RTX2080 or RTX2080Ti....which card to buy??
The nVIDIA GeForce RTX2080 and RTX2080Ti are now in there growing stage bringing an amazing PC gaming performance enabling 4k 60 frames-per-second gaming achievable on a single card.
Now that since these cards have attained desirable level of popularity, we are herein putting these cards head to head to see which card is most suitable for your system.
When it comes to sheer horsepower, the RTX2080Ti wins the race by a distance but this factor should be considered along with other key factors such as specs, performance and price before finalizing your card.
In terms of specs, the RTX2080 has 8GB DDR6 VRAM with a 14Gbps speed on a 256-bit bus. It has a base clock of 1515Mhz, boost clock of 1710MHz and 2944 Cuda cores whereas RTX2080Ti comes with a higher DDR6 VRAM of 11GB at the same speed of 14Gbps but on a 352-bit bus. Though, it falls behind as far as clock speed is concerned with base and boost clock of 1350MHz and 1545MHz respectively, but it has more cuda cores at 4352.
From performance point of view, if you are looking at raw speed only than RTX2080Ti is significantly faster than RTX2080 in every game and if you are planning to play at 4k with heavy ray tracing effects then this is the best card for the job.
But if you are finding RTX2080Ti exceeding your budget you may opt for RTX2080 which is an ideal fit for 1440p gaming and given the price difference with its Ti counterpart this card is a better deal if you are ready to compromise a bit with 4k gaming.
Everything comes down to what games you want to play and at what resolution. If you’re looking to play all the latest AAA games at 4K 60 fps without compromising on quality, you might want to go for the RTX 2080 Ti, even if the price is a bit higher.
But, if you’re looking for QHD gaming, maybe at a high refresh rate, the RTX 2080 is going to work just fine. You’re going to be able to max out games at that resolution without needing to invest that extra amount.
