ASUS GeForce RTX 2080 OC Overview

  • 1Description

Based on the Turing architecture and designed to handle the graphical demands of 4K gaming, the ASUS Republic of Gamers Strix GeForce RTX 2080 OC Graphics Card brings the power of real-time ray tracing and AI to your PC games. It also features enhanced technologies to improve the performance of VR applications, including Variable Rate Shading, Multi-View Rendering, and VRWorks Audio.

The front panel of the card features a variety of outputs. There are two DisplayPort 1.4 outputs, two HDMI 2.0b outputs, and one USB Type-C port with the VirtualLink standard. The RTX 2080 is not just about high-resolution gaming. Computationally intensive programs can utilize the GPU's 2944 cores to accelerate tasks using CUDA or other APIs.

For cooling, ASUS implemented triple Axial-tech fans. The Axial fans reduces the size of the fan's hub, which allows for longer blades and an added barrier ring that increases durability and downward air pressure through the heatsink. The fans are also rated IP5X for dust resistance. There is also Aura Sync RGB lighting on the shroud and backplate. Using Aura Sync software, you can sync the RGB lights with other ASUS products for a customized gaming setup. With Aura Sync, you can sync to music, temperature-based color changing, or select from a variety of patterns and static options.

Real-Time Ray Tracing
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX platform enables real-time ray tracing of objects and environments with physically accurate shadows, reflections, refractions, and global illumination. The RTX 2080 features 8 GigaRays per second and up to 57T RTX-OPS*.

*Equivalent aggregate math operations contributed by the Turing Shaders, CUDA Cores, Tensor Cores, and RT Cores needed to render RTX graphics.
USB Type-C with VirtualLink
VirtualLink is an open industry standard that enables next-gen VR headsets to connect with PCs and other devices using a single, high-bandwidth USB Type-C connector. The Alternate Mode of USB Type-C simplifies and speeds up VR setup time, avoiding key obstacles to VR adoption. VirtualLink connects with VR headsets to simultaneously deliver four high-speed HBR3 DisplayPort lanes, which are scalable for future uses, a USB 3.1 Gen 2 data channel for supporting high-resolution cameras and sensors and provides up to 27W of power.
SLI Ready
With a compatible motherboard and a connecting bracket, two or more NVIDIA GPUs of the same model can combine processing power using NVIDIA's Scalable Link Interface (SLI). How the cards work together can be customized to suit your preferences. Alternate frame rendering has each alternating card prepare the next frame, essentially multiplying the capabilities of a single card's maximum capable frame rate output. Each card in the configuration can also be used to improve anti-aliasing by being able to process an image in parallel with the other cards before filtering out jagged edges.

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX NVLink Bridge (sold separately) provides 50 times the available transfer bandwidth of previous technologies. Delivering smooth gameplay, it's an effective way to enjoy surround gaming and it's only compatible with the GeForce RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti graphics cards.

Note: The benefits of SLI will vary based on component configuration.
NVIDIA GPU Boost 4.0
Boosts the card's clock speed in real-time based on the target temperature. If the card is running below the set target temperature, GPU Boost 4.0 will increase the clock speed to improve performance. The target temperature can be reset depending on your preference, so you can have the card run more quietly for everyday tasks and older games, and run at full tilt during intense high-resolution gaming sequences.
NVIDIA Ansel
With Ansel, gamers can compose the gameplay shots they want, pointing the camera in any direction and from any vantage point within a gaming world. They can capture screenshots at up to 32 times the screen resolution, and then zoom in where they choose without losing fidelity. With photo-filters, they can add effects in real-time before taking the shot. And they can capture 360-degree stereo photospheres for viewing in a VR headset or Google Cardboard.
CUDA
NVIDIA's parallel computing platform which enables an increase in computing performance by harnessing the parallel nature of GPU processing. CUDA-compatible applications can assign intensive parallel computing tasks, such as real-time video rendering, to the GPU to process, freeing up the computer's CPU to run other tasks.
G-SYNC Ready
When used with a monitor that has G-SYNC hardware installed, the monitor's refresh rate will sync and lock with the graphics card's output frame rate. Establishing this sync removes tearing and stuttering which can result from conventional fixed screen refresh rates, especially important for gaming in stereoscopic 3D. An additional benefit of G-SYNC is reduced lag so gamers will benefit from the improved command response time as well.

    ASUS GeForce RTX 2080 OC Reviews

    Republic of Gamers Strix GeForce RTX 2080 OC Graphics Card is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from happy i bought it well i just did a new gaming pc build around black friday was going to get the 2070 then said f it ill go big.coming from a i5 2500k , 970gtx and 8gb ddr3.now i5 9600k,rtx2080,16gb ddr4 3200.im very happy the 2080 gives me 140+ - fps with ultra setting on 2k monitor.so far so good :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best 2080 there is I know the 20xx generation is somewhat lackluster across the board, but if youre in the market for a 2080, this is the best model available.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice card, good performance Good performance. Low temperature and very silent!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Coolest, quietest gpu Ive ever owned The triple fan variant of the Asus 2080 is the business! Under full load in most games and benchmarks this thing is usually in the mid-sixty Celsius range.  Thats unreal. My CPU hits higher temps! Not only that but its quiet! There is a toggle switch on the side of the card; you can choose performance mode or quiet mode. (The temps I mentioned above are in Performance mode) Initially I was going to run it in Quiet mode but its quiet enough in Performance mode. However in Q mode the fans dont even spin up until you hit 55 Celsius. The fan curve is much less aggressive, so you can expect a 10+ degree increase in temps. This card has RGB but can be toggled on/off with a physical button on the card. I dont want to install software to turn the RGB off and manipulate the fan curve. The 2 aforementioned toggles on the card along with its cool quiet performance is why I chose this gpu. Yes, in most benchmarks its equal or only slightly above the 1080ti in traditional games. If youre considering this card youre betting on Nvidias two new upcoming technologies (Ray Tracing and DLSS) to make this thing worth the money over a 1080ti. When games release using DLSS, there will be a HUGE performance boost over the previous gen cards. If youre not counting on that, save your cash and buy a 10 series. I wanted the coolest quietest gpu I could find for my new build. This is it, and im 100% with my purchase. (Make sure you have room in your case, this thing is a foot long!)
