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

A true powerhouse, the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti MSI Lightning 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 11GB game hardware review looks at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. 997 games can be played by this graphics card of the 1000 most demanding games being played by PC gamers today.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti MSI Lightning 11GB performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and saw it deliver strong frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 244 FPS, Medium: 192 FPS, High: 130 FPS and Ultra: 93 FPS. We proceeded to look at Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order to see how that compared and saw that it returned a good 76 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

Moving screen sizes up to 1440p we ran Call of Duty: Modern Warfare on the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti MSI Lightning 11GB to see that it got a good set of frame rates. Here are the low to ultra results at 1440p - L: 186FPS, M: 147FPS, H: 99FPS, U: 71FPS. Another popular game to test at 1440p with this card was Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order which seemed reasonable in performance netting an Ultra FPS of 58 FPS. Finally we then took a look at Red Dead Redemption 2 where its Ultra 1440p Frame rates were good at 76 FPS. After a look at the popular games running at 1440p with the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti MSI Lightning 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 11GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti MSI Lightning 11GB in your PC? 2-3 years of top end gaming before an upgrade

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

GeForce RTX 2080 Ti MSI Lightning 11GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce RTX 2080 Ti MSI Lightning 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, TORX 3.0 fans, 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 1575MHz in Boost mode, offering a small 2% 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 250W, it requires at least a 650W PSU with three 8-pin power connectors.


System Suggestions
The GeForce RTX 2080 Ti MSI Lightning 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.
