NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER Video Card Review

Metro Exodus

Note that in all the graphs 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 graphs we are using the latest version of Metro Exodus.  The game is running in DX12 and we have all of the in-game settings at their maximum values for graphics under the “Extreme” preset.    In this test PhysX and HairWorks are ON.  We are using the built-in benchmark for testing results and we verified playability in gameplay.  Feel free to test your video cards performance and see how it compares against ours.     

At 1440p the GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER FE is 5% faster than the GeForce RTX 2080 FE.  Since we are comparing to the RTX 2080 FE 5% is a correct performance value for the RTX 2080 SUPER’s performance.  This game is tough on performance, and only the RTX 2080 Ti is playable at the highest “Extreme” settings, all other cards will have to lower in-game settings. 

At 4K we are also seeing a 5% performance difference with the new GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER FE card over the GeForce RTX 2080 FE card.  Games are going to perform different, and depending on what game you are using the difference will be greater or smaller.

Since the GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER FE has more Tensor Cores and RT Cores than the GeForce RTX 2080 FE we wanted to test Ray Tracing performance.  We can see here that it is 6% faster when using Ray Tracing, so the difference increases slightly when Ray Tracing is being used.
