processor and at least 16GB of RAM for optimal performance.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.
