Question: 2 RTX 2060 Supers or 1 RTX 2080TI

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I am not very knowledgable about this kind of thing, but the question I have is which is better? Running 2 RTX 2060 Supers or running a single RTX 2080TI? Base performance, not including overclocking, heating, or power consumption. Thanks!

For RELION, having two RTX2060s is preferable to one 2080Ti since you will not be able to run 3D autorefinements since the half-maps cannot be stored comfortably on one card. Having said this for 2D classification and particle picking a single 2080Ti would be better.

 

Since you didn't specify the use case, I just gave one case from mine.

for gaming a single 2080TI is better


Im with the mentaility of "IF IM NOT SURE IF ITS ENOUGH COOLING, GO OVERKILL"

 

PS: i cooled a Ryzen 5 3600(65W) with ID cooling SE207 (200W-250W tdp lol)

Why do people just keep on asking about SLI over and over and over? Is it that difficult to, I dunno, search the forums? It's been answered quite literally a billion times by now.

SLI isn't fully utilized in modern titles. If gaming is your primary focus you're better off getting the 2080TI

Well you see, the subtly in this particular question is that a 2060 super is not even SLI/NVLink compatible; and therefore OP may not be asking in the context of gaming (though I doubt the OP is a RELION user either :p) . Afterall, why would you get two graphics card that aren't even SLI/NVlink capable at all?

There are many questions on here asked and answered via a quick Google search.

If they were planning to use them for e.g. some heavy computational, non-gaming load, they would most likely either stated stated that or wouldn't have needed to ask the question to begin with, though.

OP is being extremely vague here. If he ever reply's we can figure out WTH he's on about.

I was speaking in gaming terms (including vr if that is of any consequence), I've just started researching building a computer (watching LTT's all ROG build started the snowball) so please forgive me in my lack of knowledge of the general subject. In the aforementioned video they used 2 rtx 2080ti's. To cut costs as I can't afford those both at the same time I looked into downgrading it to 2060 ti's and after watching his video on gtx 1660 super (this one) and how it performs on par with the gtx 1660 ti I began to wonder if 2 rtx 2060 supers could compete (gaming wise) with a rtx 2080 ti (though now I know they lack some features to make that possible)

Do you have a monitor in mind for this build? Your monitor is a huge factor in recommending a GPU. RTX 2060S's do not support SLI, running two for gaming would be a total waste.

My plan is to get the 4k monitor in their Complete ROG Build video (or something equivalent) eventually some time after the build, though I have a 4k tv to act as a place holder till then

One 2080ti will be a great fit for your purposes. Game developers are moving away from optimizing for multiple GPU setups so your money is better spent on the single best card you can afford.

Thanks! this was definitely helpful! and sorry if this kind of info was already in the forums, but I didn't even know where to start tbh. A lot of info to absorb

It's a lot of information so just take your time, do your research, and if you have any questions along the way, ask.

If you're wanting this for gaming, SLI is dead (and so is crossfire). More often than not you'll end up with bugs, worse performance, or no change in performance from using SLI compared to a single GPU. Very few games still properly support it. I'll always suggest getting a single more powerful card over multiple weaker cards.
