Asus ROG Strix RTX 2080 OC Desktop Graphics Card Review

Sebastian Bade, Tanja Hinum-Balaz (translated by Finn D. Boerne), 10/31/2018

4K? No problem! The successor to Nvidia's Pascal series is the Turing architecture. Let's find out what the new graphics cards are capable of and whether or not an upgrade makes sense. Today's contestant: The Asus ROG RTX Strix 2080 OC graphics card.

A few days ago we reviewed the Asus ROG RTX Strix 2070 OC, the low-end of the current Turing line-up. Now, we are going to take a closer look at the Asus ROG RTX Strix 2080 OC, the second-fastest Turing GPU and only second to the RTX 2080 Ti. At the time of writing, the GPU sold for around 950 Euros (~$1083) in Europe, and US prices were not yet available. In other words: It was around 300 Euros (~$342) more expensive than the RTX 2070 but still a whopping 500 Euros (~$570) cheaper than the 2080 Ti. At 1,450 Euros (~$1653) the latter is even more expensive than the Nvidia Titan X when it was first launched.

Asus ROG provided us with an ROG RTX Strix 2080 OC sample. It is one of the fastest GPUs currently available. It is overclocked by default and offers an impressive gaming performance. Its massive cooler is not only capable of keeping it cool under sustained load but was also pleasantly quiet.

External displays can be attached via 2x DisplayPort 1.4, 2x HDMI 2.0b, or USB-C for VR devices. Internally, two 8-pin connectors are required, and both the RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti support dual GPUs via the newer so-called NVLink connector, the successor to SLI.

The Asus ROG RTX Strix 2080 OC runs faster than Nvidia’s Founders Edition. With a turbo boost of 1,890 MHz in OC mode it clocked 90 MHz higher. Two other modes can be selected with Asus GPU Tweak: a Silent mode (1,830 MHz) and a Gaming mode (1,860 MHz). The modes also modify the power target, from 110% in OC mode to 100% in Gaming mode and 90% in Silent mode. As it sits right in-between OC and Silent mode we decided to run all of our tests and benchmark in Gaming mode.

In addition to these three presets you can obviously also manipulate clock speeds manually.

A special feature is the ROG RTX Strix 2080 OC’s dual BIOS featuring a Performance mode and a Quiet mode. The fans are always on in Performance mode, resulting in higher noise emissions when idle. In return, temperatures were lower. In Quiet mode the fan is off until a temperature threshold of 55 °C is reached. We ran all of our tests and benchmarks in Performance mode.

Synthetic Benchmarks

The Asus ROG Strix RTX 2080 OC performed right in-between a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition and the Asus ROG Strix RTX 2070 OC. In 3DMark, it was up to 16% faster. Compared to its immediate Pascal-based predecessor the RTX 2080 OC was even up to 30% faster. At the time of writing AMD does not have a GPU capable of competing head-to-head with the 2080 OC. The Radeon RX Vega 64 performed similarly to a GeForce GTX 1080 and RTX 2070, but it was certainly not fit to hold a candle to the RTX 2080.

Synthetic Benchmarks @ Intel Core i9-9900K

While running our tests we got our hands on an Intel Core i9-9900K system with a higher IPC than AMD’s Ryzen. Thus, we decided to run a few benchmarks on Intel’s octa-core platform as well. The Intel CPU was faster than AMD’s competitor, however the differences were almost negligible and no more than 3-5%. In other words: The Intel test setup was not significantly faster than our AMD setup.

Gaming Benchmarks

Running our synthetic benchmarks suite already hinted at the RTX 2080 OC’s level of performance. Running actual games, however, is a whole different story. In order to determine the 2080 OC’s gaming performance we ran some current games, and it performed very well overall. In some games, it even outperformed the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. All current games should run very smoothly in 4K.

A noteworthy difference to the Asus ROG Strix RTX 2070 OC was only measurable in resolutions above 1080p. This too backs up our impression that the 2080 OC was made for 4K gaming. Those who game in FHD or WQHD resolutions will be perfectly fine with an RTX 2070.

Compute Performance

In addition to gaming, modern high-end GPUs are also often used for professional GPGPU computation, a stomping ground traditionally reserved for and dominated by Nvidia’s even more expensive Quadro series. In order to determine the RTX 2080’s GPGPU performance we ran Luxmark and Computemark. In Luxmark, the RTX 2080 OC clearly and effortlessly outperformed Nvidia’s Titan X. In Computemark, it was on a par with the GTX 1080 Ti and Titan X.

Compared to the RTX 2070 the RTX 2080’s 640 extra CUDA cores resulted in 6 and 11% higher performance in Luxmark and Computemark, respectively.

Emissions

Since we ran the GPU in Performance mode the fans were always on, and as a result the GPU was always audible. When idle, the fans ran at 23% or 800-900 RPM. Under load in Gaming mode, they ramped up to 51% and became very noticeable. Thanks to its three axial fans the noise emitted was much more pleasant than on previous generations with radial fans.

Given the higher power target in OC mode the GPU got slightly warmer as well, and the fans ran at around 2,000 RPM. Accordingly, they have plenty of wiggle room (45%) for those dreaded hot summer days.

The highest temperature we were able to measure was just 67 °C. Keep in mind though that we used an open case during our tests. A closed case is going to require adequate ventilation to keep the GPU cool and prevent heat accumulation.

At just 67 °C at an increased power target of 125% Asus chose the right cooler for the job.

Power consumption in Gaming mode was slightly higher than for the Founders Edition (240 vs. 225 W). In OC mode and the associated increased power target HWinFo reported an average of 264 W under load. Increasing the power target to 125% resulted in an average power consumption of 291 W with short peaks above 300 W.

Using a calibrated Metrahit Energy power meter we also determined whole-system power consumption. When idle, the power meter read 99 W. When gaming, it read 380 W. Both measurements were taken without the monitor. The game chosen for this test was The Witcher 3 in 1080p (High preset).

As was the case with the Asus ROG Strix RTX 2070 OC, our current review unit also did not have much wiggle room for additional overclocking.

Both OC models are already overclocked ex factory and feature a higher turbo boost than specified by Nvidia. We tried manually adjusting the dials and overclocking even further using Asus GPU Tweak but were ultimately unable to increase performance noticeably. The GPU did not perform any better in our synthetic benchmarks.

In other words: The Asus ROG Strix RTX 2080 OC is already running at its maximum and optimum clock speed. Further improvements will require heavy modding, such as a power mod, water cooling, or liquid nitrogen cooling.

The Asus ROG Strix RTX 2080 OC is one of the fastest currently available GPUs. In our benchmarks, the factory-overclocked graphics card was faster than a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. Its 8 GB of GDDR6 VRAM wasn't a bottleneck, as can be seen in the excellent high resolution performance. Unfortunately, pricing is unsatisfactory due to a lack of competition. Our review unit sold for 949 Euros (~$1082) at the time of writing, and was thus about as expensive as a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti.

If you don’t need the Turing architecture’s new features, a used GPU might be the better choice. We advise against upgrading from a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti to an RTX 2080 - performance was not that much better and the highly praised new features, such as DLSS or real-time raytracing, are nowhere to be seen. These will have to wait for implementation by game developers, but for now it’s uncertain how these features will pan out. Not a single game with real-time raytracing and DLSS support was available at the time of writing.

The Asus ROG Strix RTX 2080 OC is aimed primarily at gamers looking for a GPU capable of running current games in UHD and high details.

For all others, the RTX 2070 might be the smarter choice as it offers a much better price-performance ratio than the RTX 2080.

If you already own a Pascal-based graphics card you should think twice before investing around $1,000. A GeForce GTX 1070 was significantly slower than the RTX 2080, however a GTX 1080 was not.

The Asus ROG Strix RTX 2080 OC requires a very fast CPU in order to deliver peak performance. Our benchmarks showed that AMD's Ryzen 7 2700X was easily capable of keeping up with Intel's Core i9-9900K. Unfortunately, we were unable to run any gaming benchmarks on the Intel platform due to time constraints.

We would like to thank Asus ROG Germany for providing us with the Asus ROG Strix RTX 2080 OC graphics card.
