How well can the GeForce RTX 2080 Gigabyte Gaming 8GB run games
14 Oct 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

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

How well will the GeForce RTX 2080 Gigabyte Gaming 8GB run 2020 games? We will take a look at the biggest releases and frames per second analysis on Ultra graphics settings. In terms of performance against the most demanding games today this graphics card can play 992 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.

The GeForce RTX 2080 Gigabyte Gaming 8GB graphics card is returning a strong performance on Genshin Impact at 1080p of 86 frames per second at Ultra graphics settings. Another popular title that is good to benchmark graphics cards against is Assassins Creed: Valhalla which we predict will get reasonable frame rates of 58 FPS. A third game we can look at on Ultra at 1080p is the popular Phasmophobia, which was getting 98 FPS under tests.

As the PC gaming masses explore larger screen resolutions we decided to run some game checks at 1440p across a few popular games. We discovered the GeForce RTX 2080 Gigabyte Gaming 8GB ran Genshin Impact to a good performance level. Results across the graphics settings looked like this, Low: 173 FPS, Medium: 136 FPS, High: 92 FPS and Ultra: 66 FPS. Another game researched was Assassins Creed: Valhalla with predictions of L: 89FPS, M: 76FPS, H: 66FPS, U: 45FPS. And then we checked graphics card performance on Phasmophobia, which returned L: 196FPS, M: 155FPS, H: 104FPS, U: 74FPS at 1440p. Running games at 1440p with a GeForce RTX 2080 Gigabyte Gaming 8GB is more than capable at running this screen resolution. 1440p Ultra across almost all modern games is going to be fairly standard with this GPU. We would consider moving this hardware up to 4K screen resolutions for PC gaming today.

How many years will the GeForce RTX 2080 Gigabyte Gaming 8GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce RTX 2080 Gigabyte 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 Gigabyte Gaming 8GB? A suitable upgrade choice for the GeForce RTX 2080 Gigabyte Gaming 8GB is the 20 Series GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Super, which is 23% more powerful and can run 998 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.

GeForce RTX 2080 Gigabyte Gaming 8GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
The GeForce RTX 2080 Gigabyte Gaming 8GB is a High-End Graphics Card based on the Turing Architecture and is suitable for 1440p or 4K gaming. This is a dual-slot graphics card with Windforce 3X triple-fan cooling system, RGB Fusion 2.0 lighting, and metal backplate. This video card has poor overclocking potential.


Architecture
It equips a Turing GPU Codenamed TU104. More specifically, it uses the TU104-400-A1 variant which means factor overclocks are not permitted. This is a First Gen Turing GPU and has 20 SM activated, offering 2944 Shader Processing Units, 184 TMUs, and 64 ROPs. The Turing architecture provides the world's first consumer support for real-time ray-tracing (RTX) technology. It also has 368 Tensor Cores for AI purposes.


GPU
The central unit runs at 1515MHz and goes up to 1710MHz in Turbo Mode, the same as the reference specs and 5% slower than the clock speeds on the Founders Edition.


Memory
The GPU accesses an 8GB frame buffer of Second Gen GDDR6 through a 256-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 1750MHz, or 14GHz effective. Total memory bandwidth is 448 Gb/s.


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 215W, it requires at least a 650W PSU with available 8-pin + 6-pin power connector.


Performance


The performance of the GeForce RTX 2080 is slightly faster than the GTX 1080 Ti, making it a suitable graphics card for 4K gaming.


System Suggestions
GeForce RTX 2080 Gigabyte Gaming 8GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840x2160. We recommend a High-End Processor and 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
