RTX 2080 Ti Underperforming?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

At 1080p I'm struggling in games like GTA V and Hunt: Showdown to achieve anything above 90fps. My monitor is 144hz and VSync is disabled in each title. Comparing my GPU to other videos showcasing the games running in 4k around 120fps~ is killing me on the inside :(


I would seriously love the help

Shadow Of The Tomb Raider Highest Preset 1080p


At 1080p you are getting bottlenecks. 1080p is sort of the realm of CPUs with more powerful cores.

Your CPU is better suited for 1440p and 4k.


This is with a EVGA 2080 ti XC at stock settings with a i7 8086k at 5ghz.  Note the difference in the "GPU Bound" numbers.





RIG#1 CPU: Intel i7 8086k | Motherboard: ASUS ROG Maximus X Hero | RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 32GB DDR4 3200 | GPU: EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 ti FTW3 ULTRA | PSU: Corsair CORSAIR AX860W | Case: Cooler Master HAF 922 | Cooler: Noctua NH-D15 | SSD: Samsung 970 EVO 2TB | Monitor: LG 38" 3840 x 1600 75hz

Yep 2nd gen of Ryzen still wasn't amazing for gaming. 3rd gen still lags behind on that too, although it's close.
