Calling all PC gamers….this one’s for you! Nvidia has long been pre-eminent in the PC gaming world, thanks to their top-notch graphics cards. Their latest GPU, the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, is light years ahead of the competition.
Starting with the basics: The RTX 2080 Ti has 11 GB of GDDR6 RAM, Nvidia’s proprietary CUDA cores, and their trademark Turing Architecture. The brand new RTX platform utilizes parallel processing, so it can perform more tasks at once – making the 2080 Ti superior at graphics resolution, ray-tracing, and AI.
It’s large – 10 inches wide – and almost 2 inches thick, but that heft is simply because of its powerful hardware component – like 13-channel next-gen power phase supply and dual-axial 13 blade fans with a vapor cooling chamber to minimize heat output.
As far as in-game specs? You should be able to play virtually any current game on their maxed settings, all the way at 60 fps. With older, less-demanding games, you can likely crank that fps counter all the way up to 200. An unparalleled, smooth gaming experience. And, with a max resolution of 7680 x 4320, it’s perfectly capable of maintaining 4k resolutions.
Just a word of warning though: if you’re gonna buy this ultra-powerful GPU, make sure your other computer components can handle it. You need a fast processor and ample RAM to take full advantage of the 2080 Ti.
However, if you’ve got a suitable desktop set-up and the cash, the 2080 Ti will let you experience all your favorite games in stunning 4k resolutions and with butter-smooth screen transitions.
