By Anthony Garreffa from Jan 10, 2019 @ 16:00 CST

Test System Specs

For this test I used my new Core i9-9900K test bench which is powered by the GIGABYTE Z390 AORUS PRO motherboard and Hyper-X Predator DDR4 RAM. There'll be an article about this system coming soon.

  • CPU: Intel Core i9-9900K
  • Cooler: Corsair H150i PRO
  • Motherboard: GIGABYTE Z390 AORUS PRO
  • RAM: 32GB Hyper-X DDR4
  • PSU: Corsair AX860i PSU

Benchmark Results


Benchmark Results & Final Thoughts

There you have it. Some official real-time ray tracing benchmark results that see the flagship GeForce RTX 2080 Ti really take off and showing its strength as an $1199 graphics card, but remember: this is just a benchmark. Other than Battlefield V and a bunch of other games coming down the pipes, this is just a benchmark to show 'what if' in the ray tracing world of gaming.


NVIDIA dominates a benchmark that only its cards can run in so there's nothing to really talk about here in terms of performance until there are competing cards with real-time ray tracing abilities, and there's nothing on the market other than Turing-based GPUs. AMD is out in the cold with this one until UL Benchmarks provides an update that lets us test cards other than the new GeForce RTX cards.

Other than that, enjoy the results from the world's first dedicated real-time ray tracing benchmarks for gamers, as UL puts it.
