NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Founders Edition – Synthetic Benchmarks

I tested the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Founders Edition with some synthetic benchmarks first; to see how it stood against the previous flagship GTX 10 series and AMD’s flagship graphics card. The synthetic benchmarks include 3DMark Fire Strike, 3DMark Fire Strike Extreme, 3DMark Fire Strike Ultra, 3DMark Time Spy and 3DMark Time Spy Extreme. I’ve also included Unigine 2’s Superposition benchmark, which is a very demanding benchmark test; at 1080p, 1440p and 2160p or 4K UHD resolution. Below are the scores that I got with the RTX 2080 Founders Edition:

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Founders Edition is definitely faster than the GTX 1080, the Zotac GeForce GTX 1080 Mini to be exact. We see around 23% increase on the DX11 Fire Strike, Extreme and Ultra tests; and a huge 47% to 50% increase on the DX12 Time Spy, Time Spy Extreme tests.

The scores only gets better with Unigine 2 Superposition as the RTX 2080 is 69% to 92% faster than the GTX 1080. However, it looks like it’s having a hard time competing with the Zotac GTX 1080 Ti AMP on the Fire Strike tests. Although it’s a tad faster than the GTX 1080 Ti on the Superposition tests.

Let’s proceed to the next page and see how the GeForce RTX 2080 Founders Edition performs with playable games.
