RTX 2080 does poorly in Firestrike. It's even outperformed by the 1080ti.
However, change the benchmark to DX12 Timespy and the story takes a turn, with the 2080 coming out ahead.
RTX 2080 also consistently outpaces the 1080ti in most titles, not by a lot, but it's usually consistently ahead. Titles like Rainbow Six Siege and Wolfenstein 2 it's massively ahead. 1080ti tends to do better in older titles.
I predict the 2080 and Radeon Vii will trade blows in actual games, though I feel pretty confident that the 2080 will win in the overall majority of them.
Could be wrong. We will see.
