How well can the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti MSI Lightning Z 11GB run games
14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

A true powerhouse, the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti MSI Lightning Z 11GB will run even the most demanding game system requirements released today. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 12 requirement.

We take a look at game performance achieved on this graphics card when running 2019 popular games. This short GeForce RTX 2080 Ti MSI Lightning Z 11GB game hardware review looks at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. In comparison to the game recommended requirements of the 1000 most demanding games played today this PC hardware can run 997.

Running at 1080p this card gets a strong frame rate from Red Dead Redemption 2 with 101 FPS on Ultra. Then we take a look at FIFA 20 which returns a strong 280 FPS. Another title that we looked at is the popular Diablo 4 which we predict will get a good 78 FPS.

With PC gamers looking for larger screen sizes like 1440p we tested the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti MSI Lightning Z 11GB by playing Red Dead Redemption 2 which yielded a good performance. Its FPS results for the graphics settings are as follows - L: 203FPS, M: 160FPS, H: 108FPS, U: 77FPS. Another popular game we tested with this card was FIFA 20 and that was strong. This graphics card delivered 214 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Another popular title was Diablo 4 which is predicted to get reasonable results with a 59FPS on Ultra 1440p. After a look at the popular games running at 1440p with the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti MSI Lightning Z 11GB, this is a very strong choice of graphics cards at higher resolution gaming. 4K gaming with this graphics card is certainly something that can be achieved across a number of the latest games and still achieve good graphics settings at those resolutions. Ultra 1440p is also a regular occurrence with this gpu.

How many years will the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti MSI Lightning Z 11GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti MSI Lightning Z 11GB in your PC? This gpu has around 2+ years of running AAA recommended system requirements before any upgrades should be considered.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti MSI Lightning Z 11GB? 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 Ti MSI Lightning Z 11GB.

GeForce RTX 2080 Ti MSI Lightning Z 11GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce RTX 2080 Ti MSI Lightning Z 11GB is a top-end RTX 20 Series graphics card and considered an Enthusiast graphics card based on the Turing architecture. This is a triple-slot graphics card with TRI-FROZR triple-fan cooling and excellent overclocking capabilities.


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 (RTX) technology.


GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed TU102 which has 4352 Shader Processing Units, 272 TMUs and 88 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1350MHz and goes up to 1770MHz in Boost mode, offering a generous 15% overclock compared to the reference model. It also has 544 Tensor Cores for AI purposes.


Memory
The GPU accesses an 11GB frame buffer of first-gen GDDR6 memory through a 352-bit memory interface, while the Memory clock operates at 1750MHz, or 14GHz effective.


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 285W, it requires at least a 650W PSU with three 8-pin power connectors.


System Suggestions
The GeForce RTX 2080 Ti MSI Lightning Z 11GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840x2160. We recommend a top-End Processor and at least 16GB of RAM for optimal performance.
