We talked about the RTX 2080 TI vs the Titan V, but what about a comparison between the RTX 2080 TI vs Titan XP now? This will be tricky, and we will probably mention the 1080 TI as a pillar to compare the performance of both graphic cards. Taking this in mind, here we go:
Let’s talk about the Titan XP first. The Titan XP has 11GB GDDR5 video ram and its cost goes around $1,200 in comparison to the acclaimed GTX 1070 TI which price goes around $400 to $450 and the GTX 1080 TI which costs $700. Nvidia itself claimed that the Titan XP wouldn’t be able to outperform the GTX 1080 TI when it comes to gaming, since the whole Titan series was not designed for “Only Games”, meaning that if you are thinking on only playing games with it, you won’t be able to squeeze its high-full potential.
Now, the RTX 2080 TI is the newest graphic card using the RTX architecture and 11GB GDDR6 video ram. It was designed to be far better than the GTX 1080 TI yet, as expected, its prices surpass that of the GTX 1080 TI by a fair amount, costing $1,200 (Although Nvidia itself said that you may be able to find it for $900, still being more expensive than the GTX 1080 TI). The RTX 2080 TI was mostly designed to run 4K games at more than 60 FPS, which was impossible for the 1080 TI, running most games around 50 FPS. According to a comparison found online where the GTX 1080 TI’s performance was compared to the RTX 2080 TI when talking about FPS, a difference between 15 to 30 FPS could be noticed. Of course, 4K games running far smoother than expected was a great result, yet many users are complaining about the fact that its price is far too high considering the improvement in performance between the two graphic cards.
Of course, considering the fact that the RTX 2080 TI is equal (or even superior) when it comes to games to the Titan V, which is a better version of the Titan XP (And far more expensive, costing $3,000), the RTX 2080 TI is far better for gaming than the Titan XP.
There’s a problem with the RTX 2080 TI though. Being extremely expensive is one of its disadvantages, yet there’s another problem. The RTX architecture is yet to be used for games. Not only that, but the RTX 2080 TI has reportedly been having some problems among users with its extremely high heat levels. Most of the problems where found in the Founders Edition of these graphic cards, and over-heating was not the only problem. Some users claimed to suffer from slow-game performance, blue screens and their graphic cards suddenly dying while playing games. Apparently, some of then even reached 95 grades. This becomes a problem when activating then new ray tracing system, which is the new RTX architecture system that is claimed to bring more realism to games, yet over heats most of RTX graphic cards when playing.
