NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 vs GeForce GTX 1080 Gaming Performance Benchmarks Unveiled, 4K 60Hz HDR Gaming Out of Box – More Than 50% Faster at 4K, Up To 2 Times Faster With DLSS Tech
The first official performance numbers of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 graphics card have been revealed and compared against its predecessor, the GeForce GTX 1080. The GeForce RTX 2080 is NVIDIA's latest Turing TU104 GPU which rocks impressive specifications and a price of $699 US which is similar to the GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Gaming Benchmarks Unveiled - Performance at 50% Faster Than GTX 1080 on Average at 4K Resolution, 2 Times Faster With NVIDIA DLSS Technology
The performance benchmarks show are compiled from several gaming titles and looks like the GTX 2080 manages an absolutely awesome 4K HDR 60Hz in many demanding game titles such as Mass Effect Andromeda, Star Wars Battlefront II, Far Cry 5, Battlefield 1, Destiny 2, Call of Duty: WW2, F1 2017, Hitman, Resident Evil 7 and Final Fantasy XV.

But that's just the tip of the iceberg since when you put NVIDIA's new Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) tech to the equation, the performance of RTX 2080 is boosted by 2 times over its predecessors. Some games that support NVIDIA's upcoming DLSS tech such as Final Fantasy XV, PUBG, ARK: Survival Evolved and JX3 were tested and delivered with astonishing numbers.
For game after game, Turing delivers big performance gains (see chart, above). Those numbers get even bigger with deep learning super-sampling, or DLSS, unveiled Monday.
DLSS takes advantage of our tensor cores’ ability to use AI. In this case it’s used to develop a neural network that teaches itself how to render a game. It smooths the edges of rendered objects and increases performance.
That’s one example of how Turing can do things no other GPU can. This makes Turing’s full performance hard to measure.
But looking at today’s PC games — against which GPUs without Turing’s capabilities have long been measured — it’s clear Turing is an absolute beast.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Is The First Card To Do 4K HDR 60Hz Gaming At Just $700 US
This falls in line with what NVIDIA has officially stated about their GeForce RTX cards, saying that they will deliver twice the performance than their predecessors and 4K HDR gaming at 60 FPS on the most demanding game titles.
For existing games, Turing will deliver 2x the performance and 4K HDR gaming at 60 FPS on even the most demanding titles. via NVIDIA
|NVIDIA RTX Support for Games
As of August 20, 2018
|Game||Real-Time Raytracing||Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS)|
|Ark: Survival Evolved||No||Yes|
|Assetto Corsa Competizione||Yes||No|
|Final Fantasy XV||No||Yes|
|Islands of Nyne||No||Yes|

|Remnant: From the Ashes||No||Yes|
|Serious Sam 4: Planet Badass||No||Yes|
|Shadow of the Tomb Raider||Yes||No|
|The Forge Arena||No||Yes|
|We Happy Few||No||Yes|
The surprising thing here is that this is the RTX 2080 we are talking about and the performance numbers put it neck and neck with an NVIDIA Titan V graphics card which is a $3000 US part. One can now imagine what the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti would perform like this as that part features much better specifications than the GeForce RTX 2080 (Non-Ti).
