Here at HEXUS we have been watching the incremental reveal of the 3DMark Port Royal DXR benchmark closely. The latest news being that the benchmark is due to go mainstream on 8th January, priced as a $2.99 upgrade, or included in the $29.99 3DMark Advanced Edition suite after that date (falls within CES 2019).

Ahead of general availability, a collection of pro-overclockers got to test this first dedicated raytracing gaming benchmark software at the recent GALAX GOC 2018 event in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Now those results have become available, published on the dedicated 3DMark Port Royal Hall of Fame, via WCCFTech.

Out in the lead by a significant margin in the newly published HoF is overclocker 'Rauf' (Tobias Bergström). We can see that Rauf used the Galax RTX 2080 Ti overclocked to 2.640 MHz (core clock) and 2.088 MHz (memory clock). The score of 11069 was achieved using liquid nitrogen cooling. As previously published the Port Royal benchmark runs at 1440p - and the GTX 2080 Ti, Intel Core i9-9900K, and ASRock Z390 Phantom Gaming-ITX/ac powered PC could only muster an average 51.25 FPS.

With Rauf's muscle-bound overclocked system achieving somewhat under a 60FPS average, one wonders what more modest systems are capable of, running Port Royal with the same settings. The full table currently available shows some overclockers achieved a lot lower scores than Rauf, though they all wielded the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, Intel's 9900K, and matching modern components.

Sounds like Futuremark need to work on their optimisations of DXR to me…

Still I guess it doesn't really matter with a benchmark - as long as its consistent it doesn't matter. I'm sure we'll still get some idiots who jump in again try and make out this shows how “bad” the RTX line is etc etc though.

It seems RTX has found itself in the same category as The Big Bang Theory and Nickleback, where it's cool to hate them for no good reason.

I couldn't care less if my card scored 4FPS or 70000FPS in a benchmark, as long as the benchmark is consistent and lets me compare the score against other cards in the future.

Am I right in thinking you've got the 2080? I'm sure I saw you talking about it in the BF V thread.
Yeah you are right - its very much cool to hate on Intel and Nvidia at the moment ;)

I do - following the latest patch it's running at 70-75 FPS, 1440p, DXR on medium, everything else on ultra. Finally at the level where I am happy to leave it on for MP and SP :)

I'm a firm believer that there is no such thing as a bad graphics card, just bad pricing.

After the mining craze the market is rather price sensitive. Perhaps if they had released it next year Nvidia would have had less resistance, but instead they asked customer to hand over the cost of a second hand car for features they can't see in regular use.

Edit: Had a quick look and I see that Overclockers will sell you a Palit 2080ti for “only” £950. I assumed they were still £1500 which is what my wife paid for her second hand MX5 Sport, which is way more fun than any graphics card and all its features are fully supported by all roads and race circuits :D
“2.640 MHz (core clock) and 2.088 MHz (memory clock)”

2.6Mhz impressive… ;)
