The Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti has been announced and it is supposed to be the new graphics card on the market that will replace the Pascal GTX 1080 Ti. The main selling point of the graphics card is that is support Nvidia Ray Tracing, which seems to be a big deal. Digital Foundry did an in-depth analysis of Battlefield V and it seems that even the top of the line Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti is unable to run the game at 30 FPS at 4K with RTX on.
According to the analysis, the game ran at 60 FPS with RTX on at 1080p, sub 60 FPS at 1440p and was unable to reach 30 FPS at 4K. Digital Foundry also mentions that DICE was surprised that the GPU was able to run Battlefield V with RTX on. Keeping in mind that the Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti is the top of the line graphics card that Nvidia has to offer, things do not seem all that impressive.
On the other hand, it is worth mentioning that driver support could make things better. Furthermore, the RTX support is in the alpha phase, at least that is what DICE would have us believe, so things could get better with time. It is also worth noting that while Nvidia RTX does make the game look better, this is not something that the pro players are going to get much out of as they are inclined towards the higher FPS rather than better visuals. You can check out the complete analysis in the video below:
The marketing around Battlefield V has not been all that great and there was a recent Reddit AMA where fans were really not happy about what they learned about the game. Furthermore, the Producer for Engagement & Core Gameplay for Battlefield V even went on to call some people uneducated. The following is what was said:
These are people who are uneducated—they don’t understand that this is a plausible scenario and listen: this is a game. And today gaming is gender-divers, like it hasn’t been before. There are a lot of female people who want to play, and male players who want to play as a badass [woman].
It will be interesting to see how well the Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti will be able to run the game when the final version and proper driver support is introduced.
