There’s no doubt that the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080Ti graphics card is quite expensive even for hardcore gamers alike. And while you’d expect it to deliver when it comes to playing high end games, that doesn’t seem to be the case when you try to run a number of triple A games at 4K 60fps. On its ultra settings, the rtx 2080ti can’t handle several AAA games.
It’s important to note the difference between rtx 2080 and the rtx 2080Ti. The rtx 2080Ti is definitely more capable of handling a few AAA games unlike the rtx 2080 which can hardly handle any.
The verge tested a number of games such as destiny 2, far cry 5, shadow of the tomb raider, PUBG, and it’s a shame the rtx 2080 had a difficult time reaching 60fps at 4K resolution. But on the rtx 2080ti, those same games were able to reach 60fps at 4K resolution with specific detail settings. But there’s also a caveat, you’ll need a high-end monitor such as the Acer Predator X27 monitor.
On the contrary, the dark side of gaming also tested a number of triple A games such as ghost recon wildlands, kingdom come: deliverance, dues ex: mankind divided, monster hunter world, hellblade: senua’s sacrifice and final fantasy XV. And guess what? All these games were unable to achieve 60 fps at 4K resolution on the rtx 2080ti graphics card.
So while Nvidia’s promise of 4K gaming at 60fps with the rtx 2080 simply doesn’t hold up at the moment, you can still achieve this milestone with some older AAA game titles or when you’re willing to compromise on some detail settings in your game and PC.
In conclusion, we feel like the high price of the rtx 2080ti graphics card isn’t justifiable at the moment and you’re better off buying a cheaper graphics card that meets most of your gaming needs. Playing at 4K at 60fps isn’t a necessity at the moment but we believe in the near future manufacturers will produce graphic s cards that can achieve the full 4K at 60fps without any issues. Only time will tell!
