Can a 5 fps increase make an area in a game playable for you?

I am asking because I may try to defend the purchase of a very expensive Nvidia RTX card based on performance in some games in some conditions and not just for bragging rights. I've heard a couple times that a 5 fps gain can make the difference for some gamers to get their favorite parts of games to be playable. And I see in charts the Titan RTX is sometimes 5 fps faster than the 2080Ti at 4k with the graphics maxed on some action and role playing games. Not saying that's true for below 4k but I game at 4k.

Some are going to say that's a sad way to look at it meaning I can't possibly defend the purchase based on what I said above. I got the Titan RTX mainly to say I have it at first. But now I'm trying to use the logic above to maybe show in a few cases the small extra boost could reduce the choppiness in some demanding areas so that it's just playable enough. It's not about fighting scenes for me, I just like exploration so I can live with 30 fps but the higher the better of course.

I found at least one case for me where it's now just smooth enough for me. In Deus Ex Mankind Divided using 8x MSAA destroys all video cards in many areas of the game which it does to my Titan RTX. But in some areas it's noticeably faster than with my old Titan Xp and now practically playable for laid back exploration purposes in a few areas. 4X MSAA gives a much faster play and looks decent but I have to have the amazing bump in graphics quality with 8X MSAA in this game.

lol, what a question.

however the answer is maybe.

lets be honest, if you need to grasp at straws to defend your purchase (which i am not criticizing) than instead of giving a pathetic single digit like 5, use a nice sounding double digit percent like 15 or 19.

no matter what, just enjoy the card, you paid enough for it.

Remember the golden rule of statistics: A personal sample size of one is a sufficient basis upon which to draw universal conclusions.

I agree with looniam. Enjoy your purchase.

There isn't much choice for GPUs currently, if UHD is your preferred resolution.

I am of the opinion that it's far more important to enjoy your purchases than it is to try and justify them.

Ok I realize going from a Titan Xp to a Titan RTX is usually or always a bigger boost in fps in games than from a 2080Ti and I should've mentioned that in my first post. But my 5 fps increase theory could apply in some cases and maybe still in mine I think.

I guess I'll have to try Deus Ex Mankind Divided with a 2080Ti some day at 8x Msaa then I'll know if I wasted the extra money on the Titan RTX. Or maybe you can kind of determine it from tests posted on the net as some of them do include benchmarks in 8x Msaa for the game.

Stop using absolute values without any reference and start using relative values.

20 vs 25fps is much different than 240 vs 245fps. At best you would be looking at frame times, not fps as well.

I'm glad to say I rarely go under 70fps any more

I've played games in the 20-30fps range sometimes, like Metro2033, Crysis

Not sure about the prices where you are but here a Titan RTX is about twice the amount of a 2080 TI.
All that for a 5fps? That’s only $200 per FPS so it’s all up to you if it’s worth it?

Quit trying to find reasons to justify it, just enjoy it.

Hi,
RTX Titan is not worth the costs seeing 2080ti is half as much and still blows titan Xp to shame

Gaming is just a matter of disabling rtx.
