Nvidia Titan RTX Review: Gaming, Training, Inferencing, Pro Viz, Oh My!

Performance Results: Gaming at 2560 x 1440

As it stands, Nvidia actively guides gamers toward its GeForce RTX 2080 Ti instead of Titan RTX. Third-party 2080 Tis with substantial overclocks are often just as fast at half of the cost, after all. But neither TU102-based board is really necessary for gaming at 2560 x 1440. In many titles, even with their quality settings cranked up, they run up against maximum frame rate limits or CPU-imposed bottlenecks. With that said, if you own a high-refresh-rate QHD monitor, expect Nvidia’s Titan RTX to serve up blistering performance in most games at their top detail settings.

Six percent more shading resources, nine percent more memory bandwidth, and a GPU Boost clock rate that’s 8% higher than Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition gives Titan RTX a notable advantage in several of our benchmarks, though it doesn’t sweep the entire suite.
