GeForce RTX 2080 MSI Ventus 8GB v2 Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
The GeForce RTX 2080 MSI Ventus 8GB v2 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 a dual-fan thermal design, solid anti-bend backplate, and smoothed heat pipes. It is a minor variant with a TU104-400A GPU that is permitted for factor overlocks. This video card has below 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 1710MHz in Turbo Mode, the same as the reference specs, and 5% slower 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 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 MSI Ventus 8GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840x2160. We recommend a High-End Processor and 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
