NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER Video Card Review

The Division 2

Note that in all the graphs to follow the video cards are compared by price.  The most expensive video card by MSRP is on top, while the least expensive video card by MSRP is on bottom.  In this way you can compare pricing from bottom to top and see where performance lies.

In The Division 2 we are running in DX12 and we have all the in-game settings at their highest values.  We are using the built-in benchmark for testing and have verified playability in-game.  Feel free to test and compare your video card performance versus ours using the same test. 

In the above graph we are comparing performance at 1440p.  Remember, the GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER is being compared to the Founders Edition of the GeForce RTX 2080, not the standard-clocked RTX 2080.  The Founders Edition has an overclocked boost clock compared to the standard-clocked RTX 2080.  NVIDIA states performance should be between 5-7% faster on the RTX 2080 SUPER versus the RTX 2080 Founders Edition.

In this test it looks like our RTX 2080 SUPER is 7% faster than the GeForce RTX 2080 Founders Edition.  This is right on point with the expected performance compared to this particular graphics card.  The GeForce RTX 2080 Ti still smokes it being 22% faster.  What the GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER is offering though is performance that is 7% faster for a price $100 less than the GeForce RTX 2080 Founders Edition. 

At this resolution all video cards are technically playable at these settings.  However, the NVIDIA video cards are noticeably smoother and better with the higher framerates compared to the Radeon VII.       

4K really puts the hurt on all the video cards.  The Radeon VII suffers the worse.  Once again the GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER is 7% faster than the GeForce RTX 2080 FE, so it’s performing right where it should be.  The GeForce RTX 2080 Ti is 27% faster.  At this resolution only the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti at these highest settings is playable.  The other cards will have to drop in-game settings.
