ASUS ROG STRIX RTX 2080 Ti Video Card Review

We’ve put the new ASUS ROG STRIX RTX 2080 Ti video card to the test, pushing the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti GPU at 4K in twelve games default and overclocked against an MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Ti GAMING X TRIO also default, and overclocked to find the real value. All real-world gaming, no canned benchmarks.


GPU Clock Speed Consistency

On this page we are now going to look at the real-world GPU frequency in-game GPU Boost is pushing the core to. Remember, the base clock is 1350MHz, so we don’t want it to ever drop below that, so our red-line goes there. The boost clock is 1650MHz so we put our green line at that mark.

This graph shows that the real-world GPU Boost clock while gaming actually runs the GPU well past 1650MHz up to 1755MHz-1890MHz averaging 1814MHz. That’s a 10% clock speed boost compared to the rated boost clock. That means this video card already receives a large performance advantage just running at its default clocks. We are curious then how much overclocking potential the GPU has.

Temperatures are excellent on this video card, hitting 62c maximum with default fan speeds.
