The Nvidia RTX 2080 is a very powerful graphics card but it is not going to do 4K 60 FPS. For that, you need to get the higher-end Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti. The NVLink on both cards allows you the scale the performance and if you were wondering about how well these cards scale then let me tell you that both cards are able to do 8K when paired.
Nvidia has released some official benchmarks and we can see how well the new Turing graphics cards scale with the help of NVLink as compared to the previous graphics cards that used SLI. You can check out the benchmark included below:
The NVLink scaling of these cards has been tested by numerous outlets and we have seen the performance that these cards have to offer but I doubt that anyone had the idea of running these graphics cards at 8K. It will be interesting to see what players are going to do with this information.
Nvidia’s technical marketing director, Tom Petersen talked about the benefits of NVLink. He mentioned that for gaming, the advantage is not going to be a major one but the additional bandwidth will help developers and we might see additional performance in the future when the platform matures. The following is what he had to say in this regard:
Think of the bridge more as we want to lay a foundation for the future and that requires us to move the infrastructure along. So we already have a multi-GPU application called SLI, why don’t we just make that work on a really high-bandwidth bridge bus? And once that works, and we get our bridges deployed, and people understanding that hey, this is a 100GB/s bridge, then game developers will see that.
We have seen the different versions of the Nvidia NVLink from Asus and other companies. For more news and information regarding the Nvidia RTX 2080 stay tuned.
Let us know what you think about the Nvidia RTX 2080. NVLink and whether or not you are interested in pairing 2 of these cards.
