NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti has 4532 CUDA cores. The Cuda cores are more than Nvidia Geforce RTX 2060 and Nvidia Geforce RTX 2060 Super. There are 88 ROPs that help in rotating, resizing, and scaling the image. There are also 544 Tensor Cores which will help in Ray tracing. Ray tracing is so much fun to play with I mean with the new latest games you can enjoy the full amazing lighting control, reflections, and so much more to play games with ray tracing. There are also new features in this GPU like DLSS, what these features do is that new algorithms this upscale your game’s resolutions to make it more crisp and sharp. There are also 68 RT cores. There are 272 texture units. The Texture units help a lot when it comes to gaming textures like cars, bushes, trees, etc. with new continuous updates in drivers this GPU gets faster and more efficient in updates from Nvidia. This GPU also features more amazing things with compatible CPUs like Intel Core i9 12900KS, AMD Ryzen 7 5800, AMD Ryzen 9 5900, and AMD Ryzen 5 5600. With these new processors, this GPU can provide a significant boost in performance. It can double its FPS count in frames with these new CPUs. You can find complete articles just by clicking these processors’ names.

Electric characteristics:

Maximum power draw: 250 W

This GPU’s maximum power consumption is 250W compared to its predecessor’s 270W. This GPU is faster than the Nvidia Geforce GTX 1660 Super and power efficient too. Because this NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti power consumption is 250W. This allows the users to get more out of the GPU. There are also many variants of this GPU that can be further overclocked thus eating more power. The power limit of this GPU is around 280W which is a lot to get faster performance when it’s overclocked. You can get 10-15% more FPS when it’s overclocked but I would not recommend that, if you don’t know about overclocking. The amount of power it eats when you gaming on it is around 200W which also leads us to better heat management. This GPU is fabricated using 12NM which also is power efficient. There are more variants of this GPU but I personally like the Asus Rog Strix version of this GPU, because it has 3 fans with a good radiator and with a good cooling system. One more big advantage of this 12NM fabricator is that the heat management is very good, also with new curve fans to get a high amount of RPM.

Video features:

Multi-monitor: Up to 4 displays
Maximum digital resolution: 7680 x 4320 @60 Hz
Maximum DP resolution: 7680 x 4320 @120 Hz
Maximum DVI resolution: 2560 x 1600
Maximum HDMI resolution: 4096 x 2160 @ 60 Hz
HDMI version: 2.0b

The max monitor support increases with the increase of new technologies and with new updates from monitors, TVs, etc. the GPU’s updates as well. This GPU can support maximum display at 8K with up to 4 monitors. There are vainest with different display outputs. But you will find more than 4 display connectors. There are some variants with thunderbolt displays at well. But there will be 2 display ports 1.4 and 2 HDMI 2.0b connectors. The display port can support 8K at 120Hz which is amazing. Because there will be no lags, and no delays with this new DP version. There is no 8K support on HDMI. Well because the bandwidth of the HDMI is far less than the bandwidth of DP. If you have a monitor that supports 4k 144Hz or a monitor that supports 240Hz then I will recommend using the DP. Because of its bandwidth.


Pixel fill rate: 135.96 Gigapixels/s
Texture fill rate: 420.24 Gigatexels/s
Single precision computes power: 13447.68 GFLOPS
Double precision computes power: 420.24 GFLOPS

We calculate and measure the performance of the GPUs in pixel fill rate, texture fill rate, single-precision computation power, and double-precision compute power. The single-precision compute power, and double-precision compute power is similar that, how we check the performance of a CPU like Geekbench 5 and furmark. Now let’s talk about what is actually all of this. To understand that we need to start with the pixel fill rate. Pixel fill rate is known as the number of pixels that a video card can write to memory and can render every second. This pixel fill rate is measured in Gigapixels and in megapixels which means GT/s and MB/s. this measure the clock frequency of the GPU and the number of ROPs (raster operations). This means the GPU with a high pixel fill rate will support display at high resolutions with high frame rates compare to other GPUs that have a low pixel fill rate. This pixel fill rate fills all the pixels in the monitor, or TV that you are using. The more the pixel fill rate the faster the performance of the GPU will be. The pixel fill rate of This GPU has scored 135.96 Gigapixels/s which is amazingly fast compared to its predecessors. The texture fill rate also scores 420.24 GTexel/s. That’s why it supports 8K at high frame rates thanks to ROP’s. Now let’s talk about the texture fill rate. Texture fillrate measure how many texels can a GPU render per second. Texture fill rate is always measured in the amount of me like (1s). Texels are basically is three-dimensional space objects and called textured pixels.

External connectors:

Standard display connectors: 3 x DisplayPort 1.4
USB Type C
Power connectors: 2 x 8-pin
Audio input for HDMI: Yes

Well, one of the most important and key factors about this GPU is its power consumption. This GPU is not that power-hungry. This GPU needs a 2x 8-pin connector. There are also 3 display ports and 1 HDMI port, which is really great for multiple monitors. There is also Audio input from HDMI which also helps with these new monitors. The 2x 8-pin connector really made the wiring system completely awesome.


Length: 10.5 inches (267 mm)
Width: Dual Slot

These days the size of the GPU is also important because there are a lot of cases that don’t fit some long GPUs. This GPU is 10.5 inches, which can fit in most PC cases. Plus the GPU is also dual-slot which helps in heat overflow. There are some variants of this GPU who’s offering single-slot GPU with a small form factor. Off course, there will be some major issues with heat management in these small GPUs. I will always recommend the normal version of the GPU because in summer the heat dissipation will help in those high variants. The higher variants are more optimized than the normal ones, thus they can handle heat better.

There are a lot of new features in this GPU, and they are updated over me. The most amazing new features of this GPU are Ray tracing, 3D Vision, PhysX, etc. this GPU is so rich in features that a GPU king like Geforce RTX 3060 left behind. This NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti has Open CL support 2.0 which is a lot more efficient than the last gen Open CL 1.2. This will help in boost performance. NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti also has Open GL 4.6 support which is also faster than the Open GL 4.6. NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti also has DirectX 12 ultimate support. The Vulkan support is also 1.2 which makes the driver’s experience more up-to-date. The Shader model makes the texture experience more accurate and more efficient and fast. NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti has the Shader model 6.4.

Gaming Experience:

The gaming experience of this GPU is on another level. NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti has the fastest memories, fast clock speeds, faster memory clock speeds, more Cuda cores, the newest architecture, and higher bandwidth. Which makes the gaming experience more powerful. The more Cuda cores the faster the performance of a GPU will be. So this GPU is like steroids when it comes to the Cuda cores. Running GTA 5 on this GPU will give you around 120+ FPS. And in almost every game this GPU shows the best performance.
