Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 has been announced and Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang mentioned at the keynote that the card had been designed with overclocking in mind and here we have a benchmark that shows that the card has been overclocked to 2 GHz. He also mentioned that even when overclocked these graphics cards are much more silent as compared to the GTX 1080 Ti.
If that is indeed the case then this means that you won’t be hearing too much noise. People that wear headphones won’t have an issue with this kind of thing but if you use speakers then this is something important to keep in mind.
We can see that the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 is able to beat the GTX 1080 Ti and it is worth mentioning that these are most likely not the final drivers and if that is indeed the case then this means that the tensor cores are not being used. This means that there is still room for improvement. It is possible that when the final drivers come out, the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 performance will increase even further.
It is also worth noting that these are synthetic benchmarks so they are not proper representations of what the in-game performance will be like. It should also be noted that DLSS is something that synthetic benchmarks do not take advantage of at this time. You can check out the comparison between the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 score as well as previous generation graphics cards below:
If these numbers are accurate then you can expect the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti to be more than twice as powerful as compared to the AMD Vega 64. While these cards are based on the Nvidia Turing architecture and these cards have not been released yet, we have started getting word on the Nvidia Ampere architecture that will be coming out before the end of 2020.
Nvidia Ampere will be based on the 7nm process and it is expected that the move to the smaller note will increase performance by 35% and reduce energy consumption by 65% compared to the 12nm process. Stay tuned for further information and updates regarding the matter.
