MSI GeForce RTX 2080 Duke 8G OC – Final Fantasy XV Benchmarks

The DLSS patch for Final Fantasy XV isn’t out yet. I wonder what could be keeping them from releasing the patch when it’s relatively easy for game developers to implement DLSS. Anyway, when testing the MSI GeForce RTX 2080 Duke, I only used the in-game benchmarking tool of the FF XV. We’ll do a separate benchmark once DLSS is rolled out in the near future, hopefully.

The results below are calculated scores and not in frames per second. Below is a table from FFXV’s site showing what these scores indicate for the gameplay.

Once again, a very close or similar performance with the RTX 2080 Founders Edition. What’s even interesting is that the Zotac GTX 1080 Ti AMP is also very near with the performance level of the RTX 2080 in this game. However, I expect that once DLSS is rolled out, the performance difference between these RTX 2080 and the GTX 1080 Ti would only widen.

  1. Have you heard any reports of “noise” coming from these cards? And I don’t mean just when they are under load from gaming; I mean noise while idle. There is a somewhat loud, and definitely obnoxious noise from my Duke OC, and I have no idea what would be causing it; I do know that my PC was not noisy to any extent before I got this card. The only time there would be noise would be if I ramp up the case fans’ speed using the adjuster dial on the case. But ever since I installed that Duke, from probably a week or so after I got it, it has been making this noise; I can’t describe it, either.

    • You won a 2080? That’s cool! Not sure what’s the current pricing due to the current (shortage/scalping) situation, but you can check local pricing for reference.
