Today web ring a fairly amazing comparison: Titan V vs Nvidia RTX 2080 TI, two monsters when it comes to GPU’s, yet they have so many differences needed to be pointed out, and that’s what we are going to do with this post. These two graphic cards are probably considered the champions out there when it comes to GPU’s, but how do they differ? Firstly, let’s talk a little bit about each one.
The Titan V. Yes, the monster out there with a price reaching up to $3,000, is a GPU, according to its creators, Nvidia, not designed for “only” gaming, meaning that you won’t squeeze it hard enough if you are thinking on only playing video-games with it… Considering its price in difference to the RTX 2080 TI costing around $1,200, and was in fact, made for gaming, this is a huge factor to consider when deciding which one fits your needs the most.
Now, why would someone buy the Titan V instead of the RTX 2080 TI? Well, apparently the Titan V can be used for other thinks, but the most talked about online is for machine learning workloads. Although you can play games with the Titan V, and you will probably play games at 4K with no problems, the RTX 2080 TI will have a better performance when it comes to games in some cases since they were made for different purposes. And the price! If you are only thinking on playing games, do not make the mistake of spending about double the amount for the Titan V when you can easily enjoy 2018 games at 4K in ultra-settings with the RTX 2080 TI.
There’s something you have to consider though.
Many users consider that the RTX architecture is still not worth it due to the fact that literally no game out there is taking advantage of this type of technology. Some have claimed that the GTX 1080 TI or the GTX 1070 TI are still pretty nice choices when it comes to gaming and you’ll definitely be able to play games in 4K at ultra-settings perfectly.
For example: When playing Forza Horizon 4, the differences in FPS between the GTX 1080 TI and the RTX 2080 TI was no big, with the 1080 TI running it at 65 FPS and the RTX 2080 TI running it at 88 FPS.
When playing The Witcher III, the RTX 2080 TI ran it around 67 FPS when the 1080 TI ran it around 52 FPS.
For GTV, the RTX 2080 TI ran it around 81 FPS when the 1080 TI ran it around 52 FPS.
The differences in FPS between the RTX 2080 TI and the 1080 TI was around 10 to 30 FPS in 4K at ultra-settings. Consider that the GTX 1080 TI costs around $700 in comparison to the RTX 2080 which costs $1200. Also, consider that many have had some problems with the RTX 2080, getting blue screens or more serious problems out of nowhere.
Sadly, game benchmarks for the Titan V are still unavailable. Yet, they seem to be pretty similar to the RTX 2080 TI, only a little slower in some cases.
