EVGA XC Ultra Nvidia RTX 2080
The graphics card market has been in a weird state of flux recently. The RTX cards launched to much fanfare and just as much hate. Sure, they’re bloody fast, but they’re also darn expensive. Furthermore, at launch, DLSS, DXR and more were not ready for gamers to enjoy. That wasn’t Nvidia’s fault though, they made the hardware, then the software follows from developers. Fortunately, that’s happening now, and the real value of RTX cards are starting to shine.
Today, I have the latest EVGA RTX 2080 XC Ultra Gaming on our test bench. The current “mid-range” card of the RTX series, but dialled up and tuned by the experts at EVGA. It’s a little more expensive than the stock card of course, but it’s also faster. Well, it should be faster, but how much faster is what we aim to find out.
