Nvidia speaks for the first time about the performance of the GeForce RTX 2080

We still have to live with what Nvidia told us during Editors Day, because unfortunately I don't have my own benchmarks yet. But at least Nvidia presented a certainly interesting slide, which has to be interpreted precisely and without emotion.

Nvidia tests all applications with 3840 x 2160 pixels, i.e. in Ultra HD and with an unspecified antialiasing, as well as HDR where possible. The grey 100% bar stands for the GeForce GTX 1080 FE.

The olive green bars represent the new GeForce RTX 2080, obviously with the same AA settings as the older sister. Where it has already been implemented, the RTX 2080 is growing strongly with the new DLSS (Deep Learning Super-Sampling).

On average, the displayed bars in the selected resolution and the unfortunately unspecified AA settings would result in a performance increase of a whopping 50%, and then even a doubling when using DLSS.

Of course, one can assume that Nvidia has certainly not picked out the worst running games. Nevertheless, this increase in performance, if it can be recorded at least similarly in other settings, is quite a house number.

Unfortunately, pure percentage bars are not yet a reliable information agency for real playability, but at least one releases another slide on which the ten selected games with 60 FPS and partly. should also run significantly more on Ultra-HD.

Again, however, the information about the settings and the test system used is still missing, a pity. However, if you add all the features together and believe Nvidia's statements, even the GeForce RTX 2080 could become the first real 4K graphics card (and not just the RTX 2080 Ti), which could make a multi-GPU setting obsolete.

Of course, I will only be able to judge the actual success after a detailed test, because films are often sufficiently patient. However, the first impression is really not a bad one and if even the broad mass of all games arrives exactly what was promised, then one can speak of a real, above-average performance increase.

This, in turn, together with all RTX features, should be a consolation for the at first glance somewhat hefty price. If it is verifiable exactly as announced. But we will have our tests for that later.

Of course, I like to teaser the water cooling test as a follow-up, because the first fullcover coolers are already on their way to Europe.
