ASUS Turbo-RTX2080-8G Blower-Style GeForce RTX 2080 Performance Review

SPECworkstation 3

We have only started using the new SPECworkstation 3 benchmark, so we do not have a full set of graphics cards to compare. We have a number of GPUs in the pipeline, so these results will fill out quickly.

SPECworkstation 3 output using the three cards we have run with this benchmark with the ASUS Turbo-RTX2080-8G showing good results.

ASUS Turbo-RTX2080-8G Graphics Related Benchmarks

Here we will run the ASUS Turbo-RTX2080 through all of our graphics-related benchmarks.

On January 8th, 2019, UL Benchmarks released its ray tracing benchmark for NVIDIA RTX 2000 series graphics cards called Port Royal which is included with the 3DMark suite if you purchase the Port Royal Upgrade. You can read about this here.

Port Royal is the first benchmark that tests the RT (Ray Tracing) feature on these cards. At this time GPU we have benchmarked using Port Royal, but we have other that we will enter it in future reviews.

This short YouTube video gives you an idea of how the benchmark runs.

Note here, we are zooming in to show some differences as the Game Mode v. OC Mode was sub 1% delta. In the future, as we add additional cards to this list, we will reset this chart to have a zero base.

Moving on to the rest of the graphics benchmarks:

On our first benchmark, we see the ASUS Turbo-RTX2080 is right up there with the ASUS ROG Strix GTX 1080 Ti OC which is a premium Pascal graphics card.

Overall we see the ASUS Turbo-RTX2080-8G scores very close to the ASUS ROG Strix GTX1080 Ti OC card.

Next we are going to look at the ASUS Turbo-RTX2080-8G power and temperature tests, a key factor for blower-styler cooler GPUs, and then give our final words.

  1. Would love to see some compute benchmarks between MI60 and MI50 and the Tesla’s.
    We already have enough gaming engine benchmarks and we all know that drivers are optimized for spec workloads.

  2. I’d really like to see you test the claim that blower-style cards do better in server cases than dual-axial designs.

  3. tomraid I think they’re talking about when you have 4 or 8 in a server. Look at their deeplearning10 or deeplearning11 builds.

    I can say we sell those based on Supermicro servers. We had a >25% annual GPU failure rate on gaming 2-3 fan coolers in those servers, when they even fit. Many gaming ones are too tall to fit. I think it’s just common knowledge now that you use blowers in 4 and 8 GPU servers.

    In workstations we make for clients with only 1-2 GPUs the gaming ones work great.

  4. Unbelievable the Review is Excellent MR. Harmon

    *This only tells me only the 2080Ti will be the BEST I plan on getting 2 2080 Ti’s
    Please do a Review on the 2080 Ti Please
    Excellent Review!
