How well can the GeForce RTX 2080 Gigabyte Aorus Xtreme Waterforce 8GB run games
14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

A true powerhouse, the GeForce RTX 2080 Gigabyte Aorus Xtreme Waterforce 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 Gigabyte Aorus Xtreme Waterforce 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. When considering how well this graphics card can run the 1000 most demanding games available today it can best 997 of the games’ recommended graphics requirements.

The GeForce RTX 2080 Gigabyte Aorus Xtreme Waterforce 8GB graphics card is returning a strong performance on FIFA 20 at 1080p of 245 frames per second at Ultra graphics settings. Another popular title that is good to benchmark graphics cards against is Diablo 4 which we predict will get good frame rates of 68 FPS. A third game we can look at on Ultra at 1080p is the popular Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, which was getting 82 FPS under tests.

Moving screen sizes up to 1440p we ran FIFA 20 on the GeForce RTX 2080 Gigabyte Aorus Xtreme Waterforce 8GB to see that it got a strong set of frame rates. Here are the low to ultra results at 1440p - L: 420FPS, M: 350FPS, H: 257FPS, U: 187FPS. Another popular game to investigate at 1440p with this card was Diablo 4 which we predicted will be reasonable in performance netting an Ultra FPS of 51 FPS. Finally we then took a look at Call of Duty: Modern Warfare where its Ultra 1440p Frame rates were good at 63 FPS. Getting popular modern games to run at 1440p on the GeForce RTX 2080 Gigabyte Aorus Xtreme Waterforce 8GB is one of the more powerful graphics cards for this monitor resolution. Games will be running with stable frame rates at Ultra on a 1440p setup. 4K gaming for a number of modern games should also be considered with this graphics hardware.

How many years will the GeForce RTX 2080 Gigabyte Aorus Xtreme Waterforce 8GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce RTX 2080 Gigabyte Aorus Xtreme Waterforce 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 Gigabyte Aorus Xtreme Waterforce 8GB? A great upgrade graphics card would be a 20 Series Titan RTX, which has 23% better performance and can run 998 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today.
