The 2080 ti is a big step up from the 1080 ti, but what does that mean for PUBG? Today we are going to check out the performance difference between these cards so that you know what it can do and what it can’t do in 4K, 1440p and in 1080p The review between these 2 cards is made by a gamer and it’s meant for a fellow gamer, this is you by the way

In other words, I won’t show you any of those fancy benchmark tools and so on, what matters for gamers are the frames per second This is something that we know and understand, and this is something that can mean the difference between life and death The cpu that I am using is an intel i7 6900K, and the graphics cards are an ASUS DUAL RTX2080TI and an Asus ROG STRIX 1080TI In the top left corner you will see the Geforce Experience FPS overlay, in the top right corner you will see the steam FPS overlay Most of use use OBS to record or to stream our gameplay to twitch and that is also what I used to record this performance test of PUBG

OBS has a significant impact on the FPS, on the 1080ti this impact costed about 10 fps and on the 2080ti that cost was about 6 fps in 4k I even used display capture, this has an even bigger impact on your system compared to game capture, that way I can show you the worst case scenario I overclocked both of my graphics cards, using Asus gpu tweak II, I just selected the OC mode, nothing more, so this is something that you can easily replicate on your own pc if you have the same cards For all of these tests I used the ultra overall quality settings, the FOV is 103 and the display mode is Fullscreen windowed The only thing that I will change, and I will also show you that on screen, is the resolution

Let’s start off with our running test in the new training mode In 4k, with the 1080 ti we get an average of 50 fps, not bad for a game like this, but if it’s less than 60 frames per second then well it’s not really all that great Keep in mind that everything is set to ultra If we then swap our cards, and we use the 2080 ti then you will get an average of 67 fps, 17 frames more than the 1080 ti There is a catch here, remember that I told you that there is a cost that comes with recording with OBS

For example, before I started the recording with the 1080 ti, I saw 60 frames per second instead of the 50 that you are seeing right now So 4k gaming with the 1080 ti in pubg is possible because you will start off with 60 fps You will notice a big difference when you play on a 1440p monitor instead of on a 4k monitor, now you will get 92 frames per second, this is a major step up from the 50 fps in 4k 90 Frames per second is great, everything runs smoother and it’s much easier to track your enemies But we can do even better than that with the new 2080 ti, this card will give you an average of 122 fps in our running test, 30 frames more than the 1080 ti

Pretty impressive This is the exact same number of fps when you play pubg in 1080p with the 1080ti In other words, the new 2080 ti will give you the same amount of frames at a higher resolution, this is probably the best way to remember the difference So 1080 ti in 1080p is the same fps as the 2080 ti in 1440p That is why this new graphics card is so great

It allows you to play in a higher resolution If we then do our running test in 1080p with the 2080 ti then you will get an average of 140 fps, about 18 frames more compared to the 1080 ti One of the most taxing things that you can do in pubg is to play in one of the bigger cities, for example in yasnaya polyana, if you stand on top of one of the rooftops and you look at the city then your frames will drop, all the way down to 45 fps with the 1080 ti in 4k If you then stand on top of this same rooftop but you look towards the east, then you will get about 50 fps This doesn’t seem like a lot but it’s in 4k, the difference becomes a lot bigger when you play in 1440 or in 1080p

With the 2080 ti you will get about 15 to 20 frames more when you stand on top of this same rooftop, depending on whether you are looking towards the city or away from it Every test that I did with the 2080 ti in 4k, resulted in the same difference, about 15 to 20 frames more every single time In 1440p, looking towards the city with give you 75 fps compared to 88 with the new card Looking away from the city gives you 94 frames compared to 125 So the difference between the cards in terms of fps lies between 13 and 30, depending on how taxing the view is that you are looking at

This number was consistent in all other tests that I did This difference becomes even bigger in 1080p Looking towards the city gives you 86 fps and looking away gives you 130 fps, this is quite a lot This shows how much performance it takes to look at yasnaya polyana With the 2080 ti these numbers will become 92 fps, only a 6 fps improvement and 144 fps, maxing out my monitor, meaning that this number can be even higher than 144

Now the performance gain of the new card in 1080p lies between 6 and a number that is equal or higher than 14 frames per second The moral of the story here is pretty simple, the new 2080 ti was made to play your favorite games at a higher resolution The performance gain in 1080p is much lower than the gain in 1440p, and it is slightly lower than the gain that you will get in 4k While I was doing all of these test to see what the difference between these cards really is, I have just discovered that we can now play pubg, in 4k with 144 frames per second Yes, you heard this right 4K 144 fps in pubg

This is probably the ultimate gaming experience and I will show how you can do that in the next video If you want to get your hands on the ASUS RTX2080 TI, then use the link in the video description, this was the cheapest price that I could find Make sure to like and subscribe if you haven’t done so already and make sure that you check out the 4K 144fps video!
