MSI GEFORCE RTX 2080 OC 8G REVIEW AND BENCHMARKS!

by birtanpublished on September 2, 2020

what's up everyone it's mark from Sullins Tech and today as you've probably gathered from the title of the video I finally got my chance to review an RT X card invidious newest lineup replaces the 10 series and if you

Haven't sold a kidney already to buy a 10 series you might want to check out the duke 2080 from msi on paper it seems well worth it as you can quite happily survive with only one kidney but truthfully can you live without this bad

Boy probably not Nvidia's newest turing architecture has some neat features and could potentially shake up the way we all game on pc they've added an extra set of 46 RT cos and 468 tensor cos into the 2080 ray-tracing will bring your

Puddles to life as well as any other surface that has reflections but it comes at a serious cost to performance so I'm not even sure if rate racing will be viable to the 2080 unless you like gaming at a seriously low FPS I'm

Holding judgment of course rate racing may be an awesome feature only time will tell Nvidia have brought AI in deep learning on to mainstream graphics cars with the 20 series lineup thanks to these so

Called tents of course while the card won't talk to you like a lexer or ziri and I'm a little bit disappointed about that one and must say they do promise altering GPUs will be able to process anti-aliasing up to eight times faster

I'm afraid none of these features are available or anywhere to be seen as of yet so just remember when you go ahead and buy a twenty series graphics card you're an early adopter and there's no guarantee these features will even be

Available it depends on the game developer on a game by game basis hopefully we will see some awesome RTX graphics in games like Battlefield 5 and the long-awaited update from Crystal Dynamics and shadow of the Tomb Raider

Anyway let's get back to variants of the 20/80 named the duke priced across all eight hundred and twenty-nine ninety-nine US dollars and seven hundred and eighty-nine UK pounds the r-tx features better be a deciding

Factor if you're gonna pick up this card as instead you could just buy at an 80 TI for less money and right now they both perform around the same although the price difference between a 1080 TI and a 2080 duke right now are minimal

Just thirty dollars in the u.s. plus the current twenty eighty drivers are in their infancy so there's a good chance the 2080 may pull ahead in performance numbers later on in this lifecycle kind of a no-brainer to just jump on turing

Right now if we take a closer look and the duke 2080 uses three painted fourteen blade talks 2.0 fans to cool the heatsink stretching the card out to three hundred and fourteen millimeters long

You must measure your case before even considering picking one of these up the 2082 also takes up slightly more than two PCIe slots but it's not very tall in fact it's the complete opposite in dimensions when you compare it to the

Msi 1080 TI trio the cards weight is a colossal one point one kilogram sag was minimal considering it weighs so much but msi have included a metal and he sag a bracket to help the overall design I quite like the backplate is a good

Compromise between cooling and looks there's plenty of ventilation while it covers up the PCB nicely on the side I'm not so sure it's my preferred choice mainly due to all the logos although the Duke logo does have some really nice

Cool RTP effects to power this card you're going to need to run a single six pin and eight pin total rated TDP is 275 Watts 75 Watts through the PCIe slot and 150 watts potentially through each of the connectors and I'd recommend at

Least a 650 watt PSU for this card both the 8 pin and 6 pin like the reference design are the wrong way up so I've had to stretch my custom extension cables around the wrong way leaving them looking a bit of a mess

Oh the horror and you thought Halloween was over for ports this card has which I'm extremely glad about three DisplayPort 1.4 and a single HDMI port instead of two display ports and two HDMI ports we found on

Most ten series cars which left triple monitor gamers and able to connect up all three monitors via DisplayPort connections and lastly the card also has a single USB type-c port moving on to my newest test the talks fans shut off

Completely under fifty six degrees Celsius above that when stress testing this card is extremely quiet and it never hit above 71 degrees Celsius in my PC and that was with a massive one hundred seventy five megahertz overclock

To the boost and base clocks anyway without further delay let's check out my benchmarks comparing the MSI Duke 2080 to most of the 10 series lineup and I'll also have some 20 atti benchmarks coming up real soon and every single

Card in these benchmarks are overclocked to the max the 2080 Duke was pushing well over 2000 megahertz on the memory amp core

So guys rounding off this review I believed before testing that the 2080 wasn't even going to be a consideration or on my radar since it reforms so similar to the 1080 TI it's a very strange launch from Nvidia people are

Speculating that Nvidia don't even actually want you to buy a 20 80 series card because they have a huge backorder of 1080 T is due to the mining craze hence the high prices but clearly that's because of the RT X features which we've

Yet to even see while personally I don't believe that I do believe that the tiny TI prices haven't come down because of the backorder and partners are still promoting the 1080 TI now which is strange to see evil way prices are

Starting to level out and the duke 2080 during my testing has been a solid card overall if the prices remain the same as a tasty TI then sure with the up-and-coming features I can highly recommend this card anyway peeps that's

It I really hope you've enjoyed the review I didn't have the card for as long as I would have liked so I didn't get to shoot much epic b-roll anyway my name's Marc from silence Tech and as always goodbye
