I have a setup running a GIGABYTE AORUS GeForce RTX 2080 XTREME 8G Graphics Card. Downloaded a fresh install of Star Citizen and jumped into game. On the highest settings the card is reading 100% utilization at all times. Is this normal still? Would have thought it would handle it a little better for the cost.
Ongoing Discussion How Much of a Difference Does Ray Tracing Make (Nvidia RTX)?These people did a blind test to try to find out: Pretty interesting how it turned out.
I recently purchased a GTX1070ti and then they come out with the RTX2070. Do I feel gipped? price of the RTX2070 compared to the GTX1070ti: lowest seen prices: $550 vs $360 Nope, not at all. Sure, the 2070 has GDDR6 mem over the GDDR5 the 1070ti has, but the hardware points I worry about have negligible differences. Granted, while the RTX does not depend on CUDA cores so much (the nature of Ray Tracing), I'm not one for the new bells and whistles if I do not have a practical need for them. The above link is just one comparison and I just focused on the technical specs and not actual performance. This second link is a start for that. The benchmarks show a 78% increase in multi-rendering over the 1070ti. The RTX2060 may be someone else's entre to the RTX world, but I have avoided the 60-series nvidia cards as consumer level performance GPUs. Nothing surprising in this graphic: I am not authoritative....
