NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 And RTX 2080 Ti Benchmark Review: Turing Is A Beast

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti: Cryptography, Scientific Analysis, Luxmark

SANDRA's Scientific Analysis benchmark uses OpenCL (AMD) or CUDA (NVIDIA) and runs though an array of General Matrix Multiply (GEMM), N-Body Simulations (NBDY),and Fast Fournier Transformation operations and reports the overall speed in GFLOPs. An aggregate result is generated as well...

The new Turing-based GeForce RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti outpace their previous-gen counterparts here, by a relatively wide margin in most of the tests. The Radeon RX Vega 64 continues to shine in some of the compute tests as well, as evidenced by the GEMM and NBDY results here.

AMD's Radeon RX Vega 64 put up some strong numbers in the overall crypto bandwidth and AES256 tests and the new Turing-based GeForce RTX cards were able to outpace their Pascal-based GeForce GTX counterparts across the board. The GeForce RTX cards were particularly strong in the Hashing Bandwidth test where they led the pack by a wide margin.

LuxMark v3.1
OpenCL Benchmark
LuxMark is a cross-platform, OpenCL-accelerated 3D rendering benchmark. It's a tool based on the open source LuxRender physically-based spectral rendering engine, which accurately models the transportation of light and supports high dynamic range. LuxRender features a number of material types to allow rendering of photo-realistic and artistic scenes. LuxRender is free software, licensed under the GPL, that offers plugins for content creation suites like Blender, Maya, Cinema 4D and 3DS Max.


The new Turing-based GeForce RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti absolutely smoked the Pascal-based GeForce GTX cards in the LuxMark tests. The GeFoce RTX 2080 was significantly faster than even the Titan Xp and the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti was simply in a league of its own. The Radeon RX Vega 64 performed well here too, landing right in between the RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti in two of the three tests.
