Nvidia’s future-focused reveal of the GeForce RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti admirably outlined the gorgeous potential of real-time ray tracing, but left gamers hanging on a key question: How will the new Turing-based GPUs perform in traditional non-ray-traced games? With preorders already open for GeForce RTX graphics cards, it’s a crucial detail.

Well, wonder no more. On Wednesday, Nvidia pulled back the curtain on how much faster the GeForce RTX 2080 is compared to the GeForce GTX 1080, and revealed some additional information about new RTX-boosted software features, including a massive upgrade to Ansel super-screenshots. 

But first, the hard(ish) numbers.  

Nvidia expects rasterized (read: normal) PC games to run about 1.5 times faster on the GeForce RTX 2080 than the GeForce GTX 1080, as you can see in the graph below. Games that take advantage of the new Deep Learning Super Sampling technology for the GeForce RTX series are roughly twice as fast on the 2080, Nvidia says. Note, however, that this chart measures 4K performance alone.

A second image released by Nvidia shows the GeForce RTX 2080 surpassing 60fps at 4K resolution in numerous top-tier games, and almost cracking 100 frames per second in Call of Duty: WWII. Exact graphics settings for the games weren’t listed, alas, but between the previous chart and what we know about the GTX 1080’s performance in these games, expect these numbers to be accurate with eye candy cranked to fairly lofty levels.

All vendor-supplied benchmarks should be taken with a pinch of salt until verified by third-party reviewers, but Nvidia’s marketing claims tend to be accurate (albeit sometimes only in very specific scenarios). If you’ve been considering preordering the GeForce RTX 2080, but wanted to hear more information about traditional games performance first, these numbers should alleviate some concern, especially if you’re playing at the tested 4K resolution.  

Nvidia didn’t dish out performance details for the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti. However, it packs roughly 50 percent more CUDA cores than the GeForce RTX 2080, at 4,352 vs. 2,944. It must be a monster at 4K gaming in traditional rasterized titles.
