The Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 is going to replace the previous GTX 1080 when it comes out next month and while we have seen rather underwhelming performance from the RTX graphics cards in the recent Shadow of the Tomb Raider demo, it seems that the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 makes up for it in Battlefield V.
The Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 was able to run Battlefield V at 1080p 60 FPS with RTX on and that is pretty impressive keeping in mind the level of detail that is added when the feature is turned on. We saw plenty of Battlefield V at the Gamescom 2018 event and I think that RTX is great but I am still looking to see what kind of impact on performance this feature really has, as it highly unlikely that adding such details will not have a hit on performance in terms of FPS.
Tony Tamasi, senior vice president of Content and Technology at Nvidia touched on the matter of real-time ray tracing and the following is what he had to say in this regard:
The NVIDIA RTX platform and GeForce RTX 20-series GPUs bring real-time ray tracing to games 10 years sooner than anyone could have ever imagined. Thanks to the AI and hardware light-ray acceleration built into GeForce RTX GPUs, games using these futuristic features are right around the corner.
We also got some official numbers from Nvidia that claim that the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 is able to deliver twice the performance of the GTX 1080 and while we do not have numbers in FPS it is still better than nothing at all. You can check out the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 benchmark below:
