RTX2080 NOT Impressed... Or...Am I???

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, just wanted to give some quick feedback on my experience from a GTX970 to a RTX2080.

Quick disclaimer... I had an issue with my RTX2080 where Nvidia surround was NOT working, so I was unable to test with my standard setup which consists of (3) 24" dell ultrasharps. So I tested with only one @ a resolution of 1920x1200. I have since sent the video card back for an exchange so I cannot do any additional testing until the replacement arrives. But I would like to share 2 saved flights that I tested.

Lets get right to it shall we....

So the first flight was over Anacortes, WA with fairly high settings, shadows, traffic, ORBX scenery and a setting sunset. The GTX970 with the newest drivers managed a whopping 48FPS. Not bad...

OK now lets try the RTX2080 same everything...  drum roll please......   Also 48FPS....  Well that's a bummer..... 

So then I said lets make things a little more interesting. So I changed the weather to a thunder storm and turned up shadows and turned on dynamic lighting. Now lets see what we can do.

With the GTX970 the FPS dropped like a rock to only 27FPS. Thats nearly half the frame rate which makes for not a great experience.

Now lets see how the NEW RTX2080 handled this torture......   Would you believe NOT FAZZED AT ALL...  It still managed to hold 48FPS. 

So the obvious next step was to retest the 970 and the 2080 again to verify something didn't change.  The results were the same.

Lets try another test, Eagle county, Colorado. ORBX. add-on.

GTX970 night time clear skys. 60FPS. Thunderstorm w/DL on, 30-35 FPS again big drop in framerate.

RTX2080 same situation. 60FPS. (No surprise there), Thunderstorm w/DL on, 58-60 FPS.

Guys Bottom line... If you fly in bad weather you NEED this CARD. I hope this helps others in there decision.

I was waiting for some to post something like this. Full overcast plus thunderstorms puts a heavy load on the GPU, so the improvement that you observed is not surprising.

People often state that P3d4 is "CPU limited", but this condition is highly dependent on one's settings and external factors like weather.

AA, resolution, clouds,, waterrefelctiins and shadows are the settings that tax the gpu ....

The more of then the bigger the difference in fps between different cards.

I'm not going to spend 1500 eur in a card just to get better fps in a thunderstorm. Rather wait for P3D engine improvements and then decide.

These card prices are ludicrous probably thanks to the miners and lots of speculation and their main focus is software that doesn't even exist. Let's see what's coming in for P3D and then i'll think if my video card needs a bump.

However, TurboKen is referring to the 2080, which is in the range of 800-850 EUR and thus a reasonable alternative to a 1080 ti if you want to (or have to) upgrade.

@TurboKen, Thanks for sharing your results, it was the bit of information I needed to make the same step coming from a 970.

The 3 monitors will make a big difference. You are barely taxing the card at 1920x1080

Also keep in mind the 2080 has double the vram, which definitely plays a role in the FPS drop with the 970 in that scenario.

Nor am I going spend that kind of money for the projected improvement. We can hope that the price comes down on the RTX 2080 TI, but I tend to doubt that will happen in the short term.

There are some leaks out there saying that the 2070 will be slightly faster than the current 1080 TI. That would be very interesting, if true.

Most comparative test so far have shown the 2080 to have around the same performance as the 1080 Ti (sometimes slightly faster). See https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=iM9Y4tYFDNk for an example. I would guess that the 2070 will be somewhere between the 1080 and the 1080 Ti in performance. I can't see NVIDIA selling many 2080s if you can get that sort of performance from the cheaper 2070.

Think your right, and the 2070 is probaly without SLI (Nvlink)

Orderd a 2080TI and cancelled but have orderd 2 x 2080Ti watercooled from Galaxy they ar not ready before end of november. 

then the P3D is DX11 or? and lock at DX11 benchmarks i can live with the 1080Ti for 2months its often better then the 2080 and not far away from the 2080Ti

I wonder if going from a 1070 to a 2080 would be worth it. Presently DL is unusable for me at 1440p with 4SSAA. This is the minimum AA I can tolerate, since for the most part it gives me a really good picture quality

I'm also running with very low settings in the reflections and shadows category. I'm also not running very high res clouds, but looks acceptable to me.

I'm running a 6700k at 4.7, with 8GB of DDR4 3000 RAM.

Cheers
