NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti SLI Review with NVLink


3DMark Time Spy – DX12

3DMark Time Spy just recently came out and it is the latest and greatest DirectX 12 benchmark test for gaming PCs running Windows 10. This DirectX 12 Feature Level 11_0 benchmark utilizes a pure DirectX 12 game engine that supports features like asynchronous compute, explicit multi-adapter, and multi-threading! The developers opted to use DirectX 12 Feature Level 11_0 to ensuring wide compatibility with DirectX 11 hardware through DirectX 12 drivers.

With DirectX 12 on Windows 10, game developers can significantly improve the multi-thread scaling and hardware utilization of their titles to draw more objects, textures and effects for your viewing enjoyment. 3DMark Fire Strike is a great high-end DirectX 11 benchmark test, but doesn’t really show off what new graphics cards can do on a DirectX 12 game title that will have much more going on while you are playing.

3DMark Time Spy Settings

We ran 3DMark Time Spy with the standard settings and got the following results:

In this DX12 benchmark found the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti scored 11,824 points and the GeForce GTX 2080 Ti SLI setup came in with a score of 18,927 points. This is an improvement of 60% in the overall score. If you look at the Graphics Score the performance went up 93%. That is the same improvement that we saw on Strange Brigade, so that is now two tests that we ran that gave us 93% scaling!

Here are the FPS results for Game Test 1 (GT1) and Game Test 2 (GT2) that are done in 3DMark Time Spy at the 1440P display resolution. We are seeing 99.4% scaling in GT2 and 86.4% scaling in GT1. It doesn’t get much better than that folks and it would be amazing if real world game titles saw scaling like that!
