NVIDIA's new Turing architecture powering the RTX GPUs features many forward looking tech and hardware stages, but many of these new advancements are not used in traditional raster workloads, especially in older games. To test the new RTX 2080 against the top-end Pascal chips in "legacy" gaming, we go racing at Imola in pCARS2.
The frame times are very tidy in Project CARS 2, all of the runs are stutter free. The GTX 1080 Ti has the edge over the RTX 2080, it's more than 10% faster. The resolution was cranked up to 4K and every possible setting was maxed out. One can get much higher frame rate by opting for SMAA instead of the very taxing MSAA.
