Gears 5

We are using the new game Gears 5 in our review.  We are using the built-in benchmark in the game for the performance below.  However, we have also verified performance in real gameplay and verified the highest playable settings.  Feel free to test using the built-in benchmark and compare your results to ours. 

We are going to show you the default “Ultra” preset performance.  The game runs in DX12 on all cards, and to match the viewport at the right resolution we set the desktop to 1440p and 4K so the game runs everything at the right resolution we are testing since there is no exclusive fullscreen option.  We also have the Ultra HD Texture Pack installed.

This game runs really good at 1440p on all video cards, it is very playable at “Ultra” settings.  The MSI GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER GAMING X TRIO improves upon performance by 9% compared to the GeForce RTX 2080 FE and only slightly above the RTX 2080 SUPER FE.  However, overclocking it puts it 14% faster than RTX 2080 FE and 7% faster than RTX 2080 FE.    

At 4K performance is challenged, the GeForce RTX 2080 FE is not really at playable levels here.  However, the MSI GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER FE and with it overclocked moves it into playable territory.  When it is overclocked it’s 17% faster than the RTX 2080 FE and 10% faster than the RTX 2080 SUPER FE.
