Specifications for GeForce RTX 2080 Ti

Hi everyone,

Firstly, I hope I categorized this correctly.

Secondly, I was wondering if anyone knew of where to find / who to contact for the specifications on the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti. I am a mechanical engineering student writing a term paper on this piece of hardware.

The only thing I could find was:

  • Site: https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/graphics-cards/rtx-2080-ti
  • User Guide: https://www.nvidia.com/content/geforce-gtx/GEFORCE_RTX_2080Ti_User_Guide.pdf

This information is very minimal, I guess. I’m looking for something geared more towards engineers and not regular users. Something along the lines of a 30+ page PDF would be even better. The goal is to find information that shows as much about the product as possible, down to the way it’s wired if at all possible.

Thank you!

None of that is available publicly for a consumer product like the RTX 2080 Ti.

Such documents do exist of course, but they are only shared with manufacturing partners, under NDA.

For products that are intended for enterprise use (vs. consumer products), in some cases slightly more information is available to the general public. Still nothing like schematics, but there are a set of specifications that are compiled and available. Here is one example:

The PCIE cards do follow standards for mechanical and electrical form factors. PCIE standards are not always easy to access/understand, but with some digging you may find something of interest.

As a CS dude whose minor was mechanical engineering (I originally planned to go into robotics, in case anyone wonders) I am curious: what would be the exact topic of an ME term paper dealing with a specific GPU? Any insights appreciated.

Thank you Robert!! I really appreciate the help and prompt response. I am thinking of changing this research topic now, thanks to you, I won’t be stuck in this dead end.

Njuffa - it’s specifically a computer organization class. It’s a term paper that is weighed similar to a midterm or final exam and the topic is quite broad except for this specific piece of hardware / graphics card. The goal is to look into how it processes data and perhaps analyze that with what I’ve learned in the course to pull together a conclusion for why these cards are so good at what they do (gaming in this case). Things like how it targets the CPU and other components of the PC to achieve its performance! :)
