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.
