14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

A true powerhouse, the GeForce RTX 2080 KFA2 EX OC 8GB will run even the most demanding game system requirements released today. This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 12.

This PC hardware performance game review for the GeForce RTX 2080 KFA2 EX OC 8GB graphics card, when running 2019 more popular games, lets us see what type of FPS this card gets when playing at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions and ultra settings. In comparison to the game recommended requirements of the 1000 most demanding games played today this PC hardware can run 997.

With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the GeForce RTX 2080 KFA2 EX OC 8GB can run Need For Speed Heat at 1080p and saw it return strong frame rates at the following graphics settings - Low: 231 FPS, Medium: 182 FPS, High: 123 FPS and Ultra: 88 FPS. For performance contrast we can see that Death Stranding is predicted to return a good 68 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

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 KFA2 EX OC 8GB ran Need For Speed Heat to a good performance level. Results across the graphics settings looked like this, Low: 176 FPS, Medium: 139 FPS, High: 93 FPS and Ultra: 67 FPS. Another game researched was Death Stranding with predictions of L: 136FPS, M: 107FPS, H: 72FPS, U: 51FPS. And then we checked graphics card performance on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, which returned L: 165FPS, M: 130FPS, H: 88FPS, U: 63FPS at 1440p. Gaming at 1440p with the GeForce RTX 2080 KFA2 EX OC 8GB is easily capable of pc gaming across these screen resolutions. Turn the game settings up to Ultra at 1440p. This GPU is also capable of running a solid FPS across a lot of games at 4K resolution as well.

How many years will the GeForce RTX 2080 KFA2 EX OC 8GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce RTX 2080 KFA2 EX OC 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 KFA2 EX OC 8GB? Upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the 20 Series Titan RTX which is 24% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 998 games from the most demanding games today.

This is a 2.75-slot graphics card with dual 100mm fans, silent extreme technology, five composite heat pipes, aluminium backplate, and RGB Effect lighting. This video card has above average overclocking potential.


Architecture
It equips a Turing GPU Codenamed TU104. More specifically, it uses the TU104-400A-A1 variant which means factor overclocks are 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 1845MHz in Turbo Mode, providing an 8% overclock compared to the reference specs and 3% faster clock speeds than 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 550W 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.
