GPU-Z shows the primary stats of our testing the ZOTAC RTX 2080 Ti. The GPU clocks in at 1370 MHz and can boost up to 1545. Pixel Fillrates run at 143.9 GPixels/s, and Texture Fillrate comes in at 444.7 GTexel/s.

Software Used: Firestorm

ZOTAC supplies Firestorm for the RTX 2080 Ti overclocking and various other settings. A monitor at the center will show different card performance numbers that allow the user to keep an eye on what the GPU is doing.

We set the ZOTAC RTX 2080 Ti Twin Fan to several overclocking configurations with up to a 100 MHz boost. Typically what we saw was the ZOTAC RTX 2080 Ti Twin Fan would reach thermal limits when under heavy loads and throttle down resulting in lower benchmark numbers than at stock configurations. When have seen this on other cards in this class as well. We determined that overclocking the ZOTAC RTX 2080 Ti Twin Fan for our benchmarks was simply not worth the speed increases and ran our tests at stock. A user can fine-tune settings for applications and create profiles which might be worth the time investment. On the other hand, we saved over $200 on this card versus the Founders Edition.

Let us move on and start our testing with computing-related benchmarks.
