How well can the GeForce RTX 2080 MSI Aero 8GB run games
14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

A true powerhouse, the GeForce RTX 2080 MSI Aero 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 MSI Aero 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. Of the 1000 most demanding recommended specs found in game requirements today, this gpu is more powerful than the graphics requirement of 995 games in todays list.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the GeForce RTX 2080 MSI Aero 8GB performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title FIFA 20 and saw it deliver strong frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 538 FPS, Medium: 449 FPS, High: 329 FPS and Ultra: 239 FPS. We proceeded to look at Red Dead Redemption 2 to see how that compared and saw that it returned a strong 86 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

One of the growing popular screen resolutions for PC gaming is the wider 1440p. So we wanted to see how well the GeForce RTX 2080 MSI Aero 8GB performed at 1440p by taking a look at some of the current popular games. First we looked at FIFA 20 and saw it deliver strong frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 410 FPS, Medium: 342 FPS, High: 251 FPS and Ultra: 182 FPS. We then checked the performance on Red Dead Redemption 2 to see if that runs well. It was good with a 66 FPS at Ultra 1440p. In summary we feel the GeForce RTX 2080 MSI Aero 8GB running at 1440p is a solid performer with higher resolution modern gaming. This graphics card can also bump up to 4K gaming regularly with the latest games still being capable of high or ultra graphics settings at this level.

How many years will the GeForce RTX 2080 MSI Aero 8GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce RTX 2080 MSI Aero 8GB in your PC? No graphics card upgrade required for 2 to 3 years of meeting top end game system requirements

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce RTX 2080 MSI Aero 8GB? Upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the 20 Series GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Super which is 23% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 997 games from the most demanding games today.

GeForce RTX 2080 MSI Aero 8GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
The GeForce RTX 2080 MSI Aero 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 a rudimentary single-fan blower design. 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 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 Aero 8GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840x2160. We recommend a High-End Processor and 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
