While NVIDIA did not reveal any benchmarks for its new RTX graphics card, we got a taste of what the high-end model, the RTX 2080Ti, can achieve in a specific current-gen tech demo. As NVIDIA’s Jensen Huang claimed, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080Ti was able to run the Unreal Engine 4 Infiltrator tech demo in 4K with 78fps at a “quality that has never be seen before“.
In order to give you an idea, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX1080Ti can run the Infiltrator tech demo with the very same settings at 30-something frames per second. Or at least that’s what Huang claimed at NVIDIA’s GeForce Gaming Celebration event.
Now we don’t know whether this special tech demo was using the RT cores of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080Ti in order to accelerate its performance or not (something that could very well explain the performance difference between the RTX2080Ti and the GTX1080Ti). Unfortunately, and since NVIDIA has not provided any performance figures in current-gen games that do not use ray tracing, we don’t know how much faster the RTX2080Ti will be compared to the GTX1080Ti.
Still, it’s pretty cool witnessing a single GPU running the Unreal Engine 4 Infiltrator tech demo in 4K with more than 60fps.
Below you will find a video showing the Infiltrator tech demo running on a GTX1080Ti (do note that SLI is not working in this video so only the one GPU was being used, and that the tech demo NVIDIA showcased was running at higher settings than those featured below).
