    The hell are you talking about? This game obviously is nearly broken in different aspects with tons of bugs. The 1080ti obviously got almost no attention with optimizations, and no doubt that was totally on purpose.

    Number 1, 1080tis are some of the most sought after cards on the aftermarket, where Nvidia makes nothing. This was accordingly planned by them. It doesn't mean they won't optimize for it, it just means that didn't specifically so those new charts would show HEY DIPSHITS a 1080ti NOW UNDERPERFORMS a 2060 GO OUT AND BUY OUR NEEDS CARDS! YAY!

    or maybe thats just your unfounded opinion, vulkan game optimizations are performed at the game developer end, amd/intel/nvidia can't really screw with the api apart from native shader compilation.

    But I won't substitute your reality for the real one.

    :rolleyes:

    What Rockstar hasn't done is used nvidia's Sampler feedback extension.

    right, because 1440p is again 5.2gb and 4k is 5.9gb. Dude...

    wouldn't really say 16 series is for 1440p tbh.

    So is this where Nvidia stops optimizing pascal, and we all start pretending like a game made to run on the equivalent of an AMD 7800 series is "compute heavy"?

    Wow! This game is really really badly optimized. requiring a $1200 GPU to only play it on 1440p!!! I was not expecting that after the great port of GTA V on PC. maybe RockStar should have stayed with DX11. DX12 (and Volkan) is not easy to optimize for PC hardware with thousands of different configurations.

    For those like me who are trying to find whats giving the biggest hit (because resolution doesn't seem to drastically affect FPS, at least for me.

    It seems reflection quality and the water physics simulation are a big hit if you max them out. Scaling them back nets a pretty big boost and I can't really tell much of an IQ difference so far (i was dipping into low 40s in some scenes and now it stays in mid to high 50s).

    Why? I never expected to run this on my 2080 at 1440p all maxed with 60fps. Did you?

    people are really not understanding the polgyon count, draw distance and dynamic shadow and occlusion being used in this.

    also that ultra settings are not for playing, they are for screenshots.

    Settings to tweak down to medium
    Particles
    Particle lighting quality (particle shadow casting)
    Grass Shadows
    All volumetric settings (these were heavy in MH:W)

    Long shadows off

    Looks like this game needs more work. However, the situation doesn't surprise me when they can't even be bothered to fix the GTA V crashing bug/s.

    I'm gonna sit on the fence. I was always more Buzz Lightyear than Woody.

    Of course I was expecting that. also I should remind you this is not locked 60FPS. it is averaged 60fps on a short few minutes benchmark. some people reporting dips below 30fps even on a 2080ti during gameplay. this is terrible optimization, there is no other excuse for that. RDR2 runs 30fps locked at 4k on Xonex!!! how can it run like this on a $2000 PC???

    Its not terrible optimization, its a new engine doing new things which makes all cards on the market cry at a visual quality not seen in any other title so far.

    We now have "But can it run RDR2"

    Tune your settings!.

    great test HH !


    people of the thread that found a chance to flame .... the game can be tweaked when gta5 came out was also insanely heavy when you max out your settings ... draw back your Anti aliasing ... reduce few settings ... that will give you a 70-80% or so fps boost ...for meaningless visual quality hit ...or nothing you can tell apart with out still images ... jesus so many people acting like the only setting on computer is Ultra maxed out quality and nothing else .

    Really sad to see such bad performance at 4K even with the all mighty 2080Ti.
    @ManuelG Could you ask mr Huang to release the 2080Ti Super ASAP? It's very much needed, thanks! :)

    Hi Hilbert. Can you please go a bit lower with the GPUs that you test? Maybe 1050, 1050TI?

    Fixed it for you mate.

    Although I have to admit, I'd be more curious about whatever number it is they call Big Navi at this point. Not that I think it will outperform a 3080TI, but you never know.

    Oh, and just saying, still not regretting buying a 1440p screen instead of a 4K one.
