NVIDIA GeForce RTX 20 Series Review Ft. RTX 2080 Ti & RTX 2080 Founders Edition Graphics Cards – Turing Ray Traces The Gaming Industry
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti & GeForce RTX 208019th September, 2018
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti & GeForce RTX 2080 Power Consumption
We compiled the power consumption results by testing each card under idle and full stress when the card was running games. Each graphics card manufacturer sets a default TDP for the card which can vary from vendor to vendor depending on the extra clocks or board features they plug in on their custom cards. Default TDP for the RTX 2080 Ti is set at 260W and 225W for the RTX 2080. Do note that the Founders Edition variants are clocked at 90 MHz higher than the reference specs so power consumption would be higher.
The 12nm process which Turing cards are based on is a refinement of the 16nm process from TSMC. Both TU102 and TU104 recieve huge bump in core specifications yet power consumption hasn’t gone up by a lot. The RTX 2080 FE system on average was around 40W more power hungry than the GTX 1080 while the RTX 2080 Ti was less power hungry than a custom 1080 Ti graphics card.
