Nvidia’s first batch of RTX 20-series graphics cards will be with us in just a few weeks. We are still awaiting full reviews and benchmarks but in the meantime, we’ve had several leaks to tide us over. This week, a leaked set of benchmarks for the RTX 2080Ti hit the web, with a slew of big games tested and compared to the GTX 1080Ti.
This particular leak came from the Turkish YouTube channel, PC Hocasi TV. The video went up and was eventually taken down, unfortunately by that point it was too late. Other sites across the web already had the information at hand, preserving it for public viewing.
Going by these early performance numbers, the RTX 2080Ti averages out to be between 35% and 40% better than the Pascal flagship. You can see the claimed benchmark results below (via 3DCenter), all benchmarks were apparently ran in 4K and all results are average frame rates:
|GTX 1080Ti||RTX 2080Ti|
|Battlefield V||54.5 frames per second||75.2 frames per second|
|Call of Duty: WWII||50 frames per second||61.1 frames per second|
|Far Cry 5||44.4 frames per second||68.9 frames per second|
|For Honor||51.7 frames per second||78.3 frames per second|
|Grand Theft Auto V||61.5 frames per second||78.2 frames per second|
|Mass Effect: Andromeda||48.4 frames per second||67.3 frames per second|
|PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds||42.5 frames per second||61.6 frames per second|
|Rainbow Six: Siege||61.6 frames per second||90.1 frames per second|
|The Witcher III||44.1 frames per second||56.4 frames per second|
Some of these benchmarks do appear dubious. I’m fairly sure a GTX 1080Ti should be capable of handling a higher frame rate in Call of Duty: WWII. Additionally, Battlefield V isn’t set to release until late November and the beta doesn’t start until later this week, so I’m unsure where exactly this result came from. Due to how early these benchmarks have come out, and the other inconsistencies mentioned, I would take these results with a grain of salt.
KitGuru Says: With Nvidia releasing the RTX 2080Ti straight out of the gate, this is the kind of performance level I would expect. Still these are early days and we don’t even know if reviewers have their cards and final drivers yet, so take the current info with a grain of salt.
