Finally, after rumors and issues with some demos, NVIDIA offers the obligatory slide with reference benchmarks of the new GeForce RTX 2080 graphics card, first showing the average frames per second in a group of modern games, and on the other hand – a direct comparison with the GeForce GTX 1080. It should be remembered that these data come from the brand itself, so we must be careful with the conclusions.
As can be seen in the bar chart, this flagship of the new family yields 30-50% more performance than the GeForce GTX 1080, whereas if RTX’s exclusive technology is activated, it is called Deep Learning Super-Sampling (DLSS), the new anti-aliasing, you get double the performance in almost all the games that support it. With DLSS enabled it is equivalent to a SLI of 2x GeForce GTX 1080.
DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling) is one of the new features of the Turing processor, whose function is to use information processed by a great artificial intelligence and compiled in a large database, to generate a kind of super sampling much more effective than the current techniques. According to the company, many great titles like Final Fantasy XV, Hitman 2, Call of Duty: WWII, Mass Effect Andromeda, Star Wars Battlefront 2, Destiny 2, Far Cry 5 and many more, will manage to run at 60 frames per second in 4K resolution thanks to this new technology.
Unfortunately, we do not have more information, all this is what Nvidia has given us, enough information to decide if you want to keep your GeForce GTX graphics card or make a leap to the GeForce RTX bandwagon.
