Nvidia releases first RTX 2080 4K benchmark results

While the bulk of Nvidia’s RTX 20-series launch event centered around real-time ray-tracing, many of us were left wondering about regular performance. During the conference, we didn’t really get any standard benchmarking numbers, which has led to some concern. That changed last night as Nvidia has now released its own 4K benchmark results for a number of games.

As part of yesterday’s ‘Editors Day’ at Gamescom, Nvidia revealed 4K performance numbers for current games, free of any fancy RTX effects. The benchmark slides focus on the RTX 2080 rather than the 2080Ti and according to Nvidia’s own results, the GPU is capable of 4K/60 across the board:

As you can see from the slide image above, the RTX 2080 can apparently average 71 frames per second at 4K in Far Cry 5. It gets 67 frames per second in Mass Effect Andromeda and 84 frames per second in Battlefield 1.

A second slide was released showing performance gains for the RTX 2080 over the GTX 1080. In some cases, the RTX 2080 is around 1.5 times faster and in others, it is over two times faster. Nvidia’s new Deep Learning Anti-Aliasing can improve performance gains even further.

Unfortunately, we don’t know what settings these games were running at to achieve these results. With that in mind, take the information with a grain of salt as we still await third-party benchmarks to validate these claims.

KitGuru Says; A lot of time has been spent focussing on ray-tracing specifically but I am most interested in seeing standard performance results like this. We still need to await independent reviews but so far, it looks like 4K/60 might finally be possible on a single GPU.

KitGuru Games: Monster Hunter Rise gets impressive PC upgrade

I would be lying if I said I wasn't a little bit concerned about Monster Hunter Rise coming to PC after initially launching on Switch. The game was originally built to run on very low-power hardware compared to Monster Hunter World and I had my doubts as to how well the game would scale for higher-end PC hardware. After spending some time with the newly released Monster Hunter Rise PC demo, I have come away impressed.
