How well can the GeForce RTX 2080 EVGA XC Gaming 8GB run games
14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

A true powerhouse, the GeForce RTX 2080 EVGA XC Gaming 8GB will run even the most demanding game system requirements released today. This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 12.

Here is a performance review on how capable the GeForce RTX 2080 EVGA XC Gaming 8GB is at running the more popular games of 2019. Specifically looking at this PC hardware’s ability to get suitable frames per second to play on Ultra game settings and what FPS it might get on 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen res. Of the 1000 most demanding recommended specs found in game requirements today, this gpu is more powerful than the graphics requirement of 997 games in todays list.

Now onto the frame rates achieved at 1080p. We are seeing Need For Speed Heat getting 88 FPS with the GeForce RTX 2080 EVGA XC Gaming 8GB, Red Dead Redemption 2 getting 88 FPS and Death Stranding predicted to get 67 frames per second. All run on Ultra at 1920x1080 screen res.

Increasing resolution to 1440p is something a number of PC gamers are doing today. We tested the GeForce RTX 2080 EVGA XC Gaming 8GB at 1440p with Need For Speed Heat, which got a good set of FPS results. These were, Low: 176 FPS, Medium: 139 FPS, High: 93 FPS and Ultra: 67 FPS. We then checked out Red Dead Redemption 2 which had a set of graphics results as followed, L: 176FPS, M: 139FPS, H: 93FPS, U: 67FPS. And another popular game was Death Stranding with predictions of L: 135FPS, M: 106FPS, H: 72FPS, U: 51FPS at 1440p. In summary we feel the GeForce RTX 2080 EVGA XC Gaming 8GB running at 1440p is a strong choice at these screen resolutions. With Ultra graphics settings being regularly reached at 1440p gaming its easy to consider bumping up the screen size to 4K for this graphics card.

How many years will the GeForce RTX 2080 EVGA XC Gaming 8GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce RTX 2080 EVGA XC Gaming 8GB 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 EVGA XC Gaming 8GB? Are you looking to upgrade a GeForce RTX 2080 EVGA XC Gaming 8GB? Then we would suggest getting a 20 Series GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Super, as it can run 997 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 22% increased graphics performance.
