Depending on your game. For example, Wolfenstein II runs a staggering 38% better on the RTX2080 (Likely because of it's separate INT32 Blocks.
Don't listen to the Naysayers who say it isn't "Wroth" it, it most definitely is, it's just not a good value. But let's be real for a second, the GTX1080TI wasn't a good value either. $700 for a card that couldn't even run games reliably at 60FPS ultra 4K? Are you kidding me?
Speaking directly to the Gigabyte Card (Which I had the opportunity to test recently) it's actually quite shocking how good a "Modestly Priced" (For the Astronomically overpriced 2080 series is) this card is. It will just about boost to 2000MHZ on its own and still hover around the low 60's. Whatever Gigabyte did on this card worked wonders. I'm normally an EVGA man myself, but Gigabyte is definitely trying to step up their game.
Also, this card uses the Reference PCB which is overkill for the 2080, however Gigabyte's cooler is EXTREMELY EASY to remove, making this an exceptional water cooling card. Literally 4 screws and unplug the fan hearders and the Cooler is off.
If you wind up getting this Card (or any RTX card really) Check the BIOS version of the card. Many have had their Power Limits raised (This one now goes up to 122% power allowance) which really lets RTX run wild. Up to 11,500 Timespy just off the built-in boost.
