F1 2018 Benchmark – Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti vs GTX 1080
These days a modern sim racing title relies heavily on a performant graphics card to power all the photorealistic gameplay visuals generated by the latest game engines. While there are graphics cards available in just about everyone’s budget, it’s safe to say that the current generation of racing titles need a fairly beefy card to get you immersed and let you run your racing simulation at an acceptable framerate.
That’s why the flagship video cards of both Nvidia and AMD are very popular within the sim racing scene. Roughly every 2 years, Nvidia develops a next-generation gaming video card, and after two years of developing cards featuring the Pascal GPU Architecture, Nvidia is ready to replace the current generation of cards such as the Nvidia GTX 1080 and Nvidia GTX 1080ti with the new Turing architecture-based products.
Back in August at the Gamescom trade fair in Cologne Germany, Nvidia’s CEO Jen-Hsun Huang revealed the new GeForce RTX 2080 and RTX 2080Ti cards to the public and stated that they are boosting 6 times more performance as the current gen cards, and feature real-time ray tracing functionality. He called it a revolutionary leap in consumer graphics power. For detailed specs check out the offical nVidia website.
While we will not go in deeper on the technical details and pricing of the cards, as there are way better places on the web to get you up to date, we were interested to see how the new 2080’s are going to perform when used to power sim racing software.
The Polish simrace.pl website now posted an interesting benchmark video on their YouTube channel, showing us a side by side Benchmark Test of the Nvidia’s GeForce 1080Ti and the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti running Codemasters F1 2018 title at a 3440×1440 resolution. We are already looking forward to seeing some more RTX 2080 test results using different sim racing software titles.
