How well can the GeForce RTX 2080 EVGA XC2 Ultra Gaming 8GB run games
2 Aug 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

A true powerhouse, the GeForce RTX 2080 EVGA XC2 Ultra Gaming 8GB will run even the most demanding game system requirements released today. This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 12.

Here we take a closer look at the various performances across 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions for the GeForce RTX 2080 EVGA XC2 Ultra Gaming 8GB. In particular this is looking at the Ultra graphics settings to see what sort of FPS this graphics card can get across some of the more popular games played in 2020. Of the 1000 most demanding recommended specs found in game requirements today, this gpu is more powerful than the graphics requirement of 996 games in todays list.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the GeForce RTX 2080 EVGA XC2 Ultra Gaming 8GB performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title Cyberpunk 2077 and predict it will deliver good frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 177 FPS, Medium: 139 FPS, High: 94 FPS and Ultra: 67 FPS. We proceeded to look at Horizon: Zero Dawn to see how that compared and predict that it will return a strong 88 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

People are turning their increasingly more powerful graphics cards to the popular 1440p screen size so we tested the GeForce RTX 2080 EVGA XC2 Ultra Gaming 8GB to see how it performs on 1440p. First off we have researched Cyberpunk 2077 and predict it will be reasonable. The frame rates predicted for the game presets were - Low: 135 FPS, Medium: 106 FPS, High: 72 FPS and Ultra: 51 FPS. We added Horizon: Zero Dawn to our research and predict it will be good with a 67 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And then researched Microsoft Flight Simulator leading us to predict 76 FPS at Ultra 1440p. 1440p gaming on the GeForce RTX 2080 EVGA XC2 Ultra Gaming 8GB 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 XC2 Ultra Gaming 8GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce RTX 2080 EVGA XC2 Ultra Gaming 8GB in your PC? 2-3 years of top end gaming before an upgrade

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce RTX 2080 EVGA XC2 Ultra Gaming 8GB? Are you looking to upgrade a GeForce RTX 2080 EVGA XC2 Ultra 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 21% increased graphics performance.
